Curled Lashes, no mascara


Two Coats Voluminous Mascara

Normally, I am not one to use a black-brown mascara. To be honest I didn’t even realize this was one until after I applied it and thought it looked softer than normal mascaras look on me. My lashes are naturally fairly light- the picture above doesn’t show very well, but they kinda have a gradient, they are darker at the root and a light brown at the tips. I have to say I liked the way the black brown looked as an everyday mascara for me. I’m used to doing over the top makeup, and of course the darkest mascara possible is best for that, but this had a nice, im-wearing-mascara-but-not-over-the-top look to it.

As for the formula, I liked the curved brush because it made it easier to coat all the lashes easier. I wouldn’t say that this made my lashes 4x thicker, but It did soften them, so to speak- they didn’t feel crazy hard and unmoveable like some mascaras can leave the lashes, after the mascara dried it did feel like I could run the brush through again without creating spider lashes.

This retails around $7.30, but varies by location.

    i find that this mascara leaves mascara flakes alllll over my cheeks by the end of the day. I never reach for this one

    I don’t own any loreal products because they don’t have anything that really stands out except for their foundations that I’m hoping I can try soon. I do need to buy some more mascaras so I think I will pick this one up also and try it out. My eyelashes aren’t even in length so I hope this mascara doesn’t let it show too much as some others do.

    Its so crazy to see the up close shots of your eye with and without mascara. Its kinda freaking me out ha. Btw. Leesha, are you going to IMATS in LA?

    It looks a little clumpy in the picture. Did it look that way to you in real life?

    This is the only mascara I used, that doesn’t cause my lashes to fall after I’ve curled them. I love love love this mascara and have ever since I started really getting into make up (9th grade) anyway. I use the waterproof blackest black, but the straight brush, not the curved. I never get any flakes or anything during the day. One thing I have noticed over the years though, if you don’t use it within like the first month or so of opening it and using it daily, it tends to get kind of clumpy in the tube.

    I wish we have it here in Indonesia :( your lashes look so pretty with that l’oreal mascara.

    I think it looks really good for a dark brown mascara. I almost never like those.

    This is gonna sound weird but I have a natural rim around the outside of my irises like circle lenses create and I honestly couldn’t understand the fuss bc I thought everyone had a natural rim but apparently my eyes are extremely unique. Now seeing your eye closeup I understand tho I don’t get why circle lenses are controversial still…but I get why people say my eyes are the coolest looking/strangest looking they’ve ever seen. They also change colour from brown to amber to seafoam green to green-grey to grey-yellow/.

    I gotta say that mascara looks really clumpy to me and also I heard L’Oreal tests on animals still. but I see your natural colour-gradient in your lashes. Mine have almost gold tips too.

    Alex, a rim around the iris of your eye is not rare. Many children with lighter colored eyes have this, but it fades as you age. On some people it stays around until they get old. I have the same rim, and so does everyone else in my family. It’s very common in people like me (and you, it sounds) with hazel eyes because most hazel eyes have rayleigh scattering (in other words, the color is gradient over the iris from dark in the center to light at the border) and include blue, green, and brown/amber and they’re not just one color. It makes the rim on the outside of your eye more prominent.

    Also, hazel eyes do not change color. The change in color you think you’re seeing is simply reflects how the colors look different depending on the color of light which surrounds it… like wearing different colored clothes or standing inside versus outside. ALL eyes do this. The effect is just more dramatic on people with hazel eyes, again, because of the amount of rayleigh scattering.

    I have been using L’Oreal Voluminous mascara, Black/Brown, straight or curved brush for many, many years and now I am having difficulty in finding it.

    Has this particular one been discontinued?

    I would appreciate an answer.

    Thank you.

  11. Heather says

    I used L’Oreal Voluminous mascara for years because I like how long it makes my lashes look but it ALWAYS smudges under my eyes, even the waterproof and even if I’m only wearing it on my top lashes. It also flecks off leaving little black specks on my cheek bones.
    I now use a Wet and Wild mascara, bought in a makeup emergency, that doesn’t clump, flake or smudge and it costs less than $2!!

    The very crux of your writing whilst appearing reasonable initially, did not settle well with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I nevertheless have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you might do nicely to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I could definitely end up being fascinated.

    I have acquired Firefox, WEB BROWSER, and Google chrome downloaded on to my computer for a while right now with no problem. Recently I downloaded YIM and now Firefox does not start up. Basically restart my computer a few times, and try to open it a few dozens of times each time I reboot, it will eventually pop up. How do I fix it? Chrome and IE still work good but I favor Firefox..
