For most of us mascara is the basis of our makeup bag. It’s a quick and easy way to take us from half asleep to ready for the day – and it’s a shortcut to avoiding those “are you feeling okay” comments from those co-workers who have never seen us bare-faced.
But finding the best mascara that hits all the bases can sometimes feel near impossible.
Finding a formula that contains the holy trinity powers of lengthening, defining and volumising can be surprisingly difficult.
And when you add in curling power, likeliness of flaking and ease of removability – there’s a lot of aspects to consider. Not to mention price point too.
So we couldn’t contain our excitement when we came across a bargain drugstore mascara that is said to emulate the results of one of the best in the biz – Benefit’s iconic They’re Real.
Primark’s PS Wonder Lash mascara claims to gives customers ‘longer looking & defined lashes without clumping’, with 91 per cent of users agreeing that its formula gives ‘dramatic length & volume’.
Its slim and flexible rubber brush also lifts each lash and ensures that they are all properly coated with the cruelty-free formula.
And the best part? This lengthening mascara comes in at only £3, compared to Benefit’s cult favourite that will set you back £22.
One fan took to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, which has more than a million members, to express her amazement at the steal’s results.
‘£3 in primark!’ wrote the happy customer. ‘Absolutely amazing just like the Benefit mascara if not better 😊👌🏻’.
The post quickly raked up more than a thousand likes and hundreds of comments from other users who agreed.
‘Brought this last week it’s amazing,’ wrote one user, while another wrote, ‘I used it today and seems pretty good 😊’.
‘I’ve got it to it’s brilliant best one I’ve used so far x,’ agreed another, with someone else commenting, ‘I love this, no more expensive mascaras for me 👍’.
Others wrote, ‘Brilliant stuff’, ‘I LOVE this mascara!’, ‘It’s amazing ❤’ and ‘I love this mascara! Wont use anything else’.
