Last month I came home for the weekend without any mascara so I quickly popped into the chemist to purchase a cheap-o replacement ahead of a night out.... I grabbed the first one I saw, and walked away with Essence's Multi Action Mascara.
Though I had never used this mascara, or anything else by Essence, my friend is a big fan so I decided to take a leap of faith..... and wow, am I glad I did!? This mascara is ridiculously cheap (I think it was around €2) and does a fantastic job. It applies nicely, and both thickens and lengthens without clumping. It has gone a little downhill with use/abuse but for €2, I really can't fault it. The smell is a little "chemically" but it's nothing that you can't grin and bear for the low price :)
Though I won't be making a permanent switch to this product, I will continue to use it and if I was ever in need of a quick fix, I definitely see myself repurchasing this bad boy!!
Have you tried Essence products, and if so, what do you make of them?
