Don’t get this !

Sadly, this is a huge disappointment to me seeing as how I’ve raved about every other essence mascara ! This mascara promises volume but in order to see that you have to layer and layer it on some more … even then it’s not as impressive as it should be ! I love my other essence mascaras but this one is barely likeable!


I had to layer it on so much in order to see volume that when I was washing it out my entire face was messed with mascara lol and urghhh !

Absolute best

I've had this mascara since last year and it's STILL very effective. Worth every penny. Gives your lashes that voluminous look. It's absolutely amazing and i highly recommend it.

Great mascara

I don't wear mascara everyday, but I found this to be a great, effective mascara. I like the fat brush and it does not clump on my lashes.

Not bad

This mascara definitely loves to be built up it's not a one swipe type mascara. Essence provides thick mascara's but this one didn't quite impress me.

Waterprrof - Essence Get BIG! Lashes Mascara

I recently purchased the Waterproof version of the Essence Get BIG! Lashes Mascara as my usual purple packaged one was out of stock.

I figured it would have the same effect but I was slightly disappointed. Yes my lashes looked darker but they definitely didn't look as full or as "bold"

Also, i'm not really a fan of waterproof mascaras in general because I find that my lashes fall out when I wash my make-up off at the end of the day. (maybe its just me)

I'm still a die hard fan of the Essence Get BIG! Lashes Mascara but will stay clear of the waterproof version!

Effective and Long-lasting

This product does exactly what is promises to do: give volume to your eyelashes. It's super affordable and lasts long (the whole day). You can already see a big difference with just a couple of applications of this mascara. When paired with a a curling mascara, it looks as though I have false lashes. The downside is that it tends to clump and does not lengthen lashes.

Get Big Lashes

After reading all the reviews on this mascara, I thought I had definitely found a good buy. In my opinion, this mascara does in fact give volume, and little length, opposing what the other reviews say about lots of length and little volume. It is a little bit dry when being appled but not too dry. If this mascara could only lengthen my lashes a little bit more it would be perfect.

Essence Mascara

Although the name of this mascara gives it ambition, i don't find this particular brand to work very well. I have had clumps forming and it has occurred that it did not quite live up to its standards. I personally would not recommend this specific one/

Gives you big luscious lashes for a super cheap price! this mascara is great as it doesn't clump and holds the curl really well! I was also suprised how long it lasted, no touch ups!

Waterproof version

I always buy the Waterproof version of mascara's as I've heard they hold a curl better. I bought this to layer under my Holy Grail lengthening mascara for added volume and never expected much from it as I was never going to use it on its own-but boy did this mascara surprise me.

It does not clump and the brush combs through my lashes nicely. It adds volume and makes my eyes look large and doe-like. Admittedly my curl has fallen after a full night out with friends which includes dinner, a movie (or two) and general messing about, but all this does is have me go from a clean doe-eyed look, to a lived in cat-eyed look, which isn't bad at all.

Essence Bigger Lashes

I was a bit sceptical buying this product at first seeing that I've never bought mascara from this brand before, but I went with my gut feeling. I tried when I got home and was astonished with the results. I applied one coat from the start of my roots and I caught myself smiling. The first two coats gave a natural volumising effect (natural, therefore not THICK & clumpy), and if you apply more it will give a more "wild for the night" kind of look which is great! The only downside to this product would be the fact that it dries quickly in the tube (+2 months). But other than that, it is an excellent product for it's price.

Essence Get BIG! Lashes Mascara

I bought this out of curiosity (and the price was really cheap :), and was kinda disappointed. I love the big brush as it makes for better application and it really does thicken and lengthen lashes quite nicely. The let down here is that I don't like the quality of the formula. I felt that it clumped and was extremely flaky. I wear contacts so to keep getting bits of mascara in my eyes was beyond annoying, not to mention to have a constant trail of black dots on my face was irritating. Not a fan

Essence Get BIG! Lashes Mascara - Volume Boost

This is one of the best mascaras I've used! You great thick, long lashes when applied and it lasts all day! This may be a bit more flaky than other mascaras, I still find it stays full for the whole day! I put tons of coats on and it holds the curl of your lashes

After reading the reviews of this on beauty bulletin, I went out and bought this mascara. At R30, I really had nothing to lose. And I absolutely love it. I would replace every high end mascara I own with this one. The tube is huge. It will last me ages. It definitely gives you great lashes! Your lashes are long and natural looking. Although its not advertised as a mascara that gives you the false lash effect, it really does that. It does not give you an extreme amount of volume but it definitely lengthens. You need to apply a few layers before you see a difference in volume. The mascara does dry quite quickly though but I love this because I am always applying my makeup in a hurry.
Im also a sucker for cute packaging and the logo on this tube just really stands out. Love this mascara and I would repurchase it over and over again.

I love this mascara.

I have the Get BIG Lashes mascara in the blue tube. It's the same as the black one but it's waterproof as well.

In my experience, almost none of the high end mascaras out there work as they're advertised to. Being essence, i didn't expect this to work very well and actually give me 'Big lashes'. I tried it anyway and it wasn't all that bad. Like Jenna said, it's useful for everyday wear.

Essence has got to have one of the best array of ranges for mascara.
I have naturally shortish eyelashes but this "BIG LASH" product is great for everyday use and add an extra layer for going out on the town and "boom" you have long and lush lashes.

This is by far my fave mascara out of the lot, unfortunately it doesn't last super long - so a new one every 1.5-2 months is a good idea.

Being the Super freeby bunny and fanatic that I am, could'nt wait to get my hands on the review goodies, so rushed off to the post office as soon as I received the tracking number. there I sit on my bed as excited as can be, trying out the NEW Mascara that was going to change my life for the better...Just kidding

Upon my findings:

-the BRUSH definitely did live up to it's name (BIG) and long, the consistency was not as wet as I would have thought, was a bit dry - not sure whether this was due to the packaging process though.
-It DID NOT add any volume to my lashes, however in my poinion it added length instead
-One has to keep re-applying if you want any volume at all as it dried quite quickly
-Gentle on the lashes / eyes ( I have quite sensitive eyes and did not tear up, no burning, etc.)
-Lives up to it's claim "Reaches the tiniest lashes" definitely true!!!

Would I re-purchase - No, it didn't quite do the job for me....
