I have this thing with mascara… I love it!
It’s the one essential makeup must-have I just can’t, make that, won’t live without!
It’s fair to say that the Lancôme Hypnôse mascaras are among my faves. They just seem to get it right, better and better with each new version, and the new Hypnôse Volume-à-Porter, Cashmere Sensation Volume Mascara is without a doubt one fabulous mascara.
It’s the new Mascara for the woman who understands the power of her gaze!
In it’s jewel-like lacquered bottle, Hypnôse Volume-à-Porter Mascara maintains all of its mesmerising curves, updated in sleek gunmetal grey packaging.
In a single stroke it dresses the lashes in an elegant slick of volume, creating the blackest black, lushest lashes that still look incredibly natural and above all, feel comfortable!
For me, I have okay length lashes (although I wouldn’t mind them being a bit longer ya know), but they are dead straight with no curve – something I always look for in a mascara, since my lids face downwards, and I NEED the curve and the volume to open up my eyes.
This mascara does a great job at coating the lashes and giving each one a lift. It separates each lash evenly, without a single clump, but at the same time, no matter how much I pile on, my lashes stay comfortable and not sticky or spiky! Although, having said that I only felt the need to apply 2-3 coats.
The flexible head brush, which is Lancôme’s first ever Hypnose elastomer brush is so easy to use and really great for applying mascara like a pro. I especially love how easy it is to apply mascara to my lower lashes, as it gently combs the lashes as it coats.
It has a combination of longer and shorter bristles that are soft, so you can really get into the those corners of the lashes without poking yourself in the eye!
It takes a little while to dry, but once it’s on the lashes it’s swathes them in the smoothest, most comfortable film of lush, black mascara that stays put.
The hybrid forumla comprises a melt-in cream texture and a resistant smudge proof formula. And besides looking fantabulous on your lashes right now, over time,Lancôme’s exclusive Native Rose Cells extract helps to leave bare lashes softer and more resistant for a thicker lash fringe! Even more reason to use it every single day!
Available at all Lancôme counters in selected Edgars, Red Square, Stuttafords, Woolies, Truworths and Foschini Stores.
