Battle of the Drug Store Mascara's

Well now that I seen so many people say Cover girl Lash blast is their favorite mascara I'm going to have to go get it and try it out. We have CG Volume exact, Maybelline-the colossal volume express. Loreal Telescopic Explostion, Revlon Grow Luscious plumping Mascara, Neutrogena Healthy Lengths and Almay Intense I-color. 

I scored each on a level of 1-10 with 10 being the best. 

I love my mascara to length, add intense volume and be dark black

CG Volume Exact- This one wasn't thick enough or black enough for me. It also didn't lengthen well. Score-2

Maybelline Colosal Volume Express- This mascara also did not add volume or length well enough for me. Found myself trying to put lots of coats just to achieve the results I wanted. Score-2

Loreal Telescopic Explosion- Great volume/thickness of mascara, added great length to my lashes and was a dark rich black color. The only negative thing is the bristles on the brush were thin so they didn't gather enough mascara and I had to reinsert it in the container a couple of times to get more mascara. But the small brush made it easier to be more precise to whatever lashes you were on instead of working on the ones towards your inner line while accidently leaving clumps on your outer eye which you see sometimes in full brushes. Score-8

Revlon-Grow Luscious Mascara-Accidently got this is dark brown. Ew! The volume and lengthening was okay. Didn't love it but didn't hate it. Score-5

Neutrogena Healthy Lengths- Awesome mascara! Great Volumining, nice long lashes, and perfect dark color to add intensity to my lashes. Score 9.5

Almay Intense i-color- This mascara was free when I got an Intense I-color so I thought it probably stinks. But its actually really good making my lashes nice and dark, thick and long. Works great! Score-9

Prices: Vary
Where to buy: any Target, CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart

  1. FYI... for me the Revlon Grow Luscious really seemed to help maintain some lash length & health. I use it as my first coat & then apply my fav; Tarte lights, camera, lashes over it.

  2. Personally for drug store mascaras I like Voluminous Million Lashes by L'Oreal. If I have to buy drug store masara that's my go to. I tried Maybelline Illegal length- yuck. Thought it would be like Kiss Me from blinc, which I adore. That stuff is awful.

  3. Thanks for input guys def going to try the Voluminous million lashes and will also try your suggestion Karigold since I have both of those. I love mascara!

  4. I love the Telescopic Explosion as well! A new one that I just tried is the Revlon CustomEyes. Got the first one for free, and then found a ton of them for $3 at Big Lots... the formulation is thick, so you can tell it's going on, and the bristles actually move to give you two different brushes. :)

  5. I'm going to have to go have to go to my local big lots and find that one too. Thanks for letting me know.
