So you guys know I’m a sucker for mascara. Like many of you out there, my lashes are short and not very thick. To top it off, the edges are blonde (I know, a Greek with blonde lashes) and my eyes are also quite big, which means I cannot go a day without mascara. I need lashes!
I must have a bazillion tubes of mascara, and while it’s hard for me to pick favourites, each one has it’s own unique benefits.
A new mascara I got to try out recently is from L’Oreal and it’s called Volume Million Lashes, Extra-Black. It’s an updated version to their first Volume Million Lashes, but this one extra black.
I love it! It makes my lashes super black, thickens out my blonde tips and ads more va-va-voom. What I really like about it, is that you can pile on up to five coats (I haven’t’ attempted more) and still your lashes look quite natural, not clumpy and fake.
I like to apply three coats, let it dry a little and then apply two more. The formula is not clumpy so it doesn’t crumble when you try to apply more coats even when its just about dry.
Other benefits of this mascara include Elastomer Bristles with an ultra flexible brush, a built-in anti-clump wiper that removes excess mascara and the millionizer brush that separates lashes. The new Extra-Black version contains carbon-black pigments that really makes those lashes super black!
