I think drugstore makeup has come a long, long way from the stuff I used in my early teens. And, personally, I see no reason to pay an exorbitant amount of money for something I'm going to pitch every six months... like mascara.
The holy grail of mascaras for me - Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume! ...and her ugly step-sister, Lash Blast Length. And my hands-down "natural" mascara is Maybelline Full 'N Soft.
L'Oreal, Prestige, and Revlon eyeliners.
