Elegance is elevated to the extreme with the new Le Volume de Chanel Mascara, a high-precision mascara that provides instant volume and intense color. In a single stroke, its innovative formula expands and plumps lashes to their fullest for a bold, yet elegant statement.
This new mascara is formulated with a combination of natural waxes to increase volume. The brush is innovative - Chanel's patented "Snowflakes" brush - offering unique long and short bristles that evenly coat and separate lashes while building volume.
Sounds good, but does it really do that? Yes! As a rule, I don't like volumizing mascaras (I wear lengthening ones). Volumizing mascaras usually glop my eyelashes together - no matter what the marketing says. Le Volume de Chanel Mascara doesn't glue my lashes together. It provides the color I like (black - Noir) from root to tip with one coat. It's a buildable mascara, so those who desire more coverage or volume can apply a second coat without clumping. I found I only needed one coat to create a smashing effect.
I'm wearing Le Volume de Chanel as I write, and I keep looking in a mirror, admiring my eyelashes. This one's a winner.
Saks Chevy Chase received 24 of them. I bought one of the just-unpacked beauties. I know many of you have been waiting for this latest mascara innovation from Chanel. Now's your chance - if you want one before Black Friday. Just call the phone number above. Naturally, there are other counters that received a limited supply for the preview. I just don't know where they are. I noticed Nordstrom shows it on their Web site, but it's not available. In fact, I got my photo from their site.
