If you are looking for a great low budget mascara that makes your lashes look amazing and that actually holds up all day, Essence Cosmetics is the makeup brand to be. They have many mascaras that are capable of absolute lash transformations, but the Lash Princess formula must be the best one out of all. I was very reluctant to purchase these at first as they were very hyped in the beauty community. Right now, many repurchases later, I'm still just as impressed. They have become my go-to favorite mascaras in my every day makeup routine. Let's have a look!
Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara (coral)
I usually dislike weirdly shaped brushes but this cobra model seems to do wonders on my lashes. It coats them very even without clumping. My lashes look long, stay curled and make my eyes really stand out. I have almond shaped eyes so that last one is really important to me. I love this mascara, it's the absolute best. It doesn't flake or smudge and is perfectly buildable. It also seems to have a bit of a waterproof formula since I have some trouble taking it off in the evenings before bed time.
The green sequel turned out to be a disappointment at first, not because it's a bad mascara but because it lacked a wow factor for me. It's nothing like the first mascara Essence Cosmetics came out with and it most definitely does not give me much of a false lash effect. I wonder whether it has something to do with the wand. The bristles are closer together and the product doesn't seem to spread out evenly. My lashes always end up looking really spidery and near the end of the day it smudges on me terribly. I did find out however that this mascara works excellent as either a mascara base or topcoat. As soon as this mascara is paired up with another mascara it's locked in and looks beautiful. The two Essence Lash Princess mascaras together are a great combo! I'm wearing it here in my Best Of Essence Cosmetics Makeup video. The Essence Lash Princess Mascaras are available in Belgium at Kruidvat and retail for €3.39.
