Review: Fluffy, Fuller Lashes on the Cheap with Jordana Best Lash Volumizing Mascara

Something deserves to be said about $2.99 mascara that works.

By the Gods, I bet Hell froze over and the dead are roaming the earth if we can buy under $5 mascara that works.

Well, Jordana Best Lash Volumizing Mascara brings it! Longer, fluffier lashes are all yours for $2.99 and tax.

Jordana Best Lash Volumizing Mascara is a super cheap volumizing mascara that actually works. Seriously, I’m the first one to turn my nose up at $2.99 mascara…but I promise, this one brings quality to the table.

The bushy brush application keeps things traditional without any bells, whistles, or overly large applicators that can poke an eye out. The formula is light and creates not only great length but super fluffy, fluttery lashes too that hold curl fairly well without feeling stiff or crunchy after application.

I noticed application was kinda iffy and rubbish on un-curled lashes so I do recommend a little curling prior. A few swipes of this on curled lashes creates beautifully full fluttery lashes. The proof is in the pudding, see my before and after pics!

If you’re not willing to splurge on Tarino’s new mascara, this one does the trick well at a couple of bucks. There’s something to be said about mascara that only costs three bucks and produces some pretty damn nice results.

Who knew?

Worthy of a Muse Approval if I dare do say so myself.

Tried it?

Do share!

    Heard about it on the qvc boards a few months back. On me it lengthens well but not much volume at all. Since I have lattisse enhanced lashes, it made them look stringy. Tossed it. But at $2.99 ($3.49 in some places) it’s worth a try.

    Excellent! I have three Walgreen’s close by, and I need a new mascara. This looks great!

  • Lili

    I read the raves about this product on MUA, and I’ve been meaning to try it (because how could you not?!), but I’ve been to lazy to get off my butt and search for it. However, your review has given me a renewed sense of motivation. Thank you!

    I totally LOVE THIS STUFF!

    It doesn’t flake all over, and stays put.. even if I use it on my lower lashes. It makes my lashes look fantab and I am pretty sure this has bummped L’oreal Volumous carbon black off the HG list!

  • Jane

    The first time I used it I was like “meh”. But I gave it a second go around and was pretty darn happy. Try NYC’s City Curls. It’s another inexpensive mascara that I love! No smudging. =))

  • Christina

    Nice! I too am a mascara snob (love my Burberry) but if I can save $27 then I’m up for it! 🙂

  • Mary the Muse Militant

    That looks like a real good mascra. I’ve heard great stuff about Jordana mascara and your pictures prove it.

  • lexi

    this is approved by moi as well, this is my HG mascara, thanks to that nouveau chick (I know…I cheat on you sometimes…but I swear, it didn’t mean anything!)

    I wanted to love this mascara because everyone raves about it, but unfortunately it seemed to irritate my eyes, and I rarely have bad reactions to eye makeup. 🙁 But I must be the only person on the planet who doesn’t love it–the lady at Walgreens said they couldn’t keep enough in stock it’s so popular!

  • Nikki

    I really like this mascara!! It’s my favorite! It makes my lashes looks volumized and dark and it doesn’t flake or smudge! Even if I cry it doesn’t budge! The only thing I don’t like is it’s a pain in the butt to remove 🙂

  • Liz

    Jordana has some lovely products out right now. It blows me away when stuff that’s cheaper than even normal drugstore prices performs as well as or better than department store lines!
