My experience has always favored high-end, as opposed to drugstore, mascaras as the best option for a feminine, flirty fringe. However, I recently tried a $3 mascara — at the drugstore — and would like to share my thoughts!
Hidden in the corner of Walgreen’s is the (rather obscure) Jordana display. While passing by the display, I picked up the Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara along with a few of their Modern Matte lipsticks (that review coming soon, too!).
The packaging is sturdy but standard:
The formula is not too wet, but not too thick (or gel-like).
And now for the before & after!
(Top to bottom –> Bare Lashes, 1 Coat, 2 Coats)
The result is thick, voluminous, dramatic lashes — comparable to my Holy Grail mascara, Too Faced “Better than Sex” mascara. These lashes do not flake off throughout the day, as so many drugstore mascaras tend to do. There is a small tendency to clump, but I feel this is always part of the territory with the most volumizing mascaras available. I’ve been reaching for this mascara every single day since purchasing it.
The best part about this mascara? It’s a killer bargain — at $3.
Can’t wait to try out other Jordana products!
Verdict: 4.5/5 Stars
