I have been on the hunt for the perfect mascara for a long time. A VERY long time. I’ve tried everything from DIORSHOW Blackout, to Benefit, to Clinique, to Sephora, to MAC. I’ve even tried out the drugstore brands like Rimmel, Revlon, and Cover Girl. Every time, there has been something that I have been disappointed with when in comes to a staple in my makeup routine – too clumpy, too flaky, does not provide volume, does not lengthen…I was skeptical when I received Lancome’s new Mascara to try and review.It is available to purchase at Sephora for $35.00 CAD
Lancôme ’s new Grandiose Mascara includes a very interesting and intuitive brush which they have termed the “Swan Neck™ Wand” It’s claim to fame - exceptional length, lift, and volume to all lashes. The curve of the wand mixes the mascara with each twist open, allowing for formula that stays fresh longer. I have to say, I am quite impressed with the brush, super easy to apply!
Rather than create an extremely dramatic look, I applied only one coat of the mascara, something that I would do for everyday use in the office.

I have to say I am quite impressed with the amount of coverage the Mascara provided.
PROS: It did make my lashes look thicker, longer and fuller. I also noticed that it did not create any clumps.
CONS: While Lancôme Grandiose Mascara boasts no flaking, 12 hours later, it was definitely visible, though significantly better than some of the higher end brands that i have tried (namely DiorShow).
