Truth be told, I am an eye girl. While I rarely where lipstick and hate cakey foundation, I absolutely adore big, bold eyes! I rely on good eyeliner and great mascara to achieve the look I desire, but sadly, many types of mascara fall short for me and leave my lashes either looking clumpy or barely give any coverage to speak of. Thank goodness for L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara, . It delivers and delights in every way possible. Here’s the breakdown:
Formula: I chose the waterproof formula because of my watery eyes. This formula gave great coverage that lasted through my 12+ hour day and on through the night. Even after committing the beauty sin of sleeping in my makeup, my lashes still looked beautiful in the AM.
Promise vs. Reality: This mascara promises to produce longer and fuller lashes, while giving you that winged, butterfly look. While I’m not sure that my lashes appeared more “winged”, they certainly did appear both thicker and longer without looking fake or clumpy.
Color/Coverage: I chose the shade blackest black, but the mascara also comes in regular black as well as black brown. While I was a bit skeptical about the shade being any darker than a regular black, by the second coat I could really tell a difference. As far as coverage goes, because I love super thick lashes I went for three coats; however, you could easily go with one or two coats and still have lashes that pop.
So there you have it. If you’re looking for mascara that provides length, volume, great coverage, and dramatic color all in one, look no further than your local drug store and get stocked up now!
