Hi beauty babes! This evening I wanted to talk to you all about mascara, one that I have been particularly loving - L'Oreal's Volume Million Lashes in Extra-Black. Now when it comes to buying mascara I've never been a fussy one, I tend to buy whats on offer and over the past year or so I've never fallen in love with a mascara so much so that I've said to myself 'as soon as this runs out, I need to repurchase this immediately' until now that is.
As a little stocking filler for Christmas I received two tubes of L'Oreal's Volume Million Lashes and I have to say I am so impressed, I'm now on my second tube and know as soon as this runs out, I'll be off to repurchase it immediately. When it comes to mascara, I sway towards ones that add volume, rather than lengthen as I like that to have that false lash effect. As you have probably guessed by the name L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes is all about adding volume and I love how thick and full my lashes look after application. Although Volume Million Lashes formula is to provide a lot of volume I also find that it does an excellent job at adding more length to your lashes too, which in my opinion is a great bonus - Who doesn't love a bit of volume and length! In the pictures below I've only applied one coat and as you can see the mascara has separated my lashes wonderfully, added plenty of volume and lengthened them all with minimal amount of clumping.
As for application, I find L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes really easy to apply - The wand is a plastic brush, usually I prefer a bristle bush as I find they make for a better application and plastic brushes can tend to be a bit on the flimsy side; but this plastic brush seams to glide though your lashes with ease. The actual brush for me is the perfect size, not too big, not too small and I love how the brush thins down towards the end, so you can coat all those little lashes in the corner. L'Oreal claims that the brush is designed to create a lovely fanned out lash look and I couldn't agree more. The little bristles on this brush perfectly coat each lash, and its this fanned out look which gives your lashes bundles of volume. What makes the L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes stand out from other mascaras is the fact that the wand has been designed to avoid that awful clumping look some mascaras can give you - Volume Million Lashes has 'in-build excess wiper' which remove any excess mascara on your wand, which means you get the right amount of mascara per lash. I also find that this mascara does last a lot longer than your average mascara and can only presume that it's down to this clump free wand.
As for packaging L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes outer-casing doesn't particularly excite me, but it does look pretty sleek and has that 'expensive' look with its black and shiny gold tube. Like most drugstore mascara's it's around the £10 mark, and sells for £10.99 from Boots. Normally I begrudge spending anything over £10 when it comes to mascara just because I think they are getting ridiculously over priced, but I've fallen in love with the Volume Million Lashes so much that I'm willing to spend those extra few pounds just to have beautiful volumised lashes.
I feel that the finished look that Volume Million Lashes gives you comes pretty close to the results that a high end mascara would give you and would recommend this to anyone who is wanting to try a high end mascara but not wanting to pay double the amount. Overall I love this mascara and I see it soon becoming a little bit of a Holy Grail beauty item for me.
Have you tried L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes, if so I would love to know your thoughts.
Lot's of Love
