Time for the 6th mascara up for review on the mascaras/brow product in the Shoppers Drug Mart - Eye Studio Sampler, Lancome - Hypnose Drama, Instant Full Body Volume Mascara. As I had said in my previous posts, I am not sure if there is an expiry date on the coupon for the free mascara of my choice or not. If you want to see my thoughts on the Artdeco - All In one Mascara, you can find it here, Benefit - Gimme Brow is here, and Benefit - Roller Lash here, Clarins - Mascara Supra Volume here, and Clinique - Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara is here. There is a new Eye Studio Sampler for 2017, this set contains 7 mascaras as well, but instead of the Benefit - Gimme Brow it has a Stila Eye liner, another great product! If you are interested in seeing what is in the Eye Studio Sampler for 2017, you can check out Stash Matters Epic SDM Haul! It is out of stock online, but if you are interested, try your local SDM!
Inside the box you get 7 mascaras, and 1 Benefit - Gimme Brow, all in deluxe sample size. I love mini mascaras though, I am not the best at remembering when I opened a mascara, so I am sure that I have used full size mascaras past the recommended 3 month period. The deluxe sample sizes last me, if I like it a couple months. Which for me, who seems to have some-timers, (I forgot things sometimes!) is great! That way I am not using an old mascara. You are getting well known brands, Clarins, Lancome, Smashbox, Clinique, Benefit and, for me at least, a lesser known brand in Artdeco.
Lancome - Hypnose Drama
Let your eyelashes take centre stage with Lancome's full volume mascara, Hypnose Drame. It's curvaceous super sized brush for full lash contact creates high volume and thicker looking lashes in a single step. With every stroke, Hypnose Drama glossy mascara builds a stunning gaze, for beautiful, full body lashes. (Description taken from the booklet)
Another natural bristle brush mascara, which I like. The brush on this one has a curved shape, kind of like a letter S, which can be a little tricky to use. But once you figure out the best way to hold it to coat your lashes it gives a lot of volume! This mascara has a somewhat wetter formula when you first open it so you do have to be mindful of that, be careful about batting your lashes until it dries! Which by the way doesn't take to long at all, just a couple of minutes. I do find that I have to curl my lashes first, it doesn't give curl, but once I do that the formula helps to hold the curl for most of the day. This formula also doesn't smudge, no racoon eyes halfway through the day! Even though it doesn't smudge it was a breeze to remove at the end of the day, just a little micellar water, or remover of your choice, and it easily came off without having to rub.
If you couldn't tell from my thoughts on the Lancome - Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara, I give it a 5 out of 5! I think I may have found the mascara I am going to pick up with the coupon, that is as long as it isn't expired! I do still have another 2 mascaras to try out though, maybe I will like one of them as much or more?
Have you tried any mascaras from Lancome? What did you think of them?
