The $5 Mascara People Are Obsessed With

Mascara is one of those makeup products that is simple yet valuable to wear every day. Just a few swipes and your eyes instantly appear bigger and brighter.

We have good news, that search might be over for the best mascara that doesn’t break the wallet.

Reddit user EllieDaisyLouise shared a photo of what looked like a before and after image of false lash application in the thread MakeupAddiction. She revealed this dramatic difference wasn’t thanks to falsies, but was the result of affordable drugstore mascara Essence Lash Princess False Lash Mascara ($5).

Her right eye is seen bare without anything on the shorter lashes. Then there’s her left eye, which has lashes miles long. Okay maybe not miles but they are shockingly lengthier, not to mention voluptuous.

When one commenter asked how she achieved this, EllieDaisyLouise explained that she applied two coats and used a eyelash curler in between. “I always make sure my lashes are COMPLETELY dry and I curl very slowly and carefully and release very slowly and carefully,” she wrote.


So there you have it, you don’t need falsies for a falsie lash effect.
