I was given a sample of this mascara when I dought Vitaloumiere aqua from the Chanel store.

When I've first opened it and shaw the brush my first thought was "WOW this looks EXACTLY like YSLs baby doll mascara" (whitch btw I FREAKING LOVE). So it was no surprise that in fact it is exatly like the baby doll mascara in every possible way. .
I don't know who copied who but is litteraly like the same product.

I guess this one might be pricier than the baby doll because YSL has sales more often than Chanel (here in Greece at least) and you can find it for under 30€ during them.

So if you love this mascra and you wanna find a slightly cheaper dupe you should give baby doll a try.

This mascara is absolutely fantastic! I have tried from Maybelline, Illamasqua, Benefit, Mac, Dior, Clinique, Lancôme, and even the new Unique Mascara. However! this one tops the list! I have quite long eyelashes but the ends never quite lift and by the end they are not curled or the effect is not long lasting. This Mascara ensures that the:

> The formula does not have a strong smell
> Does not flake
> Washes of easily (which can be a pain with products like Benefit)
> Does not smudge
> Curl stays all day
>Lashes do not gather up or clump

The price too be honest is not much different from other high end brands, but it is worth it

Am always searching for HG mascara. Unfortunately this most certainly is not it! Pros: great wet inky black colour and the plastic spikes separate lashes really well so when you first apply it looks great. However, fast forward one hour ... it sheds. A LOT. Little black sooty spots everywhere. Have tried this three times (as in purchased on 3 x occasions + samples not same mascara used 3 x times) and every time it behaved exactly the same. I would never waste money on it again. Loreal or No.17 or Maybelline far better performing.

Words can not express how much I love this product! No other mascara I've used in the past compares to this! I get the most voluminous, long lashes ever. There's no clumping or flaking, it's just beautiful. I have repurchased this product many times. Yes it's a little on the expensive side but worth every single penny.

I love this mascara, its hand down one of the best ones i've ever used!
This & lancomes hypnose are my two all time favourites!
It is a little pricey at £25 and i definitely do agree with everyone saying it dries out after about a month which is disheartening as its so good, but very expensive for something that does dry out far too quickly!

But its just too damn good! I keep going back to it! You need the amallest amount of product for it to be effective! Its the best out of all of the other chanel mascaras, doesnt clump, really, seperates, volumizes, lengthens and darkens the lashes.
It Doesnt leave any black marks under your eyes or on your eyelids after a long day!

You would not regret trying this mascara its quite hard to put into words how good it actually is!

If you know you know;)

I love that I receive separation yet volume & drama @ the same time on my paticular lashes. This is however actually the 1st Chanel mascara Ive ever tried, so I cannot compare it to others but do like what it does for my lengthy yet puny lashes...Really plumps them up after only 2 coats. I also like that it's easy to remove with my Neutrogena make-up wipes. I ve only had it for a few days & do hope it lasts 3 full months tho...(as I ve read some of the previous reviews state theirs lasted a month...I guess time will tell...

This is my favourite mascara, I have used others from MaxFactor, MAC but keep coming back to this one. The applicator keeps my lashes nicely separated. If I want my lashes quite natural I only apply a layer or so, and for more dramatic looks I'll put on a bit more and sometimes even use Maybellines colossal volume over it. So for lots of volume you'll need to layer a bit, but it gives me perfectly separated lashes.

Best mascara ever! I love having the option of doing a natural or a more dramatic lash look. My favorite color is the purple. It's soft and brings out the gold flecks in my pupils. It's also really easy to remove at the end of the day.

Lovely mascara. The amazing thing about this is that it does not flake on me, at all. Most mascaras flake off by the end of the day. Not only does this not flake, but when I go to bed, my lashes look as good as they did after I first apply the mascara in the morning. It holds the curl all day.

It does smudge a little, but not enough to make me look like a raccoon. I'm disappointed by all of the reviews that say this dries out quickly. I hate to have to buy this every month but if I have to I will.

I like the original inimitable better. This is only a slightly thicker, darker formula and can be Camry if you don't use a brush on your eyelashes. I guess that "the look" in magazines/runway/high fashion at times; but for the everyday woman I prefer to use regular inimitable (non waterproof) in black.
