As the last installment of Chanel Reflets D’Été de Chanel, we’re taking a quick look at *Chanel Violet Touch Inimitable Waterproof! I have the impression that the colored versions of Le Volumes tend to be very muted, but it is a whole different story with colored Inimitable Waterproofs! Case in point: there is nothing muted about Violet Touch!
Chanel Violet Touch Inimitable Waterproof (67. RRP in Belgium: 31,50 euros) has one more fun factor than the fact that it is violet: purple mascaras might not be new, but have you seen one with sparkle?
Chanel Inimitable Waterproof has a spiky flexible wand. We get along pretty well because the tip is small enough to get to my bottom lashes without much fuss at all. The volumizing formula holds curl well, and it doesn’t make my lashes stiff or too brittle.
You can hopefully see the sparkle in the swatch!
What I like the most about Violet Touch is that it is obviously tinted, but it still gives my lashes enough definition. You might think it doesn’t look dark enough, but it doesn’t make my lashes look like they have disappeared somehow.
Here I’m wearing two coats of Violet Touch with no primer underneath. I wish it would separate my lashes a bit better, but all in all it does a fine job on its own!
I’m wearing Chanel New Moon Illusion d’Ombre as an overall wash. I thought it’d be too much as an overall wash, but I turned out to like it quite a bit on its own! It goes on smooth and nicely-pigmented as well.
Have you jumped on the colored mascara bandwagon? They’re a bit everywhere this year!
