Review: L'Oreal Double Extend Lash Extension Mascara

Soooo...I've been hearing some things about this mascara and was itching to try it out because I'm a huge L'Oreal mascara fan. Until - yeah, read on:

Product: 2.5/5
Packaging: 2.5/5
The promise: 80% longer lashes
The price: $8-9USD
Overall: 3/5
Would Purchase Again?: HELL NO! Well... maybe... lol.

The Pros: This mascara does lengthen decently well. And there aren't any visible clumps if used correctly. The wands are decent aswell, the bristles are seperated which help with the lengthening of lashes, imo. The "fiber-wig-tub-thingy" aka the white side, is probably the best I've tried in extending the lashes.

The Cons: I think this product has been overly hyped from whoever hyped it up, haha. It reminds me a hell of a lot like Maybeline's XXL mascara, but the L'Oreal does beat it a bit in the lengthening department. My gripe is the volume of this - there is none whatsoever. Personally, I think a mascara that just lengthens but doesn't give any type of volume is crap because not unless you have thick lashes to begin with, it really doesn't give a significant difference to your appearance. They made my lashes look puney... long, puney twigs! The actual package is sorta big and clunky too. I didn't like the feel of it at all. Oh, and since it's "tube" mascara - I guess another form of fiber wig - you have to use warm water to remove it. Not makeup remover :[ For a girl who likes to take all my makeup off with wipes, that is utter crap. Haha.

Overall: I don't think anyone should really waste their money on this unless all you want out of a mascara is lengthening. The only thing I would probably use is the fiber-whatever but stick with my L'Oreal HIP mascara to add volume. If you liked Maybelline's XXL mascara, you'll like this. But if you don't - skip this product.

Photo Swatch:



That photo looks convincing, haha. But it still doesn't change my overall opinion on this product. Anyone got different results or other mascara recommendations? Lemme know.
