Product Review: Chanel Le Volume De Chanel Mascara

One thing I think most girls will universally agree on is how mascara can dramatically change the look of your lashes. One coat and bam, your eyes look wider, brighter and instantly more defined. I'm normally a strictly "Drugstore" mascara kind of girl, though I do have two exceptions, the Clinique High Impact and the newest addition to my mascara wardrobe, Chanel Le Volume De Chanel. I first saw if on Claire's blog and her lashes looked so amazing, I had to ask for it for Christmas!

Chanel Le Volume De Chanel Mascara Product Review
This mascara does have quite a thick, wet formula so it's not going to be to everyone's taste. It's definitely volumising, your lashes look very thick and black, but it doesn't give much length and it can get a little clumpy, but to rectify that I just run through my lashes with my Real Techniques Brow Groomer, easy peasy lemon squeezy! I've read that priming your lashes beforehand helps with the clumping problem, so I will definitely be giving that a go. I think this mascara would be perfect for those who have very fair lashes, as the formula is very black.

 As always with Chanel, the packaging is sleek and just having a product branded with the famous CCs makes me feel so much swankier (Is that a word? I'm not sure haha) Overall I think this mascara is fab for special occasions when you really want va va-voom lashes, but not necessarily everyday wear, it's a bit too pricey for that, for me anyway.

What's your favourite high end mascara?

XOXO Claire

  1. I'm still searching for my HG mascara and can't say I ever purchase the same one twice in a row! I'm currently using the Smashbox Full Exposure and Clinique High Impact, which are both just okay.

    1. It definitely takes time, I would say the Clinique one is my favourite, especially for everyday wear. Though I wouldn't mind trying one from YSL :)
