Review: Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara

I got a trial size of this mascara a while ago so I thought I'd share my thoughts on it now that I've had a chance to try it out.

Product: Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara

Price: £19.50

15-hour staying power.
Lashes that last.
Zero smudge.

Extreme wear. Extraordinary length. Unstoppable power-now the smudge-free lash look you see in the morning is the look you keep all day.

What's Good About It?
This mascara is the only mascara I've tried which doesn't smudge off on me. I've worn this in very hot weather and in the rain without any smudging or running. It is pretty lengthening on me too. I like the way it makes my lashes look because it doesn't clump easily like more volumizing mascaras tend to. This comes off pretty easily when you want it to, as well.

What's Disappointing?
This leaves my lashes feeling very dry when it's on. I guess this is common with waterproof mascaras but I worry that it's not good for my lashes so I don't wear this all the time. I think it's a bit pricey for what it is. It's good but I don't know if it's good to the tune of £19.50. 

Overall Score/Comment:
7/10 - I like it but I don't love it. It does what it claims to and I really appreciate that in a mascara. If I don't find a cheaper alternative, I may well purchase a full size of this.

Have you tried this? What did you think?

  1. Great review. What other mascaras have you tried? My fave is Maybelline Great Lash but right now I am using this one...

    which is a great's not waterproof but I've never noticed any smudges.

    I agree the price is pretty steep!
