This isn’t a mascara, it’s a magic wand.
Yes it’s Chanel, we expect the best, but oh does this sexy little black number deliver! The packaging is of course sleek and sexy – the iconic interlocking “Cs” have that effect, but it’s not a case of style over substance....
Formula: A blend of inky pigments and natural waxes fasten on to lashes making them look twice as thick, protecting and holding them in a curled position, almost like hair tongs. The quick-drying formula stays picture perfect all day without a hint of smudge.
Brush: It’s so sophisticated it’s been patented! The science behind it, I’m not entirely sure of, but something to do with snowflake-shaped discs that are stacked and positioned perfectly along the wand. The formula sits between the discs’ points so when the long, stiff bristles grab onto each lash, formula is deposited evenly along the shaft, while shorter bristles separate lashes for a clean finish.
Use: The solid wand is so easy to use – no fiddly, flexi heads to contend with. It’s substantial and gets the job done. It’s a one coater that’s for sure, no need to keep going back in with this one. It coats lashes generously, scooping them up the new lengths. The pictures below show one quick coat but if you want the false lash effect you'd definitely get it with a touch more build up.
Results: Instant volume and intense curves from the first stroke with longer, plumper, thicker, glossy lashes. Jet black, bold, yet elegant!
I think I’ve found my holy grail mascara. Sadly it doesn’t come cheap. Retailing for £24, (I picked mine up in duty free for £20) I’ll probably reserve it for nights out and times I need to shine... my secret weapon!
