Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara review

I have been a huge Lancôme fan for over a decade and I adore their skincare and makeup. Plus my favourite foundation is the Lancôme Teint Miracle, so I am always keen to try new products from the brand. My latest makeup crush from Lancôme is their new Monsieur Big Mascara*(£21.00) and I am not the only one loving it, as it's getting loads of fantastic reviews! Well... see the before and after and decide for yourself!

Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara before and after photo
I am pretty impressed! Monsieur Big promises up to 12x more volume and it really delivers! It makes my lashes look thicker from the first coat and it's so easy to apply! It literally takes a few seconds to do each coat. No messing around and you get the length, volume and curl. I love the big chunky brush, as it gives me the finish I love! I usually go for 2 coats, but when I have loads of eye makeup on, I go for 3. The more coats you add, the bigger the risk of the dreaded 'spider lashes' though, so be careful. Can you see that in the final photo my lashes are just on the verge of spidery? That's when I stop adding more.

Monsieur Big is ultra black, smudge proof and doesn't flake, but if you're in the rain, you will end up being a panda, so be careful, haha :) I hope they make a waterproof version of this. It's also suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, which is great!

When it comes to mascara, it always tends to cause a stir! I never understood hype around certain ones and some mascaras I absolutely hate seem to be loved by others and vice versa.  It just depends what effect, brush and formula you like etc. I like my lashes long, with medium volume and a nice curl and Monsieur Big helps me achieve that!

PS. I used an eyelash curler prior to applying the mascara as I always do it, but I also tried the mascara without curling my lashes and it lifts my lashes nicely and doesn't look much different.

Overall, I am absolutely loving the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara and I have been using it every single day since I got it. It's fantastic!
