Spend Your Pennies: Voluminous Million Lashes Excess

Spend 'dem pennies y'all!!  Oh Em Gee.  The L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess is my new all-time favorite mascara.  Forget everything I said in my Top Drugstore Mascaras post.  Ok, don't forget it, those are still great, but this is way better.

Let's just address the one thing we're all thinking:  this packaging is not great.  Just terrible.  I mean, it would look great if I liked buying mascara in 1996.  It just looks very dated.  And being that I'm a HUGE sucker for packaging, especially with mascara, I never would have considered purchasing this under normal circumstances.  

However, I've actually tried the regular (not "Excess") Voluminous Million Lashes and loved it so I was eager to try this version.  My oh my, my friends.  This mascara gives my lashes insane length.  Like, it somehow creates length that isn't there.  Plus, the wand is the  It grabs each minuscule individual lash and separates them all so it basically looks like I just applied a strip of false lashes.  Also, I can't be sure because I don't own YSL's Baby Doll Mascara but from what I've seen, the wand looks incredibly similar.  Except this one won't wipe out your saving's account to get.  (Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating).  

Plus (there's more!), I find no need whatsoever to curl my lashes when I wear this.  The thing is, I don't ever actually curl my lashes.  I couldn't tell you where my lash curler is right now if you asked.  Do I even own one?  I have no clue.  However, I've noticed that some mascaras make my lashes look super straight or oddly heavy/droopy.  This formula isn't the slightest bit heavy and my lashes even look like they're slightly curled.  

So there you have it.  Spend your pennies!       


  1. I really like the L'Oréal False Lash Telescopic Mascara. I find it so easy to work with and it quickly builds lashes :O)

    1. One of my best friends loves that too! I still haven't tried it but I think it might be next on my list.
