      Comments about Essence Volumizing Lash Powder:

      Perhaps I just didn't understand that this product was going to be like attic instillation dust, I thought it would be more of a powder consistency. It's very thick and cotton like. It does not go on the lashes easily or consistently. I used the applicator that it came with and a clear mascara wand (as someone in another review suggested) with the same messy results. Needless to say, I will be returning the product and keep looking.

        Comments about Essence Volumizing Lash Powder:

        I tried this product because of the good reviews it received and the low cost. I was pleasantly surprised. It does what it's suppose to do however it takes practice. I found if I keep my eye closed and put very little product on the brush it works like a dream. I don't use it everyday but you definitely can. I gave it only 4 stars because it's a little time consuming to take off.

        Comments about Essence Volumizing Lash Powder:

        Okay, After buyin this and readin the directions (because who the hell reads the directions first? Live a little), I discovered that you're NOT suppose to use with contacts(D**N). Well, me bein the rebal bad@** that I am jumped online and looked for answers as to why I couldn't. I found NOTHING...Nobody has said they had a horrible reaction. No eyeballs fallin out... no blood,puss or gore. Sooo I said what the hell and gave it a try. Now I was blessed with fairly long lashes so don't hate me but I wanted to see how long these babies could get (ask ya man...I'm sure he could relate). Anyways, as you know the bottle has lil fibers that they say will get everywhere. Yes it can but if ya put on ya thinkin cap like I did and not go balls deep into the jar it's not that bad. I just took a sheet of toilet paper and tapped a lil out at a time and roll the lil brush over the fibers. I then put my mascara on. Right after a coat of mascara I applied the fibers. Yes they will fall on ya cheeks if ya gob it on the brush (but you ain't gonna die) so I started out with a lil at first. Ya then put another coat of mascara. I not only wear contacts but I also have sensitive eyes and haven't had any problems or reactions yet. Now if I wake up tomorrow and my eyes are swollen shut, I will have someone find this post and delete it for me..

            This stuff is awesome. I've used primers and I've tried Tarte's faux lash fibers and what I've found is any of the 'fiber' products work about the same regardless of the price. It gives you lots of volume and length quickly and is fairly easy to use, plus for how little you need this jar will last FOREVER.

            I like how false lashes look but I have no desire to glue something to my eye. This stuff gives you the same effect with very little effort. What I do:
            -put a thin coat of mascara on one eye
            -dip pad of finger in fibers, touch to topside and botto side of lashes
            - do the same to other eye
            - when first coat with fibers has dried put mascara over the top of the fibers

            Just like that big '60s lashes without the glue!!

                      this was my other alternative to the urban decay eyelash primer (which is 20) i tought id give this a chance since the ulta i went was out of urban decay. not only was this a waste of money but it hurt soo bad when it got in my eye. it almost feels like fiber glass and i saw no result like with my other one. deff would not recomend and avoid this all together.

                      Great for Some, but Not for All

                      Comments about Essence Volumizing Lash Powder:

                      I have pretty short eyelashes that grow straight down, causing me to have to use multiple coats of different mascaras along with a lash curler. Thanks to this, it gives a little boost of volume. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's kind of messy and gets everywhere. Plus, if it gets in your eye, you're dead.
                      I don't think it is suitable for everyone, and is definitely not an everyday-use product. It has a good purpose and doesn't look THAT bad, but 100% NOT 5 stars.

                      If your lashes are average or better, then this product might not be for you. I have short, sparse lashes (so short I can barely use an eyelash curler; so spare that mascara on its own doesn't really show up on them). This is the only thing that made it look as though I actually have lashes. I make sure my eye is closed and then tap the brush with fibers on top of my lashes, closer to the roots than the tips. And presto, I can see lashes!

                          The fibers are loose and get everywhere when you open. I tried with 4 different mascara brands and types and it did absolutely nothing each time besides get in my eyes and hurt - and make a mess.
