I'm always looking for the best mascara so when my sister picked up the L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara on our recent CVS shopping trip I knew I had to try it for myself. You see, Cindi immediately put on this mascara following our drugstore haul and her lashes were transformed. I had to put this primer and mascara to the test for myself.
L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara is just that: a primer and mascara in one package.
On one end of the tube there is a mascara primer and this is no ordinary primer. This mascara primer is a super-volumizing base that helps to build dramatic volume instantly onto each lash. It's lightweight so it doesn't weight down the lash. It simply creates volume as it lays down a smooth and even base to maximize the effects of the mascara. It's white so you can see exactly where you apply it.
On the other end is the mascara. This mascara is fiber-infused and it adheres right onto the primer/lashes. It applies easily with the curved brush. It seems to lift my lashes and add a ton of volume to them along with dramatic length. Because of the primer, I only need to apply two coats of mascara.
Before applying the mascara, I let the primer dry for about a minute. I'm not sure if this is recommended, but after trying to apply when the primer was too wet, I didn't feel like my results were as good.
I did not experience any clumping or flaking with Voluminous Superstar Mascara but I did have a little bit of smudging with the regular mascara toward the end of the day. I wasn't sure if this was due to my concealer and the mascara not playing nice so I picked up the waterproof version and I didn't experience any issue of smudging. I really love the length and volume I get so the L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara Waterproof it is for me.
