A Threesome Made In Heaven: Lancome’s Best Selling Mascara, Mascara Base, And You

Lancome Base

What: Lancôme's Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base ($21.50) and Définicils Pro High Definition Curved Brush Mascara ($23.50)

Why: I’ve been hurt before by smooth talking beauty copy, so I’ll admit to a healthy dose of skepticism when I read such sweet nothings as "fuller, more intense" and “enhanced effect…” I don’t know if it’s because of the way my eyelids are shaped or what, but I have the hardest time finding mascara that not only looks great but STAYS great. Either it fades away into oblivion after a few hours or migrates en masse to just below my actual eyes, which is a good look if you’re Courtney Love or a raccoon. It seems, however, as though my search for The One has finally come to an end. Only instead of The One, I found… a dynamic duo. I know – kinky. But trust me — short of applying Eva Longoria-style fakies, this is the fullest and flutteriest your lashes are going to get. The recipe: Start with a nice coating of Lancôme's Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base. I don’t know exactly how it works, but it does – gives you just the boost you need. Follow with a liberal application of their Définicils Pro High Definition Curved Brush Mascara. The thick, curved brush makes an eyelash curler obsolete, and the luxe formula really does go on “smoothly and evenly.” The result: Lashes worth batting. You’ll need to use remover to get clean again – but isn’t it all about staying power anyway?
