I am currently using Voluminous False Fiber Lashes by L'Oreal. I can't say that I am crazy about it. I don't know if it is the formula, the wand, or both. When I apply the mascara, it comes off in clumps on my lashes. The brush seems really thick and I have a hard time getting into the corners of my eyes.
The L'Oreal Telescopic Original Mascara was what I was using previously. I think I really liked it because the brush was so skinny. When I pulled it out for the first time, I just stared at it because it was the skinniest brush I had ever seen. There was no clumping on the brush and I was able to apply the mascara evenly and was able to reach into the innermost corners of my eyes.
Then there is the L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion mascara. It consists of a tiny ball of bristles. A little odd at first but it definitely helps with applying mascara to each individual lash. It is perfect for the hard-to-reach parts in the corners.
I probably will not buy the False Fiber mascara again (image number one) just because of how it goes on. I would recommend the telescopic versions (both the skinny brush and the little ball) if you are wanting something for detail.
It is always interesting to see what you will get when you buy a new mascara. For me, the biggest thing is the shape of the brush and how it applies to my lashes. I feel like if you are able to apply your mascara without having to worry about severe clumping, your lashes will look longer and prettier. I do not think tarantula lashes look pretty on anyone!
I only wear mascara so I am constantly looking for the perfect one. What I hate is the first 3-7 days when you first open it because I don't feel like it applies right. Do you find that to be true?ReplyDelete
I haven't really noticed. Maybe you are just used to it by that point?Delete
Loreal, in my opinion, makes the best mascaras. I love the Voluminous Million Lashes, which is the one they made before the first one you posted. The wand is normal and there are no "false fibers" like that one, so you may want to try that one out!ReplyDelete
Haha, I think I've tried each one of these mascaras. I found that the cheapies like Rimmel or NYC work pretty well..ReplyDelete
I'm using the voluminous right now, and I have some clumping issues, but it's not too bad. I'd like to try the second one pictured...ReplyDelete
"Tarantula lashes" HILARIOUS!ReplyDelete
I have Mary Kay waterproof (pregnancy, you know) right now and truly, it doesn't go on VERY cleanly and I would prefer a thinner brush. It does, however, stay on like a miracle - no chipping off or residue around my eyes. I used to be a MK Flawless girl all the way, but I haven't gotten that in a while.
I was never sold on MK mascara (even before I was pressured into selling it.) I think there are cheaper options that do the same thing.Delete
L'Oréal definitely has the best mascaras in my opinion, I only use them since they even top "designer" mascaras.ReplyDelete
Love, Mary ♡ Fashionbirds
My favorite is the yellow one of Maybelline! I'll follow your tips!ReplyDelete
I personally recommend the LOreal Voluminous!!!ReplyDelete
Mascaras and I have issues. They either clump or they don't look like I have any on. I've finally settled on Lash Blast for now, but I think I might try the Telescopic one you mentioned. The skinny brush might actually be good for me!ReplyDelete
I usually use Great Lash by Maybelline. It's cheap and it's a classic!ReplyDelete

I'm kind of addicted to trying out mascaras. I've hit a lot of different brands high and low, and I definitely have found a few favorites: Bad Gal Lash by Benefit, They're Real by Benefit, and Maybelline's Great Lash. Definitely try them out if you haven't!ReplyDelete

I will have to check them out! Thanks!Delete
I am always on the lookout for a great mascara! Thanks so much for the tips!ReplyDelete
I am telling you RIGHT now, Cover Girl 24hr lash blast is the BEST I have found....in love!!ReplyDelete
I can totally relate! I have tried countless mascaras but always go back to Great Lash. It just does the job the best for me :)ReplyDelete
What a great review post! Great insights and tips, thanks for sharing! :-) xxxReplyDelete
Oh I so wish I could try different mascaras. I have sensitive eyes and can only use neutrogena.ReplyDelete
Leopard and Lillies
Yes me too! My fave splurge is Dior Show. Right now I am using Fabulash, I think? I always forget the names...I'd like to try that first Loreal one now.ReplyDelete
for drugstore i like the almay get up and grow and for high end, i am in love with mally voluminous mascaraReplyDelete
i agree the loreal voluminous in carbon black is a nice go to
I think Loreal is made by Lancome so that brand is usually pretty good. I live the voluminous one. Thanks for sharing. :)ReplyDelete
I agree about tarantula eyelashes being very unflattering!ReplyDelete
My favorite mascara is They're Real by Benefit. It's the best I've ever tried - hands down. Your lashes will be incredibly long, thick, and it doesn't flake!
My favorite is Maybelline XXL Pro Extension Waterproof. Love the 2 step process it has :)ReplyDelete

My favourite is Voluminous Million Lashes...it's not as clumpy as the original, and it's just AWESOME at getting each lash defined and making them thicker and darker and longer looking all at once!ReplyDelete
Kisses and Good week!!
