If you're on a really tight beauty budget (or just don't like investing too much money into a mascara), Wet n Wild Mega Volume Mascara is a great choice.
I recently discovered this little drugstore gem and was actually very impressed with the formula and brush (especially given the $2 price tag!).
Mega Volume did a very nice job thickening my med/fine lashes with just about 2 coats, while providing some additional length as well. It's a moist, medium-weight formula that dried fairly quickly, and didn't clump or smudge all day. I loved that the brush allowed me to get a precise application in the inner and outer corners of my lashes, as the brush is narrow. I didn't experience any flaking or eye irritation.
I used this in the black shade, and the finish is what I would call a "enhanced natural" lash effect. This is perfect for day time, the office or just running around on the weekends when you want your lashes kicked up a notch, but not with overly dramatic fullness/length.
This is also great to purchase for a "spare" mascara for the office or a travel bag because of the wallet-friendly price tag. - RLB
