I’ve been talking about L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara ever since this blog started. I have tried so many types of mascara – and have had several favorites. 

Mascara is one of my all-time favorite cosmetics – and I have pretty high standards. I have even tried the “They’re Real” mascara by Benefit that has taken the world by storm, and I still think L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara wins!  The first day I bought L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black, I remember thinking, “my eyes can look like that?!?”

Here are my thoughts about this mascara – and some tips.  Believe me, this mascara is so pigmented, you are going to want to read my thoughts about application.


Reasons I love L’Oreal Voluminous

  1. It is drug-store cheap ($5.84 on Amazon).
  2. The Carbon Black is the deepest blackest black I have ever found.
  3. It never clumps.
  4. It lengthens my lashes like no-one’s business.
  5. It separates my lashes without any effort – but doesn’t do that weird spider-y thing that makes my lashes look fake…
  6. It is so pigmented – that a little goes a long way.

Tips for Using L’Oreal Voluminous

  1. After you dip the wand in tube, scrape everything off before you apply!  Your wand will still be so full of mascara, but you won’t overload your eyelashes.
  2. Don’t double-dip.  One dip (and scraping it all off) still is enough for both eyes.
  3. Use coconut oil to remove.  This stuff is black and won’t come off with face wash – so I love coconut oil on a cotton ball to get it all off.
