I’m going to start this post by saying that high end mascaras aren’t normally something that I invest in at all. I would usually prefer to indulge when it comes to eye shadow palettes or lipsticks so quite honestly if I hadn’t been gifted this Monsieur Big mascara I probably never would have bought it myself.
Lancome have always been renowned for their mascaras so I should have known to expect great things from Monsieur Big but how much I liked it even surprised me. Firstly the brush is a dream for anybody who loves a volumising mascara, its nice and big and I find that it also curls the lashes as it coats them. I have long lashes but they’re very straight so this brush suits me perfectly, however I don’t think it’s the mascara for you if your lashes are short as I think the brush would be too big.
Secondly, and this is the thing that gives it the most brownie points for me, the pigment is insane. If you like your mascara black then Monsieur Big is the mascara for you. Anybody who follows my blog or social media pages will know that lack of pigment in my mascara or eye liner is my biggest pet hate so this really impressed me. I would go so far as to say that this is the most pigmented mascara I have used so far!!
As regards wearability Monsieur Big scores highly here too. Once it’s on it stays put, no smudges, no flaking and even though it doesn’t claim to be waterproof I’ve tested that too (by wearing it to a friends wedding) and again it didn’t budge. I’m honestly so impressed with it and with a price tag of €27 I know it’s definitely an investment but one that I would have absolutely no problem doing in the future. As I’ve said I’m so glad that I was given this product to try as otherwise I would have missed out big time.
As I’ve already mentioned this product has been given to me but all opinions as always are my own!!
