      Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Color Mascara:

      I long wanted the pear green shade and picked it up on sale.

      It's a pretty noticable shade, yet subtle, if you use it lightly.

      It adds length and volume and I use it mainly on my lower lashes for a bit of quirky contrast. Used on the top lashes, they need to be curled, otherwise it looks like my lashes were involved in a pale green flour accident. So I pretty much avoid using it on the top lashes.

      It's fun as a bit of accent and offers good staying power. I've even applied the green as a base and added black mascara over it and it has good volume that way.

      I like the skinny brush, too. My only real problem is this is a bit hard to remove. I use Body Shop chamomile oil and butter to clean off eye makeup normally, and it works like a champ, but this doesn't come off as easily with the Body Shop cleanser. One night I didn't get it all off and still had bits of the pear green mascara on my lower lashes the following morning.

      Invisible masquara

      Product is really translucent. Barely shows at all on lashes... I might try with a white masquara primer underneath, but honestly you can barely tell there's anything on your lashes.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Color Mascara:

        I absolutely LOVE the blue and purple shades of this mascara. They don't clump or flake or make my lashes look like big goopy globs as every other plain black mascara I've ever tried has. One or two coats of purple or blue makes my eyes pop without the raccoon-eye problem black mascaras give me.

        Unfortunately, I tried the pink perfect shade recently and it was actually terrible. I'm not sure if the formula was changed for all the mascaras or just the new ones after the original three (blue, purple and brown) seeing as I haven't purchased those since the new colors were released, but the pink was super paint smelling and so liquidy that it didn't do anything to my lashes at all except run off them.

        I absolutely reccommend the original blue and purple shades of this mascara, but I would be wary of the others. I haven't tried any of the other shades, but I absolutely love Nyx and will probably give the other shades a try after the initial let-down of the Pink Perfect shade wears off (and I run out of my current supply of blue and purple!)

            I got Mint Julep, which is such a cool mascara color and is very pigmented. My only qualm I have is that it's nearly impossible to remove. I've tried makeup remover, face wash.. everything, but it was glued to my lashes. It lasted around 3 days of regular face washing and showering until I didn't notice it anymore. Glad I only got one to try it.. will not be purchasing other colors. Not worth it.

              I have this mascara in coral and I love the color! I wish the brush added length or volume because it literally just adds color to the lashes. The color is great though especially for the summer months to add some fun to your look.

              I got mint julep. I used this product to help blend my eyebrows into a look I was doing. I love it!! It has great color and stayed in place. It was a little thick but not to bad. My only complaint is that it smells like paint besides that another great product Nyx!!

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Color Mascara:

              I wanted to try color mascara since it's the trend now. Purple is my favorite color so I decided on NYX in purple. If you're looking for a bold, obvious color this is not for you. It can be seen in the light, once your outside. I boosted my look a little with a thin line of Urban Decay "Vice" on my top lid. The brush does distribute the product, however sometimes a little extra so I use a comb to avoid clumps and to separate. It serves the purpose. I'm happy.

              This is great if you're looking for an unique look. It doesn't clump or run. Usually I can just use a cleansing wipe to remove makeup but not with this. I have to use multiple qtips and eye makeup remover.
