L’Oreal has released a new mascara that uses a combination of nylon and rayon fibers to create additional volume and length. L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara advertises that is offers extra length, volume, and curling, with a long lasting and flake free formula. I was sent a tube of the mascara to try, and I found it to be a rather interesting product. It is great for all day wear, length, and curl.
First off, this mascara is a bit different from a standard mascara, and I am glad that I read a few other reviews of it before I tried it, because that allowed me to use it right and get good results right from the start. In particular, several bloggers noted that the mascara would tend to clump, especially if you wipe the brush first. Being a rather compulsive brush wiper myself, I took that to heart. So I tested the mascara two ways. On one eye I wiped the brush and applied as I normally would. On the other I did not wipe the brush and applied it a bit carefully to avoid clumps. Sure enough, the wiped brush did clump some for me, but I got very nice results when I applied the mascara straight from the tube and was careful to go easy with it, especially on the first coat.
The brush is slightly angled and you can see a fibrous appearance in it when it is loaded:
When applied correctly, I got a very nice look with this mascara. The first thing I noted was that it curls better than almost any mascara I have ever used. I could happily use this without curling my lashes first. It also gives nice length with good definition as long as you are careful. But if you try to apply this quickly or put on a second coat too soon, it will clump. In general though, this one also tends to look pretty good with just one coat, so you can avoid issues by simply carefully applying a single coat.
The mascara wore very well for me. I had no issues with flaking or smudging and was perfectly comfortable wearing this with my contact lenses. It also lasted all day. Overall, I would probably buy this one for the good wear time and curling effect and I do recommend it. Just don’t apply it too quickly or too thick.
