I have loved L'oreal mascara for a long time. I use more than one type of mascara but this is my favorite.  One, because it comes in waterproof, which I must have because my eyes water alot for various reasons.  Two, because it doesn't make my eyelashes so stiff that they break.  I hate mascara that dries so stiff that your lashes get brittle and break off!  The price is pretty reasonable too which is also a good reason to buy it.   I tend to buy 2 or more of these when they are on sale and I have never had any of them dry out before I got around to using them.  I know you are supposed to change mascara every 3 months, but this lasts me longer than that, so I use it till it's gone! I have never had a problem with bacteria or infections because of that.  I would recommend this mascara to anyone who wants to wear a waterproof mascara.  Also, this removes easily with my favorite mascara remover, which is baby shampoo.  You won't be sorry if you try this wonderful mascara.

L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara is horrible! I bought it because my make up loving sister recommended it. However, I hate it. When you go to apply it, the mascara is goopy and leaves lots of clumps. to get it apply naturally, you have to scrape the wand against the side of the bottle which is rather inconvenient. If you scrape it first, then it looks okay. If you don't, you are left with large clumps and your eye lashes stuck together. The color is rich and the brush is nice and full but those are the only good things about this mascara. My biggest complaint is that it leaves smudges under my eyes after a couple of hours, sooner if it's hot. Now I don't touch my eyes a lot so it's not from my hands. If I take a nap, the smudges are even worse. This happens even if i brush extra powder under my eyes. Now since it's waterproof, it's pretty difficult to take off, especially those under eye smudges. You definitely have to use a separate make up remover to get it off or you'll end up pulling out some lashes. Overall a bad mascara that I'll never buy again!

    This mascara is so underrated! For it being a drugstore mascara it works better than some high end mascaras! I love it, it makes my lashes look full and lengthy! And no clumping! Definitely a beauty bag must!

        I got recommended to L'Oréal Mascera by a makeup group page on Facebook, tried it out and worked amazing! It's what I have been looking for. It applies easily gives your lashes a full length. Plus waterproof!

        The only thing I liked about this mascara was the length it gave my eyelashes besides that it suppose to be water proof and it still smears just few minutes after applying.

          This mascara is my number one all time favorite!! It's super affordable and works just as good as a high end mascara.
          It's very easy to apply and goes on even. My lashes always look fuller, thicker & longer after I use this stuff! I highly recommend this mascara to anyone!

          The worst mascara. It gets clumpy, dry, and no volume whatsoever! I will not be buying this again- ever! This was such a waste of my money!

          I've been using this mascara for over 7 years and i love it. I've tried other kinds but nothing works as well. This separates lashes volumizes them and makes your eyes look fabulous! It is waterproof so you need a makeup remover to take it off but other than that it is a fabulous product!

          Comments about L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara:

          I live near the beach so I am always looking for products that are waterproof. I can say that this product is a great waterproof mascara. It did not run at all after six hours at the beach in the water and sun. It applies easily on my eyelashes and provides long lasting coverage. The one negative thing that I did experience with this product is it left little clumps in my eyelashes later in the day that made removing the product a little frustrating. I had to use an eye makeup remover and my regular face wash together and required some scrubbing on my eyes that I do not like to do (wrinkles, uh). There was an unpleasant smell to the product which I could only smell immediately after applying.

          Performance
          Works good, even after hours at the beach. The product did make my eyelashes appear to be full of volume and longer.

          Ease of Application
          Easy to put on, pain in the behind to take off at the end of the day

          I purchased this mascara about 2 months ago and it still feels new and fresh. The formula is great for my straight, short lashes. It removes very easily after applying a good eye makeup remover and is very durable throughout the day. The mascara makes my lashes appear false and I have gotten many compliments on them. This product is my holy grail mascara and I would recommend this to anyone who wants good volume, long-lasting wear, and beautiful length.

          Comments about L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara:

          Let me introduce myself by saying that I have tried soooo much makeup in my lifetime. I was anxious to try Loreal's Voluminous due to praise of Youtube beauty gurus. The only thing that I really enjoy about this product is how black the "carbon black" shade is. My least favorite thing about this is the size of the opening. When you pull the wand out, most mascaras have a thin opening to catch excess goop, and this one does not. It goes on very clumpy for a few weeks until it starts to dry out, and I remedy this by wiping the wand on a tissue before I apply. Not only clumps, but smudging! Raccoon eyes galore. I recommend Tarte's Lights Camera Lashes. It's a little on the drier side but oh my heavens it is amazing.
