Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara

I love this mascara! 

A while back I bought a eye liner and eye shadow set from Lancôme, at the same time I was able to get a gift set, with a lot of their items in it; face wash, mascara, make up remover, youth activating concentrate; Génifique, lip gloss, night cream among other bits and pieces for £23ish. I couldn't resist. 

Within this kit there was of course their best selling mascara; Hypnôse, it was in a tiny tube so it didn't last me very long, so today I thought I would treat myself. Seeing as where I work had 10% off and then I get my discount on top I really had to buy it.

It is marketed as Custom-Wear Volume Mascara, as you can build up the intensity of your lashes, without them becoming clumpy. Instead, you can go from 'subtle to sexy!

The brush is great, I love that it isn't huge, as it will actually pick up all those little lashes, and coat each one evenly. When I was building my lashes up, I put on two coats and it had already made a huge difference, even giving them a bit of curl, which I always enhance using my eyelash curlers. My lashes are the difficult kind that are naturally straight. 

This is one of the best mascara's I have used, as a lot of them are too thin and leave a lot of mess on my eye lid! Which is a pain when you just want to put on a quick coat before you go out. 
Overall I love this mascara, even more now that I have the full sized version and it will hopefully last me a lot longer! 

There are other kinds of Lancôme mascara's some of which give you huge definition; such as 'Doll Eyes' which will give you amazingly curled lashes and you don't need many coats. Maybe that's the next one I should try! 

Lancôme have a great range of products, from face creams to eye liners, they really do have everything you would need. It is expensive, the mascara coming in at £21 but it really is worth the money. I will always be a Lancôme girl, even if I don't have any money I will still lust over their products.


  1. Lancôme mascaras are so good! Haven't tried this one though, so maybe I will now!

    1. It is the best selling mascara they produce. Another plus point, even when I was cutting a rather strong onion earlier, I looked in the mirror to check how bad my make up had run. Funnily enough the mascara didn't run at all. It's not even waterproof. So it's gone that step further and is now perfect! xx

  2. I'm a Lancôme girl too! What I like most about this mascara is that it doesn't smudge over my face by the end of the day like lots of other brands do, and it's not even waterproof. xx
