Review: Essence Maximum Length volume mascara

Hello beauty lovers!

It is time for another review and today on the spot light we have Essence Maximum Length volume mascara. Eyes are the part of human body that we look at most of the day. Eyes reflect our emotions and feelings and in certain ways they help us to communicate. Even on the laziest days when makeup seems like a stranger for me I don’t forget my eyes. Is the Essence Maximum Length volume mascara worth to be trusted with our precious?

I won’t lie, at first I hated this product with passion. It seemed like it does not do anything at all but one day I didn’t do my eyeliner and I noticed that actually this mascara is quite good. I mean it really gave an impressive length to my lashes and it’s no magic at all. It’s just fibers. These little thingies aren’t anything new in mascara department. The fibers that I am talking about are tiny strings of silk, nylon or rayon. Shortly about each of them:

Silk is one of the strongest natural fibers and it has a smooth, soft texture that is not slippery, unlike many
synthetic fibers. Although, as the process of harvesting the silk from the cocoon kills the larvae, sericulture has been criticized by animal welfare and rights activists.

Nylon is one of the most commonly used synthetic polymers. It is highly resilient has a good specific strength.

Rayon is a manufactured regenerated cellulose fiber. Rayon is a versatile fiber and has the same comfort properties as natural fibers. The durability and appearance retention of regular viscose rayon are low, especially when wet; also, rayon has the lowest elastic recovery of any fiber.

Because there is no information on the packaging I have to guess that Essence use nylon (because it’s the cheapest) . After all this talk about fibers you might think that this is a miracle and you will buy only this type of mascara till the end of your life but I have to warn you that those little pieces of magic tend to flake and fall into your eyes. This happened to me more than once and I can say that it’s much more painful than ordinary bit of mascara in your eye and it is harder to get it out.

All in all, it is quite a good product especially for the price but I won’t repurchase it again. The next mascara that I have my eye on is Maybelline the rocket.

I hope you enjoyed the extra bit of information. What mascara you are using right now? I would love to hear.
