Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash
With the price out of the way, this is a really good mascara. It lengthens quite dramatically and doesn't clump. I don't find it overly thickening, but I don't like piled on mascara so it's likely that a more dramatic effect is possible with more coats. It does not weigh down a curl, doesn't feel crunchy, doesn't flake and removes easily with my usual makeup remover/cleanser. I also like the shape of the brush:
Before applying (after curling lashes).
Similar mascaras I've tried: Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells gives a similar effect, but I'd rather buy from an independent line than a L'Oreal one, and the Lancome smudged more.
I found I rarely bothered with the serum from the Sue Devitt Lash Intensifier and Lengthening Mascara, and the formula of the mascara itself dried out a bit too quickly for my liking.
