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.

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.

I have 3 different essence mascara n they burn my eyes

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.
Nice volume but it smudged
Fidget from Ohio
I liked the brush, the volume and thickening. Slight curl. It lasted pretty good all day but twice I had smudges on my eyelids I had to wipe off, once right after application and also late in the day. I have hooded eyes but was not expecting it to transfer that much.
Wow! Very impressed
Buyer on a budget from Raleigh
I'm on a budget & couldn't keep buying my higher end makeup....I'm so thankful I found this mascara!!! I've been using Too Faced better than sex & Too Faced D*** Girl....this is way better!! Really makes my lashes look longer. I don't know about everyone else but I only put x3 layers on of mascara, the first only lightly & then the second one more of the product. My lashes don't look clumpy. I definitely recommend this to anyone!!
Love this mascara!! Makes your lashes look like extensions!

Makes your eyelashes look realistic long
After 3 uses, i went back for another!
Angela from Rhode Island
This stuff is amazing! I love it! You don't even need to use an eyelash curler! And when you do, pow! Who needs lifts and extensions when you have this!? Best ive ever used, and its super inexpensive.
Lizzy from Tulare Ca
Works well.no flakes. Great coverage and reasonable price.
Rebekah from Oklahoma City
I loved the curl that you get with this one. I would recommend it!
As long as they make this - I'll buy it!
Val from TN
This mascara beats everything else i've ever used, and I've used some dang expensive mascaras! It is jet black, lifts, fans out, stays all day. After the first tube I won't use anything else. Daytime is two coats, evening is 4 - I couldn't be happier.
I would buy this again.
Sunny from Harrisburg, PA
Doesn't clump. I haven't worn mascara in a few years because of sensitivity but this doesn't bother my eyes.
Would buy again but could be better
Ari from iowa
Good product but quality could be better
