L’Oreal Bare Naturale mascara

June 18, 2022

You understand a mascara is great when your coworker exclaims in a meeting, “Your EYELASHES! What mascara are you wearing?”  Or, when you are at Sephora, as well as the makeup artist compliments you on your eyelashes – not your eye makeup – she particularly states “I like your lashes!”  (I believe she believed they were falsies?)  And by all accounts, I have dinky wimpy sparse eyelashes.  This is the magic that is L’Oreal Bare Naturale Mascara:

But, before you proceed any further into this entry, I warn you: this wondrous miracle product is discontinued.  I’m sorry, so extremely sorry to do this to you. If you don’t want to experience heartache as well as mental anguish, please turn back now…

I bought this mascara on a whim since it was on clearance sale.  I should have understood much better than to try something new when it was remove that it was being discontinued, however I didn’t heed my internal alarm bells.  The official name of this product is Bare Naturale luminous Lengthening Mascara.  Its declares are:

Not sure about having luminous lashes (whaaat? It’s so odd to keep calling out “luminous” as a mascara insurance claim – it’s even part of the mascara’s name – as well as the words “luminous”, “luminously”, as well as “luminosity” all appear on the packaging*) however it does provide on amazing length, and surprisingly, it likewise packs a punch in volume even though it’s not listed as a claim.  The wand features a routine clean bristle:

Another weird thing to claim, however the bristles are indeed rather soft.
It doesn’t clump, flake or smudge, but removes quickly with eye makeup remover.  The results garnered the previously mentioned lash praise by coworker as well as Sephora partner alike.  It’s near perfection in a tube!

Stash waardigheid: 10/10

As soon I realized exactly how much I like this, I went searching for back-ups. I discovered on the internet sellers with unopened bundles for inexpensive (less than half the original retail cost of $11.50 each):

My depleted stash. I had a lots unopened bundles at one point.
The loss of this mascara is up there for me as when Max factor 2000 Calorie got pulled from north america (yes, I understand I can order on the internet from European sources  – in fact, when I was in St. Petersburg, Russia, I bought a couple of tubes of MF 2000 Calorie mascaras [oh the lengths we beauty junkies go to for our fix!] – however it’s costly with the currency conversion.) However, I’m going to stop buying more back-ups of the L’Oreal – since this was discontinued in 2012, the stock is just getting as well old.  Once I utilize up the last of my back-up stash, that’ll be it.

In terms of discovering a replacement, the closest mascara to accomplish similar results is CoverGirl LashBlast volume (orange tube) however where it’s more volumizing, it’s less lengthening compared to the L’Oreal.  Within L’Oreal’s own lineup, I’ve tried a few however discovered no successor; I’ve tried: Telescopic (no volume), Voluminous (smudges), as well as miss Manga (clumpy).  Now the million dollar question: have you tried the L’Oreal Bare Naturale mascara, and if so, do you have any type of suggestions for a replacement?

* Side note: I do question if this mascara was marketed poorly as well as misnamed.  When I very first saw the name “Bare Naturale” I expected a mascara that would provide me some definition, perhaps a bit of length, not this KAPOW! lash effect.  If they had called it Magical Maximum miracle Mascara™, perhaps it wouldn’t have been discontinued?
