Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes, a review.................

One of my all time favourite Mascars is Hypnose by Lancome. I have used I don't know how many tubes of it over the years. Until about 18months ago it was all I would use. It was about this time that I started flirting with other Mascaras and brands.

Last year at one of the promotion days in Debenhams I picked up a box set of two mascaras from Lancome. One was my beloved Hypnose and the 2nd was the Hypnose Doll Eyes.

Until a few weeks ago, they have been sitting sealed in the box as I have been working my way through others.

I have been using the Doll Eyes for a few weeks now and I have to admit that I am a little on the fence about it. 

The main difference with this and the original Hypnose is the brush, Its a long cone brush designed to give the most definition to your outer lashes and the 'Doll' apperance. As brushes go, its OK, not my favourite but no where near the worse I have tried.

The main reason that I am on the fence is the formula. It is builadble which I like from a mascara and leaves my lashes feeling a little flexible which I also like. My main issue is that I have been getting terrible transfer and smudging with it.
This is something that I never have had with the original and so I am feeling a little disapointed with this mascara as a whole.
At just over £20 I dont really expect a mascara to transfer.

So for now my heart still belongs to Hypnose.

Hqave you tried Doll Eyes? What did you think?



  1. Glad to see I wasn't the only one disappointed with this mascara! I too will be sticking to the original! Did you find the more you applied the lower your lashes fell rather than being fluttery and doll eyed?!! xxx

    1. I did, I found that it just left me looking dark eyed and not at all nice :(( Its the original for me too!!xxx

  2. I practically skipped into Debenhams to buy this....I love Hypnose and I'm getting married next month so had geared it up for being my wedding day mascara. No, I was wrong, not even nearly the same effect as Hypnose. Not impressed at all, bad times Lancome! x

    1. Im so so glad that it isnt just me that doesnt love this mascara!!!!!I agree, bad times for Hypnose and Lancome!!!!!xxxx


I love to see what you think too, Leave me a comment and be sure to check back, I always reply!!xxx
