Essence Cosmetics - Battle of the Volume Mascaras

I purchased two new mascaras (to me at least) during the Essence black Friday sale, to try out. I'm always on a hunt to find volumizing (over lengthening) mascaras because I really enjoy how they make my lashes look more fanned out. My lashes are naturally on the longer side, so I find lengthening mascaras don't do much for me. In this "battle" we are going to be comparing Essence Cosmetics mascaras in I Love Extreme Volume Mascara (waterproof) and Get BIG! Lashes Volume Boost Mascara.


First up, you're going to see what my lashes look like with no mascara, so we can compare it to how much volume both of these mascaras may give me. 

 I'm not sure how easy it is to tell... but my lashes are long! Just not as thick as I would like! So in comes volume mascara!


I Love Extreme - Volume Mascara (Waterproof) - $4.99
For all fans of one stroke volume, this mascara will hit the spot! The large fiber brush quickly adds incredible volume to each lash.

The brush on this one is very wide, and thick. Which may make applying it a little difficult.

We can see that I Love Extreme mascara definitely added some volume to the roots of my lashes, and made them look much thicker towards the outer part of my eye, which I really like! You do have to be careful with this brush/formula though, because it gets clumpy very easily. This also is messy!

Get BIG! Lashes - Volume Boost Mascara - $3.99
Volume, volume, volume! The get BIG! lashes mega brush gives lashes a big volume boost and reaches even the shortest of lashes. No clump, light-weight, and easy to apply. 

The brush on this one is thinner than the previous, but it's still thick. It's not as hard to apply to the lashes, and definitely isn't as messy!

 
This is a comparison of both mascaras. The side that I'm holding the mascara tube on, is the eye that I applied the Get Big! Lashes to.

I find that these mascaras both give very similar results. I would say though that the I Love Extreme lashes is a messier formula, and it does get everywhere if you are not careful. You do get a little more volume with that mascara as well. Get BIG! Lashes didn't volumize as much as I would have liked, but they both did a good job. For the price, you can't go wrong. And if you were to use the Get BIG! Lashes with a few coats, I'm sure you would be able to build it up to a more volumized look.

Have you tried Essence Mascaras? Which one was your favourite?
