Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara
I have used many mascaras and they all give me the dreaded spidery lashes look. I was certain that this mascara was going to be the same but I was pleasantly surprised, it gave a very natural look. I found that 1 coat was enough, 2 didn’t do anything but just make my eyelashes more darker. Addressing what the mascara says it does;
Dolls eyes look - YES (very pretty and natural, innocent dolls eyes look which I loved)
Smooth formula - YES
Lash extension - Yes - think this links in with the ultrastretch complex
Separates each lash
On the dry side but not enough to complain, I would say just right
I found it hard to get the lashes in the inner corner of my eye but I think this was due to technique rather than a flaw so I can’t complain.
Didn’t use on lower lashes as I can never get them right but on the upper lashes it worked a treat
It advises to use a zig zag movement but I found this quite tricky and instead I used a slow rolling motion (as if slowly unscrewing something) and I found this helped lift my eyelashes and gave a more open eyed look.
Price - seems reasonable as I’ve tried more expensive mascaras which were totally rubbish and this one does actually do what it says

Nice but a bit pricey
I got this to test it out not long ago, I've used it two or three times now, and you can tell the mascara is an expensive brand, because it is easy to apply, doesn't drag the lashes and has a lovely smell (cheaper mascaras don't smell as nice!).
At first I wasn't sure if I liked it due to the cone shape of the brush, but then I'm used to straight brushes and it just took a little practice. It really fans your lashes and it's a light formula so your lashes look thicker but don't feel stuck together or heavy.
I am a bit put off by the price to be honest, it's more pricey than I would like. But I put that down to the brand, and I'm not always bought by the name of something, but this product is nice. I don't think I would buy it myself but I would recommend it, it's really lovely, and although it's not waterproof it doesn't smudge onto your face with wear, which is a plus.
It's a great mascara, but like I say I won't be buying due to price, which is rubbish because I really like it!

I was a bit skeptical about this mascara saying I could get "doll eyes" however now that I have used it I'm hooked! It creates great lash definition and I'm sure it has made them a bit longer too... would definitely recommend this to anyone who is a bit of a mascara addict like me!
