This is a great mascara for everyday. It defines lashes nicely without clumping. It wears all day without flaking or irritating my eyes, even in heat and humidity; but still removes easily with take the Day Off cleansing balm.

The colour is pretty, a sheer pinkish white with lots of iridescent micro glitter, but the application is streaky and doesn't self-level nicely. Three coats gave sheer coverage (still VNL) that would be really lovely if it were even, but as is, is just ok.

This is a pslightly peachy pink blush. I like the colour, but it loses two lippies for being quite sheer and a pain to apply. I am NW15 and like the results when it is built up with a real techniques blush brush. The finish is natural and pretty, but I'm not sure it would show up on a less pasty skintone.

This is an interesting formula. I like the cream to powder finish and find that it applies nicely with a real techniques blush brush. The colour is a lovely warm neutral that works as a bronzer or a blush on my fair (NW15) skin. It goes on sheer - you can build it up to a pretty, natural flush but it takes a bit of doing. I took off a lippie because I wish it was a little more pigmented.

This is fine for the price. It doesn't flake or irritate my eyes and It gives me plenty of volume and length. It loses a lippie for being wetter and clumpier than I'd like. I will am intrigued about other Essence mascaras, but wont repurchase thisone.

I bought this in Fawn and it is my favourite brow product that I have used so far.

In the past I have used a couple of pencils, a matte powder eyes hadow, and a couple of other mascara-like products from the drugstore: Essence Make me Brow and Marcelle Perfect Brow. I have brown hair and pale skin (N15-ish) and my brows are reasonably full but look better with a little definition …

Not great overall. The formula is way too wet and results in spidery, stuck together lashes. It is very dark and you can get a nice dramatic look with some effort (removing excess from brush, combing through lashes after application), but it is just not worth it. It takes forever to dry; I always forget and end up with black streaks on my glasses. Will not purchase again.

I bought this blind because there was a display with a coupon at Shoppers Drug Mart and am pleasantly surprised. This mascara is easy to apply. It is not too wet and doesn't clump. It doesn't flake or irritate my eyes. The effect is dark, full, nicely defined eyelashes. I am very impressed and am likely to repurchase.

Update 12/16: Bought another tube, still like this a …

This is pretty good, but I will not repurchase.

I have this in browny brows which is a good color for my medium brown hair/n15 skin. I like the product in general; it looks pretty natural and defines/builds up my brows pretty well. My one dislike is that the brush is never evenly loaded with product when I pull it out of the tube. Almost every time I use it a weird clump of …
