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

      I've been on the hunt for a less expensive mascara to replace my usual prestige brand. I'm a mom with three kids ages 7 and under and quite honestly, makeup is a luxury that I just don't have time for most days. That being said, it is difficult for me to toss my more expensive tube when I should and it starts drying out before I use it up anyway. This product is a nice compromise so far. The applicator is decent and the formula doesn't seem to irritate my eyes which has been a common issue for me with budget brand mascara that I've tried in the past. I've only used it a few times so I can't attest to how quickly it will start to clump/dry out. It also comes off quite easily with some Micellar water which I really appreciate. I don't prefer it over my usual product but it is comparable to some other prestige brands that I've tried. So, all in all, it's not perfect but not bad either, especially for the price.

      Smudges. A Lot.

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

      I bought this after reading all the praise but this stuff smudges every time. Whenever I put it on there would be dark marks under my eyes by the afternoon without fail (despite not rubbing my eyes and not having this issue with other mascaras). Glad it's worked for other people, but it's not my jam.

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

      I lalalalove this mascara! It can be worn alone but I tend to wear it with a base...preferably another mascara (e.g. the L'Oreal Voluminous mascara primer or Maybelline Collosal or Great Lash); it isn't because this mascara doesn't hold up on its own but their could be different brush options. Plus, because this is basically waterproof & dries fast, you want something to brush out your lashes first

      I have been using this "cheap" mascara for a while now, I have tried so many other more expensive ones and always come back to this classic. Goes on great and makes my lashes pop

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

        I am very particular about my mascara. I have used Clinique, Younique, MAC, & other high end mascara brands. However, until I started using L'Oreal Volumious Mascara have I begun having a plethora of compliments! My lashes are not clumpy and look fuller, longer, & darker! I would 10/10 recommend this mascara! The price point AND quality is fabulous, don't count it out because of brand name and price point, it is NOT a compromise.

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

            I was looking for the Paradise Lashes mascara, but my local Ulta did not carry it yet. I bought this on a whim, and I'm not mad at it. It's not as great as higher-end mascaras, but this will do the trick for every day. It takes a few coats to get the volume I want, but that's expected for the drug store price.

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

            The brush is great, it applies the mascara evenly through my lashes. The color of this product is a deep, bold black. Although this mascara has been around for many years, it is still my favorite.

            I've used this for YEARS. I have very oily lids and wear my makeup for 12+ hours a day. By the end of the day, I look like a raccoon.

                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!

                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.

              Can you use just water to remove this or is it more difficult to remove?

                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.
