If you know me at all then you know how mascara obsessed I am!! My mascara obsession is right up there with my skincare obsession…it’s real y’all. I’m talking if I were stranded on a desert island and could only pick one beauty product (assuming I’m already stocked up on sunblock) I would ick mascara all day ‘err day. And I don’t discriminate on my mascara either, I love drugstore mascara, high end mascara and everything in between. As long as it makes my lashes look full, long and thick I don’t care if it costs $5 or $30, mmmmkay?
So let’s talk about drugstore mascara!! The other night I was at Walmart browsing the makeup and thought it would be fun to do a blog post about my fave drugstore mascaras, which just so happen to all be by Loreal although I did pick up a Maybeline mascara to try! I’m not Loreal biased or anything, that just seems to be all I have ever used from drugstores, LOL!!
First up let’s talk about the first mascara I ever used. My Mom always used this mascara when I was growing up so when it came time for me to wear mascara that was what she bought me. Luckily my Mom had great taste in makeup and it’s still around today! I’m talking about the one, the only Loreal Voluminous Mascara, my OG mascara! I use the Carbon Black now but I’m pretty sure I just used plain black back in the day because Carbon Black wasn’t around yet, I am OLD y’all!! #ThisIs35 But this mascara is legit AMAZE. It gives fantastic length and volume and is my official go-to drugstore mascara.
Next up is Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes. I haven’t used this mascara in a long time but it is so so so good! This mascara gave me more length than volume so I always paired it with my OG Loreal Voluminous. Today I would pair it with the Loreal Voluminous Primer!!
Speaking of the Loreal Voluminous Primer this is the first mascara primer I ever tried and still my fave!! I have tried several high end primers but I keep coming back to this one. It really gets that volume going and isn’t sticky and doesn’t make my lashes clumpy looking.
And last, but not least, is my newest Loreal mascara obsession, Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise. I tried for the first time last summer and fell in love!!! It’s very similar to a high end mascara I love but at a fraction of the price. I actually find myself wearing it alone a lot because it gives the perfect amount of both length and volume!! LOVE IT!!
Here I am with just the Lash Paradise on, no primer or anything…
…see, it’s perfect!!
The whole point of this post is that you can have fabulous lashes from a mascara that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. There are also several more drugstore mascaras that I didn’t mention in this post like Get BIG! Lashes Triple Black Mascara from Essence (it’s under $4!!!) and Doll Eye Volume Mascara by NYX (under $10!!!) that I din’t get a chance to take pic of. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that this post is in NO WAY sponsored by Loreal and all opinions are my own. These are really great mascaras!! Try them!!
What is your favorite drugstore mascara??
