Review & Swatches: L'Oreal False Lash Wings and Volume Million Lashes Diamantissime

Hello! Today's review and swatches will be of two new mascaras, both by L'Oreal. I have already mentioned them in my post NEW in April :) First one is the new L'Oreal mascara False  Lash Wings in black.  Contains 7 ml. As a gift when I bought it I got also Volume Million Lashes Diamantissime in Black Diamantissime. Contains 8,5 ml.

First I'll talk about False Lash Wings. I like the packaging, very simple and elegant. It's also shiny so it can get dirty really fast and you can see your fingerprints on it. The brush is plastic, with bristles of different length, so you can reach all your lashes. This is also why they wrote butterfly effect fibers, but I haven't noticed any butterfly effects :) I really like all the L'Oreal mascaras, they are by far the best that I have had in all these years. And believe me , I've tried probably all together at least 35 mascaras or more. I started wearing mascara at the end of primary school, of course in secret, because my mom wouldn't let me. And than in high school I had quite a lot of mascaras, quite a collection. And even now... mascara is my must every day. But I don't mind leaving my home without it either, I learned to live without it. :)

 This mascara is very good because it doesn't smudge, it doesn't leave any spots, it stays put for hours. At the end of the day there is still no panda effect and no crumbling. It is also true that at the moment it is too liquidy, but this goes for almost all L'Oreal mascaras. In a week or two of regular use it gets more compact, but not too much. It still provides a smooth application. Removing causes no problem, I use my Alverde Calendula make up remover and it does the work just fine. It is not waterproof, but since it's that good at sitting still, with this one you will not wish for a waterproof at all.

The only thing a bit tricky is how to apply it correctly. Since I had no idea how to do it, I first tried with the short side and it thickened my lashes. Than I tried with the long side on top and it really elongated them. I am impressed. I like the result. MaxFactor Masterpiece series of mascaras and L'Oreal mascaras are the only ones that actually make a difference on my lashes. I can actually see my lashes are more defined. I still don't know if I am applying my mascara correctly or not.

And here are the swatches. To some it may appear as there is little difference, but I am really satisfied. Most of other mascaras just colour my lashes more black and leave them short and without any volume, barely visible I have any mascara on. And that with three or more coats! Swatches here have at least 3 coats on. No eyelash curlers - they don't work for me anyway.

And to the second mascara. I have had this one, only just in black version for a very long time. I know that  I shouldn't have kept it for more than 6 months, but it was a gift and it was really good. Now, comparing with False Lash Wings, not as good, but still. The best I had at the time.This one has a similar effect on me as the black version. Gives definition, colour, but does not elongate much or gives volume.  It looks more like a daily mascara to me and I am satisfied with this one too. It is called Diamantissime because it contains glitter particles. It shines and sparkles, yes. Maybe to some this is a rediculous idea, some may think " I will never use a sparkly mascara!", but in the end, the shine is not that visible when looking straight into someone's face. Some may think this is suitable only for a night out, but I sometimes wear it for every day. I see no reason not to go a bit more glam ;)

Again, plastic brush, regular shape with anti clump wiper. Also does not smudge, crumble or dry, stays put all day. No panda effect at the end of the day. It's not waterproof but still holds very well. Easy to remove, had no problems with my regular make up remover. The glitter is really tiny and causes no problems, does not go into the eyes, doesn't bother or irritate the eyes in anyway. Also when removed it goes off nicely, it doesn't stay on your face or lashes. 

And here are the swatches for the Diamantissime. The third pohoto shows you how close you must get to actually see it glitter ;)

And final comparison :

Left is Diamantissime ( also 3 coast) and right False Lash Wings. You can see that the sparkly one defines lashes, but doesn't give them much length or volume. Also you can see it looks lighter, because of the glitter parts it will never look as classic black as False Lash Wings. This one really elongated my lashes (3 coast or maybe a bit more), as for volume - not so much, but I don't mind. Anything I can get from a mascara will make me happy. As long as it is visible I actually have eyelashes. Sorry the photo looks a bit disoriented, I had my face slightly tilted when taking the photo. :) I like them both, but I hope the FLW will dry a bit, because at the moment it's quite too liquidy, which makes it harder to apply it evenly.  None of them clump lashes! So don't be afraid to try them :)

Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for reading!

  1. L'Oreal maskare so tudi meni najljubše. Poleg kakšne Maybelline. Zelo opisen review:) Ampak te diamantne pa ne bi preizkusila, ker bi se preveč bala, da mi bo glitter padal v oko:)

    1. Hvala :) Ja z L'Orealom imam bolj ali manj same dobre izkušnje, Maybelline pa ne.. ne vem zakaj ampak so mi vse po vrsti zanič. Jaz sploh pomislila nisem da bi glitter lahko šel v oko, dokler nisem pričela pisat review, tako avtomatsko sem jo uporabila.:) Sploh ni problema, pa še leče imam pa me ni še nikoli motilo :)

  2. Help to make your own eye appear vibrant as well as appealing. Specific produced by hands completely. With regard to celebration as well as every day make use of. Top quality as well as low cost. 10 sets associated with lashes within organic design, may be used for a lot of occasions. Thickening your own lashes make sure they are appear much more ugly. Could be eliminated through attention make-up remover
    Simple to make use of as well as comfy in order to put on.
