We love a luxurious beauty splurge, but when it comes to the best drugstore mascaras, we don’t need to break the bank for the sake of a good makeup day. Considering mascara’s short shelf life (experts recommend replacing yours every two to three months), opting for a wallet-friendly formula is the way to go. Thankfully, some of the best volumizing, lengthening and defining mascaras can be found at the local drugstore — and they won’t flake off on our cheeks by lunchtime.
Whether you want to achieve long, lush lashes or an everyday look, these formulas are a total score. Check out our picks above for the 10 best drugstore mascaras to buy right now.
