Made my lashes longer, but also made them look clumpy and fake....and not fake in a good way. I'm ready to wash it off and use my Diorshow. I could brush the clumps out but that tends to ruin the "length" this mascara has added....would not repurchase.
It blends well with my Revlon false eyelashes.
My favorite mascara, better than Diorshow, the best mascara I have used and I have used many.
Gives you a dramatic look, long and thick lashes and a great curling effect that lasts all day. Easier to remove than Diorshow.
this mascara is very glossy, which i love. the sheen lasts all day! it also contains fibres which do NOT flake into the eyes, and that's a plus. however, it isn't very volumising-- though it does lengthen quite well. as other reviewers have noted, it can dry a little on the stiff side. i generally like lancome mascaras, and may purchase this one again. i'm waiting for a delivery of a YSL mascara... i'll see how that line pans out. i prefer to spend a little extra on a 'luxury' mascara than be disappointed by a drugstore brand. overall, a decent mascara.
This doesn't provide much volume for me, but I used it over Lash Blast today, and was pleased with the combo. On it's own, it provides excellent lengthening for a more natural look. I agree that it does make lashes a little stiff, but I didn't have problems with flaking or raccoon eyes. I like the narrow, traditional brush for capturing each and every lash. Overall, I might purchase again, but I think there are drugstore mascaras that provide equivalent length without as much crispiness and much better value.
Really nice lengthening mascara.!! Lasts all day without smudging on my lower lids which is amazing as I wear contacts and I am a dog groomer with hair flying in my eyes all day long. I have also got Virtuose on the go, but I am preferring this one by far. I also use Diorshow, E.L. Sumptuous and Projectionist but have to say L'extreme is the first I have bothered to review!
As a mascara addict, I've tried everything. This mascara lands somewhere in the middle of my list, behind YSL Faux Cils and Clinique High Impact.
While it gives really great definition, it makes the lashes dry and crispy. It's actually physically uncomfortable after a while, because the mascara gets so dry little flakes can get into your eyes.
I don't particularly recommend this product, especially for the price. Go with something else, your lashes will thank you for it.
L-extreme is my must-have in my make-up bag. Since I used it I have been getting a lot of compliments.
Think about it, it's a big deal when people comments on your eyelash coz it's not a huge part of the face make-up, so when someone notice your long and glamorous eyelash, it really means you have made the right choice in picking your mascara.
I remember a girl from the make-up counter said my lower eyelash is longer than most people upper eyelash, of course I recommended this product to her.
Try it, you won't regret!
Lancome L'Extreme is a great lengthening mascara, and it adds a little volume too. I really like the brush; the bristles are very hard, and thin. When I first saw the brush I though it would clump a lot but actually this mascara never clumps at all. It is a good mascara for a natural look. Several layers can result in a more dramatic look (but it gets to look a little plastic if you put on too many layers). It does not smudge or flake and comes off with face cleanser. The only thing I do not like about this mascara is that when first applied, it looks great, but about half an hour later, the curl completely falls flat and I am left with my stick strait lashes back in their original position pointing downward into my eye. I am definitely going to try the waterproof version, since wp formulas hold a curl better.
Lancome's L-extreme mascara lengthened and added more volume to my lashes which looked absolutely fabulous...unfortunately, it clumped too easily and it took me several minutes to comb through the clumps. A few hours after application, it started to flake which irritated my eyes (made me tear up a bit) and it then began to smudge. I looked a crazy mess that day. I don't think I'll be purchasing this again. Still on the search for my HG mascara...
