6 Best Drugstore Mascaras

This might be my area of expertise. I am a little obsessed with mascara. If I had to choose a favorite feature about myself it would definitely be my eyelashes. I am always on the hunt for the perfect mascara. These are my favorite mascaras (that I’ve tried) in no particular order. You can buy any of these products at your local drugstore, but I posted links for Amazon.com because 1.) I’m a big online shopper 2.) Their prices are super competitive 3.) If you find a product you love and do Subscribe & Save you can save even more money and get free shipping

1. Maybeline The Colossal Volum’ Express

Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara, Glam Black 230

Alright, I know I said in no particular order, but this is my favorite. I love that it doesn’t have the silicon brush that so many have now. I am not someone who makes a big fuss over curling and separating my lashes out perfectly, I feel like this mascara does all the work for me and makes for perfect eye lashes. You can buy it for $5.97 at Amazon.com.

2. CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara

CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara, Very Black 800

This is another one that I feel like does all the work for me. It makes my lashes long and full and separates them nicely without making a big fuss. You can’t go wrong with this one. You can get it at Amazon.com for $9.47

3. Maybeline Great Lash Lots of Lashes

Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Washable Mascara, Blackest Black

If you are looking for a mascara to make your lashes LOOOONG, this is the one for you. I got this and ended up giving it to a friend after a couple uses because it made my eyelashes a little too long (is that a thing?). If you have shorter lashes, definitely go for this. There are lots of variations on this one, so make sure you get the right none. It’s $5.29 at Amazon.com

4. CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara

CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara, Black 865

This is the tube of mascara I have in my makeup bag right now, and I have to stay it is moving up on my list of favorites. This one makes me eyelashes feel super full. Plus, it’s another no fuss mascaras that doesn’t require much work on my part to make my eyelashes look awesome. You can buy it at Amazon.com for $7.99

5. L’Oreal Double Extend Lash Fortifier & Extender Mascara

L'Oreal Double Extend Waterproof Lash Fortifier & Extender Mascara, Black

If you have tried a double-sided mascara you probably know that they are kind of intense. Intense in an awesome way. Every time I wear this mascara I get asked if I am wearing false lashes. So, if false lashes are the look you are going for, this is the one for you. You can buy it at Amazon.com for $8.30

6. Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Cat Eyes 


I have just recently discovered this mascara and I really love it. This one takes  a little more work and a few coats, but it really does give fabulous, full results! I would compare it to Benefit BadGal Lash mascara, because I think it’s that awesome. You can buy it here for $5.94 or at any drugstore for around $6.

    Colossal and Lash Blast by Covergirl were my faves but I recently tried Maybellines new Mega Plush and it is soooo AMAZING! It doesn’t clump at all (I know it’s hard to believe :)) I was kind of skeptical because it said it was gel but I’m so glad I tried it.

      I haven’t tried that one yet, I guess it will be next! Thanks for the recommendation and thanks for reading!

    I LOVE this list! Mascara is a hard thing to find. I either get flakes or panda eyes. My favorite cheap-o is ELF 3-in-1 mascara. If you want to spend some bucks, It’s So Big by Elizabeth Mott is killer. I got it in my little $10 Ipsy glam bag. Love it!

    PS-I found you on Pinterest!

    I just wanted to let everyone know this awesome fact. If you buy your makeup at walgreens there may be something you didn’t know before. I’d you buy a product and after a few uses decide you don’t like it they will take it back. I do this especially with foundation because it’s not very easy to find your perfect shade. Just figured I would share with everyone! Happy shopping!!

    For an updated version you should definitely add Covergirls Super Sizer Mascara. It works wonders and I would say better than high end mascaras like Benefit! Just convinced my sister to pick one up yesterday.
