In our minds, you don't always have to spend a lot of money to find one of the best mascaras – some of our favourites mascaras are less than £10. Here's one that not only gets our seal of approval but the celebs' too – and it's currently reduced as part of an epic beauty sale.

In a blog post on Holly Willoughby's lifestyle brand Wylde Moon's website, the star's make-up artist Patsy O'Neill lists L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Mascara as one of her favourites, and so we assume that this high street product was used on some of Holly's stunning make-up looks on her appearances on Dancing On Ice, This Morning and various red carpet events over the years.

You can make a massive saving on the L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Mascara

This L'Oréal mascara usually costs £11.99, but it's currently slashed down to £7.97 on Amazon as part of the website's big premium beauty sale – that's a saving of more than a third.

Designed to give a lengthening effect, it combines a long, flexible silicone brush with a flexible formula that coats every lash from root to tip resulting in, L'Oréal claims, up to 60% longer looking eyelashes.

Writing on the Wylde Moon website as part of a post about the best eyelash products, Patsy writes: "Another classic mascara that most people love is the L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Mascara, £11.99. It has a high-precision, flexible, multi comb that’s made of supple bristles, which really helps elongate the lashes up and out. I have to say, loads of my friends rave about this mascara – especially the price!"

At currently under £8, it's clearly a hit with shoppers too, judging by the 5,000-plus five-star reviews on the Amazon website.

"Doesn’t go clumpy even after a few layers, it stays on all day and doesn’t budge. Makes my lashes look so much longer. One of my favourites," wrote one happy customer.

Another wrote, "Best mascara I've used, makes your lashes long and no clumping."

A third review titled 'I don't normally leave reviews…' continues with: "…but this mascara is the best I have ever had. It’s sublime and I love the small brush. 11/10."

The £4 saving on this L'Oréal Telescopic Mascara comes as Amazon slashes its prices on dozens of top beauty products as part of its Premium Beauty Week, with big savings on some of our favourite brands. You've only got until 22 April to shop these though, so don't hang about!

Another mascara that's worth checking out – and is currently going viral – is REFY's unusual Lash Sculpt, £22. You can read more about it – and watch us try it out – here.

Another high street mascara favourite – and OK! beauty editor Laura Mulley's top pick – is Maybelline Sky High Cosmic Black Mascara, also currently reduced on Amazon, down to £8.68.
