Makeup Monday: Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara Review

Let's face it, finding the 'perfect' makeup product can be challenging no matter who you are. I've been fortunate to have a lot of success finding most of those 'perfect' products for my skin type, tone, budget and level of expertise. All except for mascara. I have always had the worst luck with mascaras. Don't even get me started on how many different brands I have tried in the past year...From more affordable brands like, Revlon, Covergirl and Rimmel to luxe brands such as, YSL, Benefit and Dior. Nothing seems to be the right fit.  

I have found one mascara that fits MOST of my needs, but certainly not all. Right now, my favourite mascara is the Sephora Collection Full Action Extreme Effect. It's the only mascara that I've tried that wasn't clumpy (it separates) and that lengthens. I'll be honest, I've tried more volumizing mascaras... but they come at the price of being WAY too clumpy, and that's just a deal-breaker for this beauty queen.

I never expected to try the new Lancôme Grandiôse mascara, as I was not really in the market for a new mascara (oh the joys of a student budget!). However, I had the honour of being one of the first to try out Lancôme's newest product, thanks to Influenster! The Lancôme Grandiôse mascara retails for $35 CAN at SephoraHudson's Bay Company, and of course, Lancôme itself. For more information, visit the Lancôme Grandiôse product page.

There are many aspects of the Lancôme Grandiôse mascara that I find appealing. Foremost, it passed the necessary test, it was not clumpy AND it separated my lashes. The feature I really enjoyed about the Lancôme Grandiôse mascara was that it curled my lashes without me using an eyelash curler! It left a cute little wing/flare on the outer corner of my eyes. The formula of this product is really great, I only wish it was slightly more volumizing! I guess you can't have it all though, can you?

The exclusive feature that this mascara has is its 'swan neck' wand. I kind of wondered what the big deal about the swan neck was at first... and honestly, I'm still left wondering. Although can see how it would be beneficial to have a swan neck for applying mascara on the eye where your less-dominant hand does the work. However, I found that I had to kind of twist the swan neck a little bit when I was even applying it on my right eye (and the bottom lashes). I found that a little frustrating to be honest.
