L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Diamonds Mascara is a newly launched rendition of the original Voluminous formula with an injection of “diamond sparkle” for the Holidays.
I really dig sparkly mascara around the Holidays. It could be dubbed juvenile but I think a little sparkle on lashes during the holiday season keeps makeup festive. However, I wrote off L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Diamonds Mascara before I even tried it since the original formula did nothing for my lashes…
However, diamond sparkle is so bloody tempting isn’t it?
L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes really sounds like some sort of epic mascara. When you throw around words like “Million Lashes” you’d expect some crazy result after use.
Yeah, great marketing, now if it only worked. But as typical with most L’Oreal Mascaras I try this is just a sore disappointment.
Don’t expect sparkly lashes as the formula is indeed laced with a hint of shimmer but this isn’t easily detected on lashes unless you get a magnifying glass and hold it up to your eye. The effect is truly non existent so if you’re heading into the purchase believing your lashes will have a bit of sparkle after use, don’t bother, it doesn’t technically work and the finish is simply that of a black mascara sans shimmer or sparkle of any kind.
The mascara itself is sadly lacking as well. It comes with a round plastic applicator with a straight non curved design. The formula is quite lightweight so it doesn’t leave lashes crunchy or stuff after application however, the lightness of the formulation could be blamed for the lack of drama after application. It promises thicker lashes however it delivers more of a separated spiked out look. Your lashes might appear a bit longer but the brush separates lashes so much that it gives a spare lash look rather than a fuller one.
Lucky enough I only paid $7.99 as I believe the original formula I paid $12 for. If I paid that I’d be terribly pissed to say the least. Sparkle nay, length a little, volume, nope….total score…zero.
The sparkle shouldn’t tempt you into a purchase as it doesn’t show up and the mascara itself is just blah. I’m not impressed.
Did love it?
