Lush lashes for cheap

2Best volumizing mascara

Revlon Lash Fantasy Total Definition Mascara ($8.99) -- If you want thick, volumunous lashes that are fanned out, don't miss this mascara. It doesn't irritate your eyes, smudge or flake.

3Best lengthening mascara

L'Oreal Lash Out Mascara ($8.48) -- This mascara dries quickly and lasts all day without flaking. It builds, separates and lengthens lashes to amazing lengths.

4Best one-coat mascara

Rimmel London Lycra Lash Extender Mascara ($7.49) -- This mascara doesn't flake or clump, and it's easy to reach every tiny lash. It lengthens, darkens and thickens your lashes in just one coat. For a dramatic look for evening, add two.

5Best overall mascara

Cover Girl LashBlast Mascara ($7.24) -- LashBlast comes in a variety of formulas: Volume Blasting, Lengthening, Luxe and the newest: LashBlast Fusion. We're fans of them all, but our favorite is LashBlast Luxe (in the pink tube). This mascara delivers long, lush, beautiful, bold, dark lashes.
