Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel Sophistique Review
Fond fans of Chanel Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensional should be excited at the latest mascara offering from the brand entitled Inimitable Intense Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel Sophistique.
The new formula builds on the success of the old giving lashes greater volume, length, and curl.
A new take on an old Chanel favorite offering lashes an intense 3D effect, with greater volume, length and curl.
Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel Sophistique sports a plastic straight line applicator with tiny teeth. By today’s standards, the applicator isn’t particularly incredible or special however the tiny teeth embedded within it are what really creates the magic here. These teeth enable the brush to catch lashes, allowing them to be pulled forward and up with a twist of the brush, even my smaller lashes towards the inner corner of my eye are captured and pulled out. The results? Longer, fuller lashes with a nice bit of curl.
The formula is very pigmented. I tried the Brown and Black version and you’ll be quite pleased with the effects of the black if you’re a smoky eye kinda girl as the formula is rich in color and gives lashes a blacker than black tint. The formula feels heavy however it doesn’t weight my lashes down so curl is kept quite well particularly when using a curler prior to application. Since the formula runs towards the thicker side, I do suggest slowly pulling the applicator through your lashes to avoid clumping drama. With proper care and attention during application, you’ll see pretty dramatic results in regards to nice lenght and fuller lashes.
(Black and Brown Swatches)
I felt the mascara definitely performed best in the ways of fuller lashes rather than incredibly longer lashes. Yes, you will get a nice bit of lenght from it but its strong point, at least for me, was how it created a fuller fringe of lashes. Those with stubbier lashes can definitely rejoice in something that will create the illusion of a fuller lash look.
One of the nicest things about the product is the lack of bells and whistles with the applicator. I’m a little wary of all the crazy contraptions, bells, and whistles that come along with applicators lately. This is pretty standard by most means and doesn’t make me feel like I’m about to poke my eye out with it.
One layer is best to work with so make it a good one. The best application for me is curling lashes prior and applying directly after. Don’t try to work several layers on as I felt this made my lashes stiff and crunchy and in some cases clumping would occur. One layer should yield perfect results without going through a reapplication process.
- Anyone looking for fuller lashes with a formula that holds curl without weighting lashes down!
- Chanel mascara fans (fans of Chanel mascara will instantly love this!).
- Anyone seeking death defying lash lenght (the strong point of Sophistique definitely falls in the realms of fuller lashes but not so much lenght).
- Anyone unwilling to dish out on costly mascara (this is $30).
For those who have experienced the joys of Chanel mascara this is one worth checking out. It creates a nice, dramatic set of fuller lashes. Newbies to the world of Chanel mascara may also benefit from this as well particularly those who have stubbier, shorter lashes as this gives the illusion of lash inserts since it grabs every lash and pulls them up and outward.
