Lancôme Grandiose Mascara - $35 - offers wide-angle, fan effect that adds exceptional
length, curve and volume to all lashes for bigger, brighter eyes.
Mascaras are usually more of the same right? But what makes this one new and interesting is the swan-neck wand, which is meant to work with the shape of your face for the easiest
application, while the curve of the wand also mixes the mascara with each twist
open, allowing the formula to stay fresh longer. The specially
designed, elastomer-molded brush perfectly deposits formula on each
lash, while smaller bristles effortlessly coat even short lashes from
root to tip for ultimate volume.
The ultra-black, smudge-free formula
features rose cell extract, which nourishes and smooths lashes
while providing infinite buildability. This high-gloss, clump-free
mascara leaves lashes fanned out with maximum length, and it is designed
with long-wearing, flexible polymers, which allows for easy removal.
The look of this mascara is super cool - from the black rose suspended in the clear cap to the groovy looking brush. I think the shape is meant to make it easier to reach across your nose and other facial protrusions so you can apply mascara to both eyes without having to twist and turn the brush but years of mascara application with a regular brush have made me so proficient that I was unsure of how to hold this one - luckily it even comes with instructions that has little pictures that show you exactly how to hold the brush for maximum effectiveness! I don't know that the brush is a life-changer for me but I do like the formula a lot, it looks rich and black, didn't clump, flake or smudge and came off easily with soap and water!
Available now at Lancôme counters across Canada.

Product provided by Influenster for review, opinions are my own.
Lisamarie - the happiest day of my life was the day Sephora opened it's first store in Canada (thankfully in Toronto), second happiest day was before this when Sephora finally started shipping to Canada, third I guess would be my wedding day (but don't tell my husband where he ranks please!)
