yay or nay: plum mascara

hello my lovelies!

i have been seeing more and more coloured mascaras on the high street recently and wanted to try some out! I bought the collection 2000 collagen curl mascara a while ago by accident because back then i thought all mascaras i picked up were going to be either brown or black.. obviously not ha ha! i was a bit miffed when i got home and realised id picked up a plum mascara instead of black, and never even tried it until i saw sam and nic from pixiwoo mention an aubergine coloured mascara and was intrigued by the whole idea of having different coloured lashes! So i revisited this product and thought i'd try it out again to see if i had changed my mind on the idea!



as you can see, on the wand it doesn't look too plummy, it just looks black, but swatched you can see the plummy-ness of it! I think this is a really nice colour to have as a mascara - its not too outrageous-y or bright, but not the normal black/brown.

So, what does it look like on?



on these pictures, it looks incredibly disappointing and just like normal mascara, which it does in real life too.. UNTIL you catch it in a different light and really get the warmth and deep plummy-ness of it! Ive had many compliments when wearing this, and paired with the right eyeliner/eyeshadow it can look so pretty! and im hoping to try more different coloured mascaras!

so that is my verdict on plum mascaras, what's yours?

thank you for reading,

Olivia
