Product Review: L'Oreal Curl Impact Collagene



When L'oreal sent the Curl Impact Collagene mascara, I really just thought that it's another mascara. But guess what? It isn't.



By the wand alone I notice how different it was from all my other mascara. It's a unique spiral wand brush that claim to give that perfect balance between curl and volume. Some testimonials even gave that you don't need to curl your lashes with a lash curler when using this mascara.


What L'oreal says about this mascara...
L’Oreal Paris introduces its new curl-fixing volumizing mascara. You get two amazing results in one easy step—jet set plumpy volume and all day lasting curl hold. Curl Impact Collagene mascara comes with a unique spiral curler brush with two sides to reach the perfect balance between volume & curl. This classic black mascara also comes with L’Oreal Paris special formulation that allows for easy warm water removal for effortless cleansing at the end of the day. So bold to wear, and effortless to remove.



What I love...
It does what it promise..
  • It gives enough volume with 2 to 3 coats. or natural looking lashes, I settle for one coat.
  • Lengthens my lashes
  • Easy to remove with warm water alone (no need for eye makeup remover)
  • Smudge-proof
  • Tear-proof
  • Sweat-proof
  • Lightweight
  • Doesn't weigh down my lashes
  • Packaging is so pretty (you know how much I love gold stuff)
  • Help maintain curl throughout the day
  • Easy to use 


What I don't...
  • Can get clumpy on second on third if you let the first settle and dry.
  • Lashes can get that spidery effect if not careful with application






I'm never one to leave without mascara on and I find that will all the different mascaras out I've tried, this one provides a smoother swipe. The wand brush is separated enough that applying the formula was quite easy. Doing the zigzag motion isn't too tedious as the consistency is easy to work with, emollient enough, i think.

I like that with one or two swipe, I get the curl and volume. Compared to the former collagene mascara, I like this one a lot better. Effects are achievable and I think even with those shorter lashes, they won't have a hard time playing around with this mascara.

Overall, I give this mascara 4.5 out 5 stars.

L'oreal Curl Impact Collagene Mascara is available at L'oreal Counters in Watson's, SM departments Store and other malls nationwide.
