    Big Disappointment

    Yes, this mascara does provide a nice volumizing and lengthening effect, BUT it clumps badly and leaves my lashes looking like long, thick, dark spider legs. It also flakes, leaving little black specks on my cheeks. It also has a strange, vaguely-floral, vaguely-chemical odor that I can smell during the day. For $24.50, I expected a much better product. There are many drugstore mascaras that cost 1/4 as much as this and are way, way better. My advice: save your money! — 3 years, 8 months ago

    from a serial mascara buyer

    i buy mascara anytime a new one is advertised (literally any time i see something i havent tried i go buy it) and i always end up using them about 3 times before going back to my Lancome Hypnose. It coats my invisible lashes to look long and thick and if i want them even thicker i just put another coat. so simple and it actually is worth the money, when usually i do NOT buy expensive mascaras! — 3 years, 10 months ago

    DRAMATIC!

    This is a GREAT mascara. I personally think that it is one of Lancome's BEST mascara. Most of Lancome's mascara either flake horribly (Definicils Pro) or Smudge horribly (Definicils). This DOESN'T! It gives a good amount of length and TONS of volume. I even slept with this on...and while the curl completely went away, it only flaked a TEENY BIT. and I'm a Contact Lense wearer with sensitive eyes, ...read moreand this doesn't bother me! It can feel a little heavy on the lashes though. I use the Shu Uemura lash curler. This mascara doesn't hold a curl very well. After 7 hours, the curls is completely gone. ONE coat is everyday natural, and TWO is insane volume and REALLY DRAMATIC LASHES! THREE coats is CLUMPCLUMPCLUMP. I really like the brush of this mascara. I also really like the formula. It's not so wet like other Lancome mascaras. The formula does have a STRONG rose scent. It's not unpleasant, but you can definitely smell it while applying the mascara. It goes away after a while. I like this mascara a lot, but it is a little too dramatic for me. I would buy again, and keep it in my makeup kit for special occasions, like dances and such. PROS: -Lots of Volume with no clumping (clumps at the third coat...but you really don't need a third coat) -Good amount of length -Really dark -Flakes only a TEENY bit (but I rub my eyes a lot) -Doesn't smudge (I have REALLY watery eyes, and it might smudge just a little...and I mean so little you can't really tell) -Doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes -Nice brush CONS: -expensive -rose scent (which I personally don't really care for. It's not bad or untolerable though) -doesn't hold curl really well — 3 years, 11 months ago

    Bring on the DRAMA!

    Lancome makes the best mascara, hands down. And I would know. A few years ago, I went on the search for the HG and bought about 10 different kinds (sadly, before Sephora came out with that sampler set). I've used Lancome's Fatale, Osciallation, and now Hypnose Drama, always with the same dream. Turn my puny lashes into big flasy ones. Now, Fatale and Oscillation are both excellent. But Hypno...read morese Drama is UNREAL. Literally, it looks like I'm wearing false lashes almost. The only con is it can be a little clumpy, but that's fixed with a good metal mascara comb and some patience. The brush takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do you wonder why all brushes aren't shaped like that because it's the best for getting the most bang out of your mascara. — 4 years ago

    Good

    I already have long lashes, but this made them look ridiculously long. It was a little clumpy at first, because there was too much product on the brush, but then I got a hang of it. The weird brush form makes it easy to reach all your lashes, which is really nice. — 4 years, 6 months ago

    Provides excellent lash separation for a full bodied look!

    One criteria I always look for in a good mascara is how well it separates my already thick lashes. The worst a mascara can do is group my thick lashes into sections, giving it a thin, spidery-legs effect that NEVER looks good. Unfortunately, I have used many of those types of mascaras in the past, regardless of brand or price. Well, I think I have found one that doesn't do that. The Lancome Hy...read morepnose Drama mascara not only does an excellent job separating my lashes, it gave it volume and length without so much as clumping even after 2-3 coats! The mascara comes in a black, hourglass shape tube and the brush has a slight "s" shape to it. I suspect the shape of the brush has a lot to do with how well the product separates and thickens lashes. The mascara is slightly on the wet side and there's a lot of product deposited on the brush when you pull it out of the tube. And because of this wetness, the mascara takes a bit longer to dry. The black color is a very good black and slightly on the shiny side. In the morning, I find that one coat of this does the trick of giving me dramatic, long, thick and clump-free lashes. Of course if you want to step it up a notch and add additional coats, this product will deliver and won't clump and flake while you're applying it. An overall excellent buy and definitely a repeat buy! Yes the mascara isn't cheap but you do get what you pay for. — 4 years, 6 months ago

    Excellent

    I've loved Lancome since I was a teenager. It is reliably good quality, and it delivers on all of its promises. It does thicken lashes, and they look longer, too. It wears well and lasts a while. Well worth the money. — 4 years, 6 months ago
