Review: Loreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara

*Lack of sleep and having a oddly packed weekend kept me away from blogging but here's a review for you all!! *

What it claims: Most revolutionary lash plumping technology with hydra-collagen for breathtaking volume and incredible wear.

Hydra-collagen complex formula. The luxurious buildable formula infused with collagen plumps lashes from the inside. Glides on smoothly and lasts all day with 12x more impact. No flakes, smudges or clumps.

The instant impact brush is a custom designed volumizing brush that is uniquley shaped to reach every lash from corner to corner, for instant impact. Soft, luxurious bristles define and volumize all of your lashes for maximum volume, without any clumps.

-Clump free
-Flake free
-Smudge free
-Ophthamologist and allergy tested.
-Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

*All information came from package.

Where you can buy it: Target, Wal-Mart, CVS, Ulta, K-mart and anywhere else Loreal products are sold.

Price: $5.99-$7.99 depending on where you purchase it.

My Rating: 2 peace signs

The Good: I personally love mascara's with big brushes so this one was ideal. Despite what I didn't like about it, it actually did hold a curl and the volume it gave my lashes was pretty good. It also washed off really easily with make up remover or a wipe.

The Bad: The formula really sucked for me everything it claimed to be didn't live up. The clumps that formed on my lashes were crazy and even though I loved the brush I think it was a huge factor in the clumps because of how much product it picked up at one time. After every few uses when you take out the wand you can see a large amount of product sitting on the end of the brush so I could imagine how much is actually on the bristles ready to clump all over my lashes. It also flaked off within a few hours of wear and well as give me little black rings right under my lower lashes.

Overall: I didn't really like it as much as I wanted to. It's too bad because I thought with all it claimed it had potential to be one of my favorites.

*Just MY opinion/thoughts on this product. You never know it might work for YOU*
