Review: Lancome Hypnose STAR Mascara

I have always been a fan of Lancome mascara, one thing about it that I especially love is how well it lasts on the lashes.

Their newest mascara, STAR ($33 CAD) also lasts quite well on the lashes.

It has a very attractive packaging, and although the outside has a sparkle to it - the mascara itself definitely does not.

It only comes in Black, which is typical when Lancome releases a new mascara.

STAR, intrigued me because of it's brush.
It has a thick side, which is wonderful for volume, and a skinny side which contributes to length.

When applying it, it's best to use the thick side at the base of your lashes, and once you shimmy up about half way, turn the brush to it's thinner side to create a curl and then to add length to the lashes!

I prefer wearing this mascara with a full eye makeup because it is dramatic. But for the purpose of this review, I just wanted to show the lashes.

Here is Hypnose STAR:

Bare lashes

Curled lashes

A coat of STAR

Overall I really like this mascara because of how easy it is to put on. Above is only one coat, and I find with many mascaras it takes quite a bit of quirking with the brush to get a desired lash look.

It doesn't chip, it holds a curl well, and it lasts basically all day.

If you're buying a Lancome mascara, you're going to shell out $30 CAD at LEAST.

Just remember the next time you're at a drug store that L'Oreal and Lancome are sister companies.

(Actually, Lancome is made by L'Oreal.)

Hope you enjoyed this review. Let me know if there's a product you'd like to see reviewed, or a makeup look you'd like to see (could be anything from every day, to a celebrity look!)

Thanks so much for reading!
