Grad school really can do a number on one’s face. This morning I wanted a pop of color to wake up my eyes, and decided to finally reach for Maybelline’s Great Lash in Royal Blue
If you have been following this blog, you know that I AM NOT a fan of Great Lash. But for colored mascaras? It is surprisingly good. Colored mascaras are dramatic on their own, so you don’t really need a ton of volume or it would be overkill. The slightly watery formula of Great Lash and small brush also give you precision with colored formulas.
This is a little bit brighter than what I would classify as Royal Blue. But that is good! If I am buying a colored mascara, I want to see it!
Lovely shade. I’ve also heard that you can use colored mascara as temporary hair streakers. Maybe I will try it! It certainly is bright enough! And only $6!!
This is a really pretty accent, and I kept the rest of my makeup minimal. But look how bright it makes my eyes look? For once, I am digging Great Lash! Who would have thought?
Final Thoughts: For a night out or to shake up your routine, try this bright blue if you dare! The normally disappointing Great Lash formula works wonders for color!
Staying Power: 8/10
Total: 44/50 = B+ = Happy Panda!
Do you wear colored mascaras? Which ones are your favorites?
