L’oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara Extra–Black Review

Hello everyone, today I will be reviewing one of my most coveted Mascara with a name that can make any girl go weak in her knees. I was smitten by its drool-worthy packaging and heart throbbing advertisement where the model flaunts eye lashes to die for. So here is my review on L’oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara in “Extra–Black”.


Product Claims:

  • Don’t just volumize, millionize your lashes with our New mascara: Volume Million Lashes.
  • The in-built excess wiper removes excess mascara for no clumps and the millionizer brush separates lashes for a fanned out lash look
  • The Millionizer brush has a multitude of bristles to separate lashes for a fanned-out lash effect. The elastomer applicator is ultra flexible with both long and short bristles to coat each lash evenly from root to tip.
  • The excess wiper removes excess mascara. It leaves the brush coated with just the right amount of formula to achieve maxed up volume with no overload and no clumps.

Ingredients:- Aqua/Water, Paraffin, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Cera Alba/Beeswax, Cera Carnauba/Carnauba Wax, Acacia Senegal/Acacia Senegal Gum, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Phenoxyethanol, PEG/PPG-17/18 Dimethicone, Steareth-20, Phenethyl Alcohol, Sodium Polymethacrylate, Propylene Glycol, Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Hydrogenated Palm Oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Disodium EDTA, Polyquaternium-10, Soluble Collagen, Silica, Panthenol, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Atelocollagen. May Contain: CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499/Iron Oxides, Mica, CI 75470/Carmine, CI 77288/Chromium Oxide Greens, CI 77289/Chromium Hydroxide Green, CI 77007/Ultramarines, CI 77891/Titanium Dioxide, CI 77510/Ferric Ferrocyanide.

Price:- Rs.700 for 9ml

Shelf Life:-  30 months from the Mfg date (6 months after opening)

Packaging:- The mascara comes in an elegant black bottle with gold accents. The golden metallic cap closes with a click sound to the bottle ensuring that it’s perfectly locked. The chubby tube grips nicely between fingers and wouldn’t slip.


The brush has a flexible neck with huge number of plastic bristles which will cover large eye lash area in a single stroke. It claims to contain a wiper just inside the tube to remove excess product but I didn’t find it much functional as there is always surplus amount of mascara on the want as well as on the tip which needs to be removed manually.

My experience with L’oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara Extra – Black:-


The mascara coats eyes lashes with its intense black color making them appear darker and denser. It gives a lovely fanned out look to my lashes and the flexible brush aid eye lash curling which open up my eyes instantly. However, I feel that the inner bristles are bit too small to cover inner eye lashes with ease.


The mascara gives an amazing False Eye Lash effect and also holds the curl full day which makes it a great choice for parties. It isn’t waterproof mascara but it wears whole day without flaking or running down the eyes. Due to its slightly creamy formula it doesn’t make lashes crunchy unlike  Maybelline Colossal Mascara though it needs a bit of effort to comes off completely with an eye makeup remover.

The formula of L’Oreal Million Lashes Mascara is slightly wet which may leave marks on your lids or under eye area if you flicker eyes immediately so, let it dry for few seconds and save your eye makeup. Due to its slightly thin formula, the excess amount on eye lashes may lead to clumping and spider lashes so be careful while working with this mascara and don’t go for more than 2-3 coats.  Also, it has a disgusting chemical smell which I hate.

Pros of L’oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara Extra – Black:-

  1. Intense Black Mascara
  2. Provides Thickness and Volume but lengthening isn’t great
  3. Curl eye lashes naturally
  4. Gives false eyelash effect
  5. Lasts whole day
  6. Doesn’t Flake
  7. Classsy packging
  8. Fabulous Brush
  9. Makes a great party wear mascara

Cons of L’oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara Extra – Black:-

  1. Prone to clumping
  2. Has strong chemical smell
  3. Takes time to dry completely
  4. Removal isn’t that easy

Recommendation:- L’oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara Extra – Black is an pitch-black mascara which thickens lashes, provides volume and lengthens them to a certain extent but definitely nothing like its overstated claims. It has a great brush which gives a wide-eyed look that lasts all day but it will start clumping with more than 2 coats so go easy with it. Though, it isn’t waterproof but lasts whole day without flaking and doesn’t give me raccoon eye either. Gives an unusual dramatic falsies effect which makes it suitable for parties. Recommended!


Rating:- 3.5/5

    I love the effects but somehow. I can’t convince myself to spend so much on a mascara that won’t even last me 6 months.. 🙁

      Me too like its dramatic effect …but Rs.700 for a mascara is definitely heavy on pocket…
      This 6 months constraint with every mascara so I would prefer to invest in Everyday Mascaras than these .. 🙂 🙂
      I have been lusting for this so bought it out of curiosity… 🙂 :Pure Indulgenceee:
