L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Review


This mascara was something I had been wanting because the ad in my Glamour magazine with Gwen Stefani made it look awesome. I really like L'Oreal to be honest but had not purchased any of their mascaras in ages.  It comes in a pretty golden tube too!  If you see the pic above- the brush drawn in the back (kinda bluish) looks nothing like the brush itself!! So disappointed with that to begin with...


Second, I do like the fact that it's a very black mascara and gives my lashes volume just as it promises through it's name. One coat does a lot, but not enough if you're going for really dark or bold. Third comment on the mascara- I do NOT like the clumps. I noticed it the very first time I used it. Not only am I not too crazy about the brush, but it clumps my lashes!! I hate mascaras that do that- but will keep using it because I refuse to give up on it after a week's use. It was pricier than what I usually buy and that was a downer for me.


Below you will see the brush itself.  Not too bad, but not my favorite. It clumps my lashes and doesn't give me too much definition. At least not in my opinion. Yes, you will see looks with it for some time to come... I'm not too happy about that but I ditched my old mascara and until I find another good drug store one that I haven't tried yet- this is mascara.  Hope this was helpful- till next time!


If I had to rate it- I'd give it a 6.5/10. Yup. Not my favorite.

    1. It's my personal experience with it, I don't like discouraging anyone into not buying stuff- but I really think it's a let down and not worth the money. Thanks for reading! =-)

  2. I think that this a major problem with all Loreal mascaras, I have tried two and they both work great for volume but clump bad. Great blog :*

    1. You know what- you're right! It IS sticky! Come to think of it, I think it is the formula itself that clumps so bad. Maybe the brush isn't as bad but in combination they are no good! lol! Thanks for reading!

  4. Thanks for the review. I don't mind clumping so much but I hate dinky little brushes like this one. I think I'll stay away from this one although I do love other Loreal mascaras. :)

    1. This is not the greatest, but yes, the brush looks very different than they advertise it. A total let down! Thanks for reading!

  8. I've tried this one as well and it wasn't too bad, but it did clump a lot now that I think about it! I really like the original voluminous million lashes mascara. No clumping at all, it applies very clean. I think it would be worth a look for you. :)

  9. My lashes has never been too fond of the L'oreal mascaras so I kinda given up on all of them!
    But I don't think it looks too bad on your lashes though!
