I have never fancied myself a colorful mascara kind of girl. Despite how many reputable makeup artists have used them at lust-worthy fashion shows, there was always a little something about bright blue mascara that said to me “junior high schooler hitting the mall.” So I felt like I was throwing caution to the wind when I tried Le Métier de Beauté’s Anamorphic Lash Mascara in “Midnight Blue.” Why not? Their formula is non-clumping and feather-light. And it didn’t look too blue.
Leave it to the French pros to take what could veer into tackiness and make it divine! For raven-haired snobs like myself, this deep, dark, almost-black blue is genius. The hint of indigo actually makes your lashes look darker; layered over your ebony mascara, and you get eyes that truly pop. I never thought I would say this, but once you go blue you might never go back to plain, old black! At Nordstrom for $34.
