I love Chanel. I recently decided to branch out and try their Le Volumemascara. I stayed away from it in the past because I hate the newer silicone style brushes. The silicone brushes never give me the volume and definition I want. I love an old fashioned plastic mascara brush. Per Chanel:
This innovative, high-precision mascara achieves instant volume and intense colour in a single stroke for longer, thicker-looking lashes.
Natural waxes deliver instant volume while rapid-drying acacia gum sets and intensifies the curl. Film-forming agents preserve suppleness and help build volume evenly. A Chanel-exclusive ‘Snowflakes’ brush combines long and short bristles for an extreme, eye-opening effect.
HOW TO APPLY
Coat lashes from roots to tips with LE VOLUME DE CHANEL. Prep with BEAUTÉ DES CILS Nourishing Mascara Base for best results.
The formula doesn’t flake or irritate my contacts. No clumps or spidery lashes. It does have a decent pigment and black color, not the blackest black, but natural black. It gives decent volume with a silicone brush. I didn’t need more than two coats to achieve wearable, natural, yet voluminous results. I’m not into the false lash look so I don’t look for that in a mascara. I look for a natural voluminous look. The retail is $32. I’m amazed and I loved it. I will absolutely be repurchasing one day. It goes up there with my Armani Eyes to Kill Original which is my number one favorite.
