I got an opportunity to try the new Lancome Grandiose Mascara from Influencer!
To be honest – I really didn’t think it would knock my socks off. I’ve been a hard core Smashbox – Hyperlash girl for about the last 5 years.
Oh My goodness! I think I found something I love better now!
The First thing I noticed was the wand is very different than any other mascara brush out there!
And I have never seen a mascara with a set of instructions and pictures before.
The brush is funky – yet when you look at the instructions and pictures, the brush wand makes functional sense.
It’s perfect to use and to make sure you get each lash!
I looked up online what the product sells for and it’s $35.00
I am used to paying $27.00 for my smashbox so this isn’t much more.
I gave it a test run – I was immediately impressed!
I have shorter eyelashes – I was not blessed with longer eyelashes ( My older siblings got the gene for it) So I aim to lengthen them or at least add volume with little to no clumping ! This is what I look for in a mascara – I found the only thing that worked till today was Smashbox Hyperlash.
But today is the day I fell head over heels for a new mascara! I really didn’t think this day would happen!
I didn’t at all fumble with the brush – I zipped around inner and outer lashes like it was nobody’s business.
What I found out!
- It Lengthened quite a bit
- No Clumps
- No need to curl my lashes to get the lengthened look
- One single coat is all was needed.
I loved that the brush did wonders on the corner and lower lashes – where I have the worst problems with most mascara’s including my beloved smashbox hyperlash!
Nor did I have to put on two – three coats to get the desired look with this product!
I’m not a Makeup girly girl – I usually just wear light makeup and even au natural quite often! This is perfect as when you put on this mascara – you don’t need to wear a whole lot of eye makeup to go with this on a every day office look. Or you can dress up the mascara with all the fancy eyeliner and eyeshadow you want .
I wore the mascara for 11 hours ! – No flaking and didn’t rub off – I’m sure I’ve rubbed my eyes at least once, and I don’t have smudged mascara anywhere on my eyelids.
Taking off the mascara was easy breezy – no eyelashes were lost in the process which is a bonus!
Lancome Grandiose Mascara just won a dedicated smashbox girl mascara over! I will definitely be purchasing this product again!
I’m not the only girl that fell in love with this product – I looked up Lancome’s website to see the price of the product – and noticed many positive reviews of this product.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
