Review L’Oreal Lash Architect 4D

You ever have a shopping trip where you don’t really need something and buy it because you just feel like it ? Well L’Oreal Lash Architect 4D was that kind of a purchase for me. I didn’t go into Boots for a mascara, in fact I went in for my Allergy eye drops but decided while I was in there I’d buy a little something extra and they were doing a promotion! If you bought a L’Oreal mascara you also got a free L’Oreal  Paris Colour Appeal Eyeshadow, so I grabbed one of those too. It cost £10.99 at Boots and I hadn’t read much about it to be fair so bought the mascara on a total whim.

L’Oreal Lash Architect 4D is a mascara which has lash fibres already in it. They are small micro 4mm fibres which combined with the mascara formula and the Architect brush are able too coat all your lashes giving you more volume, length and curl. This mascara also boasts it will give you no clumping and an even application because of the brush.

The packaging is attractive, gorgeous gold and shiny. I love the simplicity of the writing on the tube it makes it that much more sophisticated and scream high end when in price it isn’t. It’s also an unusual shape, not your basic mascara round cylinder, this one is more triangular with slightly rounder angles.

The brush is pretty basic, I bought Lash Architect in Black so inside is black too. The brush is fairly slim line and mine was slightly angled. Having smaller lashes I felt this would make it much easier to apply the mascara too all my lashes and would be easier for people with hard to reach short stubby lashes too.

I did notice it has a fairly strong odour compared to some mascaras but not in an offensive way. I also didn’t notice this on application just when I smelt the tube which is something I almost always do.

The mascara isn’t too wet which is something I hate in some mascaras. I usually find with wet ones it takes a good 4 applications before I find it truly useable but Lash Architect 4D was just right. So far the mascara has a few plus points for me so I was looking forward too trying it!


You can clearly see which eye is wearing the mascara. My LAshes look fuller and longer. Left eye has L’Oreal Lash Architect 4D False Lash Effect Mascara on and my Right eye does not.

On application as you can see I have just applied it to 1 eye as I wanted you to be able too see clearly how the mascara worked for me. This is just 1 application of the product too.

Here you can’t really see much difference, my eyes are closed to show more the fullness of the lashes. As you can see my Left eye has L’Oreal Lash Architect 4D False Lash Effect Mascara on and my Right eye does not.

I truly love this mascara. I loved the results and found it didn’t irritate my sometimes sensitive eyes. It went on easily and not messily at all, which can happen with larger brushes mascaras. There was no smudging or fall out throughout the day which considering I didn’t put on any foundation today I was really impressed with. It looks great and although its labelled as a ‘False Lash Effect’ mascara I didn’t feel it made me look like I’m wearing false lashes – however it did give me volume and ‘believable’ length without being clumpy or looking like spider legs. I think this could be replacing my current favourite mascara – Bourjois Volume Fast & Perfect Rotating Mascara! I recommend this mascara for those who do have short stubbly lashes, it worked for me and mine aren’t the best lashes in the world. If you have normal or long lashes I feel you probably could achieve the true ‘False Lash Effect’ with it, or maybe with 2 coats. For £10.99 its a good price and worth its weight in gold!

Lots of Love,
