Time for another Lancome mascara review! During my “What mascara should I review next?” poll, this mascara came in second so without further ado, check out Hypnose!
Price: 2 out of 5 ($24.50)
Overall: 4 out of 5
What it claims:“Dare to go up to 6 times the volume. With each stroke, the patented POWERFULL™ brush intensifies lashes from root to tip. Exclusive, fluid SoftSculpt™ formula, enriched with Vitamin B5, wraps lashes one luxurious layer at a time without smearing, smudging or clumping.” (source)
The truth:Lancome has another winner in my book!
What I didn’t like: It got a little clumpy dumpy around the second coat. But the good news is…you really don’t even need a second coat.
Overall: Oh Lancome…how I love thee. Let me count the ways! I am slowly but surely becoming a bonafide Lancome lady. I know, I know….I’m late. Why didn’t y’all tell me Lancome’s mascaras were SO amazing? With each one I try, I am just in awe. Hypnose is no different.
When I first pulled it out of the tube, I was kinda like, “Uh oh”. The mascara was coating the wand and looked a little intimidating.
However, my eyes deceived me because application of this mascara was relatively easy. The bristles grab on to the lashes and coat them evenly with mascara. Hypnose is unique because it really only needs one coat to perform well.
While it is intended to be a volumizing mascara, I found that it gave me great length as well. Around the second coat or so I did get transported to Clump City, USA…but I found a way to fix that problem!
….just apply one coat! A Clumps reader brought up a good point that often times we get in the habit of applying more than one coat. But sometimes…you really just need one. Cast in point…
A crazed mascara reviewer,
