Essence Get Big! Lashes Mascara



If you read yesterday's post (here) you'll know that instead of spending money, I'm trying to shop my stash and review what I've already got!

Today I want to show you one of my sister's favourites, the Essence Get Big! Lashes mascara. She talked me into buying it after I was complaining that my lashes aren't as pretty as hers, and this was apparently her secret! 




This particular version of the mascara is made entirely for volume and curl! I'm not one for using an eyelash curler, as I'm extremely lazy and can never be bothered, so I love a good mascara that will curl your lashes for you and keep that curl! 


That's one big brush!

The brush is curved so that it can create a curl in your lashes, and it's a big brush so that it can get you big lashes!

Now, let's have a look at my lashes to see how it goes!




My lashes with no mascara! They haven't been curled either. 




My eyelashes after using Essence Get Big! Lashes mascara.
I used two layers.

I did find the consistency to be slightly clumpy, as you can probably see, but it's nothing that closing your eye over a tissue won't fix. (I will usually do that anyway, to avoid any mascara marks on my eyelids or under my eyes!)

Aside from the consistency though, I absolutely love this mascara and can see why it's one of my sister's favourites! It really does give you big, curled lashes that look fabulous! Almost like false lashes, in my opinion. If you're not looking close up, of course!

It's a very long lasting mascara, too, and I find that it doesn't smudge or come off too easily, although it is not waterproof. 

This is a fantastic mascara for under $10, and you can buy this from Target or Priceline. I would definitely recommend this!


Have you tried any Essence mascaras before? If so, what did you think?

  1. This looks a bit too clumpy on the ends for me! I hate it when my eyelashes stick together because I don't have very many as is! But it's a very good price :) I do like Essence's range in general though.

    1. I know the feeling! Although if you do use an eyelash brush or just a bit of tissue, it ends up alright!

  2. Oh, I don't think I would try that >,< I'm totally anal about mascaras feeling and looking silky~ Plus, I would hate to try & remove all of that at the end of the day x.x~ So glad you did a review on this though because I do see this brand around & always wanted to try it- saved me from going back to the store for a refund >,<

    1. Ahaha yeah I know how you feel. It actually removes well with make-up remover, but yeah, it's not for everyone!

  3. It does look a tat clumpy, but the length it gives might make it worth it! Besides, you can always run an eyelash comb through to separate your lashes...

    1. I agree! I get that people don't like clumpy (who does) but I think some mascaras had be wonderful if you just use a comb or even a bit of tissue like I mentioned! Some need a little maintenance haha :P

    1. You should, to see how it goes with you! A lot of mixed reviews out there about this one so I think it's a trial and error product!

  13. I have this. It's great for a $5 mascara! I did find that it dried in the tube pretty quick after opening... but for $5 you can't really complain!

    1. It hasn't dried out yet for me so I must be lucky, but I couldn't agree with you more! $5 for this is pretty good! :)
