Lancôme Grandiose Mascara Review

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.
Before application of Grandiose Mascara
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).
After application of Grandiose Mascara
Overall, I would give this a 4.5 out of 5 and would definitely repurchase.

Have you tried Lancôme Grandiose Mascara?


Summer is finally here. I mean FINALLY here – albeit its August. It’s hot days and equally warm nights, with heat just dissipated from tarmac, bricks and surrounding objects. Everything is warm to the touch; sun-kissed. I absolutely love how the pictures turned out. Slightly blurred, as if the camera itself was sweating.Soaking in every last drop of sunshine possible and holding out for an extended heatwave.

After a much long hiatus, I am back and ready to devote some much needed time to this blog. I love it dearly and it has been a source of happiness, a place for contemplation, and venue for my thoughts and ideas. My hiatus from The Fine Balance was not planned, though a much needed reprieve. Many things have transpired over the last little while, and I knew I would not have been able to fully devote to my writing and quality pictures and posts if I had continued. I feel refreshed and ready to get back into it and bring you all aspects this space is supposed to offer – Fashion, Fitness and Food related posts.

I hope I can count on all of you to continue with me on my journey.
