Essence I Love Extreme Mascara

Shout out to beautiful Ashii at Beauty for Thought for recommending this mascara!

This is, I think, the third Essence mascara I've purchased.  The trick with some mascaras is to use them for a few days, I swear the performance improves with air exposure or something.  That was the case with "Get Big Lashes" which I didn't like until the second week I used it.

The brush is big, but not the "spoon" type: 

My results (please keep in mind I can't find a lash comb): 

I really, really like this mascara.  It's really thick but it doesn't clump or smudge.  I think it would look a bit better combed out, but nothing I can do about that presently.  I think it is really black, and I can see how it clings to my lashes, giving the volumizing effect.  I didn't think anything could be less expensive than Maybelline, but this is, and I really like it!
