Volume? Not really. This mascara did more lengthening for my lashes than thickening, and even then it wasn't that big of a difference from my naked lashes. This mascara did have some staying power, but not much. I didn't have a problem with smudging or running, so it is waterproof, but it started to flake off after about 6 hours of wear. I'm very disappointed in this product; any Maybelline mascara I buy in the future it'll be the one in the pink bottle with the green cap (<-- which has been great for me time and time again).

I've tried this in both the normal and curled wands in the waterproof versions. It's pretty good mascara. I find that this is more of a lengthening/separating mascara rather than a volumising one. It doesn't flake, smudge and is waterproof. The black is an adequate black but not enough if you have dark lashes already - I suppose I'm after a va va voom black. It's a good everyday mascara and as it lengthens and separates quite well, I'd imagine it might work better for someone with decent lashes already. As mine are quite sparse, I don't think I'll be repurchasing as it doesn't add enough oomph. I quite like the runny consistency of it though as it lasts and lasts. I know you're meant to replace mascara every few months but I find the this mascara is pretty much in the same condition now as when I bought it almost a year ago.

I don't think the curled wand version added any discernible lift to my lashes.

I think this is a pretty good mascara. It does give my lashes volume without clumps. I love the brush. Makes it easy to have thick, but seperated lashes. Even with several coats, still looks and feels natural.***** UPDATE 3/7/07 *****CoverGirl Lash Exact & Volume Exact are my new HG mascaras. continued >>

I was soo disappointed with this mascara. After 3 or 4 sweeps it barely looked like I had anything on. This didn't even give half the results I got from 1 sweep of Maxfactor's Masterpiece. This isn't even worth 5 and I can't believe it is from the same make as XXL beacuse that is fantastic for full on bold lashes.

LOVE this mascara - makes my lashes thick and luscious but it DOES NOT lengthen (which i'm not looking for), definitely worth trying. EDIT: Sticking to L'Oreal Voluminous - my absolute HG forever!!!! In fact anything by Voluminous. Sorry Maybelline.

This is an ok mascara, but really, all the turbo and 5x the lashes mess is definitely not true. Minimal thickening and lengthening, I might as well buy a WnW mascara. I was disappointed. I'm going to finish the tube and then return to Loreal Voluminous.
