L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes So Couture review - before & after photos

Ooh I like the sound of a mascara that promises to dress my lashes in black silk.... Sounds very swish altogether doesn't it?  What I'm on about today is L'Oreal's Volume Million Lashes So Couture mascara which promises no clumps, no stiff lashes and refined volume.  Don't mind if I do.


Regular readers of the blog know I'm all about mascaras and their wands and I have to say that I do enjoy a good plastic bristled wand so I do.  I always feel that it combs through my lashes properly and this one is no different.  It's wider at the base of the brush, meaning you can use the tip to get all your teeny weeny lashes and use the thick end to pack on the mascara to your outer lashes.


Now, this has what they call a Black Silk formula and when I'm applying the mascara to my lashes, I can feel that the formula is different to anything else I've tried.  Let me try to explain.  You know the way some formulas are dry or too wet, or if you're lucky, you get the Goldilocks formula where it's just right.  Well this is that but it also feels different.  Thick, almost gel like, but still doesn't clump.   I wish I could do a better job of explaining it but whatever's in it, feels thick on the lashes and yet doesn't weigh them down.  

Want to see what I mean?


This mascara gives fantastic lift to my lashes.  So much so that the first time I used it, I started singing Lifted by The Lighthouse Family and it's been stuck in my head since.   It's described as giving "refined volume" and that's exactly what I get with this.  It gives me enough volume to use it as a day time mascara and I can go to work happy out.  For nights out though, I need more drama, more everything because when it comes to me and mascara and going out, the bigger the better.

For during the day though, this is a great mascara and not only does it hold up it's end of the bargain in terms of refined volume, but it doesn't clump and doesn't give stiff crispy lashes.  I know this to be true because the other day I forgot I had it on and started rubbing my eyes without copping on that I was wearing it.  And I can attest that it lasts from 5am until bed time without smudging and you can't complain about that eh?


So if you're looking for a solid daytime mascara that gives you lift, separation with no clumping, then check this out.  It's on stands now and will set you back €11.99.  I'm intrigued enough to want to try more of the Volume Million Lashes collection.

Do we likey?

  3. This looks great on you. I'm currently using Miss Manga during the day. I loved it when I got it first but now I'm finding it really clumpy as I get towards the end of the tube. Not such great value after all!

    1. Ah I hate when that happens, but I always think that a dried out mascara has gotten a lot of use and love ;)

    1. Sorry Aida, I meant to say that in the post, that's one coat, I always only ever do one coat when I do mascara reviews to keep it all consistent :)

  6. Refined volume is exactly how it looks! I bought a mascara yesterday, but by the look of it I might very well grace Boots with my presence tomorrow and try this one as well (what? You do need to try them all to find THE perfect one)
