Le Volume De Chanel Mascara

I am a huge mascara lover and prior to picking up the Le Volume De Chanel Mascara I had been using Benefit's They're Real! for a good couple of years. I decided to try the Le Volume De Chanel Mascara because I just wanted a change and didn't think it could be possible to go wrong with Chanel (after all, it does cost a small fortune).

To be quite honest I am nothing but disappointed with this mascara. At first I had high hopes for this lash investment. To find out why you and your pretty little peepers should keep on reading!

On first application I was impressed, it provided amazing volume at the first swipe of application. The brush was easy to manoeuvre and didn't make a mess of my eyelids.

But! By the time you come to the second coat, it's a different story; hello clump city where the population of lashes appears to be less than before you applied mascara. Not only did I have problems with clumping and lack of volume, I found this mascara smudged and ran when my eyes watered. Basically the Le Volume De Chanel Mascara was a bad all-rounder for me and my mascara needs.

I hate reporting such a negative review, but I spent a lot of hard earned cash on this mascara, which then means I am expecting a lot of amazing results in return. Chanel, I am really disappointed in what I got. Obviously mascara opinions are very personal and people want different results. If you are looking for mega volume with separation and a smudge free finish; this mascara is not for you.

One thing however that I can say is that great about the Le Volume De Chanel Mascara is the packaging. It is simple and rather chic. The mascara tube itself is even metal, oh la la!

Le Volume De Chanel Mascara retails for roughly £26 from Debenhams, Selfridges, Harrods, and Boots stores.

In Australia you can find Chanel cosmetics at Myer and David Jones stores. You can expect to pay roughly $52 AUD on the Le Volume De Chanel Mascara.

Have you used the Le Volume De Chanel Mascara before? 
What was your experience?

    Looks like a great masacara!I actually use Yve Rocher,Vlume Vertige ad i like it!

  2. I love this mascara! It was actually on my top 3 in this blog post: http://mariamui.com/my-favorite-mascaras/ So sorry you were disappointed. I guess I use it mostly as an everyday mascara with one or two coats and it doesn't clump on me. But if I want full on volume with loads of layers Shieido Perfect Defining Volume is definitely my favorite! It will never clump and makes my lashes look incredibly long and voluminous. And thats by far the mascara I've gotten most compliments on!

  3. Let it dry out a bit then it's amazing! I hated it at first too now I won't be without it!

  4. I am not even sure if I still have it to be honest. I will have to go through my makeup and see. What do you do when you buy a new one? I couldn't stand waiting for it to dry out each time to use it. Xx
