I used the CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Rouge Noir ($38) for years, and when I saw Clinique’s latest Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara in Black Honey ($20), it instantly reminded me of my old favourite.
I first saw the Clinique mascara on Lily Pebbles’ blog (it’s a great post, go check it out). I definitely share her love of the colour, I've been a fan of aubergine/burgundy/ox blood coloured mascaras since I first tried the previously mentioned CHANEL offering. It’s not black but the Clinique mascara still leaves a lovely, deep colour on the lashes with the perfect hint of colour.
The actual application of this mascara is quite natural. If you like a really thick, dramatic lash look you’re probably not going to be a fan. The wand does a good job a separate the lashes and providing length but you can't really get a particularly dramatic look – not necessary a bad thing, especially if you’re new to experimenting with coloured mascaras. That being said, this is definitely not a product to be scared of, I anticipate that this colour works for most people.
If you’re looking to expand your makeup repertoire but you still want a natural look, this is a great place to start!
Have you tried this? What’s your favourite coloured mascara?
