Hi guys! I mentioned the Essence Lash Princess False Effect Mascara in my January Favourites, and as promised, I’m ready to give you my full review! Essence is a brand that I am usually impressed by, their prices are fantastic and their products are usually of great quality. After enjoying the last mascara that I tried from them and seeing the False Lash Effect Mascara mentioned in a Rachhloves video on YouTube, I knew I had to give it a try.
First off, the mascara wand has a bristle brush and it is quite average in size. I find the formula to be quite nice, it isn’t too dry or too wet so it is easy to apply. While I wouldn’t say my lashes look false any any means, my lashes do look thicker and a touch longer. If my lashes look at all clumpy in my photos, that is unfortunately just the way my lashes behave sometimes. In person, this mascara doesn’t look clumpy at all.
I haven’t had any issues with flaking or smudging during the month or two that I have been using this mascara. The only time I have experienced this is if I’ve aggressively rubbed my eyes (it happens!). The Essence Lash Princess False Effect Mascara looks the same at night when I take it off as it did when I apply it in the morning. It is quite reasonable to remove, a little Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water does the trick (I use the waterproof version).
Overall, I’m impressed! Though I’ll likely try another mascara next, I would repurchase this in the future.
