Rated 4.22 out of 5 stars
I use it about every day, *whispers* I sleep in it *whispers* it's easy to wash off, doesn't last when slept on ( but you should wash it off) doesn't flake, if wet, does run. Great for the price for sure!
I usually wear Tarte or Benefit mascara. I've tried many different kinds before so I have a good idea of what I like and what I do not like. I had received this as a gift. After reading the reviews, since I had never heard of this brand before, I was hopeful it would be just as good as the more expensive brands that I'm used to. Boy, was I wrong. I had always wondered if I should settle for drugstore mascaras to save $ since that's all I used to wear back in the day. This smudged on my eyelids so bad and I was careful when applying. Also, didn't care for the brush I found it too bulky. It seemed really hard to build up; I really had to wiggle the brush back and forth to feel like it was sticking to my lashes. I had to apply like 20 layers. It ended up spider-leggy and some flakes fell under my eye during wear. I like a mascara that lifts my lashes this did not at all it just seemed to make them stand straight out. Maybe curling them first would fix this issue but I have found mascaras that have the lifting effect so I'll stick with those to save time. Also, it burned my eyes after awhile. I noticed it was not waterproof and that is what I need especially since I wear contacts all of the time. Personally, it's worth it to me to splurge on the more pricey mascaras. I wish I had pictures to compare because the difference (at least for my lashes) is HUGE! Higher end mascaras > cheap mascara.

One of the best cheap mascaras I've tried by far!!!

The false lash effect that I normally get was out of stock and I tried this one instead. It left a ton of clumping and was just an awful experience. No comparison. I have short lashes and was not expecting length, but the formula was worse than expected.

Flakes if more than one coat is put on and slightly clumps.

I liked how black this mascara is, it just clumped my lashes together way more then expected. Honestly would not buy again.

For reference, my lashes are long, thin, and extremely straight. this mascara thickens, and lengthens, and it does hold a small curl. I like the brush shape, it helps give my lashes some shape, instead of being completely straight. For me it did not flake, or smear. Only thing that could be better is to be less clumpy, it's not that bad tho. This is a really great mascara for the price. I will be repurchasing.

I used a leg thing mascara before using the princess one to actually get good results so don't use this on it's own
Sapph from Indiana
With sensitive eyes that water, esp outdoors, I need a mascara that won't run or get in to my eyes. The consultant recommended this & I was skeptical because of the price point, but it is the BEST & I'll never go back to overpriced mascara. Amazing!
la from Braintree
It does it's job for making it look like you have something on , but it's so unbelievably flaky. I have other mascaras that do this over time with very little flake , but after a day of wear it's really noticeable that your under eyes have black bits on them. Very drying too. Not great maybe good for a beginner but not convenient for everyday wear.

I have tried the false lash green version of essence and tried it out at the same time I tried this one. This one wins for me in almost every aspect. The green one clumped so fast for me and just was flaky and irritated my eyes. When I wear this, I get none of that! Makes my lashes look so full and lush and is a dream to apply on lower lashes without clumping. This one doesn't dry up as fast as the green version.

I've been using the Essence Lash Princess False Effect Mascara for years & decided to try some of the other mascaras from Essence. This one does not compare at all! It goes on very chunky and leaves my lashes heavy & falling down. I also notice fall out during the day which never happens with the False Effect formula.
Rebecca from Paso Robles, Ca
I love this brand of mascara. One of the sales associates turned me on to it. I had been buying expensive mascara for years. This works just as good if not better.
Jen from Oregon
It's just your regular run of the mill drug store mascara. It's a good choice if your on a budget or just need something quick cause your out of your favorite one/left it at home, whatever, but it's nothing to brag about. Not much for volume or length, but wasn't clumpy and did last all day. It did give a burning sensation on my eyelids, but that's why I usually don't buy the drug store mascaras, because that's a fairly normal reaction for me from the cheaper end brands.
Juliana from Washington
It makes my lashes super long, curled, and volumized! This is my go to mascara for every occasion. I always get compliments on my lashes whenever I wear it : )
Josie from Milwaukee
Thought I'd give this product a try since many swear by it. All it did was apply dry and continued to flake off the rest of the day. Don't recommend.
Mads from California
I wouldn't say the mascara is amazing. Good mascara to get if you're on a budget. Isn't clumpy and is easy to apply, just not my fav.
Cee from Los Angeles, CA
It was ok didn't make my eyelashes stand out as much as i wanted it to. Didn't lift them or nothing barely made a difference.
Susie from Hazleton Pa
Have tried many mascara over the years all different price ranges and I really really like this one better than most
Emmi from Florida

Sarah from California
I've never used a mascara so wet. I have long lashes but they're super straight, so I curl them a lot, but this mascara just straightened them back out in seconds. I don't see myself using it in the future
Nicoleee from Vermont
And yes I've tried the green, purple, blue and the "hello" ones. Always clumpy, messy, transferred all over, just not for me. But this one, lengthens and thickens without being too much or too messy.
Ruth from Wesley Chapel, FL
This product stays on real well and makes your lashes look fuller and longer
MK from DC
This is the best mascara I have ever used. I've been searching for the perfect mascara and this is it. It volumizes, curls, and barely FLAKES!! I swear every other mascara I've tried has flaked and irritated my eyes. If you're looking for a mascara to try, I recommend trying this, especially with the affordable price tag.
Camerina from Des Moines, IA
this mascara did not alot for volume. the lash princess collection has one amazing product but this I returned. the false effects mascara did a lot so this was a disappointment.
tessa from Omaha, NE
