i feel like this is a mascara that its slightly clumpy. i did get pretty good length, and i put on a coat of covergirl lashblast beforewards and it looks soooo defined (but still clumpy). i think this mascara is good but honestly not worth trying because, well, it's just average, nothing too special
I have this in purple. It's my "barely there" mascara product.
+ doesn't clump, no spider lashes
+ doesn't run
+ very, very longlasting, practically unmovable
+ at least it separates them
- ridiculous price
- didn't pull any length even from my long but blonde lashes
- so stiff that it feels like concrete on my lashes and I don't like it
- absolutely no volume
+ because of the above +s and -s, it's actually perfect for bottom lashes, but that's it. If you want a very expensive and very longlasting product that does nothing for you, it's the one.
Seems that Lancome mascaras are just not for me, I hated Definicils too...
In my opinion, this is the prettiest mascara tube that Lancome has designed. Love the slender shape of this mascara.
This mascara is AMAZING AT HOLDING CURLS!!!! It lasted over 12 hours without any problems at all, and this is only after curling lashes quickly and no lash primer. It DOESN'T CLUMP and the finished look is simple yet sophisticated. Imagine beautiful curls and defined lashes without that dramatic made-up look. It makes any eye-makeup look more delicate and beautiful.
In terms of length, it does a pretty good job. I would say the Guerlain Le 2 gives more length but then the Curl-Holding power of L'extreme more than makes up for it, nicely curled lashes look longer than lengthened lashes that don't curl enough anyways... Also the Guerlain Le Deux's finished look is less delicate than this, that one makes it look obvious that you are wearing mascara (which is good if you want each strand of lashes to look thicker and darker). The L'extreme makes your lashes look amazingly natural, hence the delicate and simple yet sophisticated finish.
If you are looking to create a clean, simple look with some added length and beautifully curled lashes which lasts all day, then this mascara is a must-have, even for short, soft Asian lashes like mine!
I've tried sooo many high end mascaras and this is by far the best! It holds a curl like *no other*. They even stay curled for a little while after I remove all my eye make up! I have fairly long, straight lashes (my mother is Japanese), so the curl aspect is important! This mascara lengthens more than it thickens giving a lovely, natural look- but the hyper-curl that I get with this product is pretty dramatic. Sometimes when I want extra thickness I apply this followed by a coat of YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils (which makes my lashes super-straight on its own). Awesome mascara! I'd be lost (and straight-lashed) without it!
I've been using this for about two weeks. I switched over from Virtuose, because Virtuose was giving me a lot of volume (which I already have), but not enough length. Ehh, I like this mascara, it's good. But I can't help feeling that it's not the best I can do. The Virtuose dried out pretty quickly, but then again, it was a drier formula. I use the white primer part from L'oreal Double Extend, and then I use this on top of it. This can look really clumpy if not applied well. I don't know, it does give some great length, but to do so, I usually apply a coat and then about half an hour later, apply another one. A third coat later on really pops, but it's just too much work.
This is a good mascara in comparison to other Lancome mascaras and similar products in Dior and other brands. It is liquid enough to work in layers but it dries out quickly. If you have a lot of lashes this may not work for you unless you have naturally curled lashes. This mascara is good for length but does not hold curl very well. In addition, I would recommend dabbing some translucent powder in the under-eye area because the mascara may leave black residues after few hours.
I have short dark lashes that need lengthening and body. This does both. (as compared to Lancome Definicils which just gives length). This is my favorite mascara and I pair it with the lash primer Lancome sells. Lancome mascaras never flake off and land on your undereye, and they come off easily with remover.
Got this for a birthday gift from bff who knows I am a lash fanatic. Apparently a counter lady talked her into buying this. Totally not worth the money she paid for it... it smudges and does not hold curl. I have medium length straight asian lashes and it is very important for a mascara to hold its curl to brighten my eyes. It is definitely a better product than most drug store brands but there are way way way better high end mascaras and drug store mascaras out there.
I have limp, tiny Asian lashes and L'Extreme does wonders for lengthening them! I have the waterproof formula, and it's the only mascara I've ever used that doesn't give me the dreaded "raccoon eyes." They don't do much by the way of volume, but I usually wear it for work, so no need for full, dramatic lashes. The formula is thick, but not so thick that you cannot layer it a bit to add more drama before going out after work.
LOOOOOOVE this mascara. For the reviewers that commented on the lack of volume and therefore did not give it the highest rating please note that this NOT FOR VOLUME mascara. This is for LENGTH and it does deliver. I used my Shu eyelash curler and a coat of this mascara and it was fabulous. For evening or going out I do the same thing but do two coats of this and a coat of volumizing mascara and wow, I really get the false eyelash look. I have been asked twice already if I had false lashes on and I was so proud to indignantly say "NEVER" ! Remember to do the lenghtening coats first then the volume mascara for spectacular results.
