L’Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara in Extra Black: Review

Mascara‘s are a  big essential in my daily routine. Thanks to the late night working and lack of sleep, in the morning my eyes barely open so obviously if I am all dolled up with makeup, tired eyes do ruin the whole look. That is when the mascara wand which is no less effective than a magic wand comes to my rescue by opening up eyes, making them look bigger and fresh.
In the rainy season you are always advised to go for waterproof makeup and the same goes for the mascara so to ensure that I don’t end up looking like a panda at the end of the day, I decided to try the L’Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara. How did fare…read on to find out 🙂
Price: Rs 700 for 9 ml.
The L’Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes mascara comes in a classy gold and black fat tube.The wand is attached to the gold cap. The bristles of the wand are really short, strong and fine and thus they  separates the lashes well. However just like the tube, the brush is also a little fat so when you use it to apply mascara to the lower lash lines you have to be a little patient other wise the mascara transfers to the lower eye area.

The mascara is not heavy in weight and thus does not weight down my lashes. It also has a tendency to dry really fast. The short and strong bristles help in separating out the lashes and also lengthening them. The staying power is fantastic and it stays in place the whole day. The only issue I face with it is that it clumps a little but then that is because it dries up fast and  you can easily solve this issue using a lash comb.

Unlike other water proof mascaras that I have tried, this one is the best when it comes to removal. I don’t face any issues cleaning my lashes using a makeup remover. However it also does not live up to the claim of being water proof.
The good things about the product:
  • Sturdy packaging
  • Strong, small bristles that separate and lengthen your eye lashes
  • Doesn’t weigh down your lashes
  • Dries up fast
  • Stays put the whole day
  • Can be removed easily
The not so good things about the product:
  • The wand is too aft so creates problem when you are applying mascara to the lower lash line
  • Clumps a little
  • Not water proof
  • A little expensive
My final verdict is that it is definitely a great mascara if you are  looking for something to open up your lashes and create an illusion of length.The clumping is a minor problem,however don’t buy it if you want a 100% waterproof mascara as this one is definitely not it.
