Vanity. I am guilty as charged. And will confess I wanted this mascara so much because of the gorgeous – and gorgeous doesn’t quite describe – packaging. Something about the hearts and the words “limited edition”. The Lancôme loved Doll Eyes mascara has received an adorable gown. Yes, it shall go to the ball.
Packaging aside, the review boils down to the Doll Eyes mascara. The wand is funnel shaped, to give inner corner lashes more definition and outer corner more volume. The bristles are medium-long size and of a medium consistency – not too hard, not too soft. The formula is medium weight.
I am a big fan of Lancôme mascaras and this product didn’t disappoint; it gives good volume, but lacks a bit in definition. You can also notice the heavier coating on the outer corners for the desired doll eye effect.
Lashes do look lovely with only two coats, as seen above. Three coats make lashes look quite lush. Four makes them start to clump. Admittedly, I don’t spend as much time carefully applying each coat as I should, so I stop at three.
Pretty with content. What else does a girl need?
Have you tried the Doll Eyes mascara? What do you think?

Never tried Doll Eyes. But Lancome Mascara always seems dry to me, especialy in the samples I received. So I was never motivated to actually buy a tube.
Actually, now that you pointed that out, I can see it – even when new, their formula is not lusciously creamy, and they do go dry quicker than other good brands… I do like it but in all honesty, the packaging made me go for it, hahahahaha.
I’ve been using the Eyeko more often (I think you’d like the formula, three months on and it is still quite “wet” and shiny) and also MAC Extended Play Gigablack, but not everyone likes that – it’s amazing for definition, but volume isn’t its business 😀
