This is just meh...It just doesn't do all that much for my lashes...I don't see any appreciable increase in volume, and that's what I really need in a mascara. Voluminous? Hah! The formula is very smooth and clump free which I like, but that's not enough to compensate for its utter lack of oomph...I much prefer CG Lash Blast to this one...UPDATE (skip ahead two weeks...): There are times when this clumps like crazy! It was fine when I first opened the tube but now it's getting nasty...The other night I had about ten lashes which clumped together on my right lash line. I never get that with Lancome mascaras or CG Lash Blast! But it's so weird how I can use it on another day (same temperature and humidity level) and it doesn't clump too much...wtf? It's a moody little thing...I am really keeping my fingers crossed that this will not happen with Voluminous in Carbon Black...UPDATE (4/14/08): I really don't like this stuff, and I refuse to warm it up in a cup of hot water before I use it. What a PITA...I get clumps more often than not, I can't get it to grab my lashes on the outer corners to save my life, and I hate the gumminess of this when I touch it later. The reason why I have to touch my lashes later is because this s**t clumps so much and I am now getting disturbances in my vision because the clumps actually migrate down my lashes and block my sight. So I grab my lashes to work the sticky mess off...This is just unbelievable...And it doesn't come off with eye m/u remover very easily either.I guarantee that I will never, ever buy this crap again! This is now in the trash where it belongs...

OMG!!i hate this thing... i got this mascara because my friend told me that it was really good, it hold the curl and it was cheap so i was very excited and i bought it.. it is super super thick and clumpy... and when i put it on i look like that girl in the queen latifah commercial... in the part when she is like; you dont want clumpy lashes!! or something like that hehehe seriously... the first two days it wasnt that thick but then.. oh man.. if i wipe off the excess before applying it looks decent but like most masacras for me it doesnt hold the curl and its just like yucky... i have long thick lashes so maybe thats why its clumpy.. a dont know ...i trust my friend and we have the same taste in mascara so that makes me think that maybe the one i got its bad or old or whatever hehehe or maybe i just really wanted to like it.. i would buy again because i want to make sure it sucks hehe like, ALL of them suck ... because i trust my friend and people seem to love it... so give it a try it may work out for u!!xoxoi forgot to say that after some hours i looked like a racoon :( and people were like "u look tired" and i was like "mmm yep" so i would get waterproof next time.. if there's a next time

This is my HG mascara! After reading so many great reviews on this, I thought I would give it a try. I have tried SO many different types of mascara and I have never really been very happy with them. This stuff is amazing though! My lashes look full and soft, and it never flakes. I will most definitely repurchase!

A few years ago, when I was preparing for my first wedding - I went out and bought all L'Oreal makeup for it. To me, at the time, THAT was high end. One of my purchases at the time was Voluminous mascara. and how I loved it. It is probably the first tube of mascara I had ever used up. Didn't smear or smudge - just hung on to those lashes all day without getting flaky on me.Fast forward 7 years and I am on the cusp of my second wedding. I hadn't repurchased Voluminous in the time in between because I was trying my way with department store mascaras (when I wore mascara at all). None of them made me happy and I was starting to get a little antsy about what would go on my lashes for wedding #2. I happened to be in a drugstore makeup aisle and spotted voluminous and had instant flashbacks to how happy I was with it. So I bought 2 - one waterproof, one non. That big fluffy brush had me at first swipe and my lashes are now perfect again!I am now in Mascara Heaven again. I have realized my HG and I will not stray again. Plus, for $7.99 - how can I go wrong?

Okay mascara, colour was nice, very discrete and moderate effect, good for daytime, but not something I would stick to. I think it would work best for blond hair - fair skin, not as much for brunettes. It is very good though for its price.

i think this is great. its not clumpy and makes my lashes look longer and it does help with volume. i find that the more coats i apply the more dramatic it looks. i have bought this product over and over again.

After trying many many different kinds of mascaras, this has definitely been the best. It's wayy better than Diorshow. This mascara gives great volume and length. The only bad thing about it is that it doesn't keep the lashes up/curled. I have asian eyelashes, which tend to be stick straight :(. After curling my lashes I applied the mascara...and a couple minutes later the curl was gone. Other than that, I really love this mascara. It's the only one I've bought repeatedly.

Love this mascara along with Lash Out. I use Voluminous more when i go out and it is wonderful-does not clump, flake or anything, just looks natural. I use Lash out in the daytome because it is thinner in consitency. These are officially my HG mascaras and I have tried those from chanel, Maybelline, Bourjois, Guerlain, Revlon, Lancome, etc. but L'oreal, IME, has always been the best. Will def. repurchase.

After trying this for more than 2 weeks, I can definitely say that I like this mascara...a lot. Whenever I use it I get instantly longer lashes (inspite of the name and claim being Voluminous). The only problem is that it can be a bit clumpy and definitely requires a swipe with a lash brush. It gives me more length than Lashblast but I still like LB better because of other factors. This mascara is pretty darn good and I recommend it to everyone. I do have a feeling that it will also dry faster...but we'll see. For now, go on and get this.

Packaging: I got the waterproof version, and I really hate that the handle is metal but the tube is plastic, but both are gold so that it looks like it is the same gold metal, if that makes sense. That's just a nit picky thing though :) Wand: The wand is okay, I find that it doesn't do much for volumizing in my personal opinion, but it really gets the job done and doesn't clump. Volume: So-so. Lengthening: Not this mascara, but run a Telescopic wand through it too and it works well. Separation: Really good. Color: I got black, and it looks fine to me. Definition: 4 out of 5. Overall: Overall this is nice, but LashBlast and all the other rubber wands just seem better to me I guess. Lash Exact is nice, too.
