Chantecaille Faux Cils Mascara

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.

Call me crazy but it's worth the price
Purchased

Alright, maybe wait until you have points to spend. I set myself up for disappointment, envisioned telling myself "told you so," and told my husband this will be the most ridiculous purchase of my life.
I am thrilled to say I proved myself wrong! This mascara delivers AND smells like roses!

Bought two for comparison sake
SampledPurchased

I bought Chantecaille Faux Cils Mascara and the Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Supreme Mascara. I applied one on each eye and walked out to show my husband. He immediately picked the Chantecaille side and I agree 100%-it was a drastic difference. The Laura Mercier is a fine every day but doesn't add the length or thickness of the Chantecaille.

My life will never be the same...
Purchased

never again will I doubt your greatness oh $42 tube of mascara. Once you ran empty I said to myself, "This is crazy. I'm not giving in to you again." We broke up, I bought another, and it wasn't the same. You've ruined me Chatecaille. Ruined. It is the formula? Is it the brush? I don't know. But you will always be mine. I will be back for you. Magic in a tube. The Holy Grail (you know what I mean ladies).

False Lashes to the Extreme

This just makes your lashes absolutely stunning. Great volumizing effect plus lengthening, its a win-win. The only downside is the price.

Pricey, but awesome
SampledPurchased

Best mascara I've ever used. Birch box points make it possible to afford it though. Smells like rose water. Not clumpy, or too thick. Washes off easy. It's literally perfect.

I would marry this mascara
Purchased

Every love someone but can't put your finger on exactly WHY? It just IS. That is how you'll feel about this mascara. People ask if I'm wearing fake eyelashes, never flakes, my eyelashes seem to grow (or at the very least not break off) when I use it, and the smell of roses when you apply it is absolutely D-E-V-I-N-E. I can't imagine not having this little high-end pick me up in my makeup bag to greet me each morning - if you have the $ to splurge, go for it, you won't be disappointed, promise.

I am in LOVE with this stuff! My Mascara Crush xox
Purchased

I'd never heard of Chantecaille before receiving it in my Good Birchbox. I looked at the retail price of $42, and thought OMG, not happening. BUT! When I tried it, it had all those 'dream' components that make up the 'Perfect' mascara! I'm telling you! I don't have terribly skimpy lashes, but they're average. I always wear a good mascara, usually Tarte or Smashbox or Dior... but I have gotten NOTICED since using Chantecaille Faux Cils! I've already purchased my full size and am waiting for it to arrive!

The mascara formula is thin, not too creamy or gloppy, so it doesn't clump, and goes on beautifully. It is the BEST buildable mascara I have ever tried! Finish eye #1 and do eye #2, then go back to eye #1 and the second coat goes on perfectly without clumping or sticking. My lashes were OH SO long and very separate, no tarantula eyes! And they swept UPWARD, or "curled" as people say, they curled up beautifully. I really love the look that this mascara gives my lashes.

Another benefit, the formula stays put, and there was no flaking during the course of the day, and no smearing. The next great benefit? Ease of removal! I use Clarins Eye Makeup Remover, and usually there is a bit of tugging and rubbing to get my usual mascara off, but not with this stuff!!! It came off so easily, and saves my eyes from the pressure and tugging and future wrinkles!

The next great part about this mascara is the wand. I love bristles and I hate those plastic brushes, I like the real thing. The neck of the bottle also does a fabulous job of leaving only the right amount of mascara on the brush. I hate having to scrape the brush against the neck to remove too much!

Excellent product!

I only have the sample size so far, until my order gets here, but in a week of use, the formula has not gotten thick. It doesn't get in my eyes either, and doesn't annoy me. It feels light and not heavy.

I did shell out the big bucks for this stuff, but I really love it!

This is my mascara-crush!

So not worth the money
Purchased

There is nothing in this mascara that warrants the price . I understand if at least the packaging was nice. I have no problem paying a lot for products ; but this is completely meh.

I AM WRITING THIS TO HELP YOU!! You need to know about this stuff. I have bought almost every mascara known to mankind; ranging from $8 to a whopping $62 (I'm the first to admit that was on the other side of crazy) OK- PERFECTION FOUND! Length. Volume. Separation! No raccoon eyes, no clumping, easy to remove. It is a higher price tag than most but worth every darn cent. If you think the price is too high, skip a few meals and use the money to pay for this mascara. You won't be disappointed. Priorities, people!!!

Meh...
Purchased

I was super excited to try this because of all the great reviews, however it didn't quite live up. It does smell like roses, but I can get thicker, longer lashes with $8 mascara from Walmart. I was disappointed.
