I visited the Essence counter a few weeks back and it left me awestruck. The counter is so damn cute with vibrant and poppy nail colours, cute little blushes and foundations, gorgeous looking mascaras and much more. I saw this recent launched Plump No Clump! Volume Mascara, and picked it up. Who wouldn’t fall for its claims? Scroll down to read more about this new launch.
INR 349 for 12 ml
Buildable volume and length without clumping! The NEW plump no clump volume mascara has an elastomer brush with precision bristles that reduce clumping for long, voluminous, and separated lashes. An integrated reservoir in the brush helps evenly distribute the volumizing formula from root to tip.
My Experience with Essence Plump No Clump! Volume Mascara:
I haven’t had a very good experience with Essence mascaras because most of them have worked below average and clumped badly. This mascara comes in bright and poppy coral coloured packaging with bright sea green fonts and instructions. I love how refreshing and summery the mascara looks. It is a fat bottle which can be carried easily in your hand-bag or be kept in your vanity, and it won’t take a lot of space. It comes for a very reasonable cost and Essence is without any doubt a great brand for college-goers or girls who have just entered the makeup world. The wand is thick and the bristles are sharp and detailed which helps to give that clean and perfect look.
The consistency of the mascara is moderate; it is neither too liquid nor to dry. The length of the wand is also amazing because it is just half a centimetre smaller than my lashes, which is brilliant. The upper tip of the wand is also very petite which facilitates easy application in the inner lashes. I use this directly over my lashes without curling them because curling makes them look very dramatic to me, which I would prefer only occasionally. I use two ways, one is directly stroking the lashes inside out, and second wiggling the wand for that perfect application. I have to say that it works well both the ways.
1 coat is great for natural look and 2-3 strokes give brilliant volume and lengthening effect which are great to create dramatic and catchy eyes. It gives an intense black colour to my lashes which is very much noticeable. It curls my lashes a little, only as much as I need. It actually gives a very cute dolly effect to my lashes and it totally adds to the beauty. I love bat my lashes whenever I am wearing it. Coming to the formula, it stays all day long on my lashes without causing any fallouts.
It is very lightweight, hence there is no artificial heaviness on my lashes. The formula is non-waterproof and comes off easily when you wash it with water. Coming to the main claim, clumping! It clumps only 1% which is not at all noticeable; it keeps my lashes distant without causing any clumping. There would be no clumping at all if the lashes are curled with a curling wand. Overall, I feel it is a nice, budget-friendly mascara to opt for when you are on a frugal budget.

This is the best Essence mascara I have tried so far. Totally recommended if you want a mascara for daily use. I don’t know whether I would come back to this or not because there are ample of mascaras offered by different brands.
