Essence Volume Stylist 18h Lash Extension Mascara

I got Essence Volume Stylist 18h Lash Extension Mascara a few months ago at a blogger event. First, I didn't really pay much attention to it, because the packaging didn't impress me, it looks quite childish. I didn't even see any reviews of it. One day I decided to test it and I'm glad I did, because it's awesome. Essence is really making a great job with their mascaras lately. I don't think I have been disappointed in the last two years at any of their mascaras and I absolutely love the I Love Extreme Waterproof mascara.

There are two versions of the Volume Stylist mascara, pink and purple. The pink one is supposed to curl the lashes and hold the curl and the purple one is mainly for the lash extension. Mine comes in a purple packagingLike I said, the packaging is a bit childish, but the brand is actually meant for younger girls, so I can overlook that. It costs around 3€ and I think it's definitely worth the money, I would even pay more for it. The brush is diamond shaped and quite thick. It is nice, but sometimes it can build up a lot of product that can clump your lashes, so you need to wipe it off every so often.

The mascara contains lengthening fibers for longer and fuller lashesAs far as I can remember, the formula was pretty much the same at the start, quite wetIt's not one of those formulas or brushes that you are going to get amazing results with just a few quick swipes. You need to take more time and be a bit careful with it. But if you have a little more time in the morning I would definitely recommend it. It elongates the lashes, makes them blacker and fuller, but it I don't think it's the best for volume (but I can't really talk about that because my lashes have great natural volume, I have never in my life even used a lash curler).

What impressed me the most it's the staying power. When I first start to test a mascara (especially in hot months) I am afraid to go somewhere wearing it, because I don't want to look like a panda. This one stayed on during the hottest days, when I worked out and when I was sweating a lot. It even survived crying and wiping my eyes, it didn't smudge or crumble not even a bit. On me it stays for the entire day. I have heard some bloggers say, that both of the versions, pink and purple one, are very hard to remove, but I didn't have problems. I use Ombia Eye Makeup Remover that I buy in Hofer (or Aldi) and it works fine, but to be honest, I never had problems with this makeup remover.

This is one of the best mascaras I have tried in years. It makes my lashes look just how I like it, black and full. And the staying powder is seriously impressive. I will definitely repurchase it when it gets old or when I use it up.

Thank you for reading!
