Review: Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lash Effect Mascara

Hello Everyone

Hope you all are doing well and are happy and healthy. 

If you want to sport wide-eye make-up and want your lashes to have exceptional doll like length and volume then Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lash Effect Mascara is for you. 

What the company says about this mascara?
Lancôme's most flirtatious lash look. A volumized, extended and full lash fringe for a wide-eye look. 

A new, unique, cone-shaped brush provides an extremely smooth and clean application, precisely defining even your hard-to-reach corner and bottom lashes. Combined with the exclusively developed FibreShine formula, it sculpts, curls and load each lash for the ulitmate shiny lash fringe. Lift and thicken every single lash without weighing it down. Push up your lashes for your most flirty, wide open look. 

This mascara delivers every single property which the company claims, ultimate long and thick lashes with a lift, which instantly widens my eyes. I am in love with this mascara and regretting of not trying it before. 

It comes in a sturdy and a nicely curved fat black tube with floral print on it. Absolutely love how gorgeous the packaging is. 

Here's a close-up of the conical brush, which helps is covering the tiniest lash in the most difficult corner of the eye. Some people complain that the thicker end is too thick, but, I have no problem with that. I think it's appropriately thickened at the other end. 

The formula of this mascara is not to thick nor to thin, but absolutely perfect to get the perfect volume and length. It separates and covers every single lash without clumping. The company also claims about the curling property, but, since my lashes are naturally curled, I am not sure about this property, but, it definitely gives a nice lift to my lashes and make my eyes look more wider and defined. Here is the side by side picture to show you the effect of this mascara:

I have very thinly smudged a black eye pencil in outer corner of the upper lash line. You can very clearly see how beautifully the mascara has defined my eye. 

I get this effect with 2 coats of this mascara. My longest lashes in the middle had already started touching my brow bone. 

It lasts whole day long on my lashes and doesn't smudge or budge, unless I am crying or something. I have to actually use a make-up remover in the evening to take it off. 

The only property which could be a con to those with sensitive nose is that it has mild rose fragrance. As soon as you open the tube, you sense the lovely rose scent. It is not a con for me, in fact, I quite like it. 

INR: Rs. 1650/-. expensive for a mascara but it does what it claims. Worth it, if you are ready to splurge on a mascara. 

I have been using Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara for like more than 1.5 years as it gave me the perfect volume and length. Probably my all time favourite mascara. But, I was getting bored of buying and using the same product and thought of trying out a high end mascara, which I haven't for a really long time. I always wanted to try Lancôme's Hypnôse Doll Lash Effect mascara for what it claims. As I have naturally thick,  long and curled lashes, I always love to emphasize them. I am extremely happy that I bought this mascara. I feel it is way better than my Revlon Grow Luscious mascara. I am now waiting for Lancôme to launch the star mascara in India, which it says gives show-stopper volume. By that time will try the Hypnôse Drama Mascara. But, I will definitely keep buying the Doll Lash Effect Mascara. 

I hope the review was helpful to you. 

Have a great remaining week. 

Lots of love
