Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara

I was quite excited to try this mascara as there’s been quite a lot of hype about it and I’m generally quite a fan of Lancôme mascaras. The shade that I have tried is 01 ‘Noir Midnight’, which is basically just a black one.

The tag line for this product is ‘Show Stopping Volume’, and I really can’t fault the mascara on delivering this. It adds so much volume and length- one of the best mascaras, if not the best, I’ve ever tried for this.

What I liked about this mascara is that it definitely made my lashes stand out and appeared to lengthen and thicken them. It stayed on all night and did not need to be reapplied at any stage. It certainly has a dramatic impact and makes a huge difference to my lashes and whole eye makeup look.

What I did not like about this mascara, is that it was a little bit clumpy and heavy to apply. It’s hard to put my finger on exactly what is making me hesitate about saying I love it, but I think it is down to this.  

Overall, I did like the Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara and was really impressed by the volume it added to my lashes; it would be great for a dramatic eye look on a night out. However, it may be a little too heavy for me during the day.

Has anyone else tried this mascara? Or are there any other Lancôme mascaras that you can recommend?

Price for a full-size mascara: £21.00 (The one I have tried and shown in the picture is a sample).
