Lancome Hynose Doll Lashes Mascara finally got released here in the U.S. I was eagerly awaiting its release ever since I read a review of it on Makeup For Professional Asian Women. Jamilla liked it a lot and it seemed like it was a really great mascara.
It comes in only one formulation, which is washable, not waterproof. This is perfect for me as I prefer not to use waterproof mascaras. I don't like having to tug at my delicate lashes to remove mascara.
I love the shape of the brush as it helped to reach the tiny lashes in the corner of my eyes. It also grabbed my lashes and coated it well without clumping.
Unfortunately, I ended up not liking this mascara at all. It did not curl my lashes and even when I curled it, it didn't hold my curl. My eyelashes are very stubborn so it uncurls very easily. Waterproof mascara is actually better for me since my lashes don't uncurl with waterproof mascara. Another reason why I didn't like this mascara is that it actually gave me panda eyes. Again, I wouldn't have this problem if it was a waterproof mascara but I haven't ever had a problem with any mascara smudging and giving me panda eyes. I didn't even apply it to my lower lashes but it still left smudge traces under my eyes. When I put my finger by my eyelashes and blinked, the mascara also smudged onto my finger.
Needless to say, I was quite disappointed in this mascara. I really love the brush though. Have any of you readers tried it? What is your opinion of it?
