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.

This has been my favorite mascara for years. I add in the Ulta Lash separator after the white lengthening & my lashes look amazing. It doesn't flake & if you cry, it doesn't run or smudge. It comes off easily with just water. I've tried others but there's just no beating this!
My go to mascara
Jenn from FL
I'm loyal to this mascara, been using it for years. The base coat lengthens your lashes and the top coat goes on smoothly. Also, the "tube" feature makes it easy to remove.
Jenny from Washington DC
I've spent countless money on mascara, trying to find one that looks natural and does not come off. I'm pretty active (nanny) and need something that can hold up but look natural. I've used this mascara for 8 years at least, and I always stock up in fear of it being discontinued.
To the ladies who had some trouble taking it off here are a few tips: soak cotton pad in remover and press against eyes (try to lay your lashes on top of pad before you press) for about 20 seconds. Then gently wipe upward, then downward. Repeat. Then wash your face. You have to be gentle though!!
DO NOT BUY THIS EYELASHES COME OUT IN CLUMPS
Anna from New York
This product looked good on but when I took it off with my make up remover (gently) my eyelashes came out and huge chunks I was so upset. Do not buy this product.
LucentFox from Midlothian,VA
The one star is only warranted because the first step primer is promising. It does actually seem to coat and extend the lashes pretty evenly. However, the actual mascara was not so impressive. It really didn't add much length or volume. Worst of all it is difficult to remove. I've lost a number of eyelashes trying to remove this mascara.
The best for watery eyes
AmySFL from Florida
My eyes water constantly. I've been using this mascara for years and always come back to it. It is water resistant, meaning it won't dissolve if your eyes water and doesn't smear, smudge or run until you take it off. (And unlike actual waterproof mascara, it isn't hard to remove). When you wash your face, the "tubes" come off easily like little fake eyelashes. I can also build it up and make my lashes look longer and thicker. I hate that I spent 3x as much on an upscale brand that was supposed to do the same thing only better. My lashes looked thin and short, and every time my eyes watered, the "tubes" disintegrated and mascara smeared across my face. Went right back and bought another tube of L'Oréal. I swear this is the only brand that makes this kind of formula.
Wish I could love it
Genii from Texas
I loved the way this mascara made my lashes look but after a few hours of wear it would make my eyes burn and super itchy I guess an allergic reaction or something which saddens me because it has been the only mascara to make my lashes look fuller and longer :'(
Tiff from Ohio
I've been using this product for years now. I'm not really into false lashes, but this mascara really gives you that extra UMFF(lol) to your lashes if your not into false lashes!
Looks great but hard to remove
Jen from LA
I get so many compliments when I wear this. My biggest issue is the work it takes to remove it. Balms are best but I have to agitate my lashes so much that I end up losing lashes. That is no bueno.
Not great for volume but a decent tubing mascara
AJ from MPLS, MN
No volume with this one, ladies. If you have naturally thick eyelashes and you're looking for a tubing mascara with a primer that's decent, then go for it. But, if you need volume, hard pass on this one, ladies.
BEST MASCARA ON THE MARKET
Goobergurl from Bay Area, CA
I LOVE this mascara. It takes time to use because of the pre mascara (white side) you need to put on first. It makes my eyes look like I have fake eyelashes. This is waterproof yet easy to take off.
Disapointed and Terrified. Never using again.
Anna Kate from Colorado
This product held all day very nicely and I loved it! However, when I removed the product, it took out over half of my lashes. Maybe I just had a reaction to it, or something, but it was absolutely horrifying watching my lashes float down the sink.
Best mascara on the planet!
Kayla from Bryan, TX
Have been using this mascara for several years and am always disappointed when i try something new. It's buildable, doesn't smudge throughout the day, and removes so easily with warm water and doesn't leave black all over your face.
Not terrible but not for me
Manal from Ct
I was looking for volume and lift and it just didn't work for me
Valley mama from Los Angeles, ca
I loved this mascara at first, no smudges and made my lashes so long, at first. Didn't make them thick or full. I began to notice my lashes getting shorter and shorter. Well I now know that this mascara broke off my natures lashes. I'm going to repair them with castor oil but it's pain.
Eyelashes Fell Out
Busymom from New Orleans
I have been using this mascara for about 6 months. The first 3-4 months were great. Then, more recently I've noticed that my lashes became brittle, and they literally started to break off. My lashes also looked less full and not healthy at all. I'm not sure if it's the primer, or the actual mascara causing this. I also change tubes every 2-3 months, to make sure my mascara doesn't get gross
My mascara soulmate
Fperez from East coast
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! Everything about it is a 5/5. Definitely lengthens and separates my lashes. Best thing about it is how it comes off. No raccoon eyes or having to go back and wipe under your eyes after washing your face. It comes off in little strings one you've had your face in the water for a minute. I close my eyes, put my finger on my lashes and open my eyes. It comes right off
Mmmk from Ny
Pls never discontinue
Super long lashes

I love that the primer immediately thickens and lemgthens the lashes and the mascara makes them even longer

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
