Review: L'oreal Carbon Black Voluminous Mascara
I have tried this mascara before and was never impressed. I thought it was too goopy and too much product was transferred from the brush to my lashes resulting in clumpy lashes. But I decided to give it another try after hearing so much about it and I LOVE it! I was using YSL Faux Cils before and in my opinion they are pretty similar. Faux Cils has a drier formula, which I prefer, but not as plump of a brush. When you compare the prices the L'oreal one obviously wins. I paid $5 for mine on sale at Walgreens but it usually runs around $8. YSL Faux Cils is around $30 give or take a few bucks. The lasting power of the Carbon Black mascara is impressive. It hold a curl very nicely and doesn't rub off below my eyes. I recommend this product! Definitely one of the better drug store mascaras out there.
