Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base. Review and Photos

I’ve got the mini size of Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base with my Lancome purchase the other day. I am a huge fan of Lancome mascaras so, obviously, I was  curious about this base.

This is what Lancome says:

“The magic behind this mascara base is the conditioning formula—featuring micro-fibers and Vitamin E – to add extra length and thickness to your lashes for added visible performance to your mascara.”

For some reason I was not impressed at first and I was a bit shocked as Lancome eye products never ever disappointed me.   So I was determined to keep using it and… It does work!

It does give a better volume and length. I’ve asked mymen (boyfriend and brother) to tell the difference between the lashes with only mascara and mascara+base. Both said that they could definitely tell the difference.

The lashes with the base looked longer and thicker. As my boyfriend said – “more intense and more suitable for the night out”, while the lashes without  the base were more natural and suitable for the day time look. So there you go.

But, as I like dramatic lashes that make a statement, I love using this base for the day time!

I’ve read so many raves about this base and I personally really like the product. I think I would re-purchase Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base  in the full size in the future.

The price is £18.90/$22

And do you have a favourite mascara base? I have several that are still waiting for me to try them…

  1. I have used this and was faithful to it for a few years, as my lashes are straight and sparse and pretty short. However, after trying Diorshow’s one, can’t remember the name, I shall never go back, it is absolutely IMMENSE. It makes my lashes thick, longer and enable my mascara to hold a massive curl. It’s incredible!
