Chanel “Le Volume de Chanel” Mascara

I received a couple of samples of this new-ish product and set them aside until a few days ago, when I wanted to wear a black mascara for evening. I’ve tried volumizing mascaras before and found them either ineffective or clumpy or flaky. This one is none of those things. It goes on smoothly, and really does make lashes look much thicker and fuller. But it’s not too OTT dramatic either, hits just the right balance. It doesn’t smear or flake during the day, and comes off easily with Bioderma or makeup remover.

If you prefer a brown or even blue mascara, I’ve been told both of those colors will be available in the US come Spring.

Bon weekend!

    Ah, every piece of Chanel makeup looks so elegant. Thanks for the review, I’ll try this for a date night.

    Maybe it is time for me to stray away from old Maybelline, eh? 🙂 Chanel products are usually excellent. I just got a new nail polish I really enjoy, so why not this mascara? Will let you know if I like it… Thank you for the recommendation. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

    I love the smell of their cosmetics!! The packaging is so elegant, just using it makes one feel a bit more elegant.

    I love the elegance of the tubes they are so sleek and feel so smooth ….they are definitely the sexier choice!
    Performance is a bonus! I may sample one…I do love the Lancome line which I have been using for a very long time.

    Lol was mascara in the stars for today? (see my post!)

    Do you happen to know the price, Pseu? Like hostess I use Lancome but they came out with this curved brush I don’t handle well.

    I’ve been a Dior mascara woman for years, though become annoyed every time they “fix” a product that isn’t “broke” – in other words, either reformulate or more likely change the brush making it easier or harder to handle.

    I use both Dior and Chanel products and love them equally. I just may give this a try when the current mascara is out of juice, if the price is comparable…

    Et bon weekend !

    I recently bought Jane Iredale mascara and I love it. Maybe when it runs out I will try this one – I like the brush.

    Though I love Chanel cosmetics, I also love l’Oreal… Made in the same factories as Lancôme (both brands belong to the same group) and less expensive than high end names….
    Happy New Year 🙂 Wishing you the best for 2013 !
