Lancôme Hypnôse Custom-Wear Volume Waterproof Mascara

sobota, avgust 31, 2013

I finally found a worthy contender to my favourite mascara, which is Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Feline Black waterproof. I have very stubborn lashes that refuse to stay curled unless I use a good waterproof mascara. So far I have rarely been truly impressed by any, a notable exception being the HR one. That one ticks all the boxes, but it is so expensive. There was an offer for 20% off on all mascaras in my local drugstore and since it doesn't carry Helena Rubinstein, I opted for Lancôme Hypnôse Custom-Wear Volume waterproof mascara instead and I'm so glad I did. 


I had the regular Hypnôse years ago and I liked it, but found Dior's Iconic and Chanel's Inimitable a bit better, though I  only had regular versions of both. The design of the Hypnôse's waterproof version is the same as of the regular one's and it has the same classic brush. No fancy design, just a good old classic wand. 

The formula is on the dry side and also quite thick. It doesn't make the lashes clumpy except if I decide to really go for it (for comparison, HR keeps the lashes defined regardless of the amount of coats). It gives tons of length. Seriously, my lashes are touching my brows (I have small eyes and little lid space, but it counts). It gives a nice amount of volume, yet not quite as much as HR one, but it's more than enough for me. The lashes stay curled all day, just like with HR one and that's what is most important to me. Just for the formula, Lancôme gets my two thumbs up.
Picture of my lashes with no mascara is in this post.

Price-wise it's no cheaper than HR one. It's an eye-watering 32€ in my local drugstore, however, Feel Unique has it for a lot cheaper (25€ at the moment, while I paid the same amount with the discount). I still think HR is a bit better, but Lancôme is so much easier to get a hold off. If you're in need of a brilliant mascara that gives an almost hypnotic amount of length, holds curl all day and is easy to work with, I highly recommend it.
Have a great day!

  1. Ne vem, če lahko krivim maskaro za to, ampak tvoje trepalnice so noro dolge:)) Sem že večkrat slišala, da je to ena najboljših maskar, ampak žal je cena tudi temu primerna :/

    1. Hvala :) Če vsaj ne bi rasle navdol, ker če jih ne zaviham, izgleda kot da jih nimam.
      Če ne rabiš dobre vodoodporne, so tudi nekatere cenejše zelo dobre. Maybellinova Colossal se ji približa, samo imam izkušnje le z vodoodporno verzijo :)

    2. Jaz pa ravno ne uporabljam vodoodpornih. Moja najljubša je L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes, ker mi naredi veliko voulmna. Drugače pa moje tudi rasejo navzdol. Malo lash curler-ja in magic!-kot pri tebi:)

    3. Meni je tudi ta od L'Oreala zelo všeč. Ena izmend najboljših navadnih maskar :).
      Jaz pa če si samo zaviham trepalnice in uporabim navadno maskaro, se mi spet povesijo v manj kot minuti. Imam prav poseben sistem, da se obdržijo zavihane, ker drugače ni vse skupaj nič. Problem je v tem, da ker doma večinoma nosim očala in ker so moje trepalnice tako dolge se pač zatikajo in so začele rasti navzdol v vseh teh letih.

    4. Meni tudi ne ostane ravno:/ Ja dolge trepalnice in očala pa je lahko problem, ampak vseeno thumbs up za take luscious lashes;)

  6. Hi, I was wondering, how do you usually remove this mascara? I've recently bought it and I really like how it looks and stays throughout the day but I find it a bit difficult to remove it, even though I'm using an oil-based makeup remover, for eyes. I used to have the Bi-Facil by Lancome too but I don't have it currently, I was thinking if that would remove this mascara? But then I don't want to spend 30 € on one bottle only to find out it doesn't work! :P Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!

    1. I'm currently using L'Oreal's Gentle Eyes and Lips Make-up Remover, which costs 5 € and does the job well, and I'm also using L'Occitane's Immortelle Oil Make-up Cleanser (I use either, one is enough). Clarins' Instant Remover, which I have a sample of, is admittedly a bit better than L'Oreal's, but I'm living on a budget :D Maybelline's two-phase remover is very similar to L'Oreal's and I € cheaper :) Plain coconut oil should work as well :) All of these have been tried with the Lancome mascara :)
