Budget Beauty Makeup Review: Essence Volume Stylist 18hr Curl & Hold Mascara

Budget Beauty Makeup Review: Essence Volume Stylist 18hr Curl & Hold Mascara

Next to lip balm, mascara was the first makeup item I started wearing decades ago, so needless to say, I’m pretty picky about my mascara. I like it to do everything — lift, curl, :, lengthen and not smudge. So, I get many mascaras to review and not all of them pass the test, but one I have been using by Essence Cosmetics has not only passed my test — but with flying colors!

About Essence Volume Stylist 18hr Curl & Hold Mascara $4.99:

Lash styling has never been so easy! Essence Volume Stylist 18hr Curl & Hold Mascara transfers the best hairstyling trends to your lashes. The special braided design of the cap has never been seen before. The creamy black texture provides a long-lasting volume effect plus an incredible curl that stays where it belongs thanks to the special micro styling waxes and the innovative paddle brush! Stand out with perfectly styled and curled lashes!

My results:

First off, the wand on this mascara is my perfect style — it’s full in the middle and tapers at the tip. And the formula is so on point, it does it all! I have straight lashes that by all accounts are thinning, but Essence Volume Stylist 18hr Curl & Hold Mascara not only lift and curls my lashes, but makes them look super full. I love that.

Additionally, I need my mascara to go the full mile, to last all day and night if need be, without smudging or flaking. I can depend on this mascara to stay in place and keep my lashes on point. I particularly hate when at the end of the day I look in the mirror and see a dark ring under my eyes from my mascara fall out, but no such nonsense with my Essence mascara.
