L’Oreal False Lash Wings Sculpt Mascara Review {Mascara of the Month}

I always find it difficult to write an entire blog post on a mascara. I basically just want to show you a picture of the stuff on my lashes, tell you whether it clumps or crumbles or not and say good bye again.

But L’Oreal False Lash Wings Sculpt mascara deserves a little more than that. For starters, there’s the very weird and wonderful wand. I’ve seen many a mascara wand in my days, but this one takes the cake – it’s equal parts bizarre and brilliant.

The bristles you see above are the only bristles on the entire wand, which means only a quarter of the circumference of the wand is functional. I initially assumed this would be a pain, but it’s satisfyingly precise to work with once you get the hang of it. The actual product feels very smooth and creamy (as opposed to dry/prone to flaking), and it’s perfectly pitch black.

On my already-long lashes this guy seriously boosted length, definition and intensity, and if I had any complaints it would be that I would have enjoyed a little more volume.

L’Oreal False Lash Wings Sculpt mascara on your left, nothing on the right.

The mascara lasts well with no flaking and minimal smudging, and it removes easily enough with my regular face cleansers. I can highly recommend this one if you’re looking for a new mascara to try.

Get L’Oreal False Lash Wings Sculpt mascara for around R175 at pharmacies and department stores.

PS – It’s moving week for me so I’m not too sure if I’ll get another post up. I’m definitely getting my blogging groove back so I’ll be back in full swing soon.

    I’m very excited for this mascara, L’Oréal is yet to disappoint me in this department, they always have lovely mascaras. Do you perhaps know if their Telescopic has been taken off the market? I can’t find it anywhere 🙁
    Good luck with the move Chantal!! xx

        Haha no worries and thank you! Not sure about Telescopic right now but I almost think it has been replaced with something else.

    I’m the WORST when it comes to makeup and skincare. I rarely buy any (which, at my age, isn’t doing me any favours!)… Thanks for this – I’m keen to try it out.

    What mascara would you recommend for someone who has almost no eyelashes 🙁
    Or as I’ve once been told “doe-eyelashes”.

      Something like this might work because you have so much control – it’s almost like painting on lashes. Otherwise maybe Maybelline Colossal Volume – completely the opposite with a huge brush, but I get very good results with it.

    I cannot believe you get that lenght with such a weird wand. ☺

    Strongs with the unpacking :- )

      It’s such a weird little thing. And thank you, but I’m not even done packing things IN, never mind unpacking 😛

    I’ve seen this around and on YouTube but wasn’t sure whether it is worth it. Thanks for the post – it has made me realise I need it in my life.

      Only a pleasure. Even though I saw it being used in a demo I also wasn’t sure until I tried it myself.

    Hi. How many coats did you give and did you use a lash curler, to get the finished effect?

    • Chantelle Bester
      August 26, 2016 / 3:13 pm

      Just a few swipes, and no lash curler 🙂
