I think the Maybelline Great Lash Blackest Black Mascara is a great mascara for a day time look: it has a lovely black colour which stays, a good applicator brush, it doesn’t smudge easily, and it doesn’t clump together. Personally, I use this during the day for a highlighted natural look and also on my bottom lashes for a nighttime look.
Retail price: £5.99 from Superdrug.

Mascara tubes are supposed to be recyclable (I think), but I can never manage to clean them.
One way I reuse them though is to use the brush part as a bathroom drain cleaner as it catches hair really well!
I think this is a really effective mascara for the price, but Maybelline are not cruelty free, so I won’t be buying this again.
