LANCÔME Grandiôse Mascara Review

When looking for a mascara I like fanned out lashes that give me a wide eyed effect, black and curled lashes also are a must. I find it really hard to find a mascara that offers all that to me, so I decided to try out the LANCÔME Grandiôse Mascara and put it the test. At €31 this does not come cheap so I had very high expectation.


The packaging is just stunning where you can see the black rose through the top of the transparent wand. The formula to me is not too wet but more of a creamy texture which in turn can kind of make your lashes feel a little bit on the clumpy side. However I found that the mascara didn't flake at all during wear time. I also didn't get any smudging but I know that a friend of mine said this was a problem she had with it.


What makes this mascara stand out is the "Swan-Neck" wand, a first of it's kind on the market (unless like me you tend to put a bend in your mascara wand)! I found it easy to use without my face making contortions while applying it. The curve in the wand, depending on what way you use it (takes practice) will enhance your lashes, wing your lashes, and define your lashes by either using the curve facing up or down.


The bristles which remind me of thorns are rubber and I think if the bristles were just a little bit longer my lashes would get a little bit more length. But at least I can get into every corner of my lashes and get from root to tip with the mascara without poking myself and crying.


The formula is quick drying, super black and it contains rose-cell extract to make your lashes feel soft and supple. I really love the mascara, I love using it, I love the packaging and the formula. It suits my lashes and what I'm looking for and it doesn't budge.

  3. I loved this when I used it so I'm not sure why I didn't repurchase - curiosity about other brands, I suppose! It's the only Lancome mascara that I've liked so far! xx

    1. Don't worry I thought that myself or that I would poke my eye out but it was really easy to work with. The wand is unusual but makes crossing over the face to the other lashes so much easier xx

  5. This sounds great, sometimes wary of expensive mascaras as they're such an individual thing but it sounds great!
