REVIEW: Loreal Voluminous Mascara

I used to not care on putting on a mascara. When I was just starting, I thought that its a waste of money and its really not necessary. I thought that I don't really need a mascara on my kit. 

My first ever mascara is the Bobbi Brown mascara that my aunt from Taiwan gave me. I loved it! It was a great mascara. It lengthens my lashes and it just made my eyes look amazing. And from then on I realized how it affects my eye's appearance. I realized that it makes a big difference. 

After I finished the tube, I was searching for a not so expensive mascara that will still satisfy my need. My lashes isn't that short, I am pretty satisfied with the length of it. I am pretty blessed on that. :) 

Here is a photo of my lashes without any mascara. 

I bought the Magnum Volum Express mascara from Maybelline. And it didn't satisfy me. So for awhile, I stopped bothering searching for a mascara. But to not waste my money on it, I used the mascara just for the sake of it. 

And then a few months ago I heard how Judy of ItsJudyTIme raved about it. I wanted to get the same mascara but I told myself that I should finish up my mascara first. So I didn't bother searching. 

Last May, when I went to the Superb Bazaar, I went to Chedelyn's Cosmetics booth to buy some products. I bought the Revlon Colorstay and some other things. When I'm about to pay, I saw the mascara that Judy was talking about. Then and there, I knew that I have to get it! So, I did.

Here's what it looks like. 

I think the packaging looks super sleek. Gold with some cute angles! :) I love it! 
It isn't cheap looking at all!

The applicator isn't too special. But I noticed that it is thinner and longer than the Maybelline mascara. It is skinny enough to reach the inner corner of my lashes. 
And it doesn't look complicated so I like it about that. :)

The consistency is a bit dry. I don't know if its really the normal consistency of it but its still working, so no problem with that. I like that it isn't messy to apply. 1-2 coats is enough to give your lashes the UMPH that you're looking for!

So here's what my lashes look like with this mascara on. 

Isn't it gorgeous?! :) 
This product claims to give your lashes the volume that falsies can give. 
And I agree! I really don't wear falsies cause first, I don't know how. And second because I think its TOO much. 
So this mascara is a good alternative to falsies. :) 

I really love it. I love how it lengthens and volumizes my lashes. 
It doesn't clump nor smudge. 
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 

I will definitely repurchase this! And yes, I recommend it to everyone! 
All girls who lovesss mascaras and who wants longer lashes, this is a must have! :) 

And I am not sure if its available locally. But you can buy it from online shops. 
I bought mine for 350 pesos from Chedelyn's Cosmetics on facebook. 
Pretty cheap huh?!  ♥ 
I was blown away by how amazing this product is! For now, this baby is my HG mascara!
