Most Helpful Positive Review I NEED TO STOCK UP
This was my first time trying this brand I've been hearing a lot of them recently and decided to pick them up. Best decision I've made! With just one coat my eyelashes were long.

I love finding new mascaras. It's exciting to find great, cheap product! I got this because I've heard about it on YouTube. I'll never use this again. When I first applied, I applied over another mascara. That evening I had awful raccoon eyes! Like never before been that bad. So I blamed it on layering 2 different mascaras. So then yesterday I applied it alone. After just a couple hours (if that), not only did it rub onto my under eye, making them look like black eyes, but it would 'chunk' up & get in my eyes. Extremely irritating and uncomfortable to say the least. I couldn't wait to take this off as soon as I got home from work. I took my (go to/never fail/always works) remover & used a cotton round to get as much off as possible, I then used a qtip to get it off of my inner rims. Got in the shower, washed and exfoliated. After my shower, I had black mascara under my eyes again!! I thought "where is this coming from!" But removed it again with a cotton round with remover on it. I then proceeded to continue with my nightly skincare but I kept getting chunks in my eyes, making them water like crazy. I have no idea where the product was coming from because I removed it twice at that point. Some of them were so big & had blunt edges that really hurt my eyes. So this is a smudger on me & more importantly, I can't handle when something is getting into my eyes all day. Ruined my other makeup from my eyes watering constantly. Eyes were irritated at all. Even when I first applied, this didn't do anything 'wow' worthy. Just soooo not worth it in my opinion.

I've been on the hunt for a good drugstore priced mascara. I wear makeup a lot these days, even if it's just something liner and mascara- and for a while used free samples of the Clinique High Impact one which I loved the lengthening and separating effect of but not the price tag (I'm a sucker for cheap makeup). I tried the green lash princess and like it, but it can clump up a bit before my lashes get to the length I want, and the other day I was watching a Tati video where she recommended this one. I had some Christmas presents to buy and bought this on a whim as well GREAT DECISION. This is really pretty, lengthening and separating, and hasn't flaked or transferred on me and I have pretty watery eyes. I used to exclusively wear waterproof mascara but it was too much of a hassle to remove every day so I ventured out 😂. Moral of the story this is a really great product. Why it's not a 5 star for me is the shade, I noticed it's not as black as my other mascaras, including the green Lash Princess. Because of that I normally add a tiny bit of the other one for the color, but would 100% only ever use this if it were darker.

I've used a lot of mascaras and love this one because it really adds fullness/thickness to lashes. One coat is all you need! I also love the brush/wand because it's not so fat and bulky like others. Easy to get on the roots of lashes. Excellent!

I use to buy Better Than Sex but I love this way more! less expensive and works just as good. Definitely recommend.
Miranda from ca
To be around $5 this was REALLY good. I have only worn it a few times, but it is great for the price.
ltmi from MI
I'm super happy with this mascara. It doesn't flake or run. It stays on all day without weighing down lashes. Sounds like some reviewers got a bad batch.
Ugh so so good
Deedee from MD
I've repurchased this a few times bc it's affordable and just really good. I tried the lash princess that everyone loves but that was was too goopy and took forever to dry. But this one is perfect bc it has enough wiggle room to get your lashes placed how you want and stays all way when I work and sweat at work
Where has this been...

OMG I am in love ❤️ Better than anything else I have in my collection. I will be buying it in bulk.

Not the best essence
Kc from Ohio
Least favorite essence product purchased. I love the essence fake lash mascara , this one is not good though. Very dry didn't even adhere to lashes at all. I'll stick with the fake lash mascara.
Tatooedgrammy from GA
I have hardly any length or volume with my natural eyelashes. This is the BEST lengthening mascara I have ever used. The only thing I don't like is that it smudges under the lower lashes even after it's dry. Not a problem, I use a different mascara that doesn't on my lower lashes
It's pretty good for the low price it's at ❤️

capricornlady from Indiana
This one is my favorite Essence mascara( I have several) but I'll keep buying this one! It does clump some so I just use my lash separator comb and then their beautiful lashes!
Impressive for the price!
Kaysee from MT
The first day I used this mascara, my husband randomly looked over at me and said your eyes are so beautiful! It was a nice compliment and apparently the difference between this mascara and the more expensive one I was using was noticeable. I'll be buying this again for sure!
Would buy again
Emma from Denton, TX
It's a little bit clunky, but for the price the brush is great and it lasts all day. Would definitely recommend and would buy again!
It's definitely mascara...

I was so excited to try this mascara because of the good reviews and the price but I was disappointed.
While it does lengthen A LITTLE BIT, my lashes were thick clumpy after one coat. Doesn't even give you a voluminous effect as advertised. I wouldn't recommend this if you have short lashes or if you want to go for that falsies look as this mascara doesn't define the lashes very well. I don't know if it's the way I applied it, but it took too long to dry and made a mess in my brow bone.
It feels thick and you can definitely notice when taking it off, I had to go over with a cotton pad multiple times.
I will purchase this product again!

Adds volume without clumps. Thicker looking lashes.

Amazing for every day 👍🏻😍
Yaneli from Laredo texas
I like the formula and everything but the problem is the brush it makes your eyelashes all clumpy and ugly I used a different wand and it was not clumpy and mad my eyelashes long
Best product ever!! Definitely buy it again and again

Best product EVER!!!
Becca from Surprise, AZ
I have used the Lash Princess line for a couple years. I decided to pick this up, because why not try something new? I already have dark lashes naturally, so I'm not sure about the color, but it does make my lashes look more lifted and a bit longer
VG from CA
I bought this because one of my favorite beauty gurus raves about it. I love the packaging but it was just an average product for me. I still use it but it's not my favorite. It just didn't do much for my lashes.
You need this mascara!
jhan from Boston, MA
This mascara is a 10/10. I love the thin wand since I have long lashes already and bigger wands clump my lashes together. It gives me length and separates my lashes.
It's just average mascara
PJ from Kentucky
I thought it would make my lashes look longer but once again I was disappointed. More money down the drain 🥺
I would buy this product again
Proff LD from Ohio
This product does what it says. It stays on without flaking or ending up under my eyes. But it does wash off at the end of the day, which I like. Waterproof mascara can be too harsh at times. This mascara is not waterproof but has staying power.
