I already have a new mascara which I really like,giordani gold incredible length,but when I saw this essence mascara in an online sale for just 2.5$ I didn't hesitate to order it.I've read many positive reviews about it in different forums,so I couldn't wait to try it"Get big lashes volume curl mascara"is a very temting name for me.I have average lashes but I love very big,dramatic ones,and my biggest problem with my lashes is that they're straight;so I have to use eyelash curler.Yesterday I recieved my essence mascara.I was very pleased to see it's brush as I like mascaras with thick brushes.it's not too thick to be difficult to use,just the right size.I hate mascars with thin,plastic brushesAs usuall I curled my lashes,then started to test my new mascara.I was afraid to see it's wet texture.I can't get along well with wet mascaras and I prefer more creamy ones.wet ones make my lashes ddifult to hold curl,even if I use my eyelash curler ten times more than usual! But strangely this didn't happen with essence GBLVC!it doesn't straighten my lashes as much as I was afraid.maybe it's curved brush helps my lashes stay curled.and it doesn't stay wet on lashes for a long timeI can already say that it's a good mascara with a single test.better than some high ends.it makes my lashes look longer and more volumized.but I have had better ones in this field.it doesn't seprate my lashes and unfortunately it's a bit clumpy.it did't flake in four hours that it was on my eye lashes ,it doesn't irritate my eyes(well I don't have sensitive eyes,it rarely happens that cosmetics iriritate me).it was not too difficult to remove.I removed it with two phase eye makeup remover so I don't know wheter it's easy to remove just by washing or not.but it doesn't seem to be very easy to removeAlthough it's a good mascara,it's not as good as what I imagined when I read all those positive reviews.I want dramatic look and thick lashes from my mascara but I also want my eyelashes to look full.and this isn't possible with something that sticks my lashes together. if you have already good lashes you will probably love it.for me it's 14 out of 20.It was very very cheap so I won't consider it an unsuccessful purchase but I won't buy it againAlso I won't give up on it and will definitely use it and I will recommend it to others.I like how it makes lashes bold and thick and very black.it's only problem is that it makes lashes stick together and coats lashes with more than enough productI will try wearing one coat of this one with one coat of giordani gold incredible length to see how much it improves.⭐⭐⭐Edit:I removed a star.I thought this doesn't show it's full potensial on my not very good lashes but today I saw it on my sister in law's lashes.she has long,curled lashes and gets along well with most mascaras but she was not happy with this one because it made her lashes stick together so her full lashes didn't look full anymoreBut I didn't give up on it.I figured out a way to make the best out of it.I wear one coat of oriflame hypnotic depth or instant extension or any other mascara that seprates lashes and gives them length,then I wear one coat of my essence GBLVC,and then seprate my lashes with an eyelash comb,result is much better.a 17/20 but the negative point is that it's difficult to comb wet lashes without making your eye round skin black.and it's impossible to comb when it's dried

New love! This is even better than Catrice's mascara. I get up really early cuz of work (damn) so I'm always in a rush to get my mascara done, and this is soooo wonderful. 2 coats, nice long lashes with curls that last the entire day. Comes off really easily too, with biore' jelly makeup remover.

Great mascara. I personally like this over the 'lash princess' mascara in the line.
long full curled lashes in 2 coats :)
Just a tip! Wipe the excess with a tissue prior to use for best application.
Give it a try! Great product and super cheap.
Will continue to repurchase.

imagine my surprise when I went to Target and saw they had added not only Milani, but Essence, a brand that has popped up in my periphery lately, but I had never seen in the wild.
I love this weird comic packaging (I love any mascara packaging that isn't black because then I can FIND IT), and I just purchased it on a whim because it was 3.99 and said it could do all the things. I have naturally quite long lashes, but I always want better volume and they don't hold curl well. I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by this! if you work and build it you can definitely get a doll eye effect. the formula is super wet, which I'm not normally into because usually I find when it dries out a little with most other wet formulas (L'Oreal) is when it's best. but this stuff is working great, and even though the brush is huge I don't get it all over myself. yet. my only issue with the packaging on this brand is that none of the Essence products have any type of seal. so I got the mascara tube farthest back, but you can't guarantee it has never been exposed to air or fingers.

I bought this on a whim because I wanted to try a cheap new mascara- seriously, the price is so good. It holds a curl well, doesn't sting my eyes, and does well at separating/not clumping my lashes. It flakes very little throughout the day but after long-wear (talking like 10 hours) it really starts to flake. I do like that it lasts all day at work though. I think I would repurchase this when I don't feel like going on the hunt for a new mascara. I think the price is worth it, and it's not the worst mascara I've tried.

This is the best mascara I have ever used. And if you live in Australia, you won't even spend $10 on it. It's not too clumpy, it lengthens lashes for miles, and it builds well. I've been asked multiple times if I'm wearing fake lashes when I have this on (which is every day). Bought it on a whim to keep in the bag for top ups, and have been using it daily for more than 2yrs.

I am on my second tube and really like this. I do use Shiseido eyelash primer however under almost all my mascaras. This is a wet formula with a giant brush so I always remove the amount on the tip on a tissue paper. If not using a primer you should wipe the brush as well to avoid clumping. With the primer it does separate the lashes, fan them out, and does not look clumpy. I find it both lengthening and thickening.If you get any on your inner lids, it does not sting or irritate the eyeball or lids. It is very black and does not flake. Once it's about 3 months old, which is the time to replace, it may flake a tiny bit due to drying. It is better than many a HE product, and comes off easier than say Diorshow.

Amazing. I don't even have to curl my lashes when I use this, it does it for me, and makes them super long without clumping up into spiders legs.

I hate to give this a low rating, but this was horrible on me. It flaked all over, smudged & my lashes didn't stay curled at all. Just a dud for me.

It's my HG mascara. Fans out lashes like no other. Not good at separating, but I really like "been swimming, wet lashes" look, as long as it doesn't go thick at the tips and this one doesn't. Tips stay thin and natural looking. It does smudge a bit in the heat, but easy to wipe off. And only mascaras that don't smudge on me are tubing (they flake instead, yeah... ). Might not be absolute perfect, but the best I've tried for the natural, long, fanned out lash look.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
