Doll Eyes

Just like red lipstick, I am constantly on the hunt for the perfect mascara. All I want is to find one that lengthens, thickens, darkens, and doesn’t clump. Is that too much to ask? Apparently so. I have tested dozens of mascaras-from high end to drugstore-and have yet to be 100% satisfied. Most days I have 4 different types on my lashes. Crazy and very expensive!
My latest test has been Lancome’s Hypnose Doll Lashes. Lancome is consistently rated tops in mascara, but I’ve never been too crazy about the results. Despite the reviews (which aren’t great), I thought I’d give it a try.
I actually like it. Lancome states that it will extend, lift and plump up the volume to doll-like proportions. It does extend and lift, but doesn’t quite thicken the way I would like. However, paired with Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum and Primer, it’s as close to perfect as it gets. It doesn’t clump, smear onto my lids (and they are on the oily side) and it washes off very easily. And it’s the only mascara I have to wear-no layering necessary.
