Most Helpful Positive Review Best mascara I've ever purchased
Even though I have been a loyal Lancome user for 15 years, I have never written a review. This product is so amazing it made me WANT to come online and write a review!
I have been using other Lancome mascaras for years, and I bought this one to try simply because I had run out of a different one. I don't know if it's just the mascara itself or the combination with the primer, but I didn't realize until now just how amazing my eyelashes could be! This mascara looks even better than when I get fake eyelashes put on. I have never had so many compliments before.
I hope Lancome doesn't discontinue this product, as seems to be my luck whenever I find a Lancome product I love.
HIGHLY recommend this - it also doesn't' seem to smudge easily.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good Mascara, Faulty Packaging
I truly like this mascara, especially the Bois de Rose color. It?s difficult to find a shade that doesn?t look harsh against my 50-something fair complexion, and this shade is wonderful. However, the last three tubes I have purchased have failed before the product was half used. The rubber scraper ring at the top of the tube detaches and becomes lodged in the cap and cannot be removed. Without the scraper, the brush becomes hopelessly coated in mascara goop, rendering the whole tube useless. Very disappointing at Lanc?me prices. I will not be ordering any more.

Extreme-ly Long Lashes
RavenLily from Los Angeles, CA
I am so happy with this mascara, it does everything it promises! As a mature woman, my lashes have thinned and are not the length they once were. Enter Grandiose Extreme mascara and voila, long full lashes have re-appeared once again! I've read reviews where users are having difficulties with the wand or dispenser breaking, but please keep in mind this is not a straight wand as is the usual type. Having used Grandiose before, I realized that the wand is a curved swan-neck shape, so you must slowly and gently pull it out, and as you do so then turn it and follow the curve while removing it from the dispenser. If you try to pull it straight out you will likely have issues, but with a little tenderness it will repay you with giving your lashes the love they've been lacking with luscious, lovely length. :-)
Amazing lashes, but not the *most* comfortable
KC from Georgia
This mascara makes my lashes look AMAZING!! People ask me all the time if I'm wearing fake eyelashes, and to their surprise I always tell them it's the mascara. It's not the most comfortable to remove at the end of the day, but it's not intolerable or anything. So worth it to me.
Not worth it
Jl from Virginia
You can feel this mascara. It sounds weird but it's crunchy and thick and feels like it pulls your eye lashes. It doesn't look particularly attractive either- it dries clumpy. There are a ton of great reviews so maybe I just got a bad tube? Either way, I would not recommend especially for the price.
Car from New Jersey
I am very picky with mascara but this is worth buying. No regrets and my lashes look amazing!
Not a fan.
Tami from Iowa
Definitely adds length, but I could "feel" the mascara and it hurt my lashes. It also made my lashes too spikey and I like them more lush and full. Returned it.
Eyelashes No Longer MIA
MarianneA from Santa Clarita, CA
As I've aged my once long, full eyelashes have deserted me. I normally get pretty good results from Definicils but decided to try Grandiose Extreme, and I must say I'm Extreme-ly happy! My lashes appear much more voluminous and have reached lengths not seen for quite a few years. The mascara is a bit pricey but with my new-found lashes it's a price well-worth paying, oh and it doesn't clump either!
Leanne from Atlanta, GA
This mascara was EXTREMELY disappointing. The bristles are REALLY small and clumps eyelashes together. Also, its not "smudge-proof" like they claim, my mascara was smudged every day (even without touching my eyes at all).
Love this mascara, but not the delivery system...
Taty57 from San Franciso, CA
I have purchased the Grandiose mascara many times, I've been using it for many years since it came out, but many times as I use it the ring that controls the amount that comes out I guess stops working or something because I would get a glob of mascara, but I thought it's probably because it's getting older, until it happened to me again yesterday with a barely used jar of my grandiose mascara, I have used it three times and when I was gonna used it a big mess came out and I had to try to clean it and tried to use it like that, now I give up on this mascara I have loved, I wish Lancôme would fix this problem because the formula is the best. I would like to know what other Lancôme mascara compares to the Grandiose since I like the brand but I haven't try any other and I don't want to take another chance with the Grandiose as it is....For that reason I gave it 4 stars.
Long lashes, but clumpy
Ardella from Texas
It works great, but is dry and clumpy.
I would buy it again
Marla from Modesto, CA
I really like this mascara, it's a bit expensive.
Connie2052 from Springfield,Ohio
At first I loved this mascara, then one day I when I pulled out the wand I received a big glob. If I work the wand, I might get lucky and be able to use it. It used to be my go to mascara, but now I avoid it. Considering this was my first time using this brand and the price, I will not risk purchasing again.
One of my favourite mascaras!
caterina.n from Kyiv, Ukraine
It gives result in a minute or two. It stays on my lashes no matter what do I do during the day. Even when I have a hard-working rehearsal when sweat is running along the face and my eyes.
Great wand but ...
Groovey54 from Racine WI
I love working with this wand, But after a while the mascara gets flakey.
Des from Orlando Florida
Makes eyelashes super long!
Only mascara I will use
Texaschick from Dallas, TX
This is the only mascara I will use now. Have tried others, but always come back to this one. I have actually had people that thought my eyelashes were fake, because it makes them so long. Great product!
Nope! Choose a different Lancome!
Cassandra from Noblesville, IN
OK so the wand is easy to use once you get the hang of it but I don't love this mascara. I like the wand shape but it clumps my eyelashes. I have a system I've used to for years...2-3 coats of non-waterproof mascara followed by one coat of waterproof mascara. This ensures my weepy eyes don't make my mascara smudge but it's also possible to get my mascara off at the end of the day. I purchased both the waterproof and non-waterproof of this mascara to try this routine with. It was a mistake. I really didn't' like it which sucked because I love Lancome! Anyways, I'd recommend the Lancome Hypnose instead of this. It's never let me down!
Chloecat from Horsham PA
This was a total let down. I thought Lancôme made high quality makeup but I was wrong about this mascara. It does clump somewhat but I can usually work past that. It's the raccoon eyes by the end of the day! It's awful. I'm glad I only paid 1/2 price when Ulta had a sale. Will not buy again.
Me from Henderson Nevada
I love Lancome products! This mascara is the best yet. My first time purchasing this one and it my favorite!
My new favorite
Bea from New Castle, Colorado
I've use Lancôme mascara before but never this one. Now that I have gotten older my lashes are not as long as before. But with this mascara it does not matter.
OMG the best mascara ever
Deborah from Phoenix
This is the best mascara I have tried, and I have tried most brands. I am always looking for the right one and I found it with this. Please don't ever change your formula Lancome. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
COLOR of brown too DARK...looking for more natural brown.
ENDLESS from NORTH CAROLINA
I was looking for a more natural less harsh brown mascara. The product itself was fine, just not the right color for me. When you get older you need a less harsh and dark look,
Love the brush angle and the effect on my lashes
Suzegal1 from South Jersey
The angle of the brush Makes it easy to apply. I am older and my lashes are no longer long or thick. This is the best mascara for these problems. I have used all of Lancome's mascaras to come to this conclusion. The only drawback is that it doesn't seem to last as long as the other more recently used style.
I will definately contitnue to buy this product!
Kate from Littleton, CO
It does exactly what it says - adds volume, curls, and lengthens my lashes. I've considered lash extensions and I don't need to with this product. It's simply amazing! Plus, it doesn't flake off during the day and yet washes right off easily when I let the water run over my face for a bit. Try it - you will love it!
