Last fall, after experiencing an allergic reaction and lash loss from a drug store mascara, I began the search for a new mascara. After reading the online reviews, I decided to purchase Loreal's Voluminous Waterproof Mascara in Black Brown. Having been a faithful follower of a particular department store brand, I was skeptical any other mascara would come close. Pleasantly, I discovered I was wrong. Voluminous colors and conditions your lashes at the same time. The Voluminous Waterproof Mascara is definitely waterproof! It stays on until you take it off. The only negative comment I have about the waterproof version is there is a slight scent to the mascara. Within a week of using this mascara, I saw new lash growth appearing where my lashes had fallen out. I have been using Voluminous for the past three months and love it! Recently, I purchased a tube of the department store brand to compare with Voluminous. In the end, Voluminous was the winner hands down!

This is not a waterproof mascara, do not waste your money. By mid day I have black mascara all under my eyes.

I have been buying this mascara as it is reasonable in both quality and price and i can get it in brown/black and waterproof. Doesn't clump too much.

I teach swim lessons a do not like teaching without mascara. I have tried so many waterproof mascara's that did not survive while in the water. This has been the ONLY mascara that holds up! However, it dries out ridiculously fast. I feel like I have to purchase a new one every two weeks. And I am very careful not to put the wand in and out a bunch of times so I do not push more air into the tube.

I figured a waterproof mascara would be a wise purchase with summer here as well as that I work out just about everyday. Unfortunately I came to find that not only does this mascara run, it some how runs even more so than my non-waterproof mascara that I had been using (miss manga). Despite the fact that this mascara ends up all over my eyelids and under eye area, I cannot seem to remove it with any sort of substance-makeup remover, oil, etc. On top of all of this, I feel as though it does not do anything at all for my eyelashes; it doesn't lengthen, or thicken them, however I will say, it holds a curl. Really disappointed in the product.

I bought the Hydrofuge Voluminous Waterproof Mascara a few weeks ago and I was very disappointed! It left smudges on my skin when applied it on the lower eye lashes! I'm French and I work for a high end French retail store in NYC and I always have to look BCBG . I was quiet annoyed when it happened the first time! I at first thought it was coming from the eye pencil but then I tried the Mascara without eye pencil and got the same result! I do not recommend this product!!!

When I couldn't find my longtime favorite, L'Oreal Lash Out, in my local stores, I tried this mascara. It was a waste of money. It looked good when first applied, but it smudged under my eyes under indoor, dry conditions. It was also nearly impossible to remove, even with L'Oreal's waterproof eye make-up remover! I would wake up with black under my eyes the next morning even after removing all I could with the remover the night before. I threw this mascara away. Wish I'd gotten my money back.

I have used L'Oreal waterproof mascara for the past 20 years because it's the only brand that's truly waterproof. This mascara goes on silky smooth and clump-free but not only is it NOT waterproof, it is nowhere near the standards of L'Oreal waterproof. Within an hour of putting it on, I had black smudges under my eyes. I had to take a second (and third and fourth) look at the tube to make sure I really bought the waterproof version. Do not buy this if you really need a waterproof mascara.

I really don't understand why there are so many negative reviews. This stuff is incredible!!!!! I saw a few of the people I follow on Youtube mention it so I finally tried it out a few months ago. This mascara makes my lashes super full and long. It looks like I am wearing false eyelashes. The first time I ever wore it to work a co-worker actually noticed how long my lashes looked. If you haven't tried this out it is worth a shot!! I honestly can't say enough about this product!

Smudges in Humidity

I was hoping for a waterproof mascara that would hold up to heat and humidity. This may not be the best choice for that. I get smudges at the outer corners within three hours. And I find that my upper and lower lashes stick together when wearing this mascara, even though I don't wear mascara on my lower lashes. Yet even though it smudges pretty early in the day, it is pretty impossible to remove, even with oil based remover. If you live in a dry climate, give it a try.

This is the best and only mascara I use. I used to use Diorshow Mascara, but Loreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara in Carbon Black is the best. It has the best brush to make lashes look luscious and full. Even though I use waterproof, it does not break my lashes and it is also very easy to remove with makeup remover. Lashes do not look clumpy-they look very natural and healthy. Works in only one coat, but you can coat more than once for a more dramatic look for night.

I generally don't buy cosmetics not given a high rating by Beautypedia, but I really like this mascara. It's not clumpy at all and it's so waterproof, I can be a little vain at the pool and even being pulled behind a boat. One drawback is that I keep leaving it in a hot/cold car (by accident) and it gets so thick and clumpy I have to buy more. Another is that it comes in way too much packaging--like all L'Oreal mascaras.

I bought this mascara thinking it would be better for the beach since it was supposed to be waterproof. I was wrong. This formula did not add volume to my eyelashes. Even worse, I had smudges under my eyes, like a raccoon. It seemed that the mascara never fully dried. I used it when I travelled to a tropical country during my vacation and it DID NOT work at all. Major disappointment. I will return it back to the store.

I usually use original waterproof voluminous mascara, but was looking for something that goes on a little thicker from the beginning of use. Although the coverage and fullness is good, to claim that this is waterproof is ridiculous. By the middle of the day I would have black smudges and flaking all over my eyes below my eyebrow. Also, if I would throw water on my face I would look like a racoon after I dried my face.

If I could give this a -5, I would. I love Loreal products and was excited about trying this "waterproof" mascara. It goes on great and makes my lashes look beautiful. But within 45 minutes I look like I am going goth. It's embarrassing. Surely waterproof would not run so bad. Did I get a bad batch? But I cannot risk spending more money on another Loreal mascara and end up with the same quality. It's a real shame.

I have used Voluminous Waterproof Mascara before and loved it. A week or so ago I purchased Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof. I had racoon eyes in just a few hours (My eyes are dry and I tend to blink alot). When I got home I double checked the tube to make sure I didn't inadvertently purchase the wrong mascara. Nope, it's says waterproof. It's not waterproof, smudge-proof or anything proof. Very disappointed.

This is probably one of the worst mascara's that I have ever used. I accidentally bought the waterproof and have only been using it for about 3 weeks and the brush is already clumped up. I would not recommend it nor buy it again. It was a complete waste of money!!

This is the best mascara I have ever tried. I went from the cheapest mascara to the most expensive, and nothing really caught my eye. After trying this particular kind, I was amazed. My lashes have amazing volume and it looks like I have false eye lashes on. I no longer need to change mascara brands, which makes me happy.

I hate it this mascara! I bought it because of all the hype. It's very wet for a waterproof mascara. I only buy waterproof because its the only formula that keeps my poker straight Asian lashes curled all day. With this one after I curled my lashes & applied this on, it weighed it down straight and its very clumpy too. I hate it, I will be taking this back to get my money back.
