Review: L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes

This is a review for L’Oreal’s Voluminous Million Lashes mascara in Black. You can find this item at your local drugstore, WalMart, and Target for around $9.00.

Company’s Description

The Millionizer brush has a multitude of bristles to separate lashes for a fanned-out lash effect. The elastomer applicator is ultra flexible with both long and short bristles to coat each lash evenly from root to tip. The excess wiper removes excess mascara. It leaves the brush coated with just the right amount of formula to achieve maxed up volume with no overload and no clumps.

Packaging: 9.5/10

This mascara comes in tube form (like almost all mascaras) but stands out because of its gold plastic exterior. The brush has evenly-spaced, fairly short, plastic bristles.

Quality: 7.75/10

This was a “meh” mascara. The formulation is good in terms of not being to dry or overly watery. But, beyond that, the formulation really didn’t do much.

Instead of separating the lashes (volumizing them), it actually pushes some of them together. It didn’t necessary “clump,” but there just wasn’t that fanning out of lashes that gives you “volume.” It did lengthen slightly. And it did have decent staying power throughout the day.

Ease of Use: 9/10

The mascara applied well and the brush size is good for application. Though the stopper inside the tube helps prevent too much mascara from getting onto the brush, you still get that glob on the end of the applicator, like you do with all mascaras. Make sure to wipe that part off before applying.

Price: 8.75/10

$9.00 is on the higher size of an average price for a drugstore mascara.

Final Grade


Toss if: you want a lot of volume
Try if: you want a mascara that’s not too watery or too dry
Buy if: you like the gold packaging–that’s really the only distinguishing reason to definitely buy this mascara

    I got this mascara as a gift & I was not overly impressed with it. This flaked off significantly at the end of the night & felt heavy on my eyes.

  3. Vittoria says:

    i’d never buy a formula that promises definition…they’re always no good!

  4. Lisa B. says:

    Do you curl your lashes?

  5. Deja says:

    I usually stay clear of L’Oreal mascaras bc their formulas are always so… sketchy, for lack of a better word, on my eyelashes. It more so weighs them down and gives them that brittle feeling. And I hate crunchy lashes.

  6. Joanne says:

    It looks like it does clump your lashes more so than fanning them out. I don’t think I would try this then. My lashes need a LOT of volume not clumping. =D

    I could never really seem to find a drugstore mascara that really works for me, but I tried out LOreal’s Telescopic Explosion mascara which I really liked. 🙂 Thanks for the review!
