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.

I am pleasantly surprised with this product! It's amazing! Great length and volume!

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.

I tried this one after enjoying the green tube - this is so much better! I love this and have a few backups already.

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!!

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.

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
I will buy this product until they no longer make it!!!
Gwen from Winston Salem, NC
I love this product! This mascara is the only one I've ever tried that built up my lashes made them look longer and fuller. I've tried many and even tried "new" ones that come out and I always end up returning them and going back to this one. I highly recommend it and the price is great!!!
One swipe is all you need!
Beth from Arkansas
This product was recommended to me by a friend and she wasn't wrong! I have sort lashes and one swipe doubled their length!
Pretty darn good!
HB from TN
I love how one swipe is enough for great full coverage. It really fans the lashes out and does a good job for the price.

I don't like it
Nicholena from Tucson, AZ
Easy to use. The wand itself is very easy to sculpt your lashes the way you love. Does not dry out fast like others that can be quite pricy. The only thing that could be taken negatively is maybe the removal part? I needed a little bit of an oily type remover. But I personally appreciate that. I have bad allergies and my eyes water a lot. This stuff is amazing and I NEVER use waterproof mascara.
Jas from Granbury, tx
It's not to wet or not too dry. It literally is sooo good and for the price you can't beat it! Does exactly what it says, gives volume!
It's an okay mascara
Jennyskye from Atlanta GA
I bought this mascara because when I saw it on the Ulta associate, her lashes were beautiful and full of volume. I have long and full natural lashes myself but for some reason it kind of looked clumpy on me. Im going to continue to try it out to see how it goes. The price is very affordable. Works well for a cheap mascara.
I love it
Samantha from Massachusetts
I really like this mascara. I saw it as a dupe on tiktok so I decided to try because it's cheap! It gave me the thick eyelashes I like!
my fav go to mascara!
kaylee from Orange County
I own four mascaras: better than sex, lash paradise, great lash big mascara, and this one. out of all of those four, this one has to be my favorite! I love the angled brush which makes it easier to apply on your lashes and it DOESNT CLUMP at all. It holds the curl of my lashes for about 4-6 which is fine for me. I love this product and it's super affordable too!
Fatima from Chicago
It's an okay mascara. I have long straight lashes and this mascara weights them down. I also noticed fall out. I tried the false lash effect (green) from this brand and it's wayyyyy better. Get that one instead.
Love this mascara
Tia from Houston Texas
Great product. It adds length and thickness with one application but you can layer it for more length and thickness. I told friends about the product and bought another one. Must try and very budget friendly.
The best mascara I've ever used
Ana from Las Vegas
I used to use Better than sex mascara but now I will never go back. I've been using this mascara for 4 years and I absolutely love it.
Al from NY
I use this mascara after i have applied my initial mascara and it's amazing! It adds a ton of volume and it doesn't flake off throughout the day. Great for the price, if you're debating- definitely buy it!
Not the greatest
