Love it: Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-à-porter mascara


I’ve always loved Lancôme’s original Hypnôse mascara, pretty much from the day it launched. And while there have been several follow-up versions – as in Doll Lashes, Drama and Star to name but a few - I always considered the first to be the best for my needs and went through tubes and tubes of it as a result!
Then along came a sample of Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-à-porter (launching in New Zealand in February) and WOW. They call it a “cashmere sensation volume mascara” and as a fan of a) cashmere and b) great mascara, I have to say I was intrigued.
Its main features are:
* First ever Hypnose elastomere brush, for super soft, gentle application
* Flexible head for precise application
* Soft brush with 306 bristles to comb through lashes
* Shorter bristles coat lashes from root
* Longer bristles stretch out the formula to the tips
* Even and generous application
* Melt in cream texture
* Smudge-proof formula
* Latex adheres to the lashes in a smooth film
* Light supple finish on the lashes
* Enriched with exclusive Lancome Native Rose Cells extract softens and densifies the lash fringe
* Subtle rose fragrance
Impressive! So far I have found the brush really easy to use and it helps to curl up my lashes really nicely - no curlers required even with very straight lashes like mine. It is also easily buildable, and the formula is a true jet black and super dries fast. If you get any on the skin above or below the lashes you can just shift it with a cotton bud once it’s dried, but so far I have had zero fallout – claps to that!
I love that it feels super light and comfortable on the lashes and that they stay flexible without a hint of crispiness, despite having a significantly dramatic look about them with just two coats or more. It has been called “feather-weight yet maxi-effective”  - think about va-va-voom lashes that don’t feel like you have a lot of makeup on them.
I love the look of a faux lash even when a set hasn’t been applied, but also hate the feel of too much product on my eyes – as do my contact lenses! This therefore is the ideal solution and I can’t recommend it more. Thanks Lancôme!
Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-à-porter mascara lands February 22, 2016 and has an RRP of $59.00
