Voluminous False Fiber Lashes($8.95) is a fairly new mascara from L'Oreal that claims to deliver lashes that look fuller, longer and sculpted, without the clumpiness, almost like false lashes . The mascara uses a unique blend of short and long rayon and nylon fibers that is also used to make false lashes. Although the packaging looks bulky, it is not. I think the gold packaging makes it very classy looking as well.
The wand has a lot of short, thick bristles that looks like it will do a good job for sparse lashes like mine. But, it feels a little scratchy and the formula feels a little dry which eventually leads to a lot of flaking. Even after using a lash comb, there was quite a bit of clumping that made multiple coats a little difficult. I do however feel it did a good job lengthening my lashes. If your lashes are already in good condition and you don't need too much volume, this would work. Whatever be the case, this mascara needs a lot of patience if you want lashes to look flared and separated especially when doing two or more coats. This mascara would have been a better one if it came with a lash primer/prep that protects lashes from the dryness and prevents it from becoming too stiff.
This is how it looks after a good two coats, taken on two different days. Let's just ignore my unruly brows!
Overall, the L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara is not something that helps my short, stubby lashes to a great extent. The Original Voluminous Carbon Black is one of my all time favourite mascaras since it gives me a lot of volume without weighing down my lashes or making it stiff which is where this mascara needs improvement. If your lashes are like mine, you need to be very patient and work with the formula since hurrying up could lead to too much clumping that could make lashes appear limp and glued together. If you have pretty good lashes to start with, this maybe something that you could use for a little length and volume. Even in that case, be sure to be really patient with the formula to avoid clumping.
