Lancôme’s “Monsieur Big” mascara comes in a sleek black tube. The regular mascara comes with an electric pink logo on it, and the waterproof option, with electric blue inscriptions on it. The size of the mascara is very convenient as it can fit easily into a purse or bag. The mascara also comes in a smaller travel size, so it can fit an evening wallet on chain or a clutch. The brush is delicately designed with rubber bristles that make it easy to apply.
The “Monsieur Big” mascara is available in “Monsieur Big is the New Black” and in “Monsieur Big Brown”. We tested the black non-waterproof mascara. We found it to be highly rich in color as it is deeply pigmented.
“Monsieur Big” adds volume to lashes and a thick deep black finish. The brush along with the creamy mascara liquid ensures smooth and smudge-proof application. The website claims that Mr. Big adds “12x more volume than bare lashes”, while this cannot be tested, the mascara does give the effect that you are wearing false lashes, however, the intensity of this feature depends on how many layers you apply.
For a simple every day look, one application is more than enough. However, for a more dramatic evening look, applying 2 or even 3 layers is recommended. The mascara gives an edgy look and works very well on its own for a day look, or with a smoky eye for the evening. The product also dries fast once on the lashes and does not clump up or smudge. Once applied, this mascara truly has a long tenure as it lasts all day long. It is also light and there is no feeling of heaviness on the lashes. What is a really distinct feature is that the mascara helps the eye look bigger as it elongates the lashes and enriches them with a deep black that helps eye colors pop up.
The mascara retails at $25 on the official Lancôme website and has a capacity of 0.33oz/10ml. This price is considered the average mascara price for this brand type. For example, the MAC “In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash” mascara is officially sold for $24 and the Estee Lauder “Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting” mascara retails at $27.50.
