Today I wanted to share a product that I had to try as soon as I heard about it. It's Essence's Volumizing Lash Powder, I got it at Ulta ( link Here) for $3.49 and it is rumored to give the same effect as the Too Faced Better than False Lash Mascara for a tenth of the price.
Here's the description from the Ulta website: "Essence's set for an absolutely breathtaking false lashes look! It's this simple: Apply your favorite essence mascara. Apply volumizing lash powder to lashes before the mascara dries. Seal with mascara & be amazed." Also the package mentions not to use if you wear contacts.
I cannot really describe the "powder" it's like a a jar of millions of little fibers and if you touch it it feels spongey and then the fibers stick to everything (This is where the danger for contact wearers comes in, I got a bunch of it in my eye first time around). So you have to carefully dip the spoolie into the powder before you apply it to wet mascara ( I used Maybelline Great Lash BIG review Here). And since you need to apply it to wet mascara you kinda need to be ready to go with the spoolie of powder. But once you get it down it does work!
On the left one coat of Maybelline Great Lash BIG and on the right with the Essence Volumizing Powder and a top coat of mascara. It's not quite falsies but it does definitely bump up your lashes nicely. I think you can wear it with contacts if you apply your mascara and powder first and then put them in.
Have you ever tried a "lash powder"?
