Mascara Review | Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara (With 3 Different Dolly Looks)




Do you remember those porcelain dolls we use to play with when we were young? The ones that closes their eyes when we put them to bed? Their lashes ever-so long, shiny and curled to perfection. I use to want lashes like that. I didn't know then how easily we can have lashes like those because of makeup!

Lancome is known for its fabulous mascara... one of those that made waves in the beauty community is Hypnose for giving magnified long lashes, considered HG mascara for many beauty bloggers and gurus in the US. Then there's the Hypnose Precious Cells, Lancome's first mascara that helps regenerate lashes.

And now they just came up with a new Hypnose Doll Eyes mascara for those who want dolly looking lashes. It promises to reinvent separated, thick, long, "nylon-shine  with the exclusively developed FiberShine formula and a new hyrid cone-shaped brush ! Packaged in a  sinuous shiny black tube embellished with roses, the symbolic flower of Lancome, this mascara is going to give you volumized, extended, lash look.

In other words, prepare to look real live doll.... naturally!


Seeing Michelle Phan's video about this mascara a few weeks back made me consider getting this . I love how they look as if they didn't need to use false lashes to create the cute, sexy and romantic look. What intrigued me most was the triangular brush wand. I thought that it could reach my inner lashes without any trouble at all. As much my lashes are long, the inner hairs are too thin and sparse, it's sad!

Great thing I was sent the Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara to try. It's true, this mascara is too sexy for words. I do love the packaging. It's so luxe that it clearly stood out among my other mascaras. Even the BF didn't have trouble figuring out this was expensive! He who think violent and pink lipsticks are the same. (insert giggle here)

You would imagine that a wand like this is a dime a dozen and I thought I have something similar in my stash but surprisingly, I don't. This hybrid cone-shape brush makes it easy for me to reach my inner lashes, both upper and lower. Coating my lower lashes is also easier with this mascara making my eyes appear wide awake and quite doll-like.

See how pointed the tip is? That tip makes applying mascara easier even those with lashes that are really short and stubbornly straight.

What you'll like about the Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara is the fact that it is a great fit for whatever lash type you have. 

If you have long lashes, you'll see it thicken and separated. 
If it short, you'll notice that this mascara will lengthen it. 
If it's too thin, it will volumize it. 

Thanks to the Eye Beauty Index that Lancome came up with after researching on how women sees their lashes.

So, did I like this mascara?

Yup! Most certainly do!


As most of you know I already have quite long but thin and straight lashes. I need to curl them every time before applying mascara.

As most new mascara go, using it the first time might be a hit or miss. I noticed that with Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes mascara the formula deem to be creamier compared to the usual dry formula I was used to from Lancome. Applying it was so easy but it made me feel as if I wasn't coating my lashes as properly as I should.

Reading reviews online, letting for the formula to dry a bit will make this product better and give that true volumized lashes. But already, even if it was too liquid-y for my taste, I am quite satisfied with the result.


And oh! This is the only mascara I own that's scented... it has that floral scent to it that makes me run after the scent every time I swipe my lashes with the Hypnose Doll Eyes mascara.

Just check the photos below.

What I love..

  • It lenghtens, it curls and it volumizes my lashes!
  • Hybrid cone-shaped brush makes it easier for me to reach inner corners of my lashes
  • It separates my lashes really well and give me a wide open eye look.
  • Clump-free!
  • Gives my lashes that patent-effect I've always wanted!
  • I love the floral scent!
  • Easy to remove
  • Doesn't way down my lashes
  • lashes still feels light even with this mascara on.

What I don't...

  • It isn't waterproof or sweat-proof. I notice this because of how easy it is to remove.
  • But fortunately, I am not experiencing panda eyes with this mascara even with my oily lids.
  • It's quite pricey for Php1,985.
Will I purchase this?


Yup! Now that I got to try it and saw how well it delivers its promise, I think i deserve a high end mascara that I can bring me all the time.

Remember, a bit of mascara have a way of defining your eyes and making it appear more wide awake.

I recommend this to those with droopy eyelids like mine! Let's stop looking sleepy all the time just because of our eye shape. A bit of curl, mascara and a touch of concealer is all we need to look le fabuleux!!

Aside from the price, I think everything's perfect! I love the lengthening and volumizing effect that it provides and since it's Lancome, I'm very very sure that it's good quality! :)

It makes your lashes look so long! But holy moly, expensive... I can't afford that.

Hi Shen, what lippie are you wearing in the first photo? Ang ganda, nadistract ako from the review. :)

Issa said...

wow, this is steep!  but it gave nice results!  love your intro, parang commercial :)

actually that is nothing compare to CD Diorshow Iconic. If you're going posh on makeup, might as well get the best out of the hefty price tag. I reviewed and wore CD Diorshow Iconic here

In my opinion, if you're looking for a high-end mascara, this will be the bestest option.
