I am going to do a quick review of a couple of drugstore mascaras that I picked up at Walgreens recently. The first one is NYC's City Curls mascara, which comes in a thin, pink tube and retails roughly about $2.70. I was fairly impressed! To be honest, I was not expecting much from this because of the low price, but it proved me wrong. I feel that it lifts my lashes while adding some volume, which is a bonus as usually (in my experience) curling mascaras lift but fail to add any thickness to my lashes. I definitely recommend this as an everyday-use mascara; you will get a steal with that price!
The second mascara I tried is Wet n Wild's Mega Volume. I think this retailed between $3-4, and it is not worth it. This mascara, instead of adding mega volume, seems to thin out my lashes. It separates my lashes, but not in a good way. There seem to be gaps in my lashes when I apply this, making my eyelid feel naked. At first, I thought it might be my application. But after trying different methods with this wand, it does not do much to amplify my lashes. Maybe my thin lashes are to blame, but the product fails to provide any volume. For that reason, I won't be purchasing this one again.
