Essence I love Extreme Volume waterproof mascara

DSC_7080It is not often that I am blown away by something at first use, but the I love Extreme volume mascara, quite literally had me oohing and awing at how fantastic it is! I honestly don’t know what is happening to me, but over the last few weeks, I have found so many amazing budget products and so many of my high end bits have been left sitting in the drawer!

IMG_3375If you’re a fan of super long voluminous lashes, then this is the mascara for you.  This is a super black mascara, that seems to coat each lash individually. I don’t think the picture is doing the lashes justice because in real life each individual lash was defined, lengthened and made to look super super black. I mean be still my beating heart!!! I mean it actually looks like I am wearing lashes!!

IMG_3379Another bonus. The I love Extreme volume mascara is super easy to use on your bottom lashes. I know that is completely shocking considering the size of the brush head, but for whatever reason, it is brilliant for separating and defining the lower lash.

DSC_7061The super thick brush is brilliant for adding volume. What I really like about this brush is that even though it adds length and volume, it doesn’t leave the lashes looking clumpy. How can this be possible from such an affordable mascara. I mean I drawers full of high end mascaras and this beats so many of them when it comes to length and volume.

I tend to not worry about the waterproof side of things too much. Now matter how waterproof a mascara is, when I cry it ends up everywhere!! This is down to me rubbing my eyes like a child rather than the loss of the waterproof factor.

I found that this wore well throughout the day with minimal flaking. I find most mascaras flake on me, but this was a very small amount.


Ladies I really think that this is a real gem. I mean at €3.49 it would be criminal not to pick it up. You can get this on any essence stand.

    I love this mascara. I don’t know if they still do it but there was a mascara by Essence in a silver tube – not even a mascara tube, like a small toothpaste tube, think it was called Wild Lash or Lashes Go Wild and it was AMAZING. Your lashes look great here!

    Will definitely give this a go. Have you tried Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, I love thick voluminous lashes and the Urban Decay never flakes 🙂
