Part of being a beauty or fashion expert is coming to terms with the fact that you’re a Girl Who Cried Wolf. We all are. We fall hard, can’t see straight, and then whatever shower gel/gloss/conditioner we’re raving about becomes the HOTTEST, the DOPEST, the COOLEST, the MOST MIND-BENDINGLY TRANSFORMATIVE product ever to be sent to us by a mid-level P.R. chick. And at the time, we mean it. At least, I do…I really really do. Until some fast-talking upgrade sidles up to me, with it’s slick packaging and sexy claims.
All this babble is just to say that I’ve raved about be-all end-all mascaras before. And they’ve all been stellar. Many of them have even been Lancome. But none of them have been Lancome Grandiôse Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara. Which is — and I say this without a sliver of hyperbole — the best lash-lengthener of all time. Here’s why: the wand comes with a clever swan neck, which enables you to catch all the tiny corner hairs and bottom lashes, while sweeping the top ones out from root to tip — fanning them out to their sultry fullest. Basically, the swan neck is built to compliment the curves of your eye area (allowing for flawless application) and the crest of the hairs (giving an eye-popping finish). Straight wands are not. And if you’ve ended up with good-enough-but-not-dazzling lashes, that’s why.
Try it. Your life will change, woman.
