    I love this stuff! Big thumbs up from me! It's the best I have tried so far from any brand (VERY lengthening). You have to make a point to remove the excess mascara so that it doesn't clump...(and it can take time because its such a dense/thick brush), but once you do, two coats is all you need (at the most!).

    My only con: It might be too thick because by mid day, the curl is gone from my lashes and they have flattened (the mascara lasts though). It is still the best I have tried though.

    Buy again? Over & over!! (but with a moral punch to the gut . . . read on)

    I've stuck mainly to DS for mascaras because of their short lifetimes and have tried so many of them out there. However, this one in Carbon Black is my HG for sure. One application over my lashes is all I need for a daytime, yet still glamorous, look.

    My only dislike about the product is that it is from L'Oreal, which is owned by Proctor & Gamble, a company well-known for their animal testing. As a vegetarian and animal-lover, I wish a cruelty-free DS brand like Revlon would come out with a comparable mascara so I can get glam eyes without the guilt! But I'll continue buying it for now, even with the moral burden for a "vain" purpose.

    Buy again: yes

    Pros-- cheap, thick formula (makes lashes thicker)
    Cons-- clumps fast, hard to find the color 'Black'

    Buy again? Perhaps...

    I like this for the most part, but I cannot use it on my bottom lashes at all. It'll smudge instantly. I know I could hold an index card underneath, or something like that, but I always like to do my makeup as fast as possible, and sometimes even in the car -- not while driving! Just sitting in there That's when I opt for L'Oreal Telescopic (my favorite!).

    The complaint I have about its packaging is that the wiper isn't too great... it seems too much product is still left on the brush when I pull it out. Pretty okay otherwise though.

    I only have the original. I'd like to try out Carbon Black.

    Re: L'Oreal: Voluminous (Mascara)

    This is currently on sale at Walgreens. $5 rather than $7.49. I'm thinking about trying this but can't decide between this and the L'oreal Teleoscopic Mascara. Comes in the silver tube.. I can't remember which has the small ball - but it isn't that one! Haha.

    Walgreens website lied. Unless it's an online promotion only. But I picked this one up yesterday and paid like $8 for it. Fail.

    This stuff takes too long to dry, gets very clumpy, and doesn't hold a curl very well or gives much volume. It just weighs my lashes down a lot. The only thing I liked about this is that it doesn't flake.

    I've tried everything out there over the years- VERY high end ones, gimmicky ones, you name it.

    This is my ALL TIME favorite. It just works for me.

    I do clump a bit but it's cause I should be using a comb. I don't see tons of length, but that's not really what I am going for- it's the full/thickness that I adore and makes me look like I have more lashes!
