Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara

Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara

Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara

In 2006, CHANEL launched INIMITABLE Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel, revolutionizing the market with the first multi-tasking mascara to deliver volume, length, curl and separation in a single stroke. It also redefined the conventional mascara brush with an innovative applicator comprised of elastomer ‘bristles’ that allowed for a remarkably precise application.

New INIMITABLE INTENSE Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel Sophistiqué builds on the success of the original mascara with a new, technologically advanced formula, delivered with the unique brush. The result is a more intense lash look, with the same easy application. Lashes appear longer, thicker and more curled, yet each lash, even the finest, is still precisely separated — without clumping, spiking or flaking.

Now there are two choices for INIMITABLE lashes: the original formula for a subtle 3D effect, with volume, length and curl — and the new formula for a more intense 3D effect, with greater volume, length and curl.

Chanel Ombres Contraste Duo / Eyeshadow Duo

Chanel Ombres Contraste Duo / Eyeshadow Duo

New OMBRES CONTRASTE DUO Eyeshadow Duo takes the guesswork out of harmonizing and applying eyeshadow. This foolproof pairing of complementary shades — in two unique textures — is housed in one convenient compact. The softly shimmering light shade is a creamy powder, which can be worn alone for a luminous effect, or as a base to extend the wear of the accompanying deep-toned shadow. The dark shade has intense micronized pigments for true colour application, and a matte finish to create depth and contour. Two applicators are included: a foam tip to apply the shadows and a brush to blend. Available in six essential shade harmonies.

Chanel Ombres Contraste Duo / Eyeshadow Duo ($42.00)

  • Khaki-Clair Hunter green / Ivory
  • Taupe-Delicat Brown taupe / Soft peach
  • Berry-Rose Plum rose / Soft pink

Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 3 Look: Gold, Plum, Green

Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 3 Look:  Gold, Plum, Green

I told you I’d have a look for you soon! :)  I did film a tutorial for this look, and I’m hoping to have that up on Friday-ish.   Hope everyone’s having a fantastic Thursday!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Primer Potion as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Maui Wowie eyeshadow on the inner half of the lid and pull upwards along the inner crease. Lightly blend Rockstar eyeshadow on the outer half of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Loaded eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending onto the outer lid.  Blend Trench eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Rockstar eyeliner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply #15 blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116, then lightly pat Beige Lumineux meteorites on the cheekbones, forehead, bridge of nose, and chin.

For lips, apply Naked lipstick first, and then layer Midnight Cowboy lip junkie for a complementing lip.
