top 5 mascaras under $25

A trial-and-error method can be costly as well as frustrating when searching for the perfect beauty product. So I’m taking the guesswork out of the process, one item at a time. For the first installment of this series, I’ve rounded up five of the best mascaras under $25.  

L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Waterproof Mascara,  $9.95: This super skinny brush with short bristles gives a great lengthening effect. Just a few swipes on the upper lid and my eyes immediately looked bright and elegant.

CoverGirl Lashblast Mascara, $7.99: A perfect choice for clumpless lashes, this volumizing option creates a sleek, dramatic look without appearing overdone. Start at the base of the lid and wiggle the brush outward for maximum coverage.

Elizabeth Mott It’s So BIG Volumizing Mascara, $19.99: This is the best curl I’ve ever achieved without using an eyelash curler. The contoured brush is curled at both ends to create a half-moon shape and emphasize the corners of the eye.

Maybelline New York Lots of Lashes Mascara, $6.40: This product is fullness to the max. The mascara is silky smooth while the brush offers perfect coverage and varied application. The bristles gradually lengthen to catch every lash.

Ultra Dramatic Luxury Mascara, $18.20: I fell in love with this mascara. I’d never heard of the company before but the result is truly incredible. It gives the appearance of longer, fuller lashes and bright, wide-awake eyes. The slightly curved brush with compact bristles separates while coating and lasts a full days wear.
