La Roche-Posay Mascara Extension – Review

 

La Roche-Posay is a French beauty brand that is well known for their skincare products, especially their very effective anti-acne range, Effaclar. What you may not not know is that the brand also has a full range of makeup and bath & body products! Earlier this year, I attended the Effaclar BootCamp in Paris where I got a chance to know the brand a little better and was absolutely stoked to receive some lovely products as a gift from the brand. The Extension Mascara was part of the gift bag and after a few weeks of use, I can confidently say that it is one of the nicest mascaras I’ve ever used. It comes in a black tube and has a slim wand with short bristles packed in a helical pattern. The brush may look deceptively thin but it coats the lashes amazingly well, adding instant length and thickness.

The formula is neither too thick, nor too runny and just works beautifully to enhance and lengthen the lashes. It comes in two variants – black and brown and I own the black (Noir) one. It is jet black and while its not waterproof, it stays all day and doesn’t flake or melt off. It doesn’t weigh down the lashes and you can build up the intensity in multiple coats. It also does a great job of separating the lashes and doesn’t clump even as you layer it. It holds up curl very well and keeps the lashes looking long, curled and thick all day. I do not have sensitive eyes and rarely have adverse reactions to mascaras but for those of you who do, this mascara would be perfect as its hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive eyes.

Overall, its a fantastic mascara that adds amazing length and thickness to the lashes and doesn’t irritate the eyes. The formula is long wearing but not difficult to take off and the slim brush makes it easy to reach the shorter, inner lashes easily. I’m not sure of its availability outside of Europe (or France) but if you happen to spot this, do give it a try! Especially recommended for people with sensitive eyes.

Rating : 4.5/5
