I went to the launch of the new Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara ($35 CAD/10ml) over two months ago and at that time I couldn’t even share any imagery with you of this amazing mascara. I am so excited to be able to introduce you to the latest mascara release from one of the brands who does mascara best; Lancôme.
Why was I so excited to share this mascara with you? Well my beautiful girl crush Rema of The Burgundy Book tested out the mascara on herself at the event and the results were nothing short of astounding. Now I’ve had the chance to test it out on myself with equally impressive results. Grandiôse is all about Length, Curve, and Volume and gives you a wide-angle fan lash effect thanks to it’s innovative swan neck wand.
Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara redefines mascara with it’s breathtaking and avant-garde packaging which all came about due to the need for a different mascara tube to house the unique swan neck wand. The tube is voluptuously curved and resembles a champagne bottle. It is dressed in deep black that transforms with a subtle graduated effect to a smokey effect on the tip revealing the iconic Lancôme rose. The Curve of the wand allows the formula to be mixed with every use which hopefully will stop all the naughty mascara wand pumpers in their tracks.
The short twisted design of the Grandiôse wand allows it to adapt to all eye shapes and reach all of the curves of the eye with a flick of the wrist. One might think it would be difficult to adjust to such an unusual wand but it is actually incredibly intuitive and it feels very natural as soon as you start using this precisely positioned brush.
The shape of the wand and the high-tech bristles allow you to reach all 6 zones of the eye while adapting to the contours of your face. No more contortionism trying to avoid the prominent areas of your face like your nose, cheekbones, and eyebrow arch.
The gorgeous Penélope Cruz is the face of Lancôme Grandiôse and I must say I love how her skin shines through in the promo pic. I can see all her adorable freckles and even, (gasp), her pores. Yay for Lancôme not photoshopping the heck out of this promo image!

Grandiôse held the beautiful curl for me all day and I didn’t experience and smudging or flaking. It easily removes with my oil cleanser.
Lancôme Grandiôse in Noir is available now at all Lancôme counters and Lancome.ca.
