These are my absolute favorite, HOLY GRAIL mascaras from the drugstore. From left to right: Maybelline Colossal mascara ($5), Maybelline Lash Sensational waterproof ($7), and the Covergirl SuperSizer ($6).
The Colossal and SuperSizer are a match made in Heaven and when I pair these two together, I know that I am always going to have a good lash day. I apply a good coat of the SuperSizer and then follow it with the Colossal, focusing on the tips of my lashes. This way I get volume AND length without my lashes looking clumpy. I have also applied these in reverse order and still get an amazing result. The SuperSizer is also my favorite for the lower lashes. The brush is not too big and it is easy to run the bristles through without getting mascara all over my under eye area.
The Lash Sensational mascara is a more recent find for me, but I fell in love with it after the first use. The shape of the brush gives great volume and length to my lashes and it holds the curl all day. I typically do not like waterproof mascaras just because when I go to take it off later I end up ripping out my lashes and can never get it all off. With this one though, I find that it is easier to take off than others that I have tried.
I have not had any issues with any of these mascaras flaking or crumbling throughout the day and no matter how many coats I apply (within reason) my lashes do not clump.
I highly recommend any of these for any kind of mascara look you are aiming for. These mascaras will always have a place in my makeup collection and I will continue to repurchase each one whenever I run out!
