THE VERDICT:

If you'll ask me what pricey mascara brand to recommend, I'd say Lancome. (Chanel comes in second) Why? Because it was the first mascara brand I have tried, and my first love, Lancome Virtuose, made me realize that I can magically amp up the volume of my lashes artificially even if I wasn't naturally blessed with it. I have always wished for thick lashes, and mascaras make that dream come true for me everyday. Lancome has opened me up to this possibility.

It originally comes in a black tube, but if you want something cute, you should grab this- the Albert Elbaz limited edition version.

Comes with a traditional wand. The wand can volumize, style, and lengthen all at the same time. Mascara's consistency is semi- creamy and it works very well with the wand, and sets efficiently giving you time to even out the coverage.

This is a zero clumping mascara and you can definitely layer it on. In terms of volume, nothing beats Lancome Virtuose, but the nice thing about this product is it gives you a well- styled, fanned lash look, as if you're wearing falsies and just like the ones in magazines. I'm also loving the thicker and amplified strands I get from it. It stays mightily all day sans crumbling and smudging, and needs an oil- based makeup remover to take away.

Oh I know, the issue here is the price. The thing with Lancome's mascara is, they have longer and better shelf life, about 6 months maximum without smelling funky, and it gets better as it ages. Most of my Lancome mascaras are still alive around the 7th or 8th month and by then, I use them on my brows. :) So now you know what pricey mascara brand to invest in! :)

  7. It's really nice, and the packaging is fab, but for me, if I can get the same performance from a drugstore brand rather than spending almost 2k on a high end product, I'd rather not splurge! Hehe! :))
