Lancôme Hypnose Star Waterproof mascara is such a cult product in the beauty world. I never understood the love for it until I experienced it myself. First, let me tell you what I look like at the end of the day without any touch-ups: like a panda. My skin around my eyes is pretty oily and does a great job of breaking down some of the beauty world’s favorite waterproof mascaras and eyeliners.
This mascara lasts all day with 12+ hours of wear and even through a sweaty workout. I tested this wearing only some eye shadow and no liner to determine if the smudging and how well my curl lasted. And I have to say at the end of the day, it looks amazing. I even sweated in it during my workout, which resulted in a very small bit of smudging under my eyes, but nothing that couldn’t easily be rectified with a q-tip.
In summary what I love about this mascara is:
- you can build your lashes up to an almost falsies effect
- there is no clumping
- it lasts all day
- you can sweat in it
The only downside I had with this is the removal. It requires a proper makeup remover and I also use an oil makeup cleanser to remove any excess.
