I was convinced by the SA to buy this when I was in HK, silly me. I really don't think this lives up to the hype at all, it seems like a pretty average mascara. The shape of the tube is kind of funky but I found it hard to manoevure after using the Amplicils for some months now. The formulation has also dried out super quickly. I only paid $20AUD for this, so I suppose it sort of redeems it a little, but it really doesn't do anything.
I think this is a good mascara but i thought it would be better. It made my lashes better than any drugstore mascara would, but still not that great. It didn't give as much volume and length as i thought, but it did seperate my lashes quite well and my lashes never got stuck together. overall this is a good mascara but if you want your eyelashes to be more noticable, then go for something else.
I bought this mascara because there are lots of raves on the board, but i'm really disappointed. im have meduim length and thin lashes. and i want them look long and volumised without clumps. this mascara is really clumpy and it needs lots of combing even after that it doesnt give a clear look. i have a pic in my profile, 2 coats cils booster and 2 coats hypnose wp, as you see it does nothing spectacular to me. i have had a shower with it and it stayed very well, and it comes off quickly with bi-facil. and it doesnt make my lashes brittle when wearing it or when i remove it. people say that i'm using it wrongly, nope i tried every way. i'm not going to buy again but i will finish this tube. i honestly dont know what to buy next.
I am not sure why this mascara didn't get better reviews. I got fed up with cheapie drugstore ones that dry up and flake, and decided to try this. As it happens, the first day I used this mascara ended up being a total sobfest and Hypnose Waterproof saved the day! No signs of damage whatsoever. The stuff stays on your lashes (as opposed to traveling all over my face which other mascaras always tend to do on me) and gives my lashes curl and volume. The only downside is that it's a tad hard to remove, which is why I am giving it 4 lippies instead of 5. I will buy again for sure.
Blech. I used this a few months ago when I went out of town to visit friends, and it was clumpy, gross, and left my lashes very spidery (like another reviewer said, I looked like I had 5 or 6 lashes in clumps). I didn't bring a makeup remover with me, so when I got home several days later, it was still on. Good, right? Noooo. I scrubbed and scrubbed my lashes to death with my eye makeup remover, and it still wasn't completely removed. Today I gave it another shot, and I am sad to say it hasn't gotten any better just sitting in my drawer. It dries way too fast to apply multiple coats or to try to comb out the clumps. The mascara just sits on the brush in clumps as well, which I think is part of the problem, so maybe I'll try a different brush with it. The only good things are the blue color and the fact that my lashes are pretty long, but those don't warrant a repurchase.
This mascara is pretty good, holds the curl, makes my lashes thicker and doesnt flake. The only downside is that it does smudge a little by the end of the day.
I've tried a lot of mascara brands before - L'oreal, Maybelline, Estee Lauder, ZA, Fasio (by Kanebo I think), Shiseido, etc... but they ALL either smudged on my by midday (I live in a hot and humid climate), or clumped like mad. Lancome Hypnose is my saviour....no clumping, no smudging....i'm smitten! :)
Love this mascara! I thought Diorshow was good but this mascara beats it by a mile. Even without a base or an eyelash curler, my lashes look great. It lengthens and amplifies, thought it could use a bit more oomph in terms of volume...but then again, I've been looking for super duper volume which no mascara has given me. Hypnose is by far my favorite alongside YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils. The black is gorgeous, it holds the curl all day long and no smudges, unlike Diorshow's waterproof equivalent! I've gone swimming with this and I was impressed to see my lashes still holding up with no raccoon effect. I would repurchase this without hesitation.
I am at the end of my second tube. I have it in blue and I love the color. It holds curls REALLY WELL if you have a good curler to prep your lashes with to begin with. However, it does clump and make your lashes stick together so you look like you have 6 or 7 really thick lashes, like in cartoons. I would like to try something else, but I dont know how many waterproof blue mascaras are out there..
I went away from this mascara for a while and used Max Factor Lash Perfection (which I like a whole lot) because it was so hard to get off and there were clumping issues. I have short, very thin lashes and mascara smudges on me like nothing else. I went back to Hypnose because I read in a magazine of how to properly apply it and I'm very happy thus far. You need to let it briefly dry between coats and don't run the brush over and over for one coat. Basically, my routine is to start with my left top lash move onto the right top lash, then the bottom right lashes then the left bottom lashes and then start the circle all over again. I love that I can build it up with several coats and the clumping issue is not such problem anymore. Overall I'm pretty pleased.
