I have been trying out several L’Oreal products recently, and today I will be reviewing one of their mascaras, the L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Excess Waterproof.
I have been using (and loving) Maybelline mascaras for a few years now, however I heard so much great stuff about L’Oreal mascaras & could not wait to give them a try.
Since the summer was coming up, I decided to opt for a waterproof mascara as I wanted my mascara to stay on all day, even on really warm (sweaty) days. At £10.99, this is one of the more expensive mascaras in the drugstore (as are most L’Oreal mascaras I noticed). However, I don’t mind paying a little bit extra for a mascara if it does it’s job well as great mascaras makes such a huge difference to any makeup look! Also, the packaging looks so pretty!
This mascara promises to separate lashes for a fanned-out effect and is made up of both short and long plastic bristles to coat each lash. Also, thanks to its ‘Excess Wiper’, the wand should have just the right amount of mascara on it each time you apply your mascara in order to prevent clumping.
Although I’m not normally a fan of plastic bristles (I’m looking at you, Maybelline The Rocket) I quite like this one since it has got both short and long bristles. It really helps to comb through the lashes to distribute the product evenly. I find that this mascara gives decent length and volume – it is not as dramatic as Maybelline The Falsies, however I think it comes pretty close. It holds a curl all day and also, thanks to it being waterproof it does not budge all day!
Here are some before & after shots:
Just like most other waterproof mascaras, the worst bit about this mascara is the removal part – however this is not something that some micellar water cannot deal with.
Overall, I think this is a great mascara and I would recommend it!
