Most Helpful Positive Review I loved this product and would highly suggest.
I evenly applied this product to my bottom and top lashes and found that it lengthened them.And added volume. It was hard to remove which maybe good for some situations.
Most Helpful Critical Review Smudges.
This mascara holds my curl created by my eyelash curler on my incredibly stubborn, straight eyelashes. This is the first thing I look for in a mascara. Secondly, it adds a natural amount of volume and length. I would like a more dramatic look, but it does add more than what my normal eyelashes or other mascaras give me. The only thing I can't get over with this mascara is that it smudges throughout the day. Near the base of my bottom and top eyelashes as well as at the tip where my eyelashes touch my skin. It's not super noticeable, but it is very annoying and creates a greyish color around my eyes which is not pretty, at all. I'm constantly rubbing on my skin to try and get it off... L'Oreal, PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL DOUBLE EXTEND WATERPROOF MASCARA! This mascara held my curl, created a dramatic look through volume and length, and did not smudge. I used it for 6+ years and now I can't find anything that even compares to it.

I'm always looking for great, lash building, smudgeproof, waterproof mascara. Well I still haven't found it yet. This goes on your lashes nicely, looks really good but did smudge after a few hours.
I don't like it
hi-ban from San Francisco, CA
I don't like this mascara. The product is very chunky and my lashes look like a mess, the brown is just black.
Give us a curved brush please
Taylor T. from Tennessee
I love this mascara but really prefer the curved brush. I have looked many places to try to find this color brown in a waterproof formula with a curved brush. I have only found the straight brush. Does it exist?

Great everyday mascara.
Great product at great price!
GravyGrl from Pennsylvania
I've tried lots of mascara and have decided to purchase moderate priced so I can keep a fresh product at all times. Now I put dates on mascara. I like the East of application and great staying power. Works for me. I do not wear eye shadow.
Forever My Favorite
Mlardin from Illinois
I've given other mascaras a try, even super expensive ones, and always come back around to Loreal Voluminous. The brown/black gives an amazing natural, not wearing makeup, look. The carbon black is awesome for nights out or when you want a more dramatic look. The waterproof is powerful, and if only applied in several layers while still wet, will not flake up. Just don't expect it be waterproof if you use a lash primer. I figured this out the hard way. I thought maybe the formula had changed because it would flake off or melt under my eyes. Then I stopped using the primer, and it never happened again. I think the primer prevents adhesion for the mascara to be long lasting. So if you can't live without lash primer don't expect it to behave like it should.
Great Volume-Stays On All Day
Sunnyside23 from NJ
My eyes tear no matter if I do or don't wear eye products. The tearing causes my eye makeup to travel and irritate my eyes. This waterproof mascara and their waterproof liquid eyeliner work very well together. I have no issues and look great all day without runny eye makeup. The only downside is that it is a little difficult to remove even with eye makeup remover, but it does eventually dissolve with 2 or 3 swipes of the remover.
Long & lush lashes.

This mascara really brightens you eyes & your lashes are full with length.

My most favorite mascara that never disappoints!

Honestly, mascara is mascara in my opinion. You don't need to purchase an expensive mascara to find a quality product. That being said, this mascara is the best I've ever tried! I've used it for years, and have tried other mascaras throughout but none of them has measured up. The brown black color is a more natural color for my hair and skin tone.
Never buying again due to under eye smudging
Jess from CT
The first time I used this product I came home from work with smudges underneath my eyes. 24 hours later, I have washed my face twice and showered once and STILL have black smudges under my eye. I will never use or buy this again.
Tried the rest, this is the best!
Tracy from Windsor CO
Yes 'Ive tried the $30-$40 mascara. They're great and all, but for the price, this rivals them all. Save your money and buy Voluminous!

We're all taught not to touch our faces or rub our eyes for health and hygiene purposes. However, if i do accidentally end up rubbing my eyes for whatever reason(s), I have no problem with smudging.
separates & lengthens
kitkat from Nashville
i like this one b/c its waterproof/ tear proof (a must at funerals) and easily comes off w/ makeup remover clothes. Also i have sensitive ears on alot of eye makeup & causes my eyes to water, this one doesnt irritate at all
Does not clump my lashes
AAAsMom from NM
I love this mascara, it goes on my lashes nicely and can reapply without clumpy buildup.
Always does the job it's supposed to do!!
Mifi from Skokie IL
I have used this product for about 20 years. So glad it is still available.
Bad coverage I want to return it back
Tiba from Ohio
Very bad coverage
Karen from NJ
I tried this product as part of my make-up routine but found it very disappointing. It is hard to apply and does not do the job as well as my previous brand which I did not buy because the store didn't have it. I will be going back to the previous brand as soon as possible.
Dry & flaky volume
OC Babe 55 from Orange County, CA
There's VOLUME--but that's the only plus. I bought carbon black and it started to dry out within a week. By day 10, it was done. Flakes all over giving "raccoon eye" within a few hours. Hard to remove at night even with a good eye makeup remover (Lancome). It was nice to try out because I've heard good things, but it's a hard no for me. Won't buy again. Price is low, but not worth it.
Best drug store mascara
jay from phoenix
i always get the waterproof kind and it lasts all day. my lashes look really long when im only wearing mascara and not clumpy at all. its true black so the color is good and its affordable. my fav drugstore mascara, have been using it for years
TralaMom from TX
Love this mascara. I travel regularly and have to keep mascara in different travel bags in addition to my regular everyday makeup kit. It's a favorite go to in waterproof. Stays flexible for many months after opening. I would recommend and buy this product again.
Ali from Pgh
The worst mascara.
CE from Phoenix, AZ
I have been using L'Oreal mascara for over 10 years and it's been one of the best mascaras I have found, including high end. However, this waterproof one(that I purchased by mistake)is absolutely the WORST! It's waterproof, which makes it absolutely impossible to remove! Yet, somehow(because I have extremely long eye lashes) it manages to smudge ALL over my top and bottom eyelids. People are constantly telling my I have mascara all over my face. And it adds no volume or length, whatsoever!
I love this mascara
Joyce from CA
I have been using this mascara for years, it is consistant in its quality. I love the colors and the fact that I do not have raccoon eyes eventhough it can easily be washed off with soap and water.
