Let’s face it: We all want long, luscious lashes. Unfortunately, unless you are Mila Kunis, you might be blessed with average-looking lashes like the rest of us. On the bright side, we live in the 21st century, so it is easy to “fake” those perfect lashes.
But, you don’t have to spend a ton of money to get quality makeup. With every year that goes by, companies find new ways to bring you the high-end products you deserve for a fair price. All you have to do is simply walk into the nearest Walgreens or Target and let the fun begin!
- L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Washable Mascara ($9.99, shop here)
Have you seen the movie Bambi? If you want that “doe-eyed” look, then this mascara is for you. The term doe-eyes refers to big, dark eyes. When you purchase this mascara, that is exactly what you are going to get. This mascara promises to elongate your lashes to get a wide-eyed look. It comes in black and brown, and with a price tag of $10, it’s hard to pass up.
- CoverGirl Lash Blast CleanVolume Mascara ($7.99, shop here)
Have you ever purchased a cheap mascara only to leave the house with clumpy eyelashes? Well, with this CoverGirl product, you never need to worry about that. The wand combs through your lashes with every pass, leaving you with thick eyelashes without that clumpy look caused by other drugstore brands. For only $8, this is another great find to add to your shopping list.
- Wet N Wild Mega Volume Mascara ($2.73, shop here)
Wet N Wild offers the least expensive mascara on this list. We all know that with cheapness comes speculation of quality. Surprisingly, this mascara will leave you with smooth-looking lashes that are clump- and flake-free. Not only do you get a quality product, but it can’t hurt to spend less than $3 to try this one out.
- Physicians Formula Rosé All Day Mascara ($8.99, shop here)
We know what you are thinking: “A mascara made from rose water?” As surprising as this ingredient sounds, this mascara moisturizes, lifts, and lengthens your lashes at the same time. With another affordable price tag, this one is yet another gem to try. The best part is it’s made with plant-based ingredients (with the star ingredient being rose water, of course).
- Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara ($8.99, shop here)
The last entry on our list is a classic. Maybelline has been around forever, and everyone can identify it as a trustworthy drugstore brand. This mascara is not only going to make your wallet happy, but it will also leave people questioning why they are spending their life savings on pricier mascaras that probably do the exact same thing.
