I've a confession to make: I ♥ MASCARAS! I never leave the house without mascara on: otherwise, my eyes look dull & tired. It's one makeup product I absolutely can't be without.
Because of my ♥ for mascaras, I've tried hundreds of products through the years & know from experience which mascaras are amazing & which are just horrible. These days, I can't justify spending over Rs.900 on any department store brand mascara, since I know about the incredible products for under Rs.450.
Searching for the perfect mascara amidst the clutter of the aisles?? I'm here to help! Below I'll show you 5 incredible mascaras under Rs.450 & help you find the perfect one to achieve your desired eyelash look.
1. Natural Looking Eyelashes: Avon Super Extend Mascara
Avon Super Extend Mascara: Rs.385
After falling victim for the great lash mascara hype, I was hesitant to use this much-talked-about Avon mascara. Fortunately, I gave it a shot & found my new favorite basic mascara!!
Super Extend helps define & thicken my eyelashes without making them look too fake. The wand is easy to use & will easily comb through your eyelashes: no clumps here!!! This is a classic mascara that has continued to be Avon's top sellers, year after year. To be honest, it is hard to find anything wrong with this mascara. It gives me the most amazing, natural dark eyelashes.
If you're looking for the perfect mascara to wear to work or college, I highly recommend Super Extend because it's not too heavy for day. However, if you're looking for a mascara to give you dramatic eyelashes for a night out, I recommend one of the other products below.
2. Defined Eyelashes: Colorbar Duo Mascara
Colorbar Duo Mascara: Rs.350
If you ♥ defined eyelashes, then this cult-classic Colorbar mascara is the perfect choice.
Duo is a very unique mascara: the comb has tiny little spikes, which help separate & define your eyelashes. While the unique wand works well to bring out your lashes, some people may struggle to use it at first. It can be difficult to control. However, it doesn't take more than a couple tries to get used to & once you learn how to use it, your lashes'll look incredible.
I absolutely ♥ the way this mascara makes my eyelashes look: defined, yet still natural-looking. This mascara is perfect for an occasion when you want your lashes to have a little more oomph, but don't want overly dramatic, fake-looking lashes. It'd work well for daytime if you like a look that's a little beyond natural.
3. Dramatic Eyelashes: Cover Girl Volume Exact Mascara
Cover Girl Volume Exact Mascara: Rs. 350
If you want dark, thick, long lashes for a party or night out, this mascara is the absolute best choice. I've worn Volume Exact on so many occasions & every time, people actually ask me if I'm wearing false eyelashes!
I'm always amazed at how long my eyelashes become when I apply this product. When you try it yourself, you'll actually see your lashes getting longer. Your eyelashes will be dark, dramatic & ready for a night out.
4. Fuller Eyelashes: Lakme Nine to Five Intense Volume Mascara
Lakme Nine to Five Intense Volume Mascara: Rs.350
When I first used Nine to Five Intense Volume I noticed how the mascara wasn't at all clumped on the brush. It doesn't have a smell I notice other mascaras have.
When I first used this I was really impressed. It really did curl my eyelashes, lengthen them, thicken them & in no way clump. There was never any flaking of the mascara. I felt it performed as well as pricey department store brands I've used. I found this to go on so easily, no need to worry about lumps or use an eyelash comb.
5. Lifted Eyelashes: Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara
Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara: Rs.260
This mascara has had rave reviews online, so it was my first choice in the mascara selection. At first, this formula appears very watery, but I noticed it does thicken up after about a weeks use. It lifts the lashes & also is inexpensive. It doesn't clump on lashes.
Have you tried any of these amazing products?? Or do you have any other recommendations? As a mascara lover, I'm curious on what mascaras you'd recommend. What are your favorite mascaras??? Let me know!!
