Essence "I <3 Extreme" mascara---I had never heard of Essence until two weeks ago. I was blown away by this mascara! I'm not exaggerating when I say I have tried all but possibly 3 mascaras available outside department stores. This is the closest thing I've found to Diorshow. It has a smooth consistency without being too thick, so it will cling to lashes without clumping. The brush is big, thick, and has short and long bristles on it to grab lashes. Did I mention it's only $3.99? $3.99!!!!
