My Top 5 Favourite Drugstore Mascara's...

Since most people who are reading blogs (including myself) are students, or people who might not work or don't earn a lot, so I really want to focus on more affordable items on my blog rather than basically reviewing things that people can't afford or have to save up for. I find that a lot of of 'drugstore' products can be better or just as good as high end products anyway.♥

So let this be a beginning of many posts to come based on cheaper products!☺

I've tried soooo many mascaras over the years as it is definitely my number 1 beauty product I couldn't live without. So here are my top 5 favourites...

1. L'Oreal Miss Manga

Boots, £8.99

This comes in close first as my favourite, it applies so nicely and is a really dark, rich black so it really looks like you're wearing false lashes, if you want a natural looking mascara I'd stay away from this as you won't get that with it. It adds quite a bit of length and volume to your lashes without being too clumpy or anything. 

2. Maybelline The Falsies

Boots, £7.99

This mascara is so popular, I've seen so many Youtubers and Bloggers rave about it, even though it is a really nice, daytime mascara I wouldn't say it's my top favourite, but I would 100% recommend it whether you're looking for a natural look or not, it is really build-able and will probably suit short, stumpy lashes as well as really long thin lashes. It's definitely a mascara that I'd recommend you pick up if you don't quite know what you're looking for but you just need something new!

3. Soap & Glory Thick and Fast

Boots, £10

I came across this mascara a few years about and I wore this mascara pretty much the whole way through my last year at school because I loved it so much, but I think after my third or fourth tube ran out I never ever came back to it and lost my love for it, but then I ended up with this again as it was included in this years giant Soap & Glory box that they bring out each year over Christmas and sells out after a day (you know which one I mean?). So after I'd dumped it, I'm glad we have been reunited again, I like this for something to quickly apply that will look nice and natural but still quite thick, I also found that it takes ages to run out or get dry as over my year(ish) phase with this as I only bought about 3-4. Definitely recommend!☺

4. Revlon Lash Potion 

Boots, £9.99

If you're a fan of big thick chunky brushes then you'll probably love this, I'm not keen on the brush as I prefer quite thin ones but the formula of this mascara is so nice that I don't even care about the brush! Like the Falsies mascara, it can be used for a natural everyday look or for a false lash effect, it is so build-able and it definitely adds some length to your lashes. I don't have much to say about this one, it's just a really nice mascara!☺

5. Maybelline Big Eyes

Boots, £8.99

OK, so I saved the best till last! This is definitely my favourite out of the 5 and I have been reaching for this A LOT since I got it! What I love most about this mascara is the fact it has 2 brushes, 1 for upper lashes & 1 for lower lashes, they both do their job perfectly, the lower brush is a small thin brush that literally makes it so easy to get each bottom lash coated but without any mess under your eyes! The upper lash brush is more thicker and has a different shape but again, it makes it easier to coat each lash with little mess (I'm really messy with mascara lol). On the note of being messy with mascara, because this doesn't have a long wand I don't accidentally get a huge blob on my cheek when applying either! As well as the brushes being so amazing, the formula is really nice and I guess it does give you that look of 'Big Eyes'. I LOVE this!♥

Thank you for reading if you eventually made it to the bottom!☺
