Review: Innisfree Soy Essence Volume Mascara

29. September 2014


A while ago I purchased some great Innisfree products for 50 % doscount at testerkorea. One of these is the Innisfree Soy Essence Volume Mascara. This is my second Korean mascara, after I tried the Etude House Lash Perm 3 Steps Volumescara, and I love it ♥

Innisfree Soy Essence Volume Mascara

Innisfree is an eco-friendly Korean skincare and makeup brand focusing on natural ingredients and recycle packaging. The design of their products is simply and neat and nicely reflects the ideology of the brand. Innisfree products are ususally free from harmful ingredients. In this case I didn’t find detailled information about the ingredients, but, as said in the name, the formula uses soy essence from black beans in order to give your lashes extra care. The packaging is very simple and it didn’t have an extra box with detailled information. The body of the mascara bottle has a matte brown color. Because of the color I was first unsure which color the mascara has, but it is a black colored mascara.

Other than this the packaging is not really special and doesn’t have any kind of ornaments or decorative elements. It looks simple and mature like most of Innisfree’s products. The brush of the mascara is medium, I would say. It is not super thin, nor is it very thick. The wand has a normal length like almost all mascaras have. You can see the production date printed on the bottle, too.

Below you can see how the mascara looks on my lashes. It makes my lashes look thicker and gives them a nice curl. All in all, my lashes get more visible. The consistency is creamy and you feel that there is some kind of essence in it, because it feels a bit “heavier”. It wasn’t bothering though. I have to point out that this mascara is a fibretype mascara and it is not easy to remove. It works best with some eye make-up remover and warm water. On the other hand, I didn’t experience any fall-off or smudging with this mascara and I love using it.

Innisfree Soy Essence Volume Mascara is a good and affordable mascara that I enjoy using. It costs 14.68 US$ at  W2Bauty for 9g of product. There are also other types of this mascara, like the Innisfree Soy Essence Curling mascara and the Soy Essence Waterproof mascara available. Other than that you can get it from testerkorea for 10000 Won/10 US$ (shipping not included). I’m really happy that I got mine during the 50% sale, because it was such a great deal for 5 bucks only :D.

    This looks quite good, a very natural finish and I think that’s also because of the formulation!

    Looks like it does a great job of lengthening, but the 3 Step gives me more volume.
