Essence happens to be one of my most favourite drugstore brand and it is no surprise I put it into my top 5 most affordable Malaysian drugstore makeup brand (post link here). On their website they claim to be cruelty free and apparently they also use minimal animal ingredients.
This product is very similar to another popular brow product that is also named very similarly *wink*.
I love it by the way, and so this review is good!
Description: It is an eyebrow mascara with tiny fibres in it that help fill in the brows. It comes in two colours 01 (blondy brows) and 02 (browny brows). I have the darker one, i.e. 02. Contains 3.8 ml product.
Where to buy: Watsons, selected Aeon Big and selected Mydin.
Price: MYR 12.90 (as always, it’s a drugstore product and you could wait for a discount, but at MYR 12.90 you have nothing to lose!).
I don’t typically use it on its own. I like filling in my brows with a pencil first.
Easy to use (not a product you can go overboard with).
The tiny fibers really fill the brows up.
The wand is really helpful and small enough to fit even thin brows.
Long lasting and keeps brows in place well (a good 6 to 7 hours if you don’t sweat or rub your face/brows).
Doesn’t make the eyebrows stiff or crunchy (I hate that! I’d rather use hairspray if a product did that!).
The wand is pretty stiff.
Not waterproof (not necessarily a con).
Not easily available.
This rating may change depending on how it fares with the famous high end product. I have yet to try that one but when I do I’ll review that too!!! As for the product itself, it is A-MAH-ZING! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! I already have a freaking backup!
