I have tried quite a lot of mascaras. Every time I run out, I try a new one, and write the review here in MUA because I have the mission to find my holly grail mascara. I LOVED the discontinued revlon everylash curling mascara and another discontinued maybelline lash stylist. So back to the review... I had very high expectations about this mascara, and it i did not let me down, my lashes look so good, long, thick, curly, black and dramatic, but come on, Im pretty sure there is something better out there, I'll keep looking to find it.
This is similar to diorshow blackout and maybelline colossal. I know this is not the best review! This product performs better when its a little dry after one month of use.. and you will get the best of it.
I always get L'oreal voluminous CARBON black mascara, the mascara wand is a little different then the regular voluminous & I think it makes your lashes look INCREDIBLE. It's a lot of volume and it doesn't look caked on, it's super pretty. I'd recommend L'orreal voluminous Carbon black too anyone!
I truly love this mascara. It delivers amazing results -- thick, rich, luscious lashes. The end results is strong enough that you can skip liner and still have a defined eye. Plus I get a nice curl from this even without curling my lashes. Is it perfect - no. Is it dummy proof - no. Is it a great product for the price and results - yes.
- Lengthens and thickens
- Deliver a dark, rich look
- Is comparably inexpensive for what it delivers
- Love the brush - rubber does not and never will do it for me - it really grips the lashes and coats them
- Easy to remove - I just wash my face with my usual cleanser and it comes off
- You absolutely have to give ANY L'Oreal mascara a two week breaking in period. They all tend to start too wet and then end up in an amazing place. Patience will be rewarded. Carry a lash comb in the beginning.
- It will clump if you apply to many layers - but I find you don't need as many for the desired result
- A lot comes out of the tube, I am constantly scraping the sides. If you skip this step, hello spider town!
All this said, I have pretty dark, thick lashes naturally. However, they are straight and need a "boost" to really frame my eyes. This product does that amazingly well. Two to three coats carefully applied gets the job done (vs. CG Clump Crusher which didn't deliver for me after 6 coats - rather grapple with possible clumps than not get the look I want).
I really like how my lashes looked after applying,does not flake or run, but very hard to remove at the end of the day. Not recommended for an everyday mascara. I only use it for special occasions, since its such a pain to take off
I absolutely love this mascara for the price I pay. It stays on all day unlike the other mascaras I've tried which usually end up giving me a dark circle appearance. The waterproof one is really hard to remove without a good makeup remover. I stick to the non waterproof one and its just great.
Very disappointed with this product. I've tried countless mascaras and decided to try this one after hearing all many people rave over it. It's very goopy and easily leaves clumps if I'm not precision perfect. Definitely don't use this if you need to leave in a hurry or you'll end up with spider lashes!
Best drugstore mascara! I'll buy this over & over again.
Best mascara for the money. I try others on occasion but keep coming back to this one.
one of the best mascaras i've ever tried. it really thickens my lashes really well. it did add length as well. this is the only mascara that really adds volume to my lashes. i've tried the covergirl lash blast volume but it didn't do much for me. i have short, straight lashes yet this mascara makes it long and thick. LOVE IT! :)
+REALLY dark pigment
+holds the curl throughout the day
+it also contains Panthenol which conditions the lashes (this is a plus!)
-clumps if not applied properly (make sure you have a good eyelash comb!)
this is definitely a must-have in every woman's makeup bag! :)
