Honest reviews


horrible, floppy wand

The applicator brush for this mascara is awful. The head is okay, but right after the head, the wand narrows so you have this pivot point between the head and the rest of the applicator wand. Ugh. The formula also clumps. With a regular wand, I would brush through the clumps to try and get better coverage, but with this wand, I don’t want to do that because it is so easy to accidentally flick it and send spatters of mascara all over my face.Will not repurchase and would not recommend.

Needs a second mascara, but wow

On the advice of a beauty blogger I bought this along with the other voluminous mascara, also in carbon black. Alone this mascara was underwhelming. It was OK, but nothing that totally blew me away. But coupled with the other voluminous mascara, WOW! Combined I looked like I had false lashes on (in the good way). I will continue buying them as a pair as long as I can because this makes even the high end expensive mascaras look wimpy.

Great Mascara

This is the best mascara I’ve used and I’ve tried plenty. It goes on smoothly, without clumping, thickens my lashes, and comes off using a wet washcloth, but never smears or flakes when I’m wearing it. Love it.

Monica Grand Forks, ND


I really LOVE this mascara! It makes my lashes long, and thick. It is quite black in the carbon shade, which I love! Two coats and you are good to go! I also like that the formula is more wet than many mascara’s I have used , I like a more glossy look. It dries fast and does no clump or smudge. What a great drugstore mascara!

Grrrr… another clump-tastic mascara!

Ok, maybe it doesn’t clump on someone else… but for my incredibly average lashes (medium thickness, medium length) this clumped.CLUMP CLUMP CLUMP… funny word, isn’t it? If clumping made a sound, it might sound like the word :)Anyway, my experience with this mascara is that it does clump. No, it is not horrible and awful and embarrassing to wear it. It takes some effort to correct the clumping with a brush (not the applicator) but with adding the TINIEST smudge (another funny word) of Vaseline on my lashes before applying the mascara makes it not terribly hard to brush out the clumps. It adds 2 extra steps.Adding 2 extra steps isn’t for everyone. It is for me because I am cheap and not wasteful. I can’t throw out a new container of makeup and go buy another one without guilt.Anyway, ladies and others, you could try this… but according to the other reviews, it sounds like it’s better for thick lashes. Do you have thick lashes?

Not bad for $7

Here’s the thing…I am a total snob. Self-proclaimed. Especially when it comes to beauty products. I buy all the expensive crap from Sephora, Clinique, and Estee Lauder and generally look down my nose at all the drugstore brands. However, I have major issues with mascara. I’ve tried about 137 different kinds, and although there are quite a few high-end brands that work great, each tube lasts a maximum of a few weeks before all the product starts clumping together and becoming virtually unusable. I’m sick of shelling out at least $25 per month for mascara. If I’m going to throw each tube away after only a few weeks, I need to slash the expense. So, I am climbing off my high-horse and trying some of the cheaper drugstore brands.L’Oreal Voluminous Million is the first cheap mascara I’ve tried. I chose this because the wand reminded me of the one that comes with Benefit’s They’re Real mascara, which is one of the better products I’ve tried. I am super impressed at how this product is holding up. I’ve been using it for almost a week now, and my lashes look sweeeeeeet! Rich black color, lots of volume, and also a decent amount of length. The mascara doesn’t clump on the wand or flake off at the end of the day. (In fact, it’s one of the trickier mascaras to remove, even when using a makeup remover.) Best of all, this stuff is less than seven bucks a tube! You really can’t beat that.The only think I’m not all that fond of is the applicator wand itself, which ironically is what drew me to this product in the first place. It reminds me of a small, rubbery caterpillar, and it’s a little shorter than I’d like it to be. It’s also super flexible, which is great when applying mascara, but I worry how well the tip will hold up after a few weeks. Also, some of my lashes stick together a bit if I apply more than one coat. It’s not nearly as bad as the clumping issues I’ve had with other mascaras, but it’s still worth mentioning.I am still on my quest to find the perfect cheap mascara, but Voluminous Million isn’t half bad, especially for less than seven dollars! It’s worth trying.

These are fake. Not the real ones. I’ve been using loreal million lashes for few years now and as soon as I got these I knew they were fake. They don’t look exactly the same and there is a weird smell when I first opened it. Very disappointed cause I bought few not only one

Deidra Glenwood, WA


I love this stuff. It lengthens your lashes to a crazy extent and gives them great volume at the same time. A nice little bonus: it makes them thick, too! It looks like I’m wearing false eyelashes when I put it on. The only problem is that it does flake off a tiny bit. I just check it when I go to the bathroom and it’s never really a problem.

Beatriz Stratton, ME

Good but not that much

Is good and the bristles do help with coating the lashes, but there are better mascaras out there by Lóreal, like Telescopic

Deidra Tome, NM

Really does multiply lashes

One of my favorite mascaras. I love the pigmentation and finish on this. The consistency is amazing. Keep in mind that its best for volume definitely not length. It also clumps after two coats. However it is still such an amazing mascara. I definitely recommend it!

Joni Nyack, NY

Worth all of the hype

I had been reading about this mascara non-stop in every women’s magazine so I finally decided to buy it because I honestly needed a replacement for my Voluminous Carbon black which, although good stuff, it dried up rather quickly in the tube but took forever to dry on my lashes. Well, this mascara certainly lives up to all of the hype! My lashes went from somewhat long and thin to fantastically seperated, full, fluffy fringe and it took no time at all to dry. I work 11 hour shifts and 10 hours in this stuff hasn’t smudged, flaked or ran. Plus, my lashes are still soft and not hard and cakey like some heavier mascaras are. I recommend it to everyone.

Becky Fort Benning, GA

Best mascara ever!!!

I love this mascara! It doesn’t clump and doesn’t flake. You don’t get the weird five huge eyelashes thing. It’s fantastic!

Bonnie Wernersville, PA

As Advertised

Millions of lashes. This stuff is awesome. Inexpensive and well worth it. The brush helps to hit all of the tips of my lashes. I already have long lashes, but the tips are blondish. This makes them look fabulous.

Lourdes Pardeeville, WI

Love this!

Makes my lashes unbelievably long! Whenever I wear this my daughter asks me if I’m wearing false lashes. I say " just my Million lashes mascara"!

Ashlee Glad Valley, SD

This is the only mascara that is consistently great!

I cant even tell you how many mascaras I’ve tried over the years… and still try out news ones every 6 months or so. But I keep coming back to this one as my favorite! without it, I look like I have no eyelashes but once I put two thin coats, my eyelashes are back and long looking! this also comes off easily in the shower if you dont feel like taking it off manually. They also have a waterproof one that definitely stays on.. maybe too good! I prefer an easy on, easy off mascara and this one fits the bill.

Ina Dingmans Ferry, PA


This product is great. My eyelashes don’t clump together and the mascara goes on evenly. It also lasts all day without any issues and if you have to rub your eye, it doesn’t smear of come off, after it’s dry of course, and when the day finally ends, it comes off easy. It also lasts a very long time. I really love this mascara and will be buying some more very soon!

I like it, I think it holds a curl a little better…

I purchased this mascara as well as the Maybelline Stiletto Lash mascara because I wanted something new and we are approaching the summer months so I do not want to appear like a made-up doll sweating away in the hot sun. This mascara reminds me a lot of the Revlon PhotoReady mascara which I absolutely adore. I think this mascara may hold the curl of the lashes a little better than the other two mascaras. However, this mascara has the issue of leaving my lashes a little sticky and I do not reach for it as much. I think the formula is great because I am not a fan of thick formulas. I don’t know if I would repurchase it again because I am in love with the Revlon PhotoReady mascara. Maybe?

Flakes terribly

With so many good reviews I was surprised I had such a bad experience. This mascara leaves much to be desired. It seems fine while you’re applying it and provides adequate fullness and length to your lashes, however, the biggest issue with this product is that it flakes terribly. Just a few hours after applying I had a face full of black flakes. I was surprised as I have never had a mascara flake anywhere near this badly. I thought maybe I received an old tube. I threw it away and waited for the next auto shipped tube to arrive. I opened the new tube, it seemed fresh, went on fine and I had the exact same issue; a face full of black flakes. Needless to say, I cancelled the auto ship immediately.

Awesome brush

The brush (which is what I look for in mascara) is awesome. It picks up every little lash while not coating too much. I just have to use one coat and my lashes look insane.

Whitney Autaugaville, AL

Favorite drugstore mascara

I like long, separated lashes and that is what I get when I use this. This is the closest thing I’ve found to They’re Real by Benefit. I will keep buying this.

Inez North Richland Hills, TX

Looks great

This mascara makes my eyelashes look very nice. It has good length but doesn’t do much for volumne, contrary to the name of the product, just FYI. I mostly wanted longer lashes, though, so I’m happy. It does not clump at all when you apply it! I can put on two coats with no issues. The only reason it’s less than 5 stars is that it does flake off a bit by the end of the day.

L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

I love this. It is perfect. It does not clump and it does not smell. When it comes out of the tube, neither the tip nor the brushes are caked with mascara. With only one application, my lashes are beautiful. With two, they are “wow” – long, not fake looking, full, and very noticeable.I do not wear mascara every day. The only type of make up that I wear every work day is eyeliner, and then I only line the bottom of my eye because I don’t have “any” bottom lashes. I do not use the mascara on my bottom, but maybe I should try it because I notice that there is a tip on this mascara.

Liliana Paynesville, WV

My Favorite mascara!

Love this mascara as it really does add volume to your lashes! I have been using this for a couple years now and I try others just to compare and I come back to this as the price is right and it’s really good for seeing your lashes! I’m a blonde (naturally) and this works great! I’m not one of those with super lashes but this makes mine very visible. I also like that it doesn’t take super human work to take it off but at the same time it stays on!

Marguerite Weatherford, OK

Very good mascara

No need to pay big bucks for pricey department store brands; this is a really nice mascara reasonably priced. The brush does not clump; and using daily it will last a month before it gets skimpy. Although you can easily get it at a drug store, I use this staple of my beauty routine as a ‘filler’ to bump my Amazon order up to the amount to get free shipping!

Good for Short, Best for Long Lashes

My sister has short lashes and I have long lashes. We both are happy with our results! For my sister it really made her lashes show, as before I would NEVER notice when she wore mascara. For me, it literally made my lashes more defined by each lash. It separated each lash perfectly, lifted them up, and made them incredibly long. I use this when I go to an event, mostly because it makes my lashes really pop, almost as if I have false lashes on which can be a negative for those who want a more natural look. I do wear this everyday, but just this only because I’m an avid fan of natural looking make-up. My boyfriend loves it on me. Last night (the reason behind why I decided to write a review) we were on the couch watching TV and I looked at him and he couldn’t stop looking at my eyes. He said my lashes were incredibly long–in a sexy way? I’m not sure what he means by that, but guys buy this! My only downfall with this product, is that it does smug badly if water touches it or if you wipe your eyes a little with your finger. In that case, buy the waterproof version.

Lela Clayton Lake, ME

I love this mascara

I love applying mascara. This is one of my favorite ones. After two coats my eye lashes are thick and voluminous. It doesn’t flake or run on my eyes.

Mona Rogers, NM

Really good mascara

Very nice indeed. I recently purchased this item for a bit more than asked here but still found it worth it. What I like about this mascara as how it seperates the lashes with a nice length. Or course, if you try to use too much it’s going to clump but I’ve yet to find any(even high end products)that don’t. So great product and would definitely buy it again.

Agnes East Windsor Hill, CT

best mascara

I purchased this mascara after reading all the reviews. I have been on a search for a mascara that doesnt clump up..this is a perfect one! I love it and i carry it everwhere! I wish i bought an eyelash curler though! lol 🙂

Greta Saint Johns, MI

Great mascara

This mascara made my eyelashes long and lovely. It worked really nice, but for $7 is a little too much for me. If your looking for something that does a great job as this, but for cheaper go with the Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara which sells for around $3 and some change.

Jennie Wofford Heights, CA


I use this religiously, it is wonderful, it extends my eyelashes and separates them. The trick is to apply many many many brush strokes. Only dip the applicator once or twice but keep combing your lashes to apply it evenly and lengthen them. I get one shipped to my house every 6 weeks for healthy lashes.
