I love a great mascara and the L’Oreal Voluminous range is one of my absolute favorites. I’m all about the volumizing mascaras and I loved the Voluminous Butterfly so when I saw the Butterfly Intenza version, I snapped it up.
The deal with this brush is it has two wings, so you don’t need to flip the brush to do your other eye like with the original Butterfly mascara. The wand is wide and flat and the bristles are plastic and short. They are spaced close together so you don’t get clumps while the volumizing formula adds drama.
The volume with the separating bristles means mega fan lashes. The formula is good and black and I got no smudging or flaking. It did smudge a bit once but only due to a serious coughing fit which made my eyes water (struggles of testing products with a cold). So its not waterproof, but then again it doesn’t claim to be (but there is a waterproof version I’m just not a waterproof mascara girl).
I really love the effect of this mascara (just like I loved the original Butterfly). The double wing also make the brush easier to use.
You can get this beautifully volumizing mascara at Ulta, drugstores and Target for about $9 (prices will vary).
