I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: new mascaras are my favourite thing to test out. While I have my two favourites, I’m always on the hunt for a new one to add to my favourites.
Most recently I picked up the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara. The packaging looks so pretty and I love that it has a primer in one end, making it two products for me to try.
First off, I accidentally purchased this in the shade ‘Black Brown’, which was such a disappointment. I’m someone who likes the blackest mascara I can find, so ultimately, I’m not impressed with the colour of this, though it is my own fault.
With it being brown, I opt to use this on ‘no makeup’ makeup days as it’s quite natural looking on my lashes. Not what I had intended to use it for, but at least this way I’m getting some use out of it.
There is a primer on one end and the mascara on the other, which I kind of like. My mom swears by lash primer, but I honestly forget to use it most days. My Lancôme lash primer is often a forgotten step, so the fact that this mascara has one built right in makes it a perfect choice for me.
The curved wand coats my lashes effortlessly without applying too much product. It doesn’t clump or smudge on me, which is great.
While it gave me added volume, it doesn’t look too over the top. This wouldn’t be my go-to mascara for a smoky eye or when I want to add a lot of drama to my lashes, but it works well for more natural looking makeup when I want a bit more volume.
Have you tried out this mascara before? What did you think of it?
