Makeup Wars: My Favorite Mascara.

This week in Makeup Wars, we are talking about mascara. Our favorite mascara.  This is a tough one for me.  I swear my favorite mascara changes every month.

I try so many and I still buy so many, trying to find the perfect one. So I am going to go with my current favorite mascara. In fact, I have used this mascara more than any other for the past three months. Thus I am declaring my favorite mascara Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara.

 Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara

I got a Hypnôse Star sample as a Sephora 100 point perk toward the end of the summer.

Just looking at the brush, I knew it was different. Notice that one side of the brush round, and the other side is flat and straight.

 Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara Brush

I like to wiggle the flat side into the base of my lashes. It lifts them and helps form the curl upward as it is applied. And volume? Wow! I use the rounded side to comb through the lashes. As I brush it on, lashes are lengthened and defined. I find them almost wispy looking, and I love it.

The overall finish is a beautiful glossy black, with no clumping, flaking or smudging. My lashes look long, thick and great all day. It is easily removed with just a makeup wipe or eye makeup remover (before cleansing) at night.

Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara comes in just one shade of black and retails for $28.00. It was originally a Sephora exclusive and is supposed to be available at Lancôme counters, but when I checked over the weekend, it still wasn't at my local counter yet.

Be sure to check out the favorites from the other Makeup Wars bloggers, and tell me what your favorite mascara is in the comments.

ohhh pretty! I love the blingy tube too!
Wow. I'm totally impressed with the results.
I have heard such great things about this mascara. It looks like the brush is very close to my favourite Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill so I think I'd better try it!
Lancome really does make great mascaras! Haven't tried this one yet, but it looks like it needs to go on my list!
This looks like a great one!
I've never tried Star. Good idea the next time Lancome has a good gwp. I like the volume it gives you.
I have always loved the Lancome mascaras. They are consistently good.
great choice Teri
Your lashes look almost fake. I love they way they are so dark black and you have a lot of lashes.
Great choice. I'm excited b/c I just ordered this from Sephora!!
Looks like a great mascara, LOVE the packaging!
I love how dark your lashes are!
wow your lashes look beautiful! Are they naturally that long or is it the mascara?
