Unapologetic beauty lovers pine after a good lash. From eyelash extensions to strip falsies, makeup fans go to great lengths for, well, lengthy lashes. But a simple hack to get big, bold eyelashes has apparently been hiding in the drugstore all along. And it’s under $10. 

TikTok user @rachrypma recently posted a video singing the praises of L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara, claiming the product results in “big, bombshell eyelashes.” And she’s got the receipts to prove it.

The video of @rachrypma using the product is truly on another level. After a few seconds of coating on the formula with skillful wiggles, this woman’s lashes are plain huge.

“This sh*t is bomb. I am not kidding,” she says in the video. “My eyes are tiny, but they look huge now that I have this mascara.”

The TikTok in question gathered more than 775,000 likes and over 5.2 million views in just a week. As expected, everyone has eyelash envy.

“This stuff is better than any high-end mascara I have bought,” @rachrypma promises. 

But application is also the key to success here. The TikTok creator advises going over your lashes several times using a wiggling motion to coat the lashes, then dipping into the tube again to pick up more product for a second application. While you may think this liberal technique would lead to clumping, the wand shape and comb-like bristles help ensure your lashes stay separated and lifted.

Shop: L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara, $8.44 (Orig. $9.24)

Available at Ulta for $10.99 and Target for $12.99.

This TikTok creator isn’t the only one to swear by the drugstore mascara. The product has 4.4 stars out of 5 on Amazon, with more than 8,200 ratings. It also has over 4 stars on both Target and Ulta. 

In fact, many commenters on the original TikTok video say L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara has been their secret-only grail for years.

One TikTok user commented on the video, “If you make my favorite mascara sold out the next time I need some, so help me god.” 

Yes, it’s apparently that good.
