Hi Darlings, today’s review is going to be on the Essence I Love Extreme Curl And Volume Mascara.
At this point, we all know what I think about Essence mascaras: most of them are good, but they dry out super quickly which makes me wonder if they are really worth it but that being said, I love it when I find a good one!
In case you are new here, in a mascara I personally want it all: length, volume, and it has to hold a curl. So if you are like me, what I like might suit you. If you are not, you might find something you like, even if I don’t.
Get the Essence I Love Extreme Curl And Volume Mascara from Ulta for $4.99.
The packaging is classic of mascara but it’s bigger. The wand has silicone bristles and it has the weirdest shape. It twists around and it has longer and shorter bristles.
It also has this spikey bubble on top that is PERFECT to get lashes at the corners. I wonder why more brands don’t do it.
The formula has quite a liquid consistency and very black. If you are not careful, it tends to transfer onto your lids when you apply it especially since the brush is so weird.
Once it dries, it doesn’t smudge or flake off.
EFFECT & APPLICATION
I always do two coats of mascara to get the best results. This mascara is very lengthening and volumizing. I also like to use it on my lower lashes (mine are pretty long though).
It’s slightly clumpy but I love the way it looks on my lashes. I find that it holds a curl quite well.
This mascara lasts all day on me without flaking or smudging.
I find it fairly easy to remove with micellar water, I don’t have the black halo around my eyes when I wake up.

I absolutely adore this mascara, I actually got compliments on my lashes when I wore it because they are super long and voluminous. The weird wand actually works amazingly and I’m incredibly impressed. It might be my favourite Essence mascara out of all the ones I’ve tried.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
