Maybeline Lash Sensational Black Pearl Mascara, $8.99
Cult Product: Benefit they’re real! Mascara, $24
Looking for lengthening and volumizing mascara? We’re in love with this one by Maybeline. It’s much more advanced than the brand’s legendary drugstore favorite, Great Lash. You’ll have maximum control with its curved fanning brush, which does especially well on lower lashes. This mascara is just as effective at lengthening and curling as its high-end counterpart from Benefit.
