Today I'm reviewing Essence Get Big Lashes! Volume Boost Waterproof mascara from the new Spring/Summer 2012 collection. I'm going to start with a little background on the brand, because you may not have heard of Essence yet if you live in the U.S... but they are HUGE in Europe! Right now, they are sold at Ulta, HEB, and Fred Meyer but the brand is expanding in North America in a big way.
Essence is a value cosmetics brand.. they offer really high quality products at incredibly low prices. Recently, Essence sent me a few products from their new collection for me to review. I was really impressed with the items I received..(apparently I'm not the only one who is impressed.. I did some light reading on the company and I found that they are the #1 value cosmetics company in the world) The quality is awesome- from the packaging to the products themselves, and you would never guess they retail for what they do! I plan to review all the products on the blog over the next few weeks, but let's get to the first one- Get Big Lashes! Waterproof Mascara.
Below is a shot of the mascara, as well as a shot of my eye before and after application.
Mascara is my absolute number one beauty product.. I never leave the house without putting it on. For some girls it is lip gloss, for others, blush, but I'm a mascara girl- you will never catch me without it! (Okay, you caught me without it in the above picture.. but you know what I mean!) This mascara definitely passes the test, and I will be stashing it in my "permanent collection".
I am really happy with my first Essence product, and can't wait to share the other ones I have with you!
Oh.. and guess what.. this mascara costs $3.49! I'm excited for this brand to expand more into the U.S, I have a feeling it will be really popular here in the coming years. Have you ever tried any of their products?
Thank you so much for reading!
All the best,
Disclosure: This product was sent to me for review. I am committed to giving you my honest and unbiased opinion, always!
