L’Oreal Paris Makeup Lash Paradise Mascara
If you’re after both volume and length, but don’t want your lashes to look flaky or chunky, this tube is for you. Over 1,800 Amazon reviewers gave it a five-star review and swear it works just as well, if not better than, high-end department store mascaras that cost much more. Its big brush delivers big volume, but reviewers say you may need a q-tip to clean up the excess around your lash line.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Washable Mascara
Coating every lash on your upper and lower line is easy with this mascara’s curved, tapered brush, which can easily reach your most inner and outer lashes. Amazon reviewers call it the “holy grail” of mascaras, and advise starting with its smaller end to coat lashes, and then using the entire brush in an upward motion to spread the product and remove clumps.
