Grandiose not so Grand

Tuesday, 22 September 2015

I was very eager to try this mascara especially after reading the review, to my disappointment it did not live up to it Lancôme standard in my opinion.
The bottle is beautifully designed and you can feel the luxury of the product. The lid of the bottle fades from solid black to a clear glass like column which reveals the signature Lancôme rose impression in the centre.
The wand is swan like in shape which does assist in application of the product, the crème is smooth and fragrant and applies clump free. The applicator is similar to a comb with curved grooves. Grandiose does give definition and length beautifully, better than any of their other mascara’s as it doesn’t clump lashes however failed in the volumizing category and doesn’t live up to the high standard of the Hypnôse rage.
Unfortunately I won’t be spending R410 on this mascara. I would rather buy the Max Factor Masterpiece Glamour Extensions 3-In-1 Volume Mascara because it has the same result.
Disappointed but I think I will just stick with my Hypnôse Drama and Doll Eyes by Lancôme.
