I’ve been testing out the L’Oreal Mega Volume Collagene 24 H* mascara for quite a while now, thought it best to give you an update before I hit the 3 months mark. This has been my go to mascara, even with the addition of recent mascaras I will reach for this. I definitely think this is a great volumising mascara. Down below you can see my eyelashes without any mascara, with one coat on the top lashes and two coats on the top lashes and one coat on my bottom lashes. I generally only wear one coat, I like the fluttery effect this gives with just one coat. It layers up quite nicely, although I do have to comb through my lashes before applying the second coat. It does a great job of coating the full length of my eyelashes with a single coat, helping to make them look longer! I’m sure I’m not the only person with blonde tipped lashes.
I’m also a fan of the wand, the almost hourglass shape really does help to get in at the smaller lashes, without ending up with half of it all over your lids. It’s also a bristle wand, as opposed to a plastic wand. I generally prefer these as they often coat my lashes better, however this is always personal preference. This mascara also doesn’t smudge too much underneath my bottom lashes, although after about 5hours, I can definitely see a bit of smudging. There will be a tiny amount, but nothing too drastic and it can be easily cleaned up! Winner! I’ve been having issues with other mascaras doing this very badly. I think this lashes very well on my lashes too, causing no irritation as time goes on.
The only issue I have with this mascara, is that it applies tiny clumps too. So you do need to comb your lashes through, just so these don’t end up either clumping your lashes, or smudging on your eyelids! I always comb through my lashes anyway, so this isn’t too big a deal.
All in all, I like this mascara! I might even repurchase it! Although I do have others I want to test out too….Have you any good mascara recommendations? Or mascaras to avoid? Would love to know!
