Rated 4.13 out of 5 stars
I love this mascara! It is so soft and black. I am a mascara junkie and I always have at least one tube of this. I may use other mascaras on top of this one just for a more dramatic look sometimes but this is my everyday mascara. Natural look, glam look, evening look, any look! I wore this on my wedding day under my falsies. I seriously just love this!
I bought this mascara about 6 weeks ago and liked it at first, but it often leaves dark circles under my eyes. A few days ago, when I pulled the applicator brush out of the tube, all of the product came out in a huge glob. I was able to cram most of it back down into the tube, but the brush is still over-clogged with all the gloppy black mascara rather than being evenly distributed among the bristles. Even after scraping most of the product off the tip, it still leaves large blobs on my lashes.

i read the reviews and was surprised people experienced smudging. in all my years of wearing mascara, i have NEVER smudged. maybe because i don't apply it to my bottom lashes?
one swipe and you are done. it is a bit goopy (and that's exactly why i love it) so apply it slowly. start at the rim and wiggle the brush as you swipe up. that probably wasn't necessary to state lol.
i love that it's goopy because it coats my lashes and really creates a voluminous look. because i have used mascara for years, i can use it and not have my lashes appear clumped or spidery looking. i always use two mascaras. a volume one and a lengthening one so my lashes appear fanned out. i make sure to use a brush that gets in between the lashes to separate them.
"are you wearing fake eyelashes"…that's the effect it creates. i have been asked what mascara i use and i say i use two, with this being one of them.
primer…this…lengthening one. a 3-step process to apply a simple thing.
i will state that i had a friend use this and tell me that she didn't get the same effect as i had, and if i was honest in what i actually use LOL. i don't know why but i equate it to skin care products: what works for me might not work for you and vice versa. my absolute favorite and i always pray it never gets discontinued.

worst smudging i've ever had. i've used a lot of different mascaras, but i've never dealt with smudging like this. on top of the the mascara seems to really weigh my lashes down. really disappointed since i read that this mascara was top rated.

this mascara is very wet and never drys down. All day it smudges and wont stay I'm place. It's a shame beacuse it gives me a cute natural look, but natural lashes with raccoon eyes are not a look I'm going for.

One coat is great two coats rocks.

I have been using this mascara for about 12 years! The thing with this mascara is that you can't layer too much it can get clumpy quick and make sure you don't apply it in a rush..especially people that aren't familiar with this mascara or mascaras in general it can be aggressive at first..I have tried many mascaras from high end to drugstore level and let me tell you I keep coming back to this bad boy! I know what look I'm going to get every time with this one..it's consistent in the 12 years that I've used it the formula has never changed and I haven't even said the best part! You get dramatically long thick lashes that don't flake!! It doesn't flake or smudge! You won't look like a raccoon at the end of the day it's truly amazing!

Tried a few times thinking and hoping the reaction around my eyes was from something else. This stuff gave me a terrible rash around my eyes.

This is the best mascara I have used! My favorite was always Tarte Maneater but it lacked a little bit on the length side for me and I found it to dry up kind of quick. This Loreal Mascara delivers on volume, holding curl, length and is also a very black mascara. I did not have much flaking (nothing out of ordinary for the end of the day) and haven't experienced any smudging. I don't have anything negative to say about this mascara....however I have not had it long enough to know how long the bottle will last though.

Have been using this for years. Its my Go To mascara. I typically feel most mascaras are all the same and the biggest difference is the brush. I like this spoolie brush and it doesn't flake.
Grant from USA
I love this mascara because it is excellent for both volume and length. Also, the carbon black is SO black that it almost looks like I'm wearing liner. Might be my new go to!

This was the hardest mascara I've encountered to remove...I tried makeup remover, eye remover pads and soap and water. I finally gave up. As I've used L'oreal mascaras in the past, I purchased 2 tubes and they're going to be returned....

My eyes look better with this mascara, it gives me thick lashes!
MW from NY
The worst mascara I ever have. After few hours it's smudged all over my bottom eyelid, it looks ridiculous. I would recommend to get something different.
Vic from MISSOURI
This mascara helps show my long eyelashes.
Ash from Wisconsin
Works just as well as the $20 mascara brands. Makes my lashes bold/long. Doesn't flake like some expensive brands.
Jackie from New York
This is my go to mascara. It doesn't flake or clump your lashes.
danielle from california
i really love this mascara. it is my go to mascara. i've tried different mascaras but this one has never let me down.

I usually go with Covergirl LashBlast but wanted to find a backup and one that gave a little more volume! I read tons of great reviews on the Maybelline Lash Sensational so I tried it and hated it. I have plenty of lashes but they're fine so I needed something that wasn't going to clump which the maybelline LS did really bad! This one is very light but also gives you great length with volume with no clumping!! Love the pigment! I also really love the brush - very easy to apply and doesn't pull out too much product! This one and the Original are 2 of my new favorites! They are so underrated!! I didn't notice flaking like a few others did but I also don't use Waterproof mascara because it dries my lashes out too much and causes them to fall out faster

It gives a very natural look and does not clump at all, it does lengthen them nicely. But it doesn't maintain the curl and hardly gives any volume to the lashes.
jenna from mi

One of my favorite mascaras!
c.s. from Walker, Mi
Very pigmented and lengthens your lashes, but can't hold a curl. I have extremely long and straight lashes, curled or not curled my lashes eventually went back to straight.
Luz Reyes from stamford
it makes your lashes look long and it doesn't clump them at all

Voluminous Lash Paradise was out of stock so I went to my back-up. Have tried them all. L'oreal Is the only brand that doesn't flake and lasts all day. Lash Paradise is my Fav.
Wendy from Ohio
Worst mascara I've ever purchased. Doesn't lengthen or thicken lashes at all. Not waterproof and comes off very easily. Waste of money.
