I was most intrigued by the Essence The Lash Curler Volume and Curl Mascara* because it claims to curl your lashes without needing any help from an eyelash curler! The idea behind it is that as you apply the mascara you twist the lid (it rotates) and that curls the lashes as you apply it - too good to be true, right?

I'm rather disappointed in this mascara - i don't know if I'm using it wrong but definitely does not curl the lashes enough to completely abandon the eyelash curler. For me when i apply it, it doesn't twist the way it's supposed to so it's just like using any other mascara. In terms of what it's like as a mascara - I'm not that crazy about it, the brush has a slight squared edge to it which to me its rather strange, it also adds very little length to the lashes. I'll give it credit where it's due it does add volume to the lashes and separates them quite well too - i did half expect it to be clumpy and give me spidery lashes.

I really would like to know if I'm using it wrong and what other people think of this mascara because I'm convinced i must be using it wrong. At least i hope i am because i had rather high hopes for this mascara and well, it's left me feeling disappointed.

Have you tried it?
