Most Helpful Positive Review Thick lashes with one application
I got a sample of the black with a previous purchase and instantly fell in love. It goes on thick with one coat. You have to brush through with the applicator a couple of times to separate your lashes; it is worth it for the effect. Makes my thin lower lashes show up and look full. I use both black and brown; both are high volume. I like the shape of the applicator (on the full tube, not the sampler). For high drama you can add a second coat; it gives a 'false lash' look. Love it!
Most Helpful Critical Review I'll Stick With Other Lancome Mascara Instead
This mascara ("Hynose Drama WaterProof") is definitely waterproof -- even in hot humid conditions such as a sauna room or hot tub room. However, I will probably not purchase it again because I find the thick handle and oddly-shaped applicator brush to be awkward/difficult to use and the texture of the product was not as smooth as I'd like. The brush handle is simply too "chunky" for my hand and that makes it harder to control. The brush itself is configured in an odd wavy shape that also makes it more difficult to control the amount of product that is deposited onto my eyelashes. I found the texture of the product to be clumpy, requiring a comb-through with a dry brush or eyelash comb. The intense black color is nice, though.

I had such high hopes for this mascara. I wipe the excess off and still manage to get large clumps! The pigment is great, but the clumps are not.

I have trouble with this mascara. It comes on heavy and clumpy unless I wipe the wand off once I remove it. I expect better from Lancome.!

I was so excited to try this mascara. However, it stunk my eye so bad. I might have allergy with its perfume. I tried again second time and it still hurts my eye. The formula make it really clumpy on my lashes. So I decided to throw it away!!!!

I've tried soo many mascaras. I only use waterproof/water resistant (bc possible tears, and if I look down too long/much throughout the day mascara smudges). I've tried Better Than Sex, Lash Paradise, the Essence Princess one, Sky High, and more that I can't remember.
I have decently long lashes, but they aren't naturally curled, and they're blonde.
I get frustrated with mascara because they all make my lashes fall, some more so than others. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I feel like I look terrible when I see my lashes pointing straight, or when they're pointing in a variety of angles. Some mascaras will do good at first, and then after a few uses it's like it's not the same.
I found this on a review of the Lancôme cils booster xl (which, btw, I hated. Had high hopes, but within seconds my lashes would fall, after I curled them) and decided to give it at chance.
I've only used it for about a week, but it's so great. I don't know what smell people complain about. Usually I'm sensitive to those, but I don't smell anything crazy unless I'm intentionally sniffing the wand. I use my japonesque lash curler (love the shape) and then apply the mascara as directed. You have to make sure the cave of the wand is what's brushing the lashes, at least initially. The application is quick, and I use about 2 coats, maybe 1.5 (adding to the tips).
I worked at 5am today, so I had this on from about that time until 9pm that same day (I'm about to remove it) and it's still perfect. I even laid down for a while, and no transferring to my under eyes.
Obviously if you lay down on your lashes that's going to distort them, but I didn't today.
I don't find it to be hard to remove either, seems like a normal waterproof mascara. I put the blue micellar water on a cotton round, hold it there for a little while, gently wiggle side to side and up a few times, and it's gone.
Would highly recommend
Love this mascara!!!!! An OG.
Knight from Dallas, TX
I came back to this mascara and it doesn't disappoint. My lashes of whatever I have works for me! & I wait until their fully dry wait like 10 mins. Then curl them! But that's what works for me since I have no lashes. Somehow you can actually see them with this mascara. LOVE IT

Staple mascara! I love this stuff! Makes my eyelashes pop. Definitely a fav
Jordan from Tennessee
This used to be my holy grail! Best mascara I've ever used!!! Lasted all day, pretty outcome and didn't smudge or run. The past 3 or 4 times I have purchased it I've been extremely disappointed… it's clumpy, dries out fast and irritated my eyes. I don't know if the formula has changed or what but I am deeply saddened.
Love product, but only found it at Ulta

The only makeup I use is mascara and love this one.
Can't get it off
VaBAMR from Virginia
I loved this mascara when I applied it. My lashes were long, very black, no clumping, and no flaking! Then I tried to get it off… I applied it Saturday night, it is now Tuesday and despite 4 different removal methods, it is still on my lashes. Last night I used a greasy balm which was the most effective so far but I lost a ton of lashes in the process. So great mascara but the waterproof version is borderline permanent
I would not buy this product again.
Mrs. P from Arizona
It works wonderfully. But I cannot get it off. I've tried higher end eye makeup removers and online tips as well. It is like glue.
Bad brush = uneven distribution
MK from CO
The shape of this mascara brush was the initial draw to purchasing. But when using it, the shape makes the product clump up and get goopy on one side and you have to scrape a lot of excess product off. The formula may be better with a different applicator but the result is goopy clumpy lashes unfortunately.

There were a few times I got it to not look clumpy. But most of my applications made me look like Tammy Faye, which is not my preference!
My favorite mascara
EllessKay from Florida
This is my go-to and favorite mascara. Out of the countless mascaras I've tried, this one gives the most length and volume. I absolutely love the way it makes my lashes look. I always get asked if I'm wearing false lashes or last extensions. I don't use the waterproof version because it's so hard to remove and I despise the smell. It may be pricey but it's worth it in the quality.
Janira from Los Angeles, CA
If you are looking for the perfect mascara, look no further! Hands down the best mascara I have ever used. Does no smear and is easy to apply.
I've Lost Count of Repurchases!
SarahCarolina from Charleston, SC
This is the only mascara that I've used since the first time I used it! Two coats can mimic the look of false lashes, especially if it is layered over Lancome's primer mascara. It's a must-have for me. If I'm in a hurry, I will just wear this mascara with concealer and a quick swipe of blush!
Great Formula, Terrible Wand!
MooNvoN from Nashville, TN
I couldn't pass up on the amazing price for 3 full size mascaras, and this mascara was included in the set.
As mentioned, the formula is great and works even better when coupled with the CILS Booster XL lash primer. But I am so disappointed in the wand applicator and the way the mascara gathers up in huge clumps all over it. It's almost impossible to apply the mascara without getting large clumps in my eyelashes. I have to use an old mascara to brush through my lashes after application.
If possible, I'd give the formula 4 stars. But the wand ruins it so much (I'd give it 1 star), so that's why I gave the mascara an overall 3 stars.
So far so good
Nonnie from Michigan
-1 star because it does seem to be a lot for so little product... but it's been waterproof without smudging on hydrated undereyes, it's black and it makes my lashes look nice. It can be clumpy so be careful but if applied well it's very nice, as I read before my purchase.
My favorite mascara
Obxdee from Nags Head NC
I love this mascara and I've tried all the major brands and this works best for me! I get long thick lashes quickly and have been asked if I wear false lashes. I think it is easily removed at night with baby oil. This has never irritated my eyes as some others have. I know this is the best for me and I no longer try any other types.
Not bad, takes awhile to dry
SassySuuzq from Stafford, VA
I have the hardest time getting my little lashes to look long and curled. I have to use an eyelash curler. I try to use a waterproof mascara so it holds the curl. I have the Most trouble finding a waterproof mascara that doesn't go on very wet and clumpy in the beginning. I wish I could find a curling mascara that doesn't go on heavy and hold the curl. I've tried Benefits They're real and the mascara will hold but but minutes later they start to lose their curl then poof they are straight out front again and no curl. So hard to find a good mascara!!
Not worth it
Ilana from NY
The smell is horrible. I have to stop breathing in order to apply the mascara on my lashes. Even once it's applied, it's as if I smell it from my lashes. The formula when dried is clumpy and flakey. The only good thing is that the color is very black and buildable.
Christina from Buffalo
This mascara smells terrible!!! I can still smell it even though I applied it two hours ago. Do not recommend.
Favorite for years
DJ from Indiana
Goes on smoothly. Just use good mascara sense and start a new one every three months.
Makes lashes long and lush!
Wen from Va
I love this mascara. It does not clump or flake. Goes on smooth separating lashes. I have gotten several compliments on lashes since using. Makes my lashes longer and thicker.
DT from Vacaville
I do like that mascara last all day , but the brush does clumps up a lot.
I love Lancôme products, but disappointed with this one.
Blackest mascara ever !
Mascara junky from Braintree ma
I haven't found anything as black as this mascara to date. Not only that , my lashes stayed curled and no smudges and flakes. Easily washed off with water and soup. I just love it. I wish it was cheaper but then again it lasted for months I can justify it lol
