If you thought Beyoncé only allowed luxury beauty products with triple digit price tags near her skin, you might want to sit down for this. Beyoncé’s makeup artist, Sir John, revealed to Refinery29 in a 2019 interview that he actually used a drugstore mascara on Queen Bey for her legendary two-hour Coachella performance in 2018.

The mascara in question is the L’Oreal Paris Lash Paradise Mascara ($13 for 2, was $20; amazon.com), which is also a favorite of Blake Lively, who reportedly wore it to the 2018 Met Gala. Currently on major sale as part of Amazon Prime Day, this popular formula is made to be long-lasting, smudge-proof, and flake-free; there’s a reason it's lasted through iconic performances and red carpet events alike.

To buy: L’Oreal Paris Lash Paradise Mascara 2-Pack, $13 at checkout (was $20); amazon.com

Despite competing against a collection of stellar mascaras in Amazon’s crowded marketplace, L’Oreal’s Lash Paradise mascara continues to be a standout among shoppers who were in need of a waterproof formula that gives every lash serious length and volume. An Amazon’s choice product for a waterproof lengthening mascara, this budget-friendly find combines a silky smooth formula that instantly volumizes lashes with a fluffy application wand (that has over 200 bristles) to coat every last lash. You’ll see noticeably bigger lashes with just one coat, though the most voluminous lashes will come from multiple coats thanks to the buildable formula.

Alongside the photographic evidence of Beyoncé’s flawless makeup at Coachella and Lively's swoon-worthy look at the Met Gala, this mascara also has more than 17,000 5-star ratings from users who call it “the world’s best mascara.” Other standout praises included “magic in a tube,” “absolutely incredible,” and “the best mascara.”

One shopper summed up their experience with this review: “I've tried just about all drug store brand and style mascaras. I've even tried a few expensive ones from Dept stores. This L'Oréal mascara is hands down the best one I've EVER owned and I will never try another so long as they keep making this one! No clumps, makes them full with one application, and doesn't flake even in the 90 degree heat today after I sweated my butt off running around after my niece and nephew. Don't waste your money on expensive mascara when this one right here will do all that and more for a fraction of the price!”

While you can score one tube of this already affordable mascara for $8, we recommend saving even more this Prime Day with the discounted two-pack for $13 (the extra discount is applied at checkout), bringing the price of each tube down to just above $6. The only catch? The deal is exclusively for Amazon Prime members, but if you don't have an account yet, don't fret: You can sign up for a free, 30-day trial to take advantage of this markdown (plus so many more).

If you want to channel your inner A-list celeb and try the mascara Blake Lively and Beyoncé use for long, feathery lashes, we don't recommend waiting to shop this deal—there's no telling how long the mascara will stay in stock.
