Well that title was a bit of a mouthful! Hello everyone! I have for you today a little first impressions post on Essence's mascara. It isn't a very hyped mascara at the moment but I wanted to give it a try since I was in need of a new mascara and had seen a positive recommendation of it somewhere.
I bought it for around €2.89 in Pennys and since it was suuuper cheap I couldn't say no! I'm pretty sure they have another version for length and another for waterproof but I picked this one up anyway.
Here is a picture of the wand, its a curved wand which I actually like here as it fits the natural curve of my eye perfectly!
As you can see from the photographs I have very thin lashes and especially on the bottom they are also very sparse. So I usually pick up 'volumizing' mascaras instead of 'lengthing' ones
After first trying on the mascara I found that one coat was not enough for me. It did make my lashes look better but I wanted them a bit thicker looking so I applied the second coat.
Overall I am very pleased with the results of the mascara. I mean, its not a life changing product by any means, but I think for the price that it is, it is a great mascara. I would even say that it is just as good as some of the other more expensive mascaras out there. I would definitely pick this up if you are on a budget and need a cheap mascara or if you are looking for a daytime mascara to keep in your handbag without spending a small fortune!

I hope the pictures were ok, it was quite awkward taking pictures of my eyes as I've never done it before, especially trying to get the camera to focus!
Thank-you all so much for reading and let me know what your favourite mascaras are as I would love to try more out!
