Loreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara

One of the things I look for most is Volume in a mascara. I love the look of thick full lashes but find a lot of mascaras made for this either don’t give you much length, or clump your lashes together, this is one of the reasons I love YSL mascara such as Babydoll, which you can read my review of here as they give you the best of the both worlds.

As much as I love my YSL mascaras they are expensive so I am constantly trying to find a cheaper mascara that gives me the big dramatic lashes I like. So when my mum bought me this mascara I was really excited to give it ago. It cost £9.50 and costs less than half the price of a high end mascara. Yet it is now one of my all time favorites.

Loreal Say:

Voluminous® Extra-Volume Collagen Mascara with lash-plumping technology delivers breathtaking volume and incredible wear. -The Hydra-Collagen Complex Formula is infused with collagen, to enhance the thickness of your lashes for up to 12X more impact without any clumps. -Patented Instant Impact Brush is 50% bigger than a classic brush so it builds that incredible volume fast. Clump-free. Flake-free. Smudge-free. Ophthalmologist and allergy tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

I love the big lash look you can get with Ultra Volume Collagen. This mascara gives you a fanned out look without any clumps. I find I don’t need to apply layer after layer as I get a really full and dramatic look with just two coats! I haven’t found clumping an issue at all, I think this is due to the beautiful thick brush.

The brush is made of big bristles, which I find give a much fuller effect than plastic comb brushes or rubber ones. Loreal claim the brush is twice as big as a classic brush. The brush is big but not too big that its hard to control and unlike other big brushes it still manages to grab and coat every lash.

The formula of this mascara is amazing it’s not too thick wet or dry! This means that you don’t get any flaking and little smudging. I did get an ever so slight smudging after wearing all day. I do however have very sensitive eyes and my eyes tend to water during the day. Yet this was  so minimal  considering the mascara gives such a beautiful look. I would without a doubt recommend it. Next time I will buy the waterproof formula and see if it helps.

Have you tried this mascara? What is your all time fave mascara? Which is your favourite cheaper mascara?

Lots of Love,
