A couple weeks ago I went to shoppers drug mart and decided to pick up some essence products to try out. I think the Stays No Matter What 24hr Volume Mascara was in a magazine and I decided that I should try it out.
The product claims:
"Here comes the mascara for long nights of dancing, extensive shopping tours, long swimming sessions ... simply all walks of life. tested and found to be absolutely essential for all active beauties. the waterproof formula ensures lashes full of volume for up to 24 hours and the innovative fiber brush captures each individual lash with its creamy formula. for an awesome look that stays put. opthalmologically tested."
Let's go ahead and just pretend that they're using capitals in that paragraph... and get on with the review.
Here's a picture of the wand. I personally prefer wands with plastic bristles that don't collect quite as much product - but that's the point of volumizing mascara right? Lots of densely packed product? The photo on their website shows a clean brush but you can't get a good idea of what the product will be like if you can't see the product on the brush. So I thought that was just a little misleading.
Here's a picture of the mascara on my lashes. On the left I applied the Essence Lash and Brow Gel Mascara before I applied the 24hr mascara and it went on a lot smoother! The right eye seemed to hold too much product and feels heavier.
Overall I'd rate this product a 3 out of 5. It does it's job but I'm not a huge fan of the formula. Would I buy it again? Likely not - but I am going to try out a few other Essence mascara's for sure.
