Essence Get Big! Lashes Volume Boost Waterproof Mascara Review

Hey everyone...
Happy Weekend and Hope you have a great one. Make up is an essential part of my life although I am not obsessed with it. But I agree that it makes you look good and presentable especially when you are out at work or for a social gathering. I only understood the importance of eye make up until sometime back. They say the eyes of a woman are a window to her soul hence for me eye make up is very important as they make them look pretty and alive.Today I shall be reviewing  Essence get Big Lashes mascara. Read on to know more about this brand and the product...



Price: Rs. 299/- I got it on a discount for Rs.260/-

Quantity: 12ml and you can buy it from here
It is also easily available over the counter easily in Delhi and Mumbai.







Product Description:
volume, volume, volume! the get BIG! lashes volume boost mascara offers added density and plenty of fill with each application for a spectacular look. the fibers of the football-like mega brush even reach the tiniest lashes and cover each individual lash without causing them to stick or feel heavy. the easy application ensures a breathtaking look in an instant! opthalmologically tested.



Ingredients:
AQUA (WATER), CERA ALBA (BEESWAX), NYLON-12, CANDELILLA (EUPHORBIA CERIFERA) WAX, GLYCERYL STEARATE, STEARIC ACID, DECYL OLIVATE, HYDROGENATED STEARYL OLIVE ESTERS, CARNAUBA (COPERNICIA CERIFERA) WAX, PVP, AMINOMETHYL PROPANOL, HYDROXYETHYLCELLULOSE, POTASSIUM SORBATE, POLYQUATERNIUM-10, ALLANTOIN, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, TETRASODIUM EDTA, TBHQ, PHENOXYETHANOL, CI 77499 (IRON OXIDES).




The mascara comes in a chubby and fat tube with all the information printed on the tube. The Ingredients were not mentioned on the tube but I had to google the information for the same. Unlike other mascaras since it has a flat bottom it can stand on its own on your vanity ;) I find that cool.. Lol.. The mascara is travel friendly and definitely can be carried around in your purse.



I had hauled this mascara few months back but never got a chance to talk about it. So I had high hopes from this mascara as I had only one mascara and I am still loving it , that is the Simply Pretty one from Avon you can check it out here. The mascara's wand is very interesting and chubby hence it picks up a lot of product on it especially the tip. The first time I used it I never realized the same but then I understood that you need to get rid of the excess before applying. Ok yes waterproof it is and it definitely builds volume and lifts the lashes instantly too  but as I said you need to be careful with the wand. The first coat goes well but more than one coat it has a tendency to clump on the lashes especially if you do not know how to use it. Overall the mascara is good but then who like clumping right? Hence I would not repurchase it again.

The Good:
Easily available even online.
Affordable.
Attractive packaging.
Travel friendly.
Definitely builds volume.
Waterproof formula.
Long lasting.
Cruelty free brand.

The not so Good:
Availability may still be a problem for some.
Starts clumping on the second coat itself especially if you do not get rid of the excess on the wand.
The wand picks up too much of product.

Rating: 2.8/5

Essence Big Fat Lashes Mascara definitely biulds up volume on your lashes but then clumps which I hate because then I have to use a lash comb to get rid of it. I would not recommend this product as there are many other decent options available in the market.

I hope this review was informative and useful. Please leave a comment below with your thoughts and new visitors may leave their blog links for me to check out.

Until next time.. Ciao.. Happy Weekend xoxo

  3. I definitely love volume and sure, just sparks up our eyes. And usually, I go for double coat. Affordable is good but the clumping, something I should consider first.

  18. OMGOSH!! NATS!!! WHY AM I SEEING THIS BRAND EVERYWHERE!!! Hahahaha...seriously, whyyyyy! Everyone is suddenly talking and reviewing about their collections etc. Am I missing out on something? HAVE i MISSED THE MEMO? :( :( I feel so out of touch!! ANYWAYYY...(*sobs*), this mascara does seem to coagulate, aye? I mean, it does show a prominent diff, but the lumping is there as well. And I loved how your review was so even-handed!! <3 This is why I adore you, dear!! <3
