L'Oreal Volume Million Express Noir Review and Swatch

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Express Noir

I got this a while back and totally forgot to review it, sorry!


The packaging for this is actually really great. It's a striking metallic red with a black stripe and it does look really good in my make up drawer, makes it easy to spot and pull out in the morning when I'm only just about functional. It's a nice shape and easy to hold. The brush is one of those spiky ones I know tends to split people into love/hate. Personally I'm indifferent, and it works well enough without poking me in the eye or smudging stuff all over my bottom lid or cheek.

Lashes are lengthened and volumised to a degree. You can definitely tell a difference, as you'll see below.
It doesn't smudge or flake, so your lashes look great all day.


This smells really bad to me. I'm pretty sure it's just the product itself, since I bought it brand new and it smelled like that the day I opened it. But really, it smells bad.
Not as volumising as you'd believe from the name, I'm pretty sure my Maybelline Falsies was better.
The price! It's pretty much £11. Maybe it's just me but I don't want to pay that much for a mascara, not unless it's totally ground breaking, which this isn't.

 Or any recent looks, this is my daily mascara


It's a decent mascara, but not as good as I'd want for the price. Especially when I can get mascaras that I prefer for less. I think I'll stick to my Maybelline next time.


Priced at £10.99 and available wherever L'Oreal is sold, including Boots, Superdrug and most major supermarkets.


  1. Ohh its a shame that it wasnt as good as you had hoped, especially for the money! Great to see a blogger put out a nice honest, even review! Thanks for the info! x


    1. Thank you :) I really try to be honest in my reviews!

  2. It looks really nice on your lashes :) I have the L'oreal Voluminous Excess which looks quite similar to this one, and it also smells absolutely terrible. And I only started using it like two weeks ago. I can't stand how it smells!

    1. Yeah, the smell is horrific! At least it goes away when it dries
