One of the best mascaras I have ever used. I used Clinique High Impact before I got this mascara as a sample with New Zealand Fashion Quarterly and now I've gone back to Clinique, it's completely not good enough! Chanel Inimitable has me under its spell - I've just ordered the full-size version and can't wait for it to arrive. Some people are mentioning flakiness and clumping - to be honest, I didn't find that, but everyone's lashes are different - I have heard so many people rave about Maybelline Great Lash but that did absolutely nothing for me! I have fairly average top lashes, and longish bottom lashes. Inimitable seperated & defined my lashes, made them lusciously long and ebony black. It also doesn't clump bottom lashes, which is important, because heavy clumpy bottom lashes make you look tired even if you've had the best night's sleep! For me, this mascara is right up there with Dior Show, my other great mascara love.
