Blue Notes

Despite the fact wardrobe (mostly black) and apartment decor (red, green, black, and white) may indicate otherwise, blue is my ultimate favorite color. When I was younger I begged for a blue room, but my mother tried told me it would be much too depressing.

One will certainly find proof of my lapis love in my predominantly blue nail polish collection, and recently the color has found its way into other areas of my makeup stash with the purchase of Chanel's Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Blue Note, a summer 2013 limited edition hue.

While the last time I experimented with colored mascara was in high school (in the heyday of face glitter and Bonne Bell, I also regularly wore periwinkle and burgundy mascara by Make Up For Ever), I have now donned cobalt lashes for the past three Saturdays and I don't hate it. I may even need a backup supply because I think Rebs circa 1998 had the right idea.

Blue french tips and lashes are far from solemn - pardon my extreme Photo Booth close-up smirk

I have always been one to embrace bold makeup, and it is unlikely that is going to change...not just yet anyway.

Do you have a favorite color? Would you wear it on your lashes?
