LOVE !!! Best out. Favourite mascara, used to use lancome hypnose but this has come on first coz it lasts way longer is cheaper and very good quality. Pros: - fantastic length - shiny and DARK black - dramatic - buildable - wet formula which I prefer - volume!!!!! You need to use the brush properly. I swear I get compliments on the thickness. Everyone asks what mascara I use. - cheap compared to department store Cons: - none if you know how to Properly apply Application tips: 1. Use the flat side !!!! Most people use the comb but if you want volume too flat side. Hold it at the base of your lashes and push towards eyelid. Hold for 4 secs 2. GENTLY stroke up . This makes curl and let's tge formula stick to tips of lashes. 3. Let dry for 40secs. Its a wet formula so make sure it's nearly dry but not complety 4. Add 1 to 2 additional coats accordingly by stroke lightly upwards. Don't wiggle. 5. If you curl when dry your lashes will look fake :) but only on nights out coz it's damaging to do it all the time.
I really HATE this product. I have repurchased this heaps of times over time, making excuses for it. Like maybe I'm not applying it properly, maybe its a bad batch.I have friends who use this that absolutely adore this mascara. They use tubes and tubes of this stuff. It doesn't work for me at all. Things to take in consideration: - I have very fine but long lashes - My lashes have no natural curl - After using this product and other collagen mascaras I have discovered Im allergic to collagen mascaras. My eyes burned and went bloodshot red and swollen every time i removed this product. DONT USE IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE EYES. Pros: - deeply pigmented - defining Cons: - dries out VERY quickly - spider leg effect and clumping if you add more than 2 good coats - length is minimal -volume is minimal. - curl is minimal
So i received a sample of this stuff, amazing. Family, friends, strangers gave me compliments about how nice and False-like my lashes were. So....I bought the full sized product, DISGUSTING. Did not work, no length, no volume, only added a little colour and definition. Hardly any product stuck to the brush so it wouldn't even stick to my lashes without applying 5-6 coats, I'm serious. sound familiar?....GIVE IT A CHANCE!!! I continued using it for a week and a bit to see if it would get better as it costs $52 AUS, a lot of money. Im soooo happy with it. i can say its the only mascara i found that gets better with time. It gets thicker, and smoother and more gets on the brush. Pros: - Decent volume - Super defining, minimal clumping - Really good length - Heavily pigmented and shiny aka. doll eyes effect - Really good curling power, but drops slightly after hours of wear (only slightly, try curling before hand. dont curl when its dry) - Doesnt make your lashes crunchy Cons: - Flakes a bit (to prevent this apply additional coats QUICKLY while still completely wet) This mascara is volumising BUT the volume aspect isn't too dramatic. Its best for using if you want fanned out, curled, long lashes with fantastic dark, silky colour. MAKE SURE TO ADD MASCARA ON TOP OF LASHES!!! curling it outwards and applying lightly. This makes a big different on volume and drama for this mascara. Apply coats fast as it drys VERY quickly. best to do max 3 coats.
My favourite product!!!! And I have literally spent thousands of dollars in my lifetime on different mascaras. Im always trying new mascara, breaking the bank doing so, BUT if i had to choose one mascara to use for the rest of my life, I would definately choose hypnose. Pros: - It is a wet but smooth application (i prefer wet formulas) - very volumising with 2-3 coats - very lengthening - decent definition - very,very dark - easy to add coats for more drama, but dont coat when its dry! only semi-dry Cons (lets be honest, there are some) - the price (but its worth it for a good mascara) - curl factor is poor. i have fine lashes so it does weigh it down. i find curling when its completely dry give the BEST dramatic, amazing effect. - the final drawback is what I find, the formula drys quickly. i find this for most lancome mascaras and i LOVE wet formulas so those that don't mind mascaras a little dryer, it wont bother you. Will cause spider lash effect if not used properly. APPLICATION TECHNIQUES FOR THE BEST HYPNOSE EFFECT: 1. Wiggle the wand very slowly at the base of the lashes and hold for three secs and move upwards very slowly while wiggling, 2. Don't forget the coat on the top of the lashes lightly by curling the wand outwards then going through the bottom of the top lashes again. 3. Add additional coats VERY lightly and slowly.
