I needed a good defining mascara and this is it. This works well when you want simple definition but not too much of anything. I really love it, as it feels light, doesn't flake, it lasts all day, without hurting my sensitive eyes. It depends what you are looking for; if you want volume or length, they have one that caters to that too.
With this mascara, it is really a thing of "you get what you pay for".
I think I got this for $2.99. Crazy cheap. But it is also not the greatest. I put it on over like, three others, and it's fine. But by itself? Yikes!! Clumpy, goopy, messy!
However, it's really awesome for lower lashes!!!!! The brush is little so it works great. I'd recommend it for a bottom lash mascara. Not messy on the lowers.
Price is good, obviously!!
Packaging is find as well. Just a regular mascara tube!
AND Essence doesn't test on animals :)
I have the water proof version if this I like it but I'm not in love with it because it doesn't hold a curl but stay when I went to my horse show
I used it first time and its really very good.
This is an unfortunate miss from Essence, which normally makes pretty good drugstore mascaras. It seems they've discontinued the "Multi-Action Mascara" in the black and pink tube and replaced it with this, and it is not nearly as good. When you first open it, the formula is too wet- definitely just like black water for your lashes. Any emphasis it gives your eyes is simply from darkening. After the tube dried out a little, I got better results for a few weeks by layering it up to about three coats, and it finally looked like there was some length and volume. But then it quickly got too dry to use and started flaking when I layered it, even though I wasn't waiting for it to dry between coats.
Also- it lasts very poorly and you may find yourself getting raccoon eyes. And it irons out a curl unlike any mascara I've tried before. Not impressed.
The waterproof version is even worse- way too wet, clumps your lashes together in big wet globs so you have to comb them through again and again and AGAIN... not to mention not actually being waterproof at all.
I have bought this mascara because of the price. It is cheap and pretty good. But compared to my maybelline one(the purple one,false lashes or sth like that) , it's far behind.I like the way my lashes look after I have apllied it ,but i can't even touch them afterwards. It wears off really fast. Once again, I see it's better to spend a little more money on this kind of products in order to have the quality desired. Buy again? No...
No where near as fabulous as my favourite Essence mascara which is" I Love Extreme. ' Adds length but does not add volume. If you want spidery black, go for this.
This mascara wasn't the best.
cheap yes and i found like it did make my eyelashes more noticeable, i think its not good at volume/lengthening like other mascaras are, but for a natural kind of look its okay.
a problem i did encounter though was when applying it would constantly smudge when i blinked, and this continued to happen after 15 minutes of application.
for only purchasing this 3 dollars it isn't too bad, though i wouldn't recommend it,
Great mascara, I really like this! All Eyes On Me is my first Essence mascara & I'm really impressed. I see a lot of negative reviews here, so before I get started I want to mention that I always use lash primer with any mascara and maybe that's what made the difference between me and the reviewers who did not like it. Because I thought it was awesome!
This mascara made my lashes super-crazy-long & fluttery (although I would have liked a teensy bit more volume), beautifully separated too, the overall effect was just gorgeous. And I like how the wand comes out nice & clean without excess product on it, very smooth & clump-free application. No flaking or smudging (but that could have been because of my lash primer). Really good mascara for only a couple of dollars- fantastic!
Would definitely buy again :)
- Cheap (retails at AU $3.50 - unheard of in Australia!)
- Decent volume and length
- Portable and cute packaging
- Doesn't make my lashes clump together
- Does not hold a curl despite being waterproof. After curling my lashes, the wet formula of this mascara makes my lashes immediately drop down
- Smudges under my eyes after an hour
Repurchase? No - even though I am a big fan of essence's long lasting eye pencils.
