My favourite mascara (Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express) has been discontinued in Denmark, so I’m on a hunt for a new great mascara. I’ve heard a couple of beauty youtubers talk about this Essence mascara and how good it is, so I decided to try it out.
It has a bristle wand, which I prefer over a plastic one, and I do think that it makes my lashes look voluminous. However, it is very difficult to remove from the skin without ruining my eye shadow, and it transfers a lot onto both the top of my eyelids and to the skin underneath my eyes. This is a huge problem for me in general, and I’ve found very few mascara that doesn’t transfer onto my skin throughout the day. The mascara was also slightly difficult to remove with regular eye make-up remover. I had high hopes for this mascara, but overall I’m not a fan. However, that doesn’t mean that it won’t work for you.
