When John Lewis sent me a Lancome Hypnose Mascara to review I hoped my search would be over.
My first impressions were positive. The product is comfortable to hold and there is little smell.
I found that the first sweep of the brush was a little clumpy, there was too much mascara on the brush. I carefully blotted the excess with a tissue and didn't have to re-do those lashes.
Without putting the wand back in the bottle I was able to apply the mascara to both sets of lashes, top and bottom. The coverage was even. There was no further clumping.
The brush is long and thin and this helps you to apply mascara right to the lash line.
My eyes looked so open with just one coat. I don't normally wear black mascara, but I really liked this look. I may have to get one in brown too now!
For full-on glamour I tried adding a second coat, this was too much for me. I'm a minimalist when it comes to make-up, but for a special occasion I would consider adding more. Even with the second coat my eye lashes felt light and comfortable.
So, have I found that elusive wonder mascara? Yes, I think I have!
Lancome Hypnose Mascara is £20.50.
