First things first - the packaging is perfect. Sleek, simple, sexy. The name sucked me right in because let's be honest... who doesn't want beautiful fluttery doll-like lashes? SOLD!
I got this at Sephora and I do not regret it! This is a great mascara. I haven't experimented too much with Lancome (the only ones I tried before were Courbe Virtuouse and Definicils, both of which were in the "meh" category) but I definitely like this better than the previous ones I've tried.
It's definitely more lengthening than my other mascara favourites - I tend to favour volumizing mascaras like L'Oreal Voluminous, YSL Faux Cils, MUFE Smoky Lash, you get the point! This one has volumizing action but it also adds a bit more length, focusing on the ends of the lashes and winging them out.

I figured I should photograph it with one coat and on UNCURLED lashes to show its full ability. It's definitely more lengthening and curling than Prestige My Blackest Lashes, and while that one adds more volume and depth, Lancome takes the ends to pretty and fluttery lengths due to its funky wand:
So... the verdict - I like! It would probably wow me more if it didn't transfer on me, but then again its because it makes the ends of my lashes so long that they inevitably touch my brow bone so I shouldn't complain. I've also had a viewer send me a comment on YouTube suggesting I layer this with Prestige My Blackest Lashes for a beautiful effect... I can't wait to try that now!
