Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review of the Chanel Le Volume Stretch De Chanel.
This mascara legit just came out and I was quite curious. I’m still stuck on my YSL The Shock Mascara and I never like Chanel Mascaras but I thought since I usually like these kinds of brushes I could like this one.
You know I always say mascara, more than any other product, is super personal, what I like is not necessarily the best for everyone.
If you are new here, I personally like a mascara that does everything: lengthens and volumizes but more than anything I need something that holds a curl.
The Chanel Le Volume Stretch De Chanel is available here for 35$.
The packaging is classic of mascara.
It has an oval silicone brush that kind of twirls around which is my favourite kind of brush because it allows to grab every lash and create a super defined and volumized look.
Sadly, I think the actual bristles are too short to do that.
The formula is quite liquidy and very black, if you are not careful it tends to transfer on your lids when you apply it.
EFFECT & APPLICATION
I always do two coats to get the best results.
I think this mascara is very bland: it doesn’t do much for my lashes, despite the name it’s not volumizing and I don’t find it particularly good at holding a curl.
It’s kind of lengthening so maybe you can like it if you don’t need too much volume.
For me, though the effect is simply not there, my lashes just look more black but quite spidery.
This mascara lasts all day on me without flaking or smudging.
I find it fairly easy to remove with micellar water, I don’t have the black halo around my eyes when I wake up.

I think is obvious that I don’t like this mascara at all. It could work for you if you only need a lengthening one. Obviously, it makes the name pretty deceiving in my opinion since as a volumizing mascara is a gigantic epic fail. The packaging is obviously gorgeous but the brush is terrible. I don’t recommend it at all, especially since it’s so pricey.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
