The voluminous mascara promises dramatic results. It promises with one coat it will give you voluminous lashes. The mascara did go on smoothly at first but after a few uses, I got clumps. The mascara also took a bit longer to dry than other mascaras because I always ended up with smudges. I also noticed that this tube of mascara dried out quicker than my other brands. I don't feel like it was worth it for me.
