12 Best Drugstore Mascaras
Drugstore mascara that doesn't flake, smudge or run? It does exist. Our reviewers ranked the best drugstore mascara
So, to get bat-worthy lashes, we turn to the most essential of all makeup: mascara. In fact, even if you were born with long, full lashes, a coat or two of quality mascara can be the difference between looking dull and looking fresh-faced, wide-eyed and youthful.
However, not all mascaras are created equal. That's where this list of the best mascaras comes in. The best mascara lengthens, volumizes and curls your lashes. It's also flake-free and smudge-proof. On top of that, the best mascara comes with a well-designed brush that doesn't leave a single eyelash without mascara, as well as a formula that doesn't massacre your lashes when you remove it at the end of the night.
The best part about mascara (as opposed to say, foundation or anti-aging serum) is that price doesn't dictate quality. In fact, we scoured through thousands of reviews to find drugstore mascaras that readers believe are comparable, if not better than the leading high-end brands. Once and for all, say goodbye to mascara flakes and smudges, and hello to gorgeous, long, easy-to-come-by lashes.
