Review: Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara

Just thought I'd start by mentioning the fact that I went to the gym twice today...BOOYAAAH!! 

Helllllllllooooooooooooooooo my beautiful people! Hope all is well... I haven't done a review in a while so I thought I may as well do one on this awesome mascara I bought today....It was my day off and I was bored so I decided to browse some shops, actually no, scrap that. It was my day off and I was bored, but I already had in mind that I wanted to go and check out some mascaras, just didn't know which one. So guess where I went to; Superdrug? No. Boots? No my dear. Sephora? We don't have that here so no..actually we might, I dunno, that was the only other place I could think of. But no, I didn't go there anyway so I don't know why I just waffled on about it for a bajillion years. I went to Wilko (Wilkinsons) aka: The Narnia of everything; they have the make-up brand Essence which to my knowledge we don't have any solo stores in the Uk. 

So, onto the mascara...

I actually bought two but I don't like the other one so I might just put that in a separate review. This one is called "Lash Princess- False lash effect mascara". The product claims that the "conic" shape of the brush "provides lashes with length and dramatic volume as well as false-lash effect" 

Did it lie? No 

Your Honour I believe my subject is talking nonsense. 

Ahhh... I thought you would say such. Let me refer you to EXHIBIT A: 

No mascara: 

EXHIBIT B: After one coat of mascara: 

EXHIBIT C: After 3 coats, and then about a bajillion more

Your Honour, I rest my case.....

No but seriously, I think this is my new favourite mascara...and by "I think" I mean "I know".... Quick Pros and Cons 

Pros: Thick formula grips onto lashes 
          Actually lengthens and adds volume at the same time 
          Really good brush 
          I can't tell if I like the packaging or not, it's kind of cute and kind of cheap looking at the same time. But I like the lid so yeh. 
        Le price: This baby cost me £2.30... SAY WHAAAAAT?? Yes milady, two pounds and thirty pence, I think we all know that's a bargain. 

Cons: Not waterproof which means that panda eyes are a risk (if you plan on wearing it to the gym, or crying...don't know why you would plan to cry but whatever) 
          Too many coats leads to spider lashes 

Overall rating: 8/10 


  1. LOL :D

    i've never purchased an Essence mascara before because i've always thought that since it was so cheap, it probably does't work...
    but you've defended your case well and i have been proven wrong!

  11. The effects are really pretty and your eyes totally pop with this mascara! For that price I don't think I'd even mind that it's not waterproof. Thanks for the review!

  14. Firstly, two gym trips in a day?!! Girl, I need to reach that level of dedication. Also, really useful review! I have recently used a couple of essence lipliners, and loved them, but was dubious about the mascara - now will have to invest!
