Canmake Eyelash Essence: overnight growth

Canmake Eye Lash Essence

Canmake Eye Lash Essence is truly amazing!  I’ve only used this essence twice and I just have to rave about it.  It’s by far, the best product I’ve tried which can noticeably grow my eyelashes overnight!  And I got it at a steal at about S$11 during the recent GSS sale!  Anyway, the normal retail price is only S$13.90, still very affordable compared to the other more expensive brands like Talika or Mavala.   

Described as containing conditioning agents panthenol and lavender extract, this product helps protect your lashes throughout the day, hydrating them and providing them with greater firmness.  Because it is transparent, you can also use it as a base before using an eyelash curler to give your lashes a longer-lasting curl or as a base for your mascara, increasing volume and helping in the application.

The growth on my lower lashes was the most noticeable.  I was already getting longer lashes from my Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Eye Treatment but the Canmake Eye Lash Essence made them much longer and fuller!  In fact, I had some long lashes dropping off the morning after!  Simply incredible!

It’s easy to use and while it’s slightly sticky, it isn’t messy at all.  All I do is apply it before bedtime, go to bed in it and get longer lashes next morning!  No kidding!  I’ve tried Mavala’s and Browlash’s and I have to say this is by far, the fastest eyelash growing product I’ve tested.  No wonder it had many forumers raving and 14 reviewers at Makeupalley giving the product 4.4 out of 5 rating.

So if you’re in the market for a cost effective eyelash product, check out Canmake Eye Lash Essence.  You may see overnight results like me, or perhaps see visible results in two weeks’ time like what the other gals have experienced.  

But note that you can only find Canmake Eye Lash Essence at selected outlets.  I got mine at Guardian at Suntec City.  You should be able to find it at Watson’s at Bugis, Parkway Parade, Ang Mo Kio, Toa Payoh, Junction 8 and Ngee Ann City too.

    oh my, you got me sold on this! sound incredible and i am dashing out to get one! ?

    Lia: It works!

  2. Selina says:

    I have to agree with you, I have been using Canmake eyelash essence for about 1 month now, and I can see that my lashes are longer! Especially on my lower lids.. I was using Mavala before but my lower lashes weren’t this long.

    A question though..there’s no expiry date on the product, when do we discard it? I am guessing within 4 months, since Mavala’s one is about 9 months and its packaging is more “secure”.

    Selina: I’m thinking it should be about the same as mascara. Within 3 – 4 months is about right.

  3. Selina says:

    Forgot to add, I saw results in only a few days too! Plus it’s cheaper than Mavala so I will definitely be repurchasing this.

  4. parisb says:

    I had read a lot about this but never got round to trying it. Maybe now I will! ? I tried Mavala Double Lash. Worked to a degree while I was using it, but when I stopped, all effects vanished.

    Paris: I think it’s the same with most eyelash products. The effects stop once you don’t use them cos your eyelashes will drop and the new ones won’t grow as long unless you condition them again.

  5. fashionasia says:

    oh i almost got this frm sasa but i was skeptical about it…
    will try it out..

    fashionasia: Hope you’ll like it if you do try it…

  6. frond says:

    read your review a couple days back so went out to buy one without double checking exactly what you talked about. Came home with the Lash & Brow Treatment instead. Sigh…

    hope it works for me. I’d love to have fuller lashes!

    frond: Oh geez…never mind…you can still get it again next time. Good thing it doesn’t cost too much. Hope the one you bought will work for you too!

  7. flym says:

    I read the reviews with some scepticism. How can eye lashes grow overnight just like that? I decided to give it a try anyway and guess what? It actually worked!! It took a couple of weeks for me to observe an effect, more on the lashes at the outer edges. I must add that my usage had been quite inconsistent so with regular application, it may well deliver better results.

    flym: Glad it worked for you! My lower lashes grew very quickly. I could see it the next day. I didn’t observe much growth with my upper lashes though. Maybe they’re already at an optimal length. I’ve been lazy too…

  8. Buffy says:

    I am unable to get from my area (Boon Lay – Jurong Point). Tis might sound foolish. Would anyone be able to help me buy & mail to me? I dun go town at all & I work in Boon Lay ?

    Please email me at, pls pls (,”)

  9. jo says:

    jo: You can find Canmake’s product at Watson’s. The eyelash product is available at Bugis, Parkway Parade, Ang Mo Kio, Toa Payoh, Junction 8 and Ngee Ann City. Also in Guardian at Suntec City. Look up at their website:

  13. Ena says:


    Ena: Oh BANZAI! So glad it worked so quickly for you! ?

  14. Minouche says:

    Could someone maybe tell me where in Europe (The Netherlands) the Eyelash Essence can be bought? Or can one buy it on the internet?
    I hope you can help me, because I sent an email directly to Canmake, but they don’t answer at all. ?

    Minouche: I haven’t come across any resource in Europe that sells Canmake. Not too sure about the online sites specifically catering to Europe too…but you may want to try this I haven’t ordered from them before though.

  15. Minouche says:

    Thank you for your response. I’ve ordered the Eyelash Essence along with a curling jet mascara and a quick lush curler mascara of Canmake on Ebay! I’ve already received the products and am using them everyday!!
    Thanks again!;-)

    Minouche: That’s great! I hope you like the products!

  16. li ting says:

    Oh wow seems like almost or should I say everyone who tried this out are raving about it! I should have came across this earlier! I’ve been using petroleum jelly which worked in its early stage but stopped since and isn’t really that safe to use anyway… =X

    Going to buy it at Bugis this week~

    Li Ting: Petroleum jelly is a bit thick and rich for the eye area isn’t it?

  17. Amber says:

  25. shan says:

    ive hunted quite a couple of guardians and watsons in large shopping malls in the west and in town but, the eyelash essence were all out of stock. try john little if anybody’s still looking for it ?

  26. sesame says:

    Price gone up? I remember seeing it last at Suntec’s Guardian. Not sure if they’re still available there.

  27. Sunshine says:

    Where can I find the Canmake eyelash essence product in USA?

  28. Sunshine says:

    Is there anyway I can do mail order?

  29. gem85 says:

    Is singapore still selling this product ??

    Where can i get it ?


  30. sesame says:

    It’s still available judging from info on their website. Check it at I got it from the Suntec Guardian but not sure if they still have it. Maybe you can write to Canmake to check.

  31. gem85 says:

    Thank You.. Gg to get it today.. =)

  32. sesame says:

    Did you find out which stores have it now? I read from comments of other readers that they couldn’t find it. So not sure if they still have it at the Suntec City Guardian.

  33. gem85 says:

    I called and check..
    The SA told me the packaging have change to Blue color.. So i’m gg to get this @ parkway watson..

    * Eyelash Essence *
    Increases volume while also conditioning damaged eyelashes. Works also as an eyelash base.

  34. gem85 says:

    Refering to my post *32*

    The SA have make a mistake..
    ** Sorry abt it
    I have purchase the *red colour eyelash essence*

    It cost: 19.90

  35. sesame says:

    Thanks for the info! ?

  36. gem85 says:

    Can i use it in the morning as well ?
    or only once per day ? ?

  37. sesame says:

    You can use it in the morning as well; just make sure it doesn’t get into your eyes or interfere with contact lenses if you wear that.

  38. gem85 says:

    Sesame: Thank u.. =)

  39. gem85 says:


    By the way, there is two type of canmake eyelash essence.
    One in blue tube, the other is red tube ??

    Is there any different ?
    Thank U..

  40. sesame says:

    I’ve never seen the red one…is that new? I suggest the best way is to ask the SA if there is one or to write to ask Canmake directly.

  41. gem85 says:

    ooo. ok.. thank.. =)

  42. stephy says:


    m new to your blog, tks to shape magazine! interesting blog with lotsa reviews and tips on skincare!

    im using this lash essence too. but i was wondering can i actually apply it to the root of my lashes? any idea how long is the shelf life?

    tks in advance ?

  43. sesame says:

    Because this is chemical based, don’t apply right at the root where it’s too close to your eyes to prevent any irritation. The shell life is 3 month – 6 months, much like your mascara. But it’s not a lot so if you use it every day, it should deplete quite quickly.

  44. Jessica says:

    I don’t seem to see it ANY canmake product at Causeway point (John little, Watson) although their site states so. Anyone seen it there before? If you did, which section?

    Issit available at SASA SUNPLAZA?

    I cant seem to find the eyelash essence T_T !!

  45. Jessica says:

    BTW the red one is lash care.. not for making lashes longer but for taking care of it.

  46. sesame says:

    It seems it’s OOS or something cos a number of readers said the same thing. Maybe you can write an email to Canmake to ask?
