Remember Colored Mascara?

It's back with a vengeance! When I was a teenager, I couldn't get enough of the stuff - the bolder the better! My basketball team's colors were blue and gold. What better way to show team spirit then some blue-tinted lashes? Maybe a bit of HAIR mascara (remember that too? oh god).

Despite my teenage overdose with colored mascara, I'm still very interested in all the options that are out there now. Every brand under the sun is churning out a rainbow of shades - Dior, Estee Lauder, MAC, Urban Decay, NYX, and so on.

So is there a way to wear these without looking silly or clownish? Or should colored mascara be saved for nights out on the town?


  1. I am glad it's back because I just bought some electric blue mascara! I think what I'm going to do is put a couple of coats of black mascara on the top of my upper lashes, and then a couple of coats of blue on the bottom of my upper lashes. So that the blue only shows when I have my eyes open. (or maybe I should try the opposite haha) I tried the blue on it's own and it was a bit too much for me.

  2. HAIR MASCARA OH MY GOD! HAHAHA. WHY did they come up with that and push it on us poor little half brained teenagers.

    I think colored mascara is fine if you're wearing a DARK color (totally playing it safe) dark blue or a dark purple would look fine - I guess.


  3. @pretty - I bought the same color, electric blue! so funny. I agree, I like it on the bottom lashes because it's just enough color without being overpowering. Let me know how you like yours!

    @nora - HAHAHA I can always count on you to understand! I know, hair mascara was like a cruel joke.

  4. A dark purple just on the tips of your top lashes really sets off blue or green eyes.
