When it comes to makeup, mascara is a must have in my everyday routine. Putting on mascara is an easy step with a major impact, as it opens up your eyes and takes you from basic to glam in just a few seconds. I prefer my lashes to be big and full, with almost a false lash effect, so I’m always on the hunt for a great, affordable mascara that will do just that.
I’m currently an Ipsy beauty bag subscriber, and one month I discovered one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried, Essence Princess Lash. Since then, it has been a staple in my makeup bag. I’ve tried so many different mascaras, from Covergirl LashBlast, to Maybelline Falsies Lash Glam, to Benefit They’re Real, but THIS, Essence Princess Lash, is the best so far!
It comes in this really pretty black tube with a pink heart design on the cap and pink writing. The design on the cap is also made from a rubber material, so it makes it really easy to grip the handle, and it feels secure in your fingers. No dropping the wand here!
Applying this mascara is really easy with the curvature of the small brush. For a full glam look, I like to apply mascara on my bottom lashes, and this brush is perfect for that as well, with no smudging. The formula is really black (love it!) and thick, which definitely helps build volume and the illusion of false lashes. I usually apply two coats, and I’m good to go!
Description from the website:
Get the royal treatment! Essence’s Lash Princess Volume Mascara is presented in a fantastic evening gown design and has a unique wand applicator designed for extra control to reach every lash. The prestige inspired cobra brush is specially shaped to lift, separate, and cover each individual lash for the most majestic volume.
This mascara is super affordable, only costing $4.99, and can be purchased at Target and ULTA. Personally I prefer to purchase it at ULTA because not only do I earn points, but ULTA frequently has a $3.50 off $10 purchase coupon, so you can buy this, plus another item and end up paying less than $4.99 for this mascara. Amazing deal!
