A reliable mascara tube is always handy, no matter how often you wear it or how casually. The best mascara brightens your skin and draws attention to your eyes with just a few swipes. Although this may seem simple, choosing the best mascara can be difficult. There are many things to consider: Is the mascara waterproof? Is it able to volumize and lengthen your eyelashes, or does it claim to do both? Is the bristles or formula prone to smudge, flake, clumping, or irritating sensitive skin. Is it affordable?

Many tons of mascaras can give you a look you want, regardless of whether it’s natural or fake. There are many mascaras available, with different wands, bristles and ingredients. Some mascaras are waterproof, which is great for getting ripped up. Others wash easily after a long day. Some have slender, comb-like bristles for definition and lengthening. Others have large, volume-building barrels that create falsie-looking curls. Some mascaras can be expensive, but the best drugstore mascaras cost only a few dollars.
