This $5 Drugstore Mascara Will Replace All Your Expensive Ones

by Stephanie Montes

We love the occasional beauty splurge, but when it comes to the products we use every day, we could stand to save a buck or two. Luckily, the latest buzzy mascara, Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara, is not only unbelievably good to your lashes, it's pretty nice to your wallet—ringing in at just $5.

Over on Reddit, one beauty junkie took to the Makeup Addiction thread to share her first go at the drugstore product. Looking more like a set of falsies than a few swipes of mascara, the after shot is unbelievable. Not only did the mascara lengthen and add tons of volume, it also held her lashes' curl. And just like that, we're clearing out our stash for this affordable option.
