GUEST Product Review: Lancome Flextencils

Guest Reviewer: Stina R

Name: Flextencils, Full Extension and Curving Mascara
Size: 6.5 mL
Approx. Price: $29 CAD

Colour Tried:
- Black

I have actually tried other types of mascara from this line include L'Extreme, Definicils and Hypnose and have found the Flextencils is my favourite.

To Purr About:
- after a few strokes lashes are instantly longer, I would say at least 1/6th longer than they were originally
- this is the only mascara out of the line that actually curves the lash, so there is no need for an eyelash curler!
- the formula was NEVER clumpy, even at the end of the tube
- the mascara does not flake off your eyelashes, it's more of a gel consistency so if rubbed it stays put (even non-waterproof)

Claws Out:
- had trouble removing it at night with just water and soap, but a basic eye makeup remover will get the job done
- for the average consumer, the mascara is a little pricey
- only available in brown and black
- when put on bottom lashes on a humid day, it tends to blend slightly into the lower eyelid

Final Comments:
I am a mascara whore, my lashes are medium fine, so it's hard to find a product that will plump, curl and lengthen them. I have tried many others from name brands such as Dior, Maybelline, Revlon, Benifit, CoverGirl and even the cheaper version of Lancome, L'Oreal. The money I put into trying numerous other mascaras is probably more than the one time purchase of this Lancome mascara. Yes, it is a little pricey, but definitely worth it.

Rating (out of 5):

Thanks for the review, Stina R!
