Lovely Lashes with Lancôme Hypnôse

How do you know if a product is good? Sure, you can experience it for yourself or read rave reviews and hear good things about it, but I think the true test of a good product (or place) is time. Think of  acclaimed restaurants. More than likely, they have been around for a good few years.

In 2004, Lancôme pioneered a volumizing mascara for up to 6 times more intensity in the form of Lancôme Hypnôse. Ten years later, this thickening mascara has established itself as an uncomparable icon delivering fascinating eyes and an irresistible power of seduction. Happy 10 year anniversary Lancôme Hypnôse!

After it enjoyed huge success with its launch in 2004, various spin-offs were produced in the form of Hypnôse Onyx in 2007, Hypnôse Drama (for maximum drama) in 2009, Hypnôse Precious Cell (for ultimate definition) in 2010, Hypnôse Doll Eyes (for that wide eye look) in 2011 and Hypnôse Star (for instant glamour) in 2012. 2014 sees the launch of a brand new Hypnose in an extra black shade for a more intense gaze.

A history of Hypnose

What I like? Hypnose Fab fact

I have been using the new extra black Hypnôse and I am loving it!

 It provides my lashes with a pitch black, almost glossy look.

It doesn’t flake! I can’t tell you how that makes my heart sing. Most mascaras will leave you looking like a sad panda come the end of the day by depositing pesky flecks of mascara on your cheeks. Lancôme Hypnôse doesn’t flake ladies, I swear!

♥ It really grabs hold of every lash and defines my lashes (and holds the definition all day).

 It doesn’t flake!

♥  It doesn’t clump and won’t give you spider lashes (unless of course you apply 3 or more coats).

  It is the perfect mascara for office or daytime wear

 It doesn’t flake!

 It doesn’t flake!

 Did I mention that it doesn’t flake?!
