Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Color Mascara:

I love color mascaras and I have a purple and blue from another brand. When I saw the brown, I figured I try it for a more natural look. The color is great and I do like the brush, but this mascara gets allll over the place. It takes a really long time to dry so it smudges on my eye shadow. Also, no clue how, but it somehow gets on my arm and hands. This completely confuses me and I seriously question whether I actually know how to properely use mascara when I use this one. I love mascara and I never have this very odd issue with any other brand.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Color Mascara:

    I purchased both the purple and the blue versions of this mascara and I definitely prefer the purple. I love the way the color looks. It adds some extra flair to my look, but is subtle enough to wear to work without getting strange looks. I usually pair it with a purple version of the smoky eye look for some added pizazz.

    I've gotten loads of compliments.

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Color Mascara:

          I've been wanting to break away from black mascara and try a brown mascara for a while. Also needing some new eye shadow, I turned to NYX, who was having a BOGO 50% off sale. It's... okay? I'll still wear it, because I love the color and I think it looks really natural and lengthens well. But next time I'll look some something that's not mostly smudged under my eyes by the end of the day.

          Honestly not worth it

          Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Color Mascara:

          Ok, first off, the images of the different colors are misleading. There are different mascara spoolies for each color. I bought the pink color and the brush that it comes with is incredibly thin! I know that the thinner and longer brushes are supposed to enhance length, but this particular shape didn't do a great job of coating my lashes. The brush was really too thin to even touch the sides of the tube to scrape off extra product, so it didn't apply nicely. I also don't think that the color was pigmented enough, my lashes are blonde and very light so I was hoping the color would really pop, but they just looked like I got glue all over them.
          I'm sure the darker colors with a fuller brush would look nicer though, but I don't see myself buying any more of these.

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Color Mascara:

                I really like colored mascara as a way to brighten up my otherwise natural, subtle look.
                I am a huge fan of NYX! They make great products that are affordable. I've tried urban decay mascara, and for the price I paid, I didn't even notice that it was colored. It was disappointing, and expensive!
                The blue mascara from NYX is my favorite! It makes a statement, but the purple is more subtle and harder for me to notice.
                I got the blue mascara for my sister as a gift because I loved it so much! You won't be sorry for buying it if you like a more dramatic eye look! :)

                    Runs. Not worth 5 cents.
