Rated 3.86 out of 5 stars
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 gives a thin consistency but is really good at giving curl and volume.
Cheryl from Virginia
This is the second tube I've purchased that was dried out upon purchase. Thank goodness for Ulta's return policy. Wouldn't recommend. Definitely will not repurchase.

I like it

As a professional MUA ,I've tried a lot of mascaras .Essence has the best selection and coverage especially for short and sparse lashes and really makes lashes pop .

The micro-styling waxes made my lashes look more clumpy and messy. It did curl my lashes but just made them look messy.

Listen, I've put this mascara through the wringer. I wore it during therapy, balled my eyes out, and it looked amazing still. Got into an emotional conversation with my husband, had soul-demolishing crying, & she looked perfect still. No smudging, no smearing.

Trash. I like to keep my eyelashes curled so they don't hit my glasses lenses. I start off by using a lash curler and then applied this mascara; this mascara actually made my lashes straighten out?! So I re-curled them and applied a second coat. That was clump city, population: me. I think the micro-waxes or whatever really weigh it down. The "fully loaded paddle brush" also means that you will be getting mascara on your top eyelid while you apply it. To top it off, this started flaking during my work day! Thank god this was a cheap buy. I wish this worked for me like it apparently does for others! I ordered online and it came to me as a single tube with no protective wrapping… I'm wondering if I just got a bad product, but even still the brush is horrible.

Love this! I like a thicker heavy mascara and this is it! Bonus, I had to shovel my car out in a blizzard and with all the wet blowing snow my face was drenched and my eyelashes looked great and didn't run!
Sara from MI
Love this mascara. I wasn't sure if a cheaper mascara was going to look nice, but not only does it look nice but it lasts & doesn't clump up.
Elena from Schwyz
I bought this a while ago and im glad that I've bought it.

In my opinion I didn't like it, it looked nice on my friend but for me it's a no
Tammy from Aptos
Didn't work for me. After about 5 hours the mascara started to transfer under my eye and flaked quite a bit.
Amanda from Waterford, MI
This mascara is SO clumpy and thick and impossible to put on in a thin coat. I used it twice and threw it away.

This product holds my curl really well. You really can't go wrong with any Essence mascara, but this one is my favorite. Might even be better than Lash Princess!
Courtney G. from US
I ordered 3 mascaras my last order and I'm in love! I've been asked multiple times if I'm wearing false lashes. And for the price, it can't get better than that!
Consuelo G. from US
The mascara came dried out, looked old. I was sent 2 replacements and those were both dried out as well.
Amanda C. from US
Really nice mascara , works great, and is a good price!
April E. from US
Good product. Has staying and holding power. The product seemed a little bit dry, so Im not sure how long the product will last, but the price was good and it performs well.
Angela G. from US
The brush catches every tiny lash & makes them look very full. That's great! However, I've not noticed any curl as a result of using this mascara.
Lisa T. from US
I love essence mascaras. This is my favorite fir giving me the best length and volume. I always buy 2 at a time. The price!!!! The price point and quality cannot be beat.
