I got this mascara in Debenhams (link) on sale (of course!) alongside a sample size Bi-Facil Makeup Remover and a Le Crayon Khol Eyeliner (which is, by the way, absolutely USELESS). It was some ridiculous reduction in price so I persuaded mum to buy it - score!
Anyways on to the review...
|Sleek packaging in a typical silver Lancome box and a chunky tube of a curved design|
"Instant lash coating with immediate load thanks to a new formula which gives intense volume to the look of lashes"
|"S-shaped" brush they're so proud of...|
More from the website...
"New curvaceous oversized brush gives full lash contact for dramatically fuller and thicker looking lashes"
The only thing that I found the brush did was get on my eyelids and ruin my 30-minute cut-crease shadow design. It's humongous, and certainly isn't formulated to reach those tiny useless lashes in the corners of the eye. The tip is too thick to try and touch up the little lashes and ends up depositing a bucket of black on one tiny eyelash i.e. CLUMPS and SMEARS!
|Comparison of Drama with Precious Cells - notice the difference in brush size|
|Notice some fall out around the bottom lashes, and almost bear lower lashes after ~8 hours wear|
Conclusion - if you see it reduced, I would suggest getting it, another luxury mascara won't harm you, but I wouldn't recommend buying this at full price - a waste of money, in my case anyway. Bear in mind I have very straight eyelashes and only found one or two formulas of mascara that actually hold a curl in my lashes.
