Beauty fans are going wild for a £4 mascara that they ‘swear by’ - and it’s one that also has a HUGE Tyla seal of approval.

While many of us are more than happy to splash our well-earned cash on pricey beauty products, it’s fair to say that we’d rather save the pennies where possible.

I spent years splurging on Dior’s Iconic mascara after my Maybelline old faithful was discontinued, and while I will always be impressed by the surprising volume you get from such a light-feeling product, I couldn’t help but baulk at the price as it crept up to around £35 a pop.

Figuring – and hoping – there must be an alternative out there, I tried out a number of other mascaras, only to find they felt as cheap as they were.

That is until I stumbled upon one by Rimmel, which cost me about a fiver when I picked it up and it is nothing short of brilliant.

Better news still, it turns out you can get it even cheaper if you shop around.

It turns out I’m not alone in my love for Rimmel’s Extra 3D Lash Volumising, Defining and Lengthening Mascara, which has a 3D rubber brush which promises to ‘capture, coat and lift every lash’, as it’s also become the talk of the town over on the Family Lowdown Tips and Ideas Facebook page.

One user posted a photo of the mascara, asking others for their ‘best budget beauty products'.

“I have tried £30 mascaras but this is THE BEST at around £6,” they wrote.

“Nothing beats it for long lashes that don’t smudge!”

Many others felt the same, with one commenting underneath: “I swear by this one also.”

Another said: “I have this one. It’s the BEST mascara I have ever used. No smudge or ‘spider legs’ no clumps. LOVE IT.”

A third agreed: “I recently bought this after years of spending stupid amounts on mascara and it literally the best.”

Someone else added: “I always use this to definitely the best I've ever used.”

Others even shared a tip-off that you could find it even cheaper online.

While it’s currently selling at Boots for £4.99, one pointed out: “Even cheaper on Amazon!”

Indeed, the item is on offer on the site at the moment for just £3.69, down 26 percent from its £4.99 RRP - which is frankly a total steal.

And it really does rival more expensive products on the market, as it lengthens lashes within just a few strokes, without feeling heavy on your eyelid or clumping.

It says it's suitable for sensitive eyes, too, so it's a win-win.
