In today’s post, I am reviewing a secret treasure that I stumbled upon about a month ago by Essence. Actually, my friend who worked at Ulta recommended it to me. I had recently been using Cover Girl Katy Kat Eye Mascara, and while it was a pretty good mascara, I was looking for something to make my lashes even more dramatic.
My friend introduced me to Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. I was expecting this to be a $15.00 or more purchase, but it was actually extremely reasonably priced at $4.99. I wasn’t expecting too much from this mascara, but my friend said a plethora of customers had purchased it and liked it. For $4.99 I thought – why not give it a whirl?
I. Love. This. Mascara. I am going to let the pictures I have taken speak for themselves. I have not edited the lashes or anything in the photos, but I did choose some different photo tones to try to illuminate the lighting so that you could see the lashes better.
The only complaint that I do have about this mascara is that is stays sticky and your lashes are malleable for a couple of minutes. If you’re anything like me, I immediately feel like there is something in my eyes after I apply all of my eye makeup, and if I’m not careful I will screw it up. My advice: Don’t touch your eyelashes for 2-3 minutes after applying this mascara if you can help it.
