Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara Review

Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara Review
Meet my current favourite mascara. Essence's I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara is hands down one of my best make-up finds and proves that lower priced products should never be underestimated. Priced at about three euros, this is the cheapest mascara I've ever tried. I think that a great deal of drugstore mascaras perform wonderful, which is why I've never had the need to get my hands on any high end ones, but I had no idea that the cheapest of them all would end up stealing my heart.
Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara Review wand
The mascara comes with a big plastic wand, which might be a little bit hard to handle at first. I'm quite used to big wands, so I personally didn't have any problems with maneuvering, but if you are a little bit clumsy when it comes to mascara application, it might be hard for you to reach the inner corners. Having said that, the wand does have some bristles at the very top, which can be very handy.

The initial formula is somewhere between wet and dry, but I would consider it more on the dry side since the mascara dries out really fast. You definitely need to follow the thee month rule with this one and throw it away, because I started experiencing a lot of flaky fall out after a couple of months. The flakes just ruin your makeup, because they get smudged all over the face and you can quickly start to look like you've just climbed out of a chimney, so listen to me and throw it away when it's time. Luckily, it's cheap, so you can always purchase a new one.
Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara Review Swatch

Excluding the drying out annoyance, the formula is pretty fab. It doesn't make your eyelashes stick together, adds a bit of length, holds the curl, and provides some volume. Unfortunatelly, not extreme crazy volume, like the name suggests, but it gives a great everyday definition. You can see how it looks like on my naturally completely straight and therefore hardly visible lashes in the photo above. I didn't use an eyelash curler this time like I normally do.

I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara is not groundbreaking, but it ticks all the boxes when it comes to my daily mascara requirements. And the fact that it costs only three euros is just an added bonus! I'll not be running to the store to repurchase it right away, because I have two other highly praised mascaras in my drawer that I need to try out first, but I'm 100% certain we will meet again soon. Have you tried this mascara yourself? What are your thoughts?

  1. Meni je super ta maskara, končno ena maskara, ki nekaj naredi z mojimi trepalnicami :)

  2. Jo mam že ene par mesecev in še kar čakam, da se posuši :D Meni se zdi ravno obratno - ful je mokra in mi skupaj lepi trepalnice. Je pa res, da jaz ne maram plastičnih krtačk.

    1. A res? Moja je po treh mesecih za v smeti. Za razliko od tebe pa meni ravno plastične krtačke odgovarjajo. Te mi vedno lepo moje čopkaste trepalnice dajo narazen. :D

    2. Isto kot Ajdina je tudi moja še vedno precej mokra. Mi je pa super, ker od vseh maskar, ki sem jih preizkusila, daje najboljši volumen. :)

  3. Mene sprva ni prepričala, kasneje sem pa skapirala da je totalno kul :)! Jo mam pa že kake 3 mesece in je še vedno čist fajn. Pa poceni :)!

    1. Hmm, mogoče je bla pa samo moja falirana, da se je tako hitro posušila... :D

  4. "...but if you are a little bit clumsy when it comes to mascara application..." Talking about me? :D
    Jaz sem se ob prvi uporabi te maskare tok u učko, zaradi predolge krtačke, da sem jo potem samo odložila v predal in je zdej cel mesec nisem pogledala :) Ampak ji bom dala še eno možnost, ker jo vsi hvalite pa ker drugače obožujem plastične krtačke.

    1. Phaha, nope! Drugače se pa vsem kaj podobnega občasno dogaja... Jaz se včasih 'ustrašim' krtačke in žmrknem takrat ko je najmanj treba. :D

  5. Meni je tista črna veliko veliko boljša, tudi sama ne maram preveč plastičnih krtačk, ampak tudi tale ni slaba. Zadnje čase me Essence maskare kar naudušujejo...dejansko so mi tako dobre, pa recimo Maybelline in MaxFactor, da mi je škoda kupit kakšno Diorjevo.

    1. Črne pa še nisem preizkusila. Bo mogoče naslednja na zelo dolgem seznamu, haha.

  6. imela sem že diorjove, chanelove, collistar, artdeco, max factor....ni da ni maskare...ampak ta je trenutno moj top izbor; cena pa ji dodatno pripiše še večji pomen, ker maskare itak menjam v 4 mesecih. Slabost je zame le ena: ko sem namazana po spodnjih trepalniceh, sem včasih pod očmi črna, ampak to rešim tako, da če rabim make up za cel dan, se po spodnjih namažem s kakšno drugo maskaro. Si mogoče preizkusila kakšno maskaro od Catrice?

  7. To maskaro sem si kupila, ker sem slišala veliko pohval na njen račun. Res je dobra, najbolj pa zmaga cena, ker itak menjam maskaro na 3-4 mesece. Drugače pa sem bila vedno proti plastčnim krtačkam, zdej pa sem drugačnega mnenja, ker vsaj pri tej maskari je tako, da mi ful lepo razporedi trepalnice, kot mi ene maskare sploh ne. Zagotovo jo naslednjič spet kupim! :) btw, si mogoče preizkusila od Catrice kakšno maskaro?

    1. Ne, od Catrice nisem do sedaj še nobene, sem pa ravno zdaj eno v Cosmopolitanu dobila. :D

      Delete
    2. Catrice maskare niso dobre, vsaj meni. Imela sem dve (Lashes to Kill Ultra Black Volume Mascara in All Round Mascara) in pri obeh je isto: po parih urah sem bila črna okoli oči, in takoj ko si jo namažeš se ti konice začnejo vihati vsaka v svojo smer! Not appealing! Mi je tale od Essence precej boljša, pa še cenejša je :)

    3. Ugh, ne sliši se dobro. Jaz sem eno vodoodporno v Cosmotu dobila pa si jo šparam za poleti. Če bo ok, jo bom uporabljala, drugače bo šla pa pač v smeti... :D

  8. I really need to try this one! What a great review Sandra, as always!! xxx

  9. Škoda, da te nimajo tudi vodoodporno verzijo, ker od navadnih maskar mi je ta ena najboljših :)
