A Rave and a Rant Du Jour 2.4.10 Lancome Mascara's

Hola Beauty Babes, so I have a RAVE RAVE RAVE and a rant, well not really a rant, just something I did not love. What should I start with? Good news first or bad news? I like to start with bad, then end on a high note.

I was kindly sent a few mascaras from Lancome to try out. I used to wear Lancome Mascara a lot until i found my YSL faux cils which I fell in love with and never strayed for YEARS!

I will start with Definicils review. This is the one I really didn't like too much. I can see certain people liking it, just not for me. The formulation is semi thin and so is the brush as you can see below. I like a fuller brush so I might be biased. Onto to results, for me this was not a winner, it did a great job of separating each lash but I did not see a difference in length or thickness and I believe a mascara should do one or the other. However, I think someone going for a more natural eye than I like would enjoy this mascara.
Next, onto a mascara that I have been using EVERY day instead of my Faux Cils, which is pretty amazing because I am a die hard fan. Lancome Hypnose is pretty fab! This baby creates DRAMA! A seriously thick lash fringe. I love the fullness and thickness it creates. I wish the brush were a BIT fuller but I am very pleased with this mascara and will continue to use this. It really gives you a false lash effect when used with some black liner. Love that! One gripe? The packaging, it hogs up too much room in my make up bag!

Have any of you tried either of these? Any thoughts? Any Lancome mascara's that are even better that I should know about?

  1. I've tried both. I chucked out Definicils as I'd had it for far too long and I can't even remember what I thought of it. I think I still have Hypnose, and again I can't remember what I thought of it. Pretty useless today aren't I??!! LOL I'll try Hypnose again, if I DO still have it.

    I've worked my way through too many mascaras!

  3. Have you tried Hypnose Drama? It's one of my faves, alongside Mascara Singulier and Lash Blast (on light makeup days).

  8. I've never tried Lancome's mascaras before but I've heard that they are great. I'm loving my Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash mascara though.

  9. I use Lancome Oscillation and it's the best mascara i've ever used. A lot of people dislike the vibrations, but i think they really help with separation. I'd like to try some other lancome mascaras to see if the formula can get even better!
