Is it worth it? L'Oreal's Mega Volume Collagen 24 hr Mascara

This was a spur of the moment purchase at the weekend. I’m sufficiently stocked up on Mascaras, but I was in Superdrug and there was £3 off, need I say more.

 The first thing you notice is the chunky brush. I’m not normally a fan of large brushes, I tend to prefer the skinny ones that let you manoeuvre to the root of the lash, then drag them up to new heights. That said, large brushed mascaras do tend to be quick and easy to apply and this is no exception. It coats lashes very generously with the blacker than black collagen enriched formula. There’s no clumping and despite the large brush, it’s easy to handle, and as it’s slightly curved at the end, it’s nimble enough to get into the corner of the eyes.

Now I’m not sure about its thickening credentials, it doesn’t separate and create the illusion of more lashes, like my beloved They’re Real. There is some volume, but for me, this one’s more about lengthening and curling, in fact my lashes curled a lot! Overall I’m happy with the result, it’s not quite the wow factor but we don’t need the false lash look every day, do we? My lashes looked long and dark and, well, “done”. It’s very long-wearing. I haven’t challenged its 24 hour credentials but it wouldn’t surprise me if it did last that long. Fortunately, and this is very important to me, it washes off easily and without any clumps of fibres.

I wouldn’t say it’s as good as L’Oreal’s Telescopic False Lash Effect Mascara (read review), but it's easier to handle and more of an everyday mascara. Mega Volume Collagen 24 Mascara RRP £9.99 out now
