L’Oreal Double Extend Lash Fortifier and Extender Mascara (in Black - Waterproof)
Now that it’s officially feeling like summer, we all have pools to swim in, runs to go on, and beaches to relax at. But of course, with those pleasures also come the inevitable sweating that summer involves.
In addition to a makeup setting spray, I highly recommend you pack a waterproof mascara in your bag for those scorching 90-degree days. I’m usually not a huge fan of waterproof mascaras (ones I’ve used in the past tended to flake or being ridiculously difficult to remove). But lo and behold, someone recommended L’Oreal Double Extend mascara and it proved all my doubts wrong.
This mascara made my lashes noticeably longer and thicker — I think the key here is in the primer. I always apply the second coat of black right after I put on the first coat of primer to avoid letting it dry out. I wore it to the beach yesterday and returned home with lashes fully in tact, no flaking or raccoon eyes for me! Ultimate win. I’m sure if this mascara can combat sweat, ocean water and a sandstorm or two, it can also combat crying (but I hope no one has to experience that!). I love the thickness that this mascara gives to my lashes and it doesn’t budge. The only con is that like most waterproof mascaras, the formula tends to clump more so be sure to brush through your lashes root-to-tip when applying.
Pros: lengthening, thickening, great waterproof formula, no flaking, no smudging, primer + mascara included
Cons: minor clumping so be diligent and thorough when applying
