Lancôme is surely famed for their mascaras, so when a new one launches I am always in line to try it. 

I have to say though, although Lancôme has been a leader in the mascara field for decades, other brands have certainly stepped up their game and became a rival, so they do in fact have more to prove than ever before because there are now a lot of other choices that live up to the same lash standards. I have used Lancôme mascara for years and although my top current favourite is not made by them, they are lash legends as well as many other things. 

Lancôme is, in fact, renowned for fragrance and I love that this new launch is in keeping with the Idôle range and the image is beautiful. The Idôle fragrance launched back in Summer 2019 and was all about being your own idole and a new generation of icons. I love this message.

So the brand new LASH IDÔLE MASCARA is said to be a non-clumping mascara that targets every single lash for instantly longer, lifted eyelashes.

The Wand/Formula 

The curved shaped wand has 125 different bristle sizes and 360 micro-bristles as well as a radical new gel emulsion mascara formula providing a feather-light feel and zero clumps that last up to 24h wear. I have to also add in just how lightweight it feels to hold; the packaging for me doesn't feel as luxe as Lancôme usually does I have to say, but I do love the rosegold/black styling. Maybe this is reducing the use of plastics perhaps?

The Results

First impressions wise, I am not usually a fan of a curved shaped wand as I find them harder to fit around the eye but this one has been cleverly designed. The side with the shorter sized bristles do in fact catch every single lash and you can really 'push' the lashes upwards whilst the longer bristles on the outer part of the wand really splay the lashes out in a fan kind of stylee which helps you to define your lashes and make sure that they don't clump by combing through. The formula is superb. It stays put, doesn't flake or smudge and is super easy to remove. 

The first layer will add some length and plot out your lashes whilst a second will bulk out your lashes and really define them. You need to work fast before it sets but adding more still keeps your lashes feeling soft and movable without any clumps. It ultimately gives you a really fluttery, fanned out lash look making it so feminine and so pretty. Oh, and it's actually superb at defining your lower lashes as the wand is ideal for it! 

I will say I had to use this mascara a few times to get used to it because I wasn't blown away first try but now I do in fact love it. This is a mascara for very defined, fluttery lashes. Almost like a natural strip lash where they are not big, not clumpy but just fluttery and pretty and very doll-like in fact. It gives you medium volume as the wand will capture every lash you have, lengthening in the way of a 'push up' and oomph at the root of your lashes without getting messy. I think you could struggle with this one if you have straight, short lashes as I don't think you will like the shape of the wand, but I could be wrong. My lashes are quite long and easy to work with (thanks to my lash growth serums) so this really did work on mine. My holy grail By Terry Lash Expert does give me longer lashes than this one does but the overall look here is super pretty

Some of my favourite Lancôme mascaras have been Grandiose, Definicils and Monsieur Big and I think this one is a great mix of the Definicils and Hypnose in one.

Lancôme Lash Idôle Mascara

In short, Lash Idôle is a really lovely mascara that you may need to use a few times before finding your lash groove! I love how the wand captures every lash and really fans out and defines lashes. It took me a few uses then realised I loved the quite natural fluttery lash look that it gave me. It is perfect everyday mascara that should behave and stay put. Obviously not an essential "wow you must buy this" but I would say it does just as it states so do try it if you were thinking about it and fancy a change!
