Kawaii fashion is truly a hit nowadays. Here and there, you'd see a lot of girls sporting big- eyed contact lenses, sky- high and ultra thick eyelash extensions, and globs and globs of volumizing mascara--all of which are meant to emphasize eyes, and give it a doll- like effect. Who could blame them? You have to admit that having thick lashes is very nice. It frames your eyes and gives it definition in half the time, and sans the use of too much eye makeup.
Speaking of the Doll look, Lancome gave me a sample of their newest mascara called Hypnose Doll Eyes. It is an innovative mascara that combines length, curl, and volume in a sexy tube. It has the FiberShine formula, a Lancome- exclusive technology that adds a touch of gloss to your lash fringes.
Here's what the actual product looks like. Click READ MORE and check out my detailed review.
It comes in two shades: So Black and So Purple.
It also comes with the new cone- shaped brush, a specially designed brush that effectively delivers all of the mascara's benefits, and helps you coat each and every lash easily. I like it because it catches all my lashes, and imparts a significant amount of product in one stroke.
First coat- lashes look significantly longer and more defined.
Second coat- Lashes look fuller and longer
Best mascara feature: Gives your lashes a soft and natural look
I had to stop at the second application because I was already satisfied. The texture of the mascara is spreadable, and a little amount goes a long way. Its consistency is thick, mousse- like, and a tad bit wet, but I find that it dries up easily. Normally, I just apply two to three coats because it has a tendency to weigh my lashes down if I apply more than three coats. The glossy finish deepens my lash color. I've also observed that the gloss catches light and helps emphasize my eyes more.
It is long wearing, but I find that it has a tendency to smudge for a bit especially if you have very oily lids. But it's not the type that will give you raccoon eyes though. What I do is I use a matte eye primer and dry concealer whenever I'll wear this mascara to prevent it from rubbing off on my lids and undereyes. The best part is, it surprisingly comes off easily with warm water and cleansing foam. It's good because that means less tugging on your lashes and lids.
It's a very good product because it makes your lashes look fuller and longer, but without the clumpy and exaggerated look. If I would have to spend for lash products, I'd go for mascaras, as eyelash extensions and falsies are quite high- maintenance for me.
It's pretty pricey for a mascara though. But if you are looking for a great mascara brand, and don't mind paying a hefty premium, I'd suggest you take a look at Lancome's selections. Visit LANCOME PHILIPPINES on Facebook and check out their entire mascara line.
