Once a week I will be reviewing a popular “drug store” makeup product & review/rating as if it were one of my “bible” department store products. Maybe I will find cheaper, wallet friendly dupes for my high end favorites!
Ratings 1-10. 1 being garbage. 10 being holy grail
Welcome to week one of my drug store makeup reviews! As most of you know from my Instagram & Twitter accounts, high end makeup is my guilty pleasure!!!! I spend way more on makeup than I would like to admit. These days I have so much high end makeup that I have started to call it my “Makeup Collection” since I just own ridiculous amounts of it. I even have it displayed in a glass cabinet in my bathroom.
One of my 2018 Goals is to stop being a ridiculously high end makeup snob and actually try more wallet friendly products. I swear the older I get, the more I realize being a brand whore isn’t all it’s cracked out to be. Just because a product has a designer label slapped onto it, doesn’t mean it’s worth the loot. I’ve wasted so much hard earned cash on designer makeup that I literally ended up tossing because it was junk with a fancy label. Time to give that habit of buying things because of a label and try some more wallet friendly products!
For my first of many Drug Store Makeup product reviews, I decided to try out the L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara. With huge displays everywhere I look, I can’t help but wonder if it’s fab or crap!
Mascara is one product I haven’t found a holy grail product for, but if I were to name the mascara I buy over and over, it would be Younique. Will L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara come close to my go-to Younique? Read on to find out!
L’Oreal describes this product on their website as:
L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara is their first pro-lash kit mascara for super-volumized, super-lifted, super-extended lashes.
How to Use-
First start by applying Step 1 to thicken your lashes and volumize to the maximum. Then apply Step 2 to stretch your lashes to the extreme and create a superstar look!
Is L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara the best mascara I have ever tried? The answer is no.
I still love my Younique mascara because it gives my lashes an over the top volume/length look. However, I do not regret purchasing L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara either since this mascara does give my lashes a nice, over the top fullness that last throughout the day, just not as intense as Younique.
I love my makeup to look like I’m wearing makeup and you could definitely tell I was wearing mascara while rockin L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara, which is a plus for this girl with blonde eyelashes! You could actually see my lashes!!! L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara is also super easy to remove when I'm ready to take it off. I wasn’t left scrubbing my eyes forever with makeup remover.
On a scale 1-10, I will give L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara an 8!
That’s right, an 8 & a Yay!!!! I really wasn’t expecting to get decent results from a product I spent $9.99 on at Walmart, but I did. I will forever call L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara a “poor woman’s version of Younique” since I feel L'Oreal was trying to go for that over the top, glam, Younique affect with this mascara since this is a fiber mascara that you can build up lashes with.
When I go to do my yearly purge of my makeup, I will definitely be tossing L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara in my keeps pile. A good backup for when my go-to mascara runs out.
If Youniqie is out of your price range, L'Oreal's Voluminous Superstar X Fiber Mascara might be a good cheap alternative for you. You will just have to build your lashes a bit more with this mascara than you would with Younique.
