Courbe Virtuose – Lancome’s Latest Mascara

I may have found the next mascara that’s “Holy Grail” material. (In case you’re unfamiliar with this term, Holy Grail is when you find something that’s the best of the best, always works for you, and a product that you would buy again and again. You could have a holy grail foundation, top coat, blush, etc. or you could have something that’s “good enough” but still not good enough to stop you for searching for the next best thing, i.e. not your holy grail. See the distinction?)

Introducing Lancome’s Courbe Virtuouse. This mascara’s wand has a side with long bristles and a side with short bristles. You start with the longer bristles and turn the wand as you work it through your lashes. What happens is that it really grasps on to your lashes and makes sure that mascara is applied all the way through your lashes which makes them look super long and defined. Since it’s gripping them and the wand is curved, then your lashes will be slightly curled as well. The simplicity of the design combined with the fact that it really works is pure genius.

Holt Renfrew already has this mascara on its counters and I suspect that other department stores will be getting it really soon. Try it out for yourself and used correctly you will not be disappointed.

    hi! do you know if this is waterproof? i love the lancome l’extreme mascara, but find that only the waterproof one works well for my short Asian lashes.

    No, it is not waterproof, but it is long wear which means that it wears without flaking or smudging no matter what the conditions.
