I actually didn't mind it much on Hypnose Star though. The shape isn't as integral to the overall mascara performance as LOL's was so it wasn't too big a deal.
I really liked how black this mascara was on my lashes. Apparently it has some "black diamond" effect that gives your lashes a darker, glossier finish. I didn't particularly notice much of the gloss but the darkness is definitely prominent.
Hypnose Star succeeded in the volume department too, I found. It looked like I had a ton of lashes. It made them all thick, but didn't clump or anything. I also got a fair amount of lengthening and lift.
Would I be interested in purchasing a full size, based on the sample? Sure!
For some reason (probably the shape of the wand), I didn't think I would love this too much, but I definitely think its a mascara you should consider trying. I'm not sure if I would say it reaches it's "show stopping" status yet, but it's damn close.
You can find more information on this mascara at the Sephora website. It retails at $28.
I'm also wondering how this compares with Hypnose Doll Lashes, being that they seem to have similar wands? Anyone try both yet?
