Spotted: NEW L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Intenza

Attention L'Oreal Butterfly fans! Did you know that there's a new addition to the Butterfly family? I sure didn't!

Many thanks to reader Courtney (@cmoorebeauty on Instagram) for this one. Courtney spotted the new Butterfly Intenza Mascara at Meijer this week and was nice enough to share lots of pics. Take a look!

So  what makes Intenza different than the original Butterfly?

The double wing brush! 

If you've used the original Butterfly, then you know that the wing is only on one side of the brush. With this new version, the brush is now symmetrical. Interesting, right?

Have you spotted the new Butterfly Intenza in your area yet? Are you a fan of the original Butterfly Mascara? Think you'll give this new version a shot? I really like the original, but I find that it doesn't quite give my sad, thin lashes the amount volume they so desperately need. I've been using it underneath my Miss Manga though, and that's a fantastic combo for me personally (thanks to those of you who suggested trying that!). So I'll definitely have to give this new version a whirl when I find it. 

Thanks so much, Courtney, for the great sighting and pics. I really appreciate it!


  1. I want to try this mascara. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I haven't seen this mascara yet in stores, but I most definitely want to try it. I loved the original L'OREAL Butterfly mascara so I have high hopes for this new one.

  3. I've been meaning to ask you but have you ever considered using Latisse for your lashes? Its a little expensive but really really works!! It's FDA approved and you have to buy it through a med spa or MD office but sometimes you can get a good deal!! I've been using it for 3 years now and my lashes are so much longer (and a little thicker)... I used to have short straight lashes that pointed straight down and after about six weeks of using it my lashes got long enough that they actually curled up!! If you do buy it don't use the sucky brushes that comes with it, they'll waste your expensive product!!! I just use an old eyeliner brush (one of the free ones that came with a pot of gel eyeliner)

  4. Did anyone else read that really fast as "influenza"?

  5. I loved the original but all L'oreal mascaras irritate my eyes to the point where I can't even wear them. My eyes will tear up, get red and super itchy. Not really sure what causes it but iffy sucks :(.

  6. I need to hunt this one down I love loreal mascara especially miss Manga and Telescopic, just might be one of my new faves

  7. I really like the butterfly mascara. I will def be trying this new version! I almost like non water proof version better. Miss manga kind of gets cloy on me.

  8. I love that new wand, because I have difficulty applying mascara with my left hand, so my left eye doesn't get that lovely sort of lifted out shape from the original wand. It's hard to describe. You know the raised wing on the original wand? That's the part I mean.
