Chanel Inimitable Waterpoof Mascara in Blue Note: Review, Pics, Swatches

Coloured mascara was an unexpected beauty trend this summer – and one I didn’t think I’d be getting on board with.

But when Chanel got in on the act, my opinions changed: suddenly, a flash of coloured lashes started to feel both modern and chic.

And when I saw how it brightened the whites of my eyes, and intensified their colour, I was pretty much sold.

L'ete de Papillon Chanel Summer 2013 Makeup Collection

Part of the brand’s summer collection, L’Été Papillon de Chanel, which is on counter now, Blue Note is the most universally wearable of the four new mascara offerings.

It’s joined on counter by Aqua Blue, a turquoise, Lime Light, a jade green and Zest, a bright yellow, all of which are surprisingly pigmented and give a definite flash of colour to the eyes.

Perfect for holidays –whether that’s exploring cities in the summer heat or lounging around by the pool – this mascara is not only waterproof, but does a lovely job of lengthening my lashes, too.  

The Inimitable Waterpoof Mascaras are €30 and limited edition so if you want to get your hands on one, you’d best hotfoot it to your nearest Chanel counter, and fast. 

What do you think, is coloured mascara a summer trend you’ll be rocking this year?

Check out my other favourite piece from this collection here.

I've got mine on right now Emma!! I find wearing a good blue eyeliner really accentuates the colour & I always apply 2 coats :)
Happy Wednesday Hun xoxo

This would look boodiful with YSL's Azure Blue liner from last year. Love blue on your eyes missus!

Lilli said...

I've always liked colored mascara, but it's tricky to pull off. Alone, it's nothing. You have to have the right hair, makeup and outfit. LOL

Looks great on you! I personally prefer purple mascara on myself if I wear coloured mascara

Looks fab on you Emma! I haven't used coloured mascara in years but I definitely would try one again, not sure I'd pay Chanel prices but I'd definitely pick a budget one up just to try it.

I guessed it from your facebook post. Blue mascara is such a blast from the past!

I think blue mascara is the perfect make up trend to try out during summer. I used to have a dark purple Clarins one and I loved it for a bit of fun. I love the campaign photos for this collection and how they used the blues and yellows on the lashes.

I just don't think I'd ever be able to rock it! I would love to try some of their new stylo's though, they look amazing :D xx

I tried the Bourjois bright blue summer mascara but wasn't impressed with the formula. Although the colour looked very pretty with my brown eyes, it didn't do anything for my lashes...

Chloe said...

It looks so nice on you Emma! Really intrigued by yellow mascara too x

I love colored mascara! I like to use purple and green mascara on the bottom lashes for a pop of color. I am a new follower by the way! :) I found you on beautylish
