I received this sample and original sized product in GenBeauty. I was super excited because I really love their products. I have been using this mascara for the past few weeks and here is my review.
Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara, $25.00 ( shop here )
The packaging is very chic and stylish. Lancôme never seems to slack off packaging. This mascara has its symbol on the top of the wand. It is in a black shiny color and the writing is in bright pink. The wand is your full straight fluffy wand.

Before and After
I love this mascara. I tried it on so many times and it has never failed to impress me. It does everything a mascara must do. It lifts and separates the lashes. It gives them a very dramatic coating of mascara. The thick wand delivers from left to right and does not miss a single lash. It claims so many things and I believe it delivers all of it. It will not flake or transfer throughout the day. It will literally not budge. I love to rub my eyes and this mascara even then did not smudge or flake. It also gives the lashes so much volume and fluffiness which I like. For its price it is a bit pricey but you will not be disappointed by it. I will purchase this with my own money once I am done with the sample and full sized product I currently have.
