If you’ve ever walked into a drugstore with the intent to buy makeup, you know how overwhelming it is. Whether you’re looking for liquid lipsticks or liquid eyeliners, hundreds of products line the shelves—all with similar claims at similar price points. Because choosing a quality drugstore mascara that claims to be waterproof feels a lot like picking a needle out of a haystack, we tested 10 of the top-rated options to find the best of the best.

After extensive testing, we found Covergirl Lash Blast Volume (available at Amazon for $6.17) , a highly effective mascara that goes on smoothly, is the best. It doesn’t clump and separates lashes beautifully.

It’s worth noting that, during testing, we were largely satisfied with most of the top-rated drugstore mascaras and found the majority of the products yielded similarly impressive results, offering lash lengthening, curl, and extra volume, especially for their affordable price points.

These are the best drugstore mascaras we tested ranked, in order:

Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Maybelline Full ‘n Soft Thick and Healthy Double Extend Lash Extension Effect Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect Maybelline Great Lash L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Maybelline Volum’express: The Colossal L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Essence Lash Princess.
