Best Mascaras for Colored Lashes

The Best Mascaras for Colored Lashes

Benefit BADgal Plum ($19.00) will help warm up eyes! You can see me using it here. I definitely prefer plum over brown for more natural-looking lashes, too! BADgal is a reliable mascara formula that gives some length, average thickening, but it doesn’t clump up easily (which is always a huge plus in my book).

Urban Decay Big Fatty ($17.00) is available in several different shades–from Electric Blue to Purple Haze. Use colored mascaras to help bring out different colors in your eyes. Big Fatty has a larger-sized brush, so for those of you who aren’t used to it, you may find it a little difficult to adjust to at first. However, I’ve found UD’s colored mascaras to work better than the average one, so it’s worth trying out.

Laura Gellar Line & Define ($20.00) is more than a mascara, actually, with one side meant to line and the other side is a mascara wand. There are five shades available, with New Navy being my personal top pick as it really makes your eyes appear whiter.

Givenchy Eye Fly Lash Extender ($24.00) comes in a gorgeous indigo blue called Fly in Blue, as well as a fun violet shade called Fly in Violet. It’s a little on the pricey side, but it gets the job done well. I particularly like the lengthening it gives me.

YSL Everlong ($26.50) comes in lots of fun colors, and the brush is really spectacular. There are just so many bristles on this baby that it really helps coat every lash.

Nicole – Is the BE Buxom Lash you referenced a colored mascara? What color do you like best? I LOVE the BE Buxom Lipglosses so I can imagine the mascara is great too. Just wondering…

I don’t really know what colour would suit me so I usually just stick to black. I’m always worried blue or purple will look too bold!

ps: loving the “five ways”! Have you heard about Phenomen’Eyes by Givenchy ( by the way? I’m curious to know whether that really does the trick… Would be great if you could try it out and let us know! *Magellan eyes*

Ohh, Roxanne — they probably won’t look too bold! Even if you have blond lashes, you should be OK!

I have it, and I like it, but it does take a lot more time to use!

I liked urban decays big fatty macuras. I had the electric blue and the purple color. I only used it 2x then threw it out. the colors are super vibrant when the sun’s light directly hits your lashes unforunately it cannot beat stila’s major lash in black.

LOVE colored mascaras! I use them as much as the black ones. From my experience, the ones I have tried and like are:
_ Urban Decay Big Fatty. I tried all the colors and my fave is Electric Blue. The other ones don’t show as much. They dry fast though so when I open one, I have to use as much as possible and as fast as possible.
– Christian Dior Dior Show in blue (can’t remember the name for it). It’s an awesome blue.
I prefer mascara wands with big brushes and both these qualify.
– Mac had 2 LE colored mascaras (a blue and a purple one). I still use them. They are awesome. I wish that they would carry colored mascara as a perm line

the covergirl lash blast luxe colored mascaras are good, i have the purple one ! i havent tried out the eyelights yet, still on my to do list
