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 What I wear when I don't use Falsies
I usually wear false eye lashes, but when I go a bit more natural, this is what I wear. I don't get real dramatic results, it works better for someone whose trying to look natural, without looking like they're not wearing makeup. It's hard to wash off at night, it leaves dark circles under my eyes.
All in all, I don't hate it. It's good for a cheap mascara.

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.
The brush sucks
Jorden from Florida
The mascara formula is ok, it does a good job of adding volume without clumping. The color is really pretty! It's subtle but noticeable if you're close enough. I just hate the brush!! It doesn't add enough product onto my lashes, which means I have to do multiple coats and before I know it, I have spider lashes :///
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.
Kaitlyn from GA
I have green eyes so I tried this hoping it would make them pop... & it did!!! The color payoff isn't crazy noticeable, but up close it made my lashes/eyes look so good. From far away, it just looks like a normal mascara. The wand is great too. Buying again.
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.
Better for green eyes than for hazel
Kat from Williamsburg VA
This is supposed to bring out the green, and it works well for full green eyes but not as well for hazel, it just made them look more brown
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

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.
Improves Look of My Natural Eyelashes
YDLT from California
Makes my natural eyelashes look thicker but not clumpy.
No color payoff
dz from st louis
I was so excited about this deep plum color but it does not show up on my dark lashes at all. Played wit it in the light and still nothing. I love every other Loreal mascara Ive tried but this one is a dud color-wise.
Affordable and beautiful!
Madi from Grand Rapids, MI
This mascara is great. For myself, I see no benefit in buying high end mascaras when affordable options like this are available. I like the bristley brush a lot. Usually with this type of brush, I start at the base of my eyelashes, and wiggle up. I do NOT do that with this mascara. It tends to cause clumping for me and too much product to be deposited onto my lashes. It works well with light strokes in the middle and ends of lashes. I curl my lashes usually before using. I have it in the black/brown color and its super natural looking with my dirty blonde hair. If you haven't tried brown mascara, I highly recommend it if you have lighter hair! Totally helps achieve that no makeup, makeup look.
Lashes fell out again
Debbie from Vancouver,wa
I bought it because I couldn't find my regular mascara. It gave me volume and length, but after 2 months I noticed I was missing a lot of lashes. I remembered this happened years ago with a Loreal mascara . I dont know what chemical causes my lashes to fall out, but I wont use Loreal mascara.

Why spend a fortune on high-end brands...this is THE BEST mascara for much less!
Mary from Braxton, West Virginia
I ordered the brown, because I wanted something natural looking. It very well accomplished that. I liked that it didn't clump my eyelashes together and it wasn't too thin at the same time. It stayed on all day, and was even exposed to heat and sweat. I used a curler before application and my lashes looked incredible and longer than imagined. Overall, I would buy again!!
This is my choice for mascara.
Carolyn from Nashua, NH
This is the best mascara I have found.
Best all around mascara.
Bacchante from Alaska
I have tried so many expensive and cheap mascaras. This blows them all away. Not clumpy, so it doesn't feel at all like the stuff that is trendy right now (roller lash, better than sex, etc). You can really brush it on heavy and it comes out gorgeous. Doesn't build out the tips like a fiber mascara, doesn't have the dark, clumpy wetness of many thickening mascaras. Does not look like falsies. Looks like gorgeous lashes when you're done, but not a no-makeup minimal look. Hard to explain, except to say it's what I've been looking for my whole life. Priced great for an everyday mascara. Try it!!!
WAY TOO HEAVY & CLUMPY
msBettyCracker from Santa Cruz
Bought this after hearing rave reviews in a write up.... the author must have been paid. This mascara applied WAY too heavy, and gave a "Twiggy" mash effect—super clumpy. Luckily I got it on sale so I didn't waste as much money as I could have. Also let my friend who's a makeup artist give it a whirl while she was visiting from out of town... she threw it away.
Gabriella from FL
I use this product everyday!!!! It not only makes my lashes longer and thicker but it also comes off easily and is overall just super beautiful!!! The pricing is amazing too!
Courtney from Louisiana
I usually go with Covergirl LashBlast but wanted to find a backup and one that gave a little more volume! I read tons of great reviews on the Maybelline Lash Sensational so I tried it and hated it. I have plenty of lashes but they're fine so I needed something that wasn't going to clump which the maybelline LS did really bad! This one is very light but also gives you great length with volume with no clumping!! I absolutely love the brush - very easy to apply and doesn't pull out too much product! This one and the Carbon Black are 2 of my new favorites! I didn't notice flaking like a few others did but I also don't use Waterproof mascara because it dries my lashes out too much and causes them to fall out faster.
vivian from skokie
it's an ok mascara. when i first apply it, it actually looks really nice and gives my lashes a lot of volume and definition, but once a few minutes have gone by, the mascara's weighed down my lashes. i also do find that this mascara flakes and smudges on me quite a bit—not a ton, but more so than my staple mascaras (telescopic and lash sensational)
