FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: 5 Awesome Student Budget- Friendly Waterproof Mascaras For Summer

Howdy, TBJ fans? :D I hope Friday has been treating you well. I know this isn't the best time to write about anything related to school, especially for my student readers, because what the heck, it's summer vacation already. Well, mascara is an essential makeup product anyway so I'm sure most of you will still find this post handy! :) Thanks, Chastity for sending this question.

Hi Martha, 
What student-friendly priced mascara would you recommend to me for this coming summer season?

10 Lovely Thoughts

  1. im no longer a student but this is still applicable to me who is Mom-on-budget (oops Mascara#1 and #4 dont have price on it ms m)

    i would go for the maybelline because i know it was below 400php (if you're really on tight budget i think EB and HBC mascaras were pretty fine also)

    but if i have budget for beautifying my lashes i will go for extensions (have you tried it ms m?)

  2. I've been looking for this kind, thanks for sharing.

  3. I've been meaning to try Maybelline Cat Eye since last year, especially during the big year-ender sale. Too bad it was out-of-stock wherever I looked! I ended up with Volum Express Rocket instead of my usual Falsies (para maiba naman).

  4. I'm a maybelline mascara lover because they are affordable and does the job of lengthening and volumizing the eyelashes

  5. Noooooo, I still have classes! We still have two months of school left. Anyway, haha, I am currently obsessed with mascaras even if they are such a pain in the butt to remove. XD I currently love the pink Heroine Make one :D I have a friend who is obsessing about the L'Oreal Miss Manga mascara.

  6. Essence mascaras seem good! I've tried two so far and I love both of them. Nothing over 400 pesos, as far as I can ascertain.

  7. Very timely post! I agree about the list. Maybelline mascaras are effective on making my lashes longer and fuller. I also like Avon mascaras, as well as heroine make and l'oreal. Sana talaga magkaron na ng tupperware dealer malapit samin para matry ko na yung colour collection cosmetics dahil sa good reviews!
    i hope I'm still in school para makapagpahinga ng mahaba. haha. #workproblems

  8. I'm no longer a student but I think this mascara trends will fit to anyone who opt to give emphasis to their eyes. This will give the eyes a fabulous look.

  9. A helpful blog especially to us who want to be beautiful yet don't want to spend a fortune.

  10. Beth: You're welcome and thank you for dropping by. :)

    Monique: Hello and welcome to my blog. Right on! :)

    Abegaill: Oh, I know what you mean. I now realized, I should have appreciated my student days more because now that I'm working and supporting myself somehow, I always have to be on my feet and I can't simply have a lazy day. :p

    Stacie: Miss Manga mascara? Now that's new. I have L'Oreal Butterfly Wings False Lashes which is like a counterpart of Papillon Mascara. I'll review it soon. :)

    Aviva: Glad to know that! I had a couple before, but they did not work on me. :(

    Matromao: Wow, didn't know that Cat Eyes is still popular after all these years. It's good kasi! Try Hypercurl-it's one of my fave Maybelline mascaras. :)

    Hazel: Ditto! :)

    Trexie: You're welcome! :)

    Rhain: Nope, haven't tried extensions and not planning to. I have the tendency to rub my eyes often so nope, that won't work for me. :) Thanks for pointing out the mistakes. I edited them now. :)
