This blog post is not about finding the best do-it-all drugstore mascara. One tube can only pack so many effective ingredients to achieve your desired effect. Which is why I’m launching this mini series on the best drugstore mascaras for length, volume and curl. This inaugural post is all about the best lengthening mascara. I specifically went shopping for tubes that promise longer lashes. Check out the results below!
Revlon Lash Potion by Grow Luscious: It made my lashes darker and noticeably thicker and longer. The triple-groove wand can coat your lashes fully in just one sweep but be prepared for excess formula to smudge on your lash line.
Flower Beauty Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara: This lash comb picks up very little product so applying this mascara took forever. I saw more of an increase in volume than I did in length.
Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara: This defined and lengthened my lashes in just one coat but it’s a bit on the flaky side. Compared to the other drugstore mascaras, this seemed more difficult to remove.
CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Extensions Mascara: To be honest, I had very low expectations for this mascara but in just two coats, it lengthened and defined my lashes without a clump in sight.
L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara: The super skinny brush made it easy to reach even the tiniest of my inner corner lashes but it was very flaky and it had a bit of a sticky texture.
The Winner: A great mascara should define, separate and lengthen without clumping. Am I right?! I love how the curve of the CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher Extensions Mascara brush gives lashes an even application in just two coats.
What’s your favorite drugstore lengthening mascara?
I’m a huge fan of CoverGirl’s clump crusher! I think it’s deceiving because the packaging is so bulky and frankly, unappealing. My other drugstore favorite is Maybeline’s Rocket!
I agree! You’d never think such a great formula is in such a bulky tube!
