The 4 Best Mascaras You Can Buy at the Drugstore

As someone who has not paid for her own mascara in nearly 15 years (I know, right? Perks of being a beauty editor/writer...), please listen to me when I tell you: Drugstore mascaras are the very best. It's true! I'm not saying there aren't amazing expensive mascaras out there (there are!), but I can use literally anything I want and I always, always come back to the cheap stuff. These are the four I love best.

1. L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Feline Mascara - This is my current favorite that I wear nearly every single day. I'm a longtime fan of the original L'Oreal Voluminous, but now I'm super into this one. It leaves my lashes long and fat (but not crazy-voluminous--perfect for every day) and also gently curled. Very sexy and flirty. LOVE.

2. Rimmel Wonderlash Mascara - I once tested about ten bajillion mascaras for a "best new mascaras" story at Brides. (I literally wore two different formulas--one on each eye--for weeks on end.) This was my absolute favorite at the time and definitely still ranks high for me. It's actually kind of similar to the Voluminous Feline. It's volume plus length that's very buildable, and it also leaves your lashes very defined with no clumps whatsoever.

3. CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof Mascara - It's very, very hard to find a good waterproof mascara, but I always come back to this one. It won't leave your lashes crunchy and it really lasts. 

4. Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Collossal Washable Mascara - Love this when I want tons of volume. (It's a great date-night/night-out mascara.) You can swipe on coat after coat and it never gets clumpy. So good!

Have you guys tried any of these? And do you have a drugstore favorite that's not on this list but should be? Tell me below!

#3 is my go-to so it's nice to hear I'm picking one of the better ones! So many of them smear or smudge but this one has always been a winner for me! Great list!

superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Bless you!
