Breaking Beauty: Editors Try L’Oreal Paris’ Voluminous Mascara in Deep Burgundy

On this week’s episode of Us Weekly’s Breaking Beauty, Crista Lacqua and I (Robyn Merrett), tested L’Oreal Paris’ Voluminous Mascara in Deep Burgundy. 

Color cosmetics are all the rage right now (think pink eyeliner, blue eyeshadow), so we were both excited to try a shade-tinted mascara. In addition to the moody hue, the product — which retails for $9.99 — promises to thicken and lengthen lashes up to “5X their natural thickness,” per the item description. 

The mascara is also waterproof and is formulated to resist clumping. What a win, right? 

When I applied the mascara to my lashes, I didn’t immediately notice a color as advertised online, and it was much darker than I thought it would be. I will say, however, that the color was light enough to brighten my eyes, and it was clear it wasn’t a black mascara. I think I may have gone wrong by having a little leftover mascara on my lashes, preventing the burgundy color from coming through completely.

I suggest thoroughly cleansing your face and wiping your lashes with a wipe to really allow the product to work. The mascara definitely made my lashes look longer and they didn’t stick together, which is a plus.

Crista agreed that the shade made her eyes “pop a little bit,” which is especially hard to do with brown eyes. “I like it. This is fun and different — especially if you don’t want to do anything too crazy,” Crista gushed. 

We both agreed that this launch is an overall slay!
