Lancome Hypnose Mascara is one of the worst mascaras I have ever used and is an incredible waste of $25. The brush is large and rather easy to use but the mascara itself goes on clumpy, requiring many reapplications to get semi-decent looking eyelashes. I think the neck of the bottle is too large, leading to too much mascara on the brush, but when the product description promises gorgeously full and thick looking lashes with no clumping or smudging, that is what you would expect to get, no? Instead, go with the Maybelline The Falsies Mascara in Very Black for ultimate volume, darkness and va-VOOM! lashes.
