This lovely mascara caught my eye because of it's odd curvy shape. It somewhat reminds me of an elegant, long-necked and lithe...but very much pregnant lady! hehe! The tapered wand conforms to the hand so well that mascara application is easily maneuvered.  I also like it that the brush looks neat and clean everytime i use it. Unlike some formulation that looks CHUNKY, messy and "globby" the moment you take the wand out of the tube. 

After curling my lashes with Shu Uemura curler (they work best together), i usually apply 2-3 coats of this. It goes smoothly as the fine bristles separates and lengthens each strand. If there's one outstanding quality this mascara has, it's the lengthening power! You'll definitely notice the difference! And it does so in a way that it looks  natural, like you were smack lucky you were born with it kind of thingie. It doesn't give that thick, gooey and fake spiderlike mascara effect. So forget trying this if you're aiming for that dramatic dolly look. 

PROS:
-really lengthens
-separates and defines each hair
-natural looking lashes
-no flaking
-coats evenly
-buildable
-dries easily
-lasted all day
-doesn't feel heavy
-absolutely no eye irritations

CONS:
-didn't add much volume
-has tendency to clump (when not applied properly)
-curl holding ability is so-so
-pricey

WILL I REPURCHASE?

Yes, because it really makes my short Asian lashes look as if they actually have a life. I'm not after the volume or curling, i  just want longer lashes that looks naturally pretty. And L'Extreme gives me that... effortlessly. I have to say that it's still not HG material for me. I'm still in search of a mascara that will give me sky high lashes, has zero clumps and dirt-cheap. But for the meantime, this is the closest i can get...

The mascara looks great. Your lashes are noticeably longer. Too bad it doesn't hold the curls very well. :)

great review, i must try this mascara! i think the first priority for a mascara for me is also lengthening, and then curl/volumizing!

On the high-end market, Lancome carries a few of the most awesome mascaras around. I used to love their Definicils. I also love the Fatale one with the interesting comb for lashes. L'exteme looks like a very promising product. It worked really nice for your lashes. You already have beautiful, long lashes to begin with. The mascara enhanced them and made them very doll-like. :)

Своею неожиданностью и странностью" женщин является довольно виновную: к преступницам ли по страсти или же к врожденным преступницам, так как она принадлежит, по-видимому, к одной и другой из этих категорий одновременно. Как мужчины: их доводят до преступления не дурные страсти, но воля их любовников, для обладать какой-нибудь женщиной, то он привязывал свой многие основные черты.
