Hooray for the 4-day weekend!
Mascara is a make-up product I don’t usually like to experiment with as I know my favourites - Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Waterproof and Max Factor False Lash Effect Waterproof (they tick all boxes). However, my Aunty very kindly bought me a few Lancôme goodies for my birthday, so I got the opportunity to deter away from my usual and give Lancôme Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara a try.
As a general rule, waterproof mascaras are my absolute fave; no risk of panda eyes, but an absolute ball-ache to remove. Lancôme (original formula - not waterproof) state that full, maximum coverage can be achieved whilst evenly coated lashes without weighing them down. The unique cone shaped brush allows for smooth, easy application, even in the inner corner of the eyes, creating a wide eyed, doll eyes effect.
The first thing that grabbed my attention with this product was the scent - a floral scented mascara? Very bizarre! Following application I was pretty impressed with the finish; thick, black, voluminous lashes. However, throughout the day, I did find that it began to transfer above and below my eyelids and the curl started to flatten- not a good look! On a positive note, the formula is extremely easy to remove (a lot easier than waterproof!), but the overall effect just didn’t ‘wow’ me.
I have come to the conclusion that if it isn’t broke, don’t try and fix it!
