Does it irritate your eyes?


In my current quest to find the best make up products I can stick to for the next few years, I have discovered the perfect mascara in this Lancome product.

It's a lash-lengthening mascara and many of those - even premium brands - tend to make a mess of the lashes. The little bits of fibre that are responsible for the lengthening stick at various angles, make the colouring part of mascara go blobby and curdle... and so on.

Now, L'extreme is nothing of the sort: it's essentially a great mascara, which doesn't make lashes stick together, doesn't go clumpy/blobby, and whose lenghtening fibres go where they should be (i.e. at the end of my lashes) to make them look longer and slightly curlier.

The lenghtening is not actually, despite the name, an extreme evening/clubbing/stage effect: it's perfectly suitable for normal wear (though I wear glasses which means my eye make up is less prominent).

In my expereince many lenghtening mascaras were often more irritating to the eyes, but this one doesn't irritate. The bits stay where they should be and although it's not waterproof, it ceratinly doesn't go all over my face with a slightest touch.

The brush is good sized and works very well at keeping the lashes separate and allowing light touching up of the top surface of top lashes and the whole of the bottom ones.

L'extreme costs around £15-£20.

Very highly recommended.
