Mascara Monday: Loreal Voluminous Original Review

Mascara Monday: Loreal Voluminous Original Review

It’s that time again! Mascara review time!! I’m having so much fun doing this series! If this is the first post you are seeing, you can catch up on the other reviews here! This last week I’ve been using Loreal’s Voluminous Original Mascara. It had been years since I’ve used it so I was excited to try it again!

I’m pretty sure I got this in a Target beauty box but the price varies. It’s $5.89 at Target & $7.99 at Ulta. I like ordering through Target since I get free shipping with their red card!

My Thoughts

I liked the size of the brush and that it’s natural bristles. I wish that it cleaned more of the mascara off of the wand when you pull it out of the tube. You can probably see what I’m talking about in the picture below.

When applying, I had a problem with getting the mascara on my lids. Maybe once it dries out a bit I won’t have that problem. I didn’t think that this mascara gave me that much length or volume. It definitely clumped my lashes together a bit. It didn’t smudge but it did flake a bit. You might be able to tell in the picture below. I don’t normally have a problem with mascaras flaking either.

Would I Recommend?

I know a lot of people love this mascara but I’m just not in love with it. I know everyone’s tastes are different and have different lashes. I’m hesitant to recommend it though. If you are on a budget, I would say try try Essence’s Lash Princess Mascara (review)! There are a lot of other awesome drugstore mascaras out there too!

Would I Repurchase?

I probably won’t repurchase. It was an okay mascara for me. It wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t great either. I’ll let you know if I change my mind about it once it dries out a bit!

Up Next!

This week I’m going to be trying Maybelline’s The Falsies Push Up Drama! Back in the day I went through several tubes of the original falsies mascara so I’m really excited to try this one! I’ll have to try that again at some point! Lol.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, & Bloglovin!
