Recently when I was on the look out for a new mascara I came across the L’Oreal Voluminous Feline Noir mascara. Without reading any reviews or hearing anything about it, I picked it up. This mascara claims to give ‘instant volume and full lash density’. So, does it live up to the claims?
I’ve tried a few of the ‘Volume Million’ mascaras from L’Oreal and really like what they did for my lashes so hoped I would not be disappointed with the new range.
On first impressions, the brush seemed to get rid of the excess product which I’m a huge fan of. I hate having to wipe the sides of the brush on the side of the tube because it’s picked up too much product. The brush itself is plastic rather than fibers which I tend to prefer. But, I didn’t want this to put me off or cloud my judgement!
The mascara itself applied really nicely to my lashes and it didn’t make them appear clumpy and I saw added length to my lashes from the first coat. I did wait for the first coat to dry slightly before adding another and it worked wonders!
The mascara created added volume instantly! It definitely gave the impression I had more lashes than I really do. I did have to work the wand into the corner lashes, as the brush didn’t catch these but that wasn’t much of an issue.
Throughout the day the product lasted well on my lashes and I didn’t get any black fall down or smudging which I sometimes get with other mascaras. At the end of the day, the mascara came off easily with my cleansing oil and didn’t need me to scrub and tug at my eyes to remove it – always a bonus!
All in all, I would definitely say to pick up this mascara! It lives up to its claims. I’m looking forward to adding this to my everyday make up line up and seeing how well it works over the coming weeks. I’ll be sure to keep you posted.
