By far my favorite drugstore-like mascara. Love almost everything about it: the brush, the coverage, the volume, the definition. The perfect amount of product comes out, the formula is great from the first swipe. Two coats is great, but three is perfect.
My one gripe is that it transfers on me. I have only ever had one other mascara do that (Voluminous by L'Oreal), so I'm rather sad this otherwise fabulous mascara does it. I may have to try the waterproof version (is there one?) to see if that cures the problem.
Edit 7/14: I started using a different mascara on my bottom lashes to see if that solved my smudging problem and it did! I L-O-V-E the look this gives my top lashes. I find myself reaching for this more than any other mascara I own (I pair with Maybelline F&S for my lower, in case anyone is looking for a combo that works well).
No need to write the same thing as all the ladies - one word - AMAZING! HUGE lashes and clump free! would definitely buy another tube. A+++
This price is ridiculously cheap and stays put but the brush is large and awkward to get a clean swipe on lashes. It also pulls way too much out and clumps occurred in less than a month's time. Once it's on tho, it looks good so if you're willing to work with it, then it's worth it.
Better than most everything if you like crazy volume! V black. Difficult to remove without a proper cleanser, more difficult than most mascaras. Lengthens a lot, too!
I ran out of my One by One by Maybelline, and i really liked it. But i wanted to try something else (and cheaper).
When i saw this on the new collection from Essence it really caught my attention because of it's brush and claims. Also, the other mascara (black tube) from this line is really popular, although i never tried it.
After the first time i used it, i was completely sure it's the best mascara i've tried.
I have already long lashes, so i want volume and curl.
This mascara gives curl (without using any lash curler), it separates the lashes, gives the perfect volume and without clumps or smudging all day ^^
The biggest differences between this and the Maybelline One by One is this one gives more volume (lashes appear fuller, which i like) and it doesn't make the lashes hard, they remain flexible to the touch. Also, they don't look as clumped - it's more natural looking.
And i find it looks really natural. To me, the lashes don't look like those on the photo above, because i only use one coat and the result is perfect to me and to day wear. :)
I'm very happy with this mascara, and i will definitely repurchase :D
For certain ocasions, it may look that i'm using too much makeup, because it really makes my lashes pop. For those days, when i'm looking for a really really natural look, i use Essence Multiaction mascara.
So far so good! Ive been wearing this for the ppast few days and I am liking the outcome.
- lengthens as well as thickens
- rubber bristles means definition for me
- cheap! Something like $5AUD
- lasts all day and holds a curl
- sold out everywhere and rarely restocked
- pink tube is kinda tacky and childish
- flakes into my eyes at the end of the day when cleaning off
- tube is quite bulky
Overall Essence never fails to impress me on quality. They are my new favourite brand.
I was so excited because of all the great reviews here and on blogs. What a disappointment!It's a really wet formula so with only one coat my lashes just stick together.As a bonus I get clumps and it is really messy it gets all over my eyelid.After using loreal and maxfactor even maybelline is better than this.I really wanted it to be good because it's so cheap but a failure.
This mascara is a-ma-zing!! I've used a lot of high end mascaras, but none of them are as good as this one. It gives you volume AND length! In the Netherlands it only costs €2,69! Could this get any better??
AMAZING! with only one coat, not even a full coat that I would do with any other mascara, more like half a coat, this gave me amazing volume and crazy length! i'm amazed at how fast this built up. It does have a small bit of clumping and thats why i didn't do a second coat and also I had enough mascara on in one coat that looked like three coats! Love this mascara!
I absolutely love this mascara. I was previously using the Rocket by Maybelline and ran out. As much as I love that mascara, I think this one tops it. I used it today and it makes my eyelashes look ginormous. I used to use the original I love extreme mascara and I loved that one too, but I think this one gives a ton of more volume. The brush is a lot like Revlon's photoready mascara, but a little bit longer. It applies really well. I also spend less time applying it because it adds so much volume within like 2 coats. I strive for volume, so what used to take me like 5 minutes to get the results I wanted with the Rocket now takes me about 2 minutes with this mascara. Keep in mind it is a very volumizing mascara, so clumps are inevitable, but I don't really mind them. The price is cheap and you get a ton in the tube. If you loved the first I love extreme mascara or if you're looking for a dramatic volumizing mascara, give this a try!
