Drugstore Mascara Reviews

I’ve reviewed a lot of drugstore mascaras in the last year. I’ve done video reviews for some of them along with other products but mostly I’ve grouped the reviews together. I thought I’d put them all together (the videos) in case your wondering about trying something new. Drugstore mascara always makes me happy because you can get a $7 tube that easily out does a $30 one. I love that.

I’m working on tackling some high-end mascara reviews in the next several months and I’m thinking about adding live demo’s to the videos so you can see in real time how a mascara performs. I have been thinking for a while that talking about a mascara is just not enough. You have to see it in action sometimes to figure out if it’s right for you. Let me know if you think that would be helpful.

    Thank you… that was really helpful. I’ve tried a lot of different mascaras, yet always go back to my CG Lash Blast length topped with Lash Blast volume. Nothing else performs as well for me.

    Yowza that’s a lot of views :) I’ve been on a drugstore mascara kick lately. Right now L’Oreal Voluminuos Carbon Black is standing out. Trying to pair down my mascaras. I may end up stick with tarte’s Gifted mascara and Lancome Definicils and/or Hypnose Drama. Hell the money I’ve spent trying out drugstore I could have got a tube one em. I have one more drugstore one that I want to try out again and then I’ll make some decisions.

      I love L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black. That and Colossal are my favorites of all time drugstore wise. I have some great high end ones I’m trying now. The Lights Camera Lashes lash primer is really good, I’ve been using that all week with Dior New Look. I am going to try Laura Mercier Faux Lashes (I think thats the name) next or Trish McEvoy Lash Curing Mascara. I heard the Tarte Gifted Mascara is really good. I am going to catch the presentation tonight for Tarte on QVC. I’m skipping the TSV but I want to see what else they have.

    Thanks for this post! Unfortunately I’ve been cursed with itty bitty barely there lashes, so I’m always on the hunt for new mascaras. I had the Colossal Volume Express but it was too wet and messy for me so I returned it. Right now I’m using Loreal telescopic on my bottom lashes and Lash Stiletto on my top lashes. I got a Kat Von D Sin-Ful Lash sample with my Sephora order yesterday and I used it for the first time this morning. O-M-Geee! Tha just might be my new FAVE! It has a nice, ful brush and doesn’t seem to clump and the product isn’t too wet.
