I naturally have long eyelashes, but it's not full. The mascara gives it fullness without clumping. The only thing is that by the end of the day my eyelashes loose volune, so I would have to re-curl it with my eyelash curler.
I was really impressed by how the formula holds a curl. I have always had trouble finding a mascara because I have Asian lashes (very thin, very short, grow straight down) and most mascaras I have used weigh down my lashes. However, this mascara is amazing at holding my lashes up. The lengthening factor is also amazing; you can definitely tell in pictures that my lashes were longer. However, the mascara clumps so easily and it was hard to de-clump when I brushed through with a clean spoolie. It also smudges a lot during application and throughout the day. I find that by the afternoon, I have dark circles under my eyes from the mascara. It's also hard to apply without smudging it. Overall, I think that it's not bad enough that I would stop using it, but I would try a different mascara next time.

I don't know if I received an old tube sitting in a warehouse somewhere but this was the worst mascara. It was clumpy and flaked. Threw it out after the second try.

I like to build up a chunky lash look. Works fine. Does smudge with sweat and heat. Over all prob would not buy again, do prefer Loreal Lash Paradise... but was not bad. But at half the price maybe in a pinch.

Waterproof mascara stays put. Looks great. Couldn't even tell my daughter and her mile long lashes went swimming. She loved it so much, I had to try it. Works nice, no dark under eye but I had a hard time removing even with makeup remover, we just switched to the micellar water, not a fan. For the lasting power and price it's a keeper

I've been using this mascara for the last four years. Nothing else gives me the volume and length I want for my lashes. And I use waterproof mascara because my eyelashes won't hold a curl with regular mascara.
JanaeE from California
This is such a good mascara! Gives me a lot of length, not really volume but it still makes my asian eyes look amazing! The hold is pretty good too! It's pretty hard for mascaras to hold my curl.
Lucy from Longview wa
I bought this for volume. It did not give me any volume. I would not but chase this again.

I have the longest and thickest lashes and nothing makes them stay. This mascara is amazing!
Isa from WA
I needed a new waterproof mascara and decided to give this a shot for the price. I was looking for effective and didn't break the bank.
I definitely like it! I live in Washington, and it holds up well in the rain, I don't notice any crumbling with wear. The brush is VERY large, so if you have smaller eyes this may cause issues. I do find that my eyelashes look very long with this on, and it doesn't clump TOO bad. Overall, for the price I'll be keeping this is my makeup bag!
Tanaya from Irvine
My eyes water all day every day, and it's been so difficult to find a mascara that doesn't bleed down my face or end up crumbling off due to my tears. I've been using this product for almost a week, and it hangs in there all day despite my tears and humidity from wearing a mask. Would strongly recommend!
M from Michigan
It's really good at making them curl and length is great too the brush is a big but good and would use it again
Katy from Southaven, MS
Great formula. Terrible brush. The formula is so good that it kinda makes up for the bad brush though. Great cheap alternative especially if you have to replace mascara more often due to eye problem. It doesn't flake on me at all.

For the price it's a really great mascara!! It's lightweight and really makes your lashes pop!
SensitiveSkin from San Diego, CA
Pros is that it's fair trade (made in Luxembourg), cruelty- free vegan, and it WORKS. It actually is a volume mascara. I don't have to spend forever building it. I've tried so many brands. Everything from Pacifica to Cover Girl to Revlon, etc. and this is my favorite. PS: I like the volume here more than on the Big Lashes mascara also by Essence
I have eyelid dermatitis so I basically can't wear eyeliner / eyeshadow and my skin around my eyes is really sensitive. So, this is totally safe for sensitive skin. Highly recommend!
rach from roanoke, va
i bought this mascara along with some other essence mascaras. i'd never heard of the brand but they seemed like a good quality for such a low price. when i applied this mascara, i was instantly impressed by the volume and definition that it gave my lashes. the brush is big, and if you apply too much it will clump, but overall it's a great product. it doesn't flake during the day, but i haven't tested the "waterproof" aspect of it yet. the one negative i have is that it does clump if i apply it to bare lashes. i use it after curling, priming, and defining my lashes with another mascara, and it goes on amazing !! worth the buy
Lizene from Dallas

Hockey Girl from Michigan
This is the best cry proof mascara ever I never smudges and always stays on even though sweat easy to wash of with a makeup wipe and is great in general
AJ from Waco, TX
I wear this mascara every day. It's the only mascara that I trust to wear when I go to workout or swim. Love it!
Josie from Beaver Dam, WI
I love this product!! And I'll be buying more very soon!!
It works exactly as described!!
Montana Courtney from Montana
I LOVE this mascara. I wear waterproof everyday because I always get transferring under my eyes with regular mascara after a full day for some reason. This is by far my new favorite. I tried the Too Faced, Better Than Sex but it dried out so fast (not on my eyes but in the tube/ applicator) and is 4-5x's the price. I like the application/ applicator of the Essence I Love Extreme Volume better too. Lasts all day and easily removes with Micellar water (for waterproof makeup). I started with Essence Last Princess waterproof which I still like but it goes on a little thicker. This is my ride or die everyday mascara.
Mare from Northeast Pa
I will say this is super waterproof so you'll need a good makeup remover to get it all off.
