Review: L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara

Mascara is a must in every makeup routine. Not only does it make your eyes pop but it also help define your lashes! I have tried lots of mascara and by far I am loving the Maybelline The Falsies and the Kiss Me Heroine Volume & Curl Mascara. 

I was given the opportunity to try out a new mascara from L'Oreal. I have never try L'Oreal mascara before so this will be my first time. 

Want to hear my thoughts on it?

L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara
Suggest Retail: $8.95
I saw lots of reviews on different blog and this mascara is either a hit or miss for some people. This mascara has a fiber formula that adheres to lashes for a volumized, sculpted effect. It claims that lashes will appear fuller, longer, sculpted and curled at every angle.

To me, this is a bit of a miss product. The formula of this mascara is much drier than most mascara formula I used before.  L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara dried pretty quickly after one coat so you have to apply the second coat right after the first one. I still think that after two coats, my lashes start getting clumpy and I am definitely not happy about this.

As for lengthening, it does an okay job but not too much. I love how this mascara make my lashes look fuller and volumized. I think that's the only thing I love about this mascara.

(Sorry for the terrible mascara application)
I experienced flake fall out when you try to  touch the lashes after mascara application and I am not happy about that. As you know, I wear contact and once a while I have to reapply eye drop to keep my contact moist especially when the heater is turn on. Since this is not a water-proof formula, it does smudge a little when eye drop touches the lashes. 

The packaging is definitely very chic and modern for a drugstore mascara! It has an angular shape tube and the brush is pretty long. If the brush was a bit shorter, it would be much easier for me to apply the mascara.

This fiber mascara is really dry and even though it didn't smudge much during the day I am wearing, which is around 5+ hours. 

I don't think I will purchase this and would consider using back my two favorite mascara, which has a better formula.

Rating: 2/5

Would I recommend? No

 L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara is available is most mass retailer and drugstores across the country.

  1. Aw, thats shame, this mascara sounded interesting too.It does look like it lengthens your lashes..too bad it clumped after the first application >o< Xx

  2. @Amy From the packaging it does look great but too bad it has a bad and dry formula!

  3. Aw, that sucks it didn't work for you :/ I haven't tried this one before, but I have the original one without the fibers. I normally like Loreal mascaras, but I noticed their mascaras are getting huge LOL

  4. @Rainy Days and Lattes Yea it suck:( I wish they focus more on the formula rather than the packaging:)

  5. Wow, that's a shame. The packaging looks so pretty but I don't like dry mascaras, I prefer mascaras that look glossy and leave me enough time to apply a second coat. Won't bother trying this one, thanks for the warning! Glad I found you through the Tuesday Beauty Blog Hop :)

  6. I didn't like this very much either. I will use up my tube but I won't repurchase or recommend this mascara. Very disappointing, I think the Voluminous Carbon Black actually does a better job than this one!

  7. @Mina Slater I like glossy formula too! It's better than dry one like this one!

  8. @G A B Y Yes I agree! I really don't like this mascara at all!

  9. sucks to hear it's a miss, but then again I don't use mascara (often) coz i wear contacts.. no matter what mascara i use, it always flakes into my eyes T^T At least you got an opportunity to try this and see whether u liked it! thanks for the review again :D

  10. @Jen I don't wear mascara often too~Haha~

  11. omg what kind of lens you use? it looks like anime. lol XD
    I don't really like this mascara too, I've try it once on the counter >.<

  12. @cominica I'm wearing Hana 30 Days Athena Brown:)
