Lancome Hypnose Mascara Review

Since blogging I seem to have amassed a ridiculous amount of different mascaras... from cheap high street ones to specialist high end types, and everything in between. My newest and current favourite though is the very impressive Lancome Hypnose Mascara

Despite the fancy shape of the tube, the want itself is quite unassuming. No weird wiggly shapes, random little balls or lumps, not made made of any unexpected materials - just short neat dense bristles. And I think this proves beyond doubt that you don't need any of those fancy gimmicks for a top-notch mascara. 

It's a slightly drier feeling formula than I'm used to, but applied easily and stayed put all day. I went to see the new How To Train Your Dragon film today (which means 'there were tears') and it didn't waver. Despite this, I didn't find the hard crispy eyelashes that I sometimes get from 'They're Real', neither was is it so difficult to remove.

My photo's aren't amazing - I'm forever in awe of people who can take really great photos of bits of their own face - but you can certainly see the difference a sweep of this mascara has made! If I had any concerns it's just that this was maybe a bit too dramatic for everyday day time wear - but it's an easy way of making it look like I've made an effort on those days I can't be bothered with other make up! 

what does lancome mascara look like on?

Priced at £22.50 on the Debenhams website, this isn't the cheapest - but you can make a significant saving by picking it up from Chemistdirect.co.uk instead for just £14.99, where you can also find a loads of other discounted beauty items!

  1. This is my absolute favourite mascara! It gives my lashes so much volume, I love it.

  2. Wow your lashes look great! I think I tried the Hypnose star and it was disappointing. At least you've found a place to get it cheaper :)

  3. I own Lancome Hypnose waterproof mascara (review coming soon on my blog) and I love it! I have to try this one too, because it seems even better!

  4. This does look pretty amazing! I also struggle with crispy lashes with They're Real! (not to mention the removal nightmare..) but this sounds like a great alternative, your lashes look awesome!
