Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara

Simply Marvelous

So I was in Whitstable over the weekend with two of my very good friends who reminded me that I needed to blog. I have been so super duper lazy with it but this product deserves some big shout outs! Holy smokes - it's the best thing since sliced pizza. A free tester came with the Tatler magazine for August (Cindy Crawford is on the front) but after realising how good it is I ran to the House of Fraser at lunch. The sales lady winked at me when I asked for it like it was some kind of secret that only we knew about.

Lancome has always been the leader in mascara as far as I am concerned. I have tried countless brands ranging from cheap to higher end but I always come back - they are the best.

This only comes in black just so you know. It has short bristles on one side to start building but then longer bristles on the other side to lenghten. It didn't clump at all. Came off easily with a wipe.

It's £21. It's not cheap but it will last as you really don't need to use too much. Remember to twist in the bottle - don't pump - that's how it dries out and bacteria grows!


  1. Good to see you back and thanks for the tip! I just finished my tube of Lancome - I forget which one. I went back to the old Maybelline I used to use. What a mistake. I always run out of all my make up at once. I see a big 'back to school' spend coming.

  2. Stac! Go and get this for sure! Christie and I had a long chat about mascara and we both agree that Lancome is the best.

    What is the best eye makeup remover? I can't get this cheap waterproof mascara off!

  4. Hi Dear - I still think baby wipes are the best and most gentle. Failing that - these are pretty amazing and soothing.
