L'Oreal Butterfly Mascara Review

Hello everyone!

Today I posted a video review/demo on L'Oreal's newest mascara called Lash Out Butterfly. If you are wanting to see a demo/ before & after, head on over to my YouTube channel. Of course, a review is in order since the claims and packaging is very...let's just say gimmicky. I am surprised that I actually do like this mascara and I have been happy with the results.

I haven't noticed any flaking, smudging or clumping with this mascara. I've had mine for a while going back and forth with my feelings. Overall, it's a good mascara that adds volume and length. I am very picky with mascaras and there are only but a few from this brand that I actually like and keep repurchasing.

Closer look at results
 I love the results :) As you can see, this mascara doesn't clump and it's a nice rich black formula. One thing I do have to mention is that the very first use this formula is slightly wet. I recommend letting is hang out in your mascara stash for a week or two and it'll be perfect.

Outside packaging
The wand is very different. There isn't a drugstore brand mascara that has an applicator like this one. I made the photos larger to showcase the design and bristles. I feel this applicator may look "gimmicky" but it's practical and does work.

opens up slightly like butterfly wings

that is more like a comb.
The underside of this wand is like a standard rubber comb mascara which helps extend the lashes and remove any clumps should they appear.

So overall, I give this mascara 2 thumbs up! L'Oreal did a good job with wand design and formulation. This product can be purchased at any of your local drugstores for right around $8 (prices may vary depending on the store). I hope this quick review was helpful. Let me know if you have any feedback, I'd love to hear from you.
