I was in desperate need of a new mascara. For some reason, I have been going through them so fast. Whilst walking through Dischem, I came across the Essence Instant Volume Boost Mascara. I actually haven’t tried this one before and was curious to see how it fairs against my trusty Essence Lash Princess Mascara.
I have always used the Essence Lash Princess Mascara, but I wanted to try something new from Essence. You guys know how much I love Essence, I just really respect the fact that they are continuously bringing out new collections. They are super affordable too!
Essence says: “The intensive black mascara allows maximum lash volume thanks to the volume brush. Which consists of innovative flower-shaped fibers. an application takes just ten seconds.”
Straight off the bat, I noticed that the wand is rather different than the Lash Princess Mascara from Essence. I wasn’t too sure if I was going to like it. I tried it anyway because I spent money on it and no way in hell I was going to throw it away.
It does seem to “volume boost” my lashes ever so slightly. Nothing major I would go gaga over. I didn’t like that it just picks up so much product! I always found myself having to place some of it back. Leaving so much product outside rather than inside the tube. Not sure how hygienic that is. It does clump some of your lashes too. I don’t mind the slight clumping it does give a really nice volume look to the lashes.
For an everyday mascara, this will be a lovely option. It gives you voluminous lashes and it doesn’t flake and smudge. Do I prefer this over my Essence Lash Princess Mascara? Not really, I will still be repurchasing my trusty Essence Lash Princess Mascara.
Essence Instant Volume Boost Mascara before? How did you find it?
