L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara Review

Hi Bellas,

I recently had the opportunity to try out a new mascara - L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara. When I first saw the product, I liked its sleeked packaging and clean look. Then, when I took out the brush I was impressed by its huge bristles. I thought that this mascara might have potential.

I turned to my good friend/guest reviewer Melissa for help. She's an avid mascara user where as I only use it when I do makeup on weekends. Check out her review!


pros:
- it definitely volumizes eyelashes
- it also lengthens them
- it gives a thick and full eyelash look
- it does not smudge or smear even after working out - cardio and sweating
- easy to take off with make up remover
- handle is easy to hold
- i like the sleek, shiny look of the tube

cons:
- it gets a bit clumpy on the wand after 4-5 uses. However, when I took off the excess with a tissue, the mascara glided on my eyelashes much easier.
- since the mascara is somewhat thick, I am thinking maybe because of the collagen content, you have to be meticulous when applying or it will clump up a little. You have to consciously use the wand so that it goes across the eyelashes evenly. But once you do that, it looks great!
Take a look at the before and after. The eye on the left has mascara and the eye on the right does not. Click on the pics to expand.
Here she is with mascara on both eyes, look at those lashes! Even in person I could tell she had longer, more fuller lashes than usual.
Check it out in the cosmetics aisle of your local drugstore. Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

I actually didn't like this mascara at all. It gave me spider leg looking lashes, haha. It clumped super bad for me too. But it looks lovely on your friend!

I bought this stuff about a week ago and I am not happy at all! It goes on clumpy and makes my lashes look short. Throughout the day it flakes and falls into my eyes!! OUCH!!! I have tried wiping the brush. Maybe I bought two old tubes or something. I will be returning both and trying another mascara. Usually Walgreens has stellar products...........
