The wand is amazing for lengthening and volume but I find the formula too wet!

At first I was skeptical about this product, mainly because you get a whole lot of product hanging off the brush the moment you pull it out. And if you're foolish like me, you would've applied it directly to your eyelashes without a second thought, then wonder why you were in danger of raccoon eyes.What I'm trying to say is: Be careful with this mascara or you'll make the same mistake I did. The thought of scraping the excess product against the rim of the tube never occurred to me until recently. Once I did that, it was much easier to control the amount of product I was spreading over my lashes. Furthermore, it did exactly what the label promised it would... which was give extreme volume and, as a bonus, lengthen my lashes. Additionally, it was great in the sense that it didn't dry up to the point of hardness yet didn't flake or clump up after hours of wear.

Excellent mascara for the price. Gives you dramatic dark lashes and it's only $5 cdn at shoppers drug mart. The only con is that it gets goopy and thick pretty quick and the brush is so huge that i almost always get mascara residue on my upper lash line when i am applying the mascara. But that is really easily wiped off/fixed with eyeliner. I've tried most of the other essence mascaras and this is the best of the lot

BEST MASCARA EVER! Seriously - and not just for the price! How many brands claim to give that false lash effect? This is the only mascara that delivers! I can't count the number of people who have asked if my eyelashes were real or if I had lash extentions since I started using this product. I rarely ever write product reviews but when a product is this amazing I want to share it with the world! ** disclaimer: I do have naturally long lashes so I'm not positive that someone with short lashes would still experience the "falsies" effect in the same way, but for $5 bucks it's worth a shot!

The I "heart" extreme is a good mascara. It thickens the eyelashes. And it's great for the price. However, it's not the absolute best, but it's not bad. Its good for budget shoppers. This mascara is not as good as L'Oreal Paris' voluminous lashes.

I'm not a mascara buff, so before heading out to my local makeup store, I went online and found that this had such positive reviews from tons of beauty bloggers around the world.I have never been so disappointed!This formula flakes on me on the 2nd hour of wear, and I live in the Philippines where it's pretty humid, so it made the flaking worse.But wait, it gets even more worse.The black tint? totally bleeds and makes me look like a racoon. I should've gotten the waterproof version or something, but really! This sucks so bad.Application was okay but the wand was so big, I kept poking my eye! So fun! *sarcasm*Will not repurchase, ever.Price was 125 Php? Not sure, it's cheap but shame on me for putting so much of my trust on a cheap mascara.I'm going to try Maybelline's mascaras instead! UGH.

After seeing all the positive reviews of this mascara, I decided to purchase it and because of its popularity, I went to 4 outlets before I can find it! It was out of stock everywhere. Unfortunately after trying this, I was so disappointed. I have naturally straight downwards lashes, so I usually do spend a decent time to curl my lashes before mascara. However, this mascara is so heavy, it weighs down my lashes and doesn't hold my curls at all. Just after applying, my lashes was in an awkward straight manner. I try to give this mascara several attempts but it still weighs down my lashes.It might work really good for those with naturally curled lashes. But for naturally straight downwards lashes, this is not fabulous at all. I threw mine away.

I've been using this religiously for almost two years now. This mascara is a staple in my makeup bag and I have repurchased it many, many times. People ask me all the time if my lashes are real. I recommend this mascara to absolutely everyone, and many of my friends have started using it after I recommended it to them. Due to the plastic wand, it thickens the lashes while still seperating them -- which the original I Love Extreme doesn't do as well, despite still being an excellent mascara as well -- and adds so much length. I curl my lashes and apply this afterwards, and it holds the curl all day. It's jet black without a hint of gray. On me, this mascara doesn't smudge, but no mascara ever has, so maybe it will smudge on others as it isn't waterproof. (However, essence did just come out with a waterproof version of the original I Love Extreme which I can't wait to try!) It has never irritated my eyes. It will clump a little, but in a nice, thickening way. The texture is great: thick and a little dry (once you've used it a few times), which is also the reason why it does such a great job at tickening your lashes and adding volume instead of just glueing them together, like most very wet mascaras do. However, you will have to use it a few times because -- like most mascaras -- it's still very wet when it's new, but it'll only take a few days to dry down to its normal creamy texture. The packaging definitely isn't luxurious, but fun and bright (but I might be biased as pink is my favorite color!). And at that price point? SOLD. Sold until the day they discontinue it. Which I hope never comes around.Will I repurchase? Yes. Would I recommend it? Yes. Do I love it? YES! I URGE you to check it out! At that price point, you can't go wrong -- and I really don't think you'll be disappointed.Since I don't know how to add pictures, you can check out my Instagram account (@mkpbyotchh). I have a shot up in which I'm wearing it (please excuse the terrible quality, I took it with my old phone). I have to add that I really caked it on for that photo so if you think it looks too clumpy, you can get a much more natural and less clumpy look if you just use less! Now try it out and enjoy!

YES. Just YES. Amazing mascara! Especially for the price. $5 for a high end performing mascara? YES please. :DThe outside packaging is nice with pink and black lettering. It makes my storage look prettier haha. As for the brush, it's a large, rubber bristle brush that gathers a lot of the product from the tube. It's very precise and helps to get every lash longer, fuller, and darker.The name says it all: crazy volume. Very volumizing, holds it's curl, lengths lashes beautifully, and lasts all day. Seriously can not go wrong. Layers well on other mascaras too. Definitely recommend!

Finally a mascara that gives me the volume I want. This is perfect not only for the price but because it really does give you a lot of volume. I usually wipe the wand on a tissue before applying to avoid gloops. Definitely try this out and other Essence mascaras, they're amazing for the price.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
