I was very lucky to be picked by Influenster to receive the Lancome’s New Grandiose Mascara for review. I was so excited because I was interested in this new applicator.
Lancome describes Grandiose as “this grand mascara re-invents a new application technique with it’s new swan-neck wand. Grandiose provides length, curve and volume all-in-one as well as access to all lashes from corner to corner and root to tip” This mascara also contains a rose cell extract to moisturize and sooth lashes!
The packaging is elegant with a glass like finish to the bottle:
And of course the talked about “Swan-Neck”
So does this swan-neck really make a difference?? Or is it just a gimmick?? I can honestly say that I love this swan-neck applicator and I’m going to explain why.
- It makes it easier to apply the mascara to each lash – inner, outer, you know those stubbern little ones!
- while you’re getting to all those hard to get to lashes, the brush handle doesn’t get in your way……you can really angle that swan-neck and not worry about getting a dollop of mascara on your nose.
As for the formula it provides great length and lift to my lashes, as well as added volume with a single coat (I have stick straight, short lashes). It barely caused any clumping and after 12 hours of wear ( I work 12 hour shifts), there was little to no flaking. As well, I received so many compliments on my lashes….from store clerks to family members!
This mascara does not come cheap. It retails for $35 Canadian, which may be a deciding factor for some people regarding their decision to purchase. But for me personally, I have always purchased higher end mascaras because I like how they work. So if you’re like me, I highly recommend trying the Grandiose Mascara……I know I will be purchasing another bottle when this one runs out! Because bottom line…….the Swan-neck is NO gimmick, it works!
