Where to Buy Cheap Mascara

Makeup Can Be Expensive

Are you looking for cheap mascara? I've been guilty of spending $22 on one tube of mascara before, and I'd hate to see that happen to anybody else.

If you love expensive makeup, but hate how empty your bank account is after a shopping spree at Sephora (which I have to admit will always be one of my favorite stores anyway), keep reading. I'll give you tips on where to buy cheap mascara online, as well as a few stores that offer good deals on mascara.

Amazon is one of the best places to buy cheap mascara; I've seen stuff on there for as little as a penny.  Amazon carries drugstore brands like Cover Girl and Loreal, as well as department store brands such as Estee Lauder, Clinique, and Urban Decay.

If you qualify for free shipping, then you can't beat the prices at Amazon.


Target is my favorite store ever. You won't find Dior or Clinique here, but you'll find cheap mascara from Maybelline, Cover Girl, and Loreal.

Target accepts coupons, so check your favorite women's magazines for mascara coupons. I see them in Cosmo a lot.  You'll also occasionally find coupons attached directly to the mascara you want to buy.  Keep an eye out.


You can find everything you need (and a lot of things you don't need) on Ebay, including cheap mascara. Ebay is also a great place to find discontinued cosmetics. I used to buy StreetWear by Revlon, as well as an eyeshadow by Cover Girl, after the stores stopped selling it.

Dollar Stores

If you have any of those stores where everything is a dollar in your area, check out the makeup aisle. You'll find tons of cheap mascara from popular drugstore brands, including hard to find colors.

Sometimes the cosmetics at dollar stores are dried up and expired, so be careful.


Ulta is a lot like Sephora, only cheaper.

Even on days when the prices aren't that great, you'll usually find coupons offered online or in the ads offered at the entrance.
