After Dozens of Brands This is My Favorite with Just a Couple Gripes
Reviewed in the United States on July 20, 2018
At forty-something, I have used dozens of brands of mascara. ...From Mary Kay to Cover Girl. I have naturally long lashes, but I am blonde and fair. I need mascara to make my lashes pop. And, I swear this actually adds length onto your lashes. I refuse to get on the fake eyelash bandwagon. Frankly, it sounds like a pain. I don’t think I need them. At least, not with L’Orėal Voluminous Original Mascara.
I rediscovered this mascara a couple years ago. I had worn it as a young adult and somehow lost track of the brand. Never again! I get compliments when I wear it. I even get asked if my lashes are my own.
Criticisms? Sometimes it can come out of the bottle a little gloppy. I just keep a roll of paper towels in the bathroom. When it does look gloppy, I brush it lightly on the paper towel first to take off excess. Simple as that. Otherwise it goes on beautifully. The only other issue is this mascara is a booger to get off. A simple facial wipe may not do the trick without rubbing at your eyes too vigorously. Take it from someone my age, you don’t want to rub at your eyes. That’s how you end up with baggy eyelids and under eyes. Make sure you have eye remover makeup (I use either a cream based one or an organic liquid I found) with your facial tissues (I use Amazon’s Vitamin C wipes and love them). Just remember to take care of your skin after you take off your makeup. Put that moisturizer and under eye cream on before bed. If you do that and stay out of the sun without sunscreen, your face will thank you as you age. And, you will look even better with this mascara for years to come! I’d recommend this product. An added bonus is it’s so reasonable on Amazon.
