Essence Lash Princess Mascara
So I’m gonna be totally honest. The only reason I wanted the Essence Lash Princess mascara is because of the gorgeous packaging. I’ve used Essence mascara’s before and I wasn’t really happy with the formula so I always opted for a more expensive brand. This is thee most adorable mascara design I have ever seen. Packaged in a sleek, curvy bottle with coral detail, the cap has beautiful doodles that mimic the laces of a corset that tie up into a bow at the bottom.
The mascara wand is also curvy in shape with different sized bristles and took some getting used to. If I tried to coat from the bottom of my lashes I almost always poked my eye out. I’ve found that rolling the wand over my lashes whilst pulling upwards creates the best effect and the most volume. The bristles are quite far apart, which I don’t really like. The formula is quite dry and has clumped quite a bit over time (and NO I do not pump my mascara wand) so I either have to go over my lashes with a lash separator or add some eye drops in to make the formula a bit thinner.
Two coats of the Lash Princess Mascara makes my lashes thicker and just a bit longer but it does not hold a curl the entire day. Initially I also found that it would smudge a bit after a long day, making me almost look like a panda. If I use a setting spray though that doesn’t seem to be a problem at all.
Retailing at R65 ($5), this is less than half the price than what I would normally spend on a tube of mascara. If you’re on a budget I would say the Lash Princess Mascara is a decent one to try but if you can, rather spend a bit more and get a Maybelline mascara instead. Available at Clicks, Dischem and Spree online store.
