Before I begin, I can’t seem to recall when the last time I used Mascara was. It was a good couple of years ago and I was totally into the hardcore Max Factor and Maybelline ones at that time. Fast forward to 2015 and with a pair of immensely sensitive eyes, when I started getting into makeup and buying eye products I was in tears, literally. Anything too strong would immediately make my eyes water. I was eyeing quite a lot of Max Factor Mascaras but one swatch of them and I knew they weren’t going to work for me plus wassup with the crispy lashes man? Like seriously? (I am talking like an old woman I know but please bear with me…) After almost giving up, I ended up at Essence Cosmetics counter. I saw this pretty bottle, picked it up, paid for it and left. Best.decision.ever.
Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara comes in a salmon pink cylinder shaped bottle. It has a curved fiber brush and almost tightly packed bristles. The curved fiber brush provides the lashes with a perfect dramatic curl. The tightly packed bristles help in giving the lashes the most volume. The formula is thick but doesn’t weigh down your lashes. It also doesn’t make them go crispy after a while of applying. The color is darkest black that gives the eyelashes an intense look. It has a similar scent that most mascara’s have but isn’t irritating. It didn’t sting my eyes.
It is not waterproof but it ends up staying on for a good 4-6 hours. It doesn’t smudge and doesn’t lose its curl that quickly unless you are sweating like a sinner in church. You don’t need any fancy eye makeup remover for it. It comes off easily with water itself. I carry it around in my bag and I have no complains about any slippage. The packaging is sturdyyy.
If you’re someone who is just beginning with makeup and don’t know which one to pick I would recommend Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara. Not only is it easy on the eyes but it also gives your eyes the most gorgeous effect.
Essence Cosmetics have a range of other mascaras too and I can’t wait to try them all now. *excited*
PS. I did try to take a picture with the mascara in action but it was an epic fail. I shall soon learn how to take pictures with mascara on, don’t you worry.
PSS. I get asked a lot where I get Essence product from. I get mine mostly from Carrefour Hypermarket in Muscat City Center, Seeb. Their counter is also available in:
Carrefour Hypermarket – Qurum City Center
The Sultan Center – Qurum
Vacha’s Hypermarket – Al Azaiba
And just in case anyone is wondering, here is Essence Cosmetics Oman official Facebook page.
