L’oreal Paris Double Extension Mascara In India | Review, Price Swatches


Today I am going to be reviewing the L’oreal Paris Double Extension Mascara whilst Arnab Goshwami is debating away at the top of his voice in the background. Forgive me if I sound argumentative in this post, he can be very influential when his voice is attacking your ear drums at 100 decibels high. Although who I would be arguing with while reviewing a mascara is yet unclear…..Probably with my alter ego’s.

Anyhoo, I went shopping the other day and happened to stop by the L’oreal counter. The sales assistant sold me this after pointing out that my lashes could do with a little lengthening. Sneaky.

What the company Claims: L’Oréal Paris Double Extension Mascara is a 2 step mascara which is composed of a conditioning white base coat with Ceramide, a lengthening Mascara with a brush which evenly distributes intense colour from root to tip, without clumping.
The result? Your lashes look longer and separated.
Step 1: Ultra lengthening, conditioning base coat with Ceramide.
Step 2: Intense colour without clumping.
My Experience: Its a double ended mascara. One end is a white serum which is meant to condition your lashes while the other end is a lengthening mascara.
I found that the serum helps in keeping the lashes soft when you apply the mascara. Its not a primer and doesn’t help in making the mascara any darker.
The mascara gives me a good length if I spend my time on it and carefully apply 2 coats. With only 1 coat, the mascara is nothing unique. I also found that, if I tried applying more than 2 coats, it made my lashes look spidery and dry, like some grotesque twin of Kim Kardashians famous spidery lashes. That was with the serum on. Frankly, I expected better with the price I paid. I mean Maybelline falsies gives me better volume and length with half the price, without making my lashes look spidery.

Pros:
  • Serum makes the lashes less crispy looking
  • Lengthens the lashes if you apply 2 coats carefully
Cons:
  • Does nothing special to the lashes with 1 coat
  • Makes lashes spidery and dry if you apply more than 2 coats
  • Ingredient list looks endless!

Do I recommend it? No, as I said, I expected better for the price I paid. Maybelline falsies does a better job with half the price.
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
I hope this helped,
xoxo
