Lancôme will soon launch a new Hypnôse mascara, Volume-à-porter, and today I bring you an exclusive review of it.
Hypnôse Volume-à-porter mascara comes in an elegant package. It has the same shape as Drama, Doll Eyes and Star mascaras, but the exterior color is different than others – comes in specular, bronze package. Its metalized appearance immediately reveals that this is a special mascara.
Hypnôse mascaras are my favorite mascaras, especially because of their phenomenal formula. I like their brushes as well. But, this time, Hypnôse comes with a change – Volume-à-porter has a rubber brush. I’m not always a fan of that kind of brushes, which may be due to the shape of the brushes, but mostly because of their synergy with formulas. The so-called “wet” mascara formulas in combination with rubber brushes can do a messy application. That’s not the case here, because this is a Hypnôse mascara which comes with a consistent formula. Hypnôse formula, popularly known as “dry”, provides a controlled application of the fluid. Also, the brush with its shape succeeds to beautifully separate the lashes.
The goal of the Volume-à-porter mascara is, as the name suggests, to provide volume to the lashes, but also to make them visually longer. It really fulfills the promise. First layer visually extends them, and following layers bring volume. The result is sophisticated, but expressive appearance of eyelashes. It is light-weight and each new layer slides on the eyelashes, giving a clean application, without creating clumps. My eyelashes are straight, sparse and thin, but this mascara gives them a sufficient volume and the brush manages to curl them.
Hypnôse mascaras always impress me with their excellent durability. That is the case with this mascara as well. Does not crumble and there are no smudges. It looks the same all day long. Like its predecessors, this mascara smells like roses, which is a really special addition to the formula.
Lancôme managed to amaze me again with Hypnôse mascara, and I believe that it will appeal to other lovers of this famous collection. If you have a chance, do try this great novelty.
