Brooks Nader and Heidi Klum.

We love learning about the products our favorite models rely on, and 2023 SI Swimsuit Issue cover girl Brooks Nader recently opened up to CNN Underscored about a few of her must-have beauty items. As it turns out, she and Heidi Klum are fans of the same drugstore mascara that’s not only super affordable, but results in lush, gorgeous lashes.

In fact, Nader told the outlet that she’s been returning to this go-to product since her teen years. “I’ve used this mascara since I was 16-years-old,” she stated. “It’s the best, and it’s under 10 bucks, can’t beat that!”

This clump- and flake-resistant mascara offers thicker, more voluminous lashes and is safe for both contact lens wearers and those with sensitive eyes. In addition to the typical shades of brown and black, it’s available in a few more fun hues like cobalt blue, burgundy and deep green, if you’re looking to spice up your glam a bit.

In addition to Nader’s stamp of approval, Klum revealed in an Instagram story last month that the very same L’Oréal product is always in her makeup bag. So, if you’re in the market for a new mascara (remember, you should replace your tube every three months), consider this model-approved pick that won’t break the bank.
