Beauty Review: Lancôme Hypnose Star Mascara.


When it comes to makeup you should know: I'm all about the lashes. Long, fluttery and full of volume is my go-to eye look. And for the longest time I've never strayed from my trusty Chanel Le Volume De Chanel mascara, however recently, I decided the time was nigh to try one of the other mascaras floating around in my makeup collection. 

The Lancôme Hypnose Star mascara is a favourite of the likes of Kylie Jenner, who, let's be honest, always has the most beautiful eyelashes. Lancôme claims that this mascara will add volume and curl to any lashes, which is great because while mine have natural length, they certainly lack in the volume department a little. 




The Price£22.50

Quick Picks:

The packaging: 5 stars

The product: 4 stars

Value for money: 4 stars




First things first: the packaging. I love it! I think the curved shape of the tube is really pretty and unique and certainly has a high end feel to it. Which coming from Lançome isn't really surprising. The brand absolutely exudes sophistication yet retains that girly feel us beauty bloggers love so much. As you can see above, I've given it 5* for packaging as I really cannot fault it. 

Now onto the product itself. As I mentioned earlier, I am lucky enough to have fairly long lashes which means, for the most part, pretty much all mascaras do something for my eyes. However I do have to say that I am a particular fan of this one. It definitely lengthens and adds volume from the roots which means it gets the Lily Seal Of Approval, however would I say it's my number 1 all time fave mascara? No. I'm still sitting on the Chanel train, unfortunately, though this was a lovely product and I'm definitely going to continue using it. 

In terms of removal, this mascara comes off easily with makeup remover or micellar water. I don't tend to use waterproof mascara anymore as I find it makes my lashes super brittle, so if anyone has used that version, please don't hesitate to leave a comment.

  2. I've tried this in the past (well not the 'star' one, but a similar one, totally forgot which one haha) and found it made my eyelashes so long and fluttery! - Although It did tend to smudge alot under my eyes, I adore the packaging on this one!! xxx

    1. It's really good! I wouldn't say it's an absolute wonder product - for that I'm always going to go back to my Chanel - but it's pretty darn fan nonetheless xx

  5. The wand on this mascara looks fantastic! My lashes are on the shorter side and don't have much volume, so I am always looking for new mascaras to try that will give me that full-lash effect. I have a sample of the Hypnose Drama that I have yet to test out, so this has inspired me to pull it out and use it. Thanks for the review!

    1. Ooh yeah I'd give it a try! My lashes are fairly long anyway but I still noticed a difference in terms of lengthening with this product. However it claims to be volumising - which it definitely was - so that might help as well! Hope you like it! xx
