"You can't beat it": The budget mascara being sold every 2.5 seconds
A $12.95 mascara is selling out in mere seconds as women take to social media to praise the budget-friendly beauty product.
Available at any Australian supermarket store or your local pharmacy, the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara has earned rave reviews from women who claim it works better than high-end products.
Beauty blogger Caitlyn Ann, from Michigan, shared her glowing review on YouTube, along with a before and after shot of her eyelashes after using the product.
“I very impressed with this mascara. I didn't think I was going to like it but it gives your eyes a very natural look... It does a nice job,” she said.
“Look how beautiful that is. I'm obsessed with this product, I should have tried it a long time ago,” she said.
Other women agreed, with many branding it the “best mascara ever”.
“The best mascara I've ever found! It's enough to keep my eyelashes longer and volumnised and its very light so my eyelashes stay up and curled throughout the day,” one woman raved.
Another said: “I've tried so many high end brands of mascara and came back to this one. It does just as good of a job if not better.”
“This is the best mascara out there, period. I have tried many different brands, including prestige and this is hands down the best one! And for the price, you really can't beat it! I highly recommend it,” one poster wrote.
One said: 'It's a no fuss mascara and perfect for giving your lashes a naturally defined look. It spreads on thinly and does not leave clumps in your lashes, giving them a natural look without looking fake.”
And another said: “This is a cult classic mascara that has been around ever since I can remember. I remember my mum using this when I was younger, and I'm pretty sure it was the first mascara I ever purchased.
“I still use it to this day, it's great quality for a great price. It does a good job at coating and separating lashes. It isn't the best mascara for volume or thickness, it's more suited to an everyday natural look.”
The “all day wear” mascara, which hit shelves 47 years ago, promises a “full lash look without clumps or globs” and “dries within seconds”.
