Review: L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Diamonds

The past few days I have been doing a little drugstore stalking, just to see what has been around. I will always love drugstore makeup, because when I was little I got my first taste of the makeup bug on drugstore products. L’Oreal, Maybelline and Revlon hold nostalgic places in my heart.

I have always loved L’Oreal’s Voluminous Mascara. Every so often they tweak it, and it generally works better than the original. For the holidays they decided to release the Million Lashes mascara with a Diamond Sparkle formula. Supposedly it shimmers. And they also claim to have no clumps with a clean sweep wiping system. The color I tried is Black Diamond. There are a few colors. (I could not get a picture of the shimmer. I could see it in the sunlight, but it would not photograph).

Photos: In the first three you can see I don’t have on any mascara, just foundation, brow makeup and lipliner. The next photo on the left in the second row shows mascara on the left eye and none on the right. The middle photo of the second row shows mascara on both eyes, eyes closed. The photo on the right of the second row shows eyes open and mascara on both eyes. The photo on the left of the third row shows eyes open with mascara on both and eyeliner, blush and lipgloss on lips. Third row, middle photo is a close up and shows the same makeup (mascara, eyeliner, blush and lipgloss).

Having tried the Million Lashes formula before, I was anxious to try see the shimmery mascara. Cover Girl had released one a few years ago and theirs actually came close to looking like a slightly shimmery mascara. I tried on the mascara and was immediately happy with how it lengthened my lashes. I have tiny, thin blonde lashes (as you can see from the photos above) that are almost invisible. This mascara made them look very long and gave them great volume. I used three coats and did not wait for the mascara to dry between coats. However, I did not see any shimmer on my lashes. None, nada.

Voluminous Million Lashes Diamonds is wonderful for giving lashes volume and even length but there is no shimmer to be found. So disappointed that I didn’t get any shimmer but I am happy that I did get a great volumizing mascara, so my money is not completely wasted. This product is available at Walgreens for $8.79.
