[REVIEW] Lanc么me Monsieur Big Mascara – did they make it big?

lancome monsieur big mascara review by emily gets elegant

What the what? Free AND beautiful mascara?!

I’m super excited about this product because 1) I don’t own any products from聽Lanc么me yet and 2) the packaging is SO pretty!聽馃槏聽Yeah, I’m a sucker for cute packaging/labeling… basically anything pink, black, or a combination thereof and I’m all over it.

Please note:
I received these products free or complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

In my Voxbox, I received the Lanc么me Monsieur Big Mascara,聽Lanc么me Cils Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Base, and聽Lanc么me Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover. I have tried both the mascara and mascara base but not the makeup remover yet as of this posting.

First impression:

  • The mascara packaging, as mentioned above, was a sharp-looking combination of pink and black. Very feminine and sexy. The actual wand was straight and, really, there was nothing remarkable about it.
  • The mascara base comes in a compact white tube, and also has a straight wand. The actual product is white as well.

First Try-on:

I was anxious to try this out, and when I did finally, it was a great time too as I was going out to dinner. So, as instructed, I used the mascara base first which is a product type I have never tried before. It looked like white mascara on the wand. It did lengthen my lashes quite a bit.

Then when I applied the mascara, I could tell immediately, WOW, what a difference! Even after just one stroke, it looked as if I had false lashes on. Check out my before and after photo, yo.

Another great feature of this mascara is that it dried REALLY quickly. I’m not sure if that has to do with the mascara base or just the ingredients in the mascara, but it didn’t rub on my eyelids like I usually get. Just a few seconds later and my lashes were set. Also, I did about 5-6 strokes, and I noticed there was little to NO clumping whatsoever. And the mascara base does not feel like any more weight on your lashes; both products together feel light and comfortable.

I’m not sure if this is waterproof but this mascara did not budge at all for about 5 hours until I went to remove it. I used my regular eye makeup remover from CVS, I’m going to try the聽Lanc么me makeup remover tonight.

Overall:

I would definitely say this hits all points out of the park. 10/10. The packaging is simple, the wand is straightforward, there’s nothing crazy remarkable about the packaging. But the product itself has AMAZING results, hands-down, probably the best mascara I’ve ever tried.

What do you guys think? Have you tried it?!

Must try: My Favorite Drugstore Mascara

Favorite Drugstore Mascara 2017
Favorite Drugstore Mascara 2017 | EmilyGetsElegant.com

I never liked聽mascara. In fact, I used to skip the step altogether. I guess one of the biggest reasons why was because it was such a pain to remove. Ugh!

But I’m realizing now that mascara and lash length is highly regarded in the beauty world.

Now, mascara is quickly becoming one of my favorite items of makeup. So much so that I now have a fast-growing collection of both drugstore and high-end products.

The wands range from long, fluffy, stiff, short, curled, mini and even hourglass-shaped. Some I love, some are OK, and some I just wear to get rid of. I have full size and trial-sized versions.

Of all the ones I’ve tried from the drugstore, the L’Oreal Voluminous Feline聽mascara is my current fave. The wand is straightforward and feels good in your hand. The brush is soft and doesn’t pull on your lashes. It provides great coverage and lash length. The packaging of gold/emerald is eye-catching, too, and is a nice addition to your collection. If you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend it!聽馃槈
