L’Oreal Extra Volume Collagen in Black

Hey guys,

It been a while since I reviewed a mascara, because I tried to use the ones I already have so they don’t dry out. This is the latest mascara I bought and I am definitely looking to update my mascara collection. I have always been in love with L’Oreal mascaras since I was a teenager. They always made my lashes look long and with a lot of volume. I have quite average long lashes but with the L’Oreal mascaras, some people even thought I had fake lashes on, because they were looking so big.


So I went to my local pharmacy and bought a L’Oreal Mascara, this time it was the Extra Volume Collagen. When I saw the title “Extra Volume” and the thick brush it has, I was immediately bought. It cost me about 16 euros, a bit expensive for a drugstore brand but I didn’t mind as I knew for sure I would get immediate results. I loved it’s black sleek packaging, reminds me of some of the high end mascara’s.


Overall I like this Mascara, I am not in love with it but I do like it. To be honest I was expecting more Volume than the other Mascaras I have tried from L’Oreal. It does give some volume and I love that separates the lashes. This mascara is very dense and can be gloppy when you start a new tube of it. The brush is very fluffy so a lot of product is dispensed on the brush when you pull it out of the tube. In order to avoid too much product, scrape the side of the wand on the inside when you are pulling the wand out and it gives you a clean side of the brush to work with.


This mascara takes a practiced hand and isn’t ideal for someone new to applying mascara. It wears well, does not flake off and I like that it can be easily removed with cleanser and water, and a bit of eye makeup remover afterwards.

Overall it is a good mascara and I do recommend it to you guys, but don’t expect extra-volume. Well that is for now guys, Keep posted fore more reviews and make-up looks

  1. I haven’t tried this one but I always loved their mascaras. I also liked the 4D Architect one, I actually repurchased that plenty of times. The price tag is what made me switch to Catrice Mascaras to be honest, because apart from that, I love L’Oreal Mascaras.

    I think you’ll love the Million De Cils one, I’m sure you’ve seen it around and on YouTube (http://bit.ly/1aZ2a7v) – I bought it a number of times, it’s a very ‘clean’ non-clumpy finish, volumising mascara. And well…. you can always try The Giant from Catrice – it is probably my all time favourite and costs much less 🙂 (I reviewed it a while ago, but my lashes are tiny…. so you have to imagine better results on your long lashes)

    • Thank you for your comment Marija 🙂 I have to try come catrice products but unfortunately they don’t sell them in any pharmacy here. I do think it is a bit pricey for a drugstore brand especially for something that won’t last more than 2 months if you use it as frequently as I do.

      • Yes, but I do love them! In fact you sort of made me decide, that once I use up all of my mascaras (which is a lot or mascaras), I will JUST buy one or two L’Oreal ones – I think I miss them now 🙂
