I've been a fan and user of L'Oreal Voluminous original for about 12 years now. My only problem with the original formula was that it dried out quickly and tended to flake, flake, flake. I am SUPER impressed with the Carbon Black! It is rich and luxurious on your lashes--makes them look plump, separated, and perfectly coated. (As with any thickening mascara, you have to scrap some of the extra back into the tube--which any makeup user worth their salt knows.) I also find that I can apply 2 coats without my lashes drying in between. I love, love, love this mascara! It is long wearing, looks fantastic, and doesn't irritate my sensitve eyes. I have eye allergies and tend to rub my eyes throughout the day--this mascara really holds up. My one makeup addiction is thickening mascara--I have tried them all, from $50 a tube to $5. This is by far the best thickening mascara I've come across.

I love the original voluminous in blackest black, so I thought this would be even better and more dramatic. To my disappointment, it was neither dramatic not better than the original.The applicator is covered in globs of mascara. It's so gunky and goopy that with even one swipe onto the lashes, it starts clumping. And don't even get me started on how it is on the lower lashes! Overall, I would not repurchase the carbon black version ever again. I think I'll stick with the original in blackest black. Nice try, L'Oreal, but you bombed with this one.

    Comments about L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara, Carbon Black 335, 1 ea:

    Love L'Oreal products but this mascara is not worthy of their name. I know that "older eyes". tend to tear up more but this mascara is smudged under my eyes within only an hour or two. It is very thick and difficult to apply to inside lashes. If you neglect to wash it off before bedtime, you wake up with a severe raccoon-eye which is difficult to remove. Adheres well to skin but not to lashes.

      Comments about L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara, Carbon Black 335, 1 ea:

      this is the best mascara i've ever tried. yes, when you first buy it, the formula is very wet (which i'm not a fan of). but give it a week or so to dry out and it's literally amazing. this is THE blackest mascara on the market, hands down. i have pretty normal eyelashes (normal length/thickness) and this mascara is so volumizing. it lengthens a ton too. if you go overboard, it can get clumpy, but if you learn to work with it you'll know when to stop. (and you REALLY have to pack it on to get clumpy in the first place). it's the same price as a regular drugstore mascara, and usually i can find it on sale for around $6 so it's even cheaper. this will make your lashes HUGE! the brush is standard, not too big and not too small. i wouldn't recommend using this on the lower lashes though, just because it could be a bit much for those small of lashes. definitely definitely buy this if you're on the fence about it, you won't regret it!

      Comments about L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara, Carbon Black 335, 1 ea:

      okay, so I just got this mascara about a week ago since I had read so many great reviews about it online & the first time I used it, it went on sooo nice & smooth & it looked amazing! the only thing is that it got onto my eyelid a little bit, afterward & I noticed this only due to the fact that I was wearing just eye shadow. idk if that was because of the way I applied it or what but I would not recommend this mascara for a natural look, if that's what you're going for, only because it does give so much volume & makes your lashes so dark. I usually wear liquid liner, in addition to my eye shadow, so that's not really a problem for me. like I said, it does give my lashes a lot of volume & it makes them longer & more noticeable. it does all of this, while separating your lashes, too & very well, at that. I do warn you, that the more you put on, the more you're at risk of your lashes clumping, as with any mascara. I usually put multiple coats of any brand of mascara on & this was no exception, however, you really don't need to put too much on. I'd say that 2 coats is enough to get the volume you bought this mascara for. this also lasts a very long time, too. I had it on today for about 9-10 hours, maybe longer, & it stayed put, with no problem. another good thing is that you can get it off very easily with just water, however, it takes longer. that's also the #1 reason why I'd never swim in it, either. get the waterproof if you plan on swimming with it on. the only bad thing I have to say about this is that it did flake a tiny bit. it only happened once & it wasn't like a lot, so it didn't really matter. this is definitely one of my top 10 mascaras & I'd definitely buy it again, therefore, I recommend it to anyone thinking about buying it. (I would like to try the original voluminous, though, because I think the formula for the carbon black voluminous is different from the original voluminous.)

        I got this because of all the great reviews on youtube. It goes on great but is really hard to remove. Maybe thats why people like it? It smudges under eyes and you have to use oil to take it off.... I'll use it up but will prob not get again.

          I've finally found a routine that works for me. I wear Rimmel's Lash Accelerator mascara and then one coat of this. This helps to separate every one of those long lashes and makes them almost multiply while holding curl and keeping my lashes soft. I love the carbon black color too. For nights out I pair this with the Telescopic lengthening in carbon black from L'Oreal to get a really dramatic look. I do have to use a comb because it can get a little clumpy and it does flake after a while, but overall it's fantastic!

            I've been using Voluminous mascaras for over 10 years now. I've tried others during that time but always come back to Voluminous. This carbon black is my most favorite of all time. It is easy to apply, doesn't clump on my lashes, and it's easy to remove. Also I've never had problems with this product flaking. This product makes my short, thin, blonde lashes look thick and dark. This is a great product. I definitely recommend.

                This mascara looks great and goes on smoothly BUT it quickly goes downhill from there. It smudges with no touching at all. I can apply mascara,get in my car and drive to work & by the time I am at my desk I have black smudges on my eyelids! Also has a tendency to flake. Very difficult to remove ALL the mascara from your lashes. I clean my face every night and most morning I wake up looking like a raccoon from mascara that is not removed fully. The tube went in the trash this evening. Back to Definicils!!

                I like how it does add volume and length. It looks great but after only a few hours it ends up under my eyes...not a cute look. If this stuff stays put on your lashes then it it'll a great mascara.
