9 Best Drugstore Mascaras for Short Lashes to Lengthen Them

Maybelline Sky High Mascara

This is the drugstore mascara that I would suggest the most out of any that I have tested. It has a long, narrow brush with precisely spaced bristles that separates and coats the lashes. 

Essence Lash Princess Curl & Volume Mascara

Even by the standards of drugstore mascara affordability, this one is less expensive than high-end alternatives. The formula is expertly built onto the lashes by the larger-than-average brush.

e.l.f. Lash Xtndr Tubing Mascara

Because of their easy-to-remove yet budge-proof formulations, tube mascaras have won me over as a devoted devotee. This one satisfies options for a higher class. The semi-wet product glides on effortlessly without ever looking clumpy.

L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

This L'Oréal mascara is a good option for those seeking for buildable volume. Its broad brush can be challenging to use on your corner lashes, but it has a good capacity to hold product, so you won't have to keep dipping.

e.l.f. Lash N' Roll Mascara

Individuals who have straight lashes are aware of how difficult it may be to seem elevated. If that describes you, I suggest using an e.l.f. eyelash curler to raise your lashes first, followed by adding a curling mascara.

L'Oréal Telescopic Original Washable Mascara

If you have trouble with mascara clinging to your eyelashes, give this one a try. I've been a proud member of this well-known mascara's fan club since high school. It has a sizable following.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

If you feel your lashes drooping throughout the day, Maybelline's lifting mascara is ideal for you because of its curved brush, which hugs your lashes nicely and grips them right at the base to give them a strong boost. 

L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara

Everyone should carry around a multipurpose mascara that applies lightly and can be built up to produce a dramatic impact in their makeup bag. That's exactly what this L'Oréal one accomplishes. 

COVERGIRL Lash Blast Cleantopia Mascara

There are a lot of brown mascaras on the market, and I have a serious bone to pick. The majority of them have a black-brown color that resembles plain black in the eyes rather than the rich, chocolatey brown that I so desperately want.
