Essence Maximum Volume Mascara

My latest go-to every day mascara is… Essence Maximum Volume Mascara! ess_MaximumVolumeMascara_offen.jpg

It lasts the whole day…  I’ve been applying about 3 strokes to each eye for the past few months and it really builds so well on your lashes, giving lots of volume and lift to your eyes, its a semi-wet consistency but dries quickly and it doesn’t flake off your eyes during the day. It is a super magic mascara for anyone looking for added volume but I think the trick is down to the wand. Its a plastic rubbery mascara wand.

The wand helps to separate the lashes individually and because of this it doesn’t result in unsightly clumped up lashes while building some length. I’ve been using this mascara for the past 4 months (I know you are not supposed to do this – but it is still fine), the consistency has not changed and the formula has not gone dry which is a huge bonus.

One eye with mascara, the other waiting to be applied. Perfect for everyday volume!

A real steal for anyone lashes as the retail price is only R53.95 and is available from selected pharmacies.
