Most Helpful Positive Review the ultimate smudge proof mascara!
I have struggled with dark, racoon-eyed smudges with just about every mascara on the market...from the pink and green drug store classic to expensive department store brands. I used Blinc for a while and LOVED the tubes but hated the expensive cost and having to pay for shipping on top. That's when I found L'Oréal Double Extend ! Actually better than Blinc as it comes with it's own volume building primer.
This gives me full, beautiful lashes that last all day with zero smudges! I work in retail as a manager and I'm always on the run but have to look great. This mascara is my secret weapon! I will be crushed if they ever dare take it off the market. : (
When applying, use the primer first (of course) and then immediately apply the mascara. Quickly apply 1 to 2 coats and before it dries, comb any clumps with a separate lash comb . (I swear by the one by Twezerman!) Don't overwork it . That's the key. Then let dry.
It lasts a while too, but if you notice a little stickiness then its time to replace the mascara.. And removal is a dream! warm water and gentle soap pulls the tubes off gently. ( I hate the pull and sting of some waterproof mascara )
At first it looks like your lashes are coming off but relax! It's just the tubes coming off and leaving NO residue behind. Fabulous!
Been using it for over 3 years and tho I may be tempted to try new mascaras , I ALWAYS come back to Double Extend !!
Most Helpful Critical Review So Disappointed
I think I got a faulty product. I've used this mascara faithfully for two years, and I bought another tube (I don't know how many I've been through) at Target yesterday. I was so excited to open it. I applied the base coat without problems. The mascara though.... I unscrewed and the first thing I noticed was that the screw was loose. Second, the mascara wand was not even coated. Third, the part that was coated looked like it was covered in tar and rolled around a dog's shedded fur. I'm so disappointed that I was sold this terrible product.

I love that the primer immediately thickens and lemgthens the lashes and the mascara makes them even longer
LadyonaMission from Texas
I love this mascara. I have tried many brands in all price ranges. This is the very best.
I love this product.

It's a great product
Worst mascara ever

It doesn't work

Have used this for years.
Best Mascara Ever!
Kelly from St. Louis, MO
This has been my go-to mascara for years! I find it is the only mascara that doesn't flake off, smear or give me racoon eyes.....even compared to the more expensive waterproof varieties.
Precious from Sacramento, CA
I have been using this for at least 10 years and it is the BEST!!! People ask me all the time if I have eyelash extensions and I just say nope and then I tell them all about this fantastic product
Autumnal1979 from ABQ, NM
I love this mascara and recommended it to my daughter as well and she is picky about mascara. I love how it lengthens without giving a chunky spider effect. usually all I need is one coat of the white side and the one coat of the black side, but two coats is good too and it builds ok without making too many chunks. It is super easy to remove with just warm water, and yet, does not smudge under the eyes or collect in the corners. I have oily lids, so all my life I'd been having to use waterproof which still smudges or a waterproofing overcoat (slightly better but a pain to remove). Doesn't irritate my eyes and I have watery eyes sometimes. The only thing is, once in awhile I get buildup of the mascara around the tube, but its easy to pick up the chunk and toss it, so in my opinion thats actually a plus because it doesn't glue the cap to the bottle then. I would seriously only wear this brand if they just came out with purple, blue, green, etc.
It made my lashes soo much longer!
melody :) from Puerto Rico
I already have good lashes and this product just helped them look longer and pretty. Do note that this mascara doesnt give you volume, it gives you length, so dont expect them to look full, For me its perfect for everyday looks! LOVE IT!
Instant lash extensions!
Lindsay M. from Fallston, MD
I just tried this and oh my word does it work! My lashes were visibly longer and fuller. It also washes off easily. This ticked all the boxes. I love it!
No more runny mascara but not the boldest
Asian Cali Girl from California
**Pros: FINALLY NO SMUDGING! This is the number one reason I purchased this after reading about this mascara. Other mascaras, including waterproof ones, would often melt on my face on hot days and would leave me looking like a raccoon at the end the day. Even just my body heat inside an air conditioned room would often melt my nascara. This one lasted all day at the office or on outings without any smudges or running, even on my bottom lashes. Great for long days without needing reapplication. You can apply a few layers of this and you won't get that chunky spider legs eyelash look. It comes off easily with makeup remover and/or warm water.
**Cons: It doesn't do much for lash volume. It does okay for length after a few layers, but if you're looking for that va-va-voom poppin' bold mascara, this is not for you. Works great for office/casual days, or for enhanced natural looks, but when I'm glamming up, I bypass this mascara completely and go for false lashes or another bolder mascara. I have pretty thin eyelashes so for a bolder look, I reach for something else.
Depends on what you're looking for but I would definitely recommend this if mascara smudge has been an issue for you as it's been for me.
Hard to remove but Amazing results from use
Curly Sue from Brandon Ms
Looks amazing makes them super long and pretty BUT I use micellar water and it's way too hard to remove for no reason. And when it does come off it looks like my lashes are be falling out but they're not thankfully .
removing is so easy
K from California
This mascara is seriously the easiest to remove. At first you might think your lashes are falling out but it's the mascara haha you don't even need makeup remover.
However, the mascara itself doesn't do anything for my lashes.
Best mascara, hands down
Naked without mascara from SC
LOVE this mascara. I can not recommend it enough!
This stuff made my lashes fall out.
Ava from Los Angeles, CA
I could not decide if the primer or the mascara was making me have that weird effect of losing lashes, it irritated my eyes but i am a contact lens wearer, it also wasnt even that great with length or volume and was only average at best
not voluminous at all!
girl with blue hair from pa
I was really excited to try this mascara out and hope that it would be a dupe for a mainly mascara that I used to get which was volumizing and lengthening, and also had the double-ended wand. and while this mascara is a lovely mascara for lengthening, I would say my lashes look very thin and are not "blackest black". after using those products my lashes look pretty normal, and that's after one coat of white and two coats of black. wouldn't buy again, wouldn't recommend to a friend.
Perfect for sensitive eyes
Erin from CA
Stays all day, doesn't smudge, easy to remove when you're ready.
possibly the worlds greatest
Lauri T from Louisville, KY
ok, where to begin... for one I blew so much money on so many high end mascaras....and so many flake so bad and felt crusty on my lashes. My fave high end is Tarte lights, camera, action, but this mascara by far is superior to it! Its STAYS, and yet wipes off so easily when you're ready to remove. I don't understand the reviews about flaking, as it NEVER flakes on me. which is a major issue for me and a deal breaker with mascara. Maybe people have gotten old/expired product??? This doesn't even flake during sleep. Which makes it perfect for a "sleep over" lol any way I hope they never stop making this, I will never buy anything else as long as they do!
Not the fullest lashes, but it doesn't smear
X from Mid Atlantic
I bought this product because it is tubing mascara. I bought it to use on my lower lashes because they always smear with regular mascara. This works. Plus, it is easy (albeit a little messy) to remove.
I have used this before and will continue to use again.
Milz from North Carolina
My lashes are sensitive. I had tried other expensive mascara. None of the work as well as the L'Oréal. The best is the white conditioner you apply before applying the mascara. I won't change again.
I love this
teressakerinn from nj
I have tried over 30 mascaras from different brands that are high end and low end. This is my top five with another Revlon one on my list. Let me tell you its wonderful and underrated. The primer side lengthens with two coats, then the fibers side creates volume throughout each lash. Excellent
I've used this product for years!
Leslie from Oklahoma
I've used this product for years because all the other mascaras run under my eyes. This defines lashes and makes them look longer. I just wish they looked thicker. This is seriously an underrated mascara.
My go-to mascara
ElvisLoveChild from Silver Spring, MD
This has been my go-to mascara for years. It is increasingly difficult to find in drugstores, so I was happy to find it here. I just wish they still made it in the brownish-black.
Lily from Atlanta, GA
Excellent Mascara, hands down!!! Without a doubt it lengthens & thickens the lash. I have been using it for years & hope it never is discontinued as I have not used another that can compare. Make-up remover doesn't remove it too well - best with plain soap & water.
Addicted.... No other mascara compares.
CP from CO
Long wear and easy to remove. Best mascara on the market.
