I can honestly say that I found my Holy Grail mascara. I have been using the Lancome Hypnose mascara for about 8 months now. This is the original formula. It retails for $26. I flirt with other products but always come back to this one. It is available in 3 colors. I use the Dark Black. The mascara is described as one that adds volume to lashes. I definitely agree. However, I achieve incredible length with this product as well. It is available in regular and waterproof formulas. I have only used the regular one. I have repurchased this mascara twice in the past 8 months which is definitely the sign of a great mascara, in my opinion. Do you have a favorite?
