This was ok. It darkened my lashes, didn't lump or clump, brush was easy to handle and made them a bit thicker and longer. Nothing really dramatic, but enough difference to tell something was my lashes.

I always tend to purchase L'Oreal mascaras since their formula tends to be darker than the other drugstore mascaras. My main gripe about this is that it flakes like crazy!! No matter how fresh the tube is, I'm forever wiping flakes off my cheeks, often quite soon after application. The formula itself is a little moody too, sometimes I apply and it looks fantastic, other times it clumps and doesn't separate well at all. It also dries out sooooo quickly! Honestly I really don't know why I keep repurchasing this except I've tried so many bad mascaras, I'm afraid the next one will be worse. I'll take flakes over raccoon eyes any day. But I think I've finally reached my limit. Next one I purchase won't be this.

I HATE/LOATHE this mascara. I hate that I spent even a dollar on it. I have been using waterproof L'Oreal Million Lashes for a couple years now and even re-purchased (which for me to re-purchase a cosmetic and not try something new is a HUGE deal), so I decided on impulse to try a non-waterproof version since the concept and brush seemed the same. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the scent of this mascara, and it went on very similarly to my waterproof version, but once it dried it flaked off BAD all over my face, all day long. SUCH a mess. Very embarrassing to have people telling you that you have mascara flakes all over your face all day. I'd clean it up, but within a half hour it would be all over again. This was just two coats like I do with my other mascaras. Wanting to be fair, I tried it once more a different day when I would be home all day. Same exact thing happened. I had thrown away the package and the receipt as soon as I got it home (THAT's how confident I was that I would love it!) so I knew I couldn't return it...I just chucked that little jerk in the trash.

Interesting... I would have never thought this low-priced product could get you such nice results. I actually got it after seeing someone wear it so I gave it a try. My second favorite after Too Faced Better than Sex. Difference in price:3x

I did not like this mascara at all. It gave nice definition and did make the lashes look longer but it flakes off really bad. Not impressed and would not buy again

What is Loreal doing? Their products are just not living up to their name at all.
This flakes bad just like their others and is just a basic mascara.

L'Oreal was my go to brand through my teens and twenties. I rarely buy anything from L'Oreal anymore and am usually disappointed when I do. I purchased Voluminous Butterfly a few weeks back and hated it. I needed to tighten my budget and $30 mascara is just something I can do without. A friend recommended this to me and so far I am really liking this. This does flake after about 12 hours, which is pretty good wear and much better than the butterfly mascara. I found this washes off much easier than most mascaras, and doesn't leave residue on the skin or lashes after washing. It does have that same irritating floral smell that most L'oreal, Maybelline, and Lancome mascaras have

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.

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 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..?!?! And the more coats, the more my eyelashes started to look more wonky. Some would point straight and others would point down. Not cool.
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.
UPDATE 1/16/14: I went to reach for this since I wanted to use a non-waterproof mascara for the day and thought I would give this mascara another try. Well, the formula had dried out a little bit (which I prefer a drier formula) and I did not hate it as much as before! It holds a curl a wee bit better and it does lengthen my lashes. I'll keep my review at 2 lippies because it's not the worst but just didn't work for my type of lashes and the look I want to achieve.
