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

    I have tried several mascaras from department and retail stores. I ALWAYS come back to my L'Oréal Voluminous in Carbon Black! It's the darkest black and I just love how it applies and makes my natural lashes look. I have short natural lashes and with this baby, my lashes always look great! It's a MUST HAVE!

    This mascara gives your lashes so much volume. The only problem with it is that the tube doesn't last long since it dries out easily.

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

      This is the best mascara. The carbon black is my daily go-to but I also have it in the black/brown shade for those "no makeup" days. The brush separates each lash and the formula builds both volume and length without clumping or flaking. The first time I bought this mascara, I also purchased a tube of Lash Paradise to compare them. While they both apply and look similar on my lashes, the Lash Paradise dries out very quickly, about 3 weeks, while the original Voluminous formula lasts for months and it's several dollars cheaper.

        Wasn't too sure that this would meet up to my expectations, but it was much better. I've been using $30+ mascaras trying to find one that worked really well every time. Decided to give this one a try and really like it.

          I'm a first time user on this mascara. I bought it cus it was on sale and yet to try another mascara that can be used as a backup. I liked the mascara I didn't like the fact that overtime it starts to flake haveing my under eyes with black flakes by end of day. For the price is right I would still buy this product.

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

          I absolutely LOVED this mascara when I first tried it. I adored the wand and I think it does an amazing job at volumizing and thickening lashes without clumping them (you really have to put a good 2-3 coats on before it starts to clump). The reason I did not give this 5 stars is because it runs on me!! I am so upset that it runs because I love how it makes my lashes look, but after a few hours i can see black spots under my lower lashes and it's pretty noticeable. It's not pieces that I can just brush off, I can't wipe it off with my fingers, I have to use soap and really scrub (which doesn't help with my already sensitive skin). My eyes do not get watery and I did use the waterproof one. Still gonna finish my bottle, unfortunately will most likely not repurchase :(

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

              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.

              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.
