Chanel Cosmetics… I want to love every product they come up with, simply because of the whole alluring,elegant aura Chanel undeniably possesses. However, finding a cosmetic brand with a flawless make-up line has been a never-ending quest…at least,for me. The following Chanel mascaras mainly share the same name but they couldn’t be any more different in performance.
If I were to make a mascara my HG, then this would be it. The rubber brush coats every single lash perfectly and thickens them all without clumping or drying or flaking. It lengthens lashes beautifully and the black is intense enough to make your eyes pop. This is one outstanding mascara that, for me, is worth its cost. Surely, you could easily find a L’Oreal mascara that will do the same job for a lot less money but nonetheless, this is a top-notch mascara that one could easily commit to. I found that the non-waterproof version clumped slighltly but nothing that couldn’t be corrected right away.
This one is far from what I need in a mascara. It clumps and doesn’t seperate the lashes nearly as well as it should. Too much product gets deposited on the lashes from the start and ending up with spider-lashes is not what I aim for. Isn’t ‘Sophistiqué’ the goal? The application requires way too much effort if ‘ beautifully coated lashes with a touch of volume and length’ is what you want. I didn’t even bother using this mascara more than a few times – I left it to dry. The silver lining? The tube looks good.
How about you? Any beauty brands you’ve had a hit and miss with ?
