I feature a lot of high end brands, but my favourite mascaras — 9 times out of 10 — can be found at the drugstore. It’s definitely a “save” item for me instead of “splurge.” You’ll see why.
L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Black Lacquer Mascara
L’Oreal is famous for their Voluminous mascara, and the new release — Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Black Lacquer ($11.99) — meets my lashes’ expectations and more. The mascara promises to provide a “vinyl-sheen, creating lashes that are ultra-black, ultra-glossy and ultra-outrageous.”
L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Black Lacquer Mascara – Wand
I think this is an incredible mascara. These days I’m all about lots of lashes: volumized, lengthy and separated. This relaxes the curl from my lash curler a bit, but considering the amount of volume I get from this mascara, I’d say it is pretty weightless. Other volumizing mascaras would’ve left my lashes dead straight.
L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Black Lacquer Mascara – Before / After
One thing that is very obvious about this mascara is how black it is. Like, really black. The brush does a great job distributing the product and coating each lash fat and glossy, while still keeping them non-spidery. I love it. I do get minor smudging with this along my lower lash line at the end of the day, but it’s nowhere near raccoon eyes-ville and I am totally fine with that!
