Unfortunately, it does not hold the curl. For my super straight Asian lashes, thatīs the most important thing, hence the low rating.
Let me start of by saying that I love the brush of this one. It's teeny tiny and very slim so is perfect for my rather small eyes. I always get mascara on my upper lid with thicker brushes but this is perfect.
The formula is neither very dry not runny but is nice and kind of creamy. It goes on easily and doesn't clump.
This mascara is pretty good if you're looking for definition and length. It doesn't create very full lashes or gives any false lash effect but rather natural looking defined lashes. I like this kind of look for day to day so this it suits my need.
I am the kind of person who hates waterproof mascaras because how tedious it is to take it off. This doesn't run on me throught out the day but comes off easily with soap and water.
I took off one lippie because it doesn't give any noticebale volume but for everyday defined lashes-this is perfect!
It's GOOD. Excellent length & volume. Defines my lashes very well. No smudging or flaking. Just a little clumping but it's easily worked out with the tapered flexible brush. These cheapie Essence mascaras are all actually pretty impressive. I have tried I Love Extreme in both the pink and the black tubes and also All Eyes On Me. This one is my favorite of the bunch, would definitely buy it again.
I really like the brush but after a few years I felt my eyelashes a little dry ...
For the timi but I think is good enough ...
Meh for upper lashes but great for lower lashes! The slim brush makes it easy, and defines them without clumping. They look feathery and not spider-leggy. I use other mascaras for top lashes but only this one for bottom lashes.
I tried to like it because of the effect but...it flakes like crazy..I love the plastic wand and the fact that it separates my lashes perfectly but I cannot wear it..I still haven't found an Essence mascara that I like a lot..Most of them don't last on my lashes but this one especially is ALWAYS under my eyes when I return home!
I love this mascara!!! It works great for layering because it defines so beautifully. I already have long lashes, definition and volume are my priorities. This delivers on both. No flaking, no smudging, easy to remove with evoo or Vaseline. The price is awesome as well!
This mascara is a pretty wet formula, and for me it just didn't work out. It did not hold a curl at all, and my lashes dropped literally within half an hour of applying the mascara. But that could just be me, since only waterproof formulas actually hold curls for me. If this mascara could hold a curl, i'd be pretty impressed. It definitely defines and separates, is clump free, as well as add subtle day time length and volume (not a false lash effect though). Doesn't flake or smudge, so really the only thing wrong was the lack of curl hold for me.
I've been using this for a week now, and I really enjoy it. I'm convinced nearly anything by Essence is great quality and affordable! The mascara is a rich black, and it truly separates the lashes individually to provide length and definition. I recommend!
first, disclaimer. I use latisse and tint my lashes black (DIY BABIES!) and have pretty bomb lashes right now to begin with. (but don't hate me, it took work to get here!)
for my needs - a mascara that adds definition and flare but doesn't drag me in drag queen territory - this is excellent. good definition, leggy length, and an overall clean, curvy effect. no need for me to look elsewhere!
