I’ve been trying out two Essence Lash Princess mascaras, the False Lash Effect and the Curl & Volume, so I thought I would combine my first impressions on both mascaras in one post.
Let’s start with the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect mascara. I’ve already featured this one in a 5 favourites post, which obviously means that I like it. But here are some more details about this mascara.
It has a cone shaped bristle brush/wand which I love. It my lashes look long and voluminous, and I would definitely say that the mascara holds it’s claim of giving a false lash effect. I wore two coats on my top lashes, and I think my lashes look really good. I used a spooly to remove the mascara marks on my eyelids and underneath my eyes (there were very few though), and they was very easy to remove. I discovered very little transfer to the top of my eyelids (and only after many hours of wear), however, the older the formula gets the more it transfers (I’ve been wearing this mascara a lot since I wrote down my first impressions). I removed it with regular eye make-up remover which took a little bit of work, but nothing to bad and I don’t really care because it’s such a great mascara + it’s so affordable!
And now moving on to the Essence Lash Princess Curl & Volume mascara.
This mascara has an hourglass shaped bristle brush/wand, which is not my favourite type of mascara wand (because it’s thick at the end/tip). My lashes are naturally curled, so it’s difficult to say, if they look more curled with this mascara on (I don’t think they do). I wore two coats on my top lashes, and you need that second coat to get the volume that it claims to give, but then you definitely do get volume, and I do think my lashes look really good. I used a spooly to remove the mascara marks on my eyelids and underneath my eyes, and it was fairly easy. There was very little transfer to the top of my eyelids, though nothing major. I removed it with regular eye make-up remover, and it was fairly easy to remove (probably a little easier than the False Lash Effect mascara). My lashes looked good all day, and overall I really like this mascara, however, I think I prefer the False Lash Effect one a little bit more.
