It’s always lovely to get post, even more so when it’s make-up and especially when you don’t remember requesting a sample! So imagine my surprise when I got a package through the door containing the new mascara from Chanel!The little box included a tiny sample and a leaflet about the product. It claims to be a “bold, intense look” and “in a single sweep, Le Volume De Chanel Ultra-Black transforms your eyes into a deep, daring gaze.” It also says that “the mascara’s formula gives lashes volume and curl…”
Game on Chanel, let’s see what you’ve got! I mean my eyelashes are ridiculously long and curled anyway, but it’s always fun to see what mascara does to them! (Weird fact: I had no eyelashes when I was born, my eyes were naked!!)
- First Impressions: Wow! The mascara has certainly curled my eyelashes and added a lot of volume.
- Value for money: It currently retails for around £25! (Whilst I was browsing to find the RRP, I remembered I’d requested a sample from Boots – they currently only have the waterproof version on the site which you can find here!)
- Will I use it again?: I’m definitely going to keep using it until the tube is empty, will I spend £25 on it though? Probably not.
- Verdict: 4/5 – It would have been a perfect 5, but the price let it down in my opinion, there are a lot of great mascaras out there that are under £10!!
What’s your favourite mascara? Let me know in the comments below 🙂 x
*PR sample but views are my own.
Your lashes look great! I’ve never tried a Chanel mascara before, but I really want to now!
They do look quite good, don’t they? I might do a comparison post between all the ones I own! 😊 x
Nice mascara! 😊
I’ve just got this too. So happy to see your blog 😊 I was absolutely ecstatic when I got this. It looks great too. I’ve got so many blogs to do so I have not tried mine yet but it looks fantastic. Great blog 😊 X
Awww well I hope you get to try it out soon, can’t wait to hear what you think 😊 x
Yeah I will be trying this within the next few days so my blog about it will probably be up by the end of this week. 😊 X
Wow, it looks fab on you – but I totally agree, there’s not need to pay such a hefty price tag when some of the drug store mascaras are equally as good! Great review 🙂 Karen xo
Thank you 🙂 I recently bought the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara and I can’t wait to use that (I’m trying to be good and use up one before using another … Trying being the operative word!) x
lol lol I know exactly what you mean!! Trying is always *trying* to be part of my vocab but rarely happens – I have such little self discipline when it comes to buying makeup!!! Talking of mascara’s the MaxFactor False Lash Effect is phenomenal – realllly good mascara if you ever need to add another to your wish list lol xxxxx
Yes, trying is always actually *trying* 😁 and no, I don’t need another mascara, but I can want one and that’s the same thing!! I might have to check it out xxxx
lol – well, if you ever want one that’s the one to want huni 😉 hehe XXX
