The volume boost where do I start.... Pros: cheap and somewhat waterproof
Cons: flakes all day long, it smudges all over me, and didn't really do anything for my lashes which are naturally curly, and the smell of the mascara is awful that's me putting it lightly. And too much products comes off the brush so you'll spend some time cleaning that off. This is the last mascara …

I was in search of a cheap, waterproof mascara and I found one that finally worked! This Essence mascara is very cheap ($3.99 / £2.50) and is in a huge tube, so you are getting a lot of product for little cost. I found this product easy to layer for volume and no clumping, although occasionally a couple of lashes may need to be combed out to avoid sticking together. This is thankfully not typical …Read more

Unfortunately this was a bust for me. I'll break down the whys below.

Pros:
- Waterproof. So waterproof and stubborn it isn't possible to take this all off without losing lashes, and even with an oil I have raccoon eyes the next day. It's a bit over the top, but if you work at a pool, sweat heavily, swim a lot, or generally need something that won't budge …

I wanted a cheap mascara for travel, and went with this one.

I find it a bit clumpy and it does run if wet. I'm not so bothered by it I want to run out and get a new one, but will find an alternative when I run out. I'd take a pass on this one, you get what you pay for.

Worst mascara I have ever used. The brush is too large. I used it under 10 times and it dried out already. Also, very hard to remove.

Heard great things about essence's lash princess false lash effect mascara, but so disappointed when it's not available for sale at where I am right now.

When I was at the drugstore, this waterproof mascara was the only one left. So not wanting to leave with an empty bag, I purchased it and did not regret! I think it's destiny.

This is absolutely comparable …

I always buy drugstore mascaras and when i heard good things about mascaras from Essence i thought i would give it a try. The mascara does give long and thick lashes however the formula is very dry and you need quite a few layers and it's lacking pigment. Even though it doesn't come off with water it somehow magically disappears from my eyes after around 6 hours - very disappointing! …Read more

I use this mascara about 2 months and I like it. Not the best mascara, but curls stays all day long.

This was... a bust.

I bought this because I've loved Essence mascaras in the past and expected this to make my lashes look fluffy and thick without smudging (unlike their regular water-based formulas).

Unfortunately...
A) It made my lashes look spidery (long and thick with one coat... but spidery as hale); and
B) When I dipped the wand back in to get more …

Don't even put yourself through this.
I bought two Essence mascaras from Ulta the other day. Tried both out for many days and they both just flaked everywhere. I want to return them, but heard that Ulta employees can get really rude about it.
I only spent $9 on two mascaras, so maybe I'll just cut my losses and throw them away.
