Everything you love about Essence I Love Extreme Volume Waterproof Mascara in a waterproof formula!
Rated 4.02 out of 5 stars
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've used expensive mascara and it wouldn't last. THIS STUFF STAYS ON AND LASTS!
I grabbed two so I can have one in my on the go makeup back for quick routines. So far I'm loving all essence products I've tried.

Great for short lashes

This is a super product and the price is great. All of Essence mascaras are wonderful.

I had my doubts about this mascara because it was my first time using this brand of mascara. But I'm glad I gave it a chance. I have straight lashes and they usually don't last curled (even with waterproof mascara) but this mascara keeps them curled all day!

This mascara stays all day, but to get it on is a hassle. The wand/brush is ginormous. Its really hard to effectively get all you lashes... and get them all without hitting other parts of the eye or getting a lot of eyelid splash of black dots
Ree from Fresno, CA
Use it every day!

I have super long lashes but they point straight to the ground. I am always looking for a good mascara that keeps them curled once I've used my lash curler. This does the job amazing! Have tried so many high end and will continue to use this instead!
Mackenzie M from canada
When I first got this I felt it was a 10/10 my lashes look amazing and we're so full. After a few uses then became clumpy and yucky looking. I don't use it often but when i do use it my lashes look eh.

Used an eyelash curler but this product didn't keep the lashes lifted

I have allergies that act up at times and this waterproof mascara is the best! No flaking and it stays put all day, every day! I love it! NO regrets about trying this mascara!
Nataleedee from St. Louis
This is absolutely the BEST mascara I've ever used! Goes on so smooth, gives me ridiculous volume and length, the color is true deep black, and the price is unbeatable. I love everything by Essence, so underrated.

Wanted to like this mascara. It looks nice when it first goes on. Unfortunately, with any tiny bump to, or bend of my lashes it flakes off worse than any other mascara I've ever used! Have tried multiple times to give it another chance and every time I'm fighting flakes.
Mel from Minnesota
While I like the brush, and yes its waterproof. I do not like the consistency, it's a very watery formula even after being open for a couple weeks. It definitely flakes and transfers after just a couple hours being on. I love lash princess so I thought I'd give this a shot. I will finish the tube but won't repurchase.
CharityO from AL
Every time I use this mascara I get compliments how how thick and long my lashes look! I used to only use top name brand mascaras until a friend introduced me to this, now I won't buy anything except this one! Mascara is a little difficult to completely remove but I'm not complaining that much since it holds its volume all day long!

not as good as i had hoped for. will try this brand again but not this product again.
Rorysal from AZ
I love this product that stays all day Andy to take off micellar water
Erica from Knoxville TN
I bought this for a trip to Florida, thinking it'd be better due to the humidity. I have worn it a couple times but it flakes quite a lot and bothers my contacts. The brush is good and it looks nice on my lashes, it just doesn't feel good for my eyeballs. I guess you get what you pay for though, so for an every once in a while, in a pinch thing, it's fine.
Dcrys from Weslaco, Texas
Absolutely love love how my eyelashes came out after using!!!!
Kerry from NY
I'm disappointed, because I've loved every other Essence mascara I've tried. But this one has a huge brush that is awkward to use and leaves behind clumps with every stroke. I haven't found a way to make this mascara useable yet.
Pring60 from Ohio
Price point was awesome. Goes on easily. Truly is waterproof
Anna from Montana
This mascara is everything. It holds a curl in a way that I have never experienced and gives that huge doe eye effect, and it's extremely volumizing as well! I literally have no complaints/cons. The first day I wore it, my coworkers told me I looked very bright-eyed...compliments all day!
Janea from Wyoming
After I tried buying the Volume Hero mascara by these guys and sadly couldn't find it I settled w this one... I work almost all day long doing lifting and fast pace work and besides a little bit of transfer on my lower lash line I just use my finger to clean up a little through the day, still holds a pretty curl well and has a very nice brush that fans thin lashes.

Between this and Lash Princess False Lash Effect Waterproof are my top favorites from Essence. They both give the False Lash Effect that I love and both of the formulas are as equal to any high end mascara. The formula reminds me of Better Than Sex mascara but the brush on this one give Better Than Sex cause of how huge it is. I highly recommend!

Trying to find a mascara that holds a curl without permanently adhering to my eyelashes has been a challenge. I have straight, stubborn eyelashes and waterproof mascara has become a key to keeping any kind of curl. I strongly dislike waterproof as a rule because it's so hard on the health of your eyelashes, so having one I can remove easily is critical for me. I don't actually care if it's truly waterproof, so much as if it holds a curl. This mascara does that. It dries quickly, holds a curl fairly well and removes with micellar water and/or makeup removing cloths. This is particularly true if I prime my lashes with a waxy substance like Egyptian miracle or Vaseline. It doesn't hold a curl 100% perfectly all day (hence the 4 stars instead of 5), particularly if I get too heavy handed with layers, but even if I add a couple layers, I can still tell my eyelashes have some curl by the end of the day. Especially for the price, this is the best one I've tried so far including high end mascaras from Tarte, Benefit, and KVD Beauty.
