Mascara Chronicles - My Quest for full & long Lashes, Loreal Paris Double Extend Lash Boosting Serum

This is going to be a new aspect of my blog.  Those that have been following me on youtube and know me personally - know that I have always been VERY disappointed in my scrawny little lashes.  Everyone in my family has long lashes, my husband and children have VERY long lashes that are very full... and I am on the search for something that will give me all of those things.

2 years ago - I started the Beautylash MD project, which definitely grew my lashes to my maximum potential.  It was wonderful... however, it was short lived because once I stopped using the product...  my eyelashes went back to it's usual and original length and fullness.  Needless to say, I was very disappointed... but I also expected it to happen.

So - now with so many products out there offering so much more for the short lash gal, I am going to try the products that I come across and hear raves about to test and see which one works.  So - here is my take on the Loreal Paris, Double Extend Lash Boosting Mascara.

Loreal Paris - Double Extend Lash Boosting Mascara:  I blogged about this a few weeks ago after doing a haul.  I love it for the most part, it definitely gives my lashes an extended look.  I haven't tried the serum that they advertise along with it (pictured below on the left)... it costs more than the mascara alone... and I just couldn't justify purchasing it.  My take on this is pretty simple...  I loved the primer side of the mascara... and I did feel like my lashes did get a little stronger with use.  I liked the fact that the mascara brush as well as the actual mascara was not clumpy and went on effortlessly - however, my biggest complaint is that the actual mascara was too light in color, almost a kind of off black color or gray.  When you apply it over the white serum/primer side... it seems even a lighter shade of gray.  I am all about dark black lashes... and I had to apply one of my other lashes over it to get that effect.  I love the primer... my lashes look so long with it and it definitely had a noticeable difference... but I would ditch the mascara part of it and use something else.  If Loreal could change the color of the mascara and make it darker, this would quite possibly be one of my all time favs - if not my favorite all together.
