Most Helpful Positive Review Are You Wearing Falsies?
There are a few well kept secrets in the beauty industry that will save you time, money and aggravation if someone, anyone, who has worked in it cares enough to share.The biggest lie (and joke) that has perpetuated is that the more expensive mascara formulas are the only ones that give you that bangin', I'm wearing false syelashe look.NOT TRUE!Mascara formulas are by and large so similar that with a little leg work you can find a drugstore brand for [$] or under that is just as valid as the fancy stuff.Voluminous has been my go-to mascara for over 20 years and although I have tried other brands when they release something new, I have never found a replacement for this product.It lasts all day, doesn't flake or run, and makes your eyelashes look long, full and luxuriously thick.For under [$] you canm pull your look together with eyes that pop!Make it happen!
Most Helpful Critical Review adds fullness but disappointing
I was so excited to try this product! I saw so many good reviews about this product, so I had to try it for myself. I bought two of them. I defintly think this mascara makes your lashes appear fuller. But I didnt like that the product seemed to clump alot. The stopper in the mascara didnt seem to work. I found that after wearing this mascara my eyes would itch. I also noticed this mascara flaked off. I had a lot of problems with this products smudging. In my opinion this could be a great product if Loreal changes the formula so that the product glides on easier and doesnt clump. Trying to fix the problems I experienced with this mascara, I added vasaline and water. I think it helped but not enough too make a huge difference. Overall for the price its okay and defintly worth trying, but I dont think its as good as its made out to be.

Cobalt blue is beautiful! A few swipes and your lashes are blue! Fun and nice. Great formula, no flaking, buildable, no smudging, no irritation.
Deep green aka black, disappointing dark green that basically is black. It looks green on the wand but black on the lash. Even shows up black when applied over white primer. Do not recommend. Formula itself is ok, disappointing pigmentation. I was hoping for a forest green but it just looks like black.
Haven't tried the plum or other colors.
Can't go wrong with the black color. Both the original or blacker one are great. Love the formula.
I would buy this again

I like this mascara. It's not difficult to remove.
very good overall but smell is very strong!
soleil from clearwater, florida
love the color but I wish it didn't have a strong smell. I also wish the I also would have liked if it was more like the telescopic since that one works very well. overall it is very good but the smell is very strong so be careful not to have it open for long!
Shelby from Washington
I was very disappointed with this mascara. I was so excited to finally try a purple mascara but this was such a let down. It flaked everywhere, was not buildable, and lacked in giving length/volume. Very bland mascara that I will be trashing

I've tried many different mascaras, from high-end brands to drugstore staples, and I keep coming back to this one. It applies smoothly and evenly with zero clumps every time.
Not enough color
Teddy from USA
I haven't seen a review on the "deep green" mascara, so I decided to write one. I was definitely disappointed in the color. I was expecting it to be a lot greener considering that my eyelashes are not dark (my hair is dirty blonde). When I applied the mascara it just looked black. If I look really close it looks like its not exactly black, but even then you can't tell that the color is green. The mascara itself is also pretty flaky, so I didn't love that.
Deep green isn't very green
R from Ohio
I swatched this on my hand before using to see how green it would be... it wasn't. And on top of that, it was extremely dry and took several attempts, and a lot of pressure, to get any color transfer. When I wear it, it passes as brown mascara and if I do a side by side with black it would still look brown and not green. Even on my swatch it was more brown than green.
It's not even green, it's straight up black
Laurel from Easton, MA
Besides the fact that the color is completely off, it is a pretty ok mascara
Melissa from New York, NY
This is a very nice, affordable colored mascara. Usually, colorful mascaras don't show up very well on me, because my eyelashes are extremely dark. However, I was pleasantly surprised that with a normal application, the blue color definitely showed up on my eyelashes without me having to build it up. Which is a good thing because, if there is any downside to this formula, it's that it can dry down to leave you with "crunchy" lashes. It doesn't clump, but it does dry down and set, which can make it difficult to remove fully. It's not waterproof, but it acts like a waterproof mascara in this sense - difficulty removing it.
good staple mascara
mia p from Philadelphia, PA
I bought this mascara in the burgundy shade in hopes of bringing out my green eyes, but really you couldn't tell much of a difference. great mascara and worked beautifully, the color is definitely there.
Not the worst but not very good
Aliyah from california
At first this product was great, now it is becoming more sticky. takes a long time to dry and makes my eyelashes clumpy. It also easily gets on your eyelid. go with the one in the pink bottle
yes I would but this again!
Beanhead from Hanover, PA
It's a perfect hint of color to my lashes! I put it on top of the blackest black to add a "pop" of purple.in love with how it goes on!

I would buy this product again
JJ from Idaho
Separates lashes and doesn't clump or smudge. Received a compliment about how pretty my eyelashes were (I'm 65 years old, so that made my day!) Highly recommend!
Ariana from Miami
This mascara is really good at thickening and extending lashes. I really like it and will be repurchasing.
Definitely going to buy it again
Em from Perry Hall, Maryland
I think it's fantastic!!! I don't wanna spend a lot of money on makeup, so this being cheaper and such great quality made me happy! It makes my eyelashes look longer and fuller, and it doesn't clump at all!!
I would buy this product every time.
MS Keedy from San Marcos, TX
I can buy any mascara out the and I choose to use this product every time. I don't even need an eyelash curler.
Purple Girl from Aurora, CO
This mascara is great for the price. I have tried numerous high end mascaras and always come back to this one. It is just as good or even better than the high end mascaras and less than 1/2 the price.
mango from Florida
This mascara smudges so easily! One hour wear and I already looked like a raccoon.
oldie but a goodie
Maple from Cathedral City, CA
This was recommended to me by one of the workers at Ulta and I was glad to find this gem in a haystack of mascaras. I would buy it again after I run out.
Don't Understand the Reviews...
Ally from NC
I've tried this mascara out daily for a few weeks and just ended up throwing it away today. I really cannot find much to love about it. It's such a wet formula that I find it so difficult to use without clumping my lashes together, without much length at all. It's also very difficult to apply without getting all over the lash line of my eyelid. I always had to go in with a q-tip of micellar water and clean it up!
elena from Houston, Texas
Always buying on repeat! Best mascara
Best Mascara on the Market

I have used this mascara for years because there is none better for me!
MJP from WV
I purchased this mascara based on positive reviews. I see why. It's wonderful. My lashes appear much longer, separated and not crumby or clumpy. It feels soft and doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes. It will be my new go to.
