Review of Chanel Mascara Exceptionnel by zernelle
I'm not a fan of mascara for the most part because I haven't found one that absolutely does not clump, smudge, or flake. I would never spend this much money on a mascara, but I received a tube of this for free, so I gave it a try. I found the combination brush to be more complicated than I prefer but slightly less complicated to use than I expected. Unfortunately, the formula of this mascara is worse than some drugstore mascaras. It clumped, smudged, and flaked, and it did not have a single redeeming quality other than a very nice rich black color. I would not purchase this mascara.
