Rated 3.0 out of 5 stars
I was pleasantly surprised, and I love it! I have had other Chanel mascaras that I have loved, and this one was no different. I love the packaging, and the wand for this mascara is great. My lashes are fairly long, and the applicator was easy to use and didn't apply clumpy or too wet (like my Dior one) I plan to buy another one for my makeup kit 🥰
This mascara's price rivals Chantecaille and Sisley without delivering the quality or performance. You know when you open a fresh mascara and before you finish the first layer on the first eye you're already saying out loud, 'Oh, this is no good.' This is one of those mascaras.
It was patchy and clumpy, it wasn't even that dry on the wand. Then, the moment I sprayed my face with setting spray, it was all over my face. Before you say decide it was user error, I almost ALWAYS set after mascara because I don't want the setting spray to uncurl my lashes and don't want to curl them after applying setting spray so the curler won't stick to the lashes and give me crimps instead of curl, and I have NEVER had a mascara smear on my face from setting spray.
It didn't add much volume, and adding more layers caused spider legs, it was really pretty awful. Then it flaked and smudged during the day. I will be returning this. It wouldn't be worth it if it were 1/2 the price.

I love this mascara!! Gives the most beautiful and natural lengthened lashes while still providing volume. Holds a curl really well! Only con is it does smear when in contact with water since it is not waterproof and it tends to flake a bit.
Mascara is too expensive as it doesn't lengthen or add volume.

I wanted to make this my go-to mascsra, but i dont love it. It doesnt build well, requires a primer to have any lift or volume, snd its dries out after about 6 weeks of using every other day. Too expensive for the quality. It does look beautiful, and the vrush is nice, but there are better formulas.

Color is intense and flattering. Case is beautiful; however, it is not sealed by manufacturer. It is unfortunate that I didn't get clean eyelash coverage and the mascara flaked off throughout the day, with too many particles falling on to my cheek and into eyes.

Really love this mascara, gives amazing volume and definition. I use L'Oreal Telescopic as a primer and with this on top as a second coat my lashes look amazing!
Kiki from New Jersey
I really wanted to love this mascara as my lashed have become shorter, thinner and straight. I was really disappointed because the mascara did nothing for my lashes except make them darker. It did not volumize, curl or lengthen AT ALL.

I was soooo excited to try this product. Sadly, it flaked so badly. I couldnt believe it. For such a high end product, please DO NOT waste your money!!!

I love how it lengths my lashes and how it separates them!

I was a le volume fan but this might be my new go to! It gives me a length and volume and I am super happy with my purchase. This mascara is my one staple splurge and I do not regret it!
KNJ from Florida
The packaging is luxurious. However, the product does not live up to Chanel standards. It flakes very easily and does not coat the lashes well.
Sarah from Kentucky
I am a die hard Chanel mascara fan, but this one is a no for me. It's super flakey and makes spider leg lashes 98% of the time.

I bought this because the sales person was saying it gives this dramatic effect of everything - curling, volume and length. In reality it's exactly the same as any other mascara of higher level, so I literally put Lancôme mascara on one eye and Chanel on the other and didn't see the difference.

I read the reviews and bought it anyway. I was intrigued by the description. So glad I did! Amazing mascara with a great delivery system! I currently have 10 to 12 mascaras in different brands. This is in my top 2. I love the definition I get with my lashes. I do poke my eye frequently with the brush...not sure why. It's not a fat, fluffy brush.

originally tried this as a tester. Loved it much more than the le volume chanel mascara. Leaves lashes long and defined. Don't like the gimicky packaging on the full size, I feel like the product will dry out fast bc no actual twist seal to keep air out
April from Colorado
The only good thing about this mascara was the packaging, but it's terrible quality like the others have said the minute any water touches it, it starts to run. I'll stick to my other mascaras that are half the price and better quality

I love Chanel Le Volume Mascara-- It's my favorite of all time. But this was a real disappointment. It went on goopy and unevenly and didn't look natural at all, or dramatic, just poorly done. I'll stick with Chanel Le Volume. I'd give it two stars but for the price, 1.

It's okay. Definitely not worth the price. Smudges after a while, but it goes on very nice.

I've used several Chanel products in the past and loved all of them so I had high expectations for this mascara. Sadly, I returned it the next day. It's too "wet" a formula and seemed to pull my lashes down and almost zero volumizing even after 3 coats. I gave it 2 stars for the pretty packaging, but it really isn't worth the hefty price tag. I'll stick with my MACStack!
Mikel from Manchester CT
I bought this mascara primarily because of the color, the applicator brush and sleek container. Which I still think are really nice. But, this mascara runs as soon as the smallest bead of water touches it, which makes it essentially unwearable. As a result, it smudges super easy and that is hardly desirable. It is much too expensive to perform so poorly.
Kat from Milwaukee, WI
I was a little skeptical because of the price at first, but it is AMAZING. It's fabulous from the first click to open it, which is very cool and I can't wait to show it off to all my friends haha. You do have to do kind of a spin motion with the brush to get the curl but it curls so well! It truly is an everything mascara that doesn't go clumpy.
sam from upper arctic
I found this mascara to create long, dark black lashes. I couldn't detect any red, just a very black product. My lashes became so long with this wonderful brush they were brushing my brow bone! I prefer this to Chanel's Le Volume, which made a mess of my lashes.
Leslie from New Jersey
This was a nice mascara. I really liked how it seperated my lashes and i liked the sleek packaging best. I feelci will stick to my le volume but this was still a good mascara
TT from FL
Absolutely love this formula, brush, and results but HATE the packaging! It's hard to screw the brush cap back on before it clicks back down. I'm afraid it will dry out quickly. Please Chanel, change the packaging to a normal screw top cap!
Dani from Chicago li
Overpriced and smudges. Made my lashes fall in 2 minutes. There is so much better drugstore mascaras
