Review: Cheap Thrills with Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

Dude, go to Walgreens, get some Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara.

Apply it.

Look in the mirror.

You’ve arrived.

How much it?

Two bucks and ninety nine scents. The best three dollars you’ll ever spend in your makeup loving life.

This stuff is nice!

Not a ton of fanfare here with a straight applicator with basic bushy bristles. The formula has a nice inky black pigment which is a plus. But overall, I look at it and just shrug…

I’m not excited.

I apply it.

And I start singing, “Come on get happy!”

Somehow, someway it creates super long lashes. Not entirely fuller mind you but hey, you can’t have everything people! I love how this lifts lashes and creates a ton of good for you lash length plus the formula is incredibly lightweight so my lashes aren’t droopy half way through the day.

Personally, I get the best results with a lash curler and a little of this but if you’re not a fan of curling your lashes this does just as well without.

At this price, I’m going to say it was the bestest cheap thrill I’ve experienced in a long time. Only issue? I’d love a little more volume but if I combine it with another mascara I can get fatter and LONGER lashes.

Loves it.

You can’t afford to not buy one and try it yourself.

Muse Approved.

Available at Walgreens or shop it online at

    How’s the flaking with it? I am in FL and looking for a good summer mascara. Love the wand and the results, but flaking is a big no no as I have severe under eye discoloration and I have to work at concealing.

    • Caitlin

      I mean, if it lasts a work/school day I guess that’s what matters. Just no flaking in the middle of that!

      • Caitlin

        Aaaah my previous comment didn’t work! Oops. I meant to ask about flaking, cause I live in FL and want a good summer mascara. If this would flake in such weather I’ll either go back to lash stiletto or go to illegal length.

          caitlin I never really have issues with flaking/smudging tbh! even in really HOT weather…so I’m a bad judge of this ;-D!

  • Rachel

    This is one of my FAVORITE mascaras!!! Very excited to see you like it too! I like it more than mascaras that are 8 times the cost!

  • Janlie

    I read about the Best Lash mascara on your blog Muse, and I hunted that tube of mascara down like no tomorrow. I wore it to a banquet and dude….I had raccoon eyes after 3 hours. It began smudging while I was making my way to the banquet….

    BUT I must say….the volume Jordana mascaras give is no joke. FANTASTIC. just…the smudging is terrible. :X

    • the Muse

      awwwwwwww no janile! I’m so so sorry hun! I hope I didn’t ruin your evening! 🙁 I didn’t have a single prob with smudging aw 🙁 sigh! I feel bad it didn’t work for ya sorry sweets!

  • Jane

    I am so happy you tried this! I love it. Have you tried NYC City Curls? You’ll love it at 2.99. 😉

  • JoElla

    I love this stuff! I am on my second tube. If you can’t find it check by the register in the beauty section.

    I ran out and bought this and hot damn I really like it, im used to paying $8-$30 for mascara that doesnt even perform half this good… it is NOT waterproof so if you have watery eyes or sweat a lot it may not be for you BUT if you dont have these issues, its great!

  • Laura

    I’ve tried a lot of different mascaras but this stuff is the BEST!! Holy cow! Even my boyfriend was like, “WHOA! How did you get your eyelashes so big?!” I don’t think I’ll ever buy another mascara. Yes! Yes! Yes!

  • yelena

    i b ought this before i saw ur review and i have to agree i love it! only problem is even tho it doesnt say water proof, you will probably need an oil based makeup remover for this. my regular face wash alone won’t get it off.

  • Clare

    I saw this on cherry culture when I was doing a big order and chucked one in just to try it out. I am soooooo impressed! This stuff is AMAZING. It adds crazy length and just the right amount of volume and best of all – it doesn’t budge! I’ll be repurchasing for sure!

    I absolutely loved this mascara. I found that if I stick the tip of the wand slightly into the tube and then gently bent it, I could shape it to an arch that perfectly matched my lashes. I got more curl out of it when doing that.
