Most Helpful Positive Review Woah!
This mascara is the bomb. I have extremely straight, long eyelashes and have a difficult time finding a mascara that keeps my eyelashes curled. This mascara does the trick! After curling, I apply two to three coats and my eyelashes look long and beautiful. The only down fall is that it does tend to leave a bit of a smudge on my eyelid throughout the day, but nothing I can't just simply wipe off. Totally worth it.
Most Helpful Critical Review What happened???
I purchased this particular mascara for years. I purchased my most recent one about 6 weeks ago and have used it 3 times with the same awful results...it is most certainly NOT waterproof. I ride motorcycle and when I stopped for the day, I had black lines running down my face (my eyes occasionally water from moving through the air). I thought it was a fluke. Now after wearing it two additional times, one riding motorcycle, and one just running errands, I had the same awful results...black circles under my eyes and flaky black material on the skin under my eyes as well. Obviously something has changed with the formula or a bad batch went out on the market this past year from other reviews that I have read with similar bad experiences. I will be throwing it away after only three uses due to the, not just poor, but awful quality of the product. I guess L'oreal has gone the way of "cheap" but continues to charge the same price for a once wonderful product.

This mascara works nicely on a day to day basis. Before Covid I sang in choir. I don't know how it will perform under the lights. In my regular day with glasses and sensitive eyes, it is wonderful! Removes easily. It is very ugly cry/grieving proof.
Jess from Los Angeles
I bought this product because of the price point and the reviews. I put it on and was immediately disappointed. It claimed to be water proof and that was a lie. It smudged horribly upon application and I did multiple coats to still not get the length and volume I needed. Please don't waste your money. I wouldn't even give this to my worst enemy.
literally the best

i've tried so many mascaras and this one is the best one ever. it's just perfect in every way and it's so cheap!!'
I will not purchase this again.
SlynnJo from Goshen, Indiana
It goes on smoothly without clumps and gives decent eyelash length but the 'waterproof' claim is questionable when the mascara ends up under my eyes in about 6 hours after application.
Best Mascara ever, hands down!
Mrs. Smith from NV
I have tried them all, and this one delivers well. Love the brush, gets every lash and defines them well.
Very natural looking, but smudges!
Buyer from America
I love the way it looks on me since I'm a natural blonde and a lot of mascaras look too bold/crazy for me, but this is so subtle and natural so that's great.
The only thing is that throughout the day you'll see it smudging under the eyes, so if that's something you can't be fixing constantly over the course of the day maybe this isn't for you.
Also it's not too water proof, so be careful regardless.
You get what you pay for
Bre from North Carolina, USA
This product gives you a great natural look, but I like my eyelashes to be enhanced by mascara and this just didn't do it. I bought it in store because the Lash Paradise was sold out and thought I'd give it a try. I'll use the mascara, but won't buy it again.
J from NY
I've been looking for a good waterproof mascara and settled on this one. Today I put it to the test with a full day out in the heat lugging around a wheelbarrow. Sweaty, but lashes fully intact! I'm a person whose mascara ends up all over my under eyes within a couple hours, so the fact that this lasted all day outside is enough to tell me I've found a keeper.
This is not waterproof
Chels from Mi
This mascara does nothing but smear. It adds no volume. If anything it added some length. It is NOT waterproof. It smudges on me just through the day. Horrible.
Great waterproof mascara
marie from Bluffton, SC
I like a brown-black mascara which is difficult to find. This waterproof formula works the best of any I found in that it stays on all day and doesn't make my under eyes look dark.
Not My Favorite
Dani from CO
I had bought this mascara because I knew a lot of celebrities loved it. But not me. I liked it at first because the thin formula is buildable and makes them look really pretty, but it smudges so much. I got home after an 8 hr shift and realized I had black smudges under my eyes. I'm a brown girl so it looked like I had the worse eye bags ever. I'm okay wearing it for short amount of times but not that long anymore. I think I'll try the lash paradise next time. So overall, good formula, bad wear for long periods of time, good wear for short periods of time, and wouldn't buy again!
don't waste your money
daisy from Texas
this product is clumpy, and smudges on the lower lash line almost immediately after application.
gardenjoy3 from FL
I'm always looking for great, lash building, smudgeproof, waterproof mascara. Well I still haven't found it yet. This goes on your lashes nicely, looks really good but did smudge after a few hours.
Do not buy
Linds from IN
Flakes like crazy throughout the day, but does not come off with any makeup remover whatsoever.
I don't like it
hi-ban from San Francisco, CA
I don't like this mascara. The product is very chunky and my lashes look like a mess, the brown is just black.
Give us a curved brush please
Taylor T. from Tennessee
I love this mascara but really prefer the curved brush. I have looked many places to try to find this color brown in a waterproof formula with a curved brush. I have only found the straight brush. Does it exist?

Great everyday mascara.
Great product at great price!

I've tried lots of mascara and have decided to purchase moderate priced so I can keep a fresh product at all times. Now I put dates on mascara. I like the East of application and great staying power. Works for me. I do not wear eye shadow.
Judykins from Bayonne,New Jersey
This is the best mascara you could buy. Is affordable & does what it is supposed to do, thicken & lengthen. Better than any mascara I bought from make up counters & spent a fortune. I like the waterproof because I have allergies so I tear up a lot.
Love this product!
Patricia from Tyler Texas
Very happy about the texture & the black black. Stays well does not flake
Forever My Favorite
Mlardin from Illinois
I've given other mascaras a try, even super expensive ones, and always come back around to Loreal Voluminous. The brown/black gives an amazing natural, not wearing makeup, look. The carbon black is awesome for nights out or when you want a more dramatic look. The waterproof is powerful, and if only applied in several layers while still wet, will not flake up. Just don't expect it be waterproof if you use a lash primer. I figured this out the hard way. I thought maybe the formula had changed because it would flake off or melt under my eyes. Then I stopped using the primer, and it never happened again. I think the primer prevents adhesion for the mascara to be long lasting. So if you can't live without lash primer don't expect it to behave like it should.
