Essence The False Lashes Mascara -Extreme Volume & Curl

Hello, hello!

Today I have a little review of another mascara from Essence – The False Lashes Mascara Extreme Volume & Curl. [info in italics is taken from their EU website]

Essence False Lashes Mascara

extra volume, extra curl. the curl fiber brush ensures maximum volume and curved lashes with a false lash look.

My lashes are long and stick straight, so I have to curl my lashes before I apply mascara or else it looks like I don’t have any lashes. As well, my eyes are sensitive so many mascaras irritate my eyes.

I have seven requirements for a mascara:

1. waterproof

2. smudge-proof

3. non-flaking / non-clumping

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black)

5. volumizing

6. must hold a curl

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes

So how did this mascara measure up?

The False Lash Mascara is not a waterproof formulation, but despite this, I found it to be fairly water-resistant and smudgeproof for my eyes. If you don’t blot off the end of the wand before applying, you will get clumps. But over all I don’t find it to be overly flaky or clumpy. That being said, I don’t wear more than two coats of mascara – I think that three coats would not work well for this one.

Colour-wise, it is super, mega, dark black – my absolute favourite. And it is definitely volumizing and holds a curl well for me.  And most importantly, it did not irritate my sensitive eyes.

It is a little difficult to remove than some non-waterproof formulations, but since I usually wear waterproof mascaras, it is nothing that a bit of coconut oil can’t remove.

Overall I would rate this one at 6.75 out of 7 – even higher than the Essence Lash Stylist 18H Curl & Hold Mascara (review is here).

What is your fave budget friendly mascara? For less than $5, I think that Essence mascaras are a great choice.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
