Lancome Virtuose Black Carat

Posted by Rica Francia at 12:24 PM
I don't know why this mascara from Lancome gets very low reviews from the consumers. I love this mascara! The only thing that is a "con" for me with this is that the formula is too dry. Too dry that I am afraid of getting it dried up before I get to finish the whole tube itself.

First off, the wand. I love the wand. The fact that it is curved in a U-shape makes life easier for me to apply the mascara. It helps me to curl up my lashes even on my bottom lash.

The formula not only gives me length but as well as volume, but not as dramatic as the Hypnose Drama though, because of its dry formula.

This is my first tube by the way. If my fear doesn't turn into reality, then, I might consider repurchasing this and restocking, because it is not available at Lancome counters in Hong Kong. I have to find ways of purchasing it online.

I use my Lancome Virtuose Black Carat Mascara together with my Chanel Beaute Des Cils Mascara Primer / Base and it works well together.

By the way, what difference does this make from the original Virtuose mascara?


Mascara has a very short shelf life. Once opened, it is best to toss it out after three months for hygienic sake. If it's unopened, it has a shelf life that can be upto two years.

I haven't tried any Lancome mascara yet it's not something I would want to splurge on, so far my Max Factor has been doing a great job for me. hehe

Try making the mascara sit in a glass of hot to warm water for a good 10-20 minutes. It helps making the consistency less dry, works with dried up lipgloss as well. :D
