Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero-smudge Lengthening mascara

Where I got it: A friend of mine gave this to me as a gift.  I managed to try this mascara before I got my lash extensions, but forgot to post it earlier, hence I’m not with any lash extensions in the photos below.

What I got: I got a sample size tube of Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Zero-smudge lengthening mascara in black. It claims to give 15 hours of wear that gives extraordinary length and zero smudging.

How I find it: I curl my lashes and use a fibre lash base to give it some extra volume and length. Then I put 2 coats of this mascara on over that. This is more volumizing than I thought, and in the lengthening department is quite good as well! I think it lengthened my lashes about 40%!

Overall: It does live up to its claim for zero-smudging and I love it! I havent’ worn it for 15 hours so I can’t comment on that. But I do have oily eye lids/eye area and mascaras ALWAYS run to my lower eye area even after 5 hours of wear. The formula is not very smooth and glossy, but more of a textured finish, which I am OK with. 2 coats is not that clumpy but you can see eye lashes starts sticking together. Removal is very easy with eye makeup remover.

Purchase? I may if I find out the price. I do have a few favorite mascaras that are within my price range (Dejavu Fibrewig Lash knock-out, Dejavu Fibrewig extra long and Loreal Double Extend mascara).
