For Christmas my best friend gifted me the gorgeous Chanel Dimensions De Chanel Mascara. It’s definitely one of the most amazing gifts one of my friends has ever gifted me and it’s something I’ve always wanted to try. Since it was a Christmas gift I think it’s clear that I’ve been using it for quite some time now. So far I haven’t had the time to properly sit down and write a review about it, but today I finally managed to find the time to do so. So, if you’re interested in finding out what the Chanel Dimensions De Chanel Mascara is like and whether or not it’s worth the price, make sure you continue reading!
First things first, the packaging. I think most of us beauty lovers know what Chanel packagings look by now and this product comes in a very classic Chanel packaging. The box is black with golden details and white text and the tube itself is all black with one piece of golden around the rim of the opening. It doesn’t really say anything on the tube which I do think looks pretty boring, but it is a very classic look. There is no way I can deny that fact.
However, I just don’t get why Chanel doesn’t really put any text on the tube at all. Even if it’s just the word ‘Chanel’ or the name of the mascara. Maybe they’re trying to keep it simple, but to me this looks very plain and boring and I think the packaging would look a bit classier if it did have at least a tiny bit of something on it. I don’t really mind what, but just something.
The mascara comes with 6 grams of mascara which is, compared to other mascara’s I have used in the past, a very standard amount of product. However, in mascara’s it doesn’t always matter how much product you get. Some dry out very quickly anyway so mostly the formula determines how long it is going to last you.

According to Chanel their Dimensions De Chanel Mascara focusses on the essence: length, curl, definition, volume and care. It’s everything you need to make your eyes pop from every dimension. The innovative wand and the creamy texture of the mascara are supposed to make the application process easier. The formula makes sure that the mascara stays in place for hours and doesn’t smudge. The mascara is supposed to add volume to the lashes, fixate the curl, add a ton of volume (because of the wand) and it’s also supposed to be waterproof and sweat-proof.
Overall it sounds like this is going to be one of those perfect all-in-one mascara’s since it literally does everything you could ever want your mascara to do. The only reason why someone wouldn’t like that is if someone doesn’t like curl, length or volume. Since I really love all those characteristics this mascara seems like a perfect match for me. However, it does sound a little too good to be true if I’m completely honest with you guys.
Even though I was slightly sceptical at first, I completely changed my mind about this mascara. Where I thought the claims were a little too good to be true, I now think they are underselling this product. This literally is the best mascara I have ever tried in my entire life. And trust me, I have tried a ton of mascara’s in my day, but not a single one beats this little guy. It’s incredible!
The first reason why I like it so much is because of the wand. Like most of you probably know by now I’m usually a big fan of spikey silicone wands rather than hairy wands. However, this mascara does come with one of those hairy-kind wands and I do really like it. I don’t really know what it is about this wand but it really does do an amazing job at coating every single one of my lashes with a layer of mascara without making anything look clumpy, thick or weird in any way that might be possible. I’m very impressed by that. It’s also a very quick and easy wand to work with, it’s not too thick in a way it’s hard not to smudge/mess up with it, so it’s perfect for everyone and definitely great for quick makeup routines!
Another reason why I love this mascara so much is because of the formula. Like Chanel already -kind of- told us in their claims this mascara does have a very unique texture. I think it’s very difficult to explain why and I think it’s best if you just give this a try yourself if you really want to know what it’s like, but I am going to try my best to explain to you guys what this formula is like.
You know that some mascara’s have a rather wet formula and other ones have a more dry formula. This mascara is the perfect balance between those two things. It does have a slightly wet texture, but not wet in a way it will be very smudgy. On the other hand it does dry down to a more dry texture, but not flakey dry. It’s just the best of both worlds in one product and I’m a huge fan of it.
Moving on to the effect of the mascara. As I mentioned before I have had this mascara since Christmas and I have used it ever since then, so this is not a swatch of when I first started using this mascara which means that the effect might be a bit less extreme than it would be if you use a fresh tube of this product. Anyway, even though this is the effect after weeks of using this mascara I’m still very much impressed by it. Just look at it, it’s so pretty. It’s everything Chanel claimed it to be and more. It’s volumising, separating, lengthening and it holds the curl really, really well. It’s the perfect amount of drama for everyday but it’s also great to use when you’re going out for the night and you want something more dramatic because you can definitely build it up to a more dramatic look.
Just like with most luxury mascara’s the effect of the mascara stays exactly the same all day long. It doesn’t lose its intensity throughout the day and I like that about this mascara. Especially since I love the look of it so much. It also doesn’t smudge, flake or whatnot. It just stays put all day long without fail.
The only thing you should be a little careful with is crying. It does say it’s water- and sweat-proof, but still, a lot of tears can make this mascara go crazy so beware of that!
Overall I’m a huge, huge fan of this Chanel Dimensions De Chanel Mascara. It’s literally the best mascara I have tried so far and I’m so thankful for Charlotte giving me this. It’s the perfect all-in-one mascara, it just does everything you want your mascara to do. I really love how it looks on my lashes and I highly recommend giving it a try if you’re on the hunt for the best mascara in the whole wide world!
