I love trying out new mascaras, they are one of those products where I am always looking for the next best product. Today is the turn of the L’Oreal Mega Volume Collagene 24 hr Mascara.
This is one of the more traditional bristle brushes, although it is more of a traditional wand on steroids it is absolutely huge. If you look it next to my L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes wand the size of the wand becomes clear. I just found the brush too big, ending up with mascara where it shouldn’t be as well as finding it harder to apply the product closer to the root to add volume and definition. Leaving more to be desired, as it was so impractical to use. The formula though is nice, nothing to write home about but nothing bad. It adds a good level of volume leaving thick fluttery lashes, which would look great if it wasn’t also all over your eyelid as well as your lashes.
I’d love to be more objective and provide a better review, but with it hard to get past the brush issues I find it hard to find something positive or even something more to say about the product. Once I’ve finished another of my mascaras I may try again but for now this will sadly sit in my makeup draw, until I suddenly run out of mascara and have nothing to use.
Let me know what your favourite type of mascara brush is? Plastic or bristles? Also which do you think makes the biggest difference with products like mascara, the wand or he formula?
