Finding the holy grail of mascara can be a long and arduous process. I went through countless brands and many different mascaras before finally finding mine; the Lancome Hypnose Mascara in the shade ‘Noir’. This mascara is something of a miracle product, and I’ve rarely reached for another mascara (except for the YSL faux cils as a backup/alternative) since discovering it’s magic. (I apologise in advance for the crappiest quality pictures in the history of swatch taking, my iPhone is not having a good week)
This mascara ticks all the boxes. It doesn’t flake or leave those gross gritty bits under my eyes throughout the day, it gives full & thick lashes without clumping or looking too ridiculous and it lengthens my lashes to the extreme. I find that the mascara works best after the first week or so of starting to use it, prior to that it doesn’t seem to thicken my lashes as much. Which isn’t ideal, but because it performs so well in all other areas I don’t mind that much. I do have naturally long lashes, so I’m not sure how well this would perform on someone with shorter lashes than I; but if you do have short lashes and have used this mascara in the past I would love to hear what kind of results you had. The Lancome Hypnose Mascara in Noir can be purchased online for $29.50 AUD from Strawberrynet.
