Review: New from L’Oreal! Voluminous Million Lashes mascara

8 Nov

I finally got around to snapping some pictures of the most recent mascara I have tried. L’oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Black , is the latest from L’Oreal. At first sight I reallllyyyyyy liked the gold packaging. For people that could care less about packaging I am sure you’re laughing about me liking a gold tube,lol. My first thoughts about the mascara after opening the package can be summed as  “A Dior Clone!”. The smell (don’t ask why I sniffed it) reminded me of the all of the Diorshow mascaras, which has a distinct rose scent. The brush reminded me of the wand of  Dior ‘Diorshow’ Iconic Mascara , its the mascara out of their entourage that (for me) curls and defines the best.

Anywho. here is a pic of my bare lashes.

 pretty gold tube 😉


What L’Oreal claims:

This luxurious,buildable formula amplifies each lash instantly. Glides on smoothly, and lasts all day, while thickening and separating every lash for a clump-free, flake free, smudge-free look.


Overall, I like the brush, it is easy to handle and I feel like I can get to all my lashes. However, I feel the product calls out its main feature as “voluminous”. I didn’t exactly feel like it fattened my lashes. It’s not terrible, it did lengthen, and wasn’t clumpy, but didn’t hold up to the volume claim. At least for me it didn’t. I paid about $7 with a coupon. If you can get it on sale I’d say give it a shot. Otherwise hold off, I still think L’Oreal does a great job with mascaras.

Have any of you kittens tried this yet?
