~~~Loreal voluminious mascara~~~
I like L'oreal products and have been generally satisfied with them in the past so decided when shopping for my next mascara few weeks back to purchase one from L'oreal. It has been a while since I have brought anything from L'oreal due to massive choice of make-up and different brands and I was really spoiled for choice. I picked Voluminious one, the look of this mascara was definitely a selling point for me as well as promise of extra volume with no clumps. Perfect!!!!!
Eyes are my best facial feature, I have big eyes and I love using mascara (and make-up) to make them really stand out. I have olive skin and blond eyelashes and appear very dull looking without mascara or make-up.
Mascara is presented in a rather nice bronze/gold looking tube with black writing on it. In my opinion this is very classy look for mascara, well I have seen worse. My mascara is slightly different from picture here on Dooyoo, when I was buying it, there was couple of mascaras that were black with bronze/gold lid on it however they are both called the same and after my comparison of the two, I have not noticed any difference between them.
I like my brush to be thick with loads of bristles to those plasticy brushes with short bristles. I actually didn't know what the brush may look like with this one as there was not picture/tester available but I still decided to purchase it. When I eventually managed to opened it (it came wrapped in the transparent foil which took me and my hubby good few minutes to get rid of, what a palava) I was pleasantly surprised to see the thick brush with very slightly curved bristles on one side for better application.
This mascara is promising an extra volume with no clumps. I am not sure whether they have just given it a wrong name; my mascara actually gives my lashes extra length. Don't take me wrong, I am not complaining, I love the way this mascara makes my lashes look lovely and long, however if someone is buying this mascara for extra volume only they may be disappointed. I have noticed some volume in my lashes but not awful lot. I apply few applications; I like my eyes to stand out. Too many applications can leave clumps but I find that the same happens with other mascaras I have used before.
I think I paid around 9 pounds mark for this mascara in Boots few weeks ago but is available on line or other stores selling make-up.
I am quite happy with this mascara; my friend actually commented yesterday on how lovely and long my lashes look. I would recommend it however must point out that it gives extra length rather than volume so if you buying mascara just for the volume, I would buy different product.
I am awarding 4 points for mascara because I havent noticed any extra volume on my lashes. I like it because it makes my lashes super long.
Summary: I still like it
