when you use this mascara your lashes stay put - you can go to bed and wake up and they still look fresh and amazing - no flaking and still curled

- Sephora User



amazing length and volume

- Sephora User

makes lashes long and not too thick so they look natural

- Sephora User



this waterproof mascara is the best

- Nordstrom User

i liked it in the non waterproof version- and last time i bought it i accidentally got the waterproof version and i like it even better

- Sephora User


not smudging

- lasts all day- no flaking or smudging- no clumping (even after many coats, which i prefer)- formula keeps lashes soft, not stiff or brittle- hypnose achieves thick, long, curled lashes- doesn't cause "spider lash", tapers to a point on lashes- etc, etc, etc - i can't say enough good thing about thisin the following pictures, along with hypnose:- shu uemura eyelash curler- lancome artliner liquid eyeliner- many coats of hypnose (the way i like) to build effect

it doesn't smudge or flake

- Nordstrom User



it makes my lashes so unbelievably long, doesn't clump, and really defines my lashes

- Sephora User

i naturally have medium length, undefined lashes

- Sephora User



i am asian with straight lashes, and this mascara holds a curl really well

- Sephora User

really lifts lashes and makes them look fuller and longer

- LancôMe User


not clumping

no clumps, no transfer

- Sephora User

doesn't leave clumps or panda eyes which is a blessing

- Debenhams User



it doesn't flake off during the day, and it stays on really well, it looks fresh and dramatic until i wash it off at night

- Sephora User

the oscillation intensity does a great job of coating my lashes and making it look thick but it doesn't hold a curl and makes my lashes look thick but droopy (if it makes sense)

I bought this masacra right after my dad passed away because I knew that I would need a waterproof mascara to not smudge or drip right off when I cried. I was recommended by a sales associate to try the Make Up Forever, Smoky Lash. However, the Smoky Lash would come off when I wiped my tears. So, I was recommended the Lancôme, Hypnôse Waterproof - Custom Volume Mascara, which was supposedly swim-proof. Boy-oh-boy, this mascara EXCEEDED my expectations! Unlike the Smoky Lash, Hypnôse stays on through anything! I can put this on in the morning and cry all day without it smudging off onto a tissue (ie. my dad's funeral)! It is amazing! Not only is it extremely durable, but it is also the best mascara to not clump (I've tried Smoky-Lash & Dior Show, which are dry, clumpy, and hard to apply because of their larger brushes)! Hypnôse goes on smoothly, especially with the help of it's small brush. If you accidently get it on your eyelid or under your brow, which I always do, just lick your finger and wipe it off. I get so many compliments on my eyelashes and all I do is curl them and apply two coats of Hypnôse. I have attached photos of me with each of the Smoky Lash and Hypnôse mascaras. I assume that the Smoky Lash looks more faint than the Hypnôse because of it's dryness. Therefore, making it harder to stick to the lashes, while the Hypnôse is more wet and holds onto the lashes no problem. P.S. I have gone swimming while wearing Hypnôse and it actually stayed put! I was a little worried after going swimming and sitting in the hot-tub 12 hours after applying it (8am-8pm), and I was very eager to check my face in a mirror. However, there was no reason for me to fear because this mascara does what it says it's going to do. I will never use another mascara, even if this one takes a little extra work to remove. An extra minute (literally one minute), is worth having a mascara that stays put through anything. My next trial of this mascara is going to be an hour long hot yoga practice, but I have no doubts that it will stay put because I was sweating in the hot-tub and it didn't move. I will let you know how it goes. ;) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Truly waterproof!

I was distraught when YSL stopped making my favorite waterproof mascara. I tried everything from the very expensive to drugstore brands. In the Florida humidity everything flaked or smudged! This is the only one that stays put all day! The only drawback is that it clumps up a bit. Maybe that's because I apply it in a heavily air-conditioned environment. However, I have found a solution that doesn't affect the hold at all. I add about 6 drops of sterling saline eye drops, shake and that's it! I'm left once again with a smooth mascara that's relatively clump free. Another thing, one coat and you can get a natural look. Layer it for more a more dramatic effect. I even workout outside with this mascara and it stays put. Love it!

Great for Straight Lashes

I have straight, long eyelashes that are super hard to curl and like to go straight again when I put on mascara. If I don't curl them and put on mascara they get tangled with my lower lashes and brush up against my sunglasses, so curling is a necessity! I have been using the same drugstore mascara forever since it was the only one that kept a little curl in my lashes, but even that was too wet when I used a new tube and straightened them out. It was also a nightmare to wash off and didn't wear well throughout the day, it totally lost its impact ended up looking like I didn't have mascara on. I have been on a quest to find a new mascara forever and I have tried so many mascaras, including some by Dior, Chanel, Lancome and MAC. I have to say I love the waterproof Hypnose. Right out of the box it was dry enough to hold curl in my lashes and I can layer several coats on to build up volume and length.. My eyelashes look super long and thick and they don't look spidery. It doesn't flake off during the day, and it stays on really well, it looks fresh and dramatic until I wash it off at night. It washes off pretty easily too, I just use the Philosophy Purity face wash and it seems to come off fine. It is totally worth every pennn! if you have straight eyelashes like mine try it out (along with the Shu Uemura eyelash curler which is now discontinued in the US and super hard to find, but worth it if you can find it!) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Maybe I got a bad one. The formula was dry and did not build well. It did not volumize or lengthen significantly. I will not repurchase as it was also much pricier than better performing mascaras I have used. Interestingly I have tried the non waterproof version of this and found it to perform as advertised. Only thing though is I need the waterproof versions to keep a curl with my lashes, and to prevent flaking and smudging by the end of day (oily skin).

My New 'Must Have' Makeup

A waterproof mascara has always been a must have for me, for a couple of reasons...contacts, oily skin, heat & humidity (Florida), ocean/pool, etc. Finding a good one has always been a challenge. I usually purchase the cheaper mascaras, finding that they work just as good, if not better than their counterparts; that is, up until now. I went looking for a new mascara because mine, like all makeup that seems to really work for me, had been discontinued. I was actually looking to try another brand but, I was told, it isn't being carried in the stores, yet. I told the sales associate what I was looking for, and she said made a suggestion, saying she liked both the Lancôme Hypnose and the Definicils, although she had never tried the waterproof versions of either of them. I would have chosen Definicils, but they were out of Waterproof; so I went with Hypnose Waterproof. I am very glad for it all. My lashes are long, but it made them longer. They have a natural curl to them and it added more. It have them just the right amount of volume - mine are thin, and fine naturally, so this is important; with them being long they need lots of volume. And I have yet to see even a smudge, no burning or stinging either. I am a happy customer. No more cheap mascaras for me! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Looking for a mascara (drugstore or high end) I need length. A mascara that’s so lengthening it looks like I have fake lashes. Help a girl out.
