Essence Volume Stylist Mascara Review

If you love makeup and you haven't tried an Essence mascara yet, where the hell have you been? Mascaras from Essence Cosmetics easily beat regular drugstore mascaras for me. They have amazing formulas and make for long and curly black lashes. Every year Essence revamps their makeup line and brings out new and improved products, the Essence Volume Stylist Mascaras were at the top of my list for review, I couldn't wait to try them. Let's have a look!

Cause Even A Girl Boss Needs A Break

I usually have my shit together when it comes to my online activities (e.g. blogging 3x a week and uploading on Youtube every Saturday) but for the last month or so not so much. I thought I'd change it up a bit over here and actually talk about why I've been recycling and up-cycling some of my older blogposts, among other things, just to be able to keep everything running smoothly.

Makeup & The Power Of Social Media

Being someone who started following beauty bloggers over a decade ago I've seen a lot of changes in the online beauty world, makeup trends come and go, but one that has definitely caught my eye is the rise of 'social media makeup brands'. What I mean by social media makeup is: cosmetics that are pretty much unknown for anyone who doesn't spend their time on youtube or scrolling through blogs and thousands of flatlays on Instagram (like I do). Way back when I was 16, the only makeup brands that dominated beauty and makeup channels on youtube were Coastal Scents and Sigma (any of you remember?). Today, being able to get a spot in a beauty bloggers' blog post, youtube video, Snapchat- or Instastory means big bucks, zero honesty and/or transparency and petty drama. Here's why I don't buy from social media makeup brands.

LIDL has an affordable makeup collection by the name of Cien Beauty, carrying products such as foundation, lipstick, lipgloss and more recently the Cien all-in-one BB cream SPF 15.

Essence Cosmetics Lash Princess Sculpted Volume Mascara Review

I love the Essence Lash Princess Mascaras, they're affordable and work wonders on your lashes! Their popularity certainly hasn't gone unnoticed for the Essence Cosmetics team and in February 2017 they launched yet another Lash Princess mascara: a purple one this time, for some extra sculpted volume, as a part of the new Essence makeup collection for the Spring/Summer season. If you're not familiar with this formula, check my review of the other Lash Princess Mascaras here.
