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 have the longest and thickest lashes and nothing makes them stay. This mascara is amazing!

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!

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!

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

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!

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!

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

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

It works exactly as described!!

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.

I was weary of this mascara because of the price, but Essence is always a great buy!
It goes on easily and doesn't flake and holds its curl.It lasts all day and truly is water proof.
I highly recommend if your looking for a true black mascara that lengthens and stays put.
Rebekah from Oklahoma City
I didn't like this as much as I did the curling and volume one. It left my lashes clumpy and yucky.
JDawn from St Louis, Mo
I buy a different mascara when I need it and this has been the worst tube I've purchased. It smudges easily for being water proof.
Just Me from Evansville IN
No matter how many other mascaras I try I ALWAYS come back to this one. Price is great and it always makes my lashes look long it hold curl and with 2 coats its dark enough never crunchy or flakes and with a lash primer like Lancôme it looks like high dollar mascara for a fraction of the price!!
Rebecca from PA
I have small and deep set eyes, where my lashes with mascara will touch the lid. This mascara will transfer onto the upper eyelid. Since my eyes are small, it is difficult to apply with the size of this wand (it's very big!) without getting it smudged along the lashline. Wore it once while raining and my lashed became droopy and clumped as a result. Not very waterproof. I have heard there is another waterproof mascara worth trying from Essence.

On clean and simple. No runs when I cried at a funeral

I really like essence's princess lashes false lash effect mascara, so I thought I would try this one. The applicator was way too big. The mascara was difficult to actually place on your lashes, and it would get all over my eyelid because of how big the applicator was. I exchanged it for the one I knew that I liked. The princess false lash effect mascara is my forever favorite.

Recently I had a passing in the family and there are days where the tears just get the best of me. Well this mascara does not budge. It is hard to remove but it's worth it for me. It doesn't flake or transfer.
