Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes


This is the mascara I've been using recently.
First things first - the packaging is perfect. Sleek, simple, sexy. The name sucked me right in because let's be honest... who doesn't want beautiful fluttery doll-like lashes? SOLD!

I got this at Sephora and I do not regret it! This is a great mascara. I haven't experimented too much with Lancome (the only ones I tried before were Courbe Virtuouse and Definicils, both of which were in the "meh" category) but I definitely like this better than the previous ones I've tried.

It's definitely more lengthening than my other mascara favourites - I tend to favour volumizing mascaras like L'Oreal Voluminous, YSL Faux Cils, MUFE Smoky Lash, you get the point! This one has volumizing action but it also adds a bit more length, focusing on the ends of the lashes and winging them out.

I figured I should photograph it with one coat and on UNCURLED lashes to show its full ability. It's definitely more lengthening and curling than Prestige My Blackest Lashes, and while that one adds more volume and depth, Lancome takes the ends to pretty and fluttery lengths due to its funky wand:


So... the verdict - I like! It would probably wow me more if it didn't transfer on me, but then again its because it makes the ends of my lashes so long that they inevitably touch my brow bone so I shouldn't complain. I've also had a viewer send me a comment on YouTube suggesting I layer this with Prestige My Blackest Lashes for a beautiful effect... I can't wait to try that now!

What mascara have you been adoring lately?

  1. I have to try this mascara. The last ones that I have liked have been Maybelline´s Cat Eyes, Reviva Labs Hypoallergenic and NYC Show Time mascara. All these are cheap mascaras. I have written about them in my blog also.

  9. The reason I love this mascara is the rosy unmistakable hypnose scent that unfolds every time you take the wonderfully-shaped wand out. xx

  12. Lancome has some great mascaras. Recently I've been switching on and off from Maybelline Full 'n Soft (one of my classic faves) and Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening (my new love). Both great! XO

  20. I have this mascara too, but I find Hypnôse Drama so much better, the Doll eues one falls down so quickly, I find myself with black dots under my eye because of it... do you have the same problem?
