L'Oreal Paris - False Lash Butterfly Wings Mascara

Hello everyone,

Ok so I know I said that the previous mascara I reviewed I loved (and still do), but this, this mascara, in my humble opinion, is the Holy Grail of mascaras.  I absolutely love it!!!

It's the wand that gives you the most amazing length and winged effect.  It is the 1stmascara with an asymmetrical brush/wand.

 The asymmetrical brush helps to lift and stretch your outer corner lashes to give you a fanned out lash effect. Very in season currently but never really out of season as it is a very classic look.  Helps to accentuate the feline look.  Partner it with a feline flick of eyeliner and you have a very effective way of opening up your eyes and looking beautifully seductive at the same time.  Who knew?  

The shorter bristles add the product to your lashes 
and the longer "winged" bristles help to stretch your lashes and wing them out. 

I have trialled this mascara for about 2 weeks and I really like it.  The formula is a heavy, wet formulation but smooth and silky, not clumpy.  And there are no flakes.  Your lashes don't feel stiff or crunchy.  
I have worn it to work, dancing and still no fallout nor smudging.  I did however wear it to the gym and I did get fallout and smudging after a particularly sweaty session.  But I wasn't wearing the waterproof so I think that's justified.  My eyes look so much bigger and my lashes just look amazing!

For a 'budget' mascara I think it's fantastic.  However, in my home country Australia it is quite expensive in comparison to other brands. It retails in Australia for $25.95, which I think is very expensive.  That's getting quite close to premium brands such as Lancome (which is owned by L'Oreal) and the like.  I would buy this on sale but I'm pretty sure you won't regret it.  I am very sure this will be my staple mascara from here on in.

I'm very impressed with it.  The packaging is slick using a metallic mirrored finish.  And of course that wand!

I'd really like to hear what you think of this mascara and welcome any feedback you may have on this or any other product.

Until next time
