This is one of the first mascaras I remember using and really loving. I kept a stock pile of these in my "young" stash. This was before the lash primer craze, and I loved how this came with a primer on one end. It really built up my lashes. I still have one of these in the package lying around and I'm excited to see if I still love it. Great mascara.
I have been using this mascara or years now. Sometimes I stray, but I always come back. Here is the key to this mascara - like a wild horse you have to break it in. The first two weeks, you get a 3 lippie product. Thickens and lengthens, but also is clump prone. Oh, but from week 2 till 12 - amazing!
- relatively inexpensive
- noticeable, but natural, lengthening and volume
- no flaking
- you have to break it in
I'm one of those people who tries new mascaras every time I need a new one. I never really stick to one, at least never one right after another! I tried this through recommendation from a friend and I bought it for about $9.99, which was kind of expensive. I bought the waterproof version.
This mascara is alright, however I've realized that I just hate putting on the white portion. It's just an extra step that takes too much time in the morning so I find I never reach for this. I've tried the black by itself and it's absolutely nothing special.
When you use both ends it does come out looking nice, but I've had mascara where it's much less work to make your eyelashes look great! I think the fact that I bought the waterproof one has a lot to do with how it looks too, it definitely holds a curl which is common with waterproof mascara. I haven't found that this smudges or anything.
This is just kind of a middle of the road mascara for me, it isn't awful, just tedious. It isn't great though.
Wouldn't buy again.
I like this alot :) I tried it and it's nice because it dosen't get on my eyelids! It really works for me!!!!
I really like this a lot. makes my eyelashes pop. lengthens them a lot too. it doesn't clump my lashes at all. you have to be good at applying mascara and know what your doing.
I'm a spoilt Diorshow Blackout & Lancome Definicils and Hypnose Drama user. Lancome Hypnose is by far my favorite.
I used L'Oreal Double Extend 505 black today, and here is what I think:
It's not worth the $$ to me. Yes, it does extend the lashes, but the fact that it doesn't spread out evenly, resulting in relatively clumpy, 'spiderleg' lashes makes it reason enough for me to bring it back. It is only like 11 bucks, but I rather spend about 20 or 25 bucks, and have flawless lashes. Even if it is relatively expensive, Dior and Lancome are worth every penny to me. Sorry....

Really good stuff! It makes my eyelashes thick and long. Since I have non existent eyelashes, this product really impressed me. You just have to be careful when you apply it. It doesn't have to be clumpy, but just apply a think layer and it won't be clumpy. It's also HOW you apply the mascara. If you do a zig zag motion on your eyelashes, it will work really well. Overall, I like it but I want to explore other mascaras too.
This mascara is okay. I wouldn't buy it again. It was a little overpriced for what it did. It made my lashes long but clumpy as well. I wouldn't repurchase it.
This product is really great for making thick looking lashes.
But the lashes are hard to seperate and they get a wet, shellacked kind of finish. When you try to take the mascara off, its pretty difficult since you get little latexy like bits that you have to pull off of each eyelash. No of which is my cup of tea.
I would never buy this again. The wand is too close to the cap, so it's hard to angle it properly for application. The primer does nothing to make lashes longer. Nothing. And the worst part are the FLAKES! Huge, uncontrollable FLAKES underneath my eyes at the end of the day. This also made my eyelashes droop. For $10, this is the WORST quality drugstore mascara I've tried in a long time. SAVE YOUR MONEY and spend an extra $10-15 to get a quality product. This mascara is horrible.
