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...
i actually really like this product, its just that it didnt live up to the hupe for me. it lengthens like it promises to do, and i love the wand, but its just as good as any other drugstore mascara that i could get for half the price.
the brush is really good, as its quite...what is the word....defined? its easy to apply and it coats the lashes well, just not well enough for me to get impressed by it that much.
the packaging is great, i live, nice and slender and sleek.
tho, tbh, i dont think i would buy this again
I like how it lengthens my lash and holds the curl very naturally and perfectly. The mascara last my lash curl and pretty & not very flaky all day,but I don't think it adds much volume to the lash, maybe you would have to apply like, 8 coats of product of something
I use this with Lancome's definicils. If you twirl the brush while applying *rolling the mascara wand between your thumb and index finger forward away from your eyes* to enhance the curl. I have stick straight lashes, and it even makes a curl when I use this technique. This isn't my #1 mascara, but I like the brush a lot! I will update if anything changes...
this is a great mascara for drama - it curls it volumizes and lengthens but the reason why it lost a lippy is because it always smudges! its waterproof and yet at the end of the day i find some black smudges on my bottom lashline!
Literally flaked off after an hour! I looked like raccoon... Did not clump but also didnt really lengthen or add volume.
LOVE LOVE LOVE, its not clumpy after applying several coats. Makes my eyelashes long, beautiful and natural looking but dramatic. Works wonders.
My eyelash type is black and thick. My main problem is length.
I used this product for such a long time until recently. It has started giving me hives on my eyelids. Such a shame, because this stuff really does work! I'm curious to know if they've changed the formula or if I just suddenly developed an allergy...
They say that when it comes to mascara, it's hard to get one that has it all: Length, Volume and Definition.
If I had to choose just one quality in a good mascara, it would be Length.
And that's what L'Extreme does.
The mascara definitely has an interesting tube shape, but once I got past that, I got a smooth application, and LEEEEENGTH! Very beautiful, long NATURAL-LOOKING lashes on my Asian eyes. The definition is a bonus.
Will definitely re-purchase.
