Clarins Instant Definition Mascara Intense Plum Review and Swatches

So here is the next product, I have already reviewed the 3-Dot Eye Liner, from Clarins’ Autumn collection that I want to tell you about.

I have been wearing this mascara for around three weeks almost every week. And I am glad that I did not post my review earlier because  I have changed my opinion about it from liking to loving a lot.


To tell the truth, it’s because I was expecting a mascara that would really make my lashes look purple… And it did not. But first of all, it is called intense plum, not bright lilac, so it was not supposed to be a bright lilac, as I was picturing it (I actually used to have such mascara in the past, so maybe this why I had such expectations).

Although the colour hardly showed on my lashes, it just did not look as intense as black and it was hard to say that it was purple, I kept wearing it.   And I am happy that I did. You’ll find out why soon 😉

I love the brush a lot as it allows you to use it even on the shortest lashes which is great. And I also love the general effect of Instant Definition mascara: it is not very dramatic but not barely there ‘natural’ effect which I hate, it is just on-spot for an every day look. I don’t  get a false lash effect but enough length and volume for me to like it and keep in my makeup bag, which is saying a lot, as I have so many mascaras. It does not smudge or

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?
