Happy Monday everyone :) I have a new mascara to share with you today.
This mascara is from Essence, a brand I haven't tried a huge amount of products from. For a while this brand was hard to get hold of, but it's now available to buy from Wilko.
This mascara has the cutest packaging - it comes in a black plastic tube that's decorated with rubberised mint details. It looks a bit like a corset laced up; I believe it's designed to look like an evening dress. This packaging makes it look far more expensive than its £3.30 price tag... I don't think it would look out of place on a Too Faced stand.
The wand has a standard plastic bristle fiber brush in a conical shape to add length and dramatic volume for a false lash effect.
With one coat of Lash Princess False Lash Effect. When I first used this mascara I really wasn't impressed - the formula was really wet so it clumped up horribly. I ended up leaving it open for a day and that dried out the formula slightly to give the result you see here. It really darkens, lengthens and volumises my lashes for a dramatic look that isn't too heavy or clumpy. I like it, and I'm glad I was able to make the formula work for me! I would prefer more definition, but I'm being nitpicky.
Even though I had to leave it open to dry out the formula before I could enjoy it, I do really like this mascara and the cute packaging plus the affordable price make it a steal. I need to try more from Essence - do you have any recommendations?
