“L’Oréal Paris introduces Double Extension, their first conditioning, extending mascara which respects your lashes & makes them look up to 60% longer! L’Oréal Paris Double Extension Mascara is a 2 step Mascara which is composed of A conditioning white base coat with Ceramide R which contains natural fibres that act like extensions to visibly lengthen the appearance of your lashes A lengthening Mascara with a patented brush which evenly distributes intense colour from root to tip, with virtually no clumping”
You need to replace your mascara every three months, don’t ya know. A perfect excuse, I thought, to try a new mascara. I usually use Bourjois Clubbing Mascara or They’re Real by Benefit. I find them both excellent. They make my lashes look great and there’s no flaking or smudging, no matter what I get up to. Why would I change mascaras when I am completely satisfied with what I already have? Boredom? Curiosity? Also because they take a bit of elbow grease to remove and I’m a bit worried about my eyelashes, poor eyelashes!
I bought Double Extension because I had heard that it is the bees knees from another blogger. (The reason I buy lots of things these days!). It’s one of those Mascaras with two wands and two tubes joined together. One contains a white primer which is meant to be conditioning, the other is a black mascara. The idea of it being conditioning appealed to me in my current eyelash empathetic state.
L’Oreal also do Double Extension Waterproof, Beauty Tubes and Renewal Serum. I didn’t know which to get, it was confusing. What are “beauty tubes”?
The wands look pretty standard to me, but apparently they’re patented, L’Oreal boasts. So the White base coat goes on, it feels a bit like a moisturising cream. It’s not extremely white, which is good.
As for staying power, and this is pivotal to mascara success, I would say middling. I did get some gray fallout by the end of the day. I hate that, it makes me look tired and dirty. Which of course I am, but I don’t want my face to display my tired dirtiness
It could well be that I need the waterproof Double Extension for real lastability. But I didn’t buy that one, doh!
L’Oreal Double Extension in Extra Black gets 5/10 from me, I shall not repurchase
