Will You Really Get the False Lash Effect With L’Oreal Voluminous False Lashes?

Read ALL about my review process including how I take swatches, photos, and more here.

Real talk, most mascara ads are bullshit. What you typically see on the model or spokesperson is the results of HOURS of manipulation and likely a set of fake lashes. But of course since we girls are always on the quest for a great mascara, we buy it anyway. I typically don’t stray away from mascara faves too often because I find most of them just wind up doing the same thing anyway, but after browsing through Ulta and having Gwen Stefani staring at me from her L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes display I decided to give it a whirl.

The design of the wand ensures each lash gets coated and remains separated with each wiggle. There’s no clumping and no flaking which we all can appreciate, right?

My bare lashes:

Lashes with two coats of L’Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes:

The results? Nice…but much different than what I’d get with any other mascara. Actually, I encourage you to look through all my mascara reviews and you’ll see my lashes pretty much all look the same…lol. I’m of the school that it’s more in the technique than of the actual mascara—with the right amount of wiggles, I can work magic on even the shortest of lashes without any fancy formulas–aside from Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils Shocking. I have a weak spot for that stuff.

Or maybe I’m just a mascara pessimist. *shrugs*

Bottom line: This is okay, but I wouldn’t go rushing out to buy it unless you happen to be at a drugstore and they’re having a 50% off sale.

    Maybelline The Falsies seems to work–you just have to comb them well.

    Hey Danielle! Have you tried Maybelline Illegal Length?! I’m absolutely in love with that stuff and I feel like I do get better results compared to others I’ve tried. But like you said, it might just be the technique :)

    i have the original voluminous lashes and i love that stuff! i haven’t tried this one yet but it looks great on you!

  9. Myranda says:

    Yes and it seems most mascaras claim to give you the “false lashes” look. In my experience if you want the false lashes look, you need to get false lashes. I sure miss my extensions but I don’t miss that $60 every 3-4 weeks.

    I swear by Mally Roncal’s Voumizing Mascara. It’s amazing!!!

  11. Alexis says:

    I agree with Jace! Mally’s voluminzing is everything! I’ve been a fan for the last past 3 years her stuff is amazing!

  12. Anu says:

    I like this mascara for the volume, but feel like it’s dry looking! I finish with Carbon Black Volumizing. Maybelline Colossal is another fave of mine too.
