    Smudge SO MUCH

    By RZ

    from Los Angelos

    Comments about L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara:

    Overall this is just bad. I have mono lid(Asian eyes) and short lashes. So whenever I apply it, ur always gets on my eyelids. And after like 2 hours or so it starts smudging on my lower eye. By the end of the day I'll have this black area all over my lower eye. DONT BUY!!!

    Comments about L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara:

    When first applied it looks great, but after a while it flakes. And with any movement it smudges so easily. It is so hard to get off. Although it works, there are so many other mascaras that don't have these cons for the same price

    it's alright

    By buyer

    Comments about L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara:

    It takes a couple coats to start seeing volume, and length. I usually touch up with a eye lash curler after to get curl and length.

      Love this mascara so much. It's truly so dramatic and if you apply correctly, and wipe off excess product before using, it gives you the most voluminous, and thick dark lashes. Great with falses too!

        Comments about L'Oréal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara:

        I compare this to Marc Jacobs Velvet noir mascara, I'm not saying there's not a difference between the two, however I still love this mascara! You can get thick long lashes with some building or some thick lashes with a couple swipes. I definitely recommend!

        I really love how the brush makes my lashes nice and thick at the base. I almost don't need liner! My lashes look lengthy as well. It is better to start with fresh clean lashes. If I reapplied at all then the lashes would clump alittle. Overall I would use this again. Thanks!

          Hello! Does the L'Oréal voluminous carbon black mascara have the exact formula as the L'Oreal voluminous mascara with the curved brush?? I know the carbon black one has a much darker color but for the formula, is it the exact same?

          How does this differ from the L'Oréal voluminous original? Is it just blacker?

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            Great question! Both mascaras are very similar. However, the Carbon Black is 2X the intensity of the regular black and blackest shades.

            A:

            Hi there Tami! Thank you for reaching out to us. Our Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara helps to build volume while resisting flaking, clumping, and smudging. This formula will quickly thicken and build lashes in a single application for a more dramatic look! We believe that this mascara will perform optimally in all conditions. We hope this helps!

        • Q:

          Will this mascara give me racoon eyes?
          Asked on 5/25/2017 by TLC from AZ

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            Hi TLC. Our Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara should not give you raccoon eyes. This product is clump-resistance, fragrance-free, ophthalmologist-tested and suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. The volume maximizing brush thickens lashes evenly and smoothly, leaving them soft with virtually no flakes, smudges or clumps.

        • Q:

          Can you use just water to remove this or is it more difficult to remove?
          Asked on 3/14/2017 by Rachel from Los Angeles, CA

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            Hi Rachel! We recommend using a makeup remover like our Micellar Cleansing Water to remove this product. This product is powered by micelle molecules that cluster together to surround and lift away impurities and makeup with no rinsing or harsh rubbing. For eye makeup removal, saturate a cotton pad. Then hold the pad over closed eyes for a few seconds and gently wipe to remove.
