Every girl longs for long luscious lashes (well, except the lucky ones who already HAVE them - if that includes you, I hate you by the way!). I don't know about you, but I am constantly searching for the perfect mascar that will transform my lashes, but it's so hard to find this elusive product. There's so many different brands, and then so many different types of mascara WITHIN each brand - and they all promise their own special promises. Do I want longer lashes, or thicker lashes, or fuller lashes? Well, really I want all three, but the promises always seem to be split between the tubes, leaving me thoroughly confused.

Well, I suppose deep down what I really want are more DEFINED lashes. I want them to stand out. L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara helps me with this.

I first discovered this mascara last May - I was in Boots and on the hunt for an eyeliner. I was also in a bit of a hurry. Of course, as always happens when you're in a rush, someone stopped me. A girl from the L'oreal counter who decided to show me her eyelashes and tell me all about the miracle product that was coating them. Her eyelashes looked amazing and, despite my hurry, they kind of hypnotically held me there. Until she said "I mean, I have naturally long lashes anyway but . . ." Then I punched her. (I didn't really.) She lost me at that point, because I decided it couldn't be the product that was miraculous, it was clearly just her eyelashes that were miraculous! She was telling me all about the product, how amazing the brush was, how good it smelled (seriously, she was starting to get desperate now - I'mj not sure why, I didn't think L'oreal worked on commission) but she'd lost me by then. I left without even buying an eyeliner, but I couldn't stop thinking of the product. Eventually I HAD to buy it.

And you know what? It's actually one of the best mascaras I've ever used.

First of all, let's look at the packaging. It's fairly simple but still manages to have some pizazz, with its gold metallic bottle. It's definitely an attractive piece of make-up to have in your make-up bag or on your dressing table.

But what of the contents? After all, you can have the most beautiful looking product in the world, but it's LITERALLY what's inside that counts in the case of make-up. (The girl was right by the way - it actually DOES smell quite nice. Not that I tend to go around smelling mascara.) The aim of the mascara is to separate lashes and fan them out, but also to remove the clumps from your lashes. And it works!

The brush, called the Millionizer brush, is flexible and has a variety of different sized bristles, which helps you to get into the corners that can be hard to reach, and to help to coat each individual lash. It also has a lot of flexibility about it - it's not rigid and unbending like I've found some other mascaras can be. Also, as you pull the applicator out of the bottle, you hear a "pop" sound - as you pull it out of the neck of the tube, excess mascara is removed from the brush which also helps to eliminate the dreaded clumps.

I find that the product makes my eyelashes look longer, thicker and more defined and they are rarely clumpy. Which is especially amazing when you consider that I am a bit of an addict when it comes to applying mascara and, regardless of the brand, will always apply several coats of it! In addition, I wear contact lenses and this mascara doesn't irritate them at all, so it is good for fellow contact wearers, or those with sensitive eyes.

The product is £11.29 in cost so admittedly it is not as cheap as many of the mascaras going. However, I find it worth the cost, and each tube does last me several months - and trust me, I generally use a lot of mascara! It is available in black, brown, extra black and waterproof black. I LOVED the extra black the most, but I've been using the waterproof black of late as I have a watery eye problem when I go outside sometimes, and although the non-waterrproof didn't really run either, wearing the waterproof eliminates the fear of ending up looking like the Scream painting!

I would definitely recommend this product as it does what it claims and does it well. I will, however, be continuing my search for the Ultimate Mascara. Hopefully it will be cheaper than this one!
