L'Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess Mascara - Review + Before and After

  I purchased this mascara when I was in Greece from the Free Shop because the Volume Million Lashes used to be my all time favourite mascara. I have quite thick lashes but they are really short , so a volumizing mascara is not normally my first choice,but since I loved my last one so much I thought I'd give this one a go.
  What it claims to do: "Our newest addition to the Voluminous family, L’Oréal Paris introduces Voluminous Million Lashes Excess, which combines bold volume with clean definition for an excessively dramatic lash look. Our legendary Millionizer brush is bigger than ever to separate and build each lash evenly from root to tip. The mascara features a built-in, anti-clump wiper that removes surplus mascara for a clean and impactful effect. Plus, the ultra black formula amplifies each individual lash for a dramatic lash effect."


  Now the name is clearly more attractive (Voluminous Million Lashes Excess) but I have to say I preffer the Volume Million Lashes since it has a thicker ,fatter brush ,which is the kind of brush I preffer. The brush this one has is considerablly thiner and longer, also it is a plastic brush just like the original one. The plastic brushes are the ones I like more (exception The Falsies by Maybelline) since I find they separate more.
  When I first tried it I didn't like it at all and I find this happens a lot to me when I first try a mascara. I start liking a mascara after a few more uses. Maybe I'm crazy but when the mascara starts drying I find it builds up better and it sticks more to the lash.

   What I love about this mascara is that is really black, it is indeed volumizing and it also gives a bit of lenght.
  I find that if you apply only one coat it does nothing. So ,for me at least, it needs a few coats, which is a bit time consuming. Also you have to be quite careful not to over do your lashes, because after two coats it can easily clump.

  To conclude I like this mascara, I will use it, but I'm not crazy about it and I don't think I will repurchase it.
  That being said this is the before and after:
