Loreal Butterfly Mascara - Review

TGIF!!!  I hope everyone's week is going fabulously!  Today is actually my 2 month blog anniversary so yay for that!  :))

Today I'm going to talk about the L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara.  Tons of other beauty bloggers have already reviewed this mascara and loved it.  Here are my thoughts.

I bought this for $7.99 at Target.
First, the brush of this mascara is of the spiky plastic variety.  The shape of the wand is sort of like a wing and it's supposed to really grab those outer side lashes.



 L'oreal claims that this will achieve "dramatic fanned out volume".  They say this of the formula: "unique Cocoon Fibers instantly wrap lashes in a soft, delicate veil to create silky, spectacular lashes that flutter."   Um, ok.

Below are photos of my bare lashes, and then lashes with one and two coats of mascara.

Below are my lashes after one coat of the mascara.  They look good, dramatic, black.  This a very wet mascara which causes it to be very messy and as you can see I got a lot on my upper lid.

Check out how 2 coats of this mascara looks on me.  It was a disaster, talk about tarantula eyes! This wasn't just a fluke either, I tried this a few times and each time, the second coat looked terrible.

Am I missing something here?  How is this so popular!?  I've worn just one coat to work a few times in hopes that the formula will dry out a little so I can try doing 2 coats again, we'll see.  Although, even just the one coat some days makes my lashes spiky by sticking them together unless I'm super careful.  And I have to be careful not to get any on my eyelid either!  This mascara is just way to fussy for my liking.  Bummer.

  5. Happy blogversay dearest! I'm so so happy you've joined the blogging world and we've become friends through this!

    I've heard a ton of raves and one rant from one of our blogging friends about this mascara. I'm counting my tallies, and now that's two rants, lol. I'm happy though to hear your opinion because I really want to buy it and try it BUT because I'm seriously stocked up on my mascara until next year, it makes me have resistance to buying this lol.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend love! XOXO

  6. Happy 2 months!!! We are so glad you've joined us!! We love having you! This mascara was mediocre for me. It is not the worst. I have found the best results by layering it with other mascaras. It gives good length but that's about it. I think it stinks. I always seem to make a huge mess with this mascara. Thank you for posting this because it definitely didn't get rave reviews from me.

    1. Thanks sweet lady!
      Oh, so glad you weren't loving this mascara either! Ugh, I always forgetting about the option of layering mascaras. Maybe I'll give that a shot with this one. And yes, it's soooo messy!

  7. Oh no! Girl that is bad lol. I'm not sure if you just got a bad one or what it was. I really like mine though! I had to work with it a little bit to figure the wand out, but the formula never gave me any trouble! So sorry the tube you bought didn't work out for you. Maybe sometime in the future you can try it out again!
