One of the worst mascara's I have ever used. Clumpy mess. Smears like crazy, takes forever to dry & does NOTHING to give volume. Would not use if given for free.
I had a sample of this and didn´t like it. I don´t aim for a overly natural look, I expected this to give some volume and length at the same time. Somehow it did both, but it never managed to look good, because it fattens up each lash to the point that they stand there like broom-bristles, not very elegant, no nicely "fanned out" fringe of lashes, and definitely not subtle. I always had to follow up the application with using a clean mascara wand to separate lashes, fan them out and take away a bit of the residue. Not the right product for me.
Reviews for this mascara don't seem to be the greatest. Surprisingly this mascara seems to work for me. I am a regular user of Lancome Hypnose and I like that formulation. I have received numerous samples of Hypnose Star during Lancome's GWP events. When I attended a Lancome make-up event this past summer I decided to purchase the full size
product. I really like the brush, it seems to reach every one of my short Asian lashes!
Hypnose Star's formulation seems to be drier than the regular Hypnose formula which I find to be a wet, creamier consistency if that makes sense. I also love the fact I don't experience any flakiness or smudging and it lengthens my short lashes. I would purchase this mascara again!
I had two samples of this and have been using these two mascaras for 7 months. I like that this does not smudge or flake on me and this gives me a good amount of volume. What I do NOT like is that it does not hold a curl, in fact after I curl my lashes and apply this, my lashes droop. It also does not give me length. I would not purchase this. The mascara wand is like a xmas tree and the formula is on the dry side.
love this mascara!gives a good amount of volume and length!
I had such high hopes for this mascara, having loved the original Hypnose. Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed with the performance of Hypnose Star. Not only did the formula flake, but it also left an unflattering smudge under my lower lash line (I applied on my top lashes only!) This product is a definite TOSS.
Bought on eBay to replace my Hypnose (the standard one) thinking it was waterproof and they sent me the non waterproof version.
I decided to try it anyway and while it's not terrible, it doesn't really defines the lashes for me. It doesn't hold the curl (as it's not waterproof, duh) but it doesn't make my lashes completely flat either (I always apply very sparingly and wipe the excess off the brush in a tissue).
It's not horrible, but it's not for me, as I don't care about volume. If you want definition, I would not recommend it.
For all the hype that this mascara received, it did not deliver at all. I have asian monolids, so I need a mascara with lots of curling power that won't smudge on my lids. This mascara did neither of those. It's a very wet formula, so it weighs down my lashes even if I apply a single light coat. Did not see any sparkle or shimmer in the product as its advertising suggested. I think this mascara only works for people who are already blessed with long, full, and luscious eyelashes, otherwise I would not recommend and definitely won't buy again.
This mascara holds a curl all day and adds volume. But it clumps very easily. I have to be careful not to layer too much--which is kind of the point of using a voluminising mascara, right? to build up layers of fluffy lashes?
It is waterproof but not smudgeproof. It transfers onto the skin beneath my eyes as the day goes on. I've had mascaras that don't budge at all even in this singaporean humidity.
Bottom line is I will not repurchase, given that there are good drugstore mascaras out there. If I wanted to splurge, I would reconsider Diorshow, which separates lashes a lot more.
omg, this mascara is AMAZING!!!! i have never ever come across a mascara that is so clump free and held my lashes in a curl for 12 hours! i am very impressed with the long-lasting curl effect of this product. the brush is in a cone shape which i find to be very convenient in coating my lashes layer by layer, since it allows me to brush every lash at each angle. so happy with this, will definitely repurchase! <3
