As soon as this came out - I had to try it! I had always been a Diorshow blackout fan but I wanted to try something new. I started using this mascara and I have to say - overall I really love it! Pros - it really defines the lashes and definitely gives them drama. I love really black really dramatic eye makeup - so this is definitely for you if you're the same. The brush has a great curve on it that catches your lashes and really gives them volume.
The cons - I find that this formula dries out really quickly. I wasn't sure when I bought it the first time if maybe it was just that tube - but I've since bought about 4 tubes in total and I've found the same with all of them. When I say really quickly I mean less than 2 months - If you wear mascara every day it probably will be fine - I try not to wear it everyday because I find that it damages my lashes when I wear mascara too often. So for me - I would like a mascara that lasts 3 -4 months - I also find that applying more than 1-2 coats you definitely end up with spider lashes - and that drives me crazy - but that being said I just apply 1-2 coats and use a clean wand a few times and it's usually fine. Even with those two issues I really really love this mascara - Everytime I wear it I get complimented on my eyelashes.
This is a great mascara. Gives volume and length that does not smudge or flake. One of the best mascara's out there. Better than Diorshow in my opinion because I feel like I have to work at building Diorshow and Hynose works in just a few swipes.
Absolutely in love with this mascara. One of my biggest makeup pet peeves is mascara smudge under the eyes, I think it completely ruins a fresh eye look! SO when I decided to try this mascara I had high hopes, but was still skeptical. Now I'll never use anything else!. When using this mascara I NEVER experience flaking or smudging...Ive even slept in it (after a night out with the girls) and woke up to mascara that was still perfectly intact, in short, this product is HG. (I should note that I use this mascara along with the Lancome eyelash primer which also works wonders)
Love, love, love this product. My lashes have never looked better!
I'm crazy about this mascara! This is the first time I am this happy with a mascara so I had to share it. My lashes are rather invisible and very short, so normally I look for a mascara that would darken, lengthen and volumize my lashes. I also look for curl-holding but normally all of them droop my lashes down unless it's a indelible unremovable waterproof one like CG LB WP(which I hate to remove). This one gives me volume, length and carbon black pigmentation in about three swipes per eye. Of course the brush is rather hard to use without clumping but i just use a lash comb after I put on mascara. Everyone should own and use a good lash comb because no matter how good your mascara is, clumps are just waiting to happen. What I love the most about this mascara is the amount of volume and super black pigments it has. The formula is very gel like so I can get a lot on very quickly, which gives me big lashes that are very noticable, compared to the wimpy little peach fuss I have for eyelashes. I also love the fact that it has long fibers in so that I don't have to use an eyelash base (Shiseido's for example). My drawbacks for this mascara are: the fact that it smudges easily and the fact that it droops my curls. Those are the reasons why I didn't rate it a 5, but I have no problem with the perfume or the packaging a lot of people seem to be unsatisfied about. I dislike the fact that it will smudge and come off easily with water, but that also means that this comes off when I wash my face with facewash, so no other makeup remover is needed. That way you can either see it as a con or a pro. However I will never wear this while knowing that it'll rain outside. Compared to Diorshow I find Hypn˘se Drama gives way more volume and drama and works way harder. To obtain the same lashes I get with one coat of HD, I'll have to put on at least four coats of Diorshow. Since I have no time to build my mascara for 10min just to make it look good, I'd choose HD over Dior anytime. IMO It's a great mascara and I will keep using it with the help of a heated curler and a lash comb.
I used to love this product until it caused my eyelashes to fall out (after 2 years of using it!). I took off the product every evening before bed, didn't use the tube for too long, or anything. I stopped using the product and have had no problems since. They are test this product on animals, which is a huge turn off. I am now no longer using Lancome products.
i use the waterproof version since regular version mascaras do not hold my curl. if you want dramatic lashes, try this out. i usually like to accentuate my lashes and this does a good job of volumizing, not so much lengthening though. i am not a big fan of this bristle...it is chunky and it does clump up my lashes if i am not careful but i love how this mascara performs, it performs so well that it is a pain to take off! ii wish the packaging was slimmer, it is bulky.
This mascara is great for high impact lashes, with much volume, quite a bit of length, and deep black color. It almost never smudges or flakes during the day, which is exactly what I need. Well, who needs smudges....The only thing I have to take away one lippie for: In the beginning, the formula was quite moist and I needed to separate my lashes after putting it on so they fan out and don┤t look heavy or clumpy. After I wiped the wand twice though, I didn┤t need to do so anymore, I guess the brush was just overly saturated before. But still - that was a waste of product.
I really wanted to love this mascara. The formula is way too wet for me. The brush is some sort of hellish nightmare and causes my lashes to stick together like crazy. While the staying power is great and the length is pretty good, I just can't say it's worth the money. No thanks.
This is my hg mascara!! I LOVE it. It takes some practice to keep it from clumping or looking like spider lashes...but once you get it down...your lashed look amazing..like they look like falsies!! I used latisse for my wedding 2 years ago and my lashes got soooooooooooooo long. I loved them..but when I stopped using it a few months after...my lashed went back to being sooooo short. It made me super sad because I was used to long pretty lashes. Well this mascara gives me that back again!! Yay!!!
