The new L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara fluttered into my clutches earlier last week! Looks like L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara is starting to pop up in drugstores now as originally it had an early release at Walmart. I located mine at Harmons and recently saw a display at CVS as well.
Although I don’t have a great track record with L’Oreal Mascara I did want to check out Voluminous Butterfly Mascara for myself.
Here are my thoughts!
L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara comes equipped with a special wing tip brush which concentrates on the lashes towards the outer corner of your eye. This little winged tip pulls those shorter lashes upwards and out for a fluttery effect.
Doll-like lashes are a common trend in Asia and the US is just catching onto that look. Fluttery lashes can be very flattering plus a formula that’s lighter and doesn’t give lashes that dreaded stiff, crunchy texture is a plus. The general idea of this mascara is to provide a fluttery effect but also to pinpoint the lashes at the outer corners of your eyes giving them a winged out effect. The formula contains cocoon-like fibers that wrap around lashes for a flutter effect. Apparently the formula is supposed to act to extend lashes as well as voluminize them.
I’ve practiced quite a bit with this mascara and wasn’t completely impressed with the effects. It does give fairly good length and I’m really seeing the winged effect towards the outer corner of my lash line. The formula is heavier for something that promises fluttery lashes but does not make lashes stiff or crunchy. It has a fairly good wear without smearing or smudging throughout the day or flaking. I expected a bit more volume where as this produces more of a separated lash look with length. There’s some flutter here but the brush itself seems gimmicky to me as it ends up distributing more mascara towards the outer lash line but the inner lashes end up getting very little which results in shorter, spare, separated lashes towards the inner lash line and more length at the outer end. The could potentially look rather cool but as you can see it my before and after photos it isn’t really all that great a look and my lashes look a little sad and lacking towards the inner part of my eye.
If length, some flutter, and separated lashes are what you seek L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara will bring it. However, if you’re looking for volume, length, and a fluttery lash effect or even dramatic lashes, well, this isn’t bringing too much drama.
I just didn’t find anything special about this mascara….!
I look forward to hearing your thoughts if you tried it.
