I have been a forever fan of the Voluminous mascaras. They never seem to disappoint. This one being the first one I ever tried (years and years ago) I always seem to repurchase it out of them all. Now, it doesn't give my short lashes much length (not that it's suppose to) but it does give them a dark color, definition and some volume and with a few coats it gives a great look. Price is amazing! I am a mascara junkie (can't leave the house without it - so I go through the tube quite quickly) so it doesn't hurt my wallet to repurchase this gold gem.
I purchased this mascara due to the glowing review by makeupbytiffanyd on youtube.The formula is very clumpy, dry, and thick making application extremely difficult. Left my lashes looking short and chunky with no definition or length. Within a few minutes this actually started to flake off and just looked absolutely disgusting. At first I thought maybe I just purchased a bad tube, but reading others reviews this seems to happen quite a bit.
I wouldn't say it's the best. I didn't have too much clumping, some flaking. It gave me decent volume and lengthening .Though I really hate that I can barely wash this off!
This is mediocre but not terrible. Not dramatic but not quite natural looking, a little lumpy and a little flaky. Slightly buildable but overall kind of blah. With a few coats it looks ok, but there are much better options by Rimmel and Maybelline.
I love this mascara! It makes my lashes very defined and voluminous and despite how wet the formula is I have no problems with smudging. The only reason I didn't give it an overall rating of 5 was because of how difficult it is to remove.
I've been a fan of the Voluminous line for years now and this one might be favorite. It gives my lashes a more natural looking boost - very pretty and dark. I don't think it adds definition exactly but it gives more weight without clumps, so that my lashes are more noticeable without screaming 'makeup'. It lasts all day without any raccoon eyes and doesn't bother my super sensitive eyes either.
This is my first L'Oreal mascara I have tried, normally when I buy drug store mascara I always buy Maybelline. However, any of the Maybelline mascaras' I have used within the last two years I have been disappointed with, and I cannot always buy high-end mascara on my college student budget. The pros: I love the way this mascara 'glides' on to my lashes w/o any clumping, never any flaking nor smudging during the day. Gives my lashes length even though it is a volumizing mascara. And the price is under $5 USD where I live. Cons: The stopper that keeps the mascara in the tube, sometimes lets too much product come out of the tube. I also like that I can have very natural lashes for day and amped up for going out/the Holiday season.
Many of my friends and family have asked "what mascara are you using?" And I usually do not receive comments on my lashes, even when buying a $20-$30 dollar mascara.
This flakes and smudges on me within a couple of hours. This stuff just did not work on me.
A lot of people complain about this mascara, and before I go any further into this review, I just want to mention that I have long lashes already. OKAY. In the past, I've used Maybelline and Covergirl mascaras only (Lash Blast, Illegal Length, Mega Plush...) and those have been hit & miss with me. This product can be a little clumpy, but it's nothing a quick comb-through after applying can't fix. It really lengthens my lashes & separates them nicely. It's doesn't make my lashes look thicker, but I can live with that because it makes them look natural, which is what I wanted. But if you have sparse lashes, this is definitely not for you. continued >>
makeupbytiffanyd raved about this but sadly i am very disappointed! at first i thought i had a bad one but apparently lots of reviews say its clumpy and gunky and i have to agree! formulation is dry thick and clumpy makes it look like my lashes are flaking off, like small little clumps on my lashes, not attractive to look at. it is very dark but thats the only plus side i can think of. also weighs down my lashes. not a fan! i saw that some ppl compared this to maybelline soft and full but no! i dont agree! this is much thicker and not natural looking at all.
