I hope you’re doing well? In today’s post I’m going to be giving you a review on the new(ish) L’Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara £7.99. I’ve had this for about a month now and feel that it is time I shared my thoughts with you! The product was pretty hyped up on Instagram and Youtube – I’ve even spotted a couple of reviews here on WordPress already, so I thought it was time I give you my run down.
Before I get into the post I just wanted to remind you that I currently have my giveaway open! I’m celebrating hitting 250 followers so if you’d like to enter go to this POST! Okay let’s get into this review:
Let’s talk about packaging and design of this mascara. I picked mine up in black but there are 4 other varieties of this mascara; Black waterproof, Indigo, Lilac and Teal. Therefore the main body of the product is black and the the screw top is a lovely light pink colour with a blue side where the name is. I actually think the packaging is what has made this product so hyped as it just looks beautiful in flat lays (Instagram photos showing of products) and for me it definitely helped make the sale as I think it is very cute. I also think it has a little bit of a retro feel to it. Is that just me? Besides from colour the way the product work has been designed well too, the lip screws on and the final time it clicks into place making a bit of a tighter seal. It also means that the packaging can never be the wrong way round as the flay sides always line up. If that makes sense.
The wand is a tricky one to talk about. Honestly, I liked it but I couldn’t imagine it being any good for bottom lashes. The thing is HUGE! The wand is definitely where L’Oreal linked it to the name, as the applicator sort of looks like an old funfair helter skelter. I think the wand links quite well to the fun name of the product but as I say the thickness and length of it means it’s not going to be great on the bottom lashes.
Using the product:
The formula itself is amazing for appliction, it makes my lashes look full, darker and very voluminous. It’s not particularly wet but is a little wetter than the Benefit Roller Lash mascara so that could be a deal breaker but for me it’s not a problem. As I expected it really doesn’t work well on the bottom lashes the size and shape of the bristles make it pretty difficult to apply under there without getting smudges. If your looking for a product that you can build with layer upon layer of mascara I don’t think this is a good idea as it dries quickly making it look clumpy if you attempted more than one coat. Obviously this does depend on the type of look you are going for.
I didn’t get the water proof mascara but if I do repurchase this or you are going to buy this I would recommend trying that version instead as I have found this one to be very, very runny if it get wet. I found this out because I had a little melt down after my Alevel exam and my face with mascara… not a pretty look… Although I suppose this makes the product easy to remove at the end of the day.
I actually think this is a great drugstore mascara. The packaging is very aesthetic, the formula makes lashes look great and the wand works well on top lashes. The downsides are that it’s runny, not particularly buildable and doesn’t work for the bottom lashes. I rarely use drugstore mascara as I’m obsessed with my Benefit Roller Lash and They’re Real but if those two are out of your budget or you just prefer drugstore then this is a great mascara especially as it is only £7.99. I’d just recommend getting it in waterproof!
