My experience with Essence Volume Hero Mascara Power Black:
The packaging is very similar to all other mascaras. It’s an overall black packaging with a few words written in glitter. The wand is thicker than usual wands making it very sturdy. The bristles are extremely small and pointy. Such kind of bristles prevents clumping, but is not so great in curling or picking up the product from the tube.
I normally don’t prefer short bristles because, I have experience of pricking it inside my eye. I have a feeling that with this kind of bristles, they don’t carry a lot of product and feels bulky. When I apply the mascara, I feel that it slightly hurts my eyes.
The consistency of the mascara is pretty thick when compared to other mascaras. The mascara does not dry very fast and I have a spread or dots under my brows or near lower lashes. The mascara is dark black and not waterproof.
I usually apply 2 layers of mascara to my lashes. But with this, 2 is also not sufficient. I feel that the lashes neither got volume or length. Of course there is no dry flakes falling out over the day, but the slight effect it creates is almost not to be seen at the end of the day.
Coming to the removal part, I had no problems in removing it. I also found that there is not much product on the cotton pads which clearly shows that the mascara is not being transferred from the bristles to lashes.
Overall, it’s a total waste of money. I did not like the results.
