I have never been one that demands too much from a mascara. My lashes are pretty long, and most of the time the only thing I'm looking for is some lengthening and definition. I don't care for an...

I bought this mascara because I like Essence's mascaras. That it promises volume and curl and hold, with microstyling waxes, it got my attention. I especially want some curl because I'm usually too...

Its always exciting to try a new mascara, and this one was about 30 NOK, so a cheap thrill this time. I have never tried Essence mascaras before. The tube is relatively big and has a nice enough...

I like the mass/formula of this very much and the package is nice. But the wand ruins it! Or it would, if I didn't have come up with the idea to use a separate wand with this, a curved...

Nothing too exciting here. It DOES at least coat my lashes and provide a bit of curl, but not as much volume as I'd like. I wouldn't say it lasts 18 hours. The good news is it doesn't smudge or...

this gives a quite dramatic look, BUT it smears and smudges horribly, bits of it fall around the face at random times so you simply cannot keep your face clear from it. and to make things eve...

Let's start with the pros, since they're fewer: it lasts A LOT and it's very cheap. No really, although it says 18h hold, the first time I tried it I was at a programming marathon and got to wear...

This mascara really works for me. It volumizes, lengthens, and holds a curl (admittedly, my lashes don't give me too much grief in that department). The effect is definitely far from natural,...

The worst mascara I’ve used but maybe that’s just me because I have straight and short Asian lashes. The texture is too creamy and you can dispose too much products in one go, which makes my lashes...

This was not great at holding a curl ironically. It was a bit thickening and lengthening but tended to make my lashes a bit spiky looking
