Have I told you my Voluminous Mascara story? At one point, it used to be the only mascara I used. I’ve used tubes and tubes of the original one, and the best deal on the mascara is at duty free where you can find 2 tubes for a steal.
And then I started using CoverGirl mascaras and stopped using Voluminous because I didn’t need it anymore.
Then a couple of years ago, I made friends with a girl who had the most amazing lashes – and yes, she used Voluminous mascara. So, of course, I had to go back to this tried and true favourite, and you know what, this time it didn’t work well for me. The darn thing smeared all over my eyelids. Weirdly enough, it seems that my skin has gotten oilier as I age.
But that’s not to say that I don’t like some of the other incarnations of L’Oreal’s Voluminous mascara.
And now there’s a new favourite – L’Oreal Voluminous Power Volume 24H Black Smoke mascara in Blackest Black. I mean, if you want real volume and dark smoky lashes, then this is the one and only mascara you need to turn to. Because it’s 24H, it won’t smear or run throughout the day, but comes off really easily with soap and water at the end of the day. $11.99 this new kid is totally worth the extra $2.
Also – Voluminous is the No. 1 mascara in Canada, so it seems that if you use it, you’re surely in good company.
Today, L’Oreal features a special in-store promotion called “Dress Your Lashes”. The idea is that you can build your own lash wardrobe with one of four Voluminous mascaras. You can get either the Voluminous original, the Voluminous Million Lashes, or the Voluminous False Fiber lashes. The promotion goes until March 13th.
