The inevitable happened. I caved and bought Volume Million Lashes So Couture from my favourite mascara brand ever - L'Oreal Paris. This brand never fails when it comes to mascara. Their products genuinely make your lashes look the best they can. There's not been one L'Oreal Mascara I've bought and been disappointed in, which is a statement in itself.
I've tried two mascaras from this line already - the original Volume Million Lashes, and the Excess Noir version. Both I would repurchase any day of the week and I'm happy to say this new product is no exception.
As usual, every product has it's unique selling point and this one is its formulation. Made with Silk, it aims to make your lashes less crispy and look fuller, while the plastic wand with small bristles coats every lash with the perfect amount of product, avoiding clumps.
After trying this product I could agree more with all of the above.
At first I was annoyed that they'd changed the brush was the Excess Noir brush was so incredible. However trial and error has proved that this style of wand is perfect for easy application too. I love that it separates my lashes so that they look natural and not spidery, but still has the volume and impact to give the desired full effect.
I can't say having non-cripsy lashes really makes a difference to my everyday life other than the fact that the product doesn't flake off at all. With long wear the Excess Noir mascara could flake a little towards the end of the day, especially in hot weather. But this new mascara with its silk formulation creates a look that lasts all day with no fall out.
I simply can't praise this product highly enough. L'oreal, you've smashed it again. Well done!
