Beauty Review | Essence "Get Big Lashes" Volume Curl Mascara

Monday, April 1, 2013

Hello, lovelies! So here I am, with my first beauty review. I've been waiting for this moment for so long - to share my thoughts and feelings on certain products is my favorite thing among my friends and I love reading reviews (of products that I can actually find where I live which is not that many in the blogosphere) so I thought I should combine these things! But not to blab anymore - here it is:

I've tried a lot of different mascaras in my lifetime and they helped me figure out what I look for in a mascara and the main thing is length. Even though my natural lashes are quite long I love length way more than volume. And here I am, reviewing volumizing mascara.
Well, first thing that I noticed when looking at all kinds of different mascaras at the Essence counter are the wands. My last mascara was also one of the Essence's ones and I loved it so I knew I wanted to try more from this particular brand.

The formula of this mascara is quite odd and I didn't think I will like it at first. It's very wet and can be a trouble to work with since it can easily get on your lids while applying. Nothing a couple of cotton swabs couldn't wipe away, though. Also, it takes a little bit of time to dry on your lashes but not more than 10 seconds. If you are a fan of wet mascaras - this one's for you. I believe that after a couple more weeks it will start to dry up and be much easier to work with.

As for the wand - it's amazing. In the picture above you can see how clumpy it looks but I haven't had any problem with clumps what so ever, it's probably because of it's liquid-ness and a lack of dosator in a tube it won't stick to the wand. The wand is slightly curved which gives a little more control when it comes to picking up lashes from the very bottom. It's also very big and can cover all of my lashes in one swipe but I like to add a little more length to the corners.
Because of all of this it gives an amazing effect. I've received a ton of compliments on my lashes being super long and separated and that's exactly what I was looking for in a mascara.

I hope this review was somewhat helpful, I'm not a pro in writing these so leave any questions or suggestions in a comments bellow so I could do better next time.
