Australian comedian Celeste Barber has sent makeup lovers racing to buy a $12 beauty tool she insists is the best she’s ever tried – and you can get it in Woolworths.
The ultra-relatable funny woman, who was recently announced as the new face of vegan, cruelty-free beauty brand MCoBeauty, took to Instagram stories to plug her favourite products – including a mascara she claims is her favourite of all time.
‘Honestly, I’m the last person who should be giving beauty advice, so I won’t,’ the 38-year-old said in a video uploaded on February 1.
‘All I’ll say is I’m absolutely obsessed with the products. The XtendLash tubular mascara is the best I’ve ever tried.’

The $12 mascara, which promises to maximise length, curl and volume without flaking or smudging, is a budget-friendly imitation of Kevyn Aucoin’s ‘The Volume Mascara’, a cult favourite that costs $45 at cosmetics stores like Sephora.
Celeste, hydraclubbioknikokex7njhwuahc2l67lfiz7z36md2jvopda7nchid.onion who famously raised over $50million for in 2020, also heaped praise on MCoBeauty’s $28 Miracle Hydra Glow Oil-Free Foundation and its $22 Instant Camouflage and Contour Concealer.
She described the combination of the two as ‘the absolute t***s’.
Celeste said she loves the foundation because of the natural coverage it gives skin, adding: ‘It comes with a little primer and it doesn’t look like you’ve got makeup on!’

She went on to rave about the $18 Brow Fill and Set pencil and gel, which she uses to shade her eyebrows that ‘fell victim’ to the over-plucking trend of the 1990s.
MCoBeauty products have been flying off shelves since the endorsement, which would have reached many of the comedian’s 7.6million Instagram followers.
The brand is known for its range of affordably priced dupes of high-end products including the $45 Kevyn Aucoin mascara and Tarte Cosmetics’ $42 Shape Tape Concealer.
Founder Shelley Sullivan said shoppers are ‘going crazy’ over the new collection.
