The I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara is an intense mascara. Without careful lash preparation, this mascara can end up a complete disaster. I highly advise everyone to comb lashes carefully and curl them thoroughly before applying this mascara. On correctly prepared eyelashes, Essence's I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara adds awesome length and volume - this is the kind of mascara that only takes one coat to look like two or three coats. On the other hand, this mascara can build up way too fast - clumping awfully. This deep black mascara has a wet formula that stays wet for a while. The moist formula is pretty weighty, uncurling my lashes. Sadly, I get poor wear from this mascara - which seems to be a trend among Essence mascara. I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara begins to flake just a little about two hours after application, but after five or six hours its nearly gone. The remnants are surprisingly hard to remove though, which is strange considering this mascara's flaky nature.
While Essences I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara is an improvement over the other Essence mascaras I've tried, its still a disappointment. Its easy to go overboard with this mascara. I Love Extreme Crazy Volume is not a mascara for those afraid of big lashes. Unfortunately, the big lashes do not last - this mascara flakes awfully. For that reason, I do not recommend, nor would I repurchase, Essence's I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara.
