L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara [Black] Review

The L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara reached me as a gift. You remember the L'Oreal Radiance gift kit from my sister? If no, check out the products HERE.  I have also reviewed the Lip Gloss, Nail Polish and Bronzer that came in the kit HERE, HERE & HERE. With this review I have reviewed the entire contents of the kit.

The review was requested by Ankita & Raaga :)


I don't use mascara very often. Also, since the mascara's shelf life is short I don't have more than 2 mascaras at a time. Now when I checked all my makeup stuffs I found around 5-6 mascaras !!!, have to discard the ones I don't use :( This one just came with the kit and I wanted to try it seeing the name  "volume million lashes". Well, it does not meet my expectations and no way the name suits the mascara !! I usually use only black mascara and this one is in Black too.

  • Good packaging.
  • Good lengthy applicator.
  • Easy to carry around.
  • Gives nice black color to the lashes.
  • Does not make the lashes feel heavy.

  • Not easily available.
  • Doesn't bring much difference to my lashes [though I don't like dramatic lashes]
  • Heavy fragrance is a little disturbing during application.
Without Mascara

With Mascara on Upper Lashes only

The cost of L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara is Rs.600 for 9 ml.


The L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara is an "okay" mascara according to me. I am very happy with my Bourjois one, which does exactly what I want. It might work well for some of you but this is not the one I need. I shall keep this for everyday use (if at all I use a mascara everyday :p) when I don't have to highlight my eyes so well.

  1. I thought this was the best mascar out there...... and like you, i dont use masccara very much too.

    1. Even I expected a lot out of it :(

  2. it was much raved about in cannes no . .sad to find it doesnt meet the expectations!!! the packaging looks so classy though !!!!

    1. Me too like the packaging Rashmi :)

  3. good pictures and good post :)

  4. I liked its effect on your lashes lekin!

    1. Thanks Manya, I just use this on a casual day when my eyes don't need much attention :p

  5. I have this and feel the same way :( I like rimmel and cover girl masacaras...

    1. I have never tried the brands you have mentioned. When I get a chance will check out their mascaras Devi :)

  6. I can never take closeup of my eyes the way you have taken...mine look like huge saucers :| The first time I sniffed a fragrance to a mascara was with the YSL one..was kind of surprising/odd..I got used to it now, but I still find it odd..why does anyone need their eyelashes to smell good?? :| :| :|

    This looks nice, though, if you don't like too much mascara action going on..I prefer these kinds since I amn't too great with the application :P

    1. My eyes look so pathetic and drowsy always, had to click a million times to get one proper pic :( It is sooooooo tiring, you don't know Rads.

      Exactly why would anyone want their eye lashes to smell good????? I still rem the smell on this one..Goshh..If I have to hide my sleepy eyes when I am going somewhere near by, I reach for this mascara. It does help me some times :)

    2. Hehehee...ya if not anything else..the smell will wake you up :D :D

    3. Haa Haaa.. Very true Rads :)

  7. Nice review dear :) i too feel the same.. this mascara has a nice black colour for regular use but the availability is a problem.. and you said rightly that mascaras dont keep for long..its best to discard them after 2-3 months..
