Can You See Me Now?: L’Oréal Paris Extra-Volume Collagen Mascara


Collagen seems to be on L’Oréal Paris’ mind these days, as the cosmetics giant has been releasing quite a few products that not only include collagen but list the ingredient in their names. Among these, you’ll find tthe Collagen Moisture Filler Day/Night Cream, the Collagen Lip Filler and the Extra-Volume Collagen Mascara.

For today, though, we’re gonna focus on staring collagen in the eye — literally — by discussing the new L’Oréal Paris Extra-Volume Collagen Mascara. Available in both waterproof and washable formulas (I suggest the waterproof), the mascara features L’Oréal Paris’ new  Hydra-Collagen formula, a mix of collagen and Hyaluronic spheres that sticks to lashes, lengthening and thickening them upon contact.

According to L’Oréal, the Extra-Volume Collagen Mascara will make lashes appear up to 12 times fuller. Now, it’s almost impossible for a lay person to quantify the difference, but I will say the results are beyond dramatic. Wanna see for yourself? Then check out the photo below. The eye on the left is coated with mascara, while the one on the right is mascara-free. Notice the vast difference? Insane, right? This is volume at its finest — it’s like pumping air into a flat tire or popping a microwaveable popcorn bag until it’s ready to burst.

Sure, it glides on with ease, but it doesn’t separate lashes, so you have to watch out for clumping. In fact, I’d suggest using a lash comb after applying the mascara to ensure your lashes don’t stick together.

But hey, besides that, we’re talking volume, drama, and intensity — everything women want in their mascara.

L’Oréal Paris Extra-Volume Collagen Mascara, $7.95. Available at LOrealParis.com and at chain drug, food and mass market retailers.
