Essence 2-in-1 Volume Mascara Review

Hello sweeties,

I recently got a lot of Essence stuff due to their cuteness as well as the way they are priced. I can surely categorize it as a brand, which is specially designed for college goers and office-going people. I was searching for their stuff and picked up the mascara too. This looked totally great and this was obviously better than the others because it is a 2-in-1 mascara and I have never tried something like that before. So, let’s see how this double benefit mascara worked for me.



Rs. 299 for 10 ml.

Product Description:

Essence 2-in-1 volume mascara helps to customize you 2 mascara looks in 1 mascara.

Look 1: Defined volume.
Look 2: Over-sized volume.

My Experience with Essence 2-in-1 Volume Mascara:

The packaging of this mascara attracted me a lot, its purple and hot pink and looks super girly and I love to have such stuff in my kitty. It is very travel friendly and the main benefit is that it helps me create two looks with the help of one mascara as there is no need to carry two different mascaras.  The quantity is really great because I am using it since the last 3 months and it still seems to have a lot of product left.  This being a drugstore brand is cheap as compared to other mascaras. It has two different caps.

Initially, when I started using it, I thought there would be two different brushes and while opening the first one, I got a wand and when I opened the second one, I thought I broke the wand and it’s inside the bottle 😛 Later on, I came to know that there is only one wand to create two looks.  In the first one, the brush is pretty thin and in the second look, there comes out a fat brush which gives out more mascara on the wand and when you pull it down, the excess mascara gets collected on the rim of the fat brush and then the thinner one has less of mascara which gives the first look.

The first one is basically designed for a day time look and looks perfect on my lashes, the way I want.  It looks very natural and gives volume, but a little less. The second look however gives extremely voluminous lashes and looks great for a dramatic night-time look. It looks very attractive; however, the only con is that it does not take time to clump up and the lashes stick together making it look weird at times.

This one is not waterproof, so in case it comes in contact with water, you will have raccoon eyes and it easily goes off with water.  The effect lasts all day long and that’s the best part. Overall, I am very happy that I discovered this one because it has double benefits.

Pros of Essence 2-in-1 Volume Mascara:

  • Affordable.
  • Looks super girly and cute.
  • Comes with double benefit, you can create a decent look for day time and voluminous look for night time.
  • The mascara lasts all day and lengthens the lashes.
  • The first look doesn’t look clumpy at all and is great for every day wear.
  • It is pretty easy to apply.

Cons of Essence 2-in-1 Volume Mascara:

  • The second look makes the lashes clumpy and makes my lashes stick to each other making it look weird.
  • Not waterproof.
  • Takes a bit of time to dry up, hence have to be careful.
  • It is not one of the best mascaras from Essence.

Will I Repurchase/Recommend Essence 2-in-1 Volume Mascara?

Yes, I will for the fact that you can get two looks with just one mascara and the looks come out good except for the second one which clumps easily. It is very cost effective and super fun to use and great for everyday wear. I am about to finish this one, so till the time I discover a new one, I am going to keep on using this and also buy one more if needed.
