Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for August 14th, 2011

I wanted to get a replacement of the Diorshow mascara sample, and drugstore mascara was my primary choice. I was just being price-oriented and without thinking much, I got this L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes – Extra Black for €10 at Etos pharmacy in Netherlands. After all, I do have some confidence in L’Oreal mascara, not to say their discontinued Lancome Definicils mascara used to be my favorite.

The product label did not give much information, literally I could only recognize English word “Volume Million Lashes – Extra Black” on the product label. There were several versions of this mascara at the store but only “Extra Black” was having promotion at the time of purchase.

L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes claiming volumize and millionize lashes, inside the mascara tube it contains an excess wiper to remove excess mascara, thus no overload, no clumps.

The mascara wand is bendable and having soft bristles. I personally did not find any technically difference with unbendable wand for application.

This is non-waterproof, it can easily be removed by water. As circled in white in above attached picture (after removing the mascara by water),  you can see the mascara contains very fine shimmering particles. It normally “smudge-proof” since my eye area is quite drying however when skin became oilier it would smudged a little on the lower lashes. In fact, I would not purchase if I know it is non-waterproof beforehand because I felt more secure  with waterproof one.

(I did not use eyelash curler for the testing pictures)

Minimum lengthening and volumizing, slightly up-lifting, well seperating.

 (before) In initial usage, the excess wiper seemed to be useless, the mascara still overload and created a clumpy look.

(after) After several usage, the mascara became more drying, no more clumpy


As I have naturally spare and short lashes, almost all mascaras able to enhance my eyelashes. I quite liked the “feathery” eyelashes  by this L’Oreal Volume Million Lashesn but ignored this mascara after a month because the mascara became rather drying. Looking for new mascara now.

Rating: ….)))        Satisfied. Will not buy again.
