TikTok Mascaras Under $10 – TikTok Made Me Buy It Mascara Edition

We are talking viral TikTok mascaras – sharing what we found, what we love and the results because TikTok made me buy it! Since TikTok made me buy a lot of things, this is an on-going series featuring various TikTok Made Me Buy It Finds.

Since we are talking TikTok mascaras, I thought I’d throw in a little FYI.

I Am a Mom – I Am Not a Makeup Influencer

While today, yes I am sharing my favorite TikTok finds in regards to mascara, I am not here to show you how to do make-up. I am first and foremost a mom who blogs and shares funny memes. I am extremely busy and appreciates a good find when I find one.

That said, I have a love hate relationship with makeup. And to be completely honest, since not having to leave the house very often over the last 18 months (thanks pandemic) – my lack luster makeup routine has been nearly non-existent. Unfortunately (and fortunately) I live in the great state of Texas and well, apparently here the pandemic is over.

Life has returned to it’s busy all of a sudden. All 4 kids are back in school, and with that comes having to actually leave the house and see people. Talk about rude awakening for this introvert!

Anyways, here I am – I’m back well kind of. Not voluntarily but I did decide that while maybe I don’t have to put on a full face of makeup but I should at least put on something.

Yes TikTok Made Me Buy Mascara

My compromise with myself (does anyone else compromise with themselves?) – is eye makeup. I can put on mascara and eye-liner so that I don’t look too scary, though yes my skin is pretty pale but I only agreed to daily eye makeup.

My go to resource did not fail me and thats why we are doing a TikTok made me buy it mascara edition. When I needed to buy some new make-up, might as well turn to TikTok.

TikTok Mascaras Under $10

Here are 3 viral TikTok mascaras and I’ll share what I bought and what I felt worked best. Side note, while I don’t mind splurging now and then on makeup, these TikTok mascaras are all under $10! Here are the mascaras we are reviewing:

  • L’Oreal Lash Paradise
  • Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift
  • Essence Lash Princess

Waterproof Mascara Making Your Eye Lashes Fall Out?

Random, but something to note. We are talking TikTok mascaras that are waterproof and not waterproof. Previously, I would always choose a waterproof mascara as my eyes water often. I did find out this interesting fact about waterproof mascara.

Did you know waterproof mascara can make your eyelashes fall out? Yes! The wax and silicone used to create the waterproof mascara is also ingredients that your eyelashes just don’t like.

“The ingredients that are used to cause the formula to be waterproof can have the effect of drying out lashes, which can lead to them falling out,” Dr. Engelman tells SELF. Think of it like long-wear lipstick. Sure, it lasts forever, but it leaves lips feeling cracked and dehydrated. The same can be said for waterproof mascara.

Seeing that my eyelashes are personally sad pandas, I’ve decided to go the non-waterproof mascara route. And yes, I do realize I will look like a sad panda when I cry.

Loreal Lash Paradise Mascara Review

First up in our TikTok Mascaras round up we have the Loreal Lash Paradise mascara. I bought the Loreal Lash Paradise mascara with Amazon Prime with same day delivery. Sadly, I always have $35 I can spend on something me or these 4 kids need so didn’t have to pay the extra $2.99 for the rush delivery.

Under $9

Here is the downlow and full Loreal Lash Paradise mascara review. This particular TikTok mascara was under $9 and I needed a filler to have my Prime order delivered same day so this worked perfect.

If you are looking for full, lash lengthening mascara that won’t break the bank, here is your sign. Reading thru the reviews, I’m not the only one to go fan girl over this TikTok mascara.

Top Selling Mascara

This L’Oreal Paris make-up product is not new to market. It is said to sell 1 tube every 5 seconds. That’s just insane to think about, but can see why people think this is the best mascara. Especially with the affordable price tag, you can’t go wrong.

Eyelash Wand

The Loreal Lash mascara eyelash wand has actual bristles, not plastic spikes.

Full Coverage Mascara

If you are looking for full coverage with color, this is your new mascara. I purchased Blackest Black and have zero complaints. It definitely gives a solid black color to my pale eyelashes.

No Flaking or Clumping

A noticeable thing that I am loving about the Lash Paradise mascara is that there is no flaking or clumping.

Volume and Length

Did I mention how dainty my eyelashes are? They are pitiful. I am LONG overdue for another lash lift, but schedules and life just keeps getting in the way. I was impressed with the volume and length my lashes get with this mascara.

My daughter’s words “look at that lift” – so while I didn’t get a lash lift from the lash salon, apparently my lashes did get a lift with this mascara.

Diorshow vs Loreal Lash Paradise

In a previous life, when I had to go into an office everyday and put on a full face of make-up – I wore Dior Diorshow mascara. While yes, Diorshow mascara does amazing things to your eyelashes – it also can break your budget.

I can buy 3 tubes of the Loreal Lash mascara for what I paid for 1 tube of Dior Diorshow mascara. Yes, you can use a drugstore mascara and replace your pricey DiorShow and no one has to now (unless you tell them!)

How much is the Loreal Lash Paradise mascara?

Under $9 on Amazon – price may change slightly but you shouldn’t be paying more than $10 a mascara tube for this.

Did you use a eye lash curler or primer?

I didn’t use an eyelash curler or primer. While I didn’t use a primer I did see that Loreal has a L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara Primer. It too is under $9.

Does Lash Paradise clump?

Personally, my Loreal Lash Paradise mascara has not clumped. I did read a review of someone saying that her bottle had started clumping a few weeks after using. I have not seen wide spread chatter of a clumps being an issue.

It it waterproof?

The Loreal Lash mascara that I purchased was not waterproof. Check to see if there is a waterproof formula.

Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara Review

Next on our list of best TikTok mascaras under $10, we have Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara. This TikTok mascara was created to give you the look of an eyelash lift with mascara rather than a procedure.

I should state that another Maybelline mascara went TikTok viral but we aren’t talking about it – here is why.

Maybelline Sky High Mascara vs Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara

When you think of viral TikTok mascaras, chances are the Maybelline Sky High mascara which is wildly popular with the TikTok crowd came to mind. Here is what we didn’t like about the Maybelline Sky High mascara and why we think you will like the Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift mascara better.

The Maybelline Sky High mascara does give a great initial show but shortly after putting on the mascara – we noticed that the lash lift started to fall. Also, the clumping was real. I’m not a fan of eyelash clumps.

Overall Thoughts

If I hadn’t found the LO’Real Lash Paradise, I would be more hyped about Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift mascara. It’s a great, affordable mascara and can definitely see why this has landed on TikTok mascara videos.

But for me, it created too much of a clump look for my eyelashes. This didn’t happen every ime. If I was more dedicated to this particular product, I would try it with a primer. I’m not that committed so as you can see from my before and after – the eyelash look is clumpier than with the LO’Real mascara.

How much is Falsies Lash Lift?

The Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara runs under $10, depending on where you purchase. You can buy Falsies Lash Lift on Amazon or at most drug stores. Do know, I had to try 2 stores to find the ultra black mascara color that I wanted to buy.

What color Falsies Lash Lift is the blackest?

Does anyone else find the naming conventions that make-up brands use for their black color extremely confusing? No longer can you just buy black. There is ultra black, blackest black, very black and then brownish black. I get brownish black but the others, WHAT!

From what I can tell, the blackest black mascara is the darkest black of Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift. The reviews are saying that the formula also appears to be thicker, in addition to a darker black mascara color.

Essence Lash Princess Mascara Review

Last on our list of TikTok mascaras we have Essense Lash Princess Mascara. Before finding Lash Paradise mascara, I have used Essence Lash Princess for the last year.

Initially Essence Lash Princess mascara gained popularity with makeup influencers on Instagram and YouTube. As TikTok has exploded, many makeup influencers have shared about this TikTok mascara on that platform as well.

How much does Essence Lash Princess mascara cost?

The appeal is it’s a great mascara and it is CHEAP. How cheap? Typically you can find Essence Lash Princess mascara for under $5 on Amazon.

This popular mascara goes on easy, and provides a look that appears that you are wearing fake eyelashes. The mascara that I have used is the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect mascara.

Waterproof Lash Princess Mascara

Something to note, and I know everyone’s eyes and eyelash sensitivity vary – but my eyes did NOT like the waterproof Lash Princess mascara. I had purchased this the second time I had bought this product when I saw that it came in a waterproof version.

Unfortunately, my eyes became red and were itchy all day long. Again, that is just my personal experience with the waterproof Lash Princess mascara. Your experience might totally be different. I just know that some eyes and eyelashes are more sensitive than others.

TikTok Made Me Buy Mascara
