I'm not an avid mascara fan. Shocker, right? Mascara is a daily essential for many, but I've never found myself very interested in using it. I've been using a MAC mascara for quite some time now, but it doesn't do much to my lashes except make them slightly blacker. So when I heard Tatler magazine was giving away a 2ml sample of the new Lancôme Hypnôse Star mascara, I wasn't too bothered about picking it up, particularly as I couldn't find the magazine anywhere in my area.
But, when I stopped at a WH Smith on my trip to the Harry Potter Studios I thought I'd grab a magazine for the journey, and I spotted Tatler. I won't lie, I wasn't impressed with the magazine but I am loving the mascara.
The brush is something I've never really seen before, it features both a flat and rounded side. The flat side is used to apply the mascara to the roots of the lashes, while the rounded side is used to add volume and body. More than one coat of the mascara can end up slightly clumpy, but it does the job exceptionally well. I have long-ish lashes, but they stick out straight rather than up. So the fact that this actually worked (and lasts all day!) really impressed me.
I am seriously going to consider buying the full sized mascara when I run out of the sample, despite the high price! However if you've found anything amazing for a fraction of the price please do let me know!
Have any of you tried this?
