L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Nior Excess

If there is one makeup product that I get through like no other, its mascara. I don’t know if it’s just me but honestly I feel like I’m buying a new one every two or three weeks. I have do a fair amount of mascara reviews on my blog and the majority of them are good but what tends to happen me is I buy a mascara use it for a week fall madly in love with it think it’s the bees knees and then within the next week it has dried out and I no longer enjoy using it. It happens every single one except my holy grail Benefit They’re Real mascara but with me saving for the USA at the end of May I really don’t have the money to be spending on mascara so I have been on the hunt, and girlies I think I may have found it.

This is what the L'Oreal website claims about this mascara;

"The brand new anti-clump wiper removes surplus mascara: no overload, no clumps. Our biggest ever Millionizer brush separates lashes for dramatic volume. Finally, opulent volume meets sleek definition!"

Having already tried the L'Oreal telescopic and the extra volume collagen I didn't have particularly high expectations of this but I was persuaded to buy it due to its ‘brand new anti-clump wiper’ designed to remove excess mascara to provide a clump free application. This intrigued me as I thought all mascaras pretty much had an ‘anti-clump wiper’ in the form of a narrow neck that pulls off the extra mascara as the brush is squeezed through it? Obviously I was wrong.

The wand is bendy, thin and long. I usually like the bigger brushes but they tend to be hard to get to the root of the lashes and the thinner brush means I can get the brush into the roots and inner corners.

The application was very easy, even small lashes were coated after one sweep, and clumps were far and few between.  It has that ‘glossy’ texture that leaves the lashes looking really healthy. One of my biggest problems with drug store (and some high end) mascaras is the flaking throughout the day. This was not an issue with million lashes excess, even after applying first thing in the morning it was still intact at the end of the day in exactly the right place with no fall off under my eyes which is a major bonus with me because often I tend to forget I’m wearing makeup and rub my eyes and this normally results in big black panda eyes but not with this absolute gem.

I also loved that even with two coats my eyelashes still feel flexible, there is none of that glued together crispy feeling.

The price is really reasonable, £10.99 and I must admit this is actually me second tube now and I can see myself repurchasing again.

Have you tried the Volume Million Lashes mascara, do you enjoy using it as much as I do?
