Is it just me, or do you run through tubes of mascara at an eye-opening pace? It seems like one day you have a rich formula that glides right on and the next, you’re faced with flakey lashes and a wand full of clumps.

The obvious solution to avoiding stale cosmetics is to stock up ahead of time—and you can do just that without breaking the bank thanks to HSN’s Best in Beauty sale, happening now! Get your hands on the Benefit Cosmetics Bombshell Mascara 4-piece Set—which includes not one but four tubes of the brand’s bestselling, lash-enhancing formulas for just $39 (24 percent off!) until Wednesday, March 18.

Some offer dramatic va-va-voom volume, while others are more toned down and daytime-appropriate. Keep different styles in rotation if that’s how you roll, or use them one at a time if you want your mascara to last longer.

And if Benefit isn’t on your radar yet, it should be—the brand is in the business of making top-notch mascaras for every occasion. In fact, they produce the #1 and #2 best-selling luxury mascaras in the U.S.—and they’re both included in this deal! I test-drove these two mascaras just to make sure they live up to the hype (spoiler alert: they do).

Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara

Designed to make your lashes look wispy and long — think Lucille Ball — this is the perfect mascara for everyday wear. It gives my lashes just the right amount of volume to enhance my eyes, and all the length I want while still looking natural and not overly done.

My favorite thing about They’re Real! lengthening mascara is its applicator. It has a domed tip that makes applying it to my lower lashes easier than with any other wand I’ve tried. Its rubberized bristles make my lashes look separated and never clumpy. It’s the kind of wand that you wash off (thoroughly) to keep after you’re finished with the mascara because it’s just that good.

For days (or nights) that you want a bolder lash look, Roller Lash is your girl. Even if you’re not into makeup and never wear eyeshadow, it gives your lashes a bit of oomph — think ‘60s level volume and Twiggy Lawson.

Roller Lash curling mascara has a curved wand that will lift even the straightest lashes. And somehow, the formula is super volumizing without giving me tarantula eyelashes, which are my worst nightmare. Instead, it sort of makes my lashes look like I just got out of the pool and they’re stuck together and bold in the best way.

During HSN’s Best in Beauty week, I was able to score a 4-piece box set deal with both mascaras in full and travel sizes. Because it’s marked down to $39 (originally $50) until March 18, it cost the same as getting one tube of each mascara individually. I keep the full sizes at home and the travel sizes at my desk and in my purse for touch-ups or in case I go out after work.

Buying all four of those products together would normally cost $76, so buying the box set for $39 on HSN is almost like getting the whole beauty haul for half price. Let’s just say your makeup game is about to get a whole lot stronger.
