I love testing new mascaras but I find myself running back to L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara time and again. It’s like one of those relationships where you have been together so long and end up breaking up to “see what else is out there.” Inevitably, 2 weeks later you come running back to the one you know has been right for you since the start. This is how it is with me and Voluminous. It has everything I need in a mascara, and it does the job right.
I’m not a huge fan of spending tons of money on a mascara (for personal use). I use it everyday, and I’ve got a lot of lashes, so shelling out $25 every 3 weeks for a new tube is not something I’m into. At only about $8 in almost any drugstore, L’Oreal Voluminous not only cheap but it works!
L’Oreal Voluminous gives thickness, separation and length in only 2 coats. It is my go-to mascara for most jobs. If I need a little less drama, I apply it with a fan brush. It doesn’t clump and I have never had a problem with smudging or flaking. It’s one of the consistent mascaras that I see in other artist’s kits as well.
Their new shade is called Carbon Black and it is fantastic. It’s advertised as a “shade blacker than black” and I haven’t even bothered with the other colors since this came out. They also finally came out with a waterproof version! L’Oreal has all the bases covered.
