Loreal Voluminous : False Lashes VS. Million Lashes

Left: Million Lashes
Right- False Lashes
Today I'm having my Loreal Mascara showdown. Which is the best mascara? I've been pulling both of these out of my makeup drawer all week, but which do I favor? Which would I rather repurchase? Let's find out..

Loreal Voluminous False Lashes Mascara

Lengthening:  Super lengthening! This mascara has fibers in the formula that give it's "False Lash" effect.
Holding A Curl:  Decent. Falls a bit flat after a minute (as you can see in the bottom picture) But I have lashes that stick straight out, and I've tried much worse. So not terrible. Not amazing either.
Volumizing: Again decent. It feels like there are more lashes than I had before which looks great, but the mascara formula can clump so easily and look "spidery" rather than full.
Packaging:  Gold with Sharpe edges that twist. Think twislers. More odd than cute.
Applicator :  long skinny brush with short bristles that taper in close to the tip a bit.  Hate it. Fibers get clumped into the brush so easily. Looks awful. Probably the reason for clumpy lashes.
Price:  Got for less than $10 CDN. really affordable.

Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes

Lengthening:  Not incredible, but still really great. There are no fibers but my lashes appear longer than what they do naked.
Holding A Curl: They stay put. Once curled they stay curled all day. I haven't had any falling whatsoever.
Volumizing:  Lot's of lashes that I didn't know I had. Well defined and feathery. LOVELOVELOVE
Packaging:  Rounded gold packaging with a flat line where the name reads. Nothing spectacular. Nice and simple.
Applicator :  Large and round with short plastic bristles. Reminds me of the cover girl fusion mascara wand. 
Price:  Again less than $10 CDN. Really affordable.

So who wins?


False lashes I can use with a dark dramatic eye, but millions is perfect for that and everyday as well. I hate clumpy mascara and Millions defined lashes are much prettier.
Don't even get me started on the wands. False Lashes is shit. Millions is heaven.

Have you tried either of these mascaras?
