10 Best Mascaras

Photo: New Beauty
Introducing a friend or sister to new beauty products is lots of fun, and mascara makes a fabulous stocking stuffer. Whether a woman wears it everyday or not, most of us keep a tube of mascara in our makeup bag.

Some beauty products require spending big bucks to get better ingredients because top ingredients matter, but mascara isn't one of them. Regardless of whether you save or splurge, all formula's of mascara do basically the same thing. There are some very fine brands of drugstore mascara available.

A great mascara lengthens and volumizes your lashes without clumping or flaking off, and you shouldn't end up with raccoon eyes at the end of the day. Sometimes a great  mascara has an innovative brush that makes separating, lengthening, or curling the eyelashes easier. One brush might be designed to give you natural, yet defined lashes, while another is designed to create drama.

Here is a list of 10 Best Loved MascarasThey have different price points, but get high ratings from hundreds of customers. Did your favorite make the list?:

1) Avon Big and False Lash Volume; 2) Covergirl The Super Sizer; 3) Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill

4) L'Oreal Telescopic; 5) Lancome Definicils; 6) LeVolume de Chanel Waterproof; 7) Marc Jacobs O!Mega Lash Volumizing

8) Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Waterproof; 9) Nars Audacious; 10) Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof

What's in my makeup bag, you ask? Answer: Lancome Definicils. Chanel is the one, I wish I weren't too cheap to buy, and Maybelline is the one I will switch to in the future, as the drugstore brands have really stepped up the quality!

What's your favorite mascara?

  1. Like you, I don't believe you need to spend a fortune on mascara. I always buy mine at the drugstore. I alternate between Maybelline Lash Defining Mascara or Stiletto and L'Oreal Volumizing in the gold tube. It has a point at the end of the brush, which I use to just touch up the lashes I've missed. It works beautifully. I always use a lash brush after the mascara has dried to keep things looking natural.

    Cheers, M-T

    1. Oh Marie-Thérèse, I, too, love L'Oreal! Great mascara and other makeup! Maybelline also has really stepped it up on their entire line, including blush, eyeshadow and lipstick!
