The Loreal Double Extend Mascara does belong to a new breed of mascaras. It is not exactly like the Imju Fiberwig but I'd say they are far cousins.

The double extend mascara, uses the Tubes Technology, which is pretty simple but neat idea. There are two sides to this mascara - the nourishing base coat and the ultra lengthening top tube coat. So , like you might have guessed. The base coat goes on first and coats your lashes a ghostly white. The ultra lengthening top coat goes over it, forming a tube of beautiful black over the white base. The end result - longer, voluminous lashes !

But just how much of a difference did this bring ? Let them pictures speak...

Pretty nah ? I love the volume ! My lashes look much more darker and thicker creating the illusion of falsies. Oh yeah, I did not use a curler, so you'll see that it gave my lashes a good lift on its own. The length was good too. The white base coat adds a little length, separates the lashes and the lengthening coat takes the length factor up a bit. There was no major clumping either. I did try adding 3 or four coats sometimes, yet the mascara managed to coat each lash separately and not in bulk.

The only BUT is...it makes my lashes feel very heavy. I really need my lashes to feel light. If they feel heavy, I almost get a headache. The few days I wore it, I couldn't wait to get home and wash it off.

Speaking of washing if off...The mascara does not come off as black liquid when washed with warm water. It comes off as tiny black strings. Reminds me of those teenage years when I was only allowed to use cream hair removers...

Hope you had a great weekend ! Did you check out America's Best Dance Crew ? How kool were Quest Crew !!! I am totally crushing on those boys...I'll take some Ryan and Victor dance action any day ...

Hi Mugdha !

It is right ! I really do wish my eyes weren't that sensitive to heavy mascara :( Another reason why I love Clinique stuff !
