L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara Review

Hello gorgeous ladies,

The makeup world is all about innovative makeup techniques like baking, colour correcting, highlighting, contouring, etc. which is not everyone’s cup of tea, but the one thing that is still an inseparable part of the daily makeup routine is doing lashes. And when it comes to mascara, I believe the drugstore has nailed it big time. Right from Maybelline to Covergirl and L’Oreal (my most favourites), the drugstore has a mascara for eye lash type and budget. So today, the mascara I have here is the L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara. Let’s find out if this baby made a permanent place in my vanity or no.

My Experience with L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Sculpt Mascara:

I have two Holy Grail mascaras, both from the drugstore and high end – Lancôme Grandiose Mascara and the Covergirl Super Sizer. These babies have a special home in my makeup stash and I have gone through numerous tubes of them, but that does not stop me from trying out new mascaras and improving my HG mascara list. So when I saw this new launch by L’Oreal, I got it without any second thoughts.
Mascara packaging

Packaging:  This L’Oreal mascara comes in a beautiful purple and silver packaging. The tube looks so fancy. The wand of the mascara is in the tube, so I could not show the unused wand in the images. I love the shiny silver packaging of this mascara, but it’s by no means a thin tube, in fact, it’s quite bulky. It takes a lot of space on my makeup bag, so this will just be an at-home use for me.
Outer packaging

Color:  The shade I got is “Blackest Black.” I don’t know why, but I can never settle for a mascara that is not the blackest black. Since I have black eyes, I think black mascara flatters them the most.

Formulation: The formula of this mascara is what I prefer. Yes, it’s more on the wet side. I do not like dry formulations because it does tend to get dry anyway after the mascara is opened. Although this does have a wet formula, but the wand just has enough product in it for application. This also holds my curl all day.
Open mascara

Longevity: The “Wow feature” is that this baby stays put all day! I have tested for a good 13 hours and I looked the same as it did when I applied it in the morning. It does not flake away or budge at all.
Mascara wand

Quality: I am super impressed with this mascara! It caught every lash which I have a problem with regular mascaras. I had no problem using the smaller bristles of the wand to apply mascara on my bottom lashes. There was no clumping, smudging nor flaking all day! I’ve tried mascaras that irritated my eyes and made my lash line just itch, but I had none of that with this mascara. The mascara came off so easily just using my makeup remover.
