Musings of the Day: Fav Drugstore Mascara (US Drugstore)

Since discovering my favorite drugstore mascara I’ve wanted to shout the good word of it to all the masses…..well I already have kinda but I’ll tell you about it again after the jump!

Ok, I’m speaking of US Drugstore brands here as there are way too many awesome Japanese drugstore mascaras that rock my little world. If you choose it does have to be a US brand…those be the rules kiddies!

My choice would have to be L’oreal Double Extend Mascara, whoa I really like this stuff, sincerely. I can’t help myself but this stuff is pretty damn good. I’ve been using it daily for about a month now and simply lurve it. That’s saying something as I normally fart in the general direction of any and all drugstore mascara finds in the US, sorry if you’re a lover, I happen to be a leaver. But Double Extend changed my very life and made me a believer that great mascaras may still dwell within a US drugstore….

Brb I think I just heard an angel sing!

Name your fav mascara.

Remember US brands only, no cheating and playing with the big guns, we all know Japanese drugstore mascara rocks it so you must choose a US brand…if you can that is….

It’ll be hard but I have confidence that you can do it!

    My fave mascaras are: CG Lash Blast; Avon SuperSHOCK [yeah yeah yeah, not exactly drug STORE, but still drugstore price!]; Max Factor Lash Perfection Volume Couture, MF 2000 Calorie, and the 2000 Calorie Lash Plumper, even though it’s just got a bigger brush than the regular 2000 Cal., but whatever, lol!
    Those are the ones I can think of right now, I’m pretty darn sure there’s more, oh! and JANE Fiber-whateverwhatever thing, I LOVE it in purple, YAY!

    okay I’m done

      Charmine still haven’t tried Lash Blast! Doh! need to do that 😀 I like SuperSHOCK too it’s pretty good!!!!!! I really need to give DS mascara more of a chance I’m such a little snob!

  • Ally

    loreal voluminous carbon black! im serious! get on the carbon black bandwagon ppls!!!!!!!!!! (its more pigmented than diorshow’s blackout)

  • Kristin

    I love love LOVE CoverGirl Lash Blast mascara! It’s a little bit more pricey than some of the other drugstore mascaras, but definitely worth the extra buck or two! The one in the red bottle has subtle sparkles in it that I absolutely LOVE!!!! But the original orange bottle works wonders too.

    • the Muse

  • Janet
