ETA: I keep editing this review as I use up my tube of this. I'm starting to see why so many people like this mascara. The brush - awkward as I find it - is The AntiClump. As long as you don't want a truly volumized, dramatic look, you can get a really good "natural" long-lasting look with this mascara. Holds curl, no smudges, et. (In fact, the brush is so comb-y and the formula so dry that it "curls" my lashes without a curler - some might find that useful.) I just really want to apply about 3 more coats, and that doesn't work with this mascara.
ORIG: I hate the new spiky plastic brush -- the old Voluminous was much better. Good staying power/waterproofiness, no clumps or flakes, but it's just impossible to apply enough to get that thick look that it should have. As a result it's very finicky -- there's a stage at which it looks ok (not the volumizing look I want, but at least it doesn't look terrible) and you have to stop applying at exactly the right moment or BOOM! Tarantula eyes. Gross.

This stuff is amazing. It holds a curl like nothing I've ever used, and doesn't clump at all. The only downside is that it's a nightmare to remove. I've yet to figure out how to get it off without three rounds of makeup remove + face wash, so it's not an everyday thing for me. If I ever figure that out, I'll never wear anything else.

My friend recommended me this mascara about 10 months ago. I love love love love it. And after using it for a long time, not as much. My eyelashes are kinda on the short side, but they're not non existent. They're still a decent length, and they stick straight out, like most Asian eyelashes.
I found that this mascara held my curl well. It really lengthened my eyelashes.It separates my eyelashes really well also. Affordable. I like the shiny packaging lol. I love shiny things ;)
Not a lot of volume. I have oily lids and just all around my eyes, and at the end of the school day, the mascara starts to bleed. And no, it's not my eyeliner or anything because on the days when the only makeup I wear is this mascara, I still look like a raccoon. Not good. It has an odd smell, but I'm not all that bothered by it. I also found the packaging to be kinda bulky.

My very first WP mascara was Maybelline's Lashblast. It was great & all, but it was so tough to remove!
L'Oreal's Voluminous Million Lashes, on the other hand, was easy to remove with MUFE's Sens'Eyes remover. That's a big thumbs up for me, since it rains a lot where I live and I needed a WP mascara that was easily removable.
This mascara certainly defines & lengthen your lashes. If you're looking for volume, there are other mascaras that can do better. Though, you can build up the coats and eventually you will achieve that thickness.
The formula is dry (holds your curl) and was easy to apply. No clumps, no flakes. Just as L'Oreal promised.
The only CON that I have with this mascara is its brush. Yes, it's good at separating lashes, but I have a very hard time trying to reach my lower lashes since the brush is so thick. I might need to use the business card trick for this.
> Overall, you should try out this mascara if you're looking for a product that defines, lengthens, and some mediocre volume to your lashes.

Definitely defined my lashes, but I had to apply about four coats before I felt like they had enough volume (I usually do anywhere from 2-4 coats so it isn't an unheard of number for me). Definitely waterproof. I didn't notice it smudging or flaking. It will be a go-to for me.

I absolutely love this mascara! I l use waterproof mascara year round, simply because it holds the curl and I don't have any trouble removing it when using my Neutrogena duo phase eye makeup remover. I have absolutely no problems with smudgy mascara (i never have with regular mascara either) and i have oily/combination skin.
This holds the curl sooooo well! I'm asian and i curl my eyelashes everyday and practically abuse them. Very few eyelashes fall out when i use this mascara.
The 2nd best thing is how perfecting it is. I find with a lot of "volumizing" mascaras all you get is clump. Some people say clump is good and i agree but it only looks nice in pictures. In person, it just looks like a bad, messy job. For example, Maybelline the falsies. I find it makes my eyelashes look good, but clumpy and not smooth on the eyelashes. This is exactly opposite! It makes your eyelashes thicker but in my opinion it is a lot better for definition and length.
If you want a great, long-lasting waterproof mascara to hold the curl whether you're swimming in the summer or not, i would suggest this! It's a great everyday mascara and it lengthens and defines really well. I don't think they advertised this the best way because it doesn't "millionize" your eyelashes but it certainly makes them look amazing.
I don't like the original voluminous waterproof or not and don't know what the hype about that is. However i love this mascara and the packaging makes me feel like a princess (: Definitely repurchasing!

This is my HG, go to, no fuss mascara, and I can't count how many tubes I've gone through in the past couple of years. No, this mascara will not give you that "falsies" look that most women seem to be after, but it will enhance what you've got. The thing I love most about this mascara is not only does it lengthen and provide a decent amount of volume, but it seems to be the only mascara that actually curls my lashes without having to use a curler. It doesn't flake off, it is easy to remove at the end of the day, and I can use a good three coats without getting even a sign of clumping. I will continue to buy this mascara as long as it is on the market.

I really like this mascara, it lengthens my lashes and adds volume, but not too much. Thoughout the day it doesn't make my eyelashes feel brittle like their gonna break, or clumpy or dried out. And it doesn't smudge either. I got mine for $8 CAD, which is very good for its price because I have had much crapper mascaras for $9. The packaging is very loud, and quite tacky, but then again it never leaves my makeup drawer. I've had fatter and longer bottles, and way more fatter brushes. As far as the waterproofing, it is waterproof (go figure) so obviously you need a good eye makeup remover that removes waterproof makeup. Overall, its an amazing drugstore mascara, my favorite so far, and I defenatly recommend it.

I have tried just about every mascara out there from drugstore to the high end products, but this mascara has to be one of my favorites. I had low expectations when I bought this mascara, but boy was I wrong. Everyone complains that its difficult to remove, but thats kinda the point since its waterproof, so I didn't care that it was a tad bit of trouble to take off. It doesn't flake and it really makes my lashes look longer and fuller, and it lasted all day through wind, heat, and rain. My only complaint is the packaging is way too bulky. Overall I would purchase this again.

New HG!!! Gives me curved, long and voluminous lashes, but in a different way.
I was quite sad when L'Oreal discontinued my favourite mascaras (Voluminous and Double extension waterproof). One day, I decided to give this new mascara a try, although I didn't like the brush and I suspected that it wouldn't give me voluminous lashes (hate the fotoshopped adds with Eva Longorias fake lashes).
Boy, was I wrong. This works in a different way than usual because the brush coats every single (!) lash with mascara, thickens, curves, elongates them and fans them out. I have never seen anything like it before. It doesn't smudge and it is the FIRST mascara that does look fantastic on my lower lashes, and gives me the sixties look. So if you're after the Elaine Robinson 60s dolleye look, go and get this mascara.
There is just one thing I would like to mention: I don't recommend this mascara if you don't have many lashes because it relies on the effect of each lash being separated and coated. In that case, I would chose a classic volumising mascara like Max Factors 2000 calories.
