Growing up, I exclusively used drugstore mascara. It always got the job done, and looking back, it's the only thing about my late middle school/early high school makeup routine that I don't intensely regret (blue eyeshadow with bright pink lip gloss anyone?). But as I've gotten older and tried out more beauty products for my job, I've dabbled with luxury mascaras. Recently, after running out, I've decided to revert back to my childhood ways and buy a drugstore mascara I couldn't stop seeing on TikTok, as one does.
A couple months ago, Maybelline's Sky High mascara went viral on the app, and everyone was testing it out. Shortly after, people started comparing it to Maybelline's other famous best-selling mascara, the Lash Sensational, which I have been using for years. After seeing a TikTok featuring it, I decided to buy myself another tube, and the timing couldn't be more perfect because it's on sale early for Amazon Prime Day. It's now just $5 (!!!)

This mascara isn't just popular amongst Gen Z but is known for being Meghan Markle's go-to. Back in 2018, Markle's makeup artist Lydia Sellers told Hello magazine that Markle introduced her to the mascara. It was so good that it became a staple in Sellers' own makeup kit. Unlike most other mascaras that are known for either length or volume, Maybelline's Lash Sensational is beloved for doing both at once. Not to mention the formula is extremely hydrating and builds easily. Whenever I use it, I apply a couple of coats and instantly look like I have lash extensions.
The mascara is also already affordable, which is why this early Prime Day deal of just $5 is major. You can now essentially buy two tubes for the price of one. There is truly no better time to stock up, especially since Maybelline mascaras are prone to selling out thanks to their TikTok virality. Not to mention, Prime Day starts tomorrow, and there's no way eager shoppers won't throw this mascara in their carts while it's just $5. So it's better to shop now to avoid the rush. After all, the mascara is already a Meghan Markle and Gen Z-approved purchase. You have nothing to lose.
