I really like this mascara. It gives me the dramatic length and volume that I like and it is the blackest mascara I've tried. The only downside is that it can tend to get clumpy if you layer it too much and the product also dries out quickly, I'd say it lasts for about a month. With that said, I'll only buy it if it's on sale. It's worth giving a try.
So, I bought this mascara hearing great reviews about it..the first day I totally removed it because I was so frustrated with the application. The brush has WAY TOO much excess product! You have to work with this mascara which I don't like at all..it could just be my impatience. It did hold a nice curl, but the brush is too clumpy and hard to work with.Will NOT purchase again.
if you want porn star/ play boy lashes this is the tube to get
When I first used this mascara i noticed how thick it was and there was far too much product on the wand which I had to scrape some off onto the top of the container. Nice.
I would still end up with too much product on my lashes and always have to use a mascara comb to get the clumps out.
A month down the line, I always find mascara products work a bit better (maybe this is cos the wand doesnt pick as much product up) but I still have to use a comb. The only thing I like is that it is very black and provides length but it's far too thick & gloopy for my liking & is too much hard work. I wont be buying it again.
I got mine at walgreens for $4.99 so the price was perfect. I used it for about a week. My lashes have never looked so beautiful, seperated, black and long. It would have been the perfect mascara, except that it smudged like crazy! The mascara never really seems to dry, you can lightly rub your finger on the underside of your lashes and end up with color on your finger. I looked like a raccoon a couple of hours after application. Even tho my lashes looked like falsies, the smudges under my eyes made me look like I haven't slept in ages. So, no, I won't be buying this again. If anyone knows of something that provides the same look w/o the smudges, let me know!
I had high hopes because I had used Voluminous for years BUT although a gorgeous deep black, it did not hold the curl, it smudges and crumbles all over my under eye area creating a persistent dark shadow AND it irritated my eyes.
I want to love this mascara. Whenever I put it on it looks like I'm wearing false eyelashes. It looks great. But after a couple of hours, it smudges and crumbles all over my undereye and I look horrific - which is a deal breaker.
The ORIGINAL waterproof Voluminous mascara has been my favorite for years --- it even beats my beloved Lancome Definicils. I was out of my tube, thought this Carbon Black is just a different packaging and bought one. What a mistake! It clumps, flakes, weighs down the curl, doesn't give as much volume, and the worst of all, it SMUDGES really bad. At first I thought L'Oreal changed the formula on the entire Voluminous line, and was relieved to see the original waterproof in black is still available (just hope they don't discontinue it). ***STAY AWAY FROM VOLUMINOUS CARBON BLACK***
This is great mascara when you are looking for big thick lashes! The formula is super thick, so it builds up lashes easily, but since it is so thick, you have to wipe off the excess on the brush before applying or else you'll get clumps! I don't like to use this on my bottom lashes, as it is so thick, I tend to smudge it before it dries.
What I'm looking for in a mascara is thickening, definition and curling and Voluminous delivers on two of those categories. It is the most volumizing mascara, I've ever used and it definitely gives some curl when you're too busy to use a curler. But it has a tendency to clump if not used carefully which can be a hassle when you're in a hurry. Overall, this is one of the best mascaras out there and is my go to, until I find my HG-if it even exists :)
