I'd been hearing all sorts of stuff about Million Lashes by L'Oreal. When I saw there was an "improved version," I decided to buy that instead of the original. This mascara made my lashes somewhat long, but in an awkward way. I hate it! The brush is a weird shape and way too long. Not recommended. Will return and try out the original in hopes of better luck.

I thought id give this mascara a try. I had previously tried regular million lashes-which I found to be too dry of a mascara-and hoped this one was an improved formulation. Wrong! This one is quite the opposite experience to regular million lashes-it's just too wet. A lot of product comes out onto the brush, which is far too large. The brush makes it a little more difficult to get to the outer/inner eyelashes. The formula is a hard one to work with. I played with this mascara for about a week, finding the right angle and amount to avoid clumps. You basically have to be a mascara pro with mega-focus to nail it (clump-free) every time. All in all, Million Lashes Excess makes for a mediocre mascara. I wouldn't purchase it again, but will use it until it's done because I don't like to flush money down the toilet.

It gives a lot of volume that looks good on my upper lashes. I do get some clumps under application but I just brush them out carefully. I didn't find the right way to use it on the lower lashes. It looks like clumpy mess with some colored areas and some empty ones. So I have to use another mascara. However, this mascara falls out terribly. I look like drug addict by the evening with the black flakes under my eyes. I had to throw it.

I wanted to love this. I truly did. I had never really used anything other than department store mascara or the L'Oreal Voluminous Full Definition. I usually have 2 go to mascaras. But I saw a commercial for the Million Lashes Diamonds mascara and I had been dying to try it. So I bought a tube of it and absolutely adored the subtle shimmer and the amazing dramatic effect that the Million Lashes gave me. It literally looked like I had millions of lashes! So I didn't think I could go wrong with buying the Excess formula. I think that the formula of this one is a little thinner than its predecessor and I think that the brush is just too springy and long for my eye. Every time I applied this I couldn't seem to duplicate the same beautiful effect I got from the original. I couldn't get it to separate my lashes, they just clumped together and I had to get a toothpick to separate them. And because I felt I had to mess with my lashes to get them looking ok, I was getting some serious flaking from this because the product was drying as I was messing with them trying to get them to look right. I liked the pigmentation on this, it's really black. But I just couldn't get the technique for applying this down. I ended up getting so frustrated with it that I just pitched it and went back to my Full Definition. I think if I every buy another product from L'Oreal's Million Lashes Line, I will stick to the original in the Carbon Black shade. I did have good luck with that one.

Why such low reviews!? Yes, this stuff can get clumpy but if I'm careful enough, it looks like freaking false lashes on me. And they're so long they kinda scrape my eyebrows, no lie!

I thought this was a good mascara with a little experimenting. It's a wet formula, so take your time when using multiple coats (which you'll need if going for a more dramatic look). The brush is fairly large, so it's a little tough to get in the corners. It took some practice not to smudge it against my upper eyelid. It doesn't hold curl fantastically, so I have to curl once it's dry. The end result is really full and soft, but you'll need to perfect the technique. I had no flaking and it did last all day. I usually use Tarte LCF and have been having success with Revlon Lash Potion (another one that take practice). I like full, dramatic lashes.

I have never had luck with loreal mascaras. They have the tendency to clump and make my lashes so stiff and flakey. I have naturally long lashes but they lack in volume. I specifically look for a mascara that can layer well and can perform on its own. I decided to give this mascara a shot because the wand looked promising. Thick plastic base with short bristles. I felt like it would be perfect to get the hairs that my other "flimsier" mascara wands couldn't reach. But nope. Brush was fantastic, formula is meh. I honestly envy anyone who can make this mascara work for them.

This mascara is definitely my HG! I'm gifted with fairly thick upper lashes (my lower lashes are a bit sparse), and they're a bit on the long side. However, I do like them to be dramatic, so mascara is definitely a makeup product I cannot live without.
As for the scent, it smells like regular mascara to me. It doesn't overpower me at all, but I'm not too sensitive to such anyway. The color payoff of Blackest Black is absolutely, wonderfully black.
It's essential to TAKE YOUR TIME. If you don't work slowly, this can clump up really, really badly. It is also a standalone mascara that works best if you let it dry somewhat in between coats. I find that wiggling the brush adds to clumps.

I don't want to give this product 1 lippie because it's not the worst mascara ever, it just didn't work for me. I have short black lashes that are stick straight. I must use an eyelash curler before I apply my mascara. Now with that said, here is my review:
The formula is very wet. It takes forever to dry.
The color I received (a friend gave me this to try) was blackest black and believe you me, this was not the blackest black. This mascara is a gray/black. I even had to check the color on the packaging because I thought maybe I read the package wrong and it was really soft black...but nope, it said blackest black. Anyways, I applied this very wet mascara to my just curled eyelashes. I started at the base of my lashes and just ran the wand through. I did not do any zig zag motions because the directions said "place brush at base of lashes and gently swipe up to tip". It gave length, but nothing spectacular and the brush's shape was hard to get used to.
I will admit, I did not get any clumps, but as I went back to do a second swipe my lashes just began falling down. I literally saw them lose the curl, become straight and start falling towards my bottom lashes. So I immediately lost all my curl! What the..?!?!
Anyways, I will not say this is the worst mascara, but it just did not work for me. Maybe when they come out with a waterproof version I'll give it another shot but for now I'm tossing this one in the garbage.

Love this product. No clumping, the brush is great. Gives nice length to lashes. Takes a couple of coats but definitely a good mascara for the price.
