this mascara enhances my small eyes....i have had compliments for years everytime i wear this mascara, but it isn't the compliment that i crave it is the self satisfaction i find everytime i look at my eyes in the mirror, isn't that how makeup is supposed to make one feel?

smudges. do not put on your lower lashes. doesn't make lash thicker, even when i used a primer. (bad choice of mascara) makes lashes feel hard, hard to remove -- it wasn't even the waterproof kind either

I found this product worked really well on my lashes, and I keep going back to it. I find that it does make my lashes longer and doesnt clump like a lot of other products, however i did find that it doesnt handle very well with someone whom has hayfever and leaky eyes...it can cause smudging. I have the colour Blue Rhapsody and i loooove the colour selection they have!

At first try, this mascara volumises very well. But after a couple of uses, it starts clumping. I hope L'Oreal changes the formula because it is a good product, it's just the clumping that bothers me.

At first I loved this mascara...it builds volume and doesn'y get clumpy after a few layers. However, it really doesn't hold any sort or curl...I curl my lashes everyday and after 30mins they are poker straight again. It's a shame as everything else about this mascara is great.

pros:
good volume
soft lashes
doesn't clump easily
good brush size

cons:
very wet formula (lashes droop after curling)
carbon black color is the same as any other black
messy to work with (smudges)

I'm still looking for a better one. Next I'm going to try MF Volume Cotour. I heard its amazing.


update:

I tried applying it a new way and it was amazing!!! I wiped off all excess product on the tube (like I always do) but this time i did 1 coat from root to tip, and then did 3 coats while squiggling the mascara wand, and WOW! the results were amazing! like false lashes. and not clumpy at all! I guess its all in the technique! after they dried I curled them, and boy am I blown away!

I found that this mascara wasn't very good for me. I have VERY hooded eyes, and found that this mascara smeared far too easily. Everytime I used it, I'd pretty much end up taking off my makeup and reapplying it, leaving the mascara off. It did seem to give more volume to my lashes, though.

I bought this just because it was 3.99 at target and I really needed a new mascara. Things I like about this mascara: my eyelashes dont feel as hard as they do with other mascara. It gives some volume, good enough for day time. It is the only mascara that I like to put on my lower lashes. All the others make me have raccoon eyes.

Cons: for a product called volumious I dont think it gives that much volume. also it does seem to wear off after some hours.

It does it's job for now but I will not buy this again.

EDIT: Why is this so gummy? I have never had a mascara do this to me. It has went from a light day time mascara to a gummy one that takes forever to dry. I have had this for about a month.

I always wind up going back to this mascara. Anytime a new one comes out that claims to be volumizing, I buy it. But I have wasted so much money doing that, because I wind up throwing the new ones away.

My go-to mascara. Great for thickening and lengthening. I won't use anything else. Lashes stay soft too. They don't get wiry and hard. Love it!
