Length for Days! The new L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

using the new L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara ($8.99) in Blackest Black
Tonight I discover myself considering imponderable things…

Like, does the flapping of a butterfly’s wings impact the sway of a husky tabby’s tum halfway around the world?


Or, if I were to wear L’oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara as well as bat my lashes at the guy making my hot cocoa at Starbucks (being generous with the whipped cream earns you great karma points!), does that change the sway of tabby tums everywhere?

These are the profound profundities (not really) that passed with one feline lady’s mind as she used the new L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara today ($8.99).

Pretty packaging
It’s all about the (asymmetrical) brush, man!

It’s quite neat… It looks a bit like a comb, doesn’t it? With the longer bristles on one side as well as shorter ones on the other?

Side view of the brush…

You just line up the side with the longer bristles at the outer corners of your lash line (side better to your ear), as well as pull the clean with your lashes from root to tip. Being asymmetrical is supposed to assist the clean thicken your lashes at the roots as well as truly flare those outer lashes.

Another view of the brush…
I’ve been utilizing it since late last week and, ya know, I like it. In terms of thickness, lift, separation as well as curl hold, I don’t believe it’s rather up there with Clarins Be long mascara, however the clean truly does seem to lengthen those outer lashes. Mine do look longer as well as more winged-out to me.

I bet this mascara would look truly fantastic with feline eye liner or any type of eye looks with lifted, lengthened outer corners.

Wearing two coats of Butterfly on my upper lashes…
As for my lower lashes, well, when I line up the brush’s longer bristles to do them, the clean feels a bit awkward. Something about the longer bristles, I guess… I’ve tried it a whole mess of times, however I haven’t been able to get it right, so for my lower lash lashes, I’ve been flipping the clean over as well as utilizing the shorter bristles instead.

Ultimately, I believe what we have right here is a straight-up lengthening mascara.

A fantastic one as far as length — plus, no flaking, smudging or clumping, as well as it laundries right off with soap as well as water — however it doesn’t provide the type of volume (like Chanel Le volume or YSL faux Cils) and/or extreme curl hold as well as separation (Clarins Be Long) I usually crave.

It’s a solid drugstore mascara, however one I don’t feel compelled to stockpile/hoard.

Now, if you mainly care about lash length, particularly at the outer corners, that’s where Voluminous Butterfly Mascara shines.
