It’s hard not to be skeptical of the claims that mascara manufacturers make. They claim all kinds of amazing results, and often we just see the same results that our last tube of mascara gave us. Not this time. L’Oreal’s Double Extend Beauty Tubes mascara is different. Inspired by lash extensions, this tube’s got the two-sided deal, where Step 1 is white and Step 2 is black and you have to apply both. I don’t really love that aspect, but it’s worth the double application. This mascara actually makes my barely-there lashes look longer and thicker. And the formula doesn’t smudge. (At. All.) In fact, when I remove my eye makeup at the end of the day, the tubes of mascara slide off my lashes, almost crumbling in pieces, rather than smearing under my eyes, which I love. The greatest thing is that this is a drug-store purchase. Head out to Walgreen’s!
