Mascara Review: L'Oreal Double Extend Lash Extension

Doing Drugstore: L'Oréal Double Extend Lash Extension Effect Mascara

If you haven't tried tube mascaras yet, you'll be glad to know that drugstore versions are rolling out. One of the first is L'Oréal Double Extend Lash Extension Effect Mascara ($9.79), a two-step mascara with "beauty tube technology."

Tube mascaras are great for making lashes look longer, and because the formulas come off with warm water, they're much easier to remove. I'm a fan of Mirenesse Secret Weapon, but will L'Oréal's version perform as well? For the verdict (with pictures),


Voila, my naked peeper.

The first step is to apply a "nourishing base coat." It went on with a few clumps and looked like lash lice. Fortunately, it's just a temporary look. Moving on...

The second step involves the "ultra-lengthening tube top coat," which adds length and color. Don't know if I'd say it's "ultra-lengthening," but it's not bad. However, it's not as good as Lash Blast from Cover Girl, which lengthens and volumizes for less money and one fewer step.

Overall, this isn't a bad mascara — but it's not a great one, either. Pick it up if there's a two-for-one deal, but otherwise, don't make a special trip.
