All you need to channel a Parisian supermodel: a little mascara followed by a layer of Chantecaille’s Brilliant Gloss.

Chantecaille

Birchbox Breakdown

Before we ever got our hands on this chi-chi mascara, we’d already heard it praised to the moon by our magazine editor and lady blogger friends. Not ones to settle for secondhand experience, we put it to the test. The verdict? It meets our top three lash priorities: mega volume, serious length, and perky curl. Plus, the water-resistant formula won’t smudge or flake off—we pinky swear.

How it Works

Each sleek wand is filled with a unique formula designed to be extra-durable. Natural waxes add thickness and curl to your lashes, while red seaweed extract increases the length of each lash. The dense bristle brush makes it easy to pile on the layers.

How to Use

Apply one coat for a subtle eye-enhancing look, and add more coats to amp up the volume.

It is the best.

Best mascara I have ever tried. Period! Never will I go back to anything else. No clumps or lumps, just perfection. I wish it came in other colors.

Lasts and doesn't clump
Purchased

I love this mascara! Never have I spent so much on a beauty product and been so satisfied! It lasts all day and doesn't clump even when I reapply for an evening out!

Amazing

One of my all-time favorite mascaras. Quickly applies, separating lashes wonderfully in a single coat. A little pricey, but worth it for those days when your eyes need a little extra something.

Wha?
Purchased

Not sure why this get such great reviews. It's a nice mascara. It does smell nice. But...
It does clump. First try.
It does smudge a bit.
It doesn't last very long.
I used 400 points to purchase two tubes of this stuff due to the almost perfect reviews. Meh... I kinda feel cheated.

Best. Mascara. Ever.

This mascara is amazing--I'm a big mascara snob, always on the hunt for something better. This is creamy, dark black and goes on without clumps. It's better than any luxury brand out there, and I have tried them all.

Best tip: you can reapply another coat at the end of a long day and it doesn't flake. Just refreshes and looks FAB.

Amazing mascara

I absolutely love this mascara. It smells amazing and goes on smoothly. It's a rich black color that is great for a night out, but a light coat works in the daytime too. It's a little pricy but worth it in my opinion.

Expensive, but worth it.

I received this sample in a box about 6 months ago and I just love it. I have tried nearly every mascara out there and despite the shocking price double the average price of most department store brands...I am purchasing the full size. Hands down accentuates my eyelashes in a very dramatic but fuss-free way. One coat is enough for everyday, 2 coats on the top and one on the bottom is as showy as false lashes! This bumped my old favorite, Benefit BadGal, to #2.

Love it

I have really long eyelashes. I love how the brush makes my lashes look full and not clumped together. Its my favorite mascara that I have tried. Only Con is that its so expensive.

meh

I've been waiting to use this for a couple months - had a couple things already in the queue and it's definitely a let down. It's nice, yes... but I would never pay $42 for this. It definitely doesn't stack up to Diorshow or some of the Benefit options.

Disappointing

I was so excited to try this mascara and was so disappointed. Not only does it clump, but there was very little product in the tube. I don't mind splurging on a product that I love, but unfortunately, I felt this was of little value.
