    Finally! "Tubing" formula at Drugstore prices!

    I have long loved "Kiss Me" mascara, which was the only one I'd known about that actually forms little tubes around your lashes. It makes it virtually impossible for it to smudge or flake, so you NEVER end up with raccoon eyes. However, the "Kiss Me" kind really lacked in length and volume, so I stopped spending the cash for lack of raccoon eyes alone. However, L'Oreal has now...read more got the same tubing formula to actually pump up my lashes, and YES, it lengthens them too! I wasn't sure if it'd stand up to Department Store versions, but it does. I've found that if I put the base coat on smoothly, and follow right away with the regular black mascara, I get great results. And a warm soaked cottonball really does take it off. And it WON'T come off until then! Go ahead and rub your eyes all you want during the day, no raccoon eyes! — 5 years, 10 months ago

    Too many other good mascaras out there

    I've generally always had good luck with L'OReal mascaras, but not this one. Although the Double Extend formula was long wearing, did lengthen lashes and didn't smudge or flake (points for that), I found my eyelashes feeling really dry and brittle. As far as removal, at first I tried removing with one of my Boots No. 7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes, then changed to soap and water after taking a few...read more eyelashes out. Everything considered, I probably would not repurchase this mascara. Too many other god mascaras out there to settle for one that doesn't impress on all criteria. — 5 years, 10 months ago

    Good idea, Bad Product

    Reading the packaging of L'Oreal's new DoubleExtend Beauty Tubes Mascara, made me skeptical. Using this mascara will make my lashes appear 80% longer? That's quite the claim! But the premise sounded like it might actually work. You start out with the conditioning base coat from one end of this double ended tube. The base coat builds "tubes" along the tips of each lash, extending the...read moreir length. Then you switch to the other end of the tube where the mascara is at and apply it over the base coat. I tried this mascara for a week and just could not get the hang of it. The base coat went on easily enough, but the top coat got gunky real fast. I tried different techniques: waiting a few minutes for the base coat to dry, combing my lashed before applying the top coat, applying only one layer of top coat, combing after the top coat, etc. The problem was that more that one swipe of the top coat would gunk up the lashes and they'd start clumping together. As for the lengthening - yeah, my lashes looked a little bit longer, but nowhere near 80% longer. If you have shorter lashes, you may like the little extra length, but this is definitely not lash extensions in a bottle. The packaging does claim that it won't smudge or flake, which it didn't. Despite looking like spider legs, the mascara wore well all day. One cool think is that it then rinses off with just water. The not so cool think is that it turns stringy and sticks to everything as you try to wash it off. I tried makeup remover to see if it would be easier, but it wouldn't really take it off. The best thing I found was a wash cloth with water - although you then can't use the washcloth on the rest of your face or else you'll get black mascara stringies all over. So all in all, not the best. It's a good try, but could certainly stand to be retooled. L'Oreal is definitely on to something, but missed the mark this time. — 5 years, 11 months ago
