Tubing


I tried "tube" mascara last summer (see my previous post here), and really loved the effect of the black tubes on my eyes, however, I didn't like the hefty price tag. L'Oreal has just come out with their own version of tube mascara and I am happy to report that it works just as well as the more expensive brand...except at 1/2 of the price! Double Extend Beauty Tubes from L'Oreal is a two-step process. One side of the product contains a nourishing base coat...a white primer that is supposed to protect, nourish and strengthen the lashes. While I am not sure that it actually does that...it does make your lashes look thicker so I guess I don't mind the puffery. The second step is the tube top coat. It goes on just like regular mascara, however, as the mascara sets, it envelops the lashes in small tubes that act like lash-lengthing extensions. Not only did my lashes look long and full, but the tubes don't smudge, run, or flake. In fact, they didn't come off in the shower until I applied some mild pressure on my eyes with a warm washcloth...then the mascara came off in little tubes in my hand. So cool. Available at any local drugstore, grocery store or Target.

may be worth a try! I just forked over a stupid amount of $ for a Lancome mascara that I don't like near as much as the good old drug store brands.... perhaps I'll try this next! thanks!
