I'd been looking for a new waterproof mascara because my favorite had been discontinued. I had tried several other brands and was not satisfied. But then L'Oreal caught my attention with the gold packaging and the "blue voluminous strip" info. AND Bam! I saw the waterproof logo on the packaging... Bought it, tried it, loved it!!! (This was my first time using a L'Oreal product.) I loved it so much I bought it for my mom, she loved it too :D
I go to aquatics exercise classes, swim laps and it stays on. Last Sunday, cried my eyes out at the movies, it DID NOT flake or smudge! This mascara has made it through it all! I've left it on til' the next day and it's looked great. I do use another brand of make up remover to take it off though. The L'Oreal brand didn't work for me :( don't know why...
I must confess I tried two other mascara brands and came back to my "L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes." I use it everyday too. When I want a more dramatic look, I use "Voluminous False Fiber Lashes" (also waterproof) over "Voluminous Million Lashes." But then it doesn't last as long. Overall, I am very pleased with L'Oreal!
I have also started using L'Oreal Visible Lift Serum Absolute Foundation SPF 17 and really liked it. Definitely recommend their products and I don't have to pay an arm and a leg for them!
