I have used this on and off for years, and it used to be great- volume, length, definition, it was an all in one. But, I really think it has gone downhill in the last couple of years. I thought maybe I had gotten an old tube when I used it last year, but with a recent purchase it was the same. I have lashes of average thickness and length, they are not sparse all. With a name like "Voluminous", I guess it means you should get more volume as opposed to getting extra length, so I could see if it only gave me lots of volume and not so great on length. The problem is, I get neither volume nor length with this mascara. It looks like I just put a little color on. The formula seems dry and it flaked within a couple of hours, something it never used to do. The brush is the style I like, and the price of $5-6 is good, but that is about it. I miss the old Voluminous. Many people seem to have good results with it, and I wish I still did too. I like have a go-to product, it just makes life easier. Mascara is one of those go-to products that is getting harder and harder for me to find.
