I love this stuff- I have tried others (Tarte, Benefit, Covergirl, Urban Decay, Maybelline, Jane Iredale), because I'm afraid I'm missing something, but in the end, they can't hold a candle to L'Oreal Voluminous. (except for the great Max Factor Stretch and Separate Waterproof Mascara, which is almost impossible to find here in the US)
I used this L'Oreal Voluminous a while ago, and then had a misguided dalliance with a Maybelline mascara, (which of course...they then discontinued-) so I came back to this- and had forgotten how wonderful it is! Why did I ever leave you, L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof? I get so many compliments on my eyelashes when I use you- from both guys (my husband AND a random flirty dude at the supermarket) (whoo-whoo!), and gals (my doctor, my hairdresser, and *ahem* a girl who works for a store dedicated to selling upscale cosmetics) (!) just to name a few.
Now you KNOW that the ladies are much more critical than the gentlemen... so getting compliments from women is really sayin' somethin'!
As for wear, I don't find that it smudges on me, even though I have very oily skin (and eyelids- yuck) But I do use an eye primer (Too Faced or UD), and put a little of it under my bottom lashes, so maybe that's the reason. My lashes are defined, enhanced, lush, and waterproof. (and if you're trying to decide between this and Lash Out, LO smudges like crazy on me...)

For removal, I use a pure jojoba oil remover, and have never had any problems- it comes off super easily.

So, rock on L'Oreal; and please don't ever stop making this superior product- in fact, add a few fun colors to the Voluminous waterproof line, so we can have a selection! (Maybe in addition to those fun colors, also add a light brown, an auburn and a blonde, so we can use Voluminous on our eyebrows!)

LOVE THIS!

I'm always looking for a good waterproof mascara because I swim often and I occasionally react to pollen with watery eyes. While I LOVE the color and texture of this mascara, unfortunately it smears EVERYWHERE. Not waterproof at all. It doesn't even stay put under dry circumstances!

      Comments about L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Volume Building Mascara, Black, 1 ea:

      I met Sam Fine at a makeup show and asked what mascara he recommends and he said this one. That was five years ago and it's still my fav. It doesn't flake, perfectly separates lashes so I don't even need a comb, the formula is so fluid that my lashes don't clump together and I have to run the brush over and over until they separate, the waterproof formula does not run yet is easy to remove with basic eye makeup remover.
      My other favorites are loreal in the fat gold tube because it makes my wimpy lashes look huge and fake which I love! But it flakes so much that I'd only use it if I was going to be photographed. So I never use it ;)
      My other fav is Cover Girl in the orange tube because it is as great as this Loreal except its impossible to remove. I could only get it off with expensive eye makeup remover so I realized it makes more sense to spend $2 more on Loreal than waste $15 more on remover.
      Recently I bought a maybelline (magenta tube for volume) the formula is so thick that I have to fuss so much with the wand and then a metal comb to separate my lashes or else they clump like spikes. I hate wasting $$ but it's going in the trash as soon as my drugstore.com order arrives.
      So that's why I think this is the most perfect mascara and I'll never switch.

        Comments about L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Waterproof Volume Building Mascara, Black, 1 ea:

        When I use waterproof mascara, I want it to stay on until I take it off. Unfortunately this one doesn't. It's a good, long wearing mascara. It gives my lashes volume but if I forget I am wearing makeup and rub my eyes, it starts to flake off. It doesn't have the staying power I want from a waterproof mascara. It is also difficult to remove.

              I use waterproof mascara all the time because after I curl my eyelashes, when I use regular formula mascara, my eyelashes fall. I like this mascara because it volumizes, lengthens, separates and keeps my lashes up and pretty all day and it's not too difficult to remove (with eye makeup remover).

                I have been using L'Oreal Voluminous mascara for years as my go-to mascara. The last time I was at the store I decided to try the waterproof mascara instead of the regular mascara. I never thought that the regular mascara had a problem when it came in contact with water, but I decided to try the waterproof anyway. The waterproof mascara is the same as the regular when you're wearing it, but it has become a huge pain to remove. When I remove it with makeup-removal wipes it turns into little black specks, and I spend extra time searching my face for little specks. I also have to work hard to remove it from my eyelashes, which has resulted in pulling some of my eyelashes out. I would recommend you get the regular kind if available.

                      I love this stuff. I keep trying other brands thinking I might find something magically better, but I keep coming back. If you remove excess product from the brush on the side of the cannister first, spread your eyelashes as you apply (i.e., don't just slap it on), and brush out any clumps immediately (I like using a sample mascara brush from any make-up counter), this mascara allows for great definition. Especially after two coats, the voume and length it adds are respectable. I find that this is one of the few brands (out of 20+ I've tried over the years) that doesn't straighten my lashes after I've curled them--it's like hairspray for your lashes. Even the non-waterproof version of this product doesn't do that. Of course, because it's waterproof, it's harder to remove. I can get 90% off with make-up remover (right now, I'm using Neutrogena, but I'm not in love with it), and the next morning I wipe the remainder off from under my eyes with a towel (no problems with the residue coming out in the wash).
