Ready for the best lashes of your life? Well, I was at 7.35pm last Monday evening, when I got home, looked in the mirror and realised that my mascara had made its way down to my cheeks. Not the look I was going for…
I’ve been searching for my mascara hero for a while now, but nothing has lived up to my high expectations. It has to be smudge-free, last the whole day, be super-black and NOT clumpy. And as an avid ice skater and newbie to trampolining classes every Thursday night, my mascara is as important as my sports bra.
So I was psyched to try the Lancôme Mr Big Mascara Midi Size, which promises big volume 24/7. Oh – and it’s completely free when you buy any Lancôme La Nuit Tresor fragrance that’s 50ml or above. My top pick? Lancôme La Nuit Tresor A La Folie, which smells of rose, bourbon vanilla and patchouli. Lush!
Anyway, Thursday morning arrives and I’m filming for The Perfume Shop. But being on camera means I need a reliable mascara to keep me looking on point all day. Cue Lancôme Mr Big Mascara! I apply it slowly, and instantly my eyelashes are darker, bolder and more defined.
I absolutely love how it made me look (and feel) awake. The volume was unlike any mascara I’ve worn before – it’s almost as if it stretches your lashes. What's more, the midi size is perfect for storing in your handbag, so you can top up throughout the day. And to my surprise, when we wrapped the video shoot, there wasn’t even a sign of mascara on my cheeks. WINNING.
