Looks like I'm wearing falsies
The Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara in the pink tube is possibly the best mascara I have ever used and I've used a lot! The brush is so incredibly big which might not be good for beginners. At first I thought this mascara was too wet and it wasn't giving me enough volume but after 2 weeks since opening it it became this wonderful thick mascara which gave me the appearance of wearing false eyelashes. I felt like my eyelashes with this mascara on should be featured in a magazine. Some tips for applying it;
1. Let the formula dry out a little once you open it
2. Start applying it by focusing it right at the base/roots of your lashes
3. Then focus on applying to the middle length of your lashes
4. Then apply it to the tips of your lashes. At this point you may need to re-dip the wand into the tube
The accurately described 'crazy volume' lasts alllll day and holds curled lashes perfectly

Great product for the price
I got this in a priceline sale, so for an even cheaper price!
I have really liked it and found it gives excellent results without a lot of clumping. My only real issue is it really stings in the eyes if it gets in while removing it, however if I wash it off in the shower its fine.
be careful when removing. Too many layers ruin the effect, 1 or 2 at most.
people with eyes that aren't too sensitive.

Pretty awesome for less than $5!
The wand on this is big and fat and slightly resembles the Benefit They're Real wand.
It does a decent job of separating and coating the lashes while giving a little volume and a decent amount of length.
It's easily buildable, I just keep applying, back and forth between each set of lashes until I'm happy with how they look, but yes, it can clump if you apply too much like any mascara. It's easy to control if you apply many think coats rather than try to go in heavy straight off the bat.
It does a good job of lasting through the day but it will definitely transfer if you have oily lids so you'll need to powder to prevent that.
I really like this one and really recommend it to anyone who is curious about Essence products.

Cheap and does the job well!
I ave never really gravitated towards essence makeup because it didn't really appeal to me but after hearing good words about the brand I decided to try it out buy buying this mascara and I was pleasantly surprised at how well this mascara actually worked!
It does a pretty good job of volumising and it doesn't clump up my lashes either, although it does smudge a little towards the end of the day.
For the price you really cant go wrong with this mascara!
Wipe excess product off the wand before application for best results.
Beauties on a budget who are looking for a volumising mascara that works!

A surprising little performer
I found that this mascara really did give me volume. Without clumps. Or flakes. Or smudging. I love the wand, I love the formulation and I REALLY love the price point. I will definitely be repurchasing this mascara.
As with all mascaras, it's a good idea to wipe excess product off the tip of the wand before applying.
Anyone who loves a lashy look and is on a budget.

Great for the price
This is one of the cheapest mascaras I've ever found & it works great as well! It does volumise, darken & lengthen quite nicely. However, it does smudge a little after a few hours of wear.
