- Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

This is the first post of my Beauty Product Review Series. I start with a reasonably priced item the Essence's Lash Princess Volume Mascara.

Product Promises according to Essence`s Homepage: The lash princess mascara with a specially shaped cobra-head wand covers each individual lash to create dramatic volume and a gorgeous, sweeping look; for intensive fluttering lashes.
First Impression/ Packaging: I received a full sized sample of this mascara with my monthly InStyle subscription. At first sight, I wasn`t intrigued. I don`t like the packaging, which should represent an evening gown, at all. For me, the packaging cheapens the product and wouldn`t seduce me to buy it.
Application/Result: The wand is slightly curved (“cobra shaped”), medium- sized, deposits just the right amount of product and with just one coat it covers all lashes, lifts them, and creates great volume. You can also  layer the product to intensify the effect without getting clumpy, heavy lashes.

And the icing on the cake is the really affordable price. I have repurchased this product several times for myself and to use on my clients. 

Verdict: BUY!!! For me, this product is a clear case of “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. The only cons are the packaging and there is no waterproof formula available.
