Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara Review + Demo

essence i love extreme crazy volume mascara
Hello everyone. I have a feeling that November is going to be my lazy month unlike October where I managed to published 25 posts in 31 days! That’s a huge success for me and my blog. I wasn’t lazy last month but now I can feel every inch of my muscle not wanting me to write on my blog. I didn’t know what to post so I’m using one of my drafts because I don’t want my blog to be dead without new posts. At least one post every other day is okay for my lazy ass.

I got this Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara a few weeks ago along with a new moisturiser which I’m currently loving (so good!) from Watsons. I ordered them online with RM7 postage charge. I don’t know about you guys but I hate paying for postage which is why you don’t have to pay for postage for most of the items in my online shop! Go check it out here: @shoperin.coΒ (shameless pug right here)

My sister insisted that I mention this mascara is hers so you guys, this mascara is my sister’s. She bought it for RM15.90 which as you all know, Essence is a very inexpensive drugstore brand. Mostly nothing over 30 ringgit!

Nothing special I can say about the wand, it’s just your regular straight mascara wand that does a good job in separating lashes. Here I will show you the before and after:

My normal lashes that I already curled.

Without mascara on the left, with one coat mascara on the right.

One coat of mascara on top, bottom, left and right.

I have a love-hate relationship with this mascara. I loved the effect it gave my lashes. As you can see, with only one coat you can get extreme and crazy lashes like the name suggested. It lengthens, it volumizes, it separates my lashes. Basically what you see in the picture is what you get.


There’s a reason why I only put on one coat.

It flakes. It crumbles. You can see bits of mascara under my eye and the photo was only taken merely 5 minutes after application. I don’t know if I got a bad batch or anything because everyone who tried it lovedΒ it. The bottom lash application is a pain in the arse because the formula is so clumpy so it’s hard to get it evenly on the bottom lashes.

This mascara is not waterproofΒ so you can’t really expect it to last all day long especially when it starts to crumble as soon as you’ve applied it even in air-conditioned room.

If you can get around with the crumbling and flaking and you like clumpy mascara, then do give this a try.
If you don’t like clumpy mascara at all, then this isn’t the one for you. Try the Essence Lash Mania Reloaded instead. That one is a natural mascara that still gives you the length and volume you need without doing too much.

All in all, it might work better on you than on me so if you wanted to give this a try then go ahead because for RM15.90, you’re not really breaking the bank if it didn’t work out for you in the end.

I would give this a 3.5 starsΒ just because it flakes. I don’t have problems with clumpy mascaras but panda eyes only one hour through the day? Not my thang.

Before you start asking: it’s NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm.

So what’s your favourite mascara?
