Nothing does it for me quite like a good mascara but I am a little bit of a believer that the more you pay for one, the better it is. In this case Essence’s mascara’s do ring a bit true to my beliefs. They are good, but are not going to change your life. They are however a good alternative to your expensive mascara’s. I have decided to wear my Essence mascara during the day to work when I have no meetings and the only person I will see is my bookkeeper and I use my more expensive, more dramatic mascara’s for days i need to impress. I would say buy this product because for R36 you won’t be disappointed but you are not going to be blown away either.
