Man am I hard to please on the mascara front. I've been trying out one of the most popular high end mascaras, Chantecaille Faux Cils and am I going to sit here and tell you that my 17(ish) year hunt for the perfect mascara is over? No I'm not. Do I really, really like it? Why, yes I do thanks.
I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that maybe you just need to have a few mascaras and use each one depending on your mood/requirements/make-up.
This is certainly the higher end pricewise.
I didn't buy it I was given a sample size to test and test it I have. It's probably best to start with the smell as that's one of the first
things you will notice about it. Roses. If you love them then this is a
great added extra, if you are not that keen like me then it's totally
fine, it's not like it lingers. If you find the smell of roses
absolutely repellent then give this one a miss. It's not so mind blowing
that you need to get over your sense of smell. I would tell you if it
There are no clumps, no flaking. It's easy to apply and easy to remove. The packaging is unremarkable - not over the top, too girly, too childish. And my lashes feel great when it's on and when it's been removed. No damage, no falling out. No manic rubbing to get the last little bits off. I'd say that this is best for those who have pretty good lashes already. Mine are ok and I have to work pretty hard building this up to get the desired look but my lashes aren't that long and I'm a big fan of a lot of mascara. A. Lot. Does it make look like I have false lashes on (faux cils?) I don't think so but this has become my go-to mascara for when I'm not wearing any make-up or a nude eye. Your lashes will look defined but not like you are wearing a ton of mascara.
So if you have £35 to spend on a mascara this is a really good choice. From what I can tell it's very kind to your lashes, it's a proper black colour and the end result is beautiful. Even if you have to work for it.
