My regular readers will know how much I love mascara and I just adore the Lancome range since my days working at the Lancome counter in my first pharmacy job many many moons ago. They are such good quality and I don't mind paying a little extra for them. I picked up their latest offering at Christmas as part of gift set. It came with the mascara (obviously), a travel size Bi Facils (Lancome's amazing eye makeup remover) and a Black Kohl pencil (you can never have too many black kohl pencils) all for €30. Bargain!!!
What makes this mascara so different to others is the new "Swan Neck" shaped brush. Lancome claim that "this new application technique will effortlessly create open full and even lashes because the high precision brush can grab lashes close to the root and perfectly fan them out, corner to corner".
So what did I think? This mascara grabs EVERY little lash including the annoying inner corner ones so if you have short lashes this is perfect for you. My first few attempts were a little bit fiddly but take your time and get used to the brush. It's easy to coat each lash from root to tip and this formula delivers on its promise of super lifted, fanned out lashes. And after a full day of wear there were no smudging or flaking!!
My only critique would be that once you apply a second coat things can get a little messy. My lashes tended to clump a little but nothing a lash comb didn't sort out.
Would I repurchase? Yes! I know it's a little bit expensive but in my defense some days my makeup can just consist of concealer and mascara. So when I find a mascara that makes my lashes look long, separated and fanned out I'm going to stick with it.
But don't take my word for it....Check out your local Lancome counter and ask the very nice people there to either give you a sample or try it on so you can see for yourself!!! It is available nationwide for €33.
So I hope you enjoyed this quick review...If there is anything else you would like me to try out just let me know in the comments below.
Until next time...Be Happy!!!
