Most Helpful Positive Review Happy Find
I'm so happy I found this. I used to use Channel mascara and honestly this is just as good if not better. I couldn't believe the definition- thinking and lengthing it gave. Sometimes I even prefer over fake lashes!!! The only con is you have to have a skill at applying mascara I couldn't see a novice makeup wearing having it applied evenly. The brush helps tho. I also notice after a week of using it the product gets easier to work with- maybe bc it's dried out a little. Not sure..... but I love this. Everyone I've recommended is also now addicted. This is a staple in my makeup routine.
Most Helpful Critical Review What happened?
I've been using the original Voluminous mascara for many years, and I've always loved it. However, it can be a little clumpy, and I wanted to shake things up. I figured this take on the original was a safe bet- A good way to try something new without wasting money. I figured I couldn't go wrong with a variation on a product I've adored since middle school. Boy was I wrong.
First, the pros: This stuff looks amazing on lashes. The brush takes a little getting used to, but it does a wonderful job of separating and defining, coating even the littlest lashes in the corners of eyes. This mascara adds volume and plenty of length without getting too clumpy. The best comparison I can make is doll eyelashes. Really dramatic and beautiful.
Now, the cons: This stuff looks amazing and stays put for about five minutes before it gets dry and starts to flake. Tiny black specs at first, only noticeable to the wearer. However, by four or five o'clock, the stuff has flaked all over my face and my under eyes are a black-flecked mess. I've had this problem every single day. But this isn't even the most disturbing part. The formula isn't the same as the original, and it BURNS my eyes. Not in an overly painful way, but still uncomfortable. My eyes are watering up and burning mildly by mid-afternoon, and they don't quit until I remove it. This doesn't help with my under eye situation, either- Now I've got dry flecks mixing with wet tears and... Well, you can imagine.
Maybe I got a bad tube, but I'm very disappointed. Can't wait to get back to the tried and true original.

I've used this mascara on and off for a few years now and always loved it, until now. I just bought another one about a week ago and I've never had a mascara flake this bad before. It's so disappointing because it makes my lashes look great but a couple hours after I apply it, I've got a ton of flakes under my eyes.
Ride or die

I have been purchasing this item for years! Every now and then I try a new mascara that people rave about, but nothing compared to this mascara!!
Love the wand
MNraxie from Minnesota
I bought this wanting to try the unique brush style and I really like it. There was a learning curve for me in getting used to it - it has dual areas for the upper and lower lashes. I have not had problems with clumping or flaking, I will definitely buy it again.
Love the comb applicator
TLC from Wichita, KS
Love how the comb type applicator separates my lashes & lengthens them. However, it really doesn't volumize as advertised.
I love it!!
Rae from Dallas, Tx
I really enjoyed this mascara so much!!
Holy Grail of mascara
Josi from Flint, MI
This mascara is amazing! Every time I try a new mascara, I ALWAYS go back to this one. For someone who's lashes are non existent, it makes my lashes look long and full.
I apply many coats as well and it does not clump!
Love the Formula

I love the formula, but hate the wand.
Love how it seperates

No no no no don't get this

Makes your lashes the shortest, tiniest, little stubs. It's also hard to take off, worst mascara ever.
Ozzie from New York
I love this mascara. I've tried out many mascaras such as the too faced better than sex mascara and the Maybelline great lash mascara but none of them compare to this one. It has a great texture and it applys so nicely. It last all day, and the only downside is that it's super difficult to remove, but only because it's waterproof.
Rae from Yucaipa
the applicator is wonky and the formula is to thin
Great product I would buy again
TheNan from Pooler GA
Not a big mascara user because of bad experiences in the past but this product is great and has changed my mind. I plan to wear this mascara often!

I like it

I realy like it! 🙂
Rose from California
This mascara is nice, not voluminous but does define and adds some length. I actually really like it on my bottom lashes. The wand is really nice! It is like a comb and combs through every lash. Not a bad product but I am still on the hunt for the perfect mascara. This one I would buy again just for my lower lashes.
Ig from Goodyear AZ
Does dry in the container very quickly. Otherwise I love it
Doesn't flake or rub off on my eyelids.
Stacy from Tampa Bay FL
Doesn't clump, goes on smooth. The brush is genius. I especially like that it doesn't flake or rub off onto my eyelids/
Amy from Lincoln ne
My lashes are short and this really lengthens them.
Always come back to this 1
Linda from Chicago
Big fan of this product, goes on clean, no clumps & is buildable. Especially like that does not flake & easy to remove with soap & water. I'll occasionally try new products, but always come back to this. Applicator gives you both brush & comb, really versatile
Dry and flakey.
AC from California
This mascara flakes into my eyes all through the day. I can't stand wearing it. It also goes on clumpy and dry. I would not re purchase.
I buy this product all the time
