Meet The Mr♥️*


I first met The Mr when I came home one day to find he had made it through my letter box (I hope I didn't catch you out too much on the title haha!) Lancôme have done it again with their Monsieur Big Mascara* which I was really excited to try. It was the first Lancôme mascara I had ever tried, and as had "big" in it's title, I initially knew it was going to be a mega voluminous mascara - I'm typically a lengthening mascara gal so I put it to the test.

I think that the black and pink packaging appears chic and clean yet also smart and sleek, I do really like it. Although it's basic, I like the colours together, they work well even if they do contrast slightly. It's actually quite a thick and chunky tube, making it easy to identify. In my opinion, as the tube is quite big, it makes you instantly aware that it's a voluminous mascara - anyone else agree?


Now for the exciting part - the wand! Going by it's name, I was expecting quite a "fat" wand because it is a voluminous mascara. By no means is the wand long and thin, but it is wider than my usual mascara wands, yet it's nothing intimidating at all. The wand is made up of plastic bristles which are similar in size and length. I normally curl my lashes beforehand and when I apply this mascara, my lashes look huge, voluminous and bold, almost as if they were false lashes. Regardless of whether or not I use my lash curler, it does create a lot of volume, and really opens up my eyes. It really helps to emphasise my natural lashes as it manages to grip onto every last lash to coat them in mascara.
 In terms of removing, I remove it with a cotton pad soaked in micellar water and I have no problems with removing every last trace. It's a mascara that's suitable enough to wear during the day, creating a natural look, or can wear in the evening as it layers effectively enough to create a dramatic effect.

I really must admit that I've been impressed by this mascara as I've been happy with the results. I tend to prefer lengthening mascaras as I've previously mentioned but I would say that this mascara is among one of my favourite voluminous mascaras. Whether you have naturally long lashes or short, little lashes, I am confident that this mascara would work for you.

Have you tried this mascara? How did you get on with it?

    1. Do you think it is? I've got that mascara too but I never really thought that they looked the same, I might need to sit them side by side to compare x
