    Comments about L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara:

    Horrible mascara! I was very surprised to find the mascara smudged under my eyes after just a few hours, I even bought the waterproof version. The L'Oreal Butterfly mascara is much better.

    Comments about L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara:

    I've been using this mascara since I first discovered it in High school, about 15 years ago and it is by far the best! I've tried other brands just to keep my options open, but I always come back to this one. It's got rich pigmentation and the formula does come out super thick which can sometimes cause a problem for the inexperienced mascara user. (I had a cousin that claimed it was to clumpy for her.) I personally don't have any problems with it, I like that it comes out super thick because after a few strokes it smoothes out to a beautiful velvet finish. Pair it with black liquid eyeliner and you're good to go! I defenitely recommend it anyone who wants that french vixen look, and at the price, it just can't get any better. Try it, you will love it!

      Comments about L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara:

      I bought this because of a review I saw on makeup geek. I was looking for an inexpensive mascara that would build volume, and this was recommended as an affordable drugstore brand. When I applied it, I was very pleased with the results. However, at the end of my day the mascara had flaked so much that I looked like a raccoon. Plus, I really had to scrub with the makeup remover to take it off, which was surprising since so much of it flaked off. I wear contact lenses, and now that I switched mascaras, I notice my eyes don't itch like they used to, so this mascara was also getting into and underneath my contacts causing discomfort. I won't be buying it again.

          Comments about L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara:

          I have been searching for that "Perfect for me" mascara for too long now. I have what I consider fairly normal eyelashes and I was just looking for something to give them a little something extra. I thought I would give this a try because it had great reviews but it just wasnt that good for me. It clumped, smudged, got all over my lid as I was applying and the brush is not a style that I like. Guess its on to try another brand...

              Comments about L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara:

              I've been using this mascara since middle school. Before the "carbon black" version came out, I used the original. It was the first one I ever used, and I've probably bought hundreds of tubes since.

              I've strayed, don't get me wrong. I tried dozens of others, including variations on the original (like the new Butterfly one) and expensive, high-end brands, but NONE measured up, and I always came back.

              I had a best friend in high school who had VERY sparse, blonde lashes and never wore mascara. I let her try this one, and her exact words were "Oh my God, it put lashes on my face". Not only is this mascara SUPER volumizing, but it lengthens and almost makes a lash curler pointless. It barely flakes all day long, and hardly smudges, either. The best part? You can add layer after layer without flakiness, and clumps are easily brushed out. You can even let it dry before adding a layer for a more dramatic look, which is what I do. With other mascaras, you'd be a black-flecked mess if you did that.

              The texture is creamy and the formula doesn't dry too quickly, but quick enough. And the color on this is so, so black. It's very buildable, so you can decide how dramatic you want to go. One layer will darken and volumize and still look pretty natural. Two will add curl and even more length and volume. Three will be more so, and you're starting to get a little spidery (in a cool way). And on and on.

              Can't rave enough. This is the perfect mascara. Don't waste your money. Just go to the drugstore.

                Comments about L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara:

                I generally use Benefit BadGal as well as Too Faced Better Than Sex - and for the price, this is a great mascara. It gives really "long" lashes, but I wouldn't say so much that they're the "fullest" lashes. This does NOT clump whatsoever, and removes without effort. I didn't give it a full five stars, just because it doesn't make my lashes very full.

                  This is the best mascara I've ever tried and it is so affordable! I do 2 coats and it makes my lashes appear longer and fuller. My eyes really do pop with this mascara! It's never clumpy and I love that inky black color.
