The first luxury mascara that I ever owned (from what I can remember) was the Lancôme DÉFINICILS Mascara. Since then I don’t think the brand has ever released a mascara that I wasn’t at least somewhat a fan of. Now they’ve released their newest and self-proclaimed “biggest launch of the year” – the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara.
what is it
The Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara ($25.00) is touted as being a “high-volume mascara that delivers bold lash volume for up to 24 hours”. Further it states that this mascara has an ultra-creamy formula that glides onto the lashes like silk, delivering up to 12 times the volume. It’s ideal for all-day wear without smudging or flaking. The large brush has a unique shape designed to deliver the perfect amount of formula in just one stroke.
My lashes will clump no matter what mascara or formula I use. They just love to hug each other. That being said, clumping doesn’t bother me… to a point. I enjoy the look of major volume and the way this mascara looked after two coats made me happy.
The brush is big (which I LOVE) but not so big that you can’t easily get at all of your lashes. I didn’t experience any flaking, smudging or migration with this mascara, even when I used it on the lower lashes. Definitely a major difference in my before & after!
Below is the before and after of my lashes using 2 coats of Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara. I didn’t use any primer or lash curler.
