Lancome Grandiose Extreme Mascara

Lancome Grandiose Extreme Mascara

Lancome Grandiose Extreme Mascara

press-sampleHere in Arizona, lash extensions are really popular.  I’m so used to seeing them, my own natural lashes seem disturbingly short in comparison.  A friend of mine suffered a horrible eye infection after getting them once though, so I’ve sworn I’ll never give them a try no matter how awesome they look.  The good news for extension-phobes like myself is Lancôme Grandiose Extreme Mascara delivers the look of lash extensions, with zero commitment!

While the bottle and applicator design of Lancôme Grandiose Extreme Mascara are enough to lure me in, the length and volume this mascara delivers is what will keep me replenishing my supply for years to come.  Suddenly, my jealous little lashes were a length that would compete with any lash extensions around!  Lancôme Grandiose Extreme is a must-try if you really want your eyes to POP.  This waterslide addict is also looking forward to testing out the waterproof version of Grandiose Extreme!

Let’s get back to that applicator design.  The cool curvy “Swan Neck” applicator wand isn’t just an attempt to be stylish and unique.  This curvy design helps the wand hit those hard-to-reach corner lashes with just a swivel.  It’s genius!

Retail price is $32 per gorgeous bottle!  Looking to get more bang for the buck?  Check out the Grandiose Extreme gift set for $39 that includes full-sized Grandiose Extreme Mascara, Cils Booster XL (mascara primer), and Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover! What a steal!

Retailers include Lancome-usa.com, Nordstrom.com, NeimanMarcus.com, Bloomingdales.com, and Saks.com.
