What the brand says
Want to experience the glamour of a princess? Essence will help you on your way with their Essence Lash Princess False Lash effect mascara. the mascara has been designed with a fibre brush that has a unique conic shape to help give lashes a false lash effect.
I first heard about Essence False Lash Princess mascara in a news story that was raving about the massive false lashes you get from a budget mascara. The picture showed a before and after and it was certainly impressive – a false lash effect for less than a fiver!
With a pretty decorative design the mascara stands out a lot more than a typical mascara. The mascara fibre brush has tapered bristles to fit the contours of your eye. When I first used it the brush had a small amount of gloopy product overhang but this didn’t transfer onto the main bristles. The product glided onto my lashes with ease and in seconds my lashes were transformed. The mascara helps to lift and adds definition to my naturally fine lashes. I did feel the formula was a little too thick which unfortunately resulted in some clumping. After applying eyeliner the mascara wasn’t that visible so i did have to apply around 3 layers to get the false lash effect I desired.
The mascara lasts all day without fading or flaking and didn’t smudge. It felt really comfortable to wear and my lashes stayed full and volumised all day without dropping. The only major downside is the clumping which is a little annoying but can easily be sorted with a lash brush. At £3.30 this costs a tiny bit more than a cup of coffee at Costa but it will last you a damn sight longer!
I give it 4/5
- Lashes stay lifted and volumised all day
- No fading or flaking
- Comfortable to wear
- Great budget price
- Clumps lashes
