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

    One of my favorites! I use a lengthening mascara first (Definicils) and then apply a couple coats of this one for volume and fullness. The color is very black and makes my lashes really stand out! It's not clumpy or drying. I've tried many expensive brands looking for a carbon black mascara but keep coming back to this one!

    I've used this specific mascara for years now. I've tried others, but always come back to this. It layers well, doesn't smudge and washes off easily with soap and water at the end of the day. Love it!!

    Works very well with the voluminous primer. And I love how black this mascara is. It's a little tough to get off but I prefer that over short wearing mascara.

      Formula is too wet & smudges really easily

      By sally

      from Sacramento, CA

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

      I bought this mascara because of all the good things I've heard about it from other users. However, upon the first application, I noticed that the formula is really wet so it doesn't keep your lashes curled upwards. After wearing it for a full day, the mascara had smudged everywhere on my eyes. Regardless, I gave this another try a few weeks later and had the same results. Although it does give some volume to your lashes, there are too many cons to this product and I would not recommend it to my friends.

        • I wear it all the time, looks great

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

        I had been trying out tons of different mascaras but I was getting nowhere. I finally tried this one and I'll never use anything else. It's super inexpensive and high quality, who could ask for more? It's super dark and my lashes look amazing! I've even had a few friends ask if they were real. The first bottle was great, but for some reason the second one I bought is hard to get off. It's all flakey when exposed to water, but my first purchase wasn't like that. And it's the exact same product..... Kinda odd. But I still use it with no problems, I'm just slightly confused with how they ended up reacting differently. But I still suggest buying, I have no regrets and neither will you! If you want "unreal" looking volume and color, go ahead and buy it. It's great.

          Does this mascara hold a curl (since it's not waterproof?)

            A:

            Hi there Tami! Thank you for reaching out to us. Our Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara helps to build volume while resisting flaking, clumping, and smudging. This formula will quickly thicken and build lashes in a single application for a more dramatic look! We believe that this mascara will perform optimally in all conditions. We hope this helps!

        • Q:

          Will this mascara give me racoon eyes?
          Asked on 5/25/2017 by TLC from AZ

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            Hi TLC. Our Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara should not give you raccoon eyes. This product is clump-resistance, fragrance-free, ophthalmologist-tested and suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. The volume maximizing brush thickens lashes evenly and smoothly, leaving them soft with virtually no flakes, smudges or clumps.

        • Q:

          Can you use just water to remove this or is it more difficult to remove?
          Asked on 3/14/2017 by Rachel from Los Angeles, CA

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            Hi Rachel! We recommend using a makeup remover like our Micellar Cleansing Water to remove this product. This product is powered by micelle molecules that cluster together to surround and lift away impurities and makeup with no rinsing or harsh rubbing. For eye makeup removal, saturate a cotton pad. Then hold the pad over closed eyes for a few seconds and gently wipe to remove.

            The Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara, like most of our mascaras, is available in both a water washable and waterproof formula. Look for the word WATERPROOF on the packaging and the mascara label.
