Back to my quest to find the perfect mascara, then.
I’ve previously tried and tested:
Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Waterproof Mascara
Collection Volumising Mascara
Essence // The Lash Curler Mascara
Perversion Mascara // Bigger Blacker Badder
My favourite so far has been the Perversion by Urban Decay! It’s started to dry a little, so I opened this Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes mascara I bought a few months ago.
I must have about 5 mascaras waiting to be tested! I’m trying to use them up one by one in a bid to save a bit of cash.
It comes in simple black packaging, I really like the shape of the tube and the flower detail on it. It feels quite classy and sleek.
This is not a cheap mascara and costs around £22. The most I’ve ever spent on a mascara, but I got it on a sale for about £14 I think?
When I first opened it, I noticed that it has a very distinct smell. I’m pretty sure most mascaras don’t have a scent, but this one smells like face cream. It’s not offensive, just shocking. I have a fear this has the potential to smell bad in the future.
It led me to think though, does other mascara smell? Some went around sniffing a few more and some does smell if you put it close to your nose, but nothing as strong as this! Please have a wiff and let me know if yours smells.
Now I feel awkward. What am I doing again? Oh right, you’re trying to blog about a mascara, Corinne. Get on with it, you knob.
It claims to coat every lash with it’s wand to create a wide eyed look, without weighing the lashes down.
On application, I found that it didn’t clump at all and did help to separate my lashes while adding some volume.
I’ve got thin lashes, even though they are quite long – so I’m all for volume.
The mascara didn’t particularly help my lashes curl upwards, so I’m a bit at as loss as to why it’s described as weightless, as I didn’t feel it did anything different in that department.
All in all, it’s a pretty decent mascara. But would I pay £22 for it? No, I wouldn’t.
It’s back to the drawing board, I guess.
You can see pictures with it on my facial face below. Sorry for the close ups, but it’s just a face. We all got one.
Have you found your favourite mascara yet?
