    Default Favorite Drug Store Mascaras?

    I am just getting into makeup and this week I am on the quest to find the best mascara. So far, Maybelline Colossal in the big yellow tube is the best. it separates every lash and has volume.

    What are yours?

    I read the thread title as Drug Store Massacres. How do you choose a favourite?

    Hands down, L'Oreal Voluminous. My girlfriend who works at MAC Cosmetics says that not only do all the girls at MAC wear that mascara, but the girls in the nearby counters like Estee Lauder, Clinique swear by it too. So cheap and so effective.

    Ditto. I love it. It's got an awesome brush. The only thing I wish it did was hold a curl better, but it's not marketed for that. I'll sometimes use a curling mascara (right now it's Rimmel Sexy Curves) under it to hold the curl, but then I put Voluminous on top.

    I gotta chime in and rave about voluminous. LOVE IT, wont wear anything else. I use carbon black and cannot say again how much I JADORE this mascara. I have spent ten times as much for mascara and none have worked as well.

    My least favorite is that pink and green tubed mess.

    i also like maybelline colossal. it's all i've used since it came out.

    i've used voluminous, but i find it to smear a lot for some reason and i end up with a smoky eye look even if that's not what i was going for. and, i can't wear waterproof (makes my eyes itch). i want to love it because i like the brush so much.

    I have been hearing good things about voluminous..I think I'll check it out while Ulta has a sale $5 for any L'oreal mascara


    Which Voluminous is better original or carbon black?



    also has anyone tried the million lashes?

    You get a great curl if you use your eyelash curler BEFORE you put mascara on.

    I do use an eyelash curler before mascara, but I have straight lashes and even using a curler, it won't hold without a curling mascara.

    As for Voluminous Blackest Black v. Carbon Black, I like the original in Blackest Black better. It seems darker than the Carbon Black to me and less likely to smudge.

    I love L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen. It has a huge brush which I love.
    I have stick straight lashes. I heat the lash curler up with my blow dryer and clamp the thing down for about 10 seconds. I have to do it twice for each eye for the curl too stay all day.

    I've used maybelline mascara since I first lived in SoCa - I currently wear one in a green tube, who knows the name...
    I buy it when it's on sale or two for one or some other offer and then bin it after 6 months.
