Guiltless Gastos: Which Mascara Is The Most Sulit?

We did the math!

Being Asian, most of us were born with stubborn, stick-straight lashes that can't hold a curl. This is why we turn to a good mascara to help us because a few coats of it can *immediately* transform our entire look—our eyes appear bigger and we look more awake!

The price of mascaras, however, range from P350 to almost P2,000, which can be pretty steep for just a little tube. That said, we decided to investigate to see if you're really getting your money's worth. We based it on each product's price, weight, and if it can hold a curl. Keep scrolling to see the results:

Careline Go Long! Mascara

It may be the most inexpensive option in this list, but don't let its affordable price point fool you—it can rival high-end ones in terms of lengthening and volumizing!
