Today I am reviewing one of the versions of an iconic mascara by the House of Chanel called Inimitable Intense. Chanel makes some really amazing mascaras and this one is no exception. If you are looking for defined and curled yet fluffy lashes with a black almost as a stygian iron (I am reading a lot of Rick Riordan these days).
So lets have a quick review of this beauty in a bottle.............
This technologically advanced formula builds on the success of the original mascara, delivering dramatic effects with a unique brush. The result is a more intense lash look, with the same easy application. Lashes appear longer, thicker and more curled, yet eachlash, even the finest, is still precisely separated – without clumping, spiking or flaking.
It comes in a classic CHANEL packaging with all the wanted details on the box. The black and gold with the write up in white is very chic and easy to read too (unlike Guerlain).
FORMULA and INGREDIENTS
Inimitable Intense mascara has a gel like texture which is on the drier side. This enable a good curling and lengthening effect in the first application. The wand has tiny flexible plastic/rubber bristles to comb through the lashes and separate them. While adding a second coat and when the mascara wand is wiggled through the root of the lashes, the first coat of mascara acts as a primer and enables deposition of the product, thus adding volume. This is a boudoir sort of mascara that has to be applied in coats. 3-4 coats give me the most beautiful lashes ever.
The mascara is quite conditioning and the lashes feel slightly plastic-ky but fluffy. The drying does allow curl and the curl really holds till the mascara is removed. Waxes and Acacia Senegal gum make the lashes amplified with each coat and thus the lashes look defined, curled, volumized and long. It is supposedly good enough without an eye lash curler but I did not notice any dramatic difference when used and not used.
The mascara is intense black just as the name suggests. The jet black color looks amazing and amplifies each and every lash. I do need 3-4 coats for my thin and long lashes and they look like the ones in the picture.

PRICE and AVAILABILITY
I bought mine from the Chanel Store in Palladium Mall for 2250 INR (Revised Rate). I totally recommend this mascara to anyone with thin and long lashes as it does wonders to them. Even medium lashes would be benefited since the formula is dry and does lengthen and curl very well. They are also available in colors other than black so they are a fun to try.
Hope you liked the review. Have you used Chanel mascaras? Do let me know in the comments.
