Cobalt blue mascara and me go back a long way. LONG long way. It’s all I wore in the 80s, and I loved it. So when I saw the new Dior Addict It-Lash Mascara($32) came in a blue? MINE.
The brush is SPIKY and plastic. And kind of ouchy to be honest if you’re not careful. But it’s not too big to use, and you can get at all your lashes easily without making a mess. The rounded end you apparently can use to get at your inner lashes, but call me crazy-I’m not a fan of going at my eye with a spiky mascara wand straight on like that?? I poke myself most of the time using mascaras wands horizontally, so I think I’ll pass on THAT experience thanks very much.
Dior Addict It-Lash is a GORGEOUS cobalt blue mascara though! It’s not too bright, and just blue enough. And the colour covers lashes well without any patchiness. It lengthens and defines my lashes. I can keep piling on layers to build up length because the formula isn’t too dry. The spiky brush really takes care of any clumps too. No need to comb out your lashes after! It gives a nice clean, defined and feathery look to lashes.
In the 80s I’d wear some cobalt blue eyeliner and eyeshadow at the same time. Yeah, I know. I WAS COOL.
But now, I’m older and wiser so I like wearing Dior Addict It-Lash Mascara in blue on its own. And that’s perfect for me right now since I really hate wearing eyeshadows in the summer anyways. Everything just creases on me in the heat, so why bother? The blue mascara adds some colour to my face and stays put all day without worry.
Dior Addict It-Lash comes off easily with cleansing water too. To be honest, I think it’s a tad expensive, but it’s Dior. And at least it’ll last me the whole summer before I have to throw it out. I’ll use it a lot, so in the end I guess it’s worth it! I’ve tried drugstore blue mascaras in the past and never liked them much. This one I like, but don’t LOVE. Chanel’s Le Volume De Chanel Mascara in Bleu is my absolute favourite blue mascara out there. That one is amazing!
Have you seen the Dior Addict It-Lash colours yet? Will you try one? Are you a fan of coloured mascaras?
