Most Helpful Positive Review Almost perfect!
I'm a mascara snob. I've probably tried hundreds because I have very particular lashes and most mascaras do not work for me so I was excited to try this new mascara because it's my favorite makeup product.
My lashes are straight, thin and super long which is why I always curl them and wear waterproof mascara because if I wear regular ones, the curl doesn't hold.
That's why to test it, I put both a quick coat of my go-to waterproof mascara + 2 coats of Lash Idôle on my right eye & 2 coats of Lash Idôle only on my left eye. You can see the differences I'll be talking about in the pictures!
This mascara is not waterproof but surprisingly did not wear my lashes down and kept a slight curl. I wasn't expecting that at all!
It claims to be lash lifting, voluminizing & clump-free. I'd say if you have naturally curly lashes or if your lashes can hold a curl without the help of waterproof mascara, you'd love this mascara for its lifting effects as well as clump-free benefits. However, I did not experience major volume. I prefer a natural looking lash so I don't mind it but it's claiming "intense volume" and I didn't get that.
I did love the wand, so easy to use and coated all of my lashes (even the baby tiny and corner ones!!) which is very difficult for me to do. My bottom lashes usually clump very easily but this one was perfect for them!
But I wouldn't personally buy this because the brand isn't cruelty-free and it's not waterproof which doesn't help my lashes. If they came up with a waterproof version, I wouldn't mind receiving it as a gift. I will continue using it on top of my waterproof mascara because I really liked the wand and its effect on my bottom lashes.
I think for someone who doesn't have any curl holding issues or buys from non-cruelty-free brands, this mascara would be 4.5 stars.
I give it 4 stars because it just didn't give me that curling effect that I love and it wouldn't be cost-effective to buy it just to be on top of a mascara that already fulfills all my must-haves.
Most Helpful Critical Review Average mascara
I've been wearing Lancôme mascara for years. Most popular type i purchase is the Hypnôse Drama Instant Volumizing Mascara. I got a complimentary sample of Lancome Lash Idole Mascara for review purposes. I like the brush with varying sized bristles. I've been using this mascara for a week and it hasn't started to thicken and definitely doesn't clump on lashes. The formula dries quickly, last all day and is removed easily with just water. No real need for makeup remover. It is a nice black mascara but I haven't noticed a significant amount of lift or volume like advertised.

I got a sample of this as a December birthday gift, and I'm so glad I did! It makes my lashes look amazing! Definitely will be buying the full sized when this one runs out!
I would not buy again
CeCe from Rocklin, CA
This product had several great reviews and some not so great. I was wanting to try a new mascara so I purchased the travel size. Unfortunately, I have to agree with the not so great comments that it is clumpy. Mainly because too much mascara comes out on the brush. The mascara stays on well, doesn't flake (even after 8 or more hours), and it doesn't transfer onto my lower lids.
I've used all Lancome mascaras
Adrienne from Chicago, IL
I have worn most all Lancome mascaras. From hyponse original to drama. To Grandiose and Doll Lash. Back to everyday definicils to my favorite monsiure big. THIS is ONE OF THE BEST! I have been searching for curl, lift and separation. It gives just enough volume for an everyday wear. The lift is by far the best I have used. The control of volume is custom to your preferences. If you are looking for a high lift and noticeable lashes this is for you!
New favorite mascara
Converted from South Carolina
I bought this product because my desert island beauty product (the Lancome Cils Booster XL) came as a free travel size with purchase. I usually use Urban Decay Perversion but this may be my new favorite! I love the shape of the brush. I feel like it separates and lifts my lashes. When paired with the Cils Booster, I have very full lashes. You NEED this mascara!
Issa from Machesney Park, IL
This mascara is great for me. It feels light on the lashes and it gives you a very natural look. If you want something dramatic this is not for you.
My new favorite mascara!
Andi from GA
I love this mascara! I rarely leave reviews, but this one is worth it. My thin lashes grow downward and this mascara lifts, curls & separates! It doesn't clump either. I'm hooked!
It's good but there are much better
RosePol from Washington, MI
It is pretty good but certainly doesmnot give you the most volume for me when even with their white conditioning pre-mascara. Good brush and it does not clump up at all.

I absolutely love the gel formula! My lashes aren't breaking and feel better after wearing this mascara! Its has white tea extracts, antioxidants conditioning care! Feels like a beauty treatment while wearing makeup love it! Nice lift and volume! Zero clumps!
Wow, amazing volume and length!
Ann from Tucson
I have very short and fine lashes so I am always on a lookout for a good thickening, lengthening and volumizing mascara. This one is exactly what I was looking for: it thickens my thin lashes, makes them much longer and curls them without the use of a lash curler. It has a curved brush, which creates the curled look. All that without clumping or weighing down the lashes!
Sandy from California
This mascara was great! it really gave some length to my eyelashes and made me look more awake!

StaceyLRL from New York
It's ben a lot of fun wearing this mascara. I don't have to use an eye lash curler so moments are saved and that adds up! Fascinatingly, I got a compliment over zoom about how long my lashes were. Wow!
One of the Best!
KSull3 from Pittsburgh, PA
The new Lancôme Lash Idole mascara is probably one of my recent favorites. The wand works really well at getting all of my lashes coated, and the formula makes my lashes look full and lengthened.
Maricelis T. from Chicago, IL
-I love love love this mascara. It lengthens my lashes and spreads them out beautifully. It's black, black how I like it and it doesn't feel uncomfortable at all.
E Kenslow from Oregon
When used with the conditioner, you only need one application to get all the volume and length to maximize your lashes. I'm also getting some for my Daughter's in laws.
Love it. No clumps is true
Walky from Corpus Christi TX
This mascara has a great wand and I love the way the applicator coats all my lashes. The formula can be easily removed and that is one of my favorite things about because I hate mascaras that are hard to remove. It made my lashes longer, not so much with the volume, but you could definitely see a difference.
It is not waterproof and will start running if it rains, but that is to be expected
Overall, I really liked this product and would recommend!
FarmWife2010 from Iowa
I am extremely picky about my mascara and how it looks after applied (no clumps, not caked on etc). I absolutely love this mascara. The wand makes it so easy to apply the mascara evenly. My lashes look amazing and I have no had any issues with flaking or clumping. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Surprised at how much I like this!
Dee from CO
Good mascara and worth the price but still trying to find a great oil based remover to help get it off at the end of the day.
Kait108 from Oklahoma
I love this mascara! It really lengths my lashes without becoming clumpy. The wand is slightly curved which really helps get all the lashes evenly coated.
Definitely recommend this Mascara!
Tia from Brooklyn, New York
I have a good amount of long lashes, but they are straight & blond. I have a plethora of Mascaras I have bought & usually it take a combination of 3 of them to get the look I want. I read about this new Lancôme Mascara & once again "took the leap" ...it was well worth it. It definitely thickens, lengthens, & curls. And easy to remove. My new Favorite!
I love it! The best mascara!
LoriB from Iowa
Gives lashes lift! No clumping at all. I love that!
Very happy from Wisconsin
Apply the mascara was very pleasant. It applies evenly. The mascara added a small curl to my eyelashes the only issue I had was when I removed the the make-up. I had like little plastic piece all over my face.
Ladybug from Little Rock AR
This mascara is Fabulous! And I get so many compliments by people who know what they are talking about. Highly recommended. Buying for the third time Because my girls love it too. Had to get them a bottle so they stay out of mine.
Best Mascara ever
Natasha from Pittsburgh PA
I think this is definitely the best Mascara I have used in the recent years. I hate mascaras that are too heavy on my eye lids. This one feels like I am not wearing anything on my eyes, so so light. The curved brush definitely helps with the application. It is better than some of the other mascaras I have used recently like Bambi from l'oreal. I am definitely buying this again from my Ulta store
