Last Friday, I told you about the 10 make-up products I was lusting after and one of them was Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Eyes – the mascara everyone is talking about after it was revealed that Kim Kardashian used this on her wedding day (although I am sure she had added oomph with faux lashes)! Anyway, I was delighted to be sent one of these Lancôme babies for review and it has elevated into my current favourite mascara. I looked at the sleek black packaging admiringly for days before I could bare to open it. As every mascara-wearing gal should know, once opened, mascara has a short shelf-life.
What Lancôme Say
The cone shaped brush is carefully developed to assure the ideal load on each lash, even in the inner corner of the eye.
The exclusive Fibershine formula, enriched with nylon powders, offers perfect load and beautiful curve for seductive fanned out lashes. A must-have mascara for a volumised, extended, lifted lash look.
I’ve gone through a number of tubes of Lancôme mascaras in my time – I love Définicils – but this is my first time using a Hypnôse mascara and I have to say, it was love at first swipe with Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Eyes!!!! As you may recall from previous mascara reviews, I have short stubby Asian lashes, so I need a lengthening and volumising mascara.
This is what Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Eyes does for my lashes :-
Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Eyes claims to curl lashes too, but I need to use eyelash curlers beforehand – but the mascara keeps my lashes lifted even after 12 hours so that’s another plus! The conical brush tip is also a winner for me because it reaches the innermost short lash hairs and is great for my lower lashes too. There is a subtle floral scent associated with the mascara. I can only smell it during application and it doesn’t linger.
For me, 2 coats of mascara is ideal for a normal everyday look, but for full-on wide eyes look, 3-4 coats is required.
Lengthens, not clumpy, luxe packaging, coats lashes evenly, easily removed with make-up remover
The RRP $52 AUD means that it is pricey, does not curl my lashes
When I think of doll’s eyes, I picture big wide eyes with long lashes and using Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Eyes can definitely help achieve this look! It’s no wonder it’s my current favourite mascara!
