Review: Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

The first thing that drew me to the Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara was the adorable packaging. The tube has a really cute corset design at the top and it is super pretty. The second thing that appealed to me was the price – $4.99. With those two factors and my Shoppers Optimum card in hand I was sold!

The Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara was pretty much just a purchase I made on a whim because it looked super cute, but man am I glad I got it! This mascara is amazing and with one single coat I had great lashes. It was so cheap that I worried there would be nothing to it but it totally delivered. I got long dark lashes with no clumps. The brush is neat and has a curve to it, which I really like. With a great wand and a great formula this has turned into one of my favourite mascaras.

You can see for yourself the difference between my bare lashes and one coat of mascara. I didn’t use a curler on them before applying the mascara so any volume you see is completely from the mascara.

My lashes look like I have a completely full fringe and I can’t stop checking them out in the mirror. It really looks like I have a ton of lashes and I definitely don’t have that effect all the time. For a mascara that was under $5 this was a total steal. Long, dark, defined full lashes – what more could you want for a five dollar bill?

There is a Lash Princess False Effect Mascara but it was sold out when I was shopping. I wonder if that one would be even better than this one so I might have to check it out one day.

Have you tried the Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara or any other one from Essence Cosmetics?
