Best $2.00 Mascara EVER – Wet N’ Wild Mega Volume Mascara

OK Makeup Geeks, I have a great new, inexpensive find for you guys. We all love finding things that work well and don’t break the bank and this is most definitely one of those finds. Thanks to Nicola who actually clued me in on this wonderful discovery. Mascara is one of those things we just can’t seem to live without, regardless of whether you are wearing a full face of makeup or not, adding mascara to your lashes automatically makes them look larger and more open.

Wet N’ Wild Mega Volume Mascara

This is a standard mascara wand, it’s not super big, but it’s not to small either. It really is the perfect size. This is actually my favorite type of wand as it is able to really get into the lashes and provides length and volume. This really thickens the lashes without clumping and is very pigmented and dark which is what you want from a mascara. This is very reminiscent of the L’Oreal Voluminous mascara without the clumps or having to scrape off a lot of the excess product from the wand. This adds so much volume and length to my lashes its crazy!


  • Provides length and volume
  • Doesn’t clump
  • Highly pigmented
  • Great wand
  • Price, at $2.99 this is as good as it gets


  • None

I love this mascara and highly recommend it. For what you get and the price it really is worth it. Being able to pick this up at your local drugstore, Target or Wal-Mart makes the convenience of finding this even better. I hope you enjoyed this review and as always, stay happy and healthy!

Retails for $2.00 – Target, Local Drugstore

How fabulous, thanks Marlena! I have been hoping for a review like this as I have been buying High end mascaras and wanted to have at least a couple of cheaper options. Thank you, this is really useful!

I actually just did a blog post on this mascara! It’s really nice but it flakes and gives me a little bit of raccoon eyes

Thanks for the tip, Marlena! $2.00 for a mascara that adds impressive amounts of volume AND length is awesome. Your pictures really speak for themselves–you already have fabulous lashes, but I’m so impressed by how the Wet n Wild mascara makes them look. I’m a big fan of L’Oreal Voluminous, and am excited that this mascara is comparable.

My HG mascara is also a drugstore cheapie–Essence Make it BIG! mascara. That stuff makes my lashes look FAKE they look so long and lush. :) And it’s about three bucks.

Good find! I will be trying this one out for sure! I’ve been using Maybelline volume mascaras for about a year now. They’re ok but much more affordable than the high end volume mascaras. Thanks for putting awesome pictures up! So easy to see that there is zero clumping…big bonus!!!


I certainly appreciate your finds and your reviews! I would love to see you expand your reviews on Avon and Mary Kay products. I know there are so many products out there and so little time, but I would definitely appreciate the opportunity to hear it from a professional’s prospective! Thanks!


I would be interested to see that too. I know the pixiwoo sisters like their Avon. I got the Avon supershock gel liner and its so black but wow, it smudge everywhere! I would love Marlena’s point of view on these products also.

I love this mascara as soon as i watch this video I went and brought it great product. and thanks for all the makeup tips you give. You are the one who taught me my makeup skills and everyday i log on to see what great tips you have. thanks a mill marlena and

I will definitely be trying this. Another great cheap mascara is Jordana FabuLash . I think it’s about $2.99 and it really does work great.

I always believe in you Marlena when you say a product is good. Went out a few days ago to pick this up and it works pretty well. I love how it makes my lashes very thick, instant volume. It’s way better than the maybelline colossal cat eyes :) thanx marlena xoxo
