My favorite makeup product to test out is mascara. I love to try all the new mascaras that come out, especially from the drugstore. Maybe something new will measure up to my beloved L’Oréal Lash Paradise.
This is the L’Oréal Air Volume Mega Mascara.
How pretty is the packaging on this?! I love the pretty pink color.
I picked this up from my local Walmart for $10.97. I always choose blackest black and non-waterproof.
This mascara promises MEGA Volume, and I love volumized lashes, so I was excited to try this! It is also supposed to have an airy and light formula.
First off, as soon as I opened up the tube, I noticed a strong chemical smell. Very strong. Most mascaras don’t have a smell, but this one did. As I wore it throughout the day, the smell did go away, though.
As for the brush, I’m pretty sure that it is identical to the Lash Paradise brush, but the formula of the mascara does feel lighter, and kind of mousse like.
When I applied this to my lashes, it was a very “wet” formula, meaning there is a lot of it on the brush, and even wiping the brush off, I still end up with a LOT of product on my lashes. This immediately weighs down my lashes and makes them feel very heavy.
I tried this a few times, and it just did not work for me. It’s too wet. It didn’t give me any volume or lift, it just kind of clumped my lashes together and took forever to dry. Every day I wore this, it was a bad lash day.
This was sadly, a fail for me.
Have you tried this mascara?
