I was admiring the long, defined lashes on one of my coworkers, and I asked her for go-to mascara advice. The word was Lancome, Lancome, Lancome. Enticed, I decided to try this baby myself – I love the long, separated, million-lashes look. This little wonder didn’t disappoint!
Length is definitely this mascara’s greatest asset. My lashes poked my browbone (I love that).
Excellent. This mascara found all of my teeny blond lashes and coated them individually, making them stand out.
Meh. It doesn’t really curl very much, but it doesn’t leave my lashes completely shapeless either. Who needs curl when you’ve got length like this?
My eyelashes looked thin but that’s the look we’re going for here – definition, not big thick clumps. This is about the HD, super-separated look, not the voluminous Katy Perry look.
The verdict: 8/10 – Beautiful length and definition, so if that’s what you’re going for, snag one today.
Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara sells at Amazon.com for $21.00.
Spoiler alert: I love these shadows! I got this Lancome eyeshadow palette as a gift with purchase with the shades Latte (off-white), Suntouched (beige-gold), Designer (shiny olive green) and Lezard (deep brown). The Latte and Lezard are matte, while Suntouched and Designer are shimmery (they call the Designer shade metallic).
These eyeshadows feel silky and luxe to apply, and actually stay in place, unlike the wealth of drugstore shadows scattered throughout my giant makeup case. There are tons of shades to choose from, too! They blend easily, have rich, intense color, and don’t bunch up in your crease. In fact, this might be my new favorite eyeshadow. *hides from the MAC gods who are no doubt throwing down lightning bolts*
The only problem I have is the price – $17 for one shade is pretty steep. (Not like MAC’s any cheaper…please forgive me, MAC! I still love you!) Man, I’m getting spoiled by this department store schwag. Will Maybelline ever be the same for me again?
