New from Clinique for Fall 2015 is the Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara, a volumizing mascara that aims to plump lashes without weighing them down. It comes in regular black (Jumbo Jet) as standard, and also four limited edition colors, plum (Portly Plum), teal (Two Ton Teal), navy (Massive Midnight) and a gorgeous burgundy known as Bodacious Black Honey, which is the one I plumped for.
I have got a bit obsessed lately with using eye products to really emphasize my green eyes and make them stand out. Not only are burgundy/aubergine/wine shades one of my favorite colors, they also work well with green eyes to really make them pop. I thought it would be fun to try something a little different too.
The mascara itself has a beautiful formula, I wouldn’t say it was intensely volumizing, more lengthening (it really lengthens well though especially after a few coats) and separating with some fullness. It doesn’t clump on me and stays in place all day long without smudging and flaking. The plastic wand with short bristles makes it easy to apply and is buildable to achieve your desired look.
Bodacious Black Honey is a beautiful color, to look at from a distance your lashes still appear black as the mascara is deep in color. However, this beautiful burgundy shade has a certain warmth to it that makes my green eyes look prettier and softer, but still with the definition you would get from a black mascara.
I am a little addicted to this, it makes a nice change from black mascara and find it especially suitable for daytime as when the sunlight catches your lashes is when it really intensifies the color of my green eyes. I can’t wait to wear it this Autumn when all the warmer, richer colors are back in season, I think it will be perfect!
