Whenever you’re in a time crunch, a quick application of mascara is more convenient than sticking on a pair of fake lashes. Most of us probably have a go-to mascara that we keep in a constant rotation, but if you're ready to try something new, Amazon shoppers highly recommend a $5 alternative that provides dramatic results.
Whether you're going for a natural make-up look or something more glamorous, the best mascara can be hard to come by. Today, innovative brands have tried to provide magnetic lashes as an easier way to achieve long lashes (and avoid the lash glue), but sometimes you just can't replace the basics. That's why Amazon reviewers are praising the Essence Lash Princess Mascara for providing “sculpted length” to lashes.
Why spend a ton of money on luxury mascara when you can achieve a “false lash effect” for only $5? The dark black color combined with the conical-shaped fiber brush helps give a bolder look. It's rated as a no. 1 bestseller for mascaras on Amazon, and with over 100,000 shoppers awarding it a five-star rating, it's easy to see why.
“My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love,” one reviewer raved. “It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an 8-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!”
Another reviewer claimed they “don't even bother using a lash curler anymore” as it provides such dramatic length:
“Love this mascara! I’ve used the ‘best of the best’ designer, super hyped, ultra-popular mascara available and NOTHING compares to this stuff!” another reviewer wrote. “I don’t even bother using a lash curler anymore! I buy two at a time so I always have a spare (yes, it’s that good!!). I highly recommend this particular mascara...it goes on effortlessly, it lasts pretty much all day, and the price? I feel like I’m almost stealing it! I’d give it a 10 star if I could!!!”
So, next time you need to stock up on mascara, think about swapping your go-to for Essence's Lash Princess Mascara for an affordable alternative that helps deliver high-end results.
