Most Helpful Positive Review 10/10
I came across this mascara and was kind of hesitant, but I am SO glad I purchased. This mascara does flake off into my eyes or irritate them in anyway & the length and fullness is out of this world. I'm obsessed with this product and tell everyone they need this mascara!
Most Helpful Critical Review Amazing, but transfers like crazy!
I got this as a birthday gift from ulta.
I rarely get excited about mascara as I have such short stubby lashes that it's near impossible to see any effect.
When I applied this the first time I was blown away by how amazing my lashes looked. They were long and voluminous without clumping or being too stiff. I had such high hopes for this.
Sadly, this is not a good mascara for those of you who have hooded eyes and/or are prone to sweating along the browbone area like I am. After less than 4 hours I had major transferring along the upper lid/browbone area, to the extent that I actually looked like I had two sets of eyebrows!
I love this mascara for how it makes your lashes look but I hate it for how much it transfers. If this was available in waterproof then this would be a holy grail for me but alas, it's not in waterproof yet so my search for an amazing mascara continues.
If you don't have hooded eyes or issues with sweating along the brows then this is fantastic, so whilst it didn't work for me I would still definitely recommend it.

This mascara goes on beautifully. I love the lift and volume it gives, I like the wet formula, it applies like a dream...AND THEN FLAKES OFF EVERYWHERE ALL DAY LONG! Absolute fail.
New favorite mascara
JamieInJax from Jacksonville
I've noticed that my eyelashes seem less voluminous and I've been looking for a mascara that not only adds value, but doesn't smear and is easy to get off, and I've found it! I bought this on sale and will continue to purchase it. I even bought a tube for my mom!
Not for contact wearers
Meg from Atlanta
Unlike others, I loved the way this mascara looked. However, every single time I wear it, it immediately gets in my eyes and is a problem. Took me a few days to realize this was the issue with my contacts. Super disappointed because I really like it!
karen from Clarksville TN
does both lengthen and add volume. wears well, doesnt clump or bunch lashes. Used with Lancôme lash primer (white tube)
Clumpy & Raccoon Eyes
Christy from Virginia
I got the small tester of this product that came with a primer and another Lancôme mascara and have been trying it out but every time my lashes would clump together. It definitely transfers to your under eyes if it's hot or humid. Not fan of this product at all.
Not a fan
Lizz from DC
Im not really happy with this purchase, it makes my lashes look extra clumpy and reminds me of spider legs. I won't purchase this mascara again.
I want to love this so bad
nikky from united States
sadly this mascara always clumps up so bad on me. :(
A Quality Mascara!
Attila The Shopper from Erlanger, Kentucky
I like this mascara! It's long lasting, conditions lashes, last around 16 hours, and it has marvelous volume as well! So far, I've had no problems with it. I have long and thick lashes anyway, so I'm very blessed there. Just apply this like you would any mascara. My only recommendation would be is if you're on a budget, purchase this on sale, as I did, for it's a little bit pricey for a mascara. But it's a quality product.
Will never use another mascara!
Schmoopy says from Michigan
Love this stuff! It has a great consistency to really build long, thick lashes. The big brush also helps find every lash. I have purchased this over and over, and stopped searching for the perfect mascara. This is it!
Not a quality mascara

So far my Fav
Work from home Ma from CA
I try ALL kinds of mascara. Always looking for a good one. I try to snag up any that go on sale so I can see which one is the best. I really like this one. I appreciate that it didn't flake up or dry and turn crusty. Looks great on and really extends my lashes!
The best mascara!
Jenn from Pa
Long lasting and makes lashes so much longer
Goes on in clumps !!!! Very disappointed.

Amazing mascara!! It's light and gives my lashes the volume needed!
❤LOVE❤ this mascara!!
Lori from El Paso, Texas
This is my absolute favorite mascara. I wear it daily, and it gives me wonderful length AND volume. Simple application, primer is not necessary. The color is great, and it does not flake or clump. Lasts all day! It is a little hard to remove, but Derma E Universal Cleansing Balm works very well!
More lengthening than voluminous
KS from Las Vegas, NV
This adds a lot of volume and doesn't flake but it doesn't really make my lashes thicker. Still like it though!
Good Advice from Cleveland, OH
I have sparse eyelashes so I am always on the hunt for a mascara that adds length and volume. Not always easy to find. This mascara is quite impressive and makes my top lashes look amazing. Only giving 4 stars because I cannot wear on my bottom lashes as the formula transfers below.
MountainShopper from CO
I don't use mascara often, but when I do I want it to dramatically make my lashes stand out and this one does it with ease. Love the thick look I get with just 1 coat, can go even more dramatic with 2. It's the only mascara I buy anymore.
It's my holy grail, but dries quickly
Kelsey from Michigan
Honestly I think I'm on tube 5 of this mascara and I don't see myself switching anytime soon. One thing I have noticed is dries out/thickens up faster than my others have, but nothing too crazy fast. I make sure to not pump the mascara! You can fix it and thin it out with some contact solution but there comes a point where it becomes too far gone to save. But besides that I have no complaints, it does exactly what I want to my lashes and I love it.
Doodles from New Jersey
This mascara clumps up my lashes and I end up with blobs of thick mascara all over the place. Luckily I only paid half the price. If I had the packaging I would definitely return it.
Best mascara I've tried
kc from mem from Tennessee
I got this mascara as a birthday gift one year and I have continued to buy it again and again. This mascara adds so much volume without clumping and is easy to apply and remove (but not TOO easy to remove)
Repurchase over and over
Luvbug24 from Warren, MI
This is on my list of all-time favorite mascaras. This was a repurchase!
Nicole from DE
I'm glad I got this for half off during the 21 days sale. I've used L'Oreal Voluminous consistently for 5+ years now and will be going back to it as soon as this tube starts to dry out. This makes my lashes look very black but it doesn't give me even close to the same volume or length. And it dries so extremely quickly that trying to do a second coat turns my lashes into a clumpy nightmare. Also does that weird thing where it balls up on the very tips. An easy fix but not something I would pay full price for.
Better Than Expected
Texas teacher from Texas
The Big Monsieur Mascara was a big surprise. From the description, I was initially skeptical. I have tried mascaras that have fibers to lengthen your lashes before, and the fibers created a clump on my lashes. Yes, the lashes were longer, but it appeared that I only had 5 lashes—not good. So when I bought Big Monsieur, I thought it might be more of the same. It is not! The mascara does not clump, and my lashes are curled and separated. It wears all day without flaking. I recommend this product.
