You know how dolls always have super long, curled, and ultra defined lashes? It isn’t hard to look at a porcelain doll and suffer some serious lash envy! So, what did Lancôme do about it? They went and formulated a mascara inspired by dolls in order to recreate that big lash, wide-eyed look. They also are running a fun Facebook application where you can upload a photo and create and makeup your own doll.
Lancôme has long been one of my favorite brands for mascara. Their various offerings in the Hypnose line have always been quality items that provided good volume, length, and/or definition depending on the formulation.
I was provided with a sample of the new Lancôme Hypnose Doll Lashes to try. The brush with this one is a bit unique. It starts out thick at the base and tapers to a point at the top. This makes it quite easy to get into the corners of your eyes with the mascara and to get nice definition on the lower lashes as well. It also does a nice job of creating volume at the base of the lashes. However, what I noticed most when using Lancôme Hypnose Doll Lashes was the length and definition. This mascara creates long lashes with a high amount of definition. I also noted some decent curl, which is a bonus, even though I always recommend curling your lashes before applying mascara for the best effect. Do be sure to wipe the brush with a bit of tissue before using this one, as the corner of the brush can pick up extra product when it is removed from the tube. Overall, I think Lancôme did a nice job with this new mascara, especially in regard to formulating a product that can recreate that doll type of look.
In connection with the new mascara, Lancôme has also released a fun Facebook app where you can create your own doll using a personal photo and then can apply lashes and makeup, change her dress, or change her attitude. Here is mine. I don’t know that she looks all that much like me, but she does have my eyes, is rather cute, and I enjoyed making her. I love her attitudes!
