Friday Favorites: Drugstore Mascara

Hi All and Happy Friday!

If I were told that I had to get rid of all of my makeup and was only allowed to keep one item, I would hands down choose mascara over everything else!  I love how mascara opens up my eyes and makes me look more awake.  When it comes to drugstore mascara, L’Oreal is my favorite brand, and I use 2 of their mascaras together to create my favorite drugstore lash look.  The mascaras that I use are the Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara and the Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara – I use both of these in the color Blackest Black and both are in the non-waterproof formulas.

L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes

(L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes in Blackest Black – I use this to get volume and length.)

L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt

(L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt in Blackest Black – I use this to separate the lashes and to darken the base closest to my lash line.  This one gives the appearance that I’ve lined my upper water line, which I normally don’t do because tight lining tends to irritate my contacts.)


So here are the before pictures…




To get the look that I like, I apply one coat of the Voluminous Million Lashes followed by one coat of the Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt.  I don’t use a lash primer or anything like that to prep, I just give my lashes a quick little curl so that they have a bit of lift to them.  And here are the after pictures…



When I use this combo, I tend to get asked if I’m wearing false lashes, and people are usually surprised when I say no!  It’s crazy what a difference mascara makes in my overall appearance!  These mascaras don’t flake, they don’t run onto my under-eye area, and the curl holds ALL day as neither of the formulas weigh my lashes down.  I know it may be excessive to use 2 different mascaras on a regular basis, but I just love the end result of using both of these products together.

What is your favorite drugstore mascara?!

I hope you have a great weekend!

  1. I dont use drugstore mascara because I sell beauty products and therefore use them also. But before starting my business I must admit I was into Mabelline for my cosmetics. Like the idea of using two mascaras…think I will try that.
