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!!
