Beauty influencer Mikayla Nogueira is copping some heat from the beauty community after allegedly lying in a TikTok video promoting L'Oreal mascara.
In the video, Mikayla is seen raving about L'Oreal's Telescopic mascara, but it’s the ending that has fans in an uproar.
She begins by claiming: "This literally just changed my life," before applying a layer of the product.
After adding one coat, Mikayla says she's going to add a second coat of mascara before the video jumps to her final result, showing off her thick lashes that appear extremely longer than before.
"Look at the length. Do you see that? I am speechless," Mikayla says.

However, viewers are alleging that the "mascara" seen at the end of the video appears to be false eyelashes since Mikayla's natural lashes are much shorter than how they appear at the end of the video.
The final result lashes also appear to extend far beyond the influencer's natural lash line.
One girl asked: "Do the falsies come with the mascara?"
"Girl, be f*cking for real, you can see the lashes at the end," another added.
"Please don’t insult our intelligence like this…" firmly said a third.
Over 6 million people have seen Mikayla's original video, which has drawn criticism from fans and other beauty influencers including beauty guru Kathleen Lights.
"I stay out of drama, I don't wanna talk s--- about anybody, like at all. But I was on TikTok, and I saw a big influencer who I respect, and she's awesome, and I like her TikToks a lot... I'm like shaking because I'm so shocked," Kathleen said in an Instagram Story.
"It's very, very clear, but she's saying that they're not falsies. Damn, that really sucks for the rest of us who are so honest.”
In a strangely ironic twist, Mikayla has previously posted a TikTok video in 2021 calling out the way that influencers use fake eyelashes to promote mascara.
"So I just lied straight to your face. These lashes? Totally fake. And that's what brands do, they lie to you about how things work," Mikayla says in the resurfaced clip.
Mikayla has not commented on the drama, but we’ll be waiting to see if she does.
