    I Tried Lots Of Cheap Mascaras To Find The Best Ones Because I Am Frugal

    Sound the alarm, because these mascaras are under $10 and they're GREAT.

    Hi hi, I'm Lauren! I recently tested drugstore eyeliners and since I found a few new faves, I decided to try drugstore mascaras as well (because extra cash means extra frickin' pizza hollaaa).

    SO WELCOME TO THE MASCARA AWARDS! To show you how each mascara performed, I applied two coats to only one eye without any type of primer so you can compare it to my sad, mascara-less eye.

    Here are my top eight nominations that ARE worth your hard-earned money:

    1. Maybelline Volum' Express: The Falsies Mascara ($4.99)

    2. L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara ($5.29)

    3. CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara ($6.29)

    4. L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Original Mascara ($6.59)

    5. No7 Extreme Length Mascara ($8.99)

    6. L'Oréal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara ($7.99)

    7. Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara ($4.99)

    8. NYX The Skinny Mascara ($6.99)

    Here are the other mascaras that I tried, but found they just weren't worth it:

    The results are in and the winners are...
