And the verdict? Disappointment. Overall, it’s a decent mascara. The fat plastic wand lifted and defined my lashes and they were noticeably more voluminous. However, L’Oréal’s biggest claim with this mascara is to enhance the colour of your eyes. It’s available in three shades - for blue, brown and green eyes. The mascara goes on black despite the colour in the tube; you can see mine (for blue eyes) appears navy. But L’Oréal fail to deliver - despite examining my eyes intently and ordering friends to stick their faces into mine and get a load of my dazzling baby blues, I, and my suffering friends didn’t see one bit of difference to the colour of my eyes.
My biggest fault with this mascara, however, has to be the flaking. After just one coat and 30 minutes of wear I’m left with little black flakes under my eyes and down my cheeks. This is just unacceptable for a mascara of this price. I’ll be sticking to my Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express mascara, my absolute favourite at the moment.
