My good friend has been forever bugging me to wear coloured mascara
I'm not a fan of them I feel like their too crazy looking for me and never tried any.
She finally got me to try Dior Blue
(which is known for being bright electric blue)
She, and the girl at the makeup counter said it looked really good
I don't know tho I still feel like it looks weird
What do you all think?

(Eyes are red due to swimming earlier that day)

    I'm sorry, but I disagree with them. I don't care for it.

    Maybe for a really dramatic night out, but not for everyday.

    Me either.

    It's all up to what you like though.

    bright electric blue - no.

    maybe a navy? some companies have dark violet mascaras too. and Kevyn Aucoin Beauty used to have burgundy (though i think that would give a lot of us "crying eyes").

    I think it works well on you. I can't wear colors because my lashes are naturally light, and I need the contrast a dark mascara gives, but I think you can, since your lashes are dark already.

    I like it! It might be a tad too bright for daytime tho.

    I used to wear blue or purple mascara when they were popular in the 80s/90s. Now I'm seeing a lot of color mascaras in the stores again so I assume they're coming back in style.

    Dior mascaras are $$$ but great. Enjoy it while you can!

    I used to wear benefit's blue mascara and it wasn't that bright. After a while, it even seemed to fade to where I couldn't tell it was blue anymore, but when I took it off, it was blue on the cotton ball.

    I think it all depends on the shade of blue you're choosing.

    If you want to wear mascara with noticeable color, the rest of your makeup needs to be very neutral and toned down. It's really only appropriate for parties.

    Guys seem to hate noticeable mascara, though. Also, if you need a replacement, Max Factor makes the Vivid Impact line of brightly colored mascaras. In fact, if you want blue that's subtler than the Dior but still noticeable, I'd suggest the blue mascara from Max Factor's Lash Perfection line.

    Bright colors only good for night or parties; not for daytime use? Guys don't like noticeable mascara?

    :eek: Uh oh. Now I wonder if I made a mistake buying the mark/AVON purple mascara.

    I like colored might prefer it if you apply eye makeup also, maybe a soft brown and then apply the mascare lightly.

    It could also be worn in the day (unless you work in a highly professional job) by applying black first, let dry then apply the blue only to the tips of your lashes.

    I think it also depends on your style. If you tend to dress more conservatively then maybe not, but if you like funky accessories and clothes then go for it. I personally really like it. It could work really well with jeans, and an interesting t-shirt.

    I think it looks good with like a blue eyeliner, I only use color mascara when going out at night. I have that mascara and use it when I wear blue eyeliner and I dont have time to do eyeshadow with the works, so this is a great way to do up your eyes when your on a rush. I love it I get many compliements from ppl.:p

    I think it looks fine. Is it part of your individual look, though? If you lean more towards a conservative style of dress, its going to look a little jarring, but if your style is more like Electroclash/Raver, punk/emo/goth or even trendy pop (think Urban Decay), then it fits right in, and work it with a matching blue liner and shadow in contrasting color like pink or green or purple. A light, true blue would make an interesting look as well. Just a little gloss on the lips so they don't compete with the eyes.

    Please, please don't try to "tone it down" with a neutral shadow unless its a light grey, pink or yellow. Browns or beige just don't fit with a bold eyelash like like that

    i think it looks great! the color is lovely, and it looks great with your skin tone. i love colored mascaras. very fun. just be sure to wear it boldly and proudly, like riotkitty suggested.

    whenever i wear colored mascara, i always get complements, even from folks i would guess were too conservative to dig it. just remember that bold, funky eyes should go along with fun outfits, not necessarily a business suit. i like to wear the color so that it really pops, like red mascara with black eyeliner, which everyone seems to love. blue with green or violet is also very nice. (and violet eyeshadow is especially lovely with pretty brown eyes like yours.)

    have fun with it!
