My Top 3 Drugstore Mascaras♥

I've forever been a massive lover of mascara - I still am and probably always will be! I own multiple mascaras, simply because I'm not satisfied with just one, I love experimenting with different mascaras. I don't think I could ever settle for one..

I've tried many drugstore mascaras in the past, some I've loved, some I've hated and some which I've had a love-hate relationship with. In my collection today, I've found three which have impressed me, all from the drugstore, which I recommend. You can find all three of these in Boots.


First up is a mascara which was raved about here in the blogging world at it's release. It's the Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara and mine is in the shade black. I'm not the biggest fan of the upper brush, as sometimes it can go clumpy. However, I love the lower brush (pictured above). I often use it on my upper lashes as it adds a lot of length! If you use the lower brush, the mascara is definitely true to it's name!


Next up is the Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara and mine is in the shade glam black. The wand is insane - it's guaranteed to give a lot of volume! Sometimes, too much mascara is on the wand, meaning it can go clumpy, so, I wipe off any excess onto the tube. If you prefer volume over length, I would recommend this! I personally like to brush through my eyelashes after applying this mascara, it gives a feathered out look. 


My final one is No.7 Lash Impact Mascara and mine doesn't have a shade but it's just black. I was a little unsure of this at first, as the wand is quite different to what I was used to. After testing it out for a while, I decided I loved it! Again, I'm always afraid in case it makes my lashes clumpy, so I wipe it, and my lashes look long and more voluminous too! I know some people mightn't class this as drugstore, but it's available in Boots, and is only £10!

What are your favourite mascara(s) that you would recommend?

  2. I used to use Big Eyes but ever since I tried Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara I feel I can't go back! But they are a bit more affordable so maybe I'll go try it out again!

    1. You could always mix them about! Use the Too Faced one some days and a Maybelline one another! I love all three of the ones I mentioned so you should give them a go! x

  3. You can hardly ever go wrong with a Maybelline mascara. I have to try that colossal but since they're always bringing new ones out, I usually attack those first lol.

  4. I remember loving the Colossal Mascara from Maybelline. I want to try that boots no7 one. My current favorite mascara is the Noir Couture mascara from Givenchy. I think the boots one will be on my wishlist for next time <3

    1. I love it! You should definitely try the No.7 one, it's amazing! Even the name of the Givenchy one sounds fab! x

  5. The Maybelline Big Eyes with a lower lash brush sounds promising. I didn't know there was a mascara that came with two brush shapes. I want to try it :D

    I own the Maybelline Colossal Volume mascara and have similar problems with it sometimes clumping but I love the brush. It really does catch a lot of lashes to give volume and is one of my favs.

    1. Yeah it comes with two brushes and they're different shapes! I remember when it came out, I was desperate to try it, especially when I realised it came with two brushes!

      Least I'm not the only one! Shame it clumps because it truly is a great mascara x

    1. The Big Eyes is so good, especially since there's two wands! I love the No.7 one, I use the Big Eyes and No.7 one together and it's the best combination ever! x

  7. Maybelline Big Eyes does sound interesting, my lower lashes can be such a pain to get coated!

    1. The lower lash wand is small enough to use on lower lashes! x

    1. Me too! I have various mascaras so I can choose whether I want lengthened eyelashes or voluminous lashes! All these are inexpensive! x

  9. I want to try out the Maybelline Colossal now! I haven't always been a drugstore mascara gal, but after trying the Covergirl Lashblast, I am more than willing & you've given some great options!

    1. If you're after volume, it's ideal for that! Some drugstore mascaras are let-downs, but it's just the same as highend mascaras! And thank you x

  10. Can you believe the Maybelline Colossal mascara was the first ever drug store mascara I tried? It still has a special place in my heart but I do think they may have tweaked the formula a bit and I don't enjoy it as much as I did in the past...lovely round up of mascaras and I may try some of your recommendations...xx

    1. Aw was it? That's annoying, I hate when companies do that to products you love! Thank you! x
