L'oreal Ultra-Volume Collagene [REVIEW]


If you are a female you want great eye lashes. Why you say? Because! It makes your eyes look bigger, sexier and well... frankly more attractive. I know I want great lashes. Don't you? And if we are one of those that are unfortunate enough to be born with either short and thin lashes well what can we do than to nothing more than to rely on a good mascara.

However the problem comes when we need to find that elusive mascara that will give us the perfect eye lashes that are shown in commercials (mind you no amount of mascara will increase the number of lashes). I say look no more. For the L'oreal Collagen Extreme" is the solution and answer to your prayers. Well at least for persons who have long but thin lashes.

I have been looking for quite some time for a mascara that is cheap and performs. This baby makes my eyelashes look like a baby doll and boy do I love it. I had this conversation with some friends and they mentioned that my eyelashes (L'oreal ) was capable of causing a sand storm. and after thinking about it I agreed! but then I had a a more high end mascara that is capable of causing a hurricane.... I have yet to find one that is capable of causing a tornado!

And... there you have it, Hence forth when I describe a mascara as being capable of a sand storm you should know what I mean. XD

Back to the mascara, I would say that this mascara has a decent sized brush though a bit on the larger side. It is decent to use on the lower lashes. Though it may cause some smudges if you are not used to it, it's also waterproof. You might need a decent makeup remover to get the mascara off. Meaning Johnson Baby Oil might not do the trick, however there are some brands that I have tried that works, they are,

1. L'oreal Eye Makeup Remover
2. Eture Eye and Lip Makeup Remover
3. Revlon Makeup Remover
4. And all the High End brand's makeup remover.

However I have found that 100ml olive oil infused with 3 drops of lavender essential oil does the trick quite well.

It also has a problem of clumping. However I have found that this is one of those mascaras that would function like new once the brush is washed every 20 applications or so. You can wash the brush with a few drop of makeup remover mixed in with soap.
I also find that after one month of using this mascara that it had yet to develop the spidery effect.

Looking at the overall performance of this mascara i would give it a 7/10.

Its great & its cheap what more could you want?

Pros: Cheap, great volumising effect, works on one coat but looks fantastic with several more coats of mascara, works like new when brush is cleaned.

Cons: clumps up after 15 uses, does not lengthen, the brush clumps up, a little bit difficult to apply on the lower lashes.
