I have always wanted to wear those cute and voluminous false lashes but I cannot quite handle them. Hence, I kept hunting for a mascara, that could give me that effect and I ended up getting this one. This is a NEW mascara from L’oreal, so scroll to know how it worked for me.
Price: Rs 950
Product description by L’oreal:
The 1st curler effect mascara by L’Oreal Paris, easily wraps the lashes in two easy synergic steps for a starified, spot-light stealer eye look.
Super-Sizing Primer : Thickens each lash to build bodacious volume with the help of curler-effect brush on one-side. Infused with 7 types of extraordinary care oil.
Lash-Lifting Top-coat : Is enriched with an all sized lengthening and volumising fibers for super-lifted glossy black lashes. The extra fiber-rich formula mixed in, creates a mess-free look without irritation to your eyes. Glides in a soft, delicate veil to create silky, spectacular lashes that flutter. It stretches and extends your lashes like wings resulting in a dramatic fringe.
My Experience with L’oreal Paris False Lash Superstar Mascara:
Packaging: The mascara comes in a nice silver packaging, with a criss-cross design over it. It has the shape like a rocket and is sleek and long. It is a handy one, and fits nicely in a sling as well for touch-ups. The mascara is a bit expensive, as compared to the other competitor brands but that is okay since we know that L’oreal gives us excellent products. The clear base side wand is a straight one and the black mascara has a curvy wand.The wand has soft bristles, which nicely separate the lashes.
Shade, consistency and look on the eyes: The shade 1 is a white base. It is white and it is needed to separate the lashes. It nicely separates the lashes and makes it look more defined. But, it is really white, so I have to ensure I apply the black coat nicely or else the white colour will be visible. The black shade is dark and super black and makes the lashes look more prominent.
But the consistency is smooth yet a bit thick, so layering them a lot will surely clump them and make the lashes look very heavy. Hence, I must wait for one coat to dry and only then apply the other one. It makes my lashes look dense, voluminous and longer. It does have a very noticeable result. It won’t keep the lashes curled for long but I am okay with that.
Staying power: Once applied it does not smudge. It stayed on my lashes for more than 6-7 hours. But the biggest con is that, it is not water-proof. So, if you cry or your eyes are watery, then this will surely give you panda eyes.

IMBB Rating: 4/5
Would I Repurchase/Recommend L’oreal Paris False Lash Superstar Mascara again?
Yes, I do recommend this one, as it works very well but only if you are comfortable with a non-waterproof formula. I would love to try something from them next that will have a water-proof formula.
Conclusion: It can be a tricky product to use so be patient and do try it at the counter!
