Review: Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara (NEW at Sephora)
05 Aug 2017
Have you heard of the new Monsieur Big Mascara by Lancome? It’s new at Sephora. I was lucky enough to get my hands on it through Influenster and I’ve been trying it every day since I got back from the US. I like it a lot. 🙂
It’s made to give your lashes up to 12x the volume and last for up to 24 hours thanks to its brush and formula. Below are more details and my own before and after pictures.
How it’s described
“Ideal for all-day wear, this mascara doesn’t require touch-ups and doesn’t flake or smudge. This brush’s unique shape features soft, wavy fibers to deliver the perfect amount of formula with the very first stroke. This ultra-creamy formula has supple waxes and polymers to adhere immediately to lashes for big, buildable volume and length.”
I LOVE volume mascaras. That’s all I buy, really. I have pretty long lashes, so what I always look for are mascaras that make my lashes look thicker and more black. Monsieur Big’s brush has a unique shape with soft, wavy fibers that are said to deliver the perfect amount of formula with the very first stroke. The ultra-creamy formula is infused with supple waxes and polymers to adhere immediately to lashes for bold, buildable volume and length. That is how Lancome describes their newest mascara and naturally, I had to try it myself. 😀
Pictured above is what I received in my latest Influenster box: Lancome’s Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover and the Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base. What I was most excited about, was the Monsieur Big Mascara of course!
I’m pretty picky with mascaras, to be honest. Because it is something that I use almost every day, I want it to be good. No smudging, no flaking, none of that. If I don’t like a mascara, I’ll stop using it right away. Nobody wants to walk around with mascara on their cheeks or eyelids. Neither do I. I also want my mascara to make my lashes look full and thick. What’s the point of wearing it, if you can’t see it right? I already have long lashes, so volume is what I’m looking for.
With that being said, Monsieur Big (such a hilarious name!) is exactly what I hoped it would be! I don’t know about 12x the volume, but it sure makes my lashes look ‘thick’ and it doesn’t smudge either. I was especially surprised by how well it separates my lashes. The brush picks up every single lash; it leaves nothing behind. It lengthens my lashes and makes them thick without making them look clumpy.
I’m surprised that this mascara does not smudge or run whatsoever, even in this warm weather we’re experiencing now in San Diego. I sweat and I have oily skin and this mascara still doesn’t move. Surprisingly, it’s very easy to remove too, I just use an eye makeup remover. Great brush and formula!
In short, this mascara gets an A+ for me! 🙂 The results I get from it is pretty dramatic and the formula is long-lasting. It’s a pricey mascara, but it definitely does what Lancome claims.
Check out my before & after pictures below and see for yourself why I would totally recommend this mascara! Lancome’s Monsieur Big Mascara retails for $25 (0.33 oz/ 10 ml) at Sephora.
