Lancome has new products on the shelves this month. Where do I begin? Being the mascara connoisseur that I am, I had to try Hypnose Doll Lashes first. Hypnose is one of my top two mascara’s because it really gives your lashes a dramatic look, we’re talking camera and runway ready. The Doll Lashes formula is supposed to give you that bright-eyed, pretty doll look.
The first thing I noticed was the shape of the wand. Instead of the curved honey comb shape, it’s more of a cone design-narrow at the tip and widening towards the outer corner of your eye. As I applied the first coat it lifted my lashes creating the same wing effect that you see on the models. Very nice! I like how the wand reached to my inner lashes. After alternating with two coats (for day that’s enough) I was impressed with the results.
I love a thick luxurious mascara, and I felt that Doll lashes delivered that, while separating my lashes. Now here’s the catch, since the wand reached my inner lashes, I found it slightly clumpy. So I made sure to be thorough as I wiggled the brush through my lashes. Is Hypnose Doll Lashes worth the $25 investment. Absolutely! While there are some mass market brands that lift and separate, the design of the brush puts Doll ahead, not to mention that it goes on heavier than those drug-store brands.
Lancome also has some new skincare products. Visionnaire is Lancome’s new skincare formula that helps reduce signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. Bright Expert is a new product aimed at reducing hyperpigmentation specifically and Lancome says you’ll begin seeing results within four weeks.
Now the plus is that Lancome has a gift promotion beginning 9/13 where you receive a free gift when you make a purchase of $39 or more. That means when you invest in let’s say Visionnaire ($86) or Bright Expert ($65) you’ll get to choose from 3 face and eye creams, three eye-color palettes, lip color or pencils. That’s a deal.
If I hadn’t just started another product for hyperpigmentation, I’d give it a try. But check back with me, because I’ll definitely provide an update on these hyperpigmentation products based on my personal experience.
