Don’t worry – we know what you’re thinking. Wilko may be a great place to pick up beauty bits and bobs, but it’s not the first destination that springs to mind when it comes to cutting-edge beauty products.

But trust us – that’s all about to change!

The search for the perfect mascara is a long and arduous one. Often, you’re hard pressed to find one that doesn’t clump, isn’t sticky, and doesn’t make your lashes look like creepy spiders legs.

So ditch your expensive brands, because Wilko is about to solve all your long-lash problems. One of their beauty products, the Essence Falsa Lash Effect Mascara, is driving fans on the internet crazy.

The mascara first came to the attention of the beauty world when a woman on Reddit posted a picture of her wearing it.

And the best part? It’s on sale for just £3.30!

EllieDaisyLouise showed off her long lashes, and wrote: ‘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.’

Fellow Reddit users then flocked to the post to sing their praises of the Wilko mascara too. One wrote: ‘I bought the same one yesterday! The cashier said she had heard great things about it. Just put it on and it’s fantastic!’. Another said: ‘I got a tube and I love it.’

While a third fan agreed: ‘This is my favourite mascara ever and I’m not even going to bother trying anything else. Holds the curl ALL DAY and never flakes. Just beautiful.’
