I was estatic to purchase this mascara as my friend had it, and it looked great on her. Since my eyes water a lot, I picked up the waterproof version of the mascara. Going on for a month or so, it was no different from any of the other cheap drugstore mascaras I had previously purchased. It added no special boost or curl to my lashes, though I did like how dark the were when I used it. My other problem was that it caused my lashes to fall out. I was left with shorter, less voluminous lashes. Opposite of what the product preaches. I wouldn't buy this again; at least not the waterproof version.

Great mascara. I'm normally not too impressed with L'oreal mascaras. I purchased a bunch of L'oreal makeup at drugstore.com when it as 30% off and this was a pleasant surprise. First of all I have a huge issue with my (aging) eyes watering--particularly my right eye. So finding a good waterproof mascara is a must. This mascara made my lashes look amazing. I let it dry slightly between coats and was surprised how great my lashes looked with very little effort. And I have to say that it held up at least as good as the other waterproof mascaras I have tried. I usually stick to drug store mascaras and I have tried them all. Will definitely repurchase.

I experienced a family bereavement this year and needed to switch to a mascara that was completely waterproof and that I could wear daily. Not only is Voluminous Million Lashes (Black Waterproof) completely waterproof, it's the best mascara I've ever tried. It feels like a normal mascara , i.e. not crispy or sticky, it's a deep black colour, and you can build it up without clumping to get beautifully long and defined lashes. It never smudges or smears, so if you prefer long-wear makeup anyway, this is the one for you. I always use cleansing oil to remove my makeup and this comes off fine.
The price is also very reasonable. I always felt guilty when I bought expensive mascara (lipstick's another story), so stuck to Max Factor Masterpiece Max for years, which was more than adequate, but this blows that out of the water. With the Masterpiece, I always felt that there was better out there, but with Million Lashes, I don't.
If you wear this with one of Bobbi Brown's gel liners, your makeup with be absolutely cry-proof.

I have used this in both the regular black and the blackest black. For some reason the regular black waterproof is a pretty average mascara although it is very waterproof and gives nice definition. The blackest black waterproof is much better. I get dramatic length, nice fullnest and it wears like iron. I have thin but long lashes and this makes them thick and full. It holds the curl even after getting rained on.
I had becomes less than thrilled with L'Oreal's mascaras but this one totally redeems this company. Now if they would stop the animal testing this would be HG for me.

To start off, I have short, stick straight eyelashes and I wear contact lenses. I did not really wear much mascara due to the fact that my lashes were basically non-existent and it was pointless to apply it everyday. This mascara changed that for me and I've been using this mascara for about four months now. This mascara really does hold curl but it will not hold curl if your eyes water a lot and if your eyelash curling technique is not good. Make sure you have a good eyelash curler, because I accidentally bent my eyelash curler (giving it a wonky shape that didn't hold the curl in my lashes very well) and I use to think that this mascara the problem until I bought a new eyelash curler. This mascara volumizes without clumping at all, and really separates my lashes but it does clump quite a bit on my lower lashes. I suppose it is because my lower lashes are veryyy short and thin, so if you have reallllyyyyy thin and short lashes this may not be for you. It could be that my technique for applying to the lower lashes is wrong though. I noticed that it doesn't clump at all when this mascara reaches 3 months of being opened. After the mascara dries, DO NOT apply any more coats of mascara unless you want spider lashes. This mascara also lengthens a bit but not by that much, but its okay because with the kind of lashes I have I do not expect falsies. This never flakes. This does smudge if you apply it to your lower lashes (I have oily skin), a quick fix for that is to just apply powder under your eyes and it won't smudge :) I highly recommend this mascara to anyone with short, stick straight eyelashes.

As a general rule, I despise L'Oreal mascara. I realize everyone else loves it, but it runs, smudges, flakes, and is generally a waste of money for me. This one changed my tune though. I had no intention of buying it but for some reason, I did.
The first time I tried it, I wasn't really impressed. It didn't coat my lashes that well, and I was convinced I'd wasted my money again. Since I bought it because I was completely out, I had to use it again the next day, and I don't know what happened overnight, but the next morning, it coated them on the first pass. No idea what was up with that, but I was satisfied. It was buildable and didn't clump, so I was warming up to L'Oreal slowly but surely. It didn't flake all day or run, and I was a bad girl that night and slept in my eye makeup (I know, I know), and when I woke up the next day, it hadn't budged. It looked the same as it did when I had applied it the previous morning.
S.T.U.N.N.E.D. Now on a particularly humid day, I usually get a little smudging from my lower lashes with every mascara known to man, including this one, but I can't blame the formula for it. I have long lower lashes and for whatever reason, that section of my face gets kind of dewy after a while and that's all it takes. :)
So I am now a convert, at least with this mascara!

Almost HG. My No. 1 requirement is that a mascara must hold curl and this does like no other I've tried and at my age I've tried them all. In fact I would go so far as to say that it even adds some curl which is unheard of for me. I have very long but rather fine lashes due to my beloved Latisse. Sadly though they grow downward so I curl my lashes a lot which takes time to get them just right into a nice curve and this mascara holds them there all day. I can get dramatic results by adding two or three layers being careful not to let it dry completely between coats. The results are dramatic but it takes a bit of time but it's totally worth it. Also, no clumping with this brush. I usually prefer traditional brushes but this one is really good and isn't too huge like some so you can get all the corner lashes.
I have used many, many waterproof mascaras because they hold curl better and this is one of the easiest to remove by far. I use remover with the two layers that you have to shake together, I put it on a cotton pad, hold it on my eye for under a minute to let it act like a solvent and then wipe it all off in a few passes. No yanking, no irritation. I always wonder if people who have trouble removing mascara are actually giving the remover a chance to penetrate the product and let it do its job.

I am totally in love with this mascara. Is it the most Volumizing and dramatic mascara ever? ...probably not! BUT It definitely gives me the best defined and perfectly pumped up lashes that stay curled that I've ever had. This mascara does not budge on me until I am ready to remove it with oil and it holds a curl better than any other I have tried. It may be hard to get off by conventional methods, but I don't have any trouble removing it with oil. I love the brush that comes with this. It is one of those rubber brushes similar to CG Lashblast, but not quite as large so I have an easier time getting to all my lashes. The formula is not too wet so that it is messy to apply, nor is it so dry that it makes my lashes feel brittle. I get no clumps... just nicely separated lashes that I can build up to my desired volume. The packaging is just the icing on the cake for me. I love the chic gold tube. I would definitely call this my HG after trying dozens of ds mascaras.

The most difficult mascara to remove ..period..hate this product.Do not waste your money unless you have Lots of time to try to get it off your lashes.I tried to remove this with eyemakeup removers,oils including olive, coconut and almond.. The skin around my eyes was very sore after each attempt.. I am a bit of a mascara addict and try new ones as soon as they hit the market. skip this one guys !!

Oh gosh, this mascara is as great as falling in love. Haha. I remember seeing so many commercials with this mascara which is what caused me to buy it. I'm a sucker for commercials haha. Well anyways, I bought the waterproof version because for some strange reason it was $3 cheaper than the nonwaterproof version. The packaging is beautiful, I love the golden tube. This mascara has never clumped on me, i've been a proud owner for maybe 3 months now. You can layer the mascara as much as you can and it won't clump!!! It just makes you eyelashes thicker and darker! It's absolutely amazing. But doesn't give you the "oomph" like Maybelline's lash stiletto but this is still an unbelieveably great mascara.
