30 Of The Best Mascara Brands For Any Budget

Lets talk mascara! I don’t know about you ladies, but I love mascara. If I had to choose only one makeup product to wear for the rest of my life, that’s what it would be. Whether you’re looking for more of a natural look or the biggest, boldest lashes; there’s a mascara here for you. From dirt cheap to high end, here are 30 of the best mascara brands and products (in no particular order) for all sorts of occasions!

1. Maybelline – Colossal Big Shot Volum’ Express ($6)

A wonderful mascara that can give a nice natural look with one coat, or can be built up with several coats for darker lashes. This is a great everyday mascara!

2. Maybelline – Colossal Volum’ Express ($5)

This is the older version of the product mentioned above, and is also wonderful. With 5 different colors to choose from, and a waterproof version as well, this is the best mascara to keep handy for all occasions.

3. Rimmel – Volume Colourist Mascara ($6)

This mascara is great if you’re going for a bolder look. One coat darkens and thickens the eyelashes, preparing you for a great night out.

4. Maybelline – Lash Sensational ($6)

Another one of my personal favorites! This mascara is not only cheap, but it comes in 7 different colors. It is the best mascara if you’re looking for a full fan-effect.

5. CoverGirl – LashBlast Volume ($6)

This lash-blasting mascara comes in 3 different colors and it’s waterproof!

6. Loreal Paris – Voluminous Original ($5.50)

This volumizing mascara is the best mascara for building up thicker lashes. It can give you 4x fuller lashes. Plus, it comes in NINE different colors!

7. Maybelline – The Falsies Volum’ Express ($5)

Have you noticed Maybelline really has a lot to offer?  They have some of the best mascara products by far. This particular one is one of my all time favorites. I have bigger, bolder lashes every single time.

8. CoverGirl – LashBlast Clump Crusher ($6)

Just as it says in the name, this is the best mascara if you have a problem with clumps. Nobody wants to be walking around with clumpy eyelashes!

9. Maybelline – Great Lash ($4.50)

An oldie but a goodie. This is your typical ’90s girl mascara with the pink tube and green lid. It was the first mascara I ever owned, and I would buy it again today.

10. e.l.f – 3-in-1 Mascara ($3)

If you haven’t used e.l.f. products, you are missing out. This is by far the cheapest makeup brand out there, and most of it is actually great quality. This mascara lengthens, defines, and volumizes lashes all in one coat.

11. e.l.f – Volumizing and Defining ($2)

This is the best mascara if you are looking for something cheap but still want good voluminous lashes.

12. Too Faced – Better Than Sex ($23)

Moving into more higher priced products, this mascara is seriously the best. One of my friends recommended this to me last summer, and I have absolutely loved it ever since. This mascara is intense in color and gives great volume. It also comes in a waterproof version.

13. Benefit – Roller Lash ($24)

This mascara is one that both of my roommates use, and it comes in three different colors. This mascara claims to curl and lift your lashes!

14. Urban Decay – Perversion ($22)

Urban Decay never disappoints. This creamy formula is a great mascara for lengthening your lashes.

15. Tarte – Lights, Camera, Lashes ($23)

This 4-in-1 mascara gives a great voluminous finish, as it lengthens, curls, volumizes, and conditions your lashes. A seriously great product!

16. Dior – Diorshow Iconic ($30)

This mascara has a curved brush and is great for curling your lashes.

17. Dior – Diorshow Waterproof ($29)

A similar formula to the previous mascara, however with a straighter brush. This formula is waterproof, so bring on the sweat, tears, and swimming pools!

18. Clinique – High Impact ($18)

Clinique has always been a go-to brand of mine, and this mascara does not disappoint! Just a simple formula that gives you a more natural lash look.

19. Urban Decay – Cannonball ($20)

This ultra-waterproof mascara will protect you in any watery situation.

20. Tarte – Lights, Camera, Splashes ($23)

This is the same Tarte mascara as the one previously mentioned, but it is waterproof. Summer is here, ladies, and we are ready.

21. Benefit – BADgal Lash ($19)

This is a great mascara if you’re going for a bolder lash. It comes in 2 different colors.

22. Benefit – They’re Real! ($24)

This lengthening mascara will prevent you from ever needing to glue on a pair of falsies again.
