Brandefy Review

*According to Cruelty-Free Kitty, Essence is cruelty-free but Chanel is NOT. Commander in Chic Natalie Reddell says Essence is NOT a dupe. The Essence wand has way more 'whispy' bristles than the Chanel. Essence is very thick and she did not like this as a base to her mascara because it is so heavy. She will be sticking with Chanel.

I’ve compared these two Lash primers under the same mascara and did not think the results were all that different, despite the fact the bristles on the wands are different. Chanel has the plastic type bristles and essence has the more wire-like bristles.
