The Mascara Project-week 2 results (yes, late)L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Carbon Black

L’Oreal Paris sent me this mascara for review….I am not paid to review!  My opinion is mine, I own it!

This mascara is a cult favorite for a reason.  I won’t say too much about it other than I absolutely loved it.  It’s a performance based love:

A great big brush and formula that delivers:

Results? Nothing but gorgeous….

I will be descending upon my local HG drugstores and Walmart scouring the shelves for the waterproof version of this…is there such an item?  That’s my only “con” -that it isn’t waterproof!

 

 

The Mascara Project week 3 results L’Oreal Waterproof mascara.WHOAH-I never posted second week results!

I purchased this mascara with my own funds and am not compensated to like or hate it!

Wow. Can’t believe I didn’t post about the 2nd week results.  I thought that was kind of weird when I saw a lot of photos in my camera.  Usually I snap a pic, import and delete!

Yikes!  So a mark against me then.  I will have to go back and do a post about week 2….which was the carbon black voluminous.  geeeeez.

In the meantime, here is week 3 results.  I actually threw away the package for this mascara and have no idea what this mascara is called.  Either way, I was NOT impressed. L’Oreal, I expected more…..

This is my first waterproof mascara from L’Oreal.  My favorite waterproof at the moment is Essence 24h stays no matter what but I won’t get too much into that as I have gone on and on about it already several times.  I just didn’t appreciate this mascara.

The packaging is “Classic L’Oreal” and the brush is a bit of the same.  I did notice upon first opening the product, that it was a bit clumpy on the brush.

I wanted to like this mascara so much! L’Oreal makes great mascaras, but this is a ‘miss’ for me.  Why, you ask?

Well…..

1. Putting it on required a ton of effort for less than stellar results

2.  Tons of transfer on my browbone

3. In order to get my lashes the deepest darkest black , I would most likely have to apply the entire tube.

It just wouldn’t apply properly for me-look at that application!

SAD FACE.

Suffice it to say that I do not recommend this mascara, whatever it’s called…..

Next up?  Voluminous False Fiber mascara-and I’m not a fan of fiber mascaras either so I’m not expecting this to bode well.

 

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!
