Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara

Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara review
In case you wasn't aware, I'm a bit of a mascara junky. I also tend to buy into the hype and gimmicks around new products, so naturally I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara, and considering Lancôme make the number one selling mascara in the world, Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara, I was even more excited about this launch.

If you follow my blog, you will probably be wondering why on earth I have bought another mascara when I already own tons of them, well like I said at the start, I'm a mascara junky and I do love buying products that have a gimmick, or something different to them and Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara is definitely different to anything else on the market right now.

As you can see from the pictures Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara has a beautiful patent pending 'Swan-Neck' wand, which is meant to help you achieve open, full and defined lashes. This isn't the first time I have seen a Swan-Neck wand though, but it's not a wand you could buy previously. Make-up Artists have been bending their wands like this for years as it enables them to get right up to the root of the lashes for an easier application. I presume this is why Lancôme have designed the mascara this way, so that everyone can achieve a make-up artist look for them self at home.

I work opposite the Lancôme counter so I've been hearing about this launch for weeks now, all the girls were super excited about the mascara and it was already sold to me before their testers came in stock! Yes I'm an easy sale! Then the other night the Make-up Artist used this on another lady at work, who's lashes are pretty much non existent and damn, this made her lashes so intense! I begged to be able to buy it and luckily I purchased it before the national launch (Selfridge's have had an exclusive up until today).

The brush itself is a small plastic brush. I wasn't keen on the brush at first as I tend to prefer medium to large brushes, but after I used it I found that the brush really did help me coat every single lash easily, and I had no problem applying mascara to those hard to reach places (inner and outer corner)and there was no dollop of mascara left on my face, that happens far to often, especially when I'm rushing to get ready for work... which is most days!

I didn't find the Swan-Neck wand hard to use at all, I had seen a review a few weeks ago from someone saying that it's just too much work using it, but I had no problems. I used the wand turned upwards to apply my top mascara and found that it really lifted up my lashes. I always curl them, but this did it for me and actually kept them curled all day long. Along with curling my lashes, it added an extreme amount of length to them too, length I haven't found a mascara to do them in a long time! Volumising wise, it added a decent amount, but not as much as I would normally like, having said that, the amount of curling and lengthening it did add, kind of made up for it.

Please excuse these two pictures! The first one, I just couldn't get into the right light and the second picture, I have obviously just got one eye done! How odd does my naked eye look here?! I wanted to show you the difference between a 'made up' eye and a naked eye (no under eye concealer too!) as I think this picture really show cases what the Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara has done to my lashes! 


Overall I'm really pleased with the Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara. To not even need to curl my lashes and achieve that amount of lift is amazing. The lengthening is out of this world and the formula is beautiful. The design and Swan-Neck wand are beautiful and it is EASY to use! The only thing I would have liked was a little more volume, but that's me just being picky! It is a little pricier, at £24.50 BUT if you love a high-end mascara then I would definitely recommend you give this a try, and after all, who doesn't love a bit of Lancôme?!

Until Next Time
