Dior Addict It-Lash Mascara in Blue

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?

    I was totally like nope, not going back to my blue mascara loving days…then I saw it on you.
    Damn it.

  • So pretty! I used to wear blue mascaras often in summer when I used to fake-tan (yup, once upon a time..) 😉
    This one looks amazing on you. The color is quite subtle and even deep. Well, you’re a perfect spokesperson for any mascara, to be honest!

    • I’d PAY to see you in a fake tan LOL! It’s nice hey? Not TOO blue. Aww, thanks my friend! You are too sweet! xo

  • Ah, this really is pretty! The packaging is great and I love how it makes your lashes look! I was all about blue mascara back in the late ’90s (my teenage hippies days, haha), so I can really appreciate this more grown-up, chic version 🙂

    • Thanks Jennifer! It’s funny how what we did in our youth comes back and we can “Re-invent” it, hey?

  • Drugstore mascaras really are finicky so I’m sure trying to find a colored one that works well is really difficult. I’ve decided to make peace with spending more than I ever thought on mascara because it’s hard to find one that’s just right. I haven’t made it to Dior (or Chanel) prices yet…hopefully I can hold out 🙂 I love the blue on you!

    • They are! And the coloured ones are just NO. Thanks! The Chanel one is my HG Blue one. SO GOOD. And yeah, I know what you mean. If it works, then I pay!

  • Guppy

    That colour looks great on you! I was an iridescent purple liner and mascara girl in the 80’s as it went with my brown hair and eyes well.

  • Oh wow, LOOK AT THAT LENGTH!!! I got the pink one but I haven’t tried it out on its own. Got to do it when I’m home alone so that I don’t scare anybody LOL

  • rachlovespenguins

    I was convinced I only wanted the purple one but now I’m kinda wanting the blue as well. I’m hesitant to actually purchase either of them though, since I can’t figure out what ingredient(s) are at the root of my mascara woes. But I want pretty coloured lashes, darn it! *stomps feet*

    • I know what you’re talking about! This one hasn’t bugged me though, so that’s good! I think it is mascara that bugs my eyes as well-not shadows. I also bought the Dior Iconic Overcurl and it’s ok too so far-no hurt! I want the purple too now. And the pink. HALP.

      • rachlovespenguins

        There is no help for us. We’re too far gone. lol
        You’ve heard what they say about really wanting and accepting recovery, right? No way, we don’t want that. We want the mascara! 😛

      • rachlovespenguins

        It’s official, you’ve done it. I bought a tube. And I even went blue instead of purple!

      • LOL hahaha. Do you like it?

      • rachlovespenguins

        I’ll find out in a couple of days. Mr UPS man hasn’t given up the goods yet, hahaha. I love that Nordies ships free, but dang are they slow about it.

      • Yeah, that sucks. But FREE is always good I say!

  • Gorgeous gorgeous! I love it! I kind of want it…but I’m not sure. I think it’ll probably just smudge like nuts on me – all the non-tubing ones do!

    • It’s actually pretty stay put proof! I bought it in Anaheim last week and wore it Disneyland and it was 88F!

  • I love how it looks so light and feathery!! I just wish it came in a forest green or something similar–that is more of my color, but that blue looks amazing on you!!

    • Thanks Margo! Yeah, I’m surprised there’s no green too. I would have totally gone for that!

  • That mascara really brightens up the eyes – reminds me too that I need to email you about all things ’80’s. Will do It soon! :))

  • Well, if you’ll use it a lot it’s worth the price, right. You actually wear blue very well.

  • Wow, what a gorgeous mascara, I love it – I would love it in a deep moss green to complement my eye colour.

    Gems x

  • Totally rad again!

  • I bet you ROCKED the ’80s, Trakee 😀

  • Gaelle

    Can’t say I’ve ever worn blue mascara, purple is as crazy as I went!Love how it makes the white of your eyes whiter. I know it sounds weitd but it’s a compliment

  • Toya

    I love the effect this is giving Tracy! So pretty and feathery. Although I think a lot of that has to do with your STUPENDOUS lashes! I used to LOVE wearing blue mascara (I always wore it alone) but I haven’t done so since high school. Maybe I should revisit that for old times sake??

    • Thanks Toya! DO IT! I think you should get the pink one! It would look AMAZING on you. Even just on the bottom lashes. GORGEOUS.

  • Liz

    Oh man, that looks good. I kind of want to try but don’t think that I’ll bother with my sad lil lash situation. Enjoy it!

  • Lily

    OMG so cool! I tried some coloured mascaras before, but I can’t make them show on my lashes. They’re either sucky or my lashes are darn stubborn!

  • You know what I like about this mascara. It brightens up your eyes with a hint of color without being too extravagant. It’s just right. 🙂

  • makeupmagpieblog

    Your lashes are amazing! I wore cobalt blue (and sometimes purple) mascara in the 80s too! I think Cover Girl was the brand I used back in the day. Loved it then and still do 🙂

    • Thank you! I wished the Covergirl one was here! But it’s not for some reason grrrr.

  • Awww, that’s too bad. Yes, try the Chanel one. Let me know if it works for you!

  • Yay!

  • In my next life, I hope I am blessed with gorgeous natural wispy Tracy lashes! OMGorgeous. And then when you toss on a blue mascara, it’s pretty much perfection. Love this look! I’m not big on eyeshadow in the summer, either! My palettes don’t even remember who I am any more!

    Hi, it looks really lovely. Could you tell me why you prefer the the Chanel one in blue? I want to get a blue mascara for summer and can’t decide between the Dior and Chanel? Does Chanel Le Volume in blue actually look blue on the lashes or does it look more black? Thanks.

    • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

      The Chanel one gives more volume which I like. Hmmmm, as I recall I think it’s a bit darker of a blue than this Dior one.
