Since I'm a blogger I rely on other bloggers and their personal experiences with makeup, after all who wants to buy something that smells terrible or is inadequate? Not I! Once I bought Maybellines Colossal Mascara and man did it stink! I swear it smells like dead roses, but I don't know it could be me. The Colossal its self was a nice mascara that separated your lashes and made them look nice. But can't say that I was overly impressed by it, plus I couldn't get over the smell!
Anyways, I looked checked out multiple sites for a favorite drugstore mascara. Multiple girls said they loved the L'Oreal Voluminous Original mascara. Off to the store I went, and I got the original formula like the girls had, in the color blackest black. Here is what the mascara claims and what I found:
- Voluminous® Volume Building Mascara is uniquely formulated to resist clumping, soften and build lashes up to 5X their natural thickness. The unique maximizing formula quickly thickens and builds lashes in a single application for a full and dramatic look. The Volume Maximizing Brush thickens lashes evenly and smoothly, leaving them soft with virtually no flakes, smudges or clumps. Clump-resistant. Fragrance-free. Ophthalmologist-tested and allergy-tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
- Did it stand up to the claims? I believe so! I really like the formula and how smooth and creamy it is. Applying with the wand is easy and the mascara goes on really well. I don't have to keep applying to try and make my lashes look thicker. I love that it doesn't flake or smudge. Also, the wand itself is curved so it spreads your lashes instead of clumping them together. I can't say that I agree with the suitable for sensitive eyes and contacts because I'm neither of those. I also got the waterproof formula and FREAKING LOVE IT! It doesn't come off in water or the ocean, only with makeup remover. Huge plus for me!
So if your in the market for a new mascara or simply want to try something new I would recommend this brand! Let me know if you've used this mascara and how you feel about it!
