For such a tiny little tube, mascara tends to inspire big opinions. When it came to selecting the best CoverGirl mascaras, the highly opinionated beauty lovers on Amazon, as well as Reddit’s many beauty subreddits, had plenty to say. Naturally, the brand’s best-selling LashBlast Volume Mascara, with its ability to boost your lashes into the stratosphere, was mentioned repeatedly, as was Clump Crusher, a favorite with those who prefer a more natural look.
But since you’ve got to replace your mascara every two to four months to avoid eye infections, you might as well play around with some of the brand's other, lesser-known mascaras to see what else works for you. Beyond those two perennially popular picks, what else should you swipe over your lashes? Based on ratings and reviews, here are three fantastic and affordable Covergirl mascaras, ahead.
But first, some mascara tips. For best results, start with a stellar eyelash curler. When you pull out your mascara wand, wipe off any excess clumps with a clean tissue. Then, apply the mascara to your lashes using a bit of a wiggling, zig-zagging motion, rather than a straight-upwards swipe. If you plan on applying two layers of mascara, be sure to let the first coat dry before swiping on another. (If you're using primer, you don't have to wait for the primer to dry before using your mascara.)
