Le Volume de Chanel ($30) was introduced in one shade: Noir. Now, it's available in Bleu and Prune, designed to add captivating color to your eyes.
The high-precision mascara achieves instant volume and intensely lush
color in a single stroke. Its innovative formula expands, plumping
lashes to their fullest. The exclusive new Snowflakes brush combines
long and short bristles to deliver an extreme, eye-opening effect. I've been quite taken with Le Volume de Chanel in Noir. It glams up my look.
Last weekend, I took swatch photos of both new shades. I had the incredible luck of fun sun, so I gave it a try. Swatching mascara shades isn't particularly easy - or me at least. I have to paint many coats of the mascara to get enough color onto a flat surface (my arm). Mascara brushes were not designed for that.
Even though the two new shades shipped in February, they arrived at Saks only recently. I can never figure out "who gets what when."
You can find the new Le Volume de Chanel shades at Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom online. I did not do a comprehensive search, but did not see them on Chanel's Web site. What do you think? Would you use one of these? Which one?
