Well, this is a surprising product for me because I really do not like the regular Voluminous mascara. The regular one did not do much of anything for my lashes. But I do like this Carbon Black. The brush is the kind I prefer, a brush with bristles rather than the plastic kind. It is very black, which always makes my eyes stand out more. I did not notice any flaking and no eye irritation at all. My lashes are of average length and volume on their own and this mascara really did enhance my natural lashes as well as adding volume and length and a bit of curl. The only issue I had with this was a very small amount of smudging by the end of the day. As a waterproof mascara, I expected that it would not do that. That was the only con. I think I could use this daily without that being a big problem, since it otherwise made my lashes look so good. It removes well with the Neutrogena or Equate Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover.Mascara has been one of those products I have had a hard time with for a while, because it seems like every time I found something that worked, it would disappear from the stores. (How I miss the long lost LeGrand Curl form L'oreal!). I just do not have the budget to pay so much for high end products, so I usually stick with drugstore. And mascara has to be replaced so often, I just cannot justify spending twenty dollars a tube. This one was about $6 regular price, and I got it on sale for $3, so it was worth that! I'm glad I gave this a try even though I was not impressed with regular Voluminous. Who knows why it works better, but it does and now my lashes look really good again!

I can't understand the bad reviews either! I have been using this for over 10 years. Super black, thick lashes that aren't sticky or flaky. Lasts through a long work day and then some. I'd say it's about 75% waterproof - I've worn it swimming in the ocean and it can smudge a little under the eye. It also is the only mascara that I've tried that holds the curl of my lashes for as long as I'm wearing it - I have to use a curler on my lashes as they have no curl. A bit difficult to remove with regular make-up remover but I use Vaseline and a cotton pad and it comes off super easily. My absolute go-to fav!!!!!

I don't understand the bad reviews. I've been wearing this since they started making it. I sweat like crazy on a normal work day and it doesn't budge. I wipe the wand off lightly on tissue before applying and comb out my lashes with a eyelash comb afterwards, I repeat this like 4 times an eye because my lashes are blonde. End result= long thick dark plush lashes that last all day and night with NO smudges

Good mascara but smudges like crazy if you're at the beach, runs so much if you accidentally wear in the shower or pool. Absolutely do not purchase for waterproof capabilities. Decent mascara otherwise.

I LOVE THIS MASCARA. I'm one for a lot of volume in my mascara more than length because I feel volume works better for my lashes and makes my eyes look bigger. The packaging is black and gold and looks very luxurious and high end. I also like the traditional brush because I find traditional brushes work much better for my lashes than rubber/plastic bristles do.The formula is smooth and black, and my lashes are volumized and separated well. The only issue is I get a bit of smudging but I think that's just the way my body works with makeup so I'm not too worried about that. I can easily wipe my under eye no problem.I also don't understand the bad reviews! If you're someone who likes more volume than length and traditional wands, then I recommend this mascara! HOLY GRAIL!

I am so disappointed by this mascara. It SMUDGES like crazy within minutes after I applied it even though it is a waterproof formula. Never have I hated a mascara so much. DO NOT BUY.

I'm surprised by the low ratings for this mascara! I bought this on a whim when it was on sale for $5.99, and I have not looked back. My left eyelid was swollen around the inner corner so I was trying to go easy on the eye makeup for a while, but when I needed something to perk up my look for classes, this worked wonderfully. I picked up the non-waterproof version a few years ago and hated it because it transferred all over my lower lashline, and I spent a few months using it as an eyeliner for how black it was (all I did was dip an eyeliner brush into the wand and apply it to my eyelid).The wand is one of my favourites, aside from the fact that the tip will always have a huge chunk of product that comes out with the wand unless you wipe it off. It's just fluffy enough to coat all my lashes well but not too big that it hits my eyelid whenever I apply mascara.The formula is amazing! I love the way it doesn't clump up in big chunks on my lashes but adds the right amount of volume at the same time, and it lengthens beautifully. The mascara itself doesn't dry to a crunchy feel on my lashes but it isn't completely soft either, but I don't have too many issues with that. It holds a curl very well, and I can go the entire day without looking in a mirror and still have the curl in place at the end of the night with no smudging! It doesn't flake either, which I love. I go in with two coats to start, and if I'm feeling adventurous, I'll do 3 or 4 and it'll still look just as good.I've had a lot of issues finding a good waterproof mascara that holds a curl without flaking everywhere and clumping up when I go in with more than two coats, so this was a godsend. Would definitely repurchase when it goes on sale!

This mascara....yikes! Like many reviewers have mentioned, this product will give you major raccoon eyes despite being a "waterproof" mascara! I've used the regular voluminous in waterproof and it works great, so if you were to pick from this or the other, definitely pick the other. This formula also feels a lot more wet than the regular.

I never hated a mascara so much! It applied well, I enjoyed to overall look. It made my eyelashes longer, and full. However, within an hour I would get HORRIBLE smudging under my eyes. I have never had this problem before with any mascara. I tried using eyelid primer under my eye and it only helped delay the smudging by a few hours. Not sure what the hype is I would not recommend.

I am so disappointed by this, I had to review. First of all, I bought this because Thataylaa on YouTube swore by this stuff! I have naturally long eyelashes, so pretty much any mascara I use will be fine. Let me start off with the formula type, it is a very wet, thick formula so it's very hard to get a desired coat. When applying to the lashes, it feels very thin, and smudges just terrible! If it didn't take more than 5 coats to thicken up my lashes, then I wouldn't mind it. By far the worst L'Oreal mascara!
