I am a total mascara addict. I am lucky to have fairly long lashes and I love enhancing them. Most days I leave my face bare and just add a coat of mascara to my lashes. The Lancôme Grandiôse mascara was sent to me and being a total Lancôme virgin, I was super keen to try it out. Long story short, I LOVE it. Here is why.
The mascara is 10mL and comes in a beautiful bottle. It looks like a perfume bottle and has the signature Lancôme rose suspended in the clear lid. If you love pretty things and displaying your makeup, this is for you. The odd triangle shape really helps with grip when applying the mascara.
The Wand and Brush
Okay so this is a major selling point for me. I have a huge nose and I am always getting mascara on it. This wand is curved and thus ensures you get every lash without making a huge mess. The shape of the actual brush tapers at the end so you can get right to the last lash at the end of the eye and really open up your eyes.
The actual mascara is a deep black and is not gloopy at all. I usually comb through my lashes to remove clumps but I barely had to this time. One coat is enough for me. It dries quickly but because of the Rose Cell Extract it contains, it doesn’t become dry and flaky. This also means that the formula is very moisturizing, my lashes feel really soft and nourished when I wear, and even after I remove this mascara. The smell is very mild and pleasant and it lasted all day without flaking or melting off. Despite its staying power, it is easy to remove with eye makeup remover or coconut oil.
I will definitely repurchase the Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara. You can find it at you nearest Lancôme counter and it retails for ZAR399.

Until next time
