Very easy to use mascara. Really loved the normal version but as I cycle and exercise a lot I bought the waterproof version. While I absolutely love the normal one I'm a bit disappointed with the wp one, it just doesn't hold up, I have dark smudges at the end of the day. With or without foundation, it doesn't matter, I end up with dark smudges all over my under eyes.
I cycle outdoors every day in rainy old England and have tried so many mascaras. This mascara is brilliant and the only one I buy. My lashes have a tendency not to curl up, but using a eyelash curler this mascara stays put and doesn't run even in pouring rain. It never goes clumps either. Worth every penny
This mascara gives amazing false-lash effect and stays on pretty much all day! Dies not clump, smudge or run. Gives doll-like lashes because of the fibres, which tend to flake off and fall into my eyes- very, very unpleasant experience!!
Overall, beautiful effect, but not worth the suffering for everyday use, maybe for a special occasion but definitely too expensive to splurge on it again
I guess everyone's lashes are different? For my limp, thin, medium length lashes, this has been the best mascara for the last 2 years or so! It's never too watery from the first time opened, doesn't clump unless layered too many times, soooo black, thickens and lengthens beautifully! I always have spares of this mascara in my stash coz chanel cosmetic is not available in my country, so i'm always terrified of running out. I always purchase the waterproof one, but tried samples of the regular one and it's just as good! Unfortunately the price is as dramatic as the results and i hate how the gold in the packaging flakes so easily (especially if you travel a lot with it)? Right now I'm down to only one spare and I'm planning to order one online first ($42 through a reseller) before opening my last pack.. That's how much I love it!!
At first glance people may think "Oh, Chanel designer brand and over priced s**t..." but no. Seriously, this is worth your money. If I had to choose one mascara and one only for the rest of my life this would be it. It does everything it says it does volume, length, curl and separation plus it's water proof! (So of course water proof makeup remover needed) I use 10 Noir and the brush is fantabulous (fantastic + fabulous); no clumping on brush or when applied and it lasts all day long! Depending on the look you're going on, whether natural or glamorous it will look barely there. By far one of the best mascaras out there.
NOTE: It is NOT sweat proof...not recommended for humid climates but formulas may vary depending on country.
i generally love my chanel products since i always think its more worth while and this mascara can be one of them. this mascara does wonders with lengthening but not much of anything else. a couple of swipes and your eyes will look more awake. this product is my every day use and i love it and it doesnt budge like it says, stays on for hours with not a single smudge.
very clean, pretty fresh effect!
This mascara for me is my 2nd favourite of all time (behind Max Factor Masterpiece MAX) I received a sample in a magazine and ended up getting about 2 weeks out of it! I then bought it and really fell in love.
It separates the lashes, makes them SUPER long and SUPER black, doesn't clump and doesn't smell awful like most cheaper ones do. My only negative comment is that it does seem to dry out quickly. I can only get a month from it before it starts to dry out. And once that process starts, it then will begin to flake off my lashes during the day. I haven't tried the non waterproof version so perhaps it is better in that regard.
This mascara makes my already long eyelashes look very dramatic. It separates nicely and is glossy black. People always compliment my eyes when I wear this mascara. It's super waterproof and I need that because I have watery eyes and this doesn't budge. The only bad thing about this is that it dries up in 3 weeks so it seems like I'm always having to replace it at the Chanel counter, but all mascaras dry up fast, so this is perfect. I keep going back to this one.
I really hate this! I had a free gift card from The Bay purchases and decided to splurge on this after eyeing it for a long time. It's terrible! No volume or lengthening whatsoever and clumps. Maybe it works on different types of eyelashes? It did less for my lashes than all the cheap drugstore ones I tried. Disgraceful for the price!
