L'oreal Double Extend Mascara ReviewFriday, September 23, 2011
A co-worker who knows how much I love make-up came in and brought me a brand new package of mascara. It was given to her but she wasn't going to use it and thought I would enjoy it -thanks Patti! I'm so lucky to have my friends and family. ^^
It was a little difficult to take a picture of just the product since the packaging is quite shiny and I kept getting some glare. The product claims to length your lashes to an "astonishing 80%". I took a photo, eye on the right wearing mascara and to the left, naked.
My lashes look longer and darker, not sure of the exact measurements obviously so whether or not it's to an "astonishing 80%" is beyond me. Regardless, I like the results. Both ends of the mascara have different duties. The step 1 side has your standard long brush with the main formula. It doesn't really clump and applying is easy as pie. I think clumping is a little in this season and you can achieve that if you add quite a few layers with this... though I don't think that will go down well with your lashes!
Step 1: Ultra nourishing base coat infused with Ceramide R and D-Panthenol protects and strengthens lashes creating the perfect base for tube application.
Step 2: Ultra-lengthening tube top coat sets to form lash-extending beauty tubes that visibly lengthen lashes to amazing new heights. Beauty tubes will not run, clump, flake or smudge and will stay on all-day.
Step 3: Beauty tubes remove easily with just warm water – no makeup remover or rubbing required!
