To start with , firstly I would like to let you know that Essence cosmetics has got nice mascaras.My all time favorite is the Lash Prince Volume mascara.And that's why I thought of checking out the Volume Stylist 18hr Curl & Hold Mascara.mascara the moment I saw the packaging!Today, I am going to review the same for you all. :)
So, let's get started...shall we?

As I mentioned earlier in the Introduction part, the packaging of the mascara attracted me a lot!
So,the nude pink coloured satin tube with a black twist open cap looks so gorgeous.
The details like quantity, shelf-life are mentioned on the packaging. The weight of the tube is very light.Travel-friendly packaging. The lid closes tightly enough to avoid product spillage.Love the girlie packaging.
In Pic : The applicator wand of the mascara.Cleanly separated fringes
The formula is moussy, but, towards the drier version.It dries quickly.The texture is creamy.The product is very pigmented and dark black in colour. Lightweight formula....must say.
- The fully loaded paddle brush works nicely on the lashes.It helps in coating the lashes around inner-corner of the eyes.Easy to coat the lower lashes.
- The mascara curls the lashes too. Holds the curl for a long time. But, then at the end of the day the effect was gone!
- Very comfortable on eyes. Doesn't feel heavy on the lashes
- Each time we dip the wand into the bottle,enough product comes out and helps in coating the lashes.
- Very affordably priced and easily available.It's a steal.
- Lengthens the lashes in one to two coats and gives the desired volume after three coats!
- Separates the lashes nicely.
- The effect of the mascara stayed around 7-8 hrs (in my case) until I went ahead and removed the product from the lashes.
- Water-resistant mascara , but , not waterproof. Be aware if you are looking strictly for a water proof one.Skip this mascara.
- Flaked ever so little and didn't give raccoon-eye-look.
- Need to apply at least three coats of the product to get the desired volume.Of course,over coating the lashes with the product will result in clumpy-looking lashes which will not look good.Avoid over application. If you are in a hurry and want this mascara to work in a jiffy.It won't happen.It might lengthen the lashes and might not volumize them quickly.
- 18hr curl and hold is a big claim. This mascara doesn't stand up to the mark as expected! In case you are looking for a mascara that stays for a very long time on the curled-lashes this mascara might disappoint you.
Will I re-purchase?
Yes, definitely.This mascara is amazing and very affordable. Really good quality mascara...love it.
Overall, I would like to say that this is a nice mascara.I am loving it.It has not disappointed me.It lengthens the lashes beautifully plus volumizes too. Yay.All in all I recommend trying out this mascara.No complains as I have tried various high-end mascaras and faced disappointment! This mascara is quite affordable and works fine. Can be used on a daily basis as it doesn't dramatize the lashes a lot.
