Review || Essence False Lashes Mascara!

Wednesday, August 02, 2017

The weather’s been hot and pathetically humid lately, right? I constantly feel knackered and ready to jump in bed anytime but then, we must lead life until the wee hours of the night – especially in my case. Nowadays, blogging feels like a chore to me and experts say when you’re passionate about something and it suddenly starts to feel like a burden – you must skip it until you feel excited to do it again. That’s why I’ve been on a break with blogging. I want that same enthusiasm to come back, the words to flow naturally and provide me a pleasant satisfaction once I’ve posted.

Though, today I felt quite readied to put up a post but who knows, my brightened mood may dwindle half way. I’m really, really bored with blogging, so Help Me God! If I sound horrible to you!  

Price, Packaging, and Availability

This mascara cost me 475 PKR and I bought it from Enem Store. You can get this online from and For international users, they can check out the official website of Essence or try Boots.

The packaging is simple, yet fun to look at. I really like the wand – it’s a fiber brush, not plastic or rubber. The wand’s sleek and long – plus beautifully defines my lower lash line. I like how this mascara separates each lash. It does get clumpy, only when you apply tons of coats, so that’s okay by me – since I’m not a layering freak! I have small eyes, so the mascara tends to get smudged – really, I’ll put that blame on my eye size. 

Texture, Longevity, and Scent

The mascara glides on easily, though I do feel it dries a bit too quickly which might have you dipping your wand often. One of my biggest gripes with mascaras is the heavy feeling one gets after application but this one feels lightweight. However, it doesn’t give any curling effect to the lashes, rather my lashes stay defined and straight. It doesn’t have a noticeable scent. I love how black this mascara is, which gives the illusion of ample lashes. 

My Thoughts

I’ve supported Essence, merely because of their mascaras and lip liners. If you need budget-friendly mascaras, Essence is a good brand to choose from. With several coats, I achieve very dramatic lashes but not really thick ones. I will say it’s not very volumizing as much as it’s lengthening. 

Though, I must add it isn’t waterproof – I washed my eyes after applying this and got raccoon eyes in return. I would rate this 3.5/5, since, it does have some loopholes. 


If you need a pocket-friendly and lengthening mascara, you’ll definitely like this.

Would I Repurchase?

I might! But I’m really interested in trying out the Essence Lash Princess Mascara next.
