What is Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Mascara?
Double Wear’s staying power comes from a clever combination of a temperature-sensitive polymer complex and soft film formers that provides flexible yet exceptionally long wear to lashes. Although engineered to be resistant to humidity and perspiration, the 15-hour formula unlocks from the lashes with warm water and with the use of a cleanser washes away clean, removing every last trace.
Another formula first is the use of jellified water to help deliver thickeners to lashes without causing them to look clumpy or dry. The jellified water also helps to saturate the pigments, imparting glossy, more intense color, while a nutrient-rich, hair-loving Panthenol complex helps keep lashes conditioned and flexible, minimizing breakage.

Why should you buy Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Mascara?
Now this was the mascara that didn’t impress me the first time I wore it and I was two minds about reviewing it. I was proved blatantly wrong about not liking it . In fact I am impressed and hence the review. 🙂
- It lives up to every claim that is mentioned. It does not smudge, it does not clump and it stays on for long time. I wore it around 12 in the afternoon and came back at around 6.30 in the evening and it looked as if I had just applied the mascara. I can’t claim for the 15 hours but I can claim for 6-7 hours stay.
- It is absoloutely smudgeproof.
- I forgot to curl my lashes today but this did the job of lengthening and curling my lashes. I was batting my lashes more than usual to flaunt because the lashes looked so long. 😛 Not only that the mascara held my lashes up until I removed it.
- When you remove it, it does not give you raccoon eyes.
- It looks more natural as the day passes by. I checked myself at least 6-7 times in mirror before passing this verdict. 😛
- The brush is such that gives you better control of lashes and it’s easier to reach the roots of your lashes. It will get every single lash and tuck it up.
- It’s waterproof.
Why should you NOT buy Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Mascara?
- It is not a volumizing mascara and neither does it claim to be. Don’t think of getting a thick lashes but if you want to have long lashes, this is for you. If your eyelashes are pretty short and you can’t be bothered enough to put false lashes on regular basis, you can apply this mascara for length and then coat it with your regular volumizing mascara.
- It does not come off easily with a normal cleanser.It would come out with an oil based cleanser or oil itself. I let the oil stay on my lashes for a minute or two and the wiped it off with a cotton swab. It came out pretty neat without giving me raccoon eyes.
It is a high end brand so I have got nothing to say about the price.
My verdict: It’s a a great mascara especially for people who have short eyelashes. You apply the mascara and you forget about smudging or curling or your lashes not looking in great shape throughout the day. You apply it once during the start of your day and you are sorted.
