We all love long, luscious looking lashes, don’t we? My go to makeup product is a good mascara. Even on days when I don’t feel like wearing any makeup I cannot step out the house without making my lashes look va va voom. I have tried quite a fair share of different mascaras where the drugstore versions where always been my favorite. So in this post I share the best drugstore mascara in the market which won’t burn a hole in your pocket.

1. Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara($2.99)-

This mascara is super affordable and looks pretty basic. It has no extraordinary looking wand or anything but the formula is amazeballs. It volumizes the lashes like no other and also lengthens them. This one is a dupe for the Tarte Camera Lashes Mascara.

2. L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara($9.99)-

This one has the thinnest wand among the list which helps in catching even the tiniest of the lashes and lengthens them whilst adding more volume.

3. Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara($6.99)-

The curved wand and the formula in this one is a match made in heaven. While coating the lashes it adds volume and also lengthens the lashes giving almost a false lash effect.

4. Avon Mega Effects Mascara($10)-

The packaging on this one is quite intriguing but the innovative applicator and the formula makes all the difference. The applicator while coating also curls and lifts the lashes up which makes them look super perky and long.

5. NYX Doll Eye Mascara($9.99)-

There are couple of different variants in this line but my favorite is the long lash one. It has fibers in the mascara formula which gives amazing length and volume to the lashes without clumping.

6. Rimmel Sexy Curves Waterproof Mascara($8.99)-

If you’re a fan of waterproof mascaras then do give this a try. 100% waterproof formula doesn’t smudge or budge and is long lasting. The brush on this one separates the lashes, lengthens and also volumizes them.

7. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara($8.99)-

Maybelline is one brand which makes some of the best drugstore mascara. I especially love this mascara because it is super affordable and gives the lashes a false lash effect without giving spidery lashes.

8. L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara($8.99)-

If you like the regular L’Oréal Voluminous Mascara but hate the clumping then this is minus that which is a win-win. It is jet black in color and adds oodles of volume and length to the lashes.

9. Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Mascara($6.99)-

If you want natural looking lashes opt for the washable version which gives a clean and natural look. If you like the dramatic lashes then get your hands on the waterproof one which when layered makes the lashes look super long and voluminous.

10. CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara In Very Black($8.99)-

Love the formula on this mascara, very black in colour. This mascara adds lots of volume and drama to the lashes. Apply a couple of coats it’ll look like you’re wearing false lashes without any clumps.
