Scale :before when hovering

I'm trying to scale the

:before
content of my
<span>
when hovering over it.
So far the style gets applied when hovering but there are no visual changes, the
:before
remains the same scale.

What I've got so far:

<div class="comment-actions">
<span class="comment-likes icon-ico-heart">
12
</span>
</div>


SASS (CSS):

.comment-likes
transition: all 100ms ease-in-out
color: #92a3b9
cursor: pointer

&:hover::before
transform: scale(1.5)


Icomoon:

.icon-ico-heart:before {
content: "\e914";
}

[class^="icon-"], [class*=" icon-"] {
/* use !important to prevent issues with browser extensions that change fonts */
font-family: 'icomoon' !important;
speak: none;
font-style: normal;
font-weight: normal;
font-variant: normal;
text-transform: none;
line-height: 1;

/* Better Font Rendering =========== */
-webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
-moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
}

Answer

Don't transform it with the scale property but use the font-size. So:

.icon-ico-heart:hover:before {
    font-size: 20px;
}
