My Current Favourite Drugstore Mascaras!

Hiii, as I sit here with a cold (boohoo), I'm glad I'm able to finally sit down and do a new blogpost since I have been insanely busy with work! So, I want to share with you guys my favourite drugstore mascaras as of current. And I want to post this up ASAP since Rexall (for my Vancouverians!) is having their promo - 50% off all mascaras!! (ends this thursday!!!!)

I decided to take this great opportunity to get a back up of my two fave mascaras that I have been using everyday! I used to never get waterproof, but now I have switched to WP mascaras as they hold the curl on my asian lashes so so so much better! I don't have super short stick straight lashes, but they will fall down if I don't use WP!



Here are my lashes bare and curled.


First is, Loreal Voluminous Original. - original price: $10-12


At first, I was not a fan of traditional bristles, and I enjoyed plastic bristles a lot more since they comb out my lashes better and not them. However, this brush doesn't clump up my lashes as much as other! I was also not a fan of this mascara at first, I thought: "Where the heck is the VOLUMINOUS part in this mascara?!". It was very "natural" but the more I used it, the more it grew on me! It makes a great base to layer another mascara with. I used Maybelline Falsies mascara on top and it was an amazing pair!


Next up, Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes - original price: $11-13


Now, again - was not a fan of this at first... This brush does have plastic bristles, however this packaging has a "clean sweep wiping system" so it rarely gets any product on the bristles so it takes a few layers and time to really build it up. But when built up, it does separate really well!


Both mascaras hold a curl very well, however I think the Voluminous Original holds up a curl slightly better and nicer (also depends on how well I curl it with my eyelash curler). They both don't lengthen a significant amount and the Voluminous Original thickens more than the Voluminous Million Lashes. However, the Voluminous Million Lashes does separate better and fans out your lashes, making it look like "a million lashes".

Hope you guys found this helpful and informative or even just interesting!

I honestly never used anything from Loreal haha. I always go for Maybelline or Revlon products. I heard good reviews of this mascara so I may have to try it out!

I went to Rexall today and picked up Prestige My Blackest Lashes and My Longest Lashes, and a 2 pack of Physicians Formula Jumbo Lash mascara... I want to go back and get more of the PF cause it gives a nice long dolly lashes with some volume look :D

oooh I love the comparison! I'm such a hardcore L'oreal voluminous fan that I don't want to try any other mascara but I like seeing the results of the million lashes!
