Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

Hey guys!

Just wanted to know what was your favorite drug store and high end mascara. I'm kinda looking around to see if there is a good do-it-all mascara that isn't so clumpy! I really want something lengthening and seperating with some volume. I'm currently been going back to Jordana extreme lash volumizing mascara (drug store) and UD's Big Fatty Mascara. Jordana's is amazing especially since I got it for two dollars! It just clumps if I apply a lot of coats. UD one is pretty good, still getting used to it though! Just thought I'd give my thoughts on those two mascaras as well. (:
Thanks guys! 

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

I like They're Real by Benefits.  You can get a small tube for $10.  Stila is also good.

 

And the magazines alwasy have Mabelline Great lash as one of the best Drug store brands.

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

Though I haven't really found a drug store mascara that I could ever stick to or go back and repurchase, Maybelline or Loreal would be the lines that I would hit up first above brands like Cover Girl, Revlon, or Almay.

 

For a higher end mascara, my lastest love is Fairy Drops Scandal Queen. I was on the market for a new curling mascara that was long lasting/water resistant (adding eye drops to my contacts is never fun if runny mascara is involved Smiley Tongue) and I found it in the FDSQ formula!

 

Is it the new formula of the UD Big Fatty you're using or the old purple/yellow tube?

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

It's the new one. I honestly like that it makes my lashes really black and they don't feel stiff. I should really go out and buy a curler since I think it would hold a curl. I've heard a lot about the FDSQ mascara I'll have to give it a try Smiley Happy

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

It's my new fave, Cargo had a great curling/lash conditioning mascara but I think it was about $35, and to replace it every 3-4 months, that adds up quick!

 

FDSQ is a bit easier on my pocket and is at least water resistant!

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

Covergirl or Maybelline for drugstore mascaras. Dior or Estee Lauder for high-end mascaras. 

 

If you really want lenghtening/volume, try a lash primer underneath. Tarte have one, it dries whiteish but does make your lashes look lush (say that fast 3 times) when you use mascara over it.

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

I haven't found any drug store mascaras I really like.  My new favorite is Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara.  It really is amazing!  It immediately give long, thick, CURLED lashes.

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

My favorite high end mascaras are Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes and Benefit's They're real.

For drugstore I'm really loving Revlon's Photoready 3D Volume and Loreal Voluminous.

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

I really like They're Real and Dior's new Overcurl mascara. I already have naturally curly lashes, but this gives them the extra 'oopf' in just ONE coat.

Whimsically yours,

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

My favorite high end is Bare Minerals Flawless Definition mascara, I will definately have to repurchase that, and my favorite drugstore I have never actually bought! Its the Falsies Waterproof, I remember using my friends once and it did really well, not to mention standing up to summer's weather.

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

For high end, I loved Urban Decay's "vintage" Big Fatty mascara.  The large, fluffy brush was amazing!  I also like Benefit's Bad Gal lash, which is similar to the original Big Fatty.  Buxum Lash was also pretty good.

 

For drug store, I am currently in love with Cover Girl's Clump Crusher.  It's a drug store version of UD's original Big Fatty.  I also like Maybelline for mascara.

 

 

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

Although my favorite mascaras are high end (like Bobbi Brown's Everything Mascara and Giorgio Armani's Eyes to Kill), I go through mascara like it's my job (super fair lashes so usually the only time I don't wear mascara is when I'm sleeping) so now I usually use drug store brands in order to save $$.  

 

That being said, a few of my favorites are:

 

Most Maybelline Mascaras (Great Lash is highly rated by a lot of beauty pros).  I also like Mega Lush Volume and Falsies.

 

Covergirl Lashblast fusion or Lashblast Volume.  I'm usually not a fan of Covergirl, but I actually really like this mascara.  I actually think I prefer this to maybelline's mascaras.  It doesn't flake/smear, makes my lashes look long and full, doesn't irritate my eyes, and doesn't get clumpy.

 

Hope this helps and best of luck!

maybelline falsies and mac zoom waterfast lash. Smiley Wink

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

I've tried a ton of mascaras but I always end up going back to Avon's Supershock, not Supershock Max, just regular supershock it's the only mascara capable of lengthening  and volumizing  my stub of eyelashes

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

Hi Melissa93, 

 

My favorite high end mascara is a toss between the Dior Show Extase and the Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum mascara. 

 

As for a drugstore brand I am really liking the Maybelline Cat Eyes which can be a bit thick and cause some clumps if you aren't careful but the shape works great for my eyes and really deposits more mascara onto my lashes for more intensity.

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

Cover Girl's Lash Blast line is actually really good. It's so good that I thought CG might actually have started making good products (!) so I tried some of their other stuff. Not so much. Yuk. But every Lash Blast formula I've tried has been great!

 

I really like Buxom for it fullness and drama! It's great for going out (or staying in with your guy...) I find it takes a little extra effort since it's prone to clumping and needs a little extra combing, but I think it's worth it.

 

I also like Smashbox's Hyperlash. I've had several people comment on how long and pretty my lashes are when I've got it on. Smiley Happy

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

I've always loved the Covergirl mascara that has the pink and green lid...it's probably the cheapest they make, it i grew up using it. My high end fav is Benefit Badgal Lash, the wand is fat and I don't end up with clumps.  

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

My absolute favorite is YSL Shocking.  But because it sounds like you are looking for clump free you may like Benefit flawless definition as someone else mentioned.  That used to be one of my favs until Shocking. 

Re: Favorite Drug Store and High End Mascara?

Buxom Amplified Lash mascara for lengthening and volume.  Still my favorite.  Haven't really been able to wear some mascaras that are drugstore OR high end because they irritate my eyes/allergy (I'm looking at YOU, Dior mascaras), but it sounds like the Cover Girl Clump Crusher would be one to try.  Supposedly  you can layer on 30 coats and it still won't clump.  I might have to try that just to see if my eyes react to it.
