Review of Essence I Love Extreme - Volume Mascara by ltgee
Hmm, saw reviews on the black one, went to Ulta and bought this for $4.99. LOVE the price and the tube is cute. I bought the hot pink one instead since it was newer and claims DOUBLE the extreme volume. So I put this on and..Im a bit disappointed. Yes, there IS volume but not without clumps. With just 1 application, I had to immediately brush through with my lash comb because my lashes were sticking together. Once dried (again, only 1 coat), some lashes had little "balls" at the ends of it which I had to pick off. The color is very black, which is nice, and again, there is volume but i'd rather have a lot of volume AND separated lashes. I also had a bit of raccoon eyes a couple of hours after-which I wont deduct any lippies for because most all mascaras do that to my oily eyes anyway. I definitely wouldnt say this gives you the "falsh eyelash" look (well, for me it absolutely did not) because i equate that with longer looking lashes. This makes my lashes look a little thicker but not longer. Its definitely an awesome price and comparable to a lot of popular DS mascaras but the look is pretty "daytime" for me. id rather just use my maybellines "full & soft" and just do 2 coats to get the same look, if not better, since F&S actually does a fantastic job of separating.
bottom line: wouldnt mind repurchasing for the rich black color & fabulous price...but clumpy.
