Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review of the Essence High Beauty Vegan Volume Mascara.
This line contains hemp seed oil which basically is manufactured from varieties of Cannabis but doesn’t contain significant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the principal psychoactive element present in the cannabis plant. The oil contains omega 3, omega 6 and linoleic acid that stimulate elastin which makes the skin more beautiful, healthy and elastic.
I’m going to repeat what I said in the Essence High Beauty Brightening Concealer review: I’ve never smoked because I’m prone to addiction so I avoid it, but no judgment if you do, the thing is, I got curious about it and when I saw an affordable brand like essence doing a line with Cannabis derivatives I decided to give it a go.
You can get it here for 5,75$
The packaging is classic of mascara, you get all the info on the back.
It has a slightly curved cone brush which I really like because it grabs all the lashes.
The formula is quite thick and very black. Once it dries it weights your lashes down so if you curl them you’ll have to do it again after the mascara is on (be very gentle!).
This mascara is very bland. I don’t like the way it looks on my lashes and it’s terrible at holding a curl which is actually my main concern and the reason why I normally use waterproof.
I haven’t noticed any benefit with the hemp oil addiction but it might take more time.
I always do two coats of mascara to get the best results.
This mascara lasts all day on me without flaking or smudging.
I find it fairly easy to remove with micellar water, I don’t have the black halo around my eyes when I wake up.

Sadly, I don’t like this mascara, it’s absolutely useless on me, to be honest, there is nothing I would save. Maybe if you like a very natural mascara but honestly you can find better anyway. Even for that price.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
