I haven’t tried a lot of Lancome products only a few over the years. One thing I was really looking forward to trying from this set was the mascara!
The set comes in gorgeous packaging with glitter around the edge, ooooohhhh. The box is also a really handy and sturdy beauty container by the way 😉 It contains the much talked and raved about mascara Hypnose Drama, a mini Khol eyeliner and a mini Bi-Facil eye makeup remover for sensitive eyes!
I’ll start with the eye makeup remover as I was really pleased with that. I have sensitive eyes so I’m always scared to try new eye makeup removers. This one however is lovely, I got no stinging at all and my mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow all came off effortlessly. No rubbing around for ages trying to get smudges off! I think I’ll buy this again!
After hearing rave reviews from bloggers about Hypnose Drama my expectations were high! And I can happily say I kinda love this mascara! It’s a good ‘un gals and worth the hype!
It did take me a few tries to get used to simply because I’m used to my own mascara which is a thicker consistency that the Lancome Hypnose Drama. This one was more watery/wet if that makes sense. It’s a really black mascara and works well with both one or two coats. No flaking or dryness by the end of the day either which is so nice as a lot of mascara tend to flake off after a few hours. I like the brush too as it’s sort of curved to get a nice fit into the base of the lashes
I think I’d wait till the mascara is on offer or in a value for money kit like this as the mascara alone is €25, a lot more than my usual mascara which costs the same and does just as good a job. But this one is fab so I’d say I could be tempted 😉 The three piece set is approx €25 though so it’s a good bargain and at the moment debenhams have a similar kit reduced to €17!
On to the eyeliner which unfortunately with my sensitive eyes this one just didn’t agree with them 🙁 Within a minute of applying my eyes were watering and gone red and itchy . Also I found the eyeliner to be more on the grey side. I like mine really black. But it would be nice for a subtle daytime look or for people who don’t like that intense black eyeliner
Overall I think the set would be perfect if you have never tried any of these Lancome products or even as a gift to a friend, they’d love it. A very nice stocking filler and great value for money!
Is Lancome Hypnose Drama your holy grail mascara?
