One question I get from women is, "What is the very best (insert beauty product here)?" You want to know if you are standing in a drugstore aisle, what mascara to pick. If you are in a fancy department store and you want the very best mascara that will make your lashes appear long, full and lush while never, ever running onto your face, you want to know what counter to head to. Well, I've got your scoop.
Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara
For such an inexpensive mascara, this one packs a mighty punch and gets overwhelmingly positive reviews on the top review sites for going on smoothly (no clumps), looking natural and staying put throughout the day.
It's a simple mascara so don't expect maximum va-va-va-voomness. One reviewer on Makeupalley said teenage girls shouldn't bother with this basic mascara as it would be "boring" but she loves it because it helps perfectly coat her sparse over-40 lashes.
For a great overall budget mascara, consider L'Oreal Voluminous. InStyle Magazine named L'Oreal Voluminous its Best Beauty Buy mascara. Enhanced with hair conditioners panthenol and cermide-R, this product is a must-have. Makeup artists love it because, like the other best mascaras, it adds volume without clumping.
CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara
When Eva Chen, the beauty director at Teen Vogue told the amazing blog "Into the Gloss" that this CoverGirl mascara is "the best mascara on the market," I immediately put it on this list. Why? Chen is a product junkie, her bathroom is like a mini Sephora, and she's tried every mascara on the market. Why does she love a $10 mascara the most? "If you want clean, defined, super long lashes, it’s great,"
Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara
Maybelline is beloved for its mascaras and this is their best-reviewed one. (Yes, MUCH better reviewed than Great Lash). It's a good drugstore mascara for daytime use. Don't expect excess volume for going out. For nighttime, consider using this as a base and apply over it a mascara made for volume. Also popular in waterproof form.
