Salons and beauty services being closed most of 2020 and beyond caused many of us to learn to do our treatments at home. Maybe you ordered a gel nail kit or started dyeing your roots. Chances are, lashes took a backseat. If you can’t get a lash lift or your usual extensions, the best drugstore mascara of 2021 will allow you to fake it with just a few swipes at home. Of course, if you’re looking for a slightly more natural look, there are clean formulas that seriously deliver.

You don’t have to spend a big chunk of your paycheck on a new mascara. These are all priced at less than $11 so you can pick up a few for different occasions. Grab L’Oreal Paris’ new violet mascara to brighten the whites of your eyes, or go for a waterproof mascara formula from No.7 that won’t even smear in the rain. Looking for the latest TikTok beauty trend? Well, Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara is a current favorite for all ages.

Check out these and even more drugstore launches for 2021, below.
