REVIEW | Oriflame Volume Build Mascara*

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a fab week and looking forward to Halloween!! I have yet to pick out my pumpkin but I will do soon.  I love carving pumpkins, it is a bit of a tradition for me, I can't wait to show you my creation when it is finished.

Today I am reviewing the Oriflame Volume build Mascara (£8.45) in black, it also comes in prune.  I got this Mascara in my goody bag from the London Bloggers party and it sat in my drawer for a few months before I thought I would give it a test run.

The packaging is simple, much like your average drugstore mascara wand.  I quite like the colours they have used, nice and girly.  The only thing I would say is that the branding is not super clear, you have to look at it for a minute before you can work out which brand it is.

On to the wand, which I like. It is broader at the outer section becoming narrower at the tip, it comes out the packaging very easily and there is not too much product on the wand so no need to wipe off any excess.

The consistency of the mascara is just right, not gloopy or too thin.  I can't stand it when mascara smudges all over your eye area when applying, but no such problems with this one.  The product goes on to your lashes really easily and it does exactly what it says on the tin easily and efficiently.  You can build your lashes to your hearts content and quite frankly I am in love!
It is rare to find a buildable mascara with such a great consistency, it doesn't dry too quickly allowing for the layers of product to be build up but it isn't too problematic with drying time either. I don't know how they did it, but they have!

This is fast becoming my new favourite mascara and I can't believe it sat in my drawer un used for all those months!  I would recommend this to anybody, a great great product...  A dupe for Benefit's they're real mascara? Maybe even better!

What do you think lovelies? Have you tried this mascara or any Oriflame products?
