It’s always disappointing when the mascara you pick up promises to volumize and lengthen lashes, only to leave clumpy and limp bristles behind. If you’re tired of buying new ones – and quickly throwing them away – stop and try Lancôm’s Hypnôse Mascara. It’s a favorite of royals like Kate Middleton, who can afford the most expensive beauty products, but it only costs $28 on Amazon.
The formula lengthens and gives volume with every stroke. Plus, it goes on clump-free and leaves lashes with a defined finish.

Kate Middleton’s signature (and effortless) smokey eye look reportedly comes from Lancôme’s mascara. And it’s no surprise why. The formula is luxurious and offers buildable coverage that instantly lifts, lengthens and gives lashes volume. It comes in three shades: black, brown, and extra black. The extra black shade gives a dramatic boost to your eyes without smearing and clumping.
The wand is also worth talking about. It has an oversized brush that works through each lash to separate each strand of hair and give a smooth and even coat. And if you need to apply extra layers, the brush helps the formula apply clump-free.
The Princess of Wales isn’t the only fan. One reviewer said the mascara is “perfect for long lashes that aren’t full.” They also added, “That being said, the product adds great volume and dimension to your lashes. My annual mascara splurge!”
The Hypnôse Le Noir Elixir is even a good match for people with sensitive skin and allergies. Multiple customers report that the formula’s high-quality ingredients do not irritate their eyes.
“This mascara is a really good product,” wrote one satisfied mascara user. “Every mascara I’ve tried burns my eyes, but this one is gentle on my eyes. I have to give it to Lancôme, for living up to their reputation by using only high quality ingredients. Easy to apply, and the elongation results are instant. You don’t have to use a lot of product to get the length and some thickness. Worth paying more for.”
“I’ve been using this mascara for over 18 years now!” exclaimed one loyal fan. “In that time I’ve tried a few different brands, but I was never happy with them. I’ve tried many mascaras over 40 years, and this is my favorite and the only one I’ll buy.”
