Product Info

Brand

The Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Boost Waterproof mascara comes in a thick tube and has an equally huge brush. I loved the brush for my upper lashes, but not for my lower lashes. I had to be really careful not to make any mistakes when applying. The formula is thick and actually gives me a good deal of curl and volume. It does lose the curl throughout the day but I really like the effect, especially for the price. I can also build it up to two layers, which is far more dramatic than one.

Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Boost Mascara

I have this in the non-waterproof formula and I love it!

Yes, Essence mascaras dry out really fast, but they are super affordable and therefore a no brainer to replace.

This particular one is sooo good! You get volume, length & no flaking. It's also super black.

Do give it a go!

Where have you been all my life???

I have always had a problem with my eyelashes not being full enough, without having to use fake lashes or liquid liner,
This does the trick. Two coats and your sorted.
Its a lil tricky to do your bottom lashes as the wand is so big but once you get the hang of it, your sorted
Overall comments.... Love, Love , Love!!!

AMAZING!

I love the big brush on these Essence mascaras! For the price the product is just amazing and it doesn't budge in the pool or sea so it's a holiday staple for me.

Essence Get Big Mascara

Hmmm... I have mixed feelings about this mascara.
The price is great, and when I first applied this mascara I liked the effect. I generally like a mascara with a "full" brush, but this one really is HUGE! I managed fine with my top lashes, but the bottom lashes were another story. It's just really difficult to reach all your lashes without getting the formula everywhere, due to the seriously large brush.
The formula is a nice consistency, not too dry or wet, and quite thick so it builds up some nice volume. BUT after just an hour, I could already see black lash marks just below my brow bone where the mascara was smudging, which I do not expect from a waterproof mascara (and I do not have oily eyelids). As I wore the mascara throughout the day, I felt the need to check on it every now and again to make sure it wasn't smudging again (which it did).
I want to love this mascara because I like the initial effect, and I have tried - with and without foundation on my lids, with lid primer, with and without eyeshadow, but it just keeps smudging on me.
Unfortunately I won't be buying this again. Quite disappointed.

Essence Mascara

I purchase most of my beauty products from Essence. Their price range is perfect for me, being a student. Their products are incredible. Three to four years of using Essence and still going strong!

Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Boost Waterproof Mascara

To be honest I did not actually purchase this product, my sister did and I'd sneak into her room every morning just to use it! I love long, dramatic eyelashes -they just change up your look entirely from 10 to a 20, which is exactly what the Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Boost Waterproof Mascara did.

I naturally have long eye lashes so a single coat did the trick, leaving them long, exaggerated and BARBIE like. If you have shorter eye lashes apply more then one coat to achieve your desired look. I love the Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Boost Waterproof Mascara because;

1. It was long lasting
2. There were no clumps so application was easy and not messy
3. Yes it was actually waterproof and required some serious effort to remove

However the CONS are;
1. It does get a bit flaky towards the end of the day under they eyes

That being said, I would definitely purchase this again.

Essence Get big lashes Mascara

For the longest time I've looked for a mascara that does what it says its going to do and i never really found THEE ONE until i took a chance with the essence get big lashes mascara.

Not only did this formula give me more defined lashes but it has grown my lashes as well, yes ladies, i said it, GROWN my lashes. I'm one of those few that have really short lashes so when I noticed my lashes growing, best believe that I became essence mascara's number one mascot!!!

The bonus: It's super affordable !!

Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Boost Waterproof Mascara

This mascara can be purchased at Clicks and R47.95

I LOVE this mascara.

It comes in a blue tube with the words "Get Big Lashes" written on it.

It has a really big brush, making it easy to clump up your lashes and make them BIG. I like to apply this and then use the tip to add more mascara at the ends of my lashes to make them stand out more.

It's also waterproof which, as I've said before, I love because at the end of the day you won't end up with smudges under your eyes.

A must have if you like mascara but are on a low budget.

Stone hard lashes

Now, this product is somewhat a little bit too drying and my lashes needed to recuperate after every use. This could be a deal breaker for anyone but what I've found is that it adds a lot of volume and length to my lashes. Instead of using it on its own, I first coat my lashes with a non-waterproof mascara and then apply the big lashes mascara on top. This helps me skip out on the falsies for some looks and will always be one of my favourites.

Waterproof Mayhem

I had used this mascara twice and on both occasions, it left my eyelashes feeling stiff to the point that it hurt when I blinked and as a contact lense wearer my eyes felt dry and often found the mascara flaking and falling into my eye which was quite uncomfortable and dangerous. it is also difficult to remove with the makeup removing wipes or pads and had to use and oil based makeup remover to get it out as it was stuck on the next day even after I used makeup removing wipes and facewash the night before and in the morning,

Mega lashes? Maybe not

The price is just right for this mascara but I did not get the desired result. In fact, this mascara lumped and clumped my lashes so much I had to wash it off and re-apply at least twice.

I love essence products but I do not think all their products are very good quality. Do not get me wrong, I love the range and everything in it and the price does not hurt our pocket.

Some mascaras are just better than others

Turn Up The Volume

If your'e like me and have naturally long lashes but doesn't quite pack the punch then your'e in luck.

Finding a mascara that actually delivers on what it promises is a never ending struggle, especially when it comes to volume.

I love that it just takes 2 coats to achieve amazing LONG LASTING results. The wand is large which is great because the results really open up the eye and give you a lush look.

Get the falsie look without all the effort and half the price.

available at leading cosmetic retailers.

Essence Get big lashes waterproof mascara

I was recently on the hunt for a new mascara that I could use in the summer and especially over the holidays. I normally don't use waterproof mascara but I was already starting to see quite a bit of smudging even with just a little bit of warmer weather and I really hate that. I knew I wanted a waterproof mascara but I didn't want to spend a lot because I only use it over the summer holidays. The reason for this is that I find waterproof mascara really terrible to remove. It doesn't matter what make up remover you use, you always have residue for days.

I came across this at Clicks and I had used a different essence mascara before that I was very happy with so I looked at the brush which is always my deciding factor and saw that it was a regular but much larger than usual brush, this intrigued me. The product is very affordable at less than R50 and so I grabbed one.

The tube is a really nice size, the color with a pop of pink writing is a great bright blue and it looks like a fun mascara to use. This mascara did not disapoint with delivery. I have very sparse and short lashes and what I got from this product without any curling or mascara base was long, thick and curled, volumnous and separated lashes. I struggled a bit with my bottom lashes but I figured out I can just use the end of the brush at an angle. I really love the look this mascara give my lashes. I find the formula non irritating and it doesn't smudge in the least. It also holds the curl and length all day.

In my opinion there is only one thing I really don't like about it but that goes for all waterproof mascara's in my opinion. It is a B*at#h to take off! It really doesn't matter what I use or how I use it I will have black rings under my eyes for days on end in the morning and after washing my face.

At the end of the day I love the price, how it works and feels and that it lasts. I will most likely buy it again when I need more. I want to try the regular version of this for a nice daily mascara and see if it gives the same result.

Great waterproof mascara

I bought this when I was going to Thailand as I knew that I would be swimming and sweating a lot!

As a waterproof mascara, it works really well and I didn't have any smudges after swimming.

It gives great volume and doesn't clump or create any fall-out.

This is a perfect mascara for summer!

Waterproof and smudgeproof

A super big brush comparable with rimmel scandal eyes,Estée Lauder sumptuous, maybelline colossal and the cheapest of them all! But just as effective! One sweep endures lash to tip delivery and thick voluminous lashes! Makes me look like i have false eyelashes!its water and smudge proof# awinnerbyanyaccount

Did not like. At all.

What I can't get over, is how this mascara makes my eyes water! The formula is somehow different to their other waterproof mascaras I own & it just doesn't work for me. Maybe I got a bad tube or something? The big brush isn't terrible, but its not great for precise work either and I find it to get clumpy fast. So even if the formula didn't sting my eyes, I still wouldn't reach for this over any of my other waterproof mascaras.
