Amazon reviewers seriously rate this budget French mascara

“Better than luxury brands” is the general consensus

BeautyCrew Beauty Editor / August 20 2019

Any beauty lover will be able to tell you, when it comes to cult-favourite products, the French really know what they’re doing. From Bioderma’s micellar water to Klorane Dry Shampoo and Caudalie Beauty Elixir, they know how to deliver quality formulas at budget prices.

The latest French beauty buy that’s getting a lot of hype is Vivienne Sabo Cabaret Premiere French Mascara.

The mascara features a lightweight, smudge-proof formula that defines and volumises the appearance of lashes with one coat, and also promises to never clump, flake or transfer.

The mascara boasts well over 1000 five-star reviews and at USD$12 (approximately AUD$18), it’s no wonder people are flocking to Amazon to get their hands on it.

Judging by the photos Amazon customers have uploaded on the product’s page, this mascara is the real deal, and perhaps, it may even be good enough to take the place of high-end and other cult mascaras in your beauty routine:

“This mascara isn't clumpy at all and makes your lashes super long and defined without sticking them together. I've never had any problems with flaking, and although it isn't waterproof, I've definitely used eyedrops, shed a tear, and gotten stuck in rain without them smudging or running down my face. All in all, this is my new holy grail mascara.”

“This mascara does such a great job of separating and lengthening my lashes. I think this is the best they’ve ever looked - better than when I’ve had expensive mascaras. Will buy again for sure!”

“With one coat my lashes look very long, thick and dark. Pretty comparable to L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara, but I think this stuff makes your lashes look even thicker. Ps, if you coat both sides of your lashes, they’ll appear even longer.”

Amazon really delivers on quality budget beauty buys: Check out their best-selling eyebrow product that can last up to three days.
