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?



Review: Loreal Voluminous Mascara+pics

7 Sep

I spent a few hours at the beach on Monday. It was a pretty easy breezy day. I was sans make up, but decided last minute maybe I should throw on mascara to open up my puff mama eyes. So here is a review , of what I used…see I am redeeming myself, no?  I bring to you; Loreal Voluminous mascara in “carbon black”


One coat……….. guys please bear with, I am figuring out my new camera and its many settings.

two coats.

Ok kids, I am in love. It is waterproof, by chance if yours truly would’ve jumped into ocean, I reckon my lashes would have survived. It held up my curl, and gave me great seperation.The brush wasn’t too big, something that could drive me nuts. And it really is CARBON black, just how I like it.

Here is the only caveat…getting this puppy off. It is waterproof, so the wax content is alot higher than regular mascara. To prevent you working too hard to remove the mascara, and potentially losing lashes use something OIL BASED.

Check my recs for products I have tried to get off waterproof eye make up.



And finally………..Dear Summer, I know you’re going to miss me.
