FOTD: It's all about the teal mascara

It's a Chanel day today. With the exception of my NARS Orgasm Blush, of course. But the product that is really getting me going lately is the teal mascara from Chanel's summer collection. Yes, it's teal. No, I'm not kidding, and yes, I'm wearing it. No worries - it's not the crazy colors you remember from the 80s (if you're my age, anyway - some of you won't remember the shocking yellow mascara we all wore for about two days).

ANYWAY. It's Chanel's Inimitable Mascara in emeraude. And I really like it. Here is how I use it:

  • Apply two coats of Lorac Lotsa Lash Mascara in Black and let dry throughly.
  • Apply one coat of the Chanel. Brush out well, or else you might have a clumpathon going on, I usually do.
  • Let it dry completely and apply another coat of Chanel if you really want the teal to pop.
The Emeraude works really well with the waterproof eyeliner that goes with this collection as well as one of the shadows in the quad. You may think this set is all about the bronze, but surprise! It's really all about this golden green that shows up in just about every eye product in the collection. Really, every time I use it I like it even more.

On my lips I'm wearing Gazelle, the gloss from the same collection, which I love. Don't look for lasting power, though. But it's super fab while it lasts.

And as a final touch, I'm wearing Bobbi Brown Beach EDP Fragrance Spray.
