Mascara is my life! Mascara is the one makeup item I can’t go without, even if I had no makeup on – I would always make sure I at least left the house with mascara on my lashes. Essence mascaras are not new to me, I always find myself purchasing many of their different mascaras they offer. My most recent Essence mascara is the Essence Volume Stylist 18h Lash Extension Mascara.
Essence says; “The diamond shape of the brush contains lengthening fibers to create long, full lashes.”
Like with all brands you will find hits and misses, Essence is no different. Most of their mascaras are really good, they are decent for how affordable it is.
The Essence Volume Stylist 18h Lash Extension Mascara comes in this gorgeous purple and black packaged tube. The want is long and thin – the bristles are also quite short. One thing I noticed is that this mascara definitely doesn’t pick up too much product when I take it out of the tube, unlike the Essence Instant Volume Boost Mascara, which I honestly didn’t like that much. This mascara does not smudge as much as the other and I can actually notice that this Essence Volume Stylist Mascara does make my lashes appear longer.
Two coats of mascara are all I need, although I haven’t tested it a full 18h as Essence claims it to last that long. I find that it did last me all day without any flaking. My lashes do look fuller and longer which is definitely what I am looking for. I would definitely recommend The Essence Volume Stylist 18h Lash Extension Mascara if you are looking for a budget-friendly alternative. For every day where this is a good mascara to have in your collection. I am really impressed with this affordable mascara.
