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.

I purchased the Deep Violet and after one use, my eyes were red and itching like crazy!! I washed it off completely but woke up the next morning with my eyes matted and still red, itching and burning!
One of the best drugstore mascaras you can get!
Kozimorg from Altoona, Pa
I love this mascara, and I have tried all kinds of higher end brands too! It's super affordable, and I love the look it gives your lashes. It's easy to apply, and I'm really a fan of the wand!
Myrns from Whittier
I Just bought and used the burgundy color and looks like normal color black. no color at all. Sadly returning it!
You have to try these!!
Koryne from Indiana
(I have dark brown/black eyelashes naturally) The blue is the boldest out of them all, the green is there but its not really a huge pop of color, the burgundy + purple don't show at all in natural light really but I still love them all as a cute subtle pop of color in a makeup look! I use the black/brown one on days I don't want to wear a lot of makeup and want to keep a natural look. I also have the purple and red colourpop mascaras and they definitely show WAY more pigment but they can get so dry and cakey after a few uses the L'oreal is overall my go-to between the 2!
I have bought this time and time again
Debs from IIllinois
My favorite mascara
Kenz from US
I tried the cobalt blue and couldn't even keep it on for 10 minutes without my eyes becoming unbearably itchy (tried it a few times with the same results). After looking up the ingredients, several ingredients are not technically safe to use around eyes. If you have sensitive skin, don't waste your money
Glam girl from Indiana
It's a pretty smurf blue color.... shows up so boldly 🥰
It's supposed to be purple, but barely shows up🥲
Glam girl from Indiana
Can barely see any color at all. Might as well save ur money and buy it in black
I will Not Ever be Buying this Product Again!!!
DisAppointed Christina from Eaton Rapids, MI
I loved the Color, it Was A Beautiful Purple, But got home and Tried this Right out of the Package and the Very Next Moring I Could Not even Open my Eyes. I had gotten Pink Eye from Using this Product. I was So Disappointed.
Ollie from Texas
I got the purple and when it was still wet the color was noticeable but after drying it just looked like a regular mascara. It's a shame because I got it to match my new hair! :(
Elise from Coral Springs Florida
Usually use it every day but this one was all dried up when opened. Must have been on shelf along time
Blue has the best impact
Ceci from Sacramento CA
Overall it's a good mascara. I mostly purchase the colored mascara. They all show color if you are directly in the sun but the blue has the most vivid color impact indoors and out doors. Blue is my favorite by far. I have purchased it over 3 times and will purchase again.
My go to mascara
Low Maintenance from Sacramento,CA
I have been using this mascara for six years. When you're on a tight budget and are looking for quality, this is the best choice. I've tried many drug store mascaras. This mascara is the best.
color is too dark
Florida Gal from Orlando, Florida
While the L'oreal Voluminous is still a great line of mascara products, I didn't care for this particular color. I was so excited to see a green mascara come from L'oreal, but was sorely disappointed when I put it on. When I have it on, it just looks like regular dark mascara. So don't buy this mascara if you're buying it specifically for this color, because you won't get it when you apply it!
Subtle shade of purple
KC from Mooresville, NC
I love this mascara. It is a very subltle shade of plum (purple)
Ella from Whispering Pines, NC
Just an everyday mascera
At the very best it's a good mascara
Alexandra from Colorado Springs, CO
I was excited to get this since green is my favorite color but it looks black, no one could look at you and tell you were wearing green mascara. L'Oréal voluminous is still a nice mascara though.
Great color payoff!
Patty from Indio, CA
I have tried this lines black, blackest black, cobalt blue colors and the white primer. I recommend them all! My absolute favorite is the blackest black, I have never used another mascara that is THIS black. The cobalt blue is also a favorite. I have been repurchasing for years and I will continue to do so.
I love it!!

I've used multiple mascaras in the past but this one makes my eyelashes look incredible and it doesn't flake!
Beautiful but flakes like crazy
AP from Michigan
I really like this mascara. I bought the one in violet and it looks beautiful on my lashes. The only problem is that it flakes throughout the day. I personally don't mind but if flaking is a dealbreaker for you then you probably shouldn't buy this mascara.
Doesn't look green to me
PJ from Pittsburgh, PA
It glides on fine but this doesn't show up green on my lashes so disappointed. It looks like a light black color.
Lash maven from Los Angeles
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
scmissy2 from South Carolina (SC)
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
