This month, the company launched updated versions of its Hypnose range, and I’m going to do a quick full-day test-try to let you know how it works, and who it would work best for.
Because the limited edition heart-shaped white Alber Elbaz packaging is super-cute, but if the juice inside isn’t worth your time, then it sure ain’t worth your money no matter how cute the tube is.
Version tested: Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Waterproof (2013 updated formula)
Formula: Medium-dry. I find this similar to Diorshow and L’oreal Voluminous. That means it will get the formula on your lashes relatively fast, but you don’t have a whole lot of time to slowly work with it and build it up. Waterproof mascaras do tend to be slightly drier than their regular counterparts.
Feel/Finish: Quite stiff. The good thing is a stiff mascara is going to hold curl a lot better and a lot longer. The bad thing is some people don’t like a stiff mascara and want their lashes to still be quite soft and flexible after mascara is on.
