Lancome Mascara Review



I have had my eye on this mascara for years and when I say years, I literally mean years. I have always wanted to try out a Lancôme mascara because they are just meant to be incredible, but then they came out with the Grandiose Mascara, and I saw the stunning packaging with the rose I the end of the wand, I knew that I had to get my hands on it. The only thing that has put me off from getting this over the years has been the price. To spend £29 on a mascara, I want it to be all singing and all dancing because I think that the quality of my Maybelline mascara is second to none and that is only around £5!
I decided to finally bite the bullet and buy this when I was doing my latest House of Fraser haul. I actually clicked onto the mascara category to replenish my stock of the YSL Shocking Mascara and I saw this sat there and I just decided to go for it. The YSL Shocking Mascara is around £22, which I know is only £7 cheaper than I paid for this one, but I am more comfortable paying that for a mascara than nearly £30. I normally pay around £30 for a high-end foundation, not a mascara. But, I have to admit, when I got this and actually tried it out, I was incredibly happy with the product.



The first thing that you notice when you look at this product is the packaging. I have had hell of a lot of makeup over the years and I haven’t used anything that is anywhere near as stunning as this mascara. I could have gone for the normal Lancôme mascara, but the whole reason that I went for this one is because of how lovely it looks. The rose in the end of the want just makes it look out of this world. I actually feel bad when I toss this into my makeup drawer after I’ve used it because it deserves to be on show!
Obviously, the most important thing then it comes to any review is how the product itself actually performs. Last year was the first time that I had tried a high-end mascara and it was the YSL Shocking mascara, if you have visited my blog regularly, you will know that I love that mascara and it has been mentioned in so many of my favourites posts over the past 12 months. When I first got this one through, I couldn’t help but compare the two. I can quite honestly say that this is the best mascara that I have ever worn, it has smashed all of my drugstore mascaras out of the water and it is even better than my YSL Shocking.
When you apply this it just goes on really easily. When you remove the wand from the tube, it is bent, which at first, I found it a little strange to get used to, but if anything, it makes it even easier to apply. The wand itself with the product on is very small, surprisingly small actually, but it doesn’t make applying the mascara any more time consuming, it just makes you apply it more precisely. When I went from using a generic style of mascara though and then using this, it was a little strange to start with, but nothing bad at all.



This Lancôme Grandiose Mascara I feel really lifts my eyes and holds my curl really well. It just makes my lashes look really wide and makes me look more awake, which is always a look that I want to go for. Also, with this mascara I have had no transferring or all out through the day, which is sometimes a massive issue with mascaras. I have applied three layers of this and it doesn’t clump up or make my lashes go spidery and I think that is thanks to the really soft and feathery wand. Another thing that I just want to touch on really quickly is that it stays put all day long, but it also comes off really easily with eye makeup remover, which I think is so important because I hate been harsh around my eyes.
Anyway, I will leave this review here. Everything about this Lancôme Grandiose Mascara just seems to work so perfectly, it does everything that I would want from a high-end mascara and I can honestly say that I would pay £29 again for this mascara. I will leave a link to this mascara down below in case you want to check it out. Also, make sure to leave me a comment down below and let me know what your favourite mascara is!
