Most Helpful Positive Review Boldest Lashes yet
Thank you L'Oreal for bringing 2 step Fiber mascaras to the drugstore with a drugstore price. The first time I wore this my boyfriend actually noticed and commented on it! The first step gives great separation, curls, and adds a bit of volume & especially color. The fibers are in the second step and they add a ton of length and volume to your already separated individual lashes so you don't have a volumizing mascara that basically just adds clumps.
Most Helpful Critical Review Never again
When I used the waterproof ones I was astonished to see my lashes looking so long and stay curl. I thought this is even better than the waterproof paradise lash mascara I love so much. Everything looks so perfect until 4-5 hours later my eyes start to feel dry and a bit itchy. When I remove it at night, the skin around my eyes turns red and really itchy. When I woke up the next morning, my skin around my eyes continued to itch and was a bit swollen. I tried the second time and it did the same thing to my eyes. I don't recommend for sensitive skin!!

The volume and length results were ok...not as much length as other tube mascaras. My biggest issue was all the flaking...I had fibers and flakes in my eyes all day. Lashes felt soft to the touch, not super crispy, but they also felt very heavy. Due to the flaking fibers in my eyes all day this was a one and done for me. Was looking for a tubing mascara like my favorite, thrive, but with a bit more volume.
SUPER BLACK AND BOLD!!! Doesn't weigh down lashes
Mari from Las Vegas, NV
This is one my favorite mascaras, better than Tarte, Milk, Urban Decay or others like that. My lashes are long but flat so I curl them before applying mascara and all of the more expensive mascaras Weigh down my lashes, THIS DOES NOT!!!! It keeps them nice and curly and perfect!!!
i WOULD NOT BUY AGAIN
Rosie from Texas
After about 4 hours of having this on, I had black underneath my eyes. It was very sloppy
Omg I have lashes!
Nikki from Michigan
I have the smallest lashes ever. And I've been wanting a fiber mascara for awhile. So I looked into reviews and grabbed this one. I am 100% happy with how my lashes turned out. I'd say my expectations were low and any result would've been a positive. But I'm geeked that I now have lashes like a real girl haha.
Returned this Mascara - Poor Performer
RedMcN from Arizona
Purchased this product because I have not been able to get my lash extensions since COVID. Hoped that this mascara would give natural lashes a boost. Ended up returning product after 1 use.
Lengthens and Enhances sparse lashes
Suz from Colorado
I've been using two-step mascaras from L'Oreal for years. I think it's a necessity now that I'm older and my lashes are lighter, thinner and shorter than ever. This Voluminous Fiber X mascara is similar to the others, except that the primer step is black. Sometimes, I have to think about whether I put on the second coat yet. But the two steps definitely define and lengthen my lashes.
I absolutely love this mascara
BABYGRL134 from Pennsylvania
I absolutely love this mascara all of my other mascara we're put to shame the second I use this one!!!
ellen from houston

Great Length & Volume

Love this mascara! Always get compliments!

Having had a lot of success with L'Oreal's Voluminous False Fiber Lashes, I thought I'd give this one a try. While it's not bad, I don't like it as much as the FFL. This is a 2 step mascara and I think the 1 step FFL is better for my puny lashes. I think this must be a lot better for those who have long lashes ... and who don't really need fiber mascaras. Lol.
Pointless 2 step process
Dana from Va
Not sure what the point of 2 different tubes is.. I'm just doing double the work for lashes that look the same as when I use my trusty great lash mascara. Feels a little sticky and heavy when I blink. There are better ones with less steps.

Maybelline's Lash Sensational was my favorite mascara until I tried this one. Some other reviews cited the dryness of the formula as the biggest downside, and I can understand that. It doesn't bother me, I didn't even really notice it until I read the reviews and had to agree. This mascara makes my lashes so dark and fanned out. The first coat separates the lashes very well, and I was afraid that the second coat would clump up the fine definition of the first. It doesn't! It almost fills in the spaces between your lashes, making them appear feathery, dramatic, and CLUMP-FREE! The only downside is that it can rub just a little bit off onto your under eyes. Normally, that would annoy me, but this is pretty good about staying on, and I only notice transfer after I laugh really hard (I have chubby cheeks so when I laugh, my eyes squeeze closed). Every once in a while, I just swipe my finger under my eyes to fix any mistakes and it's done, no mirror needed. My last huge plus is that it is easy to remove. Usually when I read that in reviews, it's a bit of a turn off because it makes me think it doesn't have staying power. That's not true with this. It's worth a try!
Jin from Grand Rapids Mi
i use it when i don't have any falsies and it makes my eyes pop! almost as if i am wearing some😍
Very excited that I tried this - will keep buying
ICU from King Of Prussia
I've used so many mascaras over the years and had been on a Benefit kick recently. I needed something new because I didn't feel like I was getting what I needed. I saw this on a best of mascara list and figured no harm in trying it. Excellent. You can see my lashes and I've now recommended it to others. I read some of the negative reviews and I'm surprised. I also have very sensitive eyes but I didn't experience anything different using this mascara as compared to any others. It didn't flake. If you have dry eyes and use drops like I do - you're going to have dry eyes no matter what mascara you use. This did not make my eyes itch or burn.
waaaaay too dry
Dom from Ohio
This product dries so fast you literally have to swipe it under running water if you want it to go on right 😂 Such a disaster
Ktlprobin from Maine
Starting with the good- this gave me stunning lashes and was absolutely waterproof and wore amazing!
The downside I had an allergic reaction within a few hours of wearing this and it was awful - couldn't wear make up for days - swelling - rash - raw - flakey !
So even tho it's awesome if you buy I would test on your arm prior to use - I have never had an allergic reaction to mascara.
Best mascara ever
Shopper from NY
The brush tips assume everyone has large golf ball eyes. Inset eyes need a skinny brush. I must cut the brush with a cuticle scissor into a pointy tip brush in order to get into the tight corners of my eyes or I'll get mascara on my eyelids. Still the best mascara ever.
Won't buy again
Motherof3 from Cottonwood, CA
It goes on good and even without clumps but dries quick so if you like to layer your mascara you better be quick. Made my eyes itch. By the end of the day it flaked off and was under my eyes. Definitely not an all day wear mascara.
Do not buy this!
bethyn from Texas
I'm in shock at this mascara and that anyone thinks it's any good. Just gettin past the horrible chemical smell is bad enough, but tons of my eyelashes fell out after using it for just a few days. Maybe because it's hard to get off but I have eyelashes falling out all day. I've never had this happen before and have used Loreal and Lancome for many years. The smell is so intense that I just can't believe it. I've never had a mascara smell so strong and horrible before. I was scared to use it but went ahead and tried. I'm so sorry I did. I plan to add this review to every place I can to hopefully spare someone else from putting who knows what, on their eyelashes and watching them all fall out!
favorite drugstore mascara
partlycloudy from nj
I absolutely love this mascara. I'd like to start off by saying I do have pretty nice thick and longish lashes naturally. but when I put this mascara on my lashes are beautifully separated and lifted. it lasts until I take it off and I don't mind the 2 steps nor do I find either formula to be drying. I've already have purchased another, albeit the waterproof version, that one takes a bit more work but this one is so easy and gives me beautiful results.
Best mascara around!
Jen from Picayune
This is the best. Sometimes all I use is the primer and it still looks great.
Ardb78 from Tampa, FL
works as good as if not better than more expensive options
Looks like I actually have lashes!
mnpoof from Salt Lake City, Utah
My natural lashes don't hold a curl from a curler and not even cult favorite mascaras do me any favors. But this one? My favorite mascara ever! I had a heavily photographed event about a month ago and I just couldn't get falsies to work and I didn't want to look like I had no lashes (even though mine are black). This added the length I was looking for and it stays for ages. I apply the primer liberally. So glad I gave it a shot.
Yes. Black lash builder is good
Rr from Ohio
It is fine and priced well
I'm in love!!
MrsM12 from Indianapolis
This mascara doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes, the waterproof one holds a curl REALLY well, and it makes my lashes look long, dark, and separated. The black primer is such a great idea, and I even love the shape of the wands... No goopy tarantula lashes! No smudging! No gray lashes from white primer showing through! I'm really impressed with this mascara!!!
