Most Helpful Positive Review I would definitely buy this again!
I love this mascara! I'm so glad I ordered 4 in my first order since it was out of stock the first time I wanted to order. When it came back in stock I just went ahead and ordered 4 mascaras! I have one to a friend and she also loves it. I'm happy I listened to a blogger I follow and tried it out. I love the brush. It's great and separates your lash while giving you volume and length!
Most Helpful Critical Review Droopy lashes
I had really high expectations for this mascara, but it just didn't measure up. The brush itself is great and really does a great job of thickening the lashes while separating them, BUT I curled my lashes and the second I put this mascara on, they lost all curl and just looked droopy. The formula isn't that wet, but I guess it's just heavy? I'm not sure. But I'm definitely going back to the green lash princess formula, as it could hold a curl really well despite the brush not being as nice. For now, just gonna use this one as a bottom lash mascara.

loved it and so affordable
Not bad for price
LLX1000 from IL
Not bad for price but it does go on really thick and it's messy. But it does make my lashes look long
Teresa L from Pensacola Fl
I've heard a bunch of really great reviews about this mascara. But half way through the day I had flakes everywhere, including on my glasses.
Mary from Seattle, Wa
If you're on a budget, it's a great mascara for that price
My new favorite thing!
KMlb from Long Beach CA
I've already shared my new find with all of my friends! Great mascara, I bought two!
JaylahNmakeUP from NYC
This product does give your lashes an awesome boost and was't crazily priced! However, it clumps like CRAZY!! Everytime I wear it, you can sooo see clumps of black mascara, so you can tell I'm wearing mascara for my lengthy eyelashes!! I really wish it didn't clump so much, and made my eyelashes look a little bit thicker, fuller, longer?? I mean, i'm not %100 dissatisfied tho.
It's meant for my lashes... Why is it all over my face?
MKKH from Cincinnati, OH
I usually like a runny and thin mascara... anything too heavy causes me to rub my lashes all day and I end up with more mascara under my eyes than on my lashes. After seeing how thin and runny this formula was, I thought this would be amazing! And it's amazing... at smearing all over my face.
Though it does make my eyelashes look like they go all the way up to my eyebrows and they are finally dark and full enough that they're noticeable... I have to keep my blow dryer near me in the mornings because this formula takes so long to dry that if I blink... I have mascara all over me. I have started to have to blow dry my lashes in the morning so that I can finish getting ready without having to do my eye makeup twice and it's a pain!
I could see where this formula would be amazing on false lashes and really good for someone with short and thin lashes... but for someone who has decently long lashes this is just a good dupe for not getting enough sleep for two weeks straight.

Saw results immediately- didn't require multiple coats!
Formula is too dry
Lu from AZ
I love a curved wand with traditional bristles, so I tried several from the brand. No-go for me. The formula is too dry and it doesn't glide well—little flaky speckles along the slashes on the first coat. How on earth is this one of their best sellers?!
Too runny and smears easily
Nina from Missouri
Got this mascara after it got so much praise and I wanted to try something new besides my trusty Maybelline Falsies mascara. To be honest it doesn't even come close to it. The wand is awkwardly shaped and it's hard to apply mascara sometimes. It's very wet and you gotta be really careful when applying it, and like I said, wand doesn't help. It smears really easily without even touching your face. If you use sunscreen or have oilier skin beware, it will leave dark residue under your eyes if it touches it, it just melts so easily!! I like the way it makes my eyelashes look and that's only reason it's getting 2/5 instead 1 Star.
Buy this! And the green one!
Megsie from Louisiana
Buy this one and the green one! Layer them up! You'll thank me later! (Or not, because this is just a review)
I'm so happy with this purchase. I'll never buy the prestige brands again !
Karen from Tustin
This mascara made my regular lashes look like falsies! There are so many mascaras that tend to bring the curl from ur lash down after a long day but this one keeps them up! ABSOLUTELY LOVED!
So Cheap Yet Soo Good
LaLa from chicago
This product was a great find. I go to it whenever I need to look fabulous, and every time I wear it I get compliments. I have mascara that cost $30+ and it doesn't look as good or last as long. If you don't properly take it off you will wake up with it on. I've done power workouts with it and it doesn't even smudge. Love this product.
Never buying this again
'Rica from Las Vegas
I'm sorry, I have no idea why this has so many positive reviews. It applies just like an average mascara, but it flakes horrible! I applied the mascara right before I headed out the door and within 2 hours of wear it was flaking all over. Definitely not going to buy or recommend to anyone EVER! It doesn't have enough positives to over look the way it flakes. Worst mascara buy I have ever made!
Curls from Tennessee
I am pleasantly surprised with this product! It's amazing! Great length and volume!
MamaBear76 from Crawfordsville
It's just a black mascara.....didn't do anything magical, but at that price point, I wasn't exactly hopeful anyway. It does stay put all day, even in Indiana's 90+ degree heat and humidity. It doesn't flake either, which is a huge plus.
Ashley from Colorado
I tried this one after enjoying the green tube - this is so much better! I love this and have a few backups already.
Mezabreed from Fontana
I don't wear falsies so I'm ALL ABOUT MASCARA! I love the green and purple bottles! Gives your lashes length and fullness. Stop wasting your money on other expensive brands because this mascara will definitely impress you!
This is my new favorite!!
Ashley's Mom from Philadelphia, PA
This is my "go to" mascara.
I saw this on Ulta website. I had been looking for a new mascara. I used Estee Lauder for years but started to notice that it was bothering my eyes.
I tried "Better than Sex" but it would start to thicken up after a week or so which made it clump on my lashes
I tried Lancome mascaras b/c I use the Lancome lash primer. The Lancome mascaras were adequate but I really didn't love them.
Next I tried MANEATER mascara by Tarte. I really liked the coverage but I wasn't crazy about the applicator brush.
Someone had recommended I try this brand and I was skeptical b/c of the price. It's even less expensive than the mascaras you can buy at the Drugstore, and I don't use drugstore mascaras. I haven't really used them since I graduated from College and was making good enough money to justify spending over $25 for a tube.
I really love this mascara and the price is an added bonus.
Give it a try, what can you lose for $5?
This isn't the only one that Essence makes, so if this one doesn't fit the bill you can also try Princess "False Lash Effect"
"Lash Princess Volume mascara"
"Bye Bye Panda Eyes"
"What the Fake Volumizing and Lengthening"
"I love Extreme Crazy Volume"
"Get Big" and several more, I won't list them all but I recommend you keep trying until you find the best one for you; that's what I did and I'm so glad.
I think they have more variety of brands than anyone else. Don't let the inexpensive price scare you, it almost put me off until someone suggested I try it.
JessTheMess from USA
This is the 2nd time I've purchased this mascara. If you're on the fence about trying this mascara, just buy it. I love this mascara because it makes my eyelashes look amazing. I have used Too Faced, L'oreal and Maybelline in the past. Essence is my favorite because it doesn't clump, flake or smear. Easy to apply too!!!
It found lashes I didn't know I had
Debbyl from Babylon
I cannot believe how amazing this mascara is. I have the worst lashes. Not only are they sparse but they lie flat. This mascara with the first coat grabs them and lifts with amazing volume and length. The price is unbelievable and so far I've bought about ten products from this line and each are better than the next.
The only mascara I will ever use
Paige F. from St. Louis, MO
I have purchased this mascara so many times and it never gets old. I love the effect it gives and after applying two coats my lashes look amazing. This product gives my lashes great length and volume which is awesome for the price. I love love love this mascara and don't think I will ever find another as good.
Love this product, especially for the price!
Shad from Bethlehem, PA
I was shocked how well the product worked, especially for the price. It made my lashes so nice and full.
I think I've found my staple mascara
Emilu from Louisville KY
It's buildable, doesn't flake, isn't clumpy, and makes my lashes look long and full!! Everything I'm looking for in a mascara, really.
I did try the green lash princess first and felt pretty disappointed by it, I think this formula is a lot better.
My go to mascara
Deb in Florida from Naples
Use it every day! Just love all princess mascara
