The other day I was in need of a new rather cheap mascara but the one I originally wanted to get was sold out, so I found myself browsing through the shelves and I discovered the Essence The Lash Curler. I loved the packaging and it sounded interesting, so I got it. Besides Essence usually has some really great mascaras.
I’ve used it for a while now and I have to say I’m a little bit disappointed. The one thing that differs this mascara from any other mascara is that it kind of has this plastic cap over the end of the wand, which you can twist. This mascara basically lets you rotate it manually which is supposed to create a lash curling effect. Maybe it’s just me but this whole twisting and rotating thing didn’t work for me at all.
The mascara itself is pretty average. It darkens my lashes and does make them longer and more defined but I have had other mascaras that got me a better finish for the same price. It lasts pretty long and doesn’t smudge. Still I probably won’t be repurchasing this mascara.
Here are some before & after pictures:
Have you tried this one yet? What did you think?
