L’Oreal Voluminous- My All Time Favorite Mascara

L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black | CaitlinCosmetologist

L’Oreal Voluminous is hands down my favorite mascara.

I have tried other kinds/brands but I always go back to it.  I prefer mascara that is made to add volume rather than length because my eyelashes are long, naturally. Believe it or not, it can be a challenge to find a mascara that truly builds volume and does not leave my lashes looking long and skinny. This is why I love my Voluminous mascara- it seems to do the trick without getting clumpy or flaking!

Why L’Oreal Voluminous is my favorite mascara:

  • There are several varieties within the Voluminous line now, but my tried and true favorite, or holy grail if you will, is the Carbon Black.  I love my eyelashes to be as dark as possible which is why I use the carbon black instead of a regular black. They sell both a regular and waterproof version- I use the regular.
  • The original Miss Manga is another version in the Voluminous line that I liked when I tried it.  Miss Manga creates big eyes with extra volume and intensity.  I like this version because my eyes are my favorite facial feature and it helps make them pop.

  • Women ask about my lashes frequently. “Are those YOUR lashes.” Or “Do you use one of those fiber mascaras?”.  It’s fun to share my secret-that these are my real lashes and that the mascara I use is a reasonable price. Plus, compliments are great right?  (My lashes are actually longer that some falsies I tried in the past.)
  • L’Oreal Voluminous mascara is very affordable (around $8) and is available at just about any drugstore.  I usually purchase mine at Target or Ulta during a BOGO 50% sale.

Have you tried either of these mascaras?  What do you think?
