Volume Million Lashes Comparison | Beauty

You may have read my previous post about my love for L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes 
where I literally waffle on about how much I love this mascara. I have been buying this mascara for literally years, ever since it first came out. 

But when I was in Boots recently I thought I would try out the Volume Million Lashes So Couture version, I wanted to see whether there was actually a big difference between the two. 

My Noir Excess one does look a little battered but hey, I did need a new one, but I kinda like the purple and gold colours of So Couture though. I must admit I didn't really know what to expect, I thought that they would be either exactly the same or completely different. The first thing I noticed was that the So Couture brush was so much smaller than my Noir Excess brush.

So Couture

You can see that not only are they two different lengths but they are two different shapes, the Noir Excess one seems to taper in a little about mid way down the brush where at the So Courture one is more of an arrow headed shape. I've got to be honest, I really don't like the brush as much as the Noir Excess one. Though So Couture has a very tapered tip which means you can really get into the corners of your eyelashes I just felt like I didn't really like the way it applied the mascara over my lashes. 

I love the drama round my eyes, my lashes make a statement, they are quite long but I just feel that So Couture doesn't leave my lashes with a POW that I have come to expect from Noir Excess. I believe that the formula may be the same in both mascaras but So Couture is a bit lack luster compared to what I'm used to. 

If I focus on just the product and not compare it to Noir Excess I think it's still a really lovely mascara, the brush does mean you can reach all of your lashes and It does separate the lashes, you 'll have no clumps. It makes them look good in a more subtle way but if you want eyelashes that make a bold statement then I don't think this is the one for you. 

Great product but I need high impact lashes, I'm going to stick with Noir Excess

Have you tried either of the L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara?


  1. I haven't tried neither of them! I love high impact lashes as well though so I guess if I was gonna go for one it'd be Noir Excess!


    1. Noir Excess all the way my dear! Thanks for reading!xx
