So time for more mascara ! This particular mascara was a gift from fiance’s little sis . She bought this tried it out and didn’t like it , so she asked me if I wanted to try it out, and I said sure ! Plus it’s been forever since I’ve tried anything Essence , I think it was thier liquid liner last time . Plus the rubber design on the top of the cap is pretty cute . Like a corset or dress lacing. Oh wait very similar to a certain Prinzessin:
I’m sure Fischl would appreciate the design as well .
Pretty cute in my opinion !
Now lets check out the wand :
Now for me I’m not the biggest fan of this brush, and the formula is a bit goopy. But Too Faced Damn Girl ! Hd a similar round brush style and I liked it and Milk’s brush is also kind of weird and I love that.
But … The formula is goopy and if you’re not careful it can make a mess of things including your eyes . So definitely try to swipe of the excess. I had some mascara just goop out as I was pushing the wand back in. So a bit messy. Also it did slightly clump my lashes a bit , plus seperating the lashes seemed to have gotten more mascara on my hands. I really should’ve used another straighter brush to sperate them. Oh well, I do feel it fanned out my lashes and made the curl just a bit as my eyes looked wider . But the goopiness is a bit of problem and letting it the mascara dry a bit is a must.
Eyes together ! I feel like it looks better in the pictures than it did in real life . I do feel like the eye on the left has a bit of spideriness on the bottom lash. The right one somehow came out perfect. So I would reccomend using a nother brush to seperate lashes .
Now for the individual eye pictures. I finally got to photograph Purple Violet and Lucky Clover from the Garden of Juvia’s palette. I also added Money Tree and a smokey shade from the orginal Wahala palette.
This side got a bit more light with the flash , I do like the curling effect from the mascara , but I wish it wasn’t so goopy.
Here’s the other eye and you can kind of see where the top lashes stick together. Clumpiness is definitely an issue with this mascara.
I didn’t notice any flakiness or dryness though and it did seem to lengthen and curl . So it’s kind of a mid product in my opnion .
The length it added was nice but the tendency to clump wasn’t as nice.
Not neccessarily my favorite drugstore but better than say the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara Review. Overall I’ll probably rotate this and the Elf Big Mood mascara to get rid of both, but I probably wouldn’t buy this . Even if the tube is pretty cute and lacey.
Have a good Friday everyone and let me know what you think. Have you tried any other Essence products before?
