Grandiôse Extrême Mascara
Rated 1 out of 5 by candyc from Used to be my favorite mascara I discovered Grandiose Extreme when I bought it as part of a holiday gift package. I loved the curve of the wand as it made it very easy to apply. Lashes were long, thick and beautifully curled. Sadly, the last two tubes have been defective. There's a little plastic ring on the top that has come loose causing the mascara to thickly coat the brush and make it impossible to use. The first time the ring got stuck in the wand. Today I luckily noticed the ring was coming loose so was able to super glue it back on. Some other recent reviews seem to indicate that this is a recurring problem that should be recalled by Lancome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pm35 from Mortifying mascara! Beware! I have had the same problems as CANDYC and Yen Yen. This is my third time purchasing the mascara, each time there is a different problem. The first time it clumped up horribly, the second time the neck broke off and the mascara was all over the wand, you couldn’t even wipe it off; and now this is the third time! It is definitely not water resistant, water proof, or smudge proof! I went to a very important event, and I didn’t see until after the event was over when I went to the ladies room that all the mascara was under my eyes. Not just little flecks, but all of it! I was mortified! I’ve never had such terrible problems with expensive make up before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lisa P from Love the finished look of this product This is my second tube/product/bottle whatever you would call it of this mascara. If you are patient and rotate the brush at different angles while applying it you will love the results. It does not get clumpy if you continue with light strokes and doesn't dry immediately so you can correct the occasional mascara mishap of too much or lashes not going in the right direction. My only complaint about it is you MUST BE VERY CAREFUL pulling the brush in and out of the well, as you may pull out the part that strains the liquid from the container with the brush! I do think a few more bristles (rubbery tips) on the brush would solve many of the complaints I've read in this thread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by THaus from Natural-looking alternative to last extensions! After MANY years of trying various waterproof mascaras (affordable & not-so-affordable), this product is a long awaited blessing! READ the directions about how to apply and you, too, can rejuvenate your eyes, EVEN if over 40 :). Certainly an option for all ages, yet this lady who struggles w/ eye allergies, dry eye, etc. found a winner w/ this product that doesn't fleck or leave a lower, dark film later in the day. I confess I struggled to use the primer, which I rec'd a free sample of & have tried prior but even love the mascara solo. A swipe or two for a natural look or more dramatic work for luscious eyes and you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dreamgirlla from I'M A CONVERT! Okay so I'm a bit of a mascara snob. I don't mind paying a lot but I also expect a lot. I love YSL Faux Effacils and ChanelVolume de Effects. Even Guerlain Cils D'Enefer is fantastic. After reading numerous great reviews of Lancome's Grandiose I decided to givie it a try. WOW. GRANDIOSE OUT PERFORMED ALL of my favorites!! No fallout. Great separation! My lashes are long and full and actually look like I am wearing extensions! The shape of the wand does give you a lot of control. This product is a must try! It is my number one pick of all mascaras out there. Lashes remain soft and supple. The formula does not seem overly harsh on my lashes either.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Queen T from Clumpy Clumpy Clumpy I wanted to love it. Love the burgundy color - that's about it. a) goes on very clumpy - you will need an additional brush to remove the clumps after application b) good luck if you try to apply a 2nd coat. Tarantula legs c) if you are traveling or storing the tube on it's side - when you go to use it - I swear half the product comes out. A MESS. You will need to leave the tube upright for a few days in order for the product to resettle. I am sure it is due to the shape of the tube. d) if Lancome can make defincils in burgundy - they have a customer for life e) much too expensive for what it is

Rated 1 out of 5 by Yen Yen from Used to love it, but .... I have been using Grandiose Extreme for more than 6 months. Used to love it so much for the effect it gave. But for my 3rd purchase of this mascara, it seems differently made. It's slipping off from the tube easily and the mascara is actually sticking all over the wand and wasted the mascara. The brush is also caked with the excess mascara and causing it hard to put on the lashes as the chunkiness clumped the lashes. Very disappointed with my 3rd purchase of Grandiose Extreme. Hope Lancome will review their configuration or quality of the mascara to maintain quality consistency,.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drizza from One wand to rule them all! I never write reviews, but ... this really is the best! I have used Lancome mascara for over 40 years. I have tried others, once, and always returned. My previous favorite was Hypnose Drama. The Grandiose wand looked fairly intimidating but the reviews were so good, I thought I would give it a try. So, the results were pretty spectacular. The wand is amazingly easy to use and allows you to get 100% coverage in hard to reach areas. I have pretty decent natural eyelashes but with Grandiose they look magical. No clumping, eyelashes clearly defined and great length. No smudging or flaking. If I was forced to complain about something, I would say Grandiose is a little harder to remove than Hypnose Drama or Defincils. Otherwise, this is Lancome's best yet.
