smudges & flakes everywhere. With in two hours my eyelid and underneath my eye area is covered in black. Gives ok volume but I can't deal with the flaking.
A waste of money.
I have literaly been thru like 20 tubes of this mascara definetly my fave mascara EVER it makes my lashes look so thick,long and VOLUMINOUS.. and even better its only 5$..
Why I did not heed the reviews is beyond me now.
I first applied, and thought WOW I love this. It looks great. Don't know what they were TALKING ABOUT. 2 hours later, it is all under my eyes. It basically flakes off like cheap paint on an abandoned building. Yuk. If it would stay on, it would be a keeper though.
L'Oreal: whatever you put in the old Voluminous Waterproof SOFT BLACK was holy grail mascara stuff. BRING IT BACK
This is horrible. It smudges like crazy an hour after I put it on. By the end of the day it's all over my face. Absolutely NOT waterproof. I meant to buy the original Voluminous and got this instead... never again!
I just bought the mascara yesterday, and I'm already disappointed.
As others said, not the greatest for those who have oily eyelids. I found that after... 3 hours it smudged under my eyes, which while it has happened to me with other mascaras I've tried, it's never happened to both eyes.
Once I came home and rubbed my eye, a couple eyelashes came off and the mascara just smudged all over my eyes.
HOWEVER, the volume is amazing! My curl didn't really loosen up, but it loosened up a little. I love the volume, but I really can't handle the smudges under my eyes. I would not repurchase.
I have tried the non-waterproof mascara and didn't like it at all..it was too wet although this one is too is way less than the other..LOVE the volume that gives to my lashes and the thickness too...can't believe the low rate on this one.. =( but i love it!
I love this product because of the amazing volume it gives you. Your lashes after a few coats looks like falsies and is super black. The lengthening kinda sucks and the waterproof formula too. Since i have flat asian lid that gets oily my mascara gets smeared on the outer corners of my eye. This is great for people with non-oily regular creases who wants falsh looking lashes! I give this 5 lipsticks for its incomparable volume!
I'm surprised as well with the shocking reviews this mascara gets! I love this mascara! It's my favorite and close duplicate to the $24.50 diorshow waterproof mascara I used to buy. This mascara does all the lengthening, separation and thickens/volumes once you coat it a few times like the diorshow! You can basically get this at target or any drugstore for cheap ($6-$7!) And it makes my lashes look dramatic and falsie too. I would highly recommend this to those who are CD diorshow lovers and want to budget their spending and still have the same quality look, or who looks to having dramatic "falsie" looking lashes. Will repurchase after finishing the tube.
I've retired all my mascaras (except for Telescopic for my every day wearing mascara) for this one. I'm really surprised at the low reviews, actually because this mascara is fantastic for me! The colour is the blackest mascara I've ever purchased...it makes my lashes long and thick at the same time which I find hard to get in 1 mascara. The formula is very wet but I find it doesn't dry out fast and you have to wait a few seconds for it to dry.
The only thing I don't like which took away 1 lipstick is that its SO hard to get off at night. I use makeup wipes and eye makeup remover and I still wake up with black under my eyes from whatever is left over coming off when I sleep.I have to use makeup remover again in the morning to get the rest of it off my eyes. But that means the staying power is fantastic...I do find that the brush sort of large which sometimes is hard to coat the bottom lashes without it getting on my skin but its an easy clean up with a q tip which I usually do anyway just to clean up any eyeshadow fallout or to clean up the eyeshadow on my lower lashes.
I do recommend this mascara for anyone who likes all these qualities in a mascara. I love it and its my favorite!!!!!!
I had major fallout with this mascara. It made my lashes nice and dark but within an hour or so, it was all beneath my eyes, even after taking every precaution I could think of to stop it.
