A tried-and-true beauty product is much like an old friend: reliable, comforting, and supportive. It gives you what you need, there are no surprises, and it saves you in a pinch. Always. Chances are you have a few of these products tucked away in your vanity. In the beauty world, a select few products have earned the coveted label of cult classic. With golden reputations and massive loyal followings to boot, these products are hero products if we ever saw 'em! We're taking a peek at these cult-classic beauty products to see the magic behind them! Last week we talked all things blush and this week we're taking a stroll down memory lane with our high-school go-to mascara! Did your fave product make the cut?

Product: Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara, $5.99 at drugstore.com

Why it's a classic: With one tube sold every 1.7 seconds, there's no denying this mascara has earned its title of the best-selling mascara in the US. This tried-and-true formula delivers thick color and coverage to lashes without clumping and smearing. Plus that iconic green and pink packaging looks just as sweet in our beauty bag now as it did when we were 13!

Why we love it: We've tried a lot of mascara in our day, but we always know we can count on Great Lash to live up to its name and deliver great lashes. There's nothing fancy or over-the-top about this mascara: the wand is simple and the formula classic. No clumps or spider-y lashes here. Just a touch of color on your lashes! As if that wasn't enough, a few swipes will give you a natural fluttery finish, while several layers will give you a dramatic look reminiscent of Friday nights spent at the movie theater. (We're suckers for nostalgia, OK?) Plus, with a price tag under $10, what's not to like about this drugstore find?
