Budget Mascaras!

Mascara is one make up item that i could use every day in a month and would stop wearing it the next month. I don't even know why! But one thing for sure is that i never splurge on high-end mascaras. Mascara shelf life is only 3 months, 4 months top. I don't think i would really spend $30 on something i can use for only 3 months. Besides, drugstore brands produce excellent mascaras! Here are two budget mascaras that i'm currently wearing everyday.

Maybelline probably makes the best drugstore mascaras out there, and my favourite has got to be The Rocket Volum Express mascara. I love how this mascara basically lengthen the eyelash without adding an exaggerate volume to the eyelash. I'm also not entirely a big fan of brush applicator (weird, i know), so i'm glad that this one is made out of plastic. The waterproof formula is just perfect.

The other mascara i'm loving is Maxfactor's False Lash Effect Waterproof mascara. Slightly more pricey than Maybelline, but works just as great. The wand applicator is also made out of plastic, but is somehow chubbier(?) than Rocket Volum's. What i love most about this mascara is the packaging; it's black and sleek. Eventhough the formula is waterproof, it's surprisingly easy to remove!

A little sidenote - i never really understand why drugstore mascaras in Australia costs $19 or even more :(

So, do i like it? I love waterproof mascaras, and this two has exceptionally great formulas.


  1. This is great advise thanks! Another mascara which I like is Natural Collection Lengthening Mascara, it's cheap too! If that is any help for you?
    Please check out my blog and let me know what you think about it.
