I’ve been using either Too Faced Better Than Sex or Urban Decay’s Perversion Mascara for quite a while now and while I love them both, I’m trying really really hard to spend less on makeup. I don’t mind spending more on an eyeshadow palette or powder that I know I can still use a year from now… but an opened tube of mascara should be replaced every three months, so I am on the hunt for a cheaper alternative, starting with L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara in Blackest Black.
- Revolutionary collagen-infused formula and Millionizer Brush for amplified volume and definition
- Thickens and separates for a clump-free, smudge-free look
- Millionizer Brush is uniquely designed to amplify and separate lashes from corner to corner while building breathtaking volume
- Built-in Clean Sweep Wiping System wipes the brush free of clumps, leaving the perfect amount of mascara for an ultra-volumized clean lash look
- Fragrance free
- Ophthalmologist-tested and allergy-tested
- Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers
I’m a huge fan of the packaging – the gold is what caught my eye as I was wandering down the makeup aisle. The ‘Millionizer Brush’ does a great job of grabbing and coating all of my lashes, and the ‘Clean Sweet Wiping System’ really does leave the perfect amount of clump-free mascara. My lashes are pretty sparse so volumizing is what I really need, and I had hoped that with it being in the name… I’d see some. They definitely look longer, but there is zero volumizing going on. It’s perfect for barely-there makeup days, but I need more for everyday use. I’ve tried applying more than one coat, but my lashes become crunchy and the mascara starts to flake off throughout the day.
I also have to disagree with the ‘fragrance free’ claim. It has a bit of a floral scent to it, which I don’t have an issue with but if you have a sensitivity to fragrances then this might bother you. For $12.99 this isn’t a bad mascara, it just isn’t what I was hoping for. I’ll continue to use this until it runs out, but then the search for my new HG drugstore mascara continues!
