L'oreal Volume Million Lashes So Couture So Black Mascara

I got this mascara ages ago (Christmas ages ago) and I've been meaning to write a post on it for a while. I'm terrible for buying new mascara, trying it once and finding it doesn't measure up to my favourite Maybelline one and then never using it again. I have 3 Rimmel, a GOSH one and something else sitting on the side that I kinda wanna sell but effort. 

So now that my fave two have officially run out I'm trying not to buy any more because I have so many mascaras to use instead and I need to save pennies. It's hard though. I still regularly try and scrape the inside of the tube of my beloved which havent quite made it to the bin yet (Empties post anyone). I'll probably give in soon but for now I'll persevere. 

So I got the L'oreal Volume Million Lashes So Couture So Black Mascara (what a mouthful) for Christmas. My dad was very proud of himself for picking this, a red lipstick and a gorgeous eyeshadow palette. At £10.99 its only a few quid more than my usual and the packaging is pretty snazzy,

Now as some of you may know I have a fear of the rubber brushes after I nearly took my eye out with one particularly vicious one (ahem twice). They just look so intimidating but I gave it a go and oh my I'm glad I did. I struggle to find the perfect volumising mascara as that is what I look for in life (Dont ask for much) but this gives pretty good volume. I also agree with the no clumping claim and it does leave the lashes less crispy than other mascaras I've tried. It made my lashes look pretty dam good and it doesn't flake off which is always a win as my eyeballs are a magnet for mascara flakes.

It's still hasn't beaten my favourite Maybelline (High standards) but it will do as a replacement and won't make my eyelashes sad and will keep my bank balance happy for a bit.

Please ignore my eyebrows. I was too lazy to pluck or do anything with them when I took these photos.

What is your favourite mascara?
