Best Drugstore Mascaras Under $20

Friends, I love me some mascara.  What I don’t love is the guessing game.  I’ve tried some mascaras that are ah-mazing and some that might as well be water.  I also have different mascara needs for different days.  When I’m going to church or going to the grocery store, I want a simple mascara that defines my lashes.  When I go out, I want a whole lot of definition, longer lashes, and thicker lashes.  I don’t wear mascara every day, so a tube will last me until it’s time to toss it in 2-3 months or when it starts to get clumpy.  That’s all the more reason to make sure that I pick the best drugstore mascara for my needs so I’m not stuck with something inferior.  Here are my picks for the best drugstore mascaras under $20.
