Coloured Mascaras

Colored mascara or Lash tint is so in trend these days. Almost all big names has released a wide range of colored mascara. My favorites are from Chanel, Tom Ford and YSL.

Chanel mascara has always been my favorite for its formula and natural feel. Mascaras from Chanel give such a natural volume and length without being heavy or clumpy on my lashes even if they are waterproof formula. I would give them a little more time to dry before applying any other makeup on eyes. fullsizeoutput_178a

Chanel Inimitable Mascara ($32 for 6gm/ 0.21 Oz, Made in France) in shade 30-Noir Brun is a very subtle brown shade. It is non waterproof classic formula, delicate, doesn’t smudge or flake. It definitely lengthens my lashes and add curl to them. I can go from natural to dramatic look with this mascara.

Aubergine is a kind of purple with pink undertone whereas Turquoise is a perfect teal. Shades are very subtle, doesn’t pop up too much. Formula is pigmented and shimmery. I never experienced any smudging or smearing while wearing this mascara. I usually wear it in my low makeup days to give my look a hint of colour.
