Big Bold Lashes Drugstore Style

I am mascara obsessed. Without it, I feel completely naked, and not in a good way. It's one of the two products I HAVE to apply even if I'm running to the grocery store (the other being lipgloss).

So I've got a drawer full and Ziploc bags full of mascaras that I switch out daily depending on my mood of lengthening, fattening, or both. And there are three drugstore options that I feel stand the test of time and that I always run back to for cheap mascara drama without the falsies!

1. L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara in blackest black ($6). Picture of actual product below. This brush is great because it separates and grabs just the right amount of lashes.

2. L'Oreal Paris Extra-Volume Collagen mascara ($8). The ad with Eva Longoria Parker shown at top of blog along with the actual product. I love this mascara, but come on, she's got some strip lashes on in this ad don't you think??

3. Maybelline Lash Discovery With Mini Brush ($6). This teeny tiny wand (shown above) makes it easy to get all those itty bitty lashes on your lower lash line and keep it from getting all over your face in the meantime!

Rediscovering drugstore mascara is one way to treat yourself this Thanksgiving holiday that will get you fat in a good way...fat lashes that is!

My two musts are lipgloss and mascara!!!
I think they are simple, and I don't care to wear a ton of foundation or powder--but they both make my eyes pop!

You are my mascara twinkie! I have all three of those mascaras in my arsenal (although the extra volume collagen is drying and can flake), and usually layer at least two of them for my everyday look. Eyes and cheeks are my musts for leaving the house. I look tired and sickly otherwise : (
