Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara
Best Drugstore Mascara by far!!
This mascara is worth all the hype. It gives me tons of volume,length and keeps a curl! I can't rave enough about it!! Just for the record i do have pretty full long lashes without mascara so I can't say how this would be for people with short,sparse lashes....
Wet, clumpy, messy
I feel like everything that everyone raves about has the complete opposite effect on me. For me, it's too clumpy. The formula is too wet, so it gets all over my eyelid when I blink. It takes too long to dry. There's better drugstore mascaras, in my opinion. Didn't do much for me as far as volume and length, and I have pretty good lashes.
Best I've tried yet!
I love this mascara! This is stuff is definitely my HG mascara, it makes my lashes so long and gorgeous! It does definitely add a little bit of extra volume a well - I love the formula but the best thing is that it seems to really hold a curl after a curl my lashes and my lashes can be so straight. That and it is a true BLACK - as dark as can be.
Thee BEST mascara... handsdown!
This is my favorite all time mascara! the formula really lengthens lashes and the color is the blackest deepest black. I have naturally super long lashes but they are light. When I apply this mascara people ask me if I have false lashes!!!! It's a great product! I recommend this mascara to everyone I know. Note: the waterproof formula does have a different consistency (that I dont prefer). Try the regular formula unless you have a specific reason/purpose for the waterproof version.
AWESOME FULL LASHES!
I own the Waterproof Carbon Black and I got to say it stays on all day...no flakes..great black and FULL lashes & I get no clumps. When I want my lashes to look EXTRA big I apply a coat of this and I'm out the door. Will keep repurchasing, Awesome formula!
My long yet sparse lashes couldn't bear the formula!
I am a fan of loreal's million lashes in waterproof, but the formula in it dries up fast, so I thought I'd try this one NOT in waterproof. The formula is to wet for my lashes. Even curling with the mascara already on my lashes, my poor lashes limp down. I've also tried doing layers, waiting for each layer to semi dry. This helped a bit, I could tell the point where they got the name "building" mascara,because I could tell it looked a bit like I had some volume, BUT, I could've just done that by tightlining my upper lashline. It took me more than a few minutes to apply three to four layers one to get some volume on there, and that was just a waste of time. The brush is too huge for my eye shape, I have mascara smudges on my lids, thank goodness I didn't plan to use it when I had makeup on yet. When it's completely dry it doesn't flake, but it does smudge. Has anyone tried the waterproof version yet? I only have a couple of non waterproof ones, because I like to use them for my tutorials, since it's easy to take off. Please let me know! I'm never going back to regular mascaras again!
This is by far my favorite mascara. I have tried many many many mascaras and this is by far my favorite. I love that it doesn't make your eyelashes super hard. It will give you a dramatic look so if you don't really like thick dark lashes this is not it. I don't know how this one compares to the waterproof one...if you have tried both please let me know. Thanks.
2 face opinion :)
I decided to try this mascara because i wanted to try something new other than my usual Lash Blast. It's definitely very black and makes my lashes super long and thick, but i hate the fact that even though i purchased the smudge-proof/waterproof version it smudges under my eyes sometimes and ruins my concealer. But when it comes to the point of removing it, it's almost impossible so i need to find a new eyemakeup remover to remove it. Other than that it really works well. :)
This is a fantastic mascara for volume!! I feel that this mascara is at its prime when it has been opened for a couple weeks and it a little less watery. The one downside to this mascara is that I have to use a lengthening/separating type mascara with it because without it I find that the mascara can be a little clumpy, and my lashes aren't quite as separated as I want them to be. Despite this fact, the volume that I get from this mascara totally makes up for the little bit of clumpyness!!!
really loved this one. water proof and really makes my lashes thicker and longer. Perfect if you want all eyes attention. i had a hard time looking for this in my place but luckily i found one last year. amazing!
