Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara, Black: Precision detail brush. Tubing tech. Long wear. Clump & flake-free. Pro makeup artist go to that thickens, separate & lengthen lashes. Easy removal with water. - REVIEW

  • I bought this mascara to replace Thrive which flaked off and caused raccoon eyes. At first I wasn’t sure about this one as I didn’t like the wand and no lash extenders took a little getting used to. I started triple coating top lashes and double coating bottom lashes and that worked. I also replenished the mascara with every coating. I think this will make mascara to run out quicker. Too expensive for this hence 4 stars. Overall I like the mascara. No raccoon eyes and lasts a long time. Not sure I will buy again unless on sale.
  • This mascara does not run.I’ve been using it for a couple of years. All day everyday, it never run or given me raccoon eyes. It’s flakes off when you wash or use make up remover and it’s very easy to remove. It’s amazing and totally worth the money.
  • Goes on easily, cleanly in one shot.No lumps, no flakes.Lasts all day long, even when my eyes water. No primer needed either.
  • Read all the mascara reviews at neutral places, like the NY Times Wirecutter column. Worked my way through the affordable and luxury recommendations with my teen daughter, and this is…THE ONE. We prioritized curl, non-clumping, and non-running, and for sensitive eyes (example, Great Lash makes her eyes hot and tired feeling).Just buy this one. It does it all, perfectly, in a sleek heavy metal case with a fantastic brush. Love how buildable it is - I do one coat, my teen three or even four.I don’t love that I have to use makeup remover to get it off, but that’s it.
  • It’s time consuming to apply because I had to add layer after layer to get the desired thickness and length. Not worth the money
  • This was out of stock everywhere for awhile and I can see why that is. It is the only mascara I’ve ever used that does not leave little black flakes under my eyes by the end of the day. It makes my eyes look so beautiful with just one coat. The seller was very fast in getting it to me and it was packaged in its own special bag besides the box it comes in.
  • I've tried so many mascaras, & this is just superior. Excellent thin brush that captures every lash. Formula that coats beautifully without clumping. And absolutely no smudging after a 10 hour day! A little pricier,but worth every penny!
  • The first mascara i've used that does not leave racoon eyes on me. Goes on clean. Actually defines my eyelashes and I don't have racoon eyes after its been on for a while. Comes off clean with just water. This is my mascara for life!
  • A very natural looking and pretty mascara.Stays in place well, but is easy to remove with soap and water - it feels as if your lashes are safer from damage than with traditional waterproof mascara.
  • Love this as a tubular mascara. Goes on clump free and no flacking or smudging at all. Really happy with this. Just started using it. Hoping it will last for at least a month as they tend to dry out quickly. But perfect for a hot location.
  • I have tried many, many different mascaras ranging in price from inexpensive to expensive and hands down , this is the best. The wand is long and narrow and grabs your lashes from bottom to top,delivering just the right amount
  • If you don't know what tubing mascara is, read about it and just try it!I tried the Kevin Aucoin based on a recommendation from Allure magazine.It did not disappoint and actually exceeded my expectations.This mascara is easy to apply and provides a natural voluminous look to my lashes without that exaggerated smoky eye look.Best of all, because it is a tubing mascara, it doesn't run underneath my eyes during the day.I have oily skin and most mascara gives me raccoon eyes.Waterproof mascara is too hard to remove and the rubbing damages the delicate skin under the eyes.This mascara washes off easily in little "tubes" without tugging or pulling.
  • This is a great product if you have short, sparse eyelashes. It doesn't make them look like false eyelashes, but at least your eyelashes will now show up. Easy to apply and remove. I like it so much I have a subscription to it. Highly recommend.
  • I began using this product after searching for something that didn’t make me look like a raccoon at the end of the day (and I have oily skin). When used with a primer, this is the perfect product for lengthening since the small wand gets close to the lash line.
