The 10 Best Drugstore Mascaras Under £15

No need to fork out a small fortune for long, volumised lashes; chances are your local Boots has all the products you need for less than 20 quid. From blacker-than-black and drama-inducing formulas to lengthening and false-lash effect offerings, affordable mascaras can really pack a punch if you know where to look. That’s where I come in. I’ve rounded up the best drugstore mascaras in the UK for your money so that you can give your bank balance some TLC and look great doing it!


1. Maybelline Falsies

Thick and bat-tastic, my lashes received plenty of compliments after giving this affordable formula a try. I didn’t find it half-way down my cheeks at day’s end either always a plus.

2. No.7 Extreme Length

If you can get past the rather retro packaging – the neon green wand is rather, erm, ‘groovy’ – this mascara is a must for a dramatic look. Sure, the bristles are a little spiky, but they do their job, leaving no unwanted clumps.

3. L’Oreal Million Lashes Waterproof

Forget waterproof, L’Oreal’s Million Lashes mascara is 100% workout-proof. Sweat all you like, this hard-wearing formula will not budge, so you can flutter those eyelids all day long. The one drawback is that it’s a little tricky to remove – make sure you have a good supply of makeup remover before you apply.

4. Maybelline Colossal Volume

I’m a firm devotee to Maybelline’s mascara ranges, and this volumising offering mascara is no exception. Clump-free and long-lasting, it’s a no brainer.

5. Rimmel ScandalEyes

Best thing about this product is that it can certainly hold a curl. Worst is that it smudged a little under my eyes throughout the day – nothing a dab of miscellar water can’t fix though.

6. Revlon Ultimate All-In-One

Okay, so the product doesn’t quite do what it says on the tin; my lashes were volumised, certainly, but they were a little lacking in the length department. Nonetheless, it’s still an excellent product if you like a little drama around your peepers and you’re a little stuck for cash.

7. Max Factor False Lash Effect

Long-wear and hella lengthening, Max Factor’s False Lash Effect mascara gives some serious bang for its buck. Extra points for its easy removal – no extensive rubbing necessary.

8. Revlon Grow Luscious

While no great shakes on the volumising side, Revlon’s contribution to the mascara scene is pretty damn lengthening. In fact, it claims to strengthen lashes over time!

9. NYC Bold and Big

I do love a good bargain, so I could hardly resist putting this budget gem to the test. Wow, did it impress; expect night-out-worthy peepers for a cheap price!

10. Soap & Glory Thick and Fast

My favourite thing about this mascara is that it doesn’t clump – not an easy thing for a volumising product, which is why it is one of the best drugstore mascaras on the market!
