Meh. Not bad, but I could buy about three Maybelline Great Lashes for the same effect and the same price.
I got a sample of this recently when I purchased a skincare product from Lancome. I was excited to try it seeing as many people seem to talk about Lancome mascaras. First off, let me first say that I want my mascaras to volumize my lashes, make them slightly longer, hold my curl, and not run down my eyes. For this particular mascara, here are my 2 cents:
I have pretty straight lashes so I need a mascara that will help keep them curled after using my eyelash curler. This did not do the job! The formula is very watery that it weighed my lashes down. So I decided to curl again afterwards, which is no biggie to me. But, this turned into a spidery sticky mess. I don't have many lashes but with the right mascara, my lashes actually look full. However, this would clump them together making it look like I only had 5 or something! It made it seem like I only had a few lashes compared to many. Totally not the look I was going for.
My definition of volumizing means not only making the lashes darker, but also tends to "fan" them out to make it seem like I have a lot more than I really do. This mascara did NOT do that. It almost made it look like my lashes were farther apart, making them look fewer and sparser. It did, however, make it look darker. Just not my definition of volumized.
This also did nothing to make my lashes longer.
All in all, I'm glad I got to try this without having to buy it. It would have been a total waste of money. Asian babes who sounds like you have the same type of lashes I do, be wary of this mascara. I will NEVER buy this.
This is my favorite everyday mascara. It does tend to slightly smudge after a long day after work and easily comes off with water. It separates lashes very well and adds lil bit of volume and length, not enough to be dramatic. I wish it came in a darker black tho. I have purchased this mascara 3 times already and will buy it again.
good mascara. not too thick, goes on easily and stay on put. it does smudge a litter bit at the end of the day but after all it's just a little bit and it's easy to wipe off.
i bought it from Sears Canada and they don't have deep black in the store. so i bought the black and ended up not liking it too much. it's not intense enough. therefor i would be buying it online next time. and it's even cheaper.
one thing you should keep in mind if you are looking for a mascara that would give you a dramatic look then you might not wanna go for this one. caz this one gives you a soft natural look.
Edit: I'm still using the same tube. Yep, after all this time it still hasn't dry up yet. Seems to me the mascara has improved. It won't smudge anymore and holds the curl better now. Very happy with it :) and I started to like the Black better because it gives me a softer friendlier look.
I've been using this mascara for over 10 years and have tried friends' mascaras but this is stil BY FAR the best!! I highl recomend this product.
I LOVE this product. Deficils and hypnose are both great mascaras from Lancome. The only problem I have with them is that they dry out quickly. 1 full size tube of mascara will only last me 1 - 1 1/2 months because it gets too thick.
I've tried other brands that you can buy at Sephora ranging from $20-$30 CAD a piece, but I just keep going back to lancome!
This mascara was alright. Pros: It's jet black, lengthens, doesn't clump, creamy application, and lasts. Cons: Doesn't separate lashes, product isn't thick enough, and makes lashes look stringy. Just so I didn't waste this product since it was a gift; I use my Maybelline Great Lash mascara as a base and then use the Lancome Definicils as a top coat for darker lashes and it seems to have done a good job. Overall this was a ok product If you use it as a top coat.
Its a very good mascara. I ve used ton of high end waterproof mascaras but used to end up with raccon eyes. So I was skeptical with this one, its not even waterproof, however I got it as a gift, so It worth a try.
I was impressed, it lengthens my lashes without spider legs, it doesnt really intense volume but fuller without any clumpy although I applied 3 coats. Lashes look strong and polish yet natural. They keep that way until I take it off, no more raccoon eyes as long as I curl my lashes well. Sometimes I dont curl lashes and notice a bit smudge but not much annoying.
The brush is very convenient to touch any shortest lash at the inner corner, the color is black enough but in the tube it looks a bit greyish which comes off easily with any oil remover.
As Lancome claimed, This Definicils mascara more about lengthen and shaping lashes than volumizing, so if u want a drama look, it might not be. But for day work, shopping time, school...go for it!
This product is very good at showing the length of my lashes without making them appear clumpy. My lashes are quite long and dark but the ends tend to be lighter. This is a very good mascara imo.
If you are going for the "Raccoon Look", then I HIGHLY recommend this mascara. I was sooo excited to get it, only to be let down. No exaggeration, within 2 mins of putting it on; it began blackening my eyes. HORRIBLE. I will say that it does lengthen my lashes, but whats the point? I immediately exchange it for the waterproof one and I see a big diff.
