I am so happy to blog about my all time favorite mascara! L’Oreal’s Voluminious Carbon black Mascara has been my go to mascara for over 4 years now! I have tried dozens of different high-end and drugstore mascara’s throughout my beauty days and I always come back to this one. It never fails to WOW me every time I apply it on my lashes!
This little gem makes lashes look so long and full of volume. There are other L’Oreal voluminious Mascaras, but I prefer the Carbon black one because in my opinion it makes lashes look incredibly dark. It retails for less than $6 dollars, and Honey, compared to the crazy $23 dollars High end Mascaras cost now a days… you will want to try this one! You can’t beat the crazy affordable price .
The tube is beautiful for a drugstore product, good job L’Oreal. It’s a pitch black tube with a a golden/silver cap. The brush has tightly packed bristles to give you a false lash look. I have browsed through Google and have read other people comment on how this mascara is smudgy or gives them a “panda” look, but seriously, when applied correctly from root to the tip, this will give you that false lashies look. I do recommend to slowly wiggle the wand when beginning from the root and sort of blink into the brush so ALL lashes are coated and you will have fabulous volume. A little FYI, on the bottom of the tubes there are different numbers such as N100 etc … I always look for N700… I find that this particular number gives the most volume to the lashes because I feel like the bristles are more tightly packed together. I added a visual so you guys can see what I’m talking about and not think I’m loosing my marbles talking all these crazy N numbers.
Honestly, every time I wear this I get asked “Are those your real lashes?” and I happily say yes! I literally have like 5 tubes of them …. just because I never ever want to run out and I have a strange fear of it being discontinued the way all good makeup is!! Luckily in all my beauty years it hasn’t. Make sure you guys try this mascara out!!

Hello and Welcome to My Beauty blogs! My name is Wendy and I created Madesimplebeauty because I am such a Makeup and beauty fan that I love searching the web for all things beauty and I know that sometimes its just plain complicated to find Reviews and honest opinions on makeup products. Therefore, I figured why not start my own blog and share my thoughts on cosmetics and make beauty simple. Not only am I a makeup geek (guilty!) I LOVE photography and enjoy capturing the essence of beauty of makeup! Made Simple Beauty blogs include my opinions and reviews on some of my favorite makeup lines such as Makeup Forever, Too faced, Nars, MAC, Lorac, Laura Mercier, Estee Lauder, Urban decay and SOO much more! (with an occasional post about my handbags, because ya gotta love handbags!!). Now I am not in any way a makeup artist of expert, I simply enjoy trying out products and writing about them. There are a bunch of products out on the market right now, and so much more makeup is being developed and sold. H0nestly, its amazing how a person can express themselves with the art and beauty of cosmetics. I have seen dozens and dozens of pictures on the web of the beautiful art that Makeup artists create simply using makeup and its inspiring. If you enjoy the beauty of ….well beauty (ha) then you are in the right place.
