Guide Review - Review of L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara

Just like most women I am a mascara addict. So when I was asked by a reader about the New L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes mascara, I jumped on the chance to request a sample. Normally I review products at least twice before doing a write-up, so this time I did the same but slept with the mascara on my lashes for the second trial. The first trial went well because the instructions are very easy to follow and there are only two main steps anyway. The white basecoat went on very easily and I could see how much I was coating my lashes with, which was nice. The topcoat was phenomenal. It was very easy to apply over the basecoat, dried quickly, didn't clump or smudge, and stayed in place all day without leaving me with raccoon eyes. It was also very comfortable and natural feeling on my lashes and didn't itch or irritate my eyes what-so-ever.

The second trial had a very surprising outcome. After sleeping in the mascara, to simulate that this happens sometimes, I was shocked to wake up to see no mascara residue on my pillow or under my eyes. It wasn't as comfortable on my lashes as the first day, but it still looked wonderful and fresh. After waking up groggy and washing my face, I had forgotten for a moment that I was to simply smooth the "tubes" off with my fingertips so I was horrified to see what looked like my eyelashes on my face. After realizing what I had done, it washed away with no problems. The first trial wash away worked without a hitch, though, since I followed the directions and wasn't still half asleep. So the bottom line for this mascara is that it has launched its way to my new favorite mascara. The "tube" technology is fabulous and the look and feel gives you the perfect just-from-the-salon lashes without the high price. L'Oreal's Double Extend Beauty Tubes mascara is a definite must-have for anyone and everyone.
