If I am running late, which I usually am, and need to be out the door pronto, the one thing I always remember to put on makeup-wise is mascara. Voluminous and long lashes are the one thing that make your eyes look wide awake and on a Monday morning, as I rush to my nine am classes, and when I haven’t had coffee, mascara makes me look a little more human.
I’d heard raving reviews about Lancôme’s Hypnôse Doll Eye’s Macasra on the blogosphere and decided to pick one up for my self back in February. I had high hopes for this and I am very pleased to say I was not disappointed. It even made it into my July favourites as this was the only mascara I wore in July!
Lancôme claims that this mascara gives the lashes a unique volumised, wide eye look, while also individually defining lashes. This easy to use brush both sculpts and curls your lashes for the maximum lifted finish. And I agree! The packaging is so sleek and swoon-worthy but really it’s what’s inside this tube that makes me giddy! It has a very unique wand that really does grab onto every single lash and gives me a lot of separating and length which is exactly what I want. The closeness of the bristles on the wand provides a lot of volume, so I can build up long and thick lashes in about two coats and it’s a job well done!
The formula is all kinds of amazing, it doesn’t clump and is very long-lasting, and is the first mascara I’ve tried that doesn’t flake on me as the day goes on. It’s a rich, black colour that coats each one of lashes and gives your eyes a very wide-eyed look! I also find that when I do curl my lashes, it holds the curl really well.
Overall I loved everything about this mascara and I know that when this runs out, I will be going out to buy another tube! It really does live up to the hype, while giving you beautiful and luscious lashes. It is a little bit more on the pricey side, but I do think it’s worth every penny and the quality of this mascara is unmatched, in my opinion. If you do fancy trying this you could maybe get a sample first to see how you like it, but this one gets a big thumbs up from me! Happy Shopping!
