Honest reviews



I kept hoping these would work. I naturally have long lashes and usually wear clear mascara but I thought the idea of making my lashes more voluminous and making them look like false lashes would be really pretty. Unfortunately, I ended up with clumpy lashes and a bunch of black particles all over my eyes that looked like smudged mascara. I definitely don’t recommend these. Maybe they work on shorter, thinner lashes.

Time consuming and not worth the effort

The Claims:”Discover a breakthrough in fiber mascara technology. Voluminous false fiber waterproof lashes features a unique blend of long and short nylon and rayon fibers, the same material used to make false lashes to deliver lashes that appear fuller, longer, curled and sculpted. Long-lasting and waterproof. No clumps or messy results. Just outrageous volume from every angle.”The only thing “outrageous” about this mascara is the flaking and smudging and the claims made by L’Oreal’s marketing team. I don’t know who they tested this out on but it certainly wasn’t me or anyone with oily lids!But let me back up a bit. I like the brush, though a bit long it is nicely shaped with a wider bottom that tapers off into a thinner top which is great for getting at those teensy lashes. That’s where the love ends for me though. The formula is dry, even on my first application it was dry and flaked all over my cheeks. After a few uses the brush started collecting what I guess are the “fibers” near the tip so it must be wiped off before each use. And the flaking gets worse with every use. I bought black and it requires 3-4 coats for the length and volume I’m used to getting from other (better) mascaras (Mally, Tarte). It does an ok job of lengthening the lashes without clumping up but I don’t see a lot of curling going on. But its biggest fault is that it smudges on my brow after only an hour or so of wear. I bought the waterproof version so I wouldn’t have to worry about looking like a fool mid-day but it failed me. And the smudges aren’t removed easily. I have to really scrub to get them off and end up removing patches of eyeshadow.I will never buy this again. It is so not worth the trouble.

I liked this but it seemed to flake a bit at times after wearing it for a while, it looked nice, however I still prefer Great lash as my first fav, but this worked well thought it did seem to dry out a little.

It works but it will clump once in a while

I ran out of this product and purchased Lancome’s Difinicil and realized the difference between the 2 is that the latter does not clump at all (on lashes or inside the container), comes off much easier and cost more. If you don’t mind removing occassional clumps (I use a clear mascara brush) then the L’Oreal is fine. I would have ordered the Difinicil if it were Prime but will reorder the L’Oreal. It does work well and I got as many compliments, if not more, when I used it.

Nice long lashes

Nice long lashes, and not too clumpy but it does tend to smear under my eyes a little more than I like. I will continue to buy it though 🙂

Didn’t Live Up to Promises

This mascara stays nice and soft and malleable on your lashes… even after 3 coats… and I have to admit that this mascara really doesn’t clump, even after three coats. And the reason why I needed 3 coats? It is because the fibers they promised me to make my lashes long, longer, longest never appeared no matter how many coats I used.Oh and after 3 coats you do get clumping, and it isn’t pretty.A waste of my time and money.

Great Mascara for long full lashes!

I have extremely thin lashes and have tried a million different mascara’s trying to make my lashes as long and full as I can. I have had luck with Maybelline Falsies but this product is much better for my lashes with extreme wearability. I only need a couple applications and my lashes are full and look long and don’t clump (and if it does due to my application error it’s a easy fix before it dries ) . Being that its waterproof it stays on all day, and have to use a little more makeup remover for my eyelashes to remove at night which is what I was looking for, all day wear.My new favorite mascara!

Good product but arrived a bit dried out. Old?

I have used this mascara before from the store and loved it but this time the one I got seems a bit dried out as if it were past its sell by date.

Best Mascara!!

Love this mascara! It, obviously, doesn’t make you look like you are wearing falsies, but I wasn’t expecting it to. It does separate each individual lash, and even with three coats doesn’t clump ~ at all. It makes each lash stand out while looking both thicker and longer. This is the best mascara I have EVER used. I have been trying a variety of brands lately, but I am sticking with this one. I highly recommend this mascara.
