I have my reservations about these very expensive mascaras - are they really better than high street beauty brands? are they worth the money? am I paying for the brand? and I have to say this mascara did not fulfil my every wish (which frankly I would expect it to given the price).
The mascara comes in a dual tube - two brushes for the price of three cheaper mascaras. You almost feel like you are getting something for nothing, but not quite. You have a brush at each end - one for volume and length and the other for reaches those tricky lashes. The tube is gold coloured metal which feels and looks expensive. The brushed are both bristle brushes which again look and feel very good quality. The overall effect is of an expensive looking product, and it IS expensive so it better look it.
The mascara itself is lovely, thick and creamy in consistency. It has a sheen to it which looks lovely when applied to the lashes. It dried very quickly and looks lovely in the black colour I bought it in. It does not leave you with heavy clumpy lashes (if you avoid more than 2 coats) and definitely does widen the eye and lengthen the lashes. Your lashes are separated properly by the second brush and the first does give you volume and length. I didn't really find it particularly good at curling as it claims but then this is not something I really look for. It basically offers everything I could want in a mascara and leaves your lashes looking natural. So why only four stars then?
The mascara is great but I don't find it particularly versatile. With two brushes you would hope that you could achieve several different looks but I don't really find this the case. It is much more of a day mascara and I find that disappointing for such an expensive one. If I am paying this much I want a mascara that offers impact and this one just doesn't. I like it, but I think two or three high streets mascaras could achieve a better look when combined and would be a similar price. they would also last longer.
This mascara lasted me 2 months before it dried out and clogged the brushes. I like to mix my mascaras together - often using a couple on one application to achieve the desired look. I found with this mascara that the contact with cheaper brands compromised the mascara cream and dried it out more quickly and made it lumpy. It is probably my fault for using it with other mascaras but when this only achieves a daytime look you need to use another mascara to add more impact.
So at £23 for this mascara what are you really paying for? 40% great day mascara and 60% brand. I choose a product because of how well it works and not because of the name on the tube - so this mascara leaves me feeling robbed.
Another little present in my Christmas stocking was this Guerlain mascara. Having just written two reviews about other similar gifts that I got from Guerlain, I am not surprised that this mascara retails from £20. Personally given how much everything else from Guerlain costs, I don't actually think that this is a bad price.
The mascara itself comes in a gold tube that is very elegant and sleek. The difference between this mascara and all of the others is that it uses a two brush system. A little fidldy you may think (and you would be right), however, I actually think the results make this faffing on worth it. There is a normal mascara sized brush and a much smaller brush that allows you to get at the smaller eyelashes. This means that you actually acheive a much wider eyed look than just using the normal brush.
The mascara itself has a nice consistency, being quite smooth and not at all lumpy. I've found that I only need to use one application to get a good everyday look, which might actually make this a more cost effective purchase than a cheap mascara that needs several applications. My eyelashes don't look spidery or clumped up and although it takes a bit longer than usual to put this mascara on I have to say that I think it's worth it.
All in all a lovely gift and not really an expensive mascara to buy for yourself. I really do think that this is one Guerlain product that's worth buying for yourself!
I'm an absolute sucker for all lotions, potions, perfumes and make-up, and as such have a absolutely vast amount of all of the above. My husband thinks I'm a bit crazy, but hey he's not a girl!
I think that I've tried probably every premium mascara out there, some I love, some are ok, some are a waste of money. This one I love.
I bought this in black - noir. I always buy black mascara, as I have dark brown lashes. I have the shortest, stubbiest eyelashes in the world ever, so mascara is an essential item for me, especially one that will make my lashes loook longer and fuller. This one was £25.00 from John Lewis.
The mascara comes in a sleek, classy looking gold coloured tube, with a brush at either end of the tube. One of the lids has the Guerlain logo engraved on it.
This is an absolutely brilliant mascara for me and my short stubby lashes, I use the main brush for my top lashes, and I use the miniature brush for my bottom lashes and for the catching the inside corners of my top lashes. This mascara makes my lashes look long and thick and perfectly curved, with no clumps or caking, or stickyness. I've even had comments from friends asking which mascara I'm currently using as they know how short my lashes are, and my eternal perfect mascara quests.
This is a perfect all day mascara, it doesn't come off, no panda eyes! This is a really easy mascara to wash off too, I just use my normal cleanser and water and it washes off easily.
All in all I found this to be a really good quality mascara, yes it is expensive - but no more so than most premium brands, Dior, YSL: they are all over £20.00, but this is definately worth it. I will definately be buying this again.
Guerlain Le 2 de Guerlain Mascara comes in a lovely sleek looking gold bottle with the Guerlain signature on the top.
It is different in that it has two application brushes one screwed in to each end of the tube. There is a normal sized brush and a smaller brush at the other end I think the idea is that it makes it easier to apply the mascara to the bottom lashes.
In all fairness when I first used this product I did use the small brush for my lower lashes and found it useful but honestly I find when I'm rushing around to do the school run or getting ready for work I don't generally have the time to be messing around with the two brushes so I just use the bigger brush and that does the job just fine.
This mascara is the best I have used and does separate and individually coat every lash with mascara without clumping and sticking together my eye lashes.
I have been very impressed with this mascara and the black colour does make my eye lashes stand out although in my opinion probably not enough for a more dramatic or an evening look. So if the price tag of £20-25 doesn't put you off I would say this is a very good day time option.
I bought this Guerlain mascara as I had bought Guerlain lip gloss and was very happy with it so I decided to try out other products from this brand.
The unique aspect of this mascara is the two brushes. The first is designed to lengthen, curl and separate your lashes and the second mini brush is designed for smaller lashes which are more difficult to reach. It's great for adding volume; the small brush is particularly useful for your lower lashes.
The mascara is great as it goes on easy and it doesn't clump or feel heavy on my lashes. It really gives a unique look as the two brushes allow you to get a great even coat on your lashes. It also means that you can layer your look to tailor it for day or night.
It's long lasting and it doesn't smudge or flake off during the day. It doesn't feel sticky and when you blink you don't feel like your lashes are sticking together.
The only downside is that it can be a bit difficult to remove, but it wouldn't put me off using it.
The mascara is quite expensive but I think that it's definitely worth it as it feels natural and light and looks great.
I am a sucker when it comes to mascara and spend a fortune on the latest maybelline , or max factor mascaras after seeing them advertised on tv however I am always left disappointed with them because they never do as promise.
My lashes are an ok length and brown in colour but they only stand out if i use mascara. My friend recommended the Guerlain le 2 de guerlain mascara describing it as a miracle mascara, I was pretty excited to buy it.
I paid £18.00 from house of frasers. This is a crazy price for a mascara but it really is fantastic.
It comes in a gold twisted mascara tube that has two brushes one one each end. The end brushes are also the lids to the tube and are triangle shaped. The gold colour is striking and looks very posh, it has the Guerlain signature on it. You get 2.4g of mascara in the tube.
Two colour to choose from brown or black, I took the black as I really want my eyes to stand out and not blend in.
The mascara is waterproof.
Applying the mascara is easy to apply. You have the bigger brush this perfect for the top eye lashes, the wand is a good length and the brush is firm, when stroking the lashes with it , I found it gets into the roots and pulls each individual eye lash as it coats them in an even coating of black mascara.
The small brush is perfect for the lower lashes and getting right to the inner edges of the eye lashes , for the shorter length ones.
I find the mascara goes on perfectly, no clumps, not dry and not cakey. This is clearly a good quality product.
This really does what is says. It comes out the tube with ease and does not make a mess around the opening.
My eye lashes curl, lengthen, and each individual lash gets mascara on it. This is not one of those false promise mascara splashed on tv but more of a secret miracle mascara. I have since recommended this to other friends and family and they agree its definitely worth paying more for the Guerlain Le 2 de Guerlain Mascara because it gives perfect results.
I have had the mascara coming on six months now and starting to run out so will be buying more.
I highly recommend Guerlain Le 2 de Guerlain Mascara.
Whilst I do really like this mascara, I must say I find it a bit...gimmicky.
I must have tried pretty much every mascara out there, and find that I often go through phases of 'favourites' (And of course, every mascara is nothing without a coat of Lancome's Cils Booster underneath!), and at one time this was a favourite.
It's best selling point I think is the fact that it certainly does not go on clumpy at all, the curse of many mascaras which would otherwise be wonderful! Your lashes are very finely separated and lengthened (for curling..use a curler, preferably a heated one. I do not believe many mascaras actually fulfill their supposed claims of curling at all!) and all in all it leads to a very natural look.
It is therefore more of a daytime mascara in my opinion, rather than one you'd wear on a big night on the town or when you really want to make an impact. That is of course not at all a bad thing, given most of the time we wear mascara it is during the day!
Now let's move on to it's supposed USP: the two brushes. Whilst this is of course useful, it is not at all necessary when you know how to apply mascara correctly and do not have hands and fingers the size of a fairytale giant. My main gripe with this product is that whilst it is good, I wonder if I am paying around £23 for the 'gimmick' of the two brushes (especially when most other high end mascaras retail at around £18 or £19), or if I am paying more for the high quality I have come to expect from Guerlain.
It is still a wonderful product (after this review I am considering buying it again!) and shiny gold elegant wand naturally looks beautiful on your make up shelf or in your make up bag, I just don't like the idea that I might be being duped by some marketing team into buying this purely for the two brushes.
We all like to get two things for the price of one and you certainly get that will this mascara. I personally don't believe that one mascara alone can separate, lengthen, curl and add volume to the lashes and so over the years I have found myself using three different mascaras together to achieve the desired look. So when I heard of Le 2 de Guerlain mascara, I was dying to give it a try.
This mascara is a double ended product with a wand at each end to serve a different purpose. The main brush is the bigger one which is packed full of plastic type bristles and its purpose is to add volume and to curl the lashes which opens up the eyes.
The second brush is smaller with fewer plastic type bristles which are set in a spiral shape and its job is to separate and cover every single lash and boost the length of your lashes to the point where you leave your false lashes at home.
Its smaller size means that you can easily get to the hard to reach lashes at the inner and outer corners of your eyes. This brush is also tilted slightly which means you will make less mistakes when applying your mascara.
Unusually, this product comes fragranced which is not really the first thing I look for in a mascara and is not entirely necessary. I think Guerlain is trying to add a touch of class to the product in doing so and the aroma is a floral vanilla one and I love all things vanilla. It is barely there and according to Guerlain, it is perfectly safe to use on the eyes. It certainly hasn't irritated mine, even when I wear my contact lenses.
The product doesn't cause my lashes to clump together making it look like I have far fewer lashes than I actually do. Apparently this is because the ingredient which causes mascaras to clump the lashes together has been removed from this product and replaced by a similar ingredient, but one which leaves the lashes clump free.
This mascara is incredibly easy to use and it certainly makes my life easier. It covers every single lash, no matter how small. I can use it each time without bumping into the skin around my eye and ruining my eye shadow and other make up that I have already done.
The mascara is very liquid like and this is why it covers each lash completely and evenly. It doesn't flake away which is fantastic for me because I am often reluctant to apply mascara to my lower lashes as you can end up looking tired when the mascaras smudge and flake onto your skin.
This mascara lengthens your lashes fantastically and makes them much thicker. When I've worn this mascara on a few nights out, a couple of my friends have thought that I'm actually wearing false lashes.
As for curling my lashes, I wouldn't say that this mascara makes them incredibly curled because the mascara is too heavy. But as long as you curl your lashes with an eye lash curler first then you'll still achieve beautiful lashes. This mascara has also cut down the time on my lengthy make up routine which is something that is always welcomed by me.
The product comes in a gorgeous twisted metallic tube with a lid at each end which you twist in order to open and close. You can tell the product is high quality just by looking at the packaging and Guerlain is inscribed on the lid.
The actual mascara is one of the longest that I have ever seen so it may not fit in your make up bag. I suppose this is because there are two wands that need to be included within the packaging instead of just one. I have this product in black, however this product also comes in brown and violet. It is also available in a waterproof version.
The product costs around £25 which is not cheap but is on par with YSL which is another of my favourite mascaras. If you shop around online then you will probably find it for cheaper.
All in all, this mascara looks beautiful and definitely makes the lashes look full, long and healthy. If you're buying it for the curl aspect you'll be disappointed however I think it lives up to all of its other promises.
Anyone who is aware of the Guerlain brand of cosmetice will know that their products are not cheap and this mascara is no different as it will set you back between £20 and £25. I use the black colour (there are only four colour options that I have come across) and that is the only one in the range that I have experience of.
The mascara comes with a rather unique two brush application system. The product itself is in a stylish gold tube that is rather attractive looking, very slim and elegant. At either end there is a brush, these are different sizes with the smaller of the two allowing you to access those lashes that are hard to get to and where more precision is needed, the bristles are made from different materials as well, at first I wondered whether this was just some gimic but I do find the smaller brush particularly good at applying mascara to my lower eye lashes.
I do find this to be an excellent mascara, a little more fiddly to apply with the two brush approach perhaps but it is a very good mascara that applies easily to the lashes, and one application is always enough. The mascara has a very good consistency, it is not too thick and glupy, instead it is smooth and you can certainly notice the difference after it has been applied as my lashes are thicker and longer looking. The end result is quite a natural look to my eye lashes and they have a nice upwards curl to them.
When I first used this product I was surprised at how light it felt on my eye lashes, given the results I expected them to have a heavier feel to them but that was not the case. They still feel quite relaxed and supple, probably because the mascara does not leave them clumped together at all. It is also a long lasting amscara and I have sufferred no embarrasing runs or smudges when wearing this both in the day and also for an evening out. It is also fairly easy to remove at the end of the day with a cleanser.
The big question has to be whether this product justifies the high price tag, well in my opinion it does however that does not mean I'm totally loyal to this product as it is pricey and to be honest like an expensive perfume I do tend to save it for special occasions these days.
I have a number of Guerlain products, among them the Guerlain Le 2 Mascara. I am a fan of Guerlain products in general because I tend to find them to be very high quality and long-lasting....although unfortunately, the price task also is at the higher end of the market! The last Guerlain Le 2 Mascara I bought cost me £25 from Cavendish House (which is a House of Fraser store) which, although pricey, is something that I'm willing to splash out on.
There are a wide range of colours to choose from but I chose the number 10 noir 2 noir. It is possible to get this mascara in two tones - which gives it a unique feature....although I prefer to stick to the one tone. Noir 2 noir is basically a plain deep shade of black ......which is traditionally my colour of choice. It comes incased in in a gold tube which is etched with the Guerlain design at one end. The tube has a weighty feel to it and it looks like a high quality product.
At either end of the tube is an applicator brush. One of these brushes is thick, straight and longer, while the other applicator brush is thinner, shorter and slightly curved. The idea is that the thicker brush is the main brush, while the thinner brush is more suited to the inner and outer eye corners.
I do like using this mascara because I find that the larger brush coats my lashes really well. Although many mascaras claim to separate lashes, I find that this one truly does - which leaves my eyes looking sophisticated and neat. I don't particularly find that this mascaras lengthens my lashes, which isn't a issue for me as my lashes are long enough - but it does make my lashes look thick. I don't tend to use the shorter mascara stick for the corners of my eyes so much, but I do use it for touching up my mascara between full applications.
The mascara is waterproof - and I only rarely end up with panda eyes. In addition to this, the mascara generally lasts for the whole day, although I will touch it up now and again throughout the day whether it needs it or not! I find it very easy to remove with make-up wipes.
Overall, I would recommend this mascara to anyone who can afford the high price tag.
Sorry my fellow dooyoo buddys heres another Guerlain review for you, Im sorting through my make up collection and writing many reviews in the next few days.
Guerlain is the best make up brand i own and buy it for its fantastic quality and am never left disappointed with any their products.
I bought this Guerlain Le 2 Maskara from The House of Fraser for £24.00, i had a few vouchers left over from my birthday and was running low on maskara hence my purchase.
The maskara bottle is like a piece of art work, Its gold in colour and has a mirror reflective finish to it. The maskara has two brushes and screw off at either end of the bottle. The guerlain name is present on the tube.
I bought mine in black but it is also available in brown. The maskara is easy to apply and thats where i will explain the two brushes, One brush is like a normal maskara lenght brush which with this product is used for your top eye lashes and the other brush is much smaller in lenght and slightly angled, this brush is used for the lower lashes and doing the corners of the top lashes. I find this a fantastic idea and it really works.
I found with my old cheap maskara that i couldnt get to the corners of my lashes without it smudging and leaving black marks on my corner of the eyes.
When applying the maskara liquid is smooth and not to thick and glides on easy without leaving clumps unlike my old maskara. It really lenthings my lashes and curls them up and they look fantastic and flirty. One coat feels and looks natural and if you want to apply two for a evening look the second coat gides on smooth over the top of the first.
I love this maskara so much, i love how dark the black colour is, it does not make my lashes stick together or or clump. It feels light on my lashes. Its also easy to remove aswell, my lashes stay lenghtend all day long.
I give it 5 dooyou stars x
After having read a number of very good make up reviews on Dooyoo I paid a visit armed with my not so small wish list, to a well known retail store to see what I could find at a decent price. I came across a number of well reduced items including the Guerlain Le 2 Mascara that I am reviewing here.
The Guerlain Le 2 Mascara that I picked out, was a blue toned shade that I must admit I picked because it was half the price of the other colours. Now I know thats not the best way to purchase your makeup, but as I already have zillions of black and brown toned mascaras, I thought the blue would be a nice change.
As the normal price for these rare beauties seems to be a whooping £24 (sucks in breath and says ouch!) my blue one at £12 seemed like a fantastic bargain. At that price its not too far away from many mid range high street brands, so was more than worth a try. It also looks very posh in its slinky looking long gold toned tube which is very lush and touchy feely.
As for the applicators, what you get here are not 1 but 2 applicator brushes. Hmm, well the general idea is that the bigger one can give extra length to your lashes. I found that this claimed lengthening of my lashes is not really something I have noticed at all. But my lashes do look well separated and full, which I like and I don't need too much of the product to define my eyes.
As for the other brush I have found that was a bit odd to get used to at first as its at a slight angle and its a bit well how do I put it, well.... stumpy seems to suit it. However I have to say that the stumpy angled brush is clever little thing that you can use to get into and around your smaller lashes and coat them with a fine amount of mascara which is a definite plus point.
The colour of my Guerlain Le 2 Mascara being a blue or bleu shade is not an in your face full on electric blue. Its a more refined classy navy toned blue that is rather nice to wear, as it just gives a hint of being a stand out colour rather than screaming look at me. I think the navy tone is very flattering and feel it looks very nice on my lashes so I am pleased with it.
As the range of Guerlain Le 2 Mascara is normally far too expensive for me to consider without coughing and spluttering I am wondering if its best to hunt down another in the same shade, before the price goes back up. After all £24 for a mascara is way more than I would usually pay, but £12 is not too bad at all.
As I rather like my bargain Guerlain Le 2 Mascara I have to say I would recommend it, but only at a reduced price. Although it looks very nice and does a good job of defining my eyes, at full price its just too pricey for me. With that in mind I want to give my Guerlain Le 2 Mascara a 4 star rating, but only if you can find it with a discount as I really don't think its worth its full retail price.
My Mum is a bit of a make up fiend but she likes the expensive stuff. She purchased the Guerlain Le 2 de Guerlain Mascara but she didn't get on with it much so asked me if I wanted it. Mmm, expensive make up? Yes please, Mummy!
She handed me this gorgeous tube of mascara when she popped around and I was in love just by looking at the packaging. In a reflective gold tube, with Guerlain on the end in their trademark font this looked expensive stuff and I was a little excited at it joining my bronzer in my make up bag!
Now, alot of people will think you are just paying for the name with this product and although this is true, you are also paying for a fantastic product. This mascara is different to any I have seen on the high street. For a start it has two ends - one with a bigger, thicker brush which is for the eyelashes on your upper lids and then a smaller, slimmer brush for your bottom lashes. I absolutely loved this idea. It is so painstakingly difficult with a standard size brush to apply mascara on the bottom lashes without smudging it on to your eye lid. You have no problems with this mascara. I find it easy to apply and never get it anywhere other than my lashes.
The brushes are very easy to control and fit into your hand easily.
The other thing which makes this mascara amazing is that when you apply it you can really see each eyelash and the way it has been lengthened and thickened. It didn't make my eyelashes flick upwards anymore than my usual mascara does but it did make them look longer and thicker. The mascara didn't create a fake effect and it didn't clump together to create that spider look to your eyes. The mascara offers a very natural look to your eyelashes.
Overall I was very pleased with the mascara and couldn't grumble about anything as it didn't cost me anything. I think it is a great product and would recommend it though the only thing is I know this is an expensive product and I am left wondering if it really did do much more than my usual mascara. Don't get me wrong, I loved the two different sized brushes and the feeling of having such an expensive mascara but I do think that after some trial and error with cheaper mascaras you could find something that does a similar job.
I do recommend it though, even if it is for just the once.
I am unsure of the actual cost of it.
Having already been sold to the Guerlain range with Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder, I realised I was running low on eyeliner and mascara. I had originally planned to buy my usual brand but on second thoughts opted for the Guerlain brand.
I looked into the various products they offered and user reviews before finally purchasing a Le 2 de Guerlain Mascara two-brush mascara for £22.00 from an online store. I'm often very picky when it comes to mascaras as I hate having to talk to someone that has serious and (in all honesty - repulsive) 'caked-spider' thing going on. You may think I'm exaggerating but to me I'd guess it would be like the feeling you'd get when talking to a bearded man, and having your attention suddenly drawn to the delicious looking assortment of crumbs lingering within it - your mind wanders - shudders. So anyway same thing.
On first impressions I was quite keen on the simplistic yet elegant design of the mascara. At present most mascaras available on the market from brands like Maybelline and rimmel etc. over-complicate their designs making them look 'tacky' and cheap - this however is certainly not the case with this item. Design definitely has not been compromised with its stylish gold finish and engraved 'Guerlain' which is positioned subtly at both ends., the mascara has an unusual, twisted, asymmetric design, inspired by recent architectural trends of the magnificent tall buildings that are appearing in the world's most beautiful cities Danish designer Helle Damkjaer has created a piece of art.
As for its performance - it does not disappoint here either. Consisting of two brushes - the first transforms the eyelashes with a single stroke, volumizes, lengthens, curves and separates. The second miniature brush is designed for the inner and outer corners eyelashes tilted 7 degrees, to coat smaller eyelashes with precision and ease. The texture is significantly different than any others I have tried. Apparently most mascara's include a lot of waxes which are often the cause of clumping. However this mascara has a formula specifically designed to combat this issue, which has replaced these waxes with polymers.
Not even the product's scent has been over-looked containing a subtle, delicate fragrance with notes of vanilla, and oriental florals, which also happens to be eye-friendly - thankfully.
I can't find any criticisms to mention other than its price, for which you are paying for quality. It is by far the best mascara I have ever used, in terms of design, quality and results. Thanks to the revolutionary Guerlain Le 2 de Mascara, now we can have it all: volume + length + curve + definition, without having to buy separate mascaras.
My sister had bought this product after a friend of hers bought it and swore that it gave her the most amazing cat eye shape ever. We were getting ready to go out one night so she handed it to me, having already sold me on how amazing a product it was - the sleek, elegant shape of the tube and the couture label had all but convinced me of its awesomeness before I even tried it on. So I unscrewed the top and excitedly applied the mascara, using both ends as my sister had advised me - the bigger brush for your main lashes, and the smaller brush for my outer lashes.
And the mascara certainly did NOT miss a single lash - every lash stood out in stark contrast to the other, but it didn't produce a look that I really appreciated. The lashes were defined, but they weren't any thicker or curlier - if anything, my eyes looked all the more bare for having each lash's true nature accentuated as such. Using the smaller brush at the outer corner of my eyes was a great novelty but I'm unconvinced it made any sort of difference. I ended up rooting through my bags for my trusty Diorshow and slicked that on over it, happier with the thicker lashes that mascara gave me.
So I know many people who are great aficionados of Le 2 de Guerlain mascara, but I'm not a big fan - I think you need lashes that are already very thick and only need definition to really get the most out of this product. If you're unlucky in the lashes department, then go somewhere else!
A duo-ended two brush mascara that boosts volume, length, and curl without missing a lash!
