If you've been following my Instagram this month then you will know all about the Selfridges Enchanted Spells Beauty Advent Calendar that I have been opening each day so far. It's been jam-packed full of lots of beauty treats for me to get myself immersed in and some of them have been huge favourites already. This Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Mascara is definitely one of them.
I know I've raved recently about how there really isn't a need for spending loads of money on high end mascara when high street is just as good. But there's something about this product that really makes my lashes stand out. One guy friend of mine actually asked if I'd bought a new mascara because my lashes looked nice. If that doesn't tell you that this mascara is amazing, I don't know what will.
I think the combination of a perfectly curved wand which grabs every lash from root to tip, and the thickening yet lengthening qualities of the formula make this mascara a winning combination. However, one thing I have noticed is that it's perhaps not the easiest product to continuously work with when it comes to coats. Don't get me wrong - I think this product looks incredible with just one coat. But when I have gone back in a few times to separate the lashes from minor clumping, this has become a little tricky. On the other hand this hasn't really been an issue as the product pretty much nails the perfect look first time every time.
Plus, there's something about the formula which helps to hold a curl. My lashes look long and fluttering for the whole day which is something I absolutely love and always look for in a star mascara.
If I was pushed to find this product's weakness, I would have to note that I've seen minor flaking after a long day wearing Hypnôse Drama. But in reality, it's nothing I would write home about.
Over all I'm in love with this product. While I still stand by the fact that you can get perfectly good mascaras on the high street, if you were to treat yourself, this would be the one to go for.
