Hope you are having a wonderful day! Today I am reviewing a mascara from L’Oreal. This is the L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess Mascara.
Product Description from the L’Oreal Website:
Our legendary Millionizer brush is bigger than ever to separate and build each lash evenly from root to tip. The mascara features a built-in, anti-clump wiper that removes surplus mascara for a clean and impactful effect.
Plus, the ultra black formula amplifies each individual lash for a dramatic lash effect.

My experience with L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess Mascara Blackest Black:
I have really thin and sparse eye lashes! My lash hair itself is quite fine and to top that, my lashes have also thinned out further due to some hormonal health issues. So a good mascara which can add length and volume is something I am always looking for.

The L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess Mascara is the upgraded version of their original Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara. The Excess Mascara claims to provide bold volume with dramatic lash effect and a clean definition – i.e. it has an anti-clump wiper.

This mascara comes in a red and gold packaging which will stand out in your collection and looks luxurious! The brush of this mascara is a much bigger than usual, but is very comfortable to use. The brush is not stiff, in fact, it is quite bendable. The brush also has a unique shape – the bristles are narrow in the middle, giving the shape of a soft drink bottle.
I was worried that the big brush might be a problem to use, but it actually makes the job easier! One stoke coats most of my lashes. I have to go back again to get the ones in the inner corner.The texture of this mascara is neither very wet nor very dry. It goes on really smoothly on the lashes. The first coat comes out very neatly, without any clumps. But with the second coat, I see some minor clumping. The clumps are actually not so bad in person. They may look a little bit exaggerated in these macro photos. But it looks quite alright in person. So the anti-clump wiper does seem to be doing its job, because clumping is a major issue I face with many other mascaras.

Now coming to the results provided by this mascara – it gives good length to the lashes. It separates lashes well. I am quite happy with that. But volume? Nothing! even with 2 coats, I don’t see much volume. And this is supposed to be a voluminous mascara!
This is a non-waterproof mascara. But I was surprised to find that it was able to hold my curls well. The mascara washes off easily with just soap and water! And also surprising, it lasted throughout the day with no flaking or smudging.

Overall, I like the formula and ease of use. But I was not happy with the lack of volume this provided. It may be used as a lengthening mascara, maybe along with some other volumizing mascara.
Pros of L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess Mascara Blackest Black:
Good formula which is neither too wet or dry
Easy to use flexible brush
Provides good length
Clumping is minor
Separates the lashes well
Lasts through the day with no flaking or smudging
Washes of easily with just soap and water
Cons of L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess Mascara Blackest Black:
Does not add any volume
Non-waterproof formula might be a concern for some
It is a good daily use mascara if you are looking only for length. But if you want more volume, like me, then this is not the one for you.
