Lancome Grandiose Mascara first of all has the most beautiful packaging I’ve seen of a mascara. Its sleek bottle with a hypnotic floating flower is eye catching.
Besides the beautiful packaging Grandiose has a unique wand that is curved. The concept behind the shape is to allow you to apply mascara to your lashes throughly to achieve the most volume possible.
The brush feels natural to me in my hand, it allows me to reach the corners of my lashes very easily. One of the biggest challenges I have is my left eye. Mainly because I find it hard to get the corner of my lashes without getting mascara on my lid. With the unique design of Lancome Grandiose, the chances of getting mascara on my lids are greatly reduced.
The formula reminds me of waterproof mascara, more dry. It also dries very quickly so its important to move fast when applying. Grandiose lasts a long time and does not budge until its time to remove.

Though pricey Lancome Grandiose was definitely worth the purchase and has become one of my favorites.
