L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara Review

As a make up addict, I have tried a lot of different mascaras and also love to try new things and change my make up routine. However, once I found this baby that all stopped. This mascara is amazing!!! I've been using it on a daily basis for around 6 months but I have had a tube in my collection for a good 2 years, using it on and off. 

When I first got this, I thought it was too pricey (I'm a student, don't judge me!) to be using as an everyday mascara so just used to use it for special occasions such as parties etc. However, recently I've realised that this mascara can be used to create better than natural day to day lashes as well as extremely voluminous night time lashes and so I have been using this everyday.

The good thing is that this products tends to be part of some sort of offer at Boots or Superdrug, whether it's a 3 for 2 or buy one get one half price. 

I have tried the original formula and the extra black formula but would like to try the waterproof, the luminizer for different coloured eyes and the new collagen formula.

This is the packaging, nothing really special, just a good sturdy tube. 

This is the 'millionizer' brush which claims to separate lashes and make each of them 3 times bigger.

Now what this mascara claims to do is have an excess wiper inside the tube in order to collect any excess mascara to prevent clumping. I think this works for the brush itself but sometimes clumps of mascara remains on the very tip of the wand which can transfer to the lashes and make them clump.

I do have fairly long eyelashes naturally, but don't let that put you off! I tried this on my step sister once and she has fairly short eyelashes and her's looked amazing afterwards!!

My natural lashes:

After 2-3 coats of mascara - my 'day to day' lashes:

My nose really isn't THAT big :( it's the camera angle I promise!

After more coats - my going out / night time lashes:

Again with the nose >.< if my lashes didn't look as nice as they do here this photo would not be here!!

  • amazing volume and length
  • good staying power
  • very black in colour
  • can be used day to day and at night for a dramatic effect
  • price
  • can be a little clumpy
  • can flake off a little during the day

In conclusion - I love this mascara!! It gives me amazing volume and length and makes it look like I'm wearing falsies! To anyone wanting to try it out - go for it, it's worth the money :)

Thanks for reading!

You can buy this mascara for £10.99 from Boots or Superdrug. 
All opinions are my own, this is not an affiliated post. I bought this mascara with my own money!


  1. Your lashes are so long! I really want to try this mascara xx

  2. Wow this is amazing! Although you do look to have lovely long lashes anyway. I've heard good things about this mascara, but like you I think it is a little expensive :( (I'm a student too haha!)

    1. It's so worth it though! If you like other L'oreal products, Superdrug currently have 3 for 2 on all their cosmetics :) xx
