Finding your go-to mascara is a spiritual experience. Everyone has their personal preference, whether it’s curling or volume-boosting and comb-wand or traditional wand. And while sometimes we’re willing to splurge on some really great makeup products, mascara doesn’t need to break the bank. We’ve rounded up five of our favourite budget mascaras for you to add to your beauty roster this summer.
Proof that you don’t need to kick your coffee habit for a new mascara, Essence Lash Princess gives you all the oomph you need for less than the cost of your daily latte. The “cobra-shaped” wand boosts volume, adds length and separates your lashes for a bat-worthy look, usually reserved for Disney princesses. The formula, though not waterproof, has some serious wearability and may even last you until the final stroke of midnight.
