You’re up to speed on ‘tube technology’ after I reviewed Blinc Mascara. Now L’Oreal takes a crack at using those tubes in their Double Extend mascara but with a few advantages over Blinc’s.
First, I like the brush better in the L’Oreal version- it’s fuller and fluffier grabbing every singe lash creating fullness which you’ll need since using a second coat once it dries is a big no-no in tube technology. I just re-curl once it’s almost dry and find the coverage to be more than enough.
Double Extend also includes a primer so you get the fattest lashes possible. Make sure you apply primer then mascara right after doing one eye at a time for the best results so it doesn’t dry in between.
More than anything though, I love that the price is less than half ($11 vs $24) for the very same, smudge and tear resistant, long-wearing formula. It’s even buy one get one 50% off right now at Drugstore.com.
