In my previous mascara post I mentioned the Chantecaille mascara. I am unaware as to how much you ladies know about the brand? Chantecaille are basically a botanical skincare and makeup brand. The products are really luxurious and they use rose water as the base of many of their products. the whole range is beautiful and very loving on the skin.
The faux cils mascara is amazing in the way in which it performs. As previously mentioned this mascara is rosewater based, so naturally anti-bacterial. This is ideal for people with sensitive eyes or for people who wear contacts or are in high humidity etc. Another great thing about this mascara is that is fruit and flower wax based, which means that it doesn't grow the fibres that normal mascaras do - For this reason it doesn't clump the lashes or dry up as quickly as normal mascaras. Because of this Chantecaille's faux cils mascara honestly lasts up to about 5 months. I guess that compensates for the price at £31.It is not exactly the cheapest of mascaras, but one I suggest you try at some point..even if it is just in store, to see what the hype is about.
This mascara works on the lashes individually, the use of red seaweed extracts contributes to lengthening and the use of the natural waxes means this mascara is buildable without becoming clumpy, so you can really create maximum drama. I have to admit I love using this mascara, but there's a part of me that secretly likes thick cloggy mascaras, I also get bored too quickly and like to try out the next thing on the Market! (yes I did just say that)
My mother loved this mascara so much I ended up giving it to her to use! I bought it almost 3 months ago and when I applied this mascara today it still felt like new. I love that! As you can see from the pics, it is more volumous on me than lengthening.
It also smells divine, like roses..which makes a change from the pastic-esque smell of my favourite drugstore ones. Have any of you tried chantecaille products? Would you consider paying £31 on a mascara?
