When I saw that BzzAgent was launching a campaign for L’Oreal’s Voluminous Primer and Mascara in Blue Cobalt, I was immediately excited because blue is my favorite color. Also, having already tried a luxury brand mascara in the same color, I have been longing for the same quality but with a more affordable price point. So I knew I had to try it out. I was throughly impressed with the primer, which serves as a base to prep the lashes and maximizes the impression of the mascara. It was easy to apply, not thick and gooey, which could give your lashes that “tarantula” effect. After all, who wants to look like a hairy spider?
Afterwards I applied the Voluminous Mascara in Cobalt Blue, which I highly recommend even for those who are too shy to wear color mascara. It is very subtle, which I appreciate because I could get away with wearing it during the day and night. The mascara applies well, is not clumpy and dries very quickly. My lashes are still soft after application, which is beneficial because some mascaras I have used in the past made them dry and hard, which I think causes breakage. The color is also suitable for my skin tone. I like the shock factor it gives when people are close to me and they are pleasantly surprised that my lashes have a blue tint!
For those who prefer a natural look when seeking mascara brands, L’Oreal’s Voluminous Mascara does the trick. While my own lashes are long, this mascara gives them noticeably extra volume (as the name states) and length. Although Bzzagent sent me this complimentary mascara set I would definitely buy this when I run out because the wand works well and it is affordable. The cost for both the primer and mascara retails for about $10, and about $6 separately. For the price, the quality of the product is good and it comes off easily with facial cleanser, or with make up wipes. The color is fun, yet easy on the eyes, and I definitely see a difference in volume and length.
