Rated 4.32 out of 5 stars
I think I have tried at least 15 different kinds of mascara to find the One that stays put. I have Asian-fatty eyelids and little pouches under my eyes that catch every little smudge and transfer, and I end up having to skip mascara and eyeliner altogether to avoid having raccoon eyes by noon.
I actually was recommended the Lancome Cils Booster XL, a primer, and I bought this mascara to wear on top of the primer, since I heard that Lancome's mascaras are the best. They cost a little more than what I would normally pay for mascaras, but it was absolutely worth every penny! Worn with the primer (I haven't tried this mascara without Cils Booster XL), it lasts all day, doesn't smudge a bit, and doesn't flake like the cheaper mascaras. And even though it boasts all this staying-power, it wipes off so easily with my cleansing wipe in the evening. I have become a Lancome fan for life!
i am 75 years old and use mascara daily. i purchased this one aboard a royal caribbean cruise ship on dec 14, 2012. today, jan 13, 2013, i must throw it out!!! it did not perform initially and hasn't done better with time. imagine, one month and it's finished. ugh the results were no better than any other mascara and less than most. clumps. dried so quickly that applying a second coat was impossible. by the third week the clumps were severe. one notable cosmetic issue is that of older women whose lashes are thinning. no company seems to address that issue and the result is clumping which is very unnattractive. could this one, which has such great reviews, have been past its sell by date by sitting on the cruise ship shelf too long? i assume a mascara only begins to deteriorate after being opened. in any case, will never buy this product again.

Great volume and separation! The brush shape works well for getting all the little corner lashes. Definitely happy I tried this. My eye lashes are thinning and this gives them a longer, fluffier look with just one to two coats. Does smudge a bit but no more than any other non-waterproof mascara.

I've been using this waterproof mascara for 20+ years and yes, I still have healthy normal eyelashes. It's my go to for lengthening and thickening. It holds a curl. It's buildable. It doesn't burn or irritate my eyes. It does not smudge easy, by any means. Even with heavy sweating and humidity. If i just let it go, it takes days of showering before it is completely all gone. This mascara is the O.G. of mascaras. It deserves better ratings, which is just crazy to me it doesn't.
If it's flaking, the tube is old or dried out, needs replacing …….OR…….. your're not starting with fresh clean eyelashes. Usually, the latter. Adding new product on yesterday's application. The tube lasts months if I allow it. Wipes off easy from skin if wiped off when wet.
My only con would be, is that I bend the brush slightly at it's base to get a better application. Doing so, I can get the smallest of lashes and the corners. That's never been a problem. Keeps exactly where i bend to.
I hope this product is NEVER discontinued. It be a sad day for mascara.

I've used this mascara for years and will continue to do so. It holds a curl and is very buildable. Simply the best for me!

Personally, I was not blessed with long, natural eyelashes. So, over the many years that I've worn eye make-up, I have probably bought every mascara out there that promised to give me the lashes I've always wanted. I may have gotten lucky here & there but since trying this mascara, I have found my piece of gold! This mascara is so amazing to me. It literally provides the look of lashes you'd see on a doll. I absolutely love it & it's my total "go-to" mascara everyday now. If your lashes are short & skimpy like mine, try this mascara. You won't be disappointed because you'll look like an absolute doll!

Hypnôse Doll mascara gives me control over the whole eye look! My lashes are fuller, defined and with a quick mascara comb through after application, I have pretty lashes, not clumpy & individual lashes stand out! Day or night use!

The hypnose waterproof mascara is light but extremely effective in lifting and filling lashes! My go-to.

I've been using Lancôme mascara for decades now. Can't leave the house without it because I have blonde lashes. This one is my all time favorite. I always have a few tubes on hand. It separates and lengthens perfectly.

Hypnose Waterproof is everything you want in a long wearing mascara. Looks good after a morning workout and stays all day. It comes off easy with the Bi-Facil makeup remover.

I've used all Lancome Mascara for decades. Doll Lashes is the best everyday mascara. Wear all day, never, ever smears. Removes easily and keeps lashes healthy.

I've been wearing Lancome mascara since I was a teenager and Isabella Rossellini was the model!! Now, I still use Lancome mascara but I mix different formulas depending on how I feel. The motorized brush is great for separating lashes.

the applicator on this mascara makes application so much easier because it's narrow at the tip! My fave!
Mo'sMom from Covington, LA
I find that all Lancome mascaras are good but some of the applicators make it hard to apply to lower lashes. This applicator has a narrow point that makes it much easier. I still have to apply Idole on top of it to give my lashes more volume or I would give Hypnose Doll Lashes a 5 star rating.

This is my favorite mascara. It doesn't give me the tarantula lashes others do . I have used it for several years . I wished it came in waterproof for this specific mascara.
Other than that it is perfect.

Goes on smooth, looks amazing every time. I've been using this mascara for years now and out remains my favorite ever! I've tried other high end mascara's like thrive, but in my opinion nothing beats Dolls Lashes.
SSRM from Stonington CT
I've used this product for years. Tried other brands-but, this is always the best. Goes on smoothly and looks very natural and the waterproof type is even gentle on lashes.

The vibration technique in this Lancôme mascara helps to easily separate the lashes without causing over application.

I am very happy with this length creating mascara. Holds well, no smudging. Applicator stays nice the entire time of usage.
JenLK from undisclosed
This mascara as one of the best I have tried, and I've tried about a million! I am so incredibly picky about my mascara, and this one is very impressive. I get annoyed with how much product you get on the wand and how much product can be wasted because it's hard to get the mascara back into the tube after you pull it out, but other than that it's amazing!

I love this mascara so much - it's the perfect look and not chunky and it's the only brand I am not allergic to

Made my lashes longer and fuller. I have short, sparse eyelashes, but this mascara improves their appearance.
