[Review] L'oreal Volume Shocking Mascara



WARNING: THIS IS NOT A RAVE REVIEW. THIS IS A HIGHLY RAVE REVIEW

Let's just say, I've lived my life convincing myself that there are no such a thing as a perfect mascara. No mascara in this world will deliver everything in one tube. That is, before I met this mascara.

Enter: L'oreal Volume Shocking Mascara

This is a two step defined volume mascara. So the website says. It comes in a dual ended tube and you apply the mascara in two step. First step is the pearly white primer and second step is the black colored mascara.

What I love this mascara? The question should be, what I don't love about this mascara? And the answer would be nothing. First of all: when I wear this, people ask if my lashes are real or false. Second of all: when I say they are real, people insist that it's fake. Third of all: when I insist they're real, people get mad. Anyway, I'm just going to make this review as simple as possible. Here's the list of what this mascara gives:

Volume (obviously)
Length
Curl (Volumized mascara that also holds curl!!! Doesn't happen everyday.)
Separates and defines
No clumps
Intense black color
Waterproof
Long lasting
Easy-to-maneuver brush applicators
This is a drugstore mascara! Hullo!!

Cons? Well... It's a two steps mascara so there's an extended time when applying this mascara. But that's it.

Bare lashes


With the primer on


And.. Tadaaaa!!!


Compare to my naked lashes. Do I really have to tell you which is which?


There are three two-step mascaras from L'oreal. Mine is 'Volume Shocking Exact Brush' where both applicators are brushes. The other one in a black and gold casing has a comb applicator for the mascara. I don't fancy comb applicator so I picked the one in gold casing instead. It's a personal preference, though.


This review might sound a bit hyper but I promise you, this is not even a sponsored review. I've been using this mascara for a month now and I'm really falling in love with it. The lashes might look extravagant but it still look appropriate for daily wear, at least in my opinion since I'm crazy about volumized lashes. I got a lot of compliments when wearing this mascara and when something like that happened, obviously I have to share it with you.

and how did you curl it??
mine were like yours, long and desperately straight..but i can never get that beautiful curl like yours :(
how long do you hold the curler??

@vtree
I don't think it takes a lot of time to curl it. But instead of squeeze the curler in three different part of the lashes, I slide my curler from the root the tip and flip the curler 180degrees at the tip as it makes the curl looks natural :)
