My Views About Essence Lash Base Mascara

2-3 months back I was actually looking for a good mascara as the ones I had weren't quite satisfying me and yup they were nearing their deadline to be thrown off! So when I saw this lash base from Essence which was pretty much affordable I thought "Why not give it a try and get that Faux lash effect or maybe put my existing dull mascara to good use?".


I picked it up along with another product from same brand and got free shipping :P

The Essence Lash Base comes in a cute sleek white tube with Neon Orange print - impressive and indicative I would say! The lash base itself is white in color (freaky if you leave it on its own). The mascara wand is pretty convenient and the bristles are soft yet placed with right space between each other which makes the product easy to be applied.


The lash base has a creamy consistency - a little thinner than a mascara but a precise one for a lash product. The base doesn't dry fast and I don't think its intended to anyways! I don't see any steps or tips to use it the right way so here is mine from usage and observation - once you apply the lash base leave it for 15-20 seconds or so to get set and then pick out your favourite mascara, apply a coat over and let it set. Do not apply the mascara immediately after applying the base as the colors mix up and your lashes look grey!


Don't let the base dry completely for applying mascara as your lashes get stiffened and the mascara application becomes hard. Let the coat of mascara dry and go for another one if you wish to. You might need a second coat most times in order to mask the white base.


The lash base does a good job and serves the purpose. It gives good long and thick lashes with just one coat and my lashes look amazing with it. It isn't waterproof and doesn't flake or chip off. It is an amazing product and is a must have if you have sparse or tiny lashes! Does pretty amazing job :)

Top tip: To avoid clumping, use a thinner mascara with it or use a lash comb\spoolie to separate your lashes before applying the mascara.

  2. I thought this might end up giving a weird clumping effect but it looks really nice.

    1. Yup even I felt that way but it doesn't clump at all. Just one coat of it gives that oomph to the lashes :)
