Lancome Grandiose Mascara

Mascara is a staple product for me. I'm usually always wearing mascara, unless I'm hitting the gym. So when Lancome brought out their new Grandiose* mascara I knew I had to try it out! 






Lancome's Hypnose mascara is one my all time favourite mascaras so I had high hopes for this mascara. First, let's talk about the gorgeous packaging. Lancome really nailed it with the packaging design. I'd like to know who the genius was to add that rose. 

Now the wand is truly unique. The swan neck allows you to get to the roots of your lashes to add more volume. Also makes its super easy to get the the inner corner lashes nicely coated. I like how the bristles are different lengths, which helps with separating the lashes. 

I find that this mascara gives my lashes great volume but is just ok with providing extra length. Not sure why, but some days my lashes look really long, some days they just look ok. I find that the Grandiose mascara doesn't flake as the day goes on but my lashes do loose their curl after a long work day. I think to combat this curling your lashes before hand should help. I don't own a lash curler so haven't tested that out. 

Overall, I think this is a great mascara. If you prefer lengthening mascaras, you should skip this. I was kindly given this mascara to try out but the question is would I purchase this on my own? Probably not as I prefer the results I get from Lancome's original Hypnose mascara. 

What are some of your favourite mascaras?
