Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara Review



Greetings to all those who lust long lashes!!!

Essence Cosmetics in the US is mostly available only in Ulta stores or online and on my last trip to Ulta, I finally decided to give this brand a try, even though they are on display in some obscure corner and are pretty much neglected. I was pleasantly surprised to find a whole bunch of mascaras for various dramatic effects and since I recently purchased a lengthening one from NYC, I purchased the curling one from Essence.

Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

Product Description:
Curly lashes! The large, curved fiber brush offers maximum volume, a gorgeous curl and thickens your lashes while the black texture ensures an intensive look, ophthalmologically tested.


My Experience with Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara:

For quite some time, I have been looking for a good drugstore mascara and I kind of had my mind set on L’Oreal Volumizing mascara, but then since I came across this one for just $3.99, I decided to try my first Essence product and see how it works on me.’

I had low hopes with this product and without opening its seal, I decided to see its reviews online (because I was inclined towards returning it and getting a better reviewed product). But I was pleasantly surprised to find good reviews about this product and most beauty bloggers claimed that this is an awesome product and even better than most high-end mascaras.

Cylindrical tube with neon green cap to hold the wand. The tube is generous in length and girth; good amount of product for money paid. The brush is a bit bigger and longer than most mascaras would have and is a little difficult to work with, but I guess, it is required to impart that volume to the lashes.


It’s not very liquidy or wet, but is rather dry; however, it does not create clumpy lashes and hence has perfect consistency.

One coat gives an instant lift and volume to the lash and is enough for a day look. For a more dramatic look, one can go for two or three coats and they would be enough to give an appearance of false lashes.

It stays on for the entire day except for a little bit of fall out or transfer of product from lower lashes on to the under eye skin but that is minimal and barely noticeable. The only drawback is that it’s not water proof, so all those who cry a lot or love to dance in rain, do not pick it up, otherwise one is good to go. Don’t blame it for not being water proof since it does not claim to be one.
