Rated 4.11 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'm convinced the creators of this mascara didn't even bother to try it out before selling bc it leaves the absolute WORST under eye smudges/residue I've ever seen. If you want to look like you haven't slept in years then this is the mascara for you

I have used this mascara for probably 5+ years now & i have never changed. Yes, i have tried others but i always lean back to this. Its my all time favorite & i am always getting compliments on my lashes. I already have pretty decent lashes with no mascara on so that may help but i still think it builds a lot or volume. I will say i use a ton of layers but i do that with any mascara i use. I also use the primer beforehand which i think helps a lot too. 100/10 recommend!!

Looks pretty for about 15 minutes and then I look in the mirror and its everywhere. Smudges like crazy and extremely difficult to remove. I got a terrible rash around my eyes trying to get it off.

I love this mascara when I put it on. But it smudges so badly I just can't wear it anymore. It's embarrassing because halfway through the day, I go to the restroom and look in the mirror to see I look like a mess. I don't look professional by that point. And it continues until you take it off. Which is surprisingly difficult for something that cannot seem to stay in place.

This applies like a dream and looks great at first. It melted under my eyes Both times I tried it within an hour. I used primers and such the second time. 👎🏼 To each his own..

With all the hype about this mascara on YouTube I was expecting a bit more than what I got. Out of it. The brush is wonderful however the actual mascara is nothing special, not that impressive but it's ok for an every make up
Turquoise from Florida
It adds black and looks nice. However, after about 20 minutes it gives me raccoon eyes. Then even to wash off is extremely difficult and almost feels like it stains around my eyes.

This is the only mascara I've ever been able to find that gives me length and volume without any clumping. It's been my go to since Middle School (I'm now in my 30s)

Mascara on top and bottom lashes. Very deep black color. I love it!
Mp from Virginia
Voluminously mascara has been out for decades but still my tried and true. Nice stiff brush to apply so it's not flimsy or breaks easily. This carbon black is vey rich in color and intense… the best black mascara out there.
Marissa from Oklahoma
Have always used this mascara and it's just the best for its price range. Always go back.

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.
nicole from illinois
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.
ebbie from shirley ny
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.
Andi from Virginia
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.
Nani from Queens, NY
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!
Southernbell from Knoxville Tennessee
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....
Blondie from NC
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.
