This is the latest mascara from L'Oreal to join the "Voluminous" family. The 'Power Volume' intrigued me right away. However, I didn't know what to think about the '24H' part. First thing that came to mind was waterproof and hard to get off. Two things I don't care for in a mascara. First, it's not waterproof. Second, it comes off very easily with makeup remover. So, no worries there if you were thinking the same thing. I've seen this on special displays at Target but hanging with the other mascaras at the drugstores. I picked mine up at Kroger {local grocery store} for a great price around $7.

First Impressions: Nice packaging. It's the same as the previous Collagen mascara. It has a nice click top so you know it's on tight and won't dry out. The brush is very large. The packaging says 'Mega Brush' and they are not kidding. It's about an inch long and very full. Next I noticed a slight smell. This is something I got used to after using a few times but it was sort of strong right off.


From the Packaging: ...new formula with collagen spheres and mega brush gives lashes 15x more impact and 24 hours of volume for fuller-looking, plumped up lashes. No flakes, smudges, or clumps.


Overall Thoughts: It is a very volumizing mascara. I got both volume and length out of it, which I love from a mascara. I didn't notice clumps, but did have a tad bit of smudging on one upper lid after a full day of wear. This could have been because I was wearing a cream shadow but it was set with a primer so I'm not sure. This isn't something I normally deal with. Maybe it just gave me that great of lashes that they were longer? Who knows.

My only real issue with this mascara is the brush size. You almost need to see it in person to believe how big it really is. While I love a large brush, they might have gone a tad overboard with this one. I would say I have normal size eyes and it was a little hard getting at the base of the lashes. The bottom lashes,  I tend to use a smaller brush for those anyway. My lashes felt soft even with several coats on, which was nice. Bottom line, it's a nice mascara that gives great volume if you don't mind the oversized brush.
