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 Some love it... some don't...
I think this mascara was worth a try. It added more volume than some other mascara's with the same "tube" lash technology. If you apply too much (I don't know if it's too much primer or mascara) it can become a clumpy mess. However some people are able to work with it and love it. For me, it seemed like when I use this mascara I am constantly picking at my lashes because any fuzz in the air it sticks to my lashes (and it is winter here, time for fuzzy hats, scarves and mittens... so it gets annoying!). I will not purchase again but I don't regret trying it - especially if you do not use as heavy mascara as I do and get it on sale. If you have used other types of extending "tube" mascara like blinc or others, I would give this a shot as you may really like it and save some money. However it's not for everyone.
Reviewed by 1161 customers 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.
Will be using only this from now on.
Rosalee from Utah
This is my new favorite mascara. I use to think that high priced branded products are the best ones, but not when it comes to mascaras. I've used expensive ones but I've never found one that works how I want it to work. One that doesn't smudge but will come off easily while I'm in the shower and one that gives volume and length. I'm ready glad I found this mascara. I will be using this from now on.
I have been married to this mascara since trying it
Shan from Miami
I suffer from mascara panda eyes unless I use this mascara. It doesn't come off in the traditional way, but with warm water and pressing which I love. I hsve pretty good eyelashes but this mascara makes them excellent.
Madi from Oregon
I used to have a die hard fav mascara for years but I borrowed this one from a friend and I've never looked back! Sometimes I sleep in my eye makeup after a night out and it always looks perfect the next day, not stubby or flaky like other mascaras.
Emma from Wisconsin
With so many great reviews, I thought this would be good to try. Here are the reasons for my stars: it comes off seamlessly with water when you wash your face at the end of the day, it doesn't transfer, and it doesn't flake. However, I didn't notice any lengthening whatsoever. I've tried using the primer so many different ways- using a little or a lot, brushing it through, leaving it tacky or waiting for it to completely dry- but it didn't do anything. I always curl my lashes perfectly before I use this, but as soon as I put it on, they fall and completely straighten back. The brush doesn't catch all of my lashes and the ones it does catch clump together horrendously so it makes it look like I have ~5 eyelashes per eye. Overall, it doesn't give any volume, doesn't hold the curl, and doesn't lengthen. Super super disappointed.
Pearl from Davisburg MI
Im not nor ever been a fan of mascara. I have had lash extensions for quite awhile until the pandemic. I researched several & decided on this. Its a good product I am just not a great applicator.
Tube it or lose it!
Alex in the aisle from Indianapolis
Tube mascara has changed my life. I will never not buy tube mascara again. Once water is applied, it peels off. I freaked out the first time it happened. No smearing or raccoon eyes when I wash my face! Only downfall is if it rains or pool/beach days. But I'm not a huge makeup so this isn't a prob.
I like this product particularly because the wand gives you a fuller look and the primer sits nicely and washes off just as well. Plus it's stupid affordable!
I have and will continue to purchase this! My go to!
QtDani1978 from Orlando, Florida
I recommend this to everyone who notices, and they always do!!
Morgan from Pooler
