Review : L'oreal Double Extension Renewal Serum Mascara

L'oreal first introduced its double extension mascara (i.e Ultra-Lengthening Double Extension Mascara) back in 2003 which not only lengthens our lashes by 60% but strengthen them as well. Today L'oreal Paris reformulate it and introduced a mascara that gave waterproof, ultra-lengthening, double extension mascara that comes in carbon black color. It promises to give more than 70% more length and helps to re-energises lash renewal.

This mascara contains not only nourishing Pro-Vitamin B5, Pro-peptide, it also contains Arginine (helps in the healthy grow of hair and lashes) and Madecassoside (helps with the lifespan of our lashes) which promises to reduce lash loss.

One the left side, the cap that comes in gold color is base mascara that is enriched with the exclusive L'oreal Renewal Lash Serum made up of a high tech re-activating formula.

The serum base mascara comes in white color.

Note : Because it comes in white color, it cannot be wear it alone to go out unless you going to put on it and went to bed. And the white base mascara color disappeared immediately after I put on black mascara coating.

On the right hand side, the blue color cap of the mascara is the Ultra Lengtening mascara in Black.

The formulation that comes in cream-based waxes will give a smooth texture and easy application

The black mascara comes with fine fibers. It promises to give ultra-lengthening effects that lashes will appear 80% longer instantly and designed specially for sensitive eyes and contact-lens wearer. And this mascara has waterproof and smudge proof formula.

Let's get down with the picture - a more practical comparison

I applied 2-3 coat of the black mascara , after 1 layer of mascara base.I like the fact that the fiber mascara is fine and make my eyes looks natural. And best of all it did not flake or went into the eyes after whole day application.

Although the expensive Tsuya tsuya Angel Eyes mascara might give a better effect in term of lengthening with their fiber but it flakes and went into my eyes sometimes and cause irritation.

Result : I can see significant lengthening of my lashes and slight volumizing effect on my lashes

As the fiber on the mascara are lightweight, it holds up my curled eyelashes quite nicely.

Comparison picture : Right eyes I applied L'oreal Double Extension Renewal Serum Mascara

Looked at how long my lashes are being enhanced.

Like the slogan for this mascara advert says :

Don't limit your lashes !

This mascara fiber on my lashes are easily being removed with usual Biore Cleansing Oil-in-Cotton wipes compared to the Max Factor's Fake Lash Effect mascara which is a bit difficult to be removed.

I read that for better results, we should incorporate the Renewal Lash Serum into our daily routine. Use in the morning to protect lashes from external aggressions and at night to boost lash growth and regeneration. However I just started using this , so I am not sure if this serum mascara will help in boosting up lash growth. But what I see is that, the serum base mascara helps to holds my curled lashes properly and allow the black mascara on my lashes to last longer.

Pros : Significant lengthening effect, light weight and fine fibers that looks natural and easy to be removed with makeup remover, waterproof and smudge proof mascara.

Cons : Not much of volumizing effect (after all this is a ultra-lengthening mascara)

This L'oreal Double Extension Renewal Serum Mascara is available at all L’OrĂ©al Paris cosmetic counters nationwide. The Double Extension Renewal Serum Mascara is priced at RM 49.90/each.
