i didnt like this. it flakes and thats a no in my book
glo minerals waterproof mascara is a great one!
I forgot I had gotten this as part of a GWP a while back until I was reading some reviews on here, so I decided to pitch my 2 cents in...
For starters, to me, the formula is not too wet or too dry, but just in the middle, which I like. But the brush does tend to pick up a lot more product than it should, which makes it go on clumpy if you don't wipe the excess off it well. If you go to Lancome's website, there's a trick to putting this mascara on, & what you're supposed to do is use the flat side of the brush along the base of your lashes & zig zag it just along the base. Then you turn the brush to the round side & pull the product from along the base of the lashes to the tips, again, zig-zagging it as you go towards the ends of the lashes.
I've put on this mascara following their directions, & it does make a difference, but there are other mascaras out there that give me more volume than this does, & I don't have to worry about using the correct side of the brush. What I have found that works pretty good for me is if I use this just on the ends of my lashes after I have already applied my regular mascara, it gives just enough more length to them to make them pop.
I don't think it would be worth spending $28.
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.
