First Impression Friday – @LOrealParisUSA Air Volume Mega Mascara

October 30, 2020

I just recently signed up for @bzzagent and the first item I was sent to review was the @lorealusa Air Volume Mega Mascara ($13.99 for .28 ounces –! As a mascara lover, I couldn’t wait to test it out!

What it claims:

🔘 Air whipped to create a lash multiplying effect with more volume that is weightless on lashes

🔘 Locks in for all day wear, lasting up to 24 hours

🔘 The key to the mega volume impact and longwear is in the lashing-building team of the the airy formula and double-bristle brush

🔘 The unique high charge, cushiony bristle brush captures, separates and coats every lash from the root to the tip

🔘 The short bristles catch and load lashes deep at the roots while the long bristles dispense the intensely black formula evenly for fully blown out lashes

🔘 Smudge and flake resistant

My experience:

🔘 Photo 5 shows one (1) coat on my right eye, photo 6 shows two (2) coats on my right eye and photo 7 shows two (2) coats on both eyes.

👍🏻 I was super impressed with the amount of volume this gave me with one (1) coat.

👎🏻 The brush comes out of the tube with a lot of product on it, so you have to be careful when applying or it can get clumpy real quick.

👍🏻 I love the amount of volume I was able to get with two (2) coats.

👍🏻👎🏻 While the volume was great, my lashes were lacking in length.

👍🏻 I have worn this on two (2) separate occasions, both times for over twelve (12) hours. The look I achieved upon initial application was the look I had right before removal.

👍🏻 I experience zero flaking or smudging.

My verdict?

While I thoroughly enjoy the amount of volume I can achieve with this product and the lack of smudging, the fact that it’s lacking in the length department and has a propensity to clump if not applied meticulously will keep me from repurcashing. In order to not waste the gift, however, I’ll pair it with another lengthening primer or mascara to get me the look I desire.

FYI, I receive a small commission when you shop via some of the links listed above. There is no additional cost to you, but it supports me and my blog and I greatly appreciate it!
