What is Tubing Mascara and Should You Use It?

I’ve always felt that mascara is a personal preference.  Why would you use a volumizing mascara if you were going to comb through ever lash with a safety pin or lash comb so there are no clumps?  There’s probably a better mascara that meets your needs.  This is why it’s important to choose the right mascara for you.  One mascara that I often recommend is tubing mascara.

What is Tubing Mascara?

L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes

Tubing mascara creates actual tubes around your lashes.  This allows the mascara to extend beyond the actual length of your lashes.  The formula works like waterproof mascaras without the hassle.  It’s smudge proof, smear proof, and will wear for hours if you need it to.  When you want to remove it, you just use warm water.

Will YOU Like It?

I have four main priorities with a mascara – something that adds volume, has a good brush, won’t smudge, and is easy to remove.  My bottom lashes are longer and prone to smudging.  When this happens, I look tired and my dark circles are more noticeable.  If I use a tubing mascara, it never smudges!  Even better, I can remove the mascara with my fingers!  The mascara slides off easily in little tubes.  It’s so gentle on the eyes.

If you are used to using makeup remover to get rid of mascara, the transition to warm water might be a struggle for you.  Also, I think there are formulas out there that provide a little bit better definition in the lashes and offer better brushes.

How to Use It?




Most tubing mascaras work like normal mascaras, but the one by L’Oreal comes with a primer.  First, apply the primer. Let it set for about 30 seconds, then apply the mascara.  If you apply the mascara too soon, you will miss out on some of the volume.   If you apply it too late, it is harder to coat.

Good Candidates for this Mascara

  • People with sensitive and/or watery eyes
  • People looking for longer lashes
  • People that want the benefits of waterproof mascara without the hassle of taking it off
  • People that like long wearing makeup products and do not want to reapply their mascara later in the day
  • People with aging eyes
  • People that need to lock in the curl in their lashes.  Once this mascara sets, it keeps your lashes in place!

One final note.  Don’t let your toddler play with your mascara.  Harvey found it fascinating and managed to use half of the primer on my shirt!
