Loréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara Review, Before/After Photos

I’m always looking for that affordable mascara that delivers prestige mascara benefits—and I think I’ve found one! I’ve been testing out the new Loréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara, and it delivers such a gorgeous fanned-out effect with volume. AMEN!

I guess you could say I am a mascara connoisseur, or addict (take your pick!)—I own no less than 10 different types/brands at any one time. Some might find that wasteful (and no, I don’t hoard the old ones because that’s just gross!), but I swear, they all do different things. They’re kind of like bras—this one’s padded, this one’s for working out, one gives you cleavage…you get the picture, right? Same thing goes for mascara. I have different loves for each one of them, and I’m always rotating them in and out. But this baby right here? Voluminous Butterfly is my perfect little trifecta; it defines by beautifully fanning out my lashes, adds volume, and holds a curl to them, pushing those babies up!

Here’s what sets it apart from the others in my stash:

For starters, this is the first time I’ve seen a brush like this. It’s sort of like a funky, asymmetrical butterfly shape with a flexible arch structure. This is a rubber brush, with teeth that do not allow mascara to clump on them, yet still pick up the perfect amount of product to distribute evenly throughout the lashes as it’s brushed on. I can seemingly reach every last lash with this brush without poking my eye or getting mascara all over my eyelids in the process.

The formula has SUPER tiny fibers in it (1.2MM) that coat my lashes with volume instead of flying around and landing on my face throughout the day. I have that problem so much with fiber mascaras sometimes, this is one of the exceptions to the rule. There are three shades available; Black, Blackest Black, and Black Brown. I tried Black, and it’s exceptionally black and shiny, so I’m very curious to see Blackest Black, I’ll probably love it.

The winged-out effect, breakthrough brush, and silky, perfect formula earn Voluminous Butterfly a 5-star score in my book.

    Due to a recent crash in my site, it looks like these comments belong to my previous mascara post. SORRY GUYS! I can’t figure out how to import them over there. My most sincere apologies. xo

    I absolutely love voluminous butterfly mascara. I have been using the blackest black and it is the best I have ever used by far. The brush is really amazing too. I love the arches that are on one side (great for top lashes) and how it has shorter bristles on the other side (great for bottom lashes).♡♥♡♥♡♥♡♥♡♥
