Tried Tuesday: butter LONDON Wink Colour Mascara

bl-thumbMascara posts are coming thick and fast here at the moment, mainly because I’ve got so many in my big box of things. Today’s one is a little different though. It’s not your standard blacker than black mascara with superblack pigments that prevent light from escaping. Today, for Tried Tuesday, I’m giving a butter LONDON Wink Colour Mascara in Inky Six a whirl.

I actually love the cardboard packaging tube the mascara comes in. It’s sleek black exterior is nice, but it’s inside the box that is gorgeous, with trees and flowers and a bird wearing a crown and everything. One thing does concern me though. It states on the packaging “For External Use Only”. Yes, read that again, “For EXTERNAL Use Only” Has someone actually tried using it internally? Is that actually a thing? I could ask Google, but yeah, I’m not going to do that. Oh and Google, I don’t want people searching for that and finding me, okay.


Right, on to the product. It’s blue. Not your suave, sophisticated, subtle and understated elegant blue. This is a screaming, over the top, dance around wearing Dobby’s tea cosy noticeable bright BLUE! I mean, look at it. Fans of the standard black mascara I mentioned earlier need not apply. But, being the intrepid beauty blogger I claim to be, I pressed on and actually opened it.


The wand is an oval-ish shape. It bulges in the middle and tapers off at either end. It is also very dense and carries quite a bit of product. Possibly too much, as a lot gets deposited around the top of the tube when you remove the wand. Again you can see just how blue this is.


Finally, here it is on my eyes. The eye on the left has no makeup. Te eye on the right – top lashes have 2 coats, bottom lashes have 1 coat. As you see, it does a brilliant job on the lashes, and the colour really does pop. Unfortunately, it leaves me with a problem. Just what can I wear a colour like that for, outside of a festival? Answers on the back of a postcard, or in a comment please!
