Love Island’s Molly spotted using £26 mascara from Boots that’s got over 18,000 five star reviews 

Hundreds of Boots beauty buys have entered the villa - and Islanders have already been sharing their favourites

Love Island is back on our screens once again for eight weeks of recoupling, romance and reality TV drama. And once again, the villa has been kitted out to the brim with a whole host of hair, beauty and wellness products from Boots , as the high street retailer couples up with the ITV2 dating show for another year.

Within the first five minutes of the new series, we’d already spotted 10 of our best-loved beauty buys in the dressing room, including the likes of the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser, Boots Ingredients Shampoo and Conditioner, and Fenty Fat Water Toner.

After the public determined who would be coupling up, the Islanders were let loose in the villa for the first time, before getting ready for a night of alcohol-free beer pong full of dares.

As the girls were getting ready for their night out with the boys, our eagle-eyed team noted Real Techniques brushes and Dyson Airwraps in use - but there's on beauty buy in particular that captured our attention on screen after spotting it being used by blonde bombshell Molly Marsh.

The 21-year-old musical theatre actress could be seen carefully applying the £26 MAC Stack Mascara to her peepers. We’d recognise that iconic packaging anywhere.

And it's no surprise that it's already proven popular in the villa, since shoppers have given it a whopping 18,000 five star reviews since it launched in March 2022. The cult-loved beauty product is also stocked at LookFantastic , however at Beauty Bay, you can get a full-size MAC Stack mascara plus five other MAC favourites worth £102 for £35.

Customers have obsessed over the ‘no clumps or flakes’ formula, with one even saying it looked like they had lash extensions.

One review read: "This really is magic. My lashes look longer and fuller; no clumps or flakes can pile on the volume." Another added: "This is absolutely unbelievable. I have tiny eyelashes, but this made my eyelashes so long. I'm totally hooked on this, my daughter asked if I had extensions in,she also couldn't believe they were my lashes."

While a third wrote: "This is what I wish Lancome Idole and Too Faced did. One swipe and you have volume and length! Two swipes and it's falsie level! I use a separate brush for brushing out clumps but you may like that look. I always aim for natural and this does it with a bit of drama."

But it wasn't everyone's type on paper, with some complaining it's: "Expensive for what it is and very thick and clumpy."

As the exclusive beauty partner for Love Island this year, Boots have filled the villa with hundreds of must-have products , and we can't wait to see what the summer's hottest beauty trends turn out to be.
