Lancome Virtuose Mini Review


When I first bought the Virtuose mascara when I was 16, it was seriously my favourite mascara, although it didn't really curl my eyelashes, it did make them super long! :D This is my mini review for this mascara :)

Claims:
> CurlGuard™ formula lengthens and holds a divine lash curve for 12 hours. > The KeepCurl™ brush provides an outstanding eyelash curler effect. > Long-lasting formula is virtually smudge-proof, tear-proof and easily removable.

(plain eyelashes without anything)

(with primer)

(with one coat of mascara)
It doesn't really look like it made much of a difference on the photos but I promise you it does in real life, that's just with ONE coat of mascara!

Pros:
- VERY lengthening
- Little to no clumping
- Lasts a long time on the eyelashes
- No flaking
- Easily removed

Cons:
-Not very volumizing
- Not super cheap for a mascara - it's $40 here for a tube
- Didn't do as promise, which is to keep curl and also the fact that it is tear proof, but then again, my eyelashes are always straight, it doesn't hold curl with any mascara or any eyelash curlers
- It dries out pretty quickly so if you want to layer your mascara, do it quick

  4. Do waterproof mascaras hold your curl? Nonwaterproof ones are bad for stick-straight lashes in my experience...

    I used two coats! I should have mentioned that in my post XD thanks for asking!

  11. I love Hypnose to death, I'm sure Virtuose will be great too!

    LOL! I certainly know what you mean by fibres flying everywhere! The white one certainly did that lol while the black one stayed put on my face -.-

    Do grab some MBD masks when you make a Sasa order! I think you'll like them =D Oh yeah, along with some Silk Whitia. I used a green collagen one and I LOVE it =D

  16. i have tried all lancome mascaras and this is probably my least fav. :( it does lengthen but doesnt give any volume (i love volume mascaras). the brush is abit prickly too and hurts my eye a little if it gets too close the waterline or tightline. also it dries up sooo fast i threw it out within 2-3 months? my ultimate fav from lancome is the hypnose mascara :)

  17. I love mascaras :) I'm like a junkie.. I have mascaras from last spring I haven't opened yet! I'm trying to be wise and get them when it's on sale but wait until I'm finished with my other ones so they don't end up expired ^_^
