After being never satisfied with a drugstore mascara I started my journey in the high-end department. My lashes are pretty thin, medium length, straight… So I am looking for some VOLUME, definition and some sort of a curl.
I’ve heard a lot of darn good things about Lancome products so I decided to start with this brand.
A mascara that gives lashes buildable volume without clumping or flaking. Go as bold, or natural, as you desire with Hypnôse Custom Volume Mascara. With every stroke, the patented POWERFULL™ brush intensifies lashes from root to tip while the exclusive SoftSculpt™ formula—enriched with Vitamin B5—wraps lashes one luxurious layer at a time without smearing, smudging, or clumping. Create day to evening looks with this buildable mascara, and achieve 600 percent the volume of your natural lash.
Volume: 0.21 oz. / 6.2g
First of all, I love the packaging. So elegant. Beautiful.
I was skeptic about its wand. I thought I am not gonna like it. It is not silicone, it’s that old school kinda wand, with very dense bristles. It separates and define my eye lashes beautifully.
The formula of this mascara is just right. Not too watery, not too thick or dry… Gives a lot of volume to my lashes. It opens your eyes from the first layer. I need 2-3 layers to get the desired result. This mascara is not gonna make your lashes hard rock, crunchy, dry… My lashes were flexible and soft all day. It also holds the curls of your lashes too. Besides the volume you have some length added too. No clumping, no transferring or smudging noticed. I just love it.
See by yourself what great results I got:
Unfortunately, with my moving I couldn’t find my eye lash brush to make them look even more separate. But even without that step I think it looks very good.
I also would like to mention that Lancome sent me a couple of samples along with my order.
These are good size samples. Lancome Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover and Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara is what I got.
Even though I already found my holy grail eye makeup remover, I must admit this Lancome Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover is fantastic and beyond my expectations. It removes any type of makeup so fast, with no mess… It has such a nice and subtle scent to it. I would repurchase it if not the price. It’s $29 for 4.2 oz. and considering I wear makeup 4-5 days a week, this bottle would last me 2.5 – 3 weeks, so not even a month. Rather than that no complaints about the product itself. I recommend it if you have the money :)
The Lancome Hypnose Drama is another good mascara. It has that kind of wavy brush, which you probably seen before in a volumizing mascara. This mascara I liked a little less than the previous one. It definitely gives more body to your lashes but at the same time it made them heavier. Plus it is not as good at separating lashes. The formula is thicker and if you’re not careful you can end up with some spidery, clumpy lashes.
I am very happy with my purchase. I do recommend the Hypnose Volume Mascara to everybody! My sister has longer lashes, and this mascara makes them look like you have some falsies on. Everything about it is just perfect IMO. I will repurchase it for sure. It is pricey, but I am ready to pay that much for a mascara like this :)
