Review: L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara

Claim(from L'Oreal Paris):
Get the look of salon lash extensions with the new Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara! This new lash extension effect mascara visibly lengthens your lashes up to an astonishing 80%.

Step 1: Ultra nourishing base coat infused with Ceramide R and D-Panthenol protects and strengthens lashes creating the

Step 2: Ultra-lengthening tube top coat sets to form lash-extending beauty tubes that visibly lengthen lashes to amazing new heights. Beauty tubes will not run, clump, flake or smudge and will stay on all-day.

Step 3: Beauty tubes remove easily with just warm water – no makeup remover or rubbing required!

3 out of 5; it cost almost $11 in most drug stores. A bit steep, I think. Wait for a BOGO!
Packaging: 3.5 out of 5; I like the color and feel of the packaging, but it's nothing special.
  • Volumizing: 2 out of 5;Lengthening: 5 out of 5; Defining: 5 out of 5
  • Clumping 5 out of 5; Flaking 5 out of 5; Smudging 5 out of 5
  • Fulfilling claims 5 out of 5

What I think:
This mascara is excellent for length, definition, and some serious staying power. I have a bad habit of rubbing my eyes and, naturally, when I do that my mascara just flakes right of and smudges all over my eye. Yuck. But today, I tested this mascara. I rubbed my eye and it didn't budge. I rubbed it again. Seriously? It did NOT move! Also, the length is pretty darn amazing. I was very impressed. However, it doesn't add any volume, and I'm a girl who desires long AND full lashes. I'm particular on the full lashes, because my lashes have a bit of length already.

Overall 4 out of 5; It's a really excellent mascara but, personally, I need some volume in my lashes.

Giveaway! I have two of these, so I'm going to give one away. Leave a comment with your email address. You must be a follower of my blog or a subscriber to my YouTube channel (if you are a subscriber on YouTube, leave your user name). I'll select someone in one week on Wednesday, April 15th. Or rather, Excel's random number generator will. I know I don't have a lot of followers, but I have two of these and I'm not going to use both of them. I'll also throw a few other things in there, not sure what yet.

(Sorry, Tiffers, no family members.)
