Celebrities have access to all of the makeup and skincare products under the sun. And, they have beauty experts give them recommendations on what’s the best to use to help them stay in the loop and looking gorgeous on every red carpet. But despite all that, most celebs still rely on the products in the drugstore aisles for all their cosmetic needs–including this $8 product that A-listers like Hilary Duff, Julianne Hough, and more swear by.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Waterproof Mascara ($7.99) 

Can’t figure it out? It’s L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Waterproof Mascara! This drugstore mascara favorite is uniquely formulated to resist clumping, keep lashes soft, and build lashes up to 4x their natural thickness. Its intense black pigments and special Volume Maximizing Brushcreate a more dramatic, thickening effect that lasts all day.

“I do love myself a L’Oréal Voluminous mascara,” Duff recently told Byrdie.
