Created in Japan, this waterproof mascara was designed with Asian lashes in mind.

With a flat side for instant volume and a conical side for lash separation, it is well-suited for people with fine lashes looking for definition. I particularly appreciate the minute tapered tip that can reach even the teensiest of lashes.

The only shade currently available is Noir Midnight, which ‘drapes lashes with moiré tints like the shimmering fabric of an evening gown’, says the brand. I like the description, moiré calling to mind the zigzag motions of mascara application.

Dressed in a sparkling tube, this mascara retails at S$50 here in Singapore and is already available at Sephora. It will officially launch at all Lancôme counters from 1 March 2013.

The faces of this mascara are model Daria Werbowy and that glamorous cartoon icon, Betty Boop. In a stroke (or two!) of animation fun, the latter has acquired defined eyelashes for the first time, thanks to this campaign. ;)

    very enticing altho’ $50 for a mascara is pretty unacceptable, particularly if you do throw them out within three months of opening. i don’t know about you but that price tag is pretty much indecent to me

      Hi Stella,

      I hope you managed to score a sample tube to try first! I know what you mean; it’s almost criminal, haha! Yet the Lancôme mascaras see a lot of love – they’re still one of the top-selling products from the brand and in the beauty market. Incredible. ParisB of My Women Stuff once wrote a post about how mascaras have a use-by period of 6 months and more (you know the logos with the open container and the words ‘6m’, ’12m’ on them?). Interesting, eh?
