Mascara: Loreal Double Extend - Carbon Black

For some reason Mascara Primers seem to be coming out the woodwork lately, is it just me? Because of the outbreak of lash primers I decided to try one out for myself! I recently got the Loreal Carbon Black Double Extend mascara.......

Currently Loreal has three types of mascaras with a white primer on the opposite end. Double Extend (average $9), Loreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes mascara ($10-$11) and Double Extend with Lash Boosting Serum ($10-$11) I have yet to try the Double Extend Beauty Tubes or the Lash Boosting mascara.

At first I was not too fond of the primer, I tried applying it a few times, even putting on about 5 coats before any of the 'white' primer showed up on my lashes. Afterwards I did apply the black mascara on top and the outcome was so-so. I've had better experience at creating a curl even without using a primer...
For me, this mascara was a big 'miss'....I'm eager to try out the Double Extension Beauty Tubes mascara

So this is my question to you gals...Which lash primer and mascara do you love? Leave your comments and suggestions in the comment box of this post!


  1. MAC Prep N Prime Mascara
    L'oreal Voluminous Mascara.

  2. I totally agree with Kayotic! mac prep n prime mascara is the best primer!
    And my favourite mascaras are mac dazzle lash and diorshow!

  3. I am also seeking a really awesome lash primer, so I can't help you there. However, some mascaras I LOVE:
    -Rimmel Volume Maxxx (pink tube) = cheap and AMAZINGGGG
    -CoverGirl LashBlast Waterproof (orange tube) = better than the regular formula in my opinion but obv waterproof has its removing downfalls

    Good luck on your quest xox

  4. @Everyone...Thanks for these suggestions, I want the MAC one!
