It’s been a hot minute since I’ve worn a mascara other than black but since coming across these Limecrime Astronomical mascaras that’s all about to change. This mascara comes in dazzling blue, soft lavender, bright green and black.
Way back way, back in the day when I used to work on beauty counters circa 2000, I used to bloody LOVE a coloured mascara. I remember YSL were pretty much the only brand who did them and I used to wear both the purple and bright blue and think I was the mutt’s nuts. It’s also a really clever way of having a flash of colour and looking a little ‘done’ with minimal effort.
The Limecrime mascaras are a vegan formula, that is both volumising and buildable. It has a really creamy and lightweight formula that seems to be the ‘in’ thing at the moment with mascaras so it’s feels relatively weightless in the lashes.
The fluttery fibre brush separates each lash, coating them with a burst of colour formula to add definition and drama. It is easy to capture the smaller, wispier corner lashes too without smudging or smearing! I actually really love the green which i wasn’t sure I would. As with any coloured mascara, they can be worn solo but I like to layer them over the black as this gives a nice base and can really emphasis the colour (like a primer almost).
