Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has blessed us with her beauty tips on multiple occasions. Throughout her tenure in office, she’s let us in on her go-to products, from the affordable makeup sponge she uses to apply foundation to the exact shade of longwear lipstick that’s since become her signature. Today, another AOC fave is on sale as part of Amazon Prime Day 2020: You can shop Maybelline’s The Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara for just $4 right now.

You’ve likely seen the mascara’s purple bottle at your local drugstore, but you might not be aware that it features a fiber-infused thickening formula that rivals its high-end competitors. The jet-black mascara glides onto lashes smoothly and evenly, creating corner-to-corner volume in just one swipe. Its signature curved spoon bristle brush ensures a clump-free application every single time. If it’s good enough for AOC, who is seen using it in a Vogue Beauty Secrets video, it’s good enough for you and me.

As if the congresswoman’s endorsement wasn’t enough, the Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara also boasts thousands of five-star ratings from satisfied customers, who say it really does mimic the look of a voluminous pair of false lashes. One Amazon shopper wrote that the mascara transforms her naturally short, wispy lashes into the long, luscious set of her dreams.

“I have been using this same mascara for literally a decade now. It’s so easy to apply and then build as I decide I want a more natural look vs. more drama,” wrote one reviewer. “It’s lightweight, doesn’t irritate my eyes, doesn’t dry out or damage my lashes, and lasts extremely well. Love this stuff!”

“This by far the best mascara out there! I have to wear waterproof, otherwise curling my eyelashes does me no good, they’ll just drop down. Better than any mascara, yes, even the $50 fancy brand name ones,” said another customer.
