Pricey mascaras can range from $30 to $100. But Amazon's bestselling mascara may surprise you -- it's only $5 and it has a 4.4-star rating with over 320,000 reviews. $5 for mascara is pretty impressive, especially considering that price inflation is on the rise. Ready for the lashes of your dreams? Let me introduce you to Essence's famous Lash Princess mascara and show you what you've been missing.

Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect mascara, $5

$5 at Amazon

If you're looking for budget-friendly makeup options, this mascara is a great start. But just because you're getting a great price doesn't mean you're sacrificing quality. The conic brush design separates and lifts lashes to provide dramatic, curved lash results. You won't need falsies anymore, that's for sure. This cruelty-free mascara is also fragrance-free, vegan, oil-free, paraben-free and made without alcohol.

Still not sure about this long-lasting, non-clumping, non-flaking, volumizing and lengthening five-buck mascara? Don't just take my word for it. Hear it straight from one very satisfied customer.

"I have never in all my years had a mascara like this. I didn't think it would be any different from all the other mascaras that are used, but I must tell you this by far is the greatest mascara. It will look like you have the biggest brightest eyelashes. You will look like a movie star. Just perfect. Smudge-proof and so easy to remove. I am thrilled," said one reviewer.
