Mascara is my favorite makeup product. It can be worn with or without eyeshadow and liner, is the finishing touch to any no-makeup makeup look, and is something that I can’t leave the house without putting on. When I’m shopping for a new mascara, I like finding one that will give me a bold and volumizing look, but by no means do I want to break the bank for some defined lashes. Here are some great drugstore mascaras for the fluffiest, boldest lashes ever!

Ardell Beauty Top + Bottom Precision Mascara, $16

I absolutely love this mascara because of its dual wand. Whenever I apply mascara to my bottom lashes, I always end up with mascara under my eyes or clumpy lashes that look more like spider legs. With Ardell Beauty’s Top + Bottom Precision Mascara, you can define every lash for a bold look. 

Black Radiance Waterproof Mascara, $4

We already love Black Radiance for their inclusive and diverse makeup lines, but their waterproof mascara is a game changer! The brush defines and creates full lashes while reducing clumping; and, at only $4, it’s a steal.

I absolutely love NYX Cosmetics. They have great products at a fantastic price point. Their Doll Eye Mascara uses “a unique blend of natural oils and nylon fibers” to extend, define and create incredibly fluffy lashes.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara is a classic. It thickens, defines and extends to give you and your lashes a bold finish. There’s a reason why this formula has been around for 40 years.

This mascara works WONDERS. The wand has plastic bristles which work to define and separate (to avoid clumps), and the little spiky ball at the end works great to get lashes at the corner and edge of your eye, as well as your bottom lashes.
