Pros: great primer, inexpensive
Cons: poor mascara formulation

If it's one cosmetic item that I can never quite find a favorite product for, it's mascara. I am always trying the latest and greatest mascara product on the market and the L'Oreal Paris Double Extend mascara wasn't an exception in this venture. I mostly decided on this purchase due to the price tag and the primer/mascara feature, which I have never used before. The idea is to apply the primer, which adds a base coat to your lashes, and then to add the actual mascara, which brings in the actual color. 

Let me start off by saying that the primer is amazing, the mascara? Not so much. The mascara is very clumpy and hard to apply. It doesn't seem to lengthen or thicken my lashes either, so I have resorted to simply using the primer with another mascara.

On to the primer, be forewarned, the primer is ALMOST like glue. It will make your eyelashes very stiff, but it lengthens them beyond belief. I have noticed that sometimes after a day of wearing the primer and another mascara that my eyes, particularly my eyelashes will begin to hurt. My advice is to use a makeup remover to loosen the primer and mascara during removal.
