Mascara is my most favourite make-up product.  I have tried lots of brands and I think different mascara works on different lashes.  Today, I am going to review the mascara I am currently using which is L’Oreal Paris Double Extension Beauty Tubes.

Product Description

L’Oreal Paris Double Extension Beauty Tubes is a lengthening mascara with a 2-step process.  The first step is a nourishing base coat which contains ceramide R and panthenol-D to protect and strengthen lashes.  The second step creates lengthening tubes around each lash to make lashes appear up to 80% longer.


1. Mascara free – uncurled and then curled lashes.  What lashes?  EXACTLY!!  I freakin’ love eyelash curlers!

2. After applying the first step – white base coat (Note : I skip this step out for my lower lashes)

3. Wait for 1 minute and then apply the second step – black lengthening tubes – to upper and lower lashes

What I like about L’Oreal Double Extension Beauty Tubes

As you can see in the photos, this mascara really helps to lengthen and thicken my short stubby lashes.  I also like it because I am able to use this mascara on my lower lashes without worrying that it will run because let me tell you, this mascara has stubborn staying power – which is also part of its downfall…

What I dislike about L’Oreal Paris Double Extension Beauty Tubes

bad qualities

It can be summed up from the photo.  Basically, it is a bugger to remove.  You have to wait AT LEAST 30 seconds!  This is a long time when you’ve had a long ass day and all you want to do is go to bed!!!  And also, the packaging is poor because there are cracks forming already – and I have barely used it.


L’Oreal Paris Double Extension Beauty Tubes does a good job of lengthening my lashes at an affordable price for a drugstore brand.

    I have quite a number of mascaras atm and sometimes I’m a bit silly and just pick one by random without really looking. But last week(?) I actually bothered to try my Estee Lauder double mascara and it works pretty well! It doesn’t clump my lashes which I am extremely happy about 😀
