I’ve confessed to you before that I am a shameless mascara hoarder, but what I didn’t say is that within my excessive stash, there’s always a tube of L’Oréal Paris Voluminous. It’s been my all-time favorite for years. I often stray to try what’s new, but good ol’ LoVo is the one that I keep coming back to. I love the way the fat brush and thickening formula beef up my lashes and make them look super-dark. It has never let me down.
Which is why I feel guilty about my feelings for the new spin-off, L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as my beloved OG, but it’s kind of hard to resist. I mean, the shiny, futuristic tube is so seductive, and the rubber wand is pretty awesome, too. It looks a little strange because it has longer bristles at the base that grab and extend the lashes at the outer corner of your eyes. The result is a clump-free, fanned-out effect that’s sexy as all get out.
So, am I ditching L’Oréal Voluminous 1.0? No way! We’ve been together for too long. But Butterfly has definitely earned a permanent spot on my mascara A-List. And that, my friends, is saying a lot.
