When I opened up my post from Black|Up to see this Volumizing and Lengthening mascara in Bleu, I was very excited! I’m always on the hunt for a good mascara and it’s been a long time since I have used a coloured one.
I know someone who wears a very, very natural look but her mascara is always blue. The blue really makes her brown eyes pop. When I saw this, I wanted to try it for myself and then Black|Up gave me the perfect excuse. I want my eyes to pop too!
I knew what was inside because of the image on the packaging. That’s really helpful so you don’t leave the shop with the wrong shade which I have done a couple of time. Despite that, when I first opened the mascara, I was taken aback by just how bright it was. Could I really wear in the daytime or to work? Would I look too eighties? It is a bold, bright blue in the tube which comes up well on my black lashes.
One coat works well for a flash of blue so for me I had blue tinted black lashes. That wasn’t good enough for me. I wanted high impact bright blue lashes which I got with two coats. The colour really did make my brown eyes pop and I found it was easy to wear in the daytime. It actually makes a good alternative to black.
The brush is a traditional bristle brush with different length bristles to grip all of the lashes. The mascara performed as promised; it added length and volume. It lasts all day without flaking and is comfortable to wear.
The Black|Up Volumizing and Lengthening Mascara in Bleu is a good all-round product and the blue colour makes it just a little bit more special. I got the pop I wanted! Can we have some more colours please? I would love it in a rich, amethyst purple!
