I already told you about the Lancome Virtuose Precious Cells mascara before. Its a new mascara by Lancome that cares for your lashes and helps them grow with constant use. There was also a trade in offer where you could trade in an old mascara for a sample of this new one – did you participate in that? 🙂
Anyway, I already told you my initial thoughts on the Virtuose Precious Cells mascara then so this is just a quick review to show you some pictures.
I found the mascara brush a little on the large side. My eyes aren’t very big and my lashes aren’t all that very long so getting mascara smudges was common.
To apply the Virtuose Precious Cells, I was advised to use the inner curve, wriggle it at the root and the swipe upwards. Wiggling it at the root of the lashes deposits more mascara there which helps it to hold the curl better. The Virtuose Precious Cells mascara is supposed to help lashes look longer and curlier.
Personally having stick straight lashes, I only managed to get the curl effect AFTER first curling. Once I curled my lashes, the mascara helps the curl to remain. Without first curling, there wasn’t much discernable curling of my lashes. The formula isn’t too heavy so my lashes stayed up all day and washes out easily with warm water. For more drama, you can layer it on more but it might get a bit spidery.
I saw it being applied on someone with naturally long and curly lashes. The effect is summarized in one word – stunning! For us shorter lashed gals, it will take a little more effort to get the stunning effect but if you already have long lashes, you will love this because if you apply 2 coats, you will get the effect of false lashes – kid you not!
Lancome mascara has for the most part worked for me throughout the years so really, I have no real complaint about this one except the brush which I find too large for me. After a while though, I’m getting used to it so it gets less messy over time.
Pros: Holds a curl, Makes my lashes look longer
Cons: Brush head is too big for my eyes, Pricey
Did you try this one during the promo blitz? I think the mascara exchange might still be going on.
If you have tried the sample, do you have some thoughts to share?
