Here’s another Essence mascara review! For a review of the Essence Lash Mania Reloaded mascara, click here.

This is another non-waterproof mascara housed in a fat black tube. It has no fragrance, only the standard mascara odor. Its brush is fat and rounded so it’s a bit hard to get mascara on the outer corners and lower lashes without making a mess.


Like the Lash Mania Reloaded mascara, the formula is dry and mousse-like and does not make my lashes clump together.

Here’s how my bare lashes look:

And here’s how they look with two coats of Get Big Lashes Volume Boost mascara:



As you can see, this mascara gives my lashes length and volume. Nothing crazy, though. Oh well, I have short and spare lashes to begin with, so this is the extent to which the mascara can improve them. I imagine the effect would be greater on those with naturally long and thick lashes.

Being non-waterproof, this mascara is easily removed with makeup remover. You can remove it with just soap and water, but it’ll still take work. It also flakes a tiny bit after a long day, nothing major, but it doesn’t smudge.

Truth be told, Get Big Lashes Volume Boost is highly similar to Lash Mania Reloaded so, yes, I also love it! It also contains more product–12mL vs Lash Mania Reloaded’s 10mL. Well, I will keep this on my list of good mascaras, but I will try another Essence variant once I’m finished with this.
