Wanted to get your recommendations on colored mascara. I am looking for a burgandy color because I saw this great look in one of the Kevyn Aucoin books and I want to try it. My eyes are rather sensitive so I want something that doesn't crumble and that stays on all day. I really want it to make my eyes pop!
Any recommendations?

Thanks girls!

Marisol, if you have access to Za, they make a great waterproof mascara that comes in a variety of colors. I love the green & purple, but they make one called rose which is a dark pinkish red/light maroon. If you can't find it, LMK & I'll send you one.

I use colored mascara often. A couple of my favs are Tony & Tina and Sugar. Sugar has nice colors but I cant recall if they have burgandy. T&T's are nice and I've had no problems w/smudging or crumbling. Also, Rocket City has a nice burgandy which is to die for!! HTH's

I have never heard of Za. I just looked at Sephora & they dont sell that brand. Do you know what store you may have bought it at?

Thanks Tracey! Do you know where they sell Rocket City? I have never heard of that brand before and would like to look at it before buying it.

Jess & I get it @ Longs Drugs for about $7-8. I know that LD is a CA-based company, but I don't know if you have one near you. Za is distributed here in Hawaii by Shiseido, but you can check them out @ www.za-ny.com.

Also check out YSL Faux Cils. IIRC, they make a maroon shade, but bear in mind that it's about $24.


ETA: Also look into Avon. I think they have some maroon/burgandy shades also.

Kevyn Aucoin has a Curling Magic Black Red burgandy mascara, probably where this look came from! Burgandy looks awesome on light haired and blue eyed people, or brown haired.

oh yeah and his wears for like 14hrs and doesn't smudge.

I'm sorry Marisol, I just checked Sephora and Rocket City's website. I guess I spoke too soon. Neither one of them carry the mascara anymore. Sephora dropped the line altogether and RC is only selling brown and black. That sucks!! I'm sorry. I should've checked first.

If you like the KA brand, you can also order online via beauty.com. Free shipping after $49 & no tax!
Plus you can combine your order w/stuff from drugstore.com & get in-store rebates & a 6% rebate through ebates.

I've always wanted to try some of today's colored mascaras. The electric blues of the 80's didn't show up on me. Have the formulas really evolved so that those with dark lashes can use them and the colors can actually be seen? I've even seen mascara duos with black on one end and a color on the other, meant to be worn on the tips only. But how can a color show up if it's applied over black?


Tracey, what colors are your favorite to bring out brown eyes?

Jessica, go for it and try some of them out!! They're great! The colors do show up well - I've guess they've come a long way w/the various formulas. I wear so many different colors of mascara and have had no problem w/them showing.

My fav for making my eyes stand out is green. I wear the one by Rocket City called Nitrous (dont know what I'm gonna do now that they no longer sell it
). Its not a loud color... .more like a forest green and when it is on my naturally black lashes, it comes out looking really amazing. I love what it does for my 'eye appeal'

i tried clinique's colored mascara (in blue) and it sucked! nothing showed up. my sis said she saw it in the sun, but i don't really think it's worth $10+ if it only shows in the sun. i wouldn't try their colored mascaras.

they sell rocket city at tj maxx now! they used to sell it at sephora.
