So, I am extremely excited to review Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara! I know it isn’t a fairly new product launched by Chanel, but since the time I have discovered it, I have been using it non-stop, every morning before I head out the door. I am a MASSIVE fan of all Chanel things, be it their bags or their beauty products and I just had to have it when I saw it while shopping in Selfridges. It comes in 3 colours ‘Noir’ (black), ‘Rouge Noir’, ‘Brun’ and ‘Purple’ (Plum). I am going to review the ‘Noir’ version since I prefer black mascara over all colours.

For a sophisticated result – Extreme VOLUME, absolute LENGTH, bold CURL: your lashes take on a new dimension and become the assets of fascinating, intense eyes. The new INIMITABLE INTENSE formula features a patented* blend of a vinyl copolymer and wax for a smooth and even coating on the lashes to enhance every dimension of your lashes. As inimitable as ever, its high-tech brush in soft, flexible white elastomer evenly coats each lash from root to tip. Lashes are instantly lengthened, curled and separated. Its conical shape reaches even the smallest lashes at the corner of the eye. Daytime makeup shows off new sensuality and evening looks captivate with incomparable intensity. INIMITABLE INTENSE interprets Black in 4 intensities: Black in its pure state, Black smoldering with brown, Black enhanced with navy or the legendary Rouge-Noir, offering an intense gaze to the eye.
My Experience with Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara – Noir:
Since the time I have started using a mascara, I have never found “THE” mascara for my eyelashes. I have been using the Maybelline Colossal Volume Express for my eye lashes, on and off since 2 years, and even though I find it a good drugstore fix, I was never really fully content with it. After using this mascara, I have been obsessed with everything about it, its packaging, the way it feels on my lashes and most importantly, how it looks on my lashes.
One coat of this amazing formula and you are good to go! It provides colour from root to top with one single coat. It does not clump my eyelashes, it is so lightweight, and it coats my eyelashes so well without being messy. Chanel calls their wand unique and it is supposed to create bigger, intense lashes and BOY! does it do its job well!! I have used the YSL Effet Faux Cils and the baby doll version previously as well from my mother’s makeup stash several times, but according to me, this one creates more length and overall volume, making it a better purchase than the above two in my opinion.
I used to never really understand the importance of a mascara until very recently. As we all know that a mascara does the perfect job of opening the eyes and as a university student, I understand the significance of this very gravely. Late night studying for finals, completing assignments and then waking up super early to attend lectures with strict attendance policies takes a massive toll on me and I end up looking like a troll! This mascara has saved me BIG TIME. It opens my eyes with just one coat, gives my eyelashes a fluttery gorgeous look, and the best bit of it all is that it does not take much time at all while getting dressed in the mornings.
Wait Wait Wait! that’s not it, on a special night out, this mascara is again your best friend. I can assure you after applying 2-3 coats of it, you can say good bye to false eyelashes. It gives my eyelashes dramatic volume and length, without them looking messy or clumpy or fake! What more can a girl ask for? Personally, I would not suggest more than 2-3 applications as the eyelashes might appear too caked with product. It works well on the lower eyelashes also since its wand is not huge and has thin bristles and distributes the product to all eyelashes evenly.
Overall, I am more than satisfied with this mascara and even if I don’t apply kajal (kohl), I make it a point to apply this beauty since it has done wonders for me and is completely worth the money spent.
Pros of Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara – Noir:
- One coat is needed for opening the eyes, less time consuming.
- Does not clump, flake or look messy.
- Feels extremely light on my eyes.
- Stays on for long hours.
- 2-3 coats enough for a dramatic look.
- Single mascara enough for all looks.

Cons of Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara – Noir:
- Cannot find any!
Would I Repurchase Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara – Noir?
Yes, I am really obsessed with it and intend to use the full thing and purchase it again once I am through with the bottle. I think it is a product that definitely does stand out from the others and I know it is a bit expensive 🙁 but it is worth splurging the extra money on!
