Review: Definicils Precious Cells Mascara by Lancome


I wanted to share how great my lashes look after a dose of Lancôme’s Définicils Precious Cells Mascara.  I first encountered the mascara when I received a sample at a blogger event last year.  Since then I have repurchased it, becoming one of my go to mascaras for those occasions where I want some extra drama.  It makes my lashes stand out against a smoky eye without the need for false lashes.  If you think I am slow at applying my mascara you do not even want to know how long it takes me to apply a pair of falsies (hence why I always cut that step out of my tutorials).  I love anything that will get me to skip that step.

Check out some of Lancome’s highlights: 


At the heart of Définicils Precious CellsMascara are extracts derived from Malus Domestica, a precious plant extract with excellent storage properties resilient enough to withstand tough environments. (Its long-living stem cells are responsible for this durability.)  If this ingredient sounds familiar, it’s because it stars in Lancôme’s Absolue Precious Cells skincare collection.

The breakthrough discoveries on epidermal stem cells paved the path to Définicils Precious Cells Mascara. In fact, Lancôme’s Advanced Research Laboratories confirmed a link between lash structure and the epidermal stem cells that live at the heart of lash follicles—just as with the skin.

Définicils Precious Cells High Definition Amplifying Mascara contains the following ingredients:

  • Swiss apple extract: The plant extract of Malus Domestica, already in Absolue Precious Cells, was shown to restore the environment of the epidermal stem cells in vitro. This extract contains cellular components such as peptides, lipids and sugars that can be assimilated by skin cells.
  • Madecassoside­: Derived from centella asiatica, a healing plant from Madagascar that helps strengthen and thicken lashes, Madecassoside is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine because of its healing properties.
  • Arginine: A nourishing amino acid with conditioning properties.


Définicils Precious Cells Mascara boasts an entirely new creamy texture.  Just as with the original best-selling Définicils, this formula not only defines lashes beautifully, but also creates a fuller lash look. A blend of five, triple-coated waxes delivers lash fullness from the lash root to tip. Additionally, the new Définicils Precious CellsMascara formula glides on smoothly while enveloping lashes with conditioning agents. It’s super-easy to remove, reducing the chance of lash loss.


It wouldn’t be a Lancôme mascara without an innovative, performance-driven brush and Définicils Precious Cells Mascara is no exception. The new multi-faceted brush was specifically developed to work with this creamier formula. The short bristles help deposit the formula in between the lashes, while the flexible, longer bristles allow for a clean application. In combination, the formula and brush deliver optimal lash by lash fullness.


From the first swipe, lashes coated with Définicils Precious Cells Mascara appear longer, thicker and simply more captivating. After four weeks, a panel of 101 women raved about the new mascara. Additionally, even after makeup removal, more than half of the women perceived their lashes to be in better condition and reported a reduced loss of lashes during makeup removal.
