I was back at Bloomingdale’s for the holiday season and I decided to snap up some high-end beauty items with my employee discount. You know I can’t resist Chanel so I decided to try their new Le Volume de Chanel mascara, which came out in November. I normally never splurge on mascara since this is an item you can get at a great price with good quality (usually) from a drugstore.

I have to say, however, the old adage “You get what you pay for” definitely applies here. This is one of the best mascaras I have ever used, dare I say THE best? It makes my lashes look so long, the separation is great, and I think it gives lashes the right amount of fullness without overdoing it and without clumping. My lashes are still super long after wearing this for more than 8 hours. It is only sold in “Noir” and it is pricey at $30 but if you want a luxe mascara to start 2013, this is the one to get!

On a completely unrelated side note, I wanted to share this picture I took of Bloomingdale’s in their holiday lights, which I love.
