I was super pumped when I saw this mascara was coming on the market. Given my lovely experience with VML (the original) I had to get my hands on the next gen. After stalking Walgreens and Target for what seemed like ages, Voluminous Million Lashes Excess finally arrived.
Great brush with the plastic bristles that I love so much for separating to coat and creating lots of drama. I have to be honest… I was a bit disappointed because I was hoping for more. This formula feels a bit heavier than the first VML and therefore does more thickening than give you any lengthening at all. I would buy it if you need to really thicken what you already have- def a worthwhile purchase!
I love mascara! It is my absolute favorite piece of makeup, and if stranded on a dessert island and only allowed one piece of makeup it would have to be a tube of mascara. However, don’t ask me to tell you which tube it would be as that’s too hard to figure out. So many excellent choices!
Speaking of excellent choices, lets check out Loreal’s Telescopic Explosion Mascara. I was totally skeptical of this mascara because the brush is a round spiky ball. A first for me. Boy was I in for a surprise! There is magic in this little ball! For whatever reason, when you position the want vertically and brush against your lashes, the lashes come alive. It’s almost like… your lashes explode in length and thickness! Who would have thunk it.
No flakes late in the day either. The folks at Loreal ALWAYS know what they are doing with mascara, from their drugstore brands to prestige brands like Lancome.
I might suggest that you avoid using the want horizontally as that would make my lashes all clumpy and gross.
Oh how I love me some mascara.
On a recent trip to Walgreens, my friend Chrissy and I were approached by a sales person regarding a L’Oreal promotion for the Voluminous Million Lashes mascara. Buy one get the second half off. Well I don’t mind if I do! So Chrissy (of Ruby & Caroline style blog) handed over a few bucks and we were on our way!
Ironically, I noticed a few beauty blogs mention this mascara and once again was excited to see what all the fuss was about. Hello SUPER long lashes! My friend actually stopped me in the middle of yoga class to ask what mascara I was wearing because they were longer than usual.
There’s something so magical about the way this brush was designed; it smoothly applies the mascara to each individual lash without clumping. Two factors that always go far for me. Chrissy agrees wholeheartedly, however we both would have enjoyed a bit more thickening power from the mascara. I have never seen a mascara lengthen the way Voluminous Million Lashes did, so this will certainly stay in my beauty bag.
