Actress Busy Philipps landed the January digital cover of NewBeauty magazine, and in an accompanying feature story, the mom of two opened up about everything from her role in Mean Girls to the upcoming projects she’s excited about in 2024. 

Philipps also offered up a few of her beauty essentials, including her go-to lip balm, shampoo and her must-have tool (an eyelash curler). One such item always in the 44-year-old Girls5eva star’s makeup bag is a popular brand of tubing mascara. 

“I’m obsessed with Thrive Cosmetics Liquid Lash Extension Mascara,” Philipps noted. “It’s a tubing mascara, which I have never been a fan of, but this one is literally the greatest tubing mascara of all time. I’m obsessed with it.”

Available in rich black, brown black and deep blue, this tubing mascara is crafted with Flake-Free Tubing Technology™, which is designed to lengthen lashes. It’s also super easy to remove, and the product is designed to slide right off the eyelashes simply with water and a washcloth.

Don’t just take our word for it, though. A Thrive Causemetics consumer study found that 100% of users noted that the product remains flake-free, while 90% claimed it was easy to remove.

The makeup and skincare brand offers products that are vegan and cruelty-free, and purchases help support a variety of notable causes, like education and LGBTQ+ resources and communities.
