Summer 2012 Beauty Trend: Colored Mascara

June 21, 2012 • Beauty, Fashion Blog, Trends

If memory serves I tried bright blue mascara in the 80’s. I can’t imagine it was a successful experiment. However, I have to admit, when I received a sample of M·A·C ‘Beth Ditto’ Zoom Lash Mascara in a bright blue (Blue Charge)…I was really excited to try it. What is going on? The next time you take a trip to the department store makeup counter or Sephora you might notice that black and brown mascara is so yesterday. There are now purples, greens and blues and burgundies along side the expected noir. In fact, colored mascaras are popping up everywhere. So go ahead and jazz up your eyelashes both day and night. I know I am having a blast with my new purple lashes!And blue lashes. Now I just need green! Here are our 10 picks for best colored mascaras:
