  1. I’m a slave to black mascara, I really am. It’s very hard for me to use anything else. I like my lashes to practically EXPLODE off of my face!

  2. My most common and default mascara is of course black. For a night out or an everyday look it’s perfect to open up my eyes and the options are endless! However, I have taken on a new obsession with colored mascara, in particular Benefit’s BADgal collection. It comes in blue and plum – blue is perfect for the summer; plum is great to compliment this Fall’s most popular and trendy color purple.

    Colored mascara is great to switch it up every so often!

    ive been the opposite for the past year. my main mascara color is burgandy , and black is my next fav. i have dark skin and dark brown eyes and the burgandy color really “tricks” my eye color to look sorta greenish brown when i wear it. its pretty cool!

  4. While I like colored mascara, it’s so much fun!!! I just love black mascara. I just love for my lashes to look super full and miles long and I haven’t found a colored mascara that can do that as well as any black mascara.

    i like black. but if mascara is one of the few things im wearing for makeup that day-brown. it makes my blue eyes brighter.

    I really want to try navy blue mascara.

  7. My hair is black and so are my eyelashes…so black it is.
    I’ve tried blue and it didn’t work out too well, but i really want to give plum a try too!

    Black! I’ve tried brown, blue, purple, and turquoise over the years, but black has always, always been right for me!

  9. Black. Other colours wouldn’t show up as well and emphasise my eyelashes! x

  10. I’m a redhead so *technically* I’m supposed to be using brown. But I’m a makeup artist and don’t care what I’m supposed to do. ;)

    I always use the blackest black mascara available. My favorite is by Maybelline. :)

  11. I have used brown and brown-black, but I tend to switch between blue or black. I swear, blue makes blue eyes pop just a little more. And plain-old black is a workhorse.
