Love it: Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-à-Porter mascara


Quintessentially French but definitely global beauty brand Lancôme has long been associated with major innovations in the area of eye makeup, perhaps more so than any other name on the block. Amazingly, they were responsible for unleashing upon the beauty world the first bottled mascara and, more recently, the first double-twist stem.  
Their latest innovation is the amazing Hypnôse Volume-à-Porter Cashmere Sensation Volume Mascara, which contains a dash of colour and light volume adding just the right lift to your lashes. 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 an amazing 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
* The subtle rose fragrance that is associated so strongly with this beautiful brand
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. Its 306 bristles guarantee even and generous application, without overloading. The wonderfully soft brush gently combs the lashes. Its shorter bristles coat them with mascara all the way from the root, while the longer bristles stretch the formula out to the tips.
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.
It also comes swaddled in a jewel-like lacquered bottle in metallic gunmetal grey, so isn’t a tube to be hidden away!
Last but not least, as the weeks go by, its complex - enriched with an exclusive Lancôme Native Rose Cells extract - helps leave bare lashes softer and more resistant for a denser, thicker lash fringe. Sheer perfection and in store now.
