The Mascara Project-March (featuring L’Oreal Paris mascaras)

I have a lot of makeup…or rather I have no shortage of makeup. Obvious, yes?

I am incredibly excited to add what I hope to be an interesting series on my blog….The Mascara project.  You see, I love mascara.  I love it to the point that I stopped getting lash extensions.  I love applying it, I love how it looks-I’m sure you get the picture.

So I’ve decided that every month starting NOW, I’ll be reviewing a different brand of mascara.  This month, it’s L’Oreal Paris-who just happens to make some of my very favorites.  I’ve decided to review one mascara a week and while I do feel a tad guilty about not using one mascara until it’s finished, I’ve decided I will just work these into my weekly basket rotation (go to my YouTube channel people!).

Here’s what I’m using this month:

I’ll be starting off with Voluminous Power 24H Black Smoke.  According to the package this mascara produces a smokey matte lash.  I’m interested to see what that is exactly…..


Stay tuned for a review at the end of the week!

    L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black is one of my all time faves. But I have found other L’oreal mascaras have a smell that I cant stand:)

      @Sara Hmmmm, you aren’t the first person to tell me that (about the smell). I didn’t notice anything with this mascara but I wasn’t necessarily putting my nose close to it. I’ll have to circle back and check for “fragrance.”

    I’m interested to see what it looks like too…smoky matte??? hmm..

    • meredith

      @Kelly it’s definitely different than a “standard” mascara. I really do like it.

    Carbon Black and Million Lashes are my favourite! Both are staples in my kit.

      @Anna I am trying carbon black this week. I like it so far!
