Shopping for mascara is overwhelming to say the least. There are hundreds of brands, formulas, brush sizes and shapes, price ranges, and vendors to consider. Even against luxury price tags, drugstore go-to Maybelline is the Number 1 selling mascara brand in the U.S. Here's why.

First of all, Maybelline has dozens of mascara formulas for every last need your lashes could have. Who hasn't owned several iconic pink and green tubes of Maybelline Great Lash? Other launches like Lash Sensational and The Falsies, which just won a 2019 Allure Best of Beauty Award for its waterproof formula, have become household essentials in the mascara realm. And those are just a few of the 88 unique formulas the brand offers internationally.

If 88 formulas sounds intimidating, Maybelline recently added a Mascara Quiz to their website so you can find your perfect match according to your lash needs. Take the quiz here.
