Before I bought this I read all of the reviews here and so I will try to cover what is not mentioned or what I think is especially helpful.

I am Asian and have average length lashes, which are thin and dont curl up (they dont turn down but they stick straight out from my eye). I have never liked using mascara because I hated curling, applying mascara and then separating my lashes especially when all that didnt seem to make much difference. I have used all of the highly rated/reviewed high-end and drugstore brands (e.g., Diorshow, Chanel, pink/green tube, etc.) and just gave up on mascara... until this one.

Application: I have practiced using it for about a month now and the method for best results for me is: (1) apply white base coat thickly, (2) immediately apply black mascara and comb through with fine tooth lash comb (i have the tweezerman one) and immediately repeat with 2nd coat of mascara and comb through. I do each eye separately and as quickly as I can so the mascara doesn't dry -- once it dries on your lashes it turns rubbery so you cant comb through them. My lashes look really thick and long and curled after this. Although yes it takes time it is worth it! Plus I do not have to curl my lashes at all -- in fact I tried curling first and it was just a waste of time -- for some reason this mascara makes my lashes curl up and hold the curl even when my lashes get wet and it really doesnt smudge at all. I have used mascaras that were supposed to curl lashes but they never worked for me.

Removal: Some reviewers said that they had trouble removing the mascara. I think the trick is you have to hold water on your closed eyes for at least 5-10 seconds before you gently wipe down. Although the mascara will come off by cupping water in your hands and holding them over your eyes for a few seconds before wiping your lashes down while you wash your face, I like to use eye makeup remover pads. Again you just need to hold the soaked pad on your eye for about 5-10 seconds before wiping down or else it wont come off. Which is great because you can remove only your eyeshadow/liner and not the mascara by just wiping your eye quickly (plus my lashes still stay curled believe it or not!).

The worst thing about this product is it dries out fast. I used this mascara almost every day for about 3 weeks and then it got very thick and clumpy. I dont know if this is typical but I suspect it is because you inevitably get some of the white base coat mixed in with the mascara over time. Once it dries out then it flakes and gets very clumpy when you apply it. Not only did I replace it but I bought 2 this time.

First, the positives: my lashes did look a *bit* longer than usual (though I have naturally long lashes so the results are debatable). The negatives, however, outweigh the positives. The two-step process ("conditioning" coat plus color coat) is a bit messy. You end up using more mascara than usual to cover up the white base coat. Then there is the removal problem. The ads say that the "tubes" are easily removed with water. Uh, no. I have to use Olay cleansing clothes (rubbing pretty vigorously), and then I end up with these little black threads of mascara (the "tubes") all over my sink. Messy!
I did a side-by-side comparison of this mascara and my previous, and I didn't see a huge difference. Not enough to warrant the cons (and higher price) of the Double Extend.

    Not only does this product lengthen and fatten my lashes, I can easily clean the product off with my Purity Made Simple® One-Step Facial Cleanser. Just run water over my eyes, use my fingers to take off the tubes, cleanse with Purity.

    I'm so paranoid this product will be discontinued!

    I'm also going to try the new Manga mascara.

      Comments about L'Oreal Paris Double Extend Beauty Tube Technology Lash Extension Effect Mascara, Blackest Black, 1 ea:

      Not sure what it is about me that makes mascara smudge up under my eyes after a couple hours of wear, but ever since they discontinued the one kind that worked for me - Marathon, I have been on a quest to find something that works. I've tried high end, low end, waterproof, foreign brands - you name it. But at long last I've found L'Oreal Double Extend beauty tubes. It doesn't smear!!! And who would have ever thought that the only product in existence that doesn't smear on me would be something that wipes off simply with water and a washcloth? I don't bother with the primer layer and seem to get the same results. I've found that after a few months of use, it starts coming out of the tube clumpy - clean the brush with a dry cloth and problem solved.

        I LOVE this mascara! I always, always had mascara that would smudge, flake, or give me raccoon eyes, so when I saw this one made the little "beauty tubes" I figured I'd give it a try, and I'm SO GLAD I did! I've been using this exclusively for years, and love this mascara. It's easy to use, super easy to remove, and never budges or flakes! It can get a little clumpy, but when that happens I just wipe the brush off with a tissue and it's like new again. I hope L'Oreal never stops making this!!

          This is the only mascara I use now because my eyes cannot tolerate eye make-up remover. Easy to apply, doesn't smudge, lasts all day. It does flake when I rub my eyes but I shouldn't be rubbing my eyes anyway. Easy to take off with water -- I just twist the tubes off, voila! The key is not to let the white extension part dry before you apply the mascara.

          I've been always using this mascara, but last time I bought it, I received something not as good as before. It's difficult to apply and clumps very easily. The brush is also of bad quality. I was really disappointed to see this.

            This product applies easily and does not come off until I want it too. The only thing is you have to make sure you don't have too much on your brush or it will look heavy and thick. If you wash your face twice or wet your eyes and wait a minute or two, it comes right, no problem.

              I LOVE THIS MASCARA!! I bought it to replace a $40 mascara I couldn't afford at the time, and I've never looked back. This is my fourth or fifth tube and I recommend it to all my friends and photography clients. *TIP* I actually skip the primer coat and just use the mascara, and find that my lashes look fuller this way.

                  The best mascara I've ever used!!!

                  If anyone says this stuff flakes, don't believe it. It's not possible for this stuff to flake - it goes on like little tubes and doesn't come off until you wash your face and pull them off.

                  I hate having racoon eyes and this mascara is the only one that doesn't smudge or flake. I recently have been experimenting with new makeup brands and have tried several other mascaras recently to see if there was something I liked better... and well...here I am coming back to purchasing this stuff. I stockpile it in fear that they will someday discontinue it. Since I tried a multitude of mascaras and nothing came close to being this good, my decision to stockpile it appears to be a good one!! I highly recommend this product!

                    I LOVE this mascara. It lengthens and separates. It doesnt flake, so you don;t get dirty specks under your eye as the day goes on. I would have LOVED this when I used to wear contacts...I will never wear fake lashes - no need to with this! It comes off very easily and leaves no dark smudge under your eye = but part of the reason it does that is that it comes off in tact, like little strings or tubes. It can make a little bit of a mess and looks a little bit like bugs, but fear not! all of your lashes haven't fallen out!It is flexible and comfortable and not stiff at all. Slight con - It is hard to freshen up - if you need to do so, you really need to apply more after it has dried, then just take it off and start over. Still, I have only ever needed to freshen this up if I change my eyemakeup in the evening and get eyeshadow on the lashes.

                      I just use this when I'm going out, because it takes extra time to apply and remove. It doesn't bother my sensitive eyes. Doesn't come off with rain, sweat, or tears. I sleep in it, but use a mild facial cleanser to remove it with a face cloth in the shower. No issues. Looks good, feels good, low price. Cheap thrill.
