Chanel Exceptionnel Mascara was introduced with the Smoky Eyes collection back in 2008, and was being touted as the Mac-Daddy of volumizing mascaras. With a state of the art double helix shaped brush sporting both bristles and plastic teeth; this mascara is meant to grab each and every lash while extending, lengthening, and thickening lashes like crazy.
Observe, the brush:
This mascara is an expensive indulgence, weighing in at a whopping $30! Is it worth it though? I really do think so! I get amazing and long-lasting volume and curl with just 2 coats. No flaking, no smudging. Just instant fat, long lashes!
Pictures don’t lie, and here they are 🙂
Yep, this mascara is love. Of course if this is out of your price range, Make Up For Ever Smoky Eyes is still a good option. I wish I could say that drugstore mascaras are worth it, but the last one I used (Loreal Voluminous) was a straight up disaster.
So what do you all think, worth it or no?
