Okay, The Essence Lash Curler Mascara. This is one of the items I picked up a couple weeks ago that was featured in my Essence Haul.

You’ll probably recognise the below photo. I used the same one because I’m trying to save the environment by doing things like recycling whenever possible and not throwing buckets of water and ice over my head.

I’m a sucker for stuff like this. A mascara with a TWISTY BIT that TURNS and CURLS EYELASHES! OMFG.

I picked this up and just knew this would be amazing.

So what you do, right, is you put the mascara on your lashes and twist the top, which makes the brush rotate and curls your eyelashes! Awesome, yes?

Let’s see how it fairs up. I put three coats on and took photos after each coat. Now you lucky things get to see my facial face, coat by coat, expression by expression.

You can see how I have long eyelashes, but they are straight and thin. I need volume and curl, please!

The results were pretty poor. My eyelashes to look thicker, but not amazingly so! Also, the curl doesn’t work at all. I get better results from using an eye lash curler, the twisting brush just doesn’t seem to do anything apart from make the process a little longer.

I’d buy this if you want a mascara that works okay, as it was around £3 which is fairly cheap for a mascara. It’s just average and even a bit clumpy at times!

I’m not impressed. I won’t be buying this again. Poo.



  1. LOL I was eating, but no your photos did not put me off! 🙂 I don’t know if you ever heard of a cartoon Masha and the Bear, but you remind me Masha in your pictures… Don’t worry she is very sweet!

  2. I am always excited when a product has something new that it does, but when it doesn’t deliver its disappointing. By the way the pics are lovely and fab eyelashes without mascara. Lucy x

  3. It’s a shame you were not impressed with this product but luckily it was only £3. I am searching for a new mascara at the minute too!! xx

  4. I recently got this mascara and I agree it isn’t the best. I mean I use it and it’s decent but nothing special. Ps. I think your beautiful and you should too. Life is difficult enough and I know it’s difficult to feel somewhat confident when there are quite vain people out there but you’re awesome the way you are. x
