Fashion Style Magazine’s beauty director has her eye on this new mascara.
Ever since a coworker told me she put on mascara using sideways strokes to get a ‘winged’ look, I’ve done the same. Now, Lancôme’s Grandiose mascara has an angled brush to encourage this kind of application. It really helps open up eyes.
Bending the mascara brush at the neck where it meets the wand is a longtime makeup-pro trick. Setting the brush on an angle can make getting at every lash a titch easier by making the wand easier to wield. A similar principle is behind the new curved wand that makes its bow with Lancome Grandiose Mascara.
Also super-cool: this press shot taken from the top of the bottle to cast a delicate rose shadow.
I’m still playing with the Lancome Grandiose Mascara ($35, August 15th at Hudson’s Bay, Sephora, Murale, Shoppers Drug Mart and lancome.ca). I’ll say this: the mascara gives my delicate lashes a nice curl without my having used a lash curler first. That’s a back-of-the-cab bonus. I’ll have a more thorough report for you shortly. In the meantime, what do you think?
