L’oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes

Ad for Voluminous False Fiber Lashes

Hello, Lovelies!

 
I am obsessed with this mascara. As a makeup junkie, there are certain products that really get my juices flowing (um, sorry if that sounded really gross…)–none more so than mascara. Its unbelieveable how many I’ve tried.
 
I was standing in Walgreens the other night when I saw this beautiful ad for the new L’oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes. Oh. Another “false fiber” mascara…great. I have tried many, Fiberwiig and the other L’oreal one (the one with two steps, can’t for the life of me remember the name right now)–all with mediocre results. I have a product by Phillipe Chansel, his line is called Ready to Wear and it sells on HSN, that is basically the fiber part–and I like it for the effect it gives. The only problem is that I wind up with thousands of tiny little fibers all over my face: think eyeshadow fallout to the umpth degree. No good. So, my expectations weren’t really all that high for this mascara.
 
I have to tell you, I am impressed! I have really short, squatty lashes. Here is a photo of them, no mascara.

 And here I am with ONE COAT of the Voluminous False Fiber

Do they look like false lashes? Nah. But they look sooooo much better with this mascara on! Here is another view, first with nothing on.
 

Again, no mascara

I apologize for the picture quality, I look like a deer caught in the headlights, I know! haha Ok, back to the before and afters. Here is me with ONE COAT of this mascara again.

ONE COAT!

PFI. Pretty…incredible. Just for fun, I compared it with my new Benefit “They’re Real” Mascara…
 
It took two coats to get Benefit to look like this…
And again, ONE COAT of the Voluminous

PFI. Seriously, PFI. I cannot imagine being without this mascara now.

 
I was posting this on Beautylish, and a girl said “Well, that’s false advertising because they don’t look fake…”. She’s right, these are clearly my own lashes. In the ad, they claim that it will give you a false lash look, and it does not do that at all. Its a shame that cosmetics companies feel they need to say these things, false lash mascaras are the new “thing” and so I guess they feel that they need to say that. Silly. All they need to say was “this is a PFI mascara”. Why not just call it PFI? I don’t mind it. That would be an honest ad. Do you wonder if Gwen Stefani felt bad as her makeup artist for the shoot applied those lovely FAKE lashes? Don’t we mind that we are deceiving the public anymore?
 
Anyway, here’s the rub. This is a great mascara that unfortuneately a lot of people will be disappointed with because they chose to lie about their marketing. Anybody in their right mind should know that NO mascara is going to make you look like your real lashes are false lashes. If you want that look, you are going to need to put on false lashes. But, this is an amazing mascara. I don’t need to go through any scoring system to let you know that this is a perfect 20 in my book. The only other mascaras to ever get this from me are CoverGirl Volume Exact, CoverGirl Lash Perfection, MAC Haute & Naughty and Maybelline Full N Soft. This mascara holds its own with those, if not surpassing every single one of them. No, wait, that’s not fair. Haute & Naughty has two wands, so it may be a little bit better. I am not sure, now that I really think about it. Ugh.
 
I mean to say that what this mascara does, it does pretty …incredibly well.
