At first I was a bit skeptical about this mascara due to the extremely low price. However, I was completely blown away by how beautifully it separates the lashes and makes them look gorgeous and flirty. I wouldn't say it has a complete falsh lash effect, but it does make the length of your lashes stand out - which is exactly what I was looking for. As I have very oily skin, I did notice some smudging at the end of the day, but that is normal for me. I will definitely buy this again because you can achieve such a great look without breaking the bank!

I love my high end products, but if I find a low priced product that does a better job, then I am one happy lady. This is one such product. Of all the budget brands, Essence is the one that is consistently good. This mascara is one of those very wet mascaras that takes a bit of finesse to apply, but once you get used to them, the results are incredible. One layer gets you a nice result, but if you apply two or three layers you get seriously thick, dark lashes. The tube is divine too. You need a light hand to apply this. The wand captures a lot of product and if you use a heavy hand, you are going to get nothing but clumps. I suggest lightly swiping side to side and building up the layers slowly without re dipping the brush. What you get on the brush initially is plenty. Love this product. Will definitely repurchase!

Warning: this mascara may ruin you for all others. It is gorgeous, but only if you like thick lashes with one or two swipes, and almost a teeny bit more on the side of "falsies" without looking extremely natural. It is 'natural enough' to wear to work in a business environment, and I am very conservative in my work appearance, for the most part. It wears well, and doesn't smudge or flake. It doesn't give that uber-over-the-top, blacker than average black that the top, high-end mascaras give (e.g.: YSL, IT Cosmetics, Benefit Rollerlash or the new one from TheBalm), but it is as lovely as you can get for non, high-end, and even rivals some of the high-end (like a certain over-pumped one from a favorite brand of mine, Too Faced). I think I pay $2.99 or $3.99 for a tube, so it is hard to believe that it is so good. Try it, and you'll quickly see what I mean. I only bought it because my boyfriend was with me and he thought the packaging was cute (I had him pick out my makeup for fun). I didn't take the mascara seriously at first before buying because the packaging was too cute and the price was so low. Wow! I cant stop using it and it has already been a year. I have a collection of high-end samples from the past few months, and they are all good, but this is honestly my "go to" favorite.

My very first impression of this mascara is that it is truly amazing. The price is probably the lowest for any eye-safe functioning mascara that I can think of and for the price the packaging is so cute too. If the material of the packaging was slightly different and in a world where no one knew about the brand Essence from before, you could assume that this is a high-end mascara.

I've gone on by believing that I need to use another almost 30 euros on my Benefit Roller Lash mascara and upon trying this 4 euro mascara I've concluded that I am so happy I bought this one. I feel like mascaras are such a personal thing and honestly work different for anyone and I feel like both, with a whopping 20 euros of difference in price, each work just as well for me. I feel like the Lash Princess has not irritated my eyes in the slightest which for me lately has happened with other mascaras.

I will return to this review after gaining more experience with the product, but as of now, I feel like it does the job. My lashes look black, curled, separated (and surprisingly they did not clump at all) and the mascara has not transferred or flaked in a bad-looking way, anyway. It has also held the curl for a very good amount of time. Then again, I could be a lucky one with my lashes and a lot also depends on the way you apply your mascara and the climate you live in and also how many coats you prefer to apply. I usually apply one to two coats, so I'm not the best one to say on how it layers.

If you're contemplating a purchase, I say do it. The pricing is amazing and if your lashes are in a good condition and all, I do not really see a reason to pay much more for a mascara.

Hands down best mascara of all time
Seriously so black and lengthing and after two coats creates a lot of volume and Drama
I usually never repurchase mascaras but I will be buying another.

The packaging is really cute and unique with rubberized grip. The wand is a good length and I have owned this mascara for a couple months and it is still as fresh as the first day I purchased it. Would highly recommend

I prefer this mascara to my Benefit theyre real, voluminous loreal and Too faced better than sex

This is a great product, with some caveats:
1) It does give volume and length. However, it has a wetter formula that takes a while to set and you can't comb out clumps without it flaking and losing that volume.

2) You have to let the product dry out for a while (open it once or twice a day for two weeks or so) before it really starts doing what it claims without extreme clumping

3) Not as black as some higher-end mascaras

I have longer lashes that tend to clump together when I apply mascara, so this was not the mascara for me. It does what it says it does: it adds length and volume in spades. I loved the shape of the brush. It's great for a "one and done" application. It's just not for me.

amazing! truly!! This is a wonderful mascara, I wish they made it in brown but that's my only tiny drawback. I love this more than lancome's hypnose (which flakes, barely holds and just clumps w spidery lashes). I find it very comparable to lancomes doll eyes (my HG) and if I use it with the doll eyes wand, its virtually identical except the smell. For the price this is phenomenal, doesn't flake, is blacker than black, has tonnes of product and is really easy to use. It's buildable, lengthens and volumises as well as giving sufficient separation to avoid spidery lashes. Amazing.

I can understand why some people don't like this mascara, it's very wet and if you're not careful it can cause your lashes to stick together. I fix that by combing them through, or just using the tip of the wand to separate my lashes and fan them out. But with that disclaimer out of the way, I can say this is the absolute best mascara I have ever used for any price. My old HG was Benefit's They're Real, but essence kicks Benefit's ass on this one. My own lashes are quite long and have some curl, and this turns them into the most incredibly exaggerated lashes I've ever seen. I place a lot of emphasis on my eyes so a product like this that can deliver in two coats what other mascaras might in five is such a lifesaver. It lasts all day with no touch ups, and my lashes hold a dramatic curl even if I don't use a curler. I can't see myself ever buying another type of mascara again. Be really careful applying this to your bottom lashes because it can smudge on the lashline but hell, for four euro just buy a different cheap mascara and use that for your bottom lashes! I'd recommend this to anyone except for people who prefer a natural look, or for anyone who can't take any sort of clumping whatsoever- it's not a clumpy mascara but it is volumizing and I know some people don't like that. A million stars out of ten!

This is without a doubt my second favorite inexpensive mascara (my most favorite is Catrice's Glam&Doll dark purple tube). This mascara is very cheap, it gives great lenght and volume, so you end up with amazing exaggerated lashes. It can get a little clumpy and I find it takes a little longer to dry but i don't mind for the price point. I really really love this and I would recommend to people with short lashes like me and to lucky girls with long lashes. Really good product.
