L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara Review

I bought this mascara about a week ago because I was running out of my Estee Lauder Projectionist, which I love but it's too expensive to keep re-purchasing.

 I find most drugstore mascaras I've tried are too dry and clumpy looking and always flake off by the end of the day but L'oreal have fairly decent ones, they are at the higher end of the drugstore mascaras. So I thought I'd give them a go and got Volume Million Lashes because I liked the look of the brush. It cost me around £11 in Boots.

The brush is a good size, and very lightweight. It's quite big but not overly so. I really don't like huge mascara wands. I once bought Max Factor's False Lash Effect and couldn't use it at all because the brush was so huge! 

Volume Million Lashes has also a no-clumps brush and as you take the wand out of the tube it takes off the excess product so you don't end up with clumpy lashes, which is what attracted me to it.

This mascara separates my lashes nicely, I don't get any clumps at all and it makes my lashes look pretty long. I wouldn't say it's amazingly volumising, you'd have to put a few coats on to get really big lashes. I like the ammount of volume it gives though, for me it's just enough without looking over the top. You can build up to bigger lashes and it still won't clump.

The mascara doesn't flake off either and another problem I have had with mascaras is that they can irritate my eyes. This doesn't do that at all.

I also really like the black and gold packaging, it's nice and classy.

All in all I like this mascara, it's a good replacement for my Projectionist :)

  5. Oooh. I like the wand on that. I find that wands like that coat my teeny tiny eyelashes a lot better than ones that are differently shaped or whatever. I'm your new follower!
