Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara

This little sample was my favourite product in the distinctly mediocre Harrod's Glossybox last month. I've been using it quite a bit since then and it seems my initial excitement was fell founded as I've grown to really like this mascara.

The brush is...weird. It's kind of S-shaped and I'm not sure how it improves the application process but I do find that this mascara gets to most of my lashes and gives them more length and definition in just one coat. I don't get a great deal of volume from it so if that's what you're looking for you might be a little disappointed. I find that a little strange as this mascara is marketed as 'a must have mascara for a sensual (!), incredible and extreme volume look' (Debenhams)

The formula dries quite quickly and it holds a curl pretty well. One major downside to this product is that it's heavily scented. It's not a deal-breaker for me but if you've got particularly sensitive eyes, it may irritate them. 

(one coat)

I'm definitely contemplating purchasing the full size of this mascara at some point. It is priced at £21 so I probably wouldn't have considered it without trying it out first.

Did you get this in your Glossybox? Have you tried it out yet?
