Lancome is one of my favorite mascara brand of all time. I bought my first Lancome mascara years ago and since then I got hooked onto Lancome mascara for it’s ability to add length and volume into my short lashes. So when I heard that Lancome is launching a new mascara, I can’t wait to try it for myself! So here’s some information of the product and you may see my review at the end of the post.
The first reaction I had when I look at this mascara was “OMG.. the rose is so pretty”. I love how the tube doesn’t look boring at all, it has curves and the pretty little black rose on top of the mascara.
The First Swan Neck Wand
This is where it gets exciting! The applicator for Lancome Grandiose mascara has a unique shape where it bends and is claimed to be able to lengthen, curl and give volume to your lashes. Lancome recreates the applicator in a swan neck wand with 25deg bend to make sure that it reaches all the edges of my lashes and to the root.
A cutting-edge precision brush
Grandiôse allows for optimal formula adherence and glide from the very first stroke. Small in diameter, it is designed to extend and lift even the shortest lashes, creating a sensual curve and a perfectly open full and even lash fringe. SThey are seen in two sizes and are arranged like an open flower head, grasping and coating every lash from root to tip while ideally separating. Mascara application is precise with no smudging on the lid.
An ultra-black formula
Combined with a color-amplifying polymer, the ultra-black pigments of the Grandiôse formula form the heart of its incredibly dense black color. It also enhanced with flexible polymers for silky long-wearing curl to help the formula holds for a long time. Lancome Grandiôse has included some native rose cells for beautified lashes leave lashes looking suppler, softer and more resistant.
Performance and Eye Swatches: Review
I must say that this mascara does its job best to give volume to my lashes. In only one coat, I can see how it gives volume to my lashes instantly. To lengthen my lashes, I would add two to three coats to my short and droopy lashes to make my lashes looks longer. In terms of curling my lashes, I honestly feel that it doesn’t do much to my lashes. My lashes is short and droopy so I have to make sure I curl them well before putting my mascara onto it.
The formula of Lancome Grandiose Mascara is rather wet, so I have to make sure that I leave it dry for few seconds before putting another coat. Since this mascara is not marketed as a waterproof mascara, I can see some smudges after putting on this mascara for 2-3 hours.
The pictures above shows how Lancome Grandiôse adds length and volume to my lashes. In a nutshell, I think Lancome Grandiôse mascara has helped me to apply my mascara evenly without leaving a single lash. Its swan neck wand is truly unique that it makes application so much easier and reaching out to every corner of my lash. Grandiôse does its job best to adds volume onto my lashes – it makes my lashes looks fuller in just one coat. The only thing I wish about this mascara is the smudge free formula. I find that this mascara smudge on me after 2-3 hours application.
