YOU probably remember Wilko’s Essence Lash Princess Sculpted Volume mascara going viral earlier this year.
The £3.30 product was labelled « the best budget mascara ever » – and it’s pretty much been out of stock since.
- Essence Lash Princess Sculpted Volume mascara, £3.59 from Amazon – buy now
Now that Christmas party season has arrived, we imagine quite a few people are hoping to repurchase their favourite budget beauty buy.
So we did a quick search online – and found that it’s available on Amazon.
But unfortunately, you’ll have to splash out a little more than you would at Wilko.
While the mascara is being sold for £3.59, you’ll have to add on £3.99 for delivery.
Overall, this adds up to £7.58.
However, that’s still far cheaper than some high-end brands’ mascaras – and judging by customer reviews, it’s totally worth the splurge.
When the product first went viral in January, beauty bloggers and vloggers couldn’t stop singing its praises.
A Reddit post by EllieDaisyLouise – which included a stunning before and after shot – also generated a lot of hype.
She captioned the image: « Can’t believe this mascara was only £3.30!
« Sorry for the shocking picture quality but this is the Essence Lash Princess mascara and I HIGHLY recommend it. »
The photo generated more than 300 comments in a day, with the original poster admitting she’d only bought it because she’d seen other people recommending it.
To be honest, we might stock up on three.
In more beauty news, IT Cosmetics’ CC cream ‘camouflages skin imperfections’ including dark spots, pigmentation and rosacea – and the photos speak for themselves.
Poundland is selling Jo Malone candle dupes – but they’re £45 CHEAPER.
And L’Oreal’s £9 Infallible Pro Glow has been voted the best foundation by Reddit users, who say it ‘stays in place all day’.
