I kind of remember colored mascara being popular right when I first realized makeup was a thing, maybe ten years ago? And then it kind of faded away, except for with one of my cousin, who always seems to wear blue mascara (it looks good, FYI). But now it's back!
The L'Oreal Miss Manga Voluminous Mascara Color Pop has finally appeared here in the States. I know these have been around overseas for a little while, and I was excited to try them when I spotted 'em in my Walgreens since I love the black version of this mascara. I picked up Purple Pop, to set off my green eyes, and Teal Craze because I was feeling a little wild. There's also a cobalt blue color, but I figured I didn't need two different blue mascaras. I'm loving Purple Pop, it goes on my very dark eyelashes pretty vibrantly and dries down to a subtle purple that shows off the green in my eyes without looking totally crazy during the day. I haven't given the blue a whirl yet, but from what I've heard, it's the best of the bunch. These suckers say they're limited edition, although I'm hoping they're added to the permanent range after all.
A dishonorable mention goes to the Scandaleyes Mascara by Kate Moss in Eye Rock Emerald. This was so disappointing! The color didn't show up on my eyelashes at all, and the formula was so much drier than the regular Scandaleyes that it didn't even give my lashes any oopmph. Sorry, Rimmel, this one is definitely a miss for me.
