If you’ve been perusing beauty sites across the web lately, chances are you’ve heard about the newest mascara release from LancÃ´me – HypnÃ´se Doll Lashes Mascara, $25.Â LancÃ´me has an entire roster of mascaras with cult status, but their latest innovation promises to give volumized, extended lashes that’ll make a doll jealous!Â So did HypnÃ´seÂ Doll Lashes Mascara live up to its claims (BTW, I apologize in advance for my lack of under eye concealer in these pics, lol)?
Well, yes and no. It delivered on some, and on others…not so much.Â HypnÃ´seÂ Doll Lashes Mascara definitely gave my lashes the crazy extended length it promises, but the length was only visible when looking down at my lashes or up at them. Never straight on. Unless you’re tall enough to be drafted into the WNBA or short enough to shop at Baby Gap, the chances of someone seeing your lashes from these angles is highly unlikely.
I experienced some clumping and rather minimal volume with HypnÃ´seÂ Doll Lashes, as well. One coat gave my lashes clean and precise definition (Yay!), but with no real volume (Boo.). So I added a second coat (as seen in the pics above), but I was suddenly in Clump City, population 1. The thin tip of the brush is great for getting into those hard to reach corners of your eyes, which I loved, but the thick cone of the brush didn’t really help the volume/clump situation. Also, the rose scent of this (and all LancÃ´me mascaras) mascara should be mentioned. While some love it, you may want to think twice before using this if you’re extremely sensitive to scent in your makeup.
The bottom line? If the you wear mascara primarily to lengthen your lashes and prefer a natural, one-coat look, thenÂ HypnÃ´seÂ Doll Lashes Mascara may be just what you’re looking for! If you’re looking for volume and drama, and tend to wear multiple coats (like yours truly) then this may not be a match for you.
