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.
LANCOME HYPNOSE WATERPROOF MASCARA (ALBERT ELBAZ COLLECTION) IN ACTION
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! :)
