Most Helpful Positive Review Better than ALL of my high-end mascaras! An AMAZING find!!
I wasn't expecting much from this but I am completely blown away! I like SUPER dramatic eyes, and I am NOT going for the natural lash look. Currently I use Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir, Clarins Supra Volume, and Stila Huge Extreme Lash. Those are just the ones that made the cut. I've used almost every pricey mascara you can think of, and even many Japanese brands. It obviously comes down to the brush and the formula. This mascara is perfection; super black, not too wet or dry, and a magical brush. I really hope they never stop making this. I have very short skimpy lashes. I curl them with a Shu Uemura, use my Shiseido Nourishing mascara base, and apply mascara. Buy this. Trust me. I'm a doctor. :)

There's really only 2 thing that'll turn me off about a product: it sucks and false claims. I really really really wanted to like it because my lashes look pretty good, but being deceived sucks. I didn't need to stay up for 18 hrs to test it because it began flaking within the 9th hour. That is quite long lasting, but that's the darn title of the mascara cut in half. Plus it clumps on initial application and needs some fixing...It curls so beautifully lengthens lovely, and adds so much more volume. I want to love it, but I can't.

It is quite wet and a bit clumpy, but I do like the length and volume it gives. Sadly it doesn't keep my lashes curled. Immediately after applying this mascara my lashes fell down.
Too clumpy from day one

This mascara is way too clumpy from day one
Will not buy again
Affordable and great!
Coastbby from Tx
The mascara works pretty great and lasts all day. The only troubles I've had is that it's a bit hard to remove (I recommend using an oil or cleansing balm) and the brush gets a bit saturated with product. Otherwise, it's not bad

Not great from Wisconsin
This product is just ok. It is really not that great. I wouldn't buy it again
So difficult to remove
Aniyta from Croatia
This mascara is soooo difficult to remove, as if it was a waterproof mascara! I usually melt my mascara with warm water and pick it off my lashes and then remove residue with some oil. But this mascara does not melt in water, it just releases a few flakes and that's it. I tried melting it with oil and it made a gooey super sticky mess on my eyelids. So, I wash it off with cleansing gel what is not so good for eye area and lashes...I'm thinking about chucking it in the bin after only 10 days of usage and definitely not repurchasing it ever again!
It's just okay
Dani from Indianapolis
The actually mascara formula is usable but the wand just clumps it on your lashes I used another wand to spread it around and make it look better but overall I would not repurchase.
Shinu from Houston
I don't know why people like this mascara. Im just not a fan of the hype for this mascara. I have pretty decent lashes and this did nothing for my lashes. Waste of money
best mascara ever

Good for the price
Ashley j from Utah
This is my holy grail product for the price! I love it! However by the end of the day I always have a bit of smeared mascara on my eyelids. It comes off super easily!
Holds curl all Day!!!
Z from New York
I have small length skinny lashes but this mascara works miracles! it keeps my lashes full of volume and curl the WHOLE day! my favorite.
I like it almost as much as the purple one
Jen from AR
I ran out of my volume stylist in the purple tube, so I purchased this mascara. I like it a lot, but it just isnt as good as the original volume stylist.
Great mascara! No raccoon eyes!!

Lois from AZ
Does a great job, looks great, and very well priced. I've started to use other Essence products, too.
Cece from Minnesota
It's my favorite mascara!!!!
Steph from Illinois
I have to wipe so much off before using
K from Ohio
The brush gets very overly saturated, you have to wipe some off before you go straight on the lashes. Gets clumpy quickly too. I don't use this when I'm really putting in effort with my makeup.
Lona from WEST VIRGINIA
I have 3 different essence mascara n they burn my eyes
Nikki from Denver
Great product for great price
Favorite essence mascara
JJ from WA
I have tried other essence mascara but this is my favorite out of them, it thickens and lengthens
K from MS
Love this mascara! Fantastic curl, no need for eyelash curler, BLACK color is intense, all day wear, no flaking, it really is the best I've used of drugstore brands to higher end brands. Lasts through my daily cat nap amazingly well. The only downside to it is that it's a little more difficult to remove than most mascaras but it is not as difficult as waterproof, it's somewhere in between, but I'll take it since I don't have any flaking through the day.
