Review: L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

Happy Monday/Thanksgiving week/Short week!!

Under review for today is L'Oreal's newest in the Voluminous line~ Million Lashes mascara, $8.99 at Walgreen's.

What it claims:
L'Oreal introduces New Voluminous¤ Million Lashes™ mascara, our most revolutionary collagen-infused formula and Millionizer Brush for amplified volume and definition.
Our No Clump Formula :
This luxurious, buildable formula amplifies each lash instantly. Glides on smoothly, and lasts all day, while thickening and separating every lash for clump-free flake-free, smudge-free look.
Our Millionizer Brush :
Uniquely designed to amplify and separate lashes from corner to corner while building breathtaking volume.
Our Clean Sweep Wiping System :
This built-in wiper ensures that just the right amount of formula is deposited on the brush for ultra-volumized, defined lashes.

WHOA. Ok, so this is going to be the BEST mascara yet, huh?



Let's take a look!!

Bare lashes:

With Million Lashes mascara:

Eewww it got on my lid =( Clean up!

With two coats:
(Bad idea with these molded brushes, but I thought hey, maybe it'll be more volumizing?)

Ok so let me start by saying, I HATE THIS MASCARA.

Reviewed based on what it claims:
No Clump Formula: You know, I'm not so sure it's the formula as much as the molded brush that helps with no clumping~ though, the formula is quite thin. Also~ I mean, it's not necessarily "clumpy," but doesn't something about my lashes just look... off?
Millionizer Brush: This brush is ok.. as before, it helps with no clumping, but I don't feel it really "grabbing" my lashes, and also it hits my lid and leaves marks. Meh.
Clean sweep wiper system: Okay- now THIS is the best part of the mascara! =) It wipes the brush to leave it with the perfect amount of mascara on the wand. Ee! I wish they would put this wiper on the original Voluminous~ then we might have perfection. ;)

Basically the formula is just too thin. It lengthens alright, but is quite disappointing in the volume department. Hrm. =\ Oh... and it smells weird, lol.. and the packaging is cheap.

If you're a fan of the original Voluminous, this will fall short. A lot of times I will say "Hey, if you find it on sale it's worth a shot if you're curious," but not for this one~ it's really a big waste of money.

Fail, L'Oreal.

Have you tried it? Want to? What mascara are you diggin' right now??

And some happiness, cause I hate to leave on a bad note!
I found some super fun sparkly shoes, and OPI's Sparkle-icious matches PERFECT! Hehe.

Until next time--
