This week on the blog I will be talking about mascara and eyeliner, because I feel like these are the two makeup staples that no one can go without. I swap and change my beauty routine but I always have mascara and eyeliner on. When it comes to mascara my most loved go to brand has got to be Essence cosmetics, I have bought the most expensive high end mascaras and been disappointed because my Essence one is better. Here are my top three Essence mascara’s
I have repurchased the essence lash princess false lash effect mascara a good few times, I discovered it about a year ago in a press drop I got from them and from there is was just love love love!! The actual packaging of the product is fun, I really enjoy the rubber like pattern on the lid/wand handle. The brush its self goes from big to small at the tip so you do not get too much product on the smaller inner lashes, I find with big inner bristles it goes through onto the lid in the inner corner where the small lashes are. The formula is thin and long lasting and glides on perfectly. The look created is long false lash like lashes with good volume. It is a breeze to use and a bargain for around R59-99 you really cant go wrong! Go buy 5 of them cause I promise you will love it for its price. This one I can compare as a dupe to my high end Dior show mascara except some days I think the Essence formula is better but the Dior brush is a darling.
Second up is the Essence Multi-Action mascara. It took me a while before I used this one, I always check the mascara brush cause I do prefer a more fluffy fanned out brush to brush the lashes and tend to stay away from short spiky plastic brushes. That being said I am now very surprised and hooked on this mascara after trying it, I switched to using it after my Lash princess finished. This mascara does it all, It gives volume and length while perfectly separating lashes. This gives high definition and an intense wide eyed fluffy lashes look that is to die for. To compare it to a high end mascara I would say that it makes me think of the Clinique high impact but I think that is because the brush is similar.
And lastly for today I have the Essence I Heart Extreme volume mascara, waterproof. This is my go to when looking for a waterproof mascara and the brush is big and fluffy and oh so lovable. This is obviously good for anyone looking for a waterproof mascara but it also does wonders for big ultra black volume!!! like va va volume. I will probably be wearing this during labour haha but I will have to report back on how that goes.
Here are Pictures below of the different mascara’s and the effect they have, I put on one eye only so you can see the difference to my natural lashes. As you can see they all have a fantastic effect.
