My Top 5 Drugstore Mascaras

Hello my readers, today I'm going to talk about my favorite mascaras.
Before I start I have to say I have thick eyelashes but there aren't very long and they are straight. My main issue with mascaras is creasing and  smudging on my oily eyelids and I end up looking like I'm part of „KISS“ band (the rock band which had black smudge eyes).

I tried a lot drugstore and high end mascaras and from everything I tried I always go back to Max Factor and L’oreal mascaras. I usually mix two of them: Max Factor as a base then L’oreal on top. I put mascara only on top of my lashes and I want them to look very thick, long and dramatic.

1Max Factor – FALSE LASH EFFECT full lashes, natural look mascara

 Max Factor – FALSE LASH EFFECT


This mascara is very good for my lashes, doesn’t smudge or crease and it’s long lasting. It separates them and helps maintain the curve. It has rubber brush which doesn’t leave any clumps. It provides long natural look as stated and can be build up if needed. Since I like more dramatic look I always put another mascara on top for more thickness. It costs £7.31 you can buy it at local drugstore or on Amazon

2L’oreal Paris – VOLUME MILLION LASHES SO COUTURE 

L’oreal Paris – VOLUME MILLION LASHES SO COUTURE

This is very good mascara with rubber but very soft and moving brush head. It gives my lashes dramatic and thick look. But if I use it alone my lashes can look clogged up.
I absolutely love it on top of Maxfactor False Lash effect. These two give my lashes everything I want and need. I will continue to purchase this item. You can buy it in local drugstore or online at Feelunique for 14.99€ (9ml).

3. Max Factor – CLUMP DEFY EXTENSION FALSE LASH EFFECT

Max Factor – CLUMP DEFY EXTENSION FALSE LASH EFFECT

This mascara is very good for very natural look with long separated and curved lashes. It has rubber brush head which curves lashes really nice and keeps the curl. I use it mainly when I want natural defined eyelashes or as a base for other thicker mascaras. It doesn’t smudge or transfer on my eyelids. You can buy it at Boots or at Amazon for £7.99.

4. L’oreal Paris - VOLUME MILLION LASHES EXCESS

L’oreal Paris VOLUME MILLION LASHES EXCESS

This is very good mascara something similar to Volume Million Lashes so Couture with different rubber wand. It defines my eyes and gives them thickness while avoid clumps and clogging up. The only downside is that dries pretty fast and after sometime like 2 weeks or so starts to have fall out. If I put it in the morning after few hours I have small black dots under my eyes. I also use this mascara combined with others. It cost 12.72€ for 9ml. You can buy it at the drugstore or on Feelunique.

5. Max Factor – MASTERPIECE TRANSFORM high volumising mascara

Max Factor MASTERPIECE TRANSFORM

This mascara is very good but I wouldn’t recommend it for daily use because it’s very hard to remove. I tried everything but it always takes a lot of time and energy to completely remove it not to mention that while doing so you can also pull your eyelashes. I use it only if I need long lasting power stay mascara and thick dramatic lashes. It’s ideal for going out because you can sweat and dance and it won’t come off or smudge. It has unusual wand and smell but coat your lashes very well. This Max Factor mascara helps to emphasize my lashes. You can buy it in Boots or on Amazon for 7.53£.

6. Max Factor - 2000 CALORIE waterproof

Max Factor 2000 CALORIE

This last one mascara is my al time favorite. I started using it in my early teens when I fisrt got into makeup. I always have one in my cabinet for times when I want thick but natural eyes. It has great staying power also this waterproof version doesn’t smudge.  It’s very affordable but very good. It’s only 5,29 £ you can but it at local drugstore or on Amazon.

In conclusion I want to state that the effect each mascaras gives you depends on your natural eyelashes and look preferences. I like mine to be quite thick, dramatic and defined. I use mascara only on my top lashes.
