First of all, what is this mascara called? I had to look online, cause I was SURE this must be a fiber mascara, but as I threw away the package as soon as I opened it, I wasn't sure. So I looked online under the name below, and what I found was Voluminous False Fiber Lashes, and I even found the box which says the same, yet my tube doesn't say that. Maybe there are different names for the same product. I don't know, lol!
Anywhoo, I got this product about a week ago. L'oreal was having a promotion on their facebook page where they were sending out free full size samples....score! I love free samples! I was actually shocked to see that it was full size, as I've seen these in the store, and they retail for somewhere around $10 or $11.
The tube is weird and angular, don't care for it.
The brush though, ahh I love it! I tried to show it, but it's got kinda a helix shape to it.
It's also got a tapered tip like one of my all time favorite mascara's Lash Stiletto by Maybelline. (Lash Stiletto on the left)
AND, the brush is at a slight angle, which I love as well.
As I mentioned above, I threw away the packaging before I read what this mascara is supposed to do, but since it's a fiber mascara, I'm going to assume it's supposed to be lengthening. Well I haven't experienced that as you can tell by my stubby lashes above.
But I do find it very voluminous like the name indicates. It separates my lashes well without leaving them clumpy. You will notice a few little clumps at the tips of my lashes, as I'm usually a three coat mascara-er, I usually just pick the little clumps off.
All in all, I really love this mascara. I would definitely buy it again. As some of you might know if you read my blog, I don't buy high end mascara. To me, there is just no need to spend $20-$30 dollars on a mascara when you can find nice alternatives for half the price. In my day, I have purchased high end mascaras, thinking they would be "better" because of the price, but I have never tried a high end mascara I actually liked. So what I'm trying to say is, don't be a mascara snob! You really can find a cheaper mascara for your needs!
Anyone else score this freebie?
