L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes
I tend to ramble, so I’m going to try to make this post short and sweet.
As you know, I’ve given my pricey mascaras the heave ho and traded them in for some pretty spectacular drugstore favs (check out past choices here and here). While, I’ve been pleasantly surprised with my economical finds, so many new frugal versions keep popping up that I can’t truly be loyal to just one.
My latest foray into drugstore mascaras lead me to L’Oreal’s Voluminous Million Lashes, an update on the line’s original Voluminous mascara. The VML mascara got a lot of press in many of my favorite beauty and fashion magazines from makeup artists and beauty assistants raving about it, so I knew I needed to try it.
I bought my tube at Target for around $6.99, which is a steal. While, I’m more honed in on how the product works, rather than how it looks, I do have to say I was liking the shiny gold aerodynamic packaging. What really made me want to try it was the built-in wand wiper which helps remove excess product, preventing unsightly clumps. I also liked that the wand head was fat and flexible, making it easy to layer on coats.
I never judge mascara on my first few uses, for me, it seems to take about a week to really break in a tube of mascara. But, after using it for a few days I knew I had found a keeper (granted, I’ve already moved on to a new brand…it’s so hard to be loyal!!). I loved that the mascara gave me thick, voluminous lashes, without the clumps. I also liked that it was easy to layer on and gave nice separation.
So, would I buy this product again? Of course I would! But, the odds of that happening are very slim being that so many wonderful new versions are waiting for me to try out. But, for those of you who are still caught up in mascara snobbery (I know, it’s hard to walk away from Dior and YSL, but I did it and I’ve never been happier!) or stuck on the same old brand, you should definitely branch out and try L’Oreal Voluminous Million mascara, it’s worth the pocket change!
