Love it

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

I normally use tarte mascara. I thought I would try something cheaper for a change. The wand feels flimsy so I thought it wouldn't go on very well. It's wonderful. I actually like it better than tarte. It hasn't dried up yet either. Usually the cheaper brands dry quickly if they work well.

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

    I was super excited to try this mascara, because I had heard nothing but good about it. However, when I got mine, I was extremely disappointed. It's extremely clumpy, but the one thing I did like was how dark it made my lashes and how it lengthened them. The clumpy-ness just drove me crazy. I had to run it under hot water every single day, because it was the only way to use it without it being clumpy to the extreme.

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

      Honestly the BEST mascara I use. You can layer on more for a more dramatic look or use only a couple coats for an amplified natural look. I've used $20+ mascaras and stopped purchasing any of the expensive brands because L'Oréal and this mascara specifically do a better job at a fraction of the cost.
      Also this one doesn't have fibers so it's great for people who have sensitive eyes like mine.

        I've tried lots and LOTS of mascaras from various companies. I don't know why I do that, because I keep coming back to Voluminous mascara. It's such a great mascara and has a great price, too.

            Hands down this is L'oreal's best mascara! Whether it be the original or carbon black, it's an all time favorite of mine. It makes them so dramatic and voluminous. I've been using it for years and I will never stop using it. Always a staple in my collection.

              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?

                A:

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

                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!

                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.
