L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Lash Extension Effect Mascara is a cheaper alternative to Blinc Kiss Me mascaras if you like the idea of coating your lashes through tubing. What I like about this mascara is that the brush evenly coats your lashes, and I didn't even have to worry about clumping even after several coatings. There were no weird or putrid smell like some mascaras tend to have. As for the voluminizing factor, it only did a mediocre job. I've had other mascaras that gave me a more voluminous lashes.
Some gripes about the mascara: I had a hard time controling and holding the mascara wand because the wand itself was too short. Application took a lot longer for me to do and at one point became frustrating because of the trouble I'm having trying to hold the mascara wand. It also didn't help the the tubes were bulky and fat.
As for the lengthening factor, there were no apparent changes in length with my lashes even with the primer and regardless how many coat you choose to apply. The mascara also weighed my lashes down and leaving them flat looking and nowhere being anything sexy or sultry.
But, the worst part of using this mascara is taking it off! For some odd reason, makeup remover only makes it even more difficult in taking it off, but sometimes just washing it with water like it suggests you do will also not get the job done. The idea of tubing your lashes might be a neat one, but not when they're getting stuck on your cheeks. And most of the time even after you thought you completely took it off, you'll wake up the next day with traces of mascara. The 'tubes' can be quite messy and annoying.
