Searching For a Perfect Coloufrul Mascara

I can not think of another makeup product that impressed me as much as  a colourful mascara once did. I still remember the day as if it was yesterday. I was in a bus and suddenly a girl with bold electric blue eye lashes caught my attention. I could not take my eyes away from her, from her lashes actually.

It impressed me so much that I just had to get a colourful mascara! But since it was a very long time ago, it was very hard for me to get one as I was still in school and had no money  for a good, actually for any, colourful mascara.  So after saving for a while I finally got one!  It was one of the happiest moments ever in terms of beauty purchases.

I have chosen a purple mascara instead of blue. But the strangest thing  is that I’ve used it only several times. The reason for that?! It did not give me that stunning effect I was hoping for. Since that I have bought several colorful mascaras in different shades  but none impressed me that much.

I am still hoping to find a beautiful colourful mascara in the future though… But I am almost ready to give up.

What I am looking for? Most  importantly – I want a mascara to give a true vibrant colour, not just a faded out tint that is nearly there.

So tell me… Do you use coloured mascara? Is there any that really gives a stunning colour? Which one is your favourite?

    I have black eyelashes (dark brown hair and eyes) so colourful mascaras only make my lashes lighter which is not so good. I have a blue and a purple one for daylight but I always go back to black for a proper eye make up look!

    A few months ago, I was feasting my eyes on Collistar’s blue mascara from the summer collection. I never bought it because of the price, but I have a feeling it would have been amazing. But my friend bought a blue Dior mascara and she’s very very satisfied with it! When she wears it, you simply can’t take your look off her eye lashes 🙂

    i use a white lash primer and then layer on LaSplash colored mascara…..POP

  4. I have this purple YSL… It does nothing!

    I like the YSL purple one and it looks great. I also have a brown one from ‘majolica majorca’ (one of shisheido line), it is super pretty.

    try Dior’s blue mascaras
    they are electric and amazing!

    (I’ve used Diorshow, the lengthening one, and Iconic – the blue ones in all of these are very colourful)

    I have the Dior show mascara in blue and it is absolutely stunning…..although I am dark-haired my eye-lashes become flawlessly blue:)

    I’m the same as you-only looking for a vibrant blue one. Tried the Korres Abyssinia one in Blue last summer, was quite underwhelming. I hear that the classic Maybelline one (in the green and pink packaging) provides a very intense shade, that will be my next trial! 😉 xx
