Since you guys have loved Parts I and II of my New Mascara Mania series, I've decided to bring you Mascara Mania, Part III: Drugstore Brands, in response to several reader requests for the best budget options. Here's a list of my favorites from both old and new products.
Physicians Formula F.L.A.T. Fabulously Long And Thick Mascara is the ultimate full-coverage mascara. Its customized brush has both long and short bristles to really grab hold of every lash for maximum results. It even has a handy mirror built right into the back of the shaft! Buy it here for $6.95.
How could any drugstore mascara post overlook L'Oreal's trusty line? My favorite happens to be the oldie-but-goodie,L'Oreal Voluminous Original Volume Building Mascara. This original formula really lengthens and thickens, separating each and every lash. Plus, it won't clump, flake or cake, and it also keeps your lashes soft. Buy it here for $6.99.
To see the rest
Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara gives you unbelievably long looking lashes. It goes on smoothly while separating and conditioning all of your lashes. I personally love the medium consistency of it and find that a tube lasts quite a long time. Buy it here for $5.89.
Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara makes lashes lush and full. When you are going for that smoky eye look, this is what you'll want to grab! It won't smudge or run, and it washes off with no problems if you use a little cleanser and water. Buy it here for $5.79.
