Mascara Monday: L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara.

I've been a long time fan of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara line. For big, bold, look at me lashes, it never fails. The brand is launching a new one (out next week), and I am super excited about this one. Meet L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara.

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

The name butterfly is no coincidence. It is named specifically for the Butterfly Brush™, a breakthrough in brushes, in my opinion. This asymmetrical, ergonomic, wing-tip brush with flexible arches is designed to lift the outer corner lashes for a flared effect. The uniquely-shaped brush features tightly packed bristles that work to "trap" lashes and extend them outward from corner to corner.

The formula is super silky and packed with fibers. Each Voluminous Butterfly Mascara includes 1.2MM fibers, actually, that instantly coats lashes in a soft, delicate veil for longer looking lashes with up to a whopping 6X the volume.

I am loving this mascara. I use the curved side for upper lashes, but prefer the flat side for the lower. One coat is great for everyday, and I definitely notice more definition with this than with any of the other Voluminous Mascaras I have used. I don't necessarily notice any special flaring in the corner, but longer-thicker, better looking lashes, overall for sure. I do notice a lot of lift, and that really opens the eye. It looks especially great when paring it with a deep black liner on the upper water line. This really opens my eyes. If I really want to have a bold look, then I apply two to three coats and am wowed each time.

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara will be available in your favorite drugstore and mass retailer, in October for $8.99. Choose from Black, Blackest Black or Black Brown. I am using Black.
