L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara Swatch In Deep Burgundy

L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara Swatch In Deep Burgundy

Hello! As you saw yesterday, the L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Cobalt Blue was a bust. And, unfortunately, the mascara sucked in Deep Burgundy, too. Whomp whomp. I can’t say that I was surprised when I gave it a shot and it wasn’t that great but it’s always disappointing to buy a product, test it out, and have it be an epic failure. But, hey, it happens and now you know what not to buy! Let’s get to it:


Despite not being crazy about the mascara formula, at least the Cobalt Blue shade offered some hint of the color – albeit not much! And that is my main bugaboo about the Deep Burgundy hue. I was expecting something more shocking and ended up with brown lashes. I was hoping to see the deep red more clearly and it did not translate that way at all. It applied brown, it dried brown, and even in natural lighting it didn’t show any of the shade that I thought I bought.

And, of course, it must be said again that the formula for this mascara is far from impressive. My lashes looked stumpy while wearing this product and I can’t deal with that. Lol, the mascara clumped and it stumped and it just wasn’t a good look all around. This begs the question of “what’s the point” because this mascara did the polar opposite of what it should do. No volume, no length, and not even a fun color to appease me. Huge disappointment and I wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy… Well, maybe. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Which product have you been disappointed with recently? Which product have you been obsessed with? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

  1. Thats lame . I remember Manic Panic used to sell pretty neat colored eyeliners back in 2008-2009 . My favorites were the purple and the atomic turqouise. The hair dyes never really worked out for me but the mascaras were awesome!


  2. Wow, that’s not burgundy at all! Thank you for this review – I’ll stay away from these mascaras. I was recently disappointed by Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil byThe Face Shop. Bought it because of the overwhelmingly positive reviews, but didn’t get the hype at all. It doesn’t emulsify like a cleansing oil should, leaves an oily residue on the skin, and the fragrance is too strong. Repurposed it for cleaning my makeup sponge – at least it’s useful for something! ๐Ÿ˜‚


    • I was so disappointed! And lol I hate when I’m like the one person who doesn’t agree with all of the positive reviews so I’m glad you were able to use it for something. I always have to begrudgingly finish the product waste not want not lol

      • Yes, exactly! I hate wasting anything (it’s like a pet peeve, but on another level ๐Ÿ˜‚), and it’s okay if it’s cleansing oil or shower gel, but makeup is impossible to repurpose, well except for giving it to someone who likes it. To be honest, didn’t expect such letdown from L’Oreal!


      • Me too!! The color was disappointing enough but the mascara in itself was awful. Like my lashes seriously looked shorter than if I didn’t have any mascara on at all and I didn’t even know that was possible haha

      • These are the moments when I think ‘do their product testing team just release this without even trying?’ ๐Ÿค” Really makes me wonder, because some products are just on another level of ‘bad’ like mascara that makes lashes shorter ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
