The Lancome grandiose mascara calls the attention because of its swan-neck shape. It is claimed to facilitate the way you apply your mascara.
But we are sure looking for more than that! We need good durability, full and long lashes and vivid eyes, right? In this review you will see what you can get from this mascara.
This is my honest review. I tell what I noticed from my own experience and then tell you when you should use it, or not.
Lancome Grandiose Mascara Review
I was using another kind of popular (and cheaper) brand and I could easily tell the difference.
Eyes look more vivid, with longer lashes, even though I was concerned because it was not waterproof.
I tend to use only waterproof mascara because for some reason, normal mascara drips down causing dark circles under my eyes.
It didn’t happen when I used the lancome grandiose mascara, and a good thing is that it was easy to remove even just with soap and water, without the need of remover.
Is The Lancome Grandiose Mascara Application Easier?
Some people say you will have to learn how to apply it. I don’t think so. It is obvious but the mascara comes with a small step by step tutorial. The brush is shorter and its shape will definitely facilitate application.
Just apply normally moving it as if you gently rubbing it on your wishes sideways, and brush up and down. From my opinion, I liked this idea. It does make the application easier and quicker, especially for those days where you are in a rush.
Do I need to apply it more than once to get the best results?
Yes, you do. Everytime I apply the lancome grandiose mascara, I have to apply 2 layers. If you want a more dramatic look, you will probably need at least 3. Depending of your eyelash.
Is The Lancome Grandiose Mascara Easy To Remove?
This is one of the easiest to remove mascara, that I have tried. It is not a waterproof mascara so even water and soup could remove the product. Make sure to remove the excesses with a good make up remover for the eyes, that way you don’t aggress your skin.
What About Length, lift and Volume
It does make your eyes look more vivid and if you compare with other brands you will notice it easily. There is just one mascara that I liked that much and it was an old Dior mascara with a very thin brush that I never found again! (they said is out of circulation). But this one product is nice. I like like it.
In terms of length, yeah, you can believe this is true. My lashes look longer after applying this Grandiose mascara. One of the best results I’ve had.
In terms of lift, Yeah that’s right. I also agree. longer and lifted lashes are definitely features that you will find in this mascara.
In terms of volume, I don’t think this is the best mascara for this type of effect. There are other out there that will do a better job. I noticed this mascara is more for an everyday use, so if you want a dramatic look, this is not the one indicated.
I bought mine for 39 euros here in Germany. But, thats a good deal. I find the quality to be good so I don’t mind spending money on something that I know makes the difference.
Lancome Grandiose Mascara Review Conclusion
In overall product is great. I have not been testing many mascaras lately. But I know this one better than most Dior mascaras I’ve used and it definitely makes the difference compared to more popular brands like the body shop and KIKO make up.
If I recommend? Depends. If you are looking for an everyday mascara, that can be used to many different types of non everyday events, go for it. But if you are going clubbing or need something more dramatic, this is not the one.
