Focus: Mascara Review- Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes, Chanel Inimitable Intense, Covergirl Lash Blast, and Benefit Bad Gal

To go along with my new review series I’m doing, I’m also going to be “featured” or “focus” post. So it might be talking about products from just one brand like Tarte or Nars, or a focus like mascara or foundation. So yea, this one will be all about mascara, I’m going to try and limit them to 3 or 4, so they’re not obnoxiously long!


First up is Lancôme’s Hypnôse Doll Lash. I hadn’t tried this in a long time, so I’ve been retrying it, to just double check what I thought then still applies. So first pro is that it does lengthen and volumizes my lashes, and it doesn’t transfer too much (does a little still). Honestly it wasn’t as bad as I had remembered it, and I think I would recommend it, I won’t personally repurchase it but I can see how some people would like it. I did find it clumped and had chunks almost in it, which is never appreciated, and it had a scent, which I don’t really like in my mascara. Generally it lasted alright, I did find it deflated a little, If you have straighter lashes or problems with keeping a curl I wouldn’t recommend it.


So, this is another mascara I have had for way too long but still feel deserves a review because I loved it, it’s Chanel’s Inimitable Intense! What I look for in a mascara is length, a little bit of volume, and definition and this give me all of that and barely transfers! I don’t think I had anything that I didn’t like about this or at least that I can remember. I don’t think it is amazing for curl but worked fine for my lashes, and I would definitely repurchase and recommend.


So for me this is an old school fave for me. Covergirl Lash blast and Luxe (the purple one) were my favourite drug store mascara all thru high school, and I don’t even know how many times I have repurchased these, but I love them. I usually bought the Lash Blast in brown and the Luxe in black, I don’t know why but I found like each of those formulas just worked better for me. I found it really gave me the length and definition that I look for and it was good for not transferring on me. Also no scent really which is always appreciated. Definitely would/have repurchased and do recommend!


Benefits BADgal Lash is probably one of the more volumizing mascara’s that I’ve tried out, and it was okay. It does still give some definition, and length, but it’s main thing was volume. I remember that I did like this mascara and do often recommend it to clients, I haven’t repurchased it and don’t think I will, not that it’s bad, or anything, but just wasn’t wow, does that make sense? I would buy covergirl over it if that helps. Yea, so it was meh, if you are looking for higher end and just want a general mascara with a little bit of volume then this one is great but if you care a little bit more or don’t care if it’s high end then try something else!

Here’s a video where I show and talk about some of these products!
