There are so many cosmetic brands coming in the Philippines. One of which is Essence, when I visited their kiosk in SM Megamall I was surprised to see variety of cosmetics and nail polishes in such affordable price.
If you will remember my haul you will see that I purchased their concealer and mascara. Today we will talk about their mascara.
It comes as it is, no box and all. An ordinary black mascara tube, a jumbo should I say.
The name/logo is laser printed in front while the description/instruction is on the other side.
The wand looks like this,
The full nylon wand is perfect for building the lashes’ volume.
Here’s what it looks like on my lashes,
It had thicken my lashes naturally. (One coat only)
The Thumbs Up
- Affordable Price
- Dries Quickly
- No clumping and spider lashes
- Looks natural
- feels very light
The Thumbs Down
- The smell – It smells like ash or burnt paper
- Apply eyeliner on the upper lash line to polish the (natural) look. It will look messy without it.
Overall, this mascara is perfect for everyday use. It doesn’t give you an exaggerated lashes when applied which I like. I am just a little concern about the smell, I hope they will reformulate it but it’s not a big deal. It is just me. haha
