L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara Review with Photos!

L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black is my holy grail mascara.  I had to put it to rest a little while back as my eyes formed a sensitivity to the formula or something.  Now, I claim Maybelline The Falsies as my go-to mascara.  I've skipped quite a few mascara releases.  Why fix something that's not broke?  I've been through enough mascaras to now know what I want and what works for me and what doesn't.

Well the raves and pictures around the web lured me into the seduction of the False Fiber Lashes' fat, gold, shiny tube. Listen to the claims: volumizing fibers, false lash/ sculpted lash effect; longer, sculpted and curled lash look from every angle.

If you're a reader that's been around for a while, you'll know that I'm a volumizing mascara type of girl.  That's criteria #1 for me.  Did this mascara deliver for my average length, thin lashes?

Don't ask me how many coats this is.  I have a pretty extensive mascara application process. (Roll, wiggle and tease.. approx 5-8 mins to complete, lol)

The formula for me was a standard volumizing formula.  The fibers are supposed to wrap and encase your lashes.  Yeh, I'll go with that.
The wand is a decent one. Not too fat and not too thin.  Just right.  I was disappointed that I didn't get to see the cobalt blue brush before dipping it into the mascara.  Seeing the cobalt blue bristles is just a preference, but wouldn't have anything to do with the look of my lashes, hehe.

The volume of my lashes from the mascara was a bit impressive.  ALMOST the look of mascara and primer on lashes without the primer.  I was taken aback by my dad's comment to me before heading out to a family dinner... "Your lashes look magazine worthy."  I heard mascara gods opening the clouds. WOW.  My dad is into details, but generally won't say too much unless when asked.  Unsolicited comments from him are usually about a lip or nail color... or fragrance lol.  They are still few and far between.

Volumized? Yes.  Sculpted? Maybe.  Curled? ..ehhh.  Satisfied? Yes. Impressed? Yes.  Would I repurchase again? Definitely.
