I splurged the thirty-seven bucks to try Lancome mascara. It was recommended to me by a friend so I figured, why not, maybe it is that much better.
Here’s the good, the bad and the ugly…
It really is nice, it looks great, goes on nicely and does exactly what you want a mascara to do…makes your lashes look lush and long.
I read somewhere that someone had a reaction to it and had to stop using it. It didn’t give many details. I was skeptical though, what are the chances?
Also, it goes on quite thick so to avoid goopy-ness wipe off excess mascara before applying.
I had a reaction to it! The picture below isn’t very clear but you can see that my eyelids are flaky and irritated. I wasn’t sure what was causing this, I kept applying vitamin cream hoping it would clear up and although it helped, it never healed them.
I stopped using the mascara and they cleared right up. That can’t be…can it? I wasn’t convinced so I tried not using it and then using it again 4 times with different time intervals in between and every single time, the day after using Lancome mascara my eyelids would be flaky, itchy and red. Bummer!
It’s back to the ten dollar drug store brands for me.
