L'Oréal Air volume Mega Mascara

I have had a bit of a love/hate relationship with this mascara and it is one I really wanted to love because I like the description, how it is packaged and despite my awkwardness when choosing a mascara, I should like it a lot!
L'Oreal Air volume Mega Mascara
Here we have the airVolume Mega Mascara from L'Oréal is described as being 'as light as air' with a formula which has been whipped to add definition as it elongates the lashes without any hint or sign of heaviness. For me, choosing a mascara is something I talk about a lot because I am so picky.  It is by far my most favourite item of makeup and something I wear every single day.  I have fairly long lashes and I wear glasses for reading, writing and watching television, so I am looking for a product that I can wear without weighing down my lashes and without smudging with my glasses wearing - that means no overly wet formula and whilst I am not a fan of big thick bushy wands, I like something which can reach every lash.

Packed inside its metallic pink avant-garde packaging, which looks more gold than metallic pink, the tube has been specially designed to preserves the airy formula inside, thus ensuring it keeps as fresh from the first application as it does to the last.

As you can see, the wand is fairly thick with a lot of bristles and those bristles are fairly long. L'Oréal state that their length is to help evenly distribute the formula.  Being intensely black, I am thankful this mascara doesn't clump, smudge or flake everywhere, but and it is a big but, I do wish the wand had a slight curve to it so I could get to those corner lashes much easier. The end of the wand always has excess formula clinging to it which I find annoying, but it can be wiped off back into the tube.

The formula for this mascara has undergone testing so it is suitable for everyone, even those with sensitive eyes.  I haven't found it to be irritating in anyway, I like the intense black shade, I like the formula a lot but the wand I am not 100% sold on right now, hence my love/hate relationship with it overall.

The L'Oréal Air volume Mega Mascara is priced at £10.99 and can be found in Boots*, Lookfantastic*, ASOS* and similar sites.

  1. Sounds like a decent mascara! I love Maybelline and Loreal mascara I find that they work well.


  2. The packaging is so pretty. Its such a shame you don't like the wand because its a key element to any good mascara.

  3. I prefer a curved wand as well - this one looks annoying.

  4. I also love the packaging! I hate when there is so much extra on the end of the spoolie!

  5. I agree, I’d want a curved wand as well! Sounds like a decent mascara though!

  6. This sounds like a good mascara, I can be so fussy with them sometimes! xx

  7. It sounds ok but if I were to buy a L'Oreal mascara, it'd be Lash Paradise x


  8. This sounds lovely. I really love L’Oréal products and how affordable they are.


  9. Not tried this one before. I haven’t been wearing make up much this year xx
