L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lash Mascara

Is it just me, or is the search for the perfect mascara the beauty equivalent of the search for the perfect pair of jeans? Some mascaras make your lashes look long, but not voluminous. Some mascaras plump, but make your lashes look stubby and clumpy. Really, it's such a pain. At any one time I have four or five mascaras in rotation just hoping that something will eventually work. Argh.

It really shouldn't come as a surprise that when given the chance to test out the new L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lash Mascara I jumped at the chance. Hey, why not add a sixth mascara to my pile... I'll try anything once! This unique mascara's claim to fame? Its formula contains nylon and rayon fibers, which work to make lashes longer and fuller by adhering to your own lashes as you sweep on the mascara. That definitely piqued my interest. And, I can't lie, those Gwen Stefani commercials make it look so darn fabulous...

So, I received my tube of L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lash Mascara, the waterproof edition. I normally avoid waterproof mascara because I hate the tug and pull game of removing it at the end of the day... but more on that later. I resolved to give it a try nevertheless. I applied the False Fiber mascara at the beginning of a normal work day -- two coats, just like my normal routine.

My first impression of this new mascara had to do with the ease of application. The formula was smooth and truly clump free. Like your standard California girl, I compulsively attacked my freshly coated lashes with an eyelash comb to remove all hints of clumping. But, in actuality, I probably didn't have to. The formula didn't mat up my lashes at all and it dried quite quickly, nicely avoiding eyelid smears. My lashes, already on the longer side (sorry, it's true), grazed my eyebrows when I opened my eyes wide -- my litmus test for lengthening mascara. The waterproof formula lasted all day without smudging and, to my surprise, removed easily with one swipe of a remover-soaked cotton ball.
