Perfect for achieving a more youthful, doe (not panda) eyed appearance, Kevyn Aucoin’s ‘The Volume Mascara’ really makes eyes pop. The wet, glossy texture makes for seamless application – allowing you to coat each lash evenly without the dreaded clumps, and layer ‘til your heart’s content (and lashes look fantastic). It’s also super hard-wearing, so no more smudges, smears or tear-tracks – even during the weepiest of weepies (this one’s passed ‘The Notebook’ test)! The packaging is beautifully slim-line – the weighted tube is not much thicker than an eye pencil –and the signature deep red colour exudes elegance. Sleek, chic and hard-working, this make up bag must-have is the ultimate weapon of mass distraction…

How to use
Use Kevyn Aucoin's eyelash curlers, then apply The Mascara to elongate and amplify. Apply a second coat for added drama, then go about your day. This easily wipes off with warm water and a cloth - no remover needed (but it will work if you prefer).
Let me prelude by saying this: this a wonderful mascara for either a natural every day look (just do one or two coats) or to build up your lashes. And I love the tiny spoolie on the wand, makes it great for coating your bottom lashes as well. However...because this is a tubing mascara, little bits tend to flake off - you won't see anything on your face (not that kind of flaking!), but if wear hard contacts like me you know how harsh it can be when any teeny tiny bit of anything gets in your eyes...they start watering like crazy, it hurts and I'm eventually forced to remove my contacts and switch to glasses for the rest of the day. But if don't wear hard contacts, it's great!!! I will still keep it and wear it on days I only have my glasses on...
It does not smudge, it doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes, it's very easy to remove (with warm water), it can be applied as natural as you wish or slightly dramatic (no full drama and doll eyelashes though, Perfection.
One of the best mascaras I have ever tried, definitely worth the price. Applies easily without the dreaded clumps, which makes lashes look naturally long and dark and holds for a really long time.
Fantastic mascara but not quite true to name
I love this mascara and am onto my fourth or fifth tube. It is the only mascara I have ever used which doesn't flake (even other so called 'tubing' mascaras like EL Double Wear flake on me). The lasting power is great, and it goes on well, nice and dark, and glossy. It comes off beautifully. The packaging is really nice. It is long lasting and unlike other mascaras, I am able to use up all of the product before it starts to dry out or clump. The only thing that I would note is that it is NOT a high volume mascara. I would say it is pretty natural, even after a couple of coats.
Good but could be better
I actually really like a lot about this product. It comes off super easily and doesn't feel horrible on your eyelashes, it has never smudged for me which is amazing because so many do. However the only draw back is that it is definitely a day time only mascara and even then sometimes I go over it with a different mascara. It just doesn't give my eyelashes much volume or wow factor. Also, I believe its already started drying out and I haven't had it for that long. Another thing is that for the price you don't get a lot of product. However despite all these draw backs I still use and reach for it hoping I can make it work better cause I really do love the way it feels and the fact that it doesn't smudge.
It's OK as a mascara, avoiding clumping, but the problem is getting it off. It leaves littles specks of black all round your eyes when you remove it, which is a pain.
Truly the best tubing mascara I've tried. I have oily eyelids and wear glasses, so almost all of mascaras are smudging on my upper lids and sometimes flaking under my eyes. So the only choice for my sensitive eyes are tubing mascaras (as I can't stand the removing of any waterproof ones). My previous love is Sensai 38C volumising, this one - is much better, it lasts longer as it does not start to dry out (as Sensai does). The only tiny minus - it's not volumizing, it gives you wonderful natural look. But it's the look I'm looking for in my mascara so I'm more then happy with the Kevyn Aucoin volume mascara. Best for me.
This item isn't half bad. Look lovely and it wears lovely. Separates your lashes beautifully. The volume that obvious, I've gotten compliments everytime I wear this mascara. One big downside is it did dry up on me after 3 months. This item doesn't flakes off or smudge anywhere. The brush is precise and small, so you can get into those awkward to reach areas. It's easy to take off at the end of the day as it is a tubing mascara. So that's a bonus. No eyes rubbing (actually, a bit but not too much at all!).
My friends call me a 'mascara expert' as I've tried all high end mascaras. The closest effect to this one is Diorshow mascara. However, unlike the Dior one Kevin Aucoin mascara doesn't smudge at all. My lashes look thick, curly and long! And it doesn't smudge at all neither on lower lashes nor on my brow bone. It's truly the best.
Great for humid weather
I've tried off the counter mascaras, cult brands, etc. this is the ONLY mascara that does not smudge even in humid weather. Its easy to remove, just wash with water and the mascara drops off from my lashes.
Best mascara - EVER!
I have long thing lashes and always have problems with clumps. But this mascara makes my lashes look thick, longer and supersexy. And it's perfect for lover lashes too.
