While it looks a bit odd and even a little gimmicky, let’s have a look to see if it is worth your money.
What is the Unlimited Mascara?
L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Mascara is a lengthening and volumising mascara. The dual-positioning brush can be used in the straight position like a regular mascara, or in the bent position to reach lashes at the inner corners of the eyes. The formula contains latex polymers to help stretch lashes and make them appear longer and thicker.
Unlimited Mascara Packaging
The packaging is a little bulky, with a strange bulb like shape on the end. This makes it a little tricky to travel with or chuck into your handbag. The wand isn’t as long as your usual mascaras, but this didn’t affect the application or results. The brush itself is rubber with small varying sized nodes.
How does Unlimited perform?
From the first stroke, I was pretty impressed. Unlimited coated my lashes in a beautiful glossy black weightless formula, that definitely lengthened and added volume. I found the consistency to be on the wetter side, but I didn’t have any transfer issues. I was able to layer a few coats with ease. The only negative thing I did note was that the brush can make some lashes stick together, so I really needed to wiggle that bendy brush to aid in separation and prevent clumping.
During the day there was no transfer on my oily lids, no smudging, and no fallout. Plus, it isn’t too tricky to remove. Amazing.
Now, let’s talk about the brush. I am still a little unsure about the whole bendy wand idea. I have never struggled to apply mascara in the normal way, but I can see how the wand can really allow you to get into the inner corners, and to assist applying mascara to the bottom lashes. Now, I wouldn’t buy this mascara specifically for the bendy wand, but with the combination of this and the great formula, Unlimited really is a step above.
I have always gotten on well with Loreal mascaras, and Unlimited is no exception. It delivered great length, a boost of volume and a beautiful jet black shade. I noticed quite a few similarities with my absolute current favourite mascara, Climax by Nars. Unlimited delivers the same great lightweight, long fluttery lashes.
If you are a mascara fiend, or you love natural fluffy looking lashes, the Loreal Unlimited mascara should be at the top of your wishlist.
Unlimited is available directly from the Loreal website, otherwise, it will be dropping instore shortly.
