Lift those lashes sky-high with a pop of colour.
When it comes to mascara, do you often find yourself opting for the basic black and brown? Sometimes, you just have to unleash your creative side and step out of your comfort zone. Sure, maybe you’ve tried a bold red lipstick for a change, but why not wear a brightly-hued coloured mascara to step up your makeup game?
Coloured mascaras are back, again, for quite a while now, and it’s time to incorporate this trend into your beauty routine. There are many beauty trends from the 1980s that have made a comeback, but this one is surely an Instagram-worthy look for all millennials.
At times, we are low-key afraid to try on new colours because we are too hesitant to try new things. Whether you are opting for neutral office wear or you’re in the mood for a no-makeup day, this bold pop of colour can simply add that kick to your look. Why not temporarily give your black and brown mascaras a break, and try on something new? Even the most natural eye looks need to be taken up a notch this season. We’ve rounded up some of the most exotic, cool coloured mascaras that you could pull off effortlessly.

Going beyond the OG colours, this NYX Worth The Hype Volumizing and Lengthening mascara brings a spunk into our lives with all four shades. From the office cocktail to casual brunching on weekends, this mascara is a breeze to apply. Feeling purple today? Brush your eyelashes with some midnight purple fantasy. Or, opt for brown, blue, or the classic black. Best part? It doesn’t clump and holds the curls just right. We must say it’s worth the hype.
Given that it’s the first blue mascara from this much-loved American cosmetic brand, we couldn’t miss out on their royal blue mascara that has been in demand since it launched. Whether you’re prepping for a daytime look or need to glam up for a starry night, this pop of colour just brings out the wild fashionista within you. This old-school Royal Blue Mascara is a tried-and-tested one that can never go wrong, and it’s lash-doubling formula just glides on to build great looking lashes.
For a more bold look, Loreal’s Voluminous Original Washable Bold Eye Mascara brings a whole new slay to the floor. From deep forest green to deep burgundy and back to cobalt blue, there is a lot to experiment with your look. This uniquely formulated mascara resists clumping so that the lashes are soft and yet built up to 5 times to their natural thickness. Meanwhile, the pantheon and ceramide-R protects the condition of the lashes so fret not about damaging those sensitive lashes. We are splurging into a new bold look for the day, how about you?
Our cult-favourite Dior Diorshow Mascara is all about making us feel like a diva walking onto that Dior runway show. The buildable volume for complete thick lashes with a lash-extension effect also curls up our eyelashes the way we love. The iconic mascara is not only enriched with microfibres and silk proteins but is infused with rose essence that keeps your lashes in great condition. The catwalk-inspired cosmetic in blue is our new favourite for the season.
This one is absolutely worth having for everyday wear. YSL’s Mascara Vinyl Couture is quite the revolutionary high-impact liquid lash colour that is deeply saturated and shiny. Fashionable yet so sophisticated, this one is for fashionistas who are always looking for making statements with their look. It gives you tons of volume, length, and some very tipsy curls.
When it comes to this iconic brand, we can’t help but take our glamour game up a notch. Chanel Le Volume De Chanel Mascara comes in four different colours: Noir, Ecorces, Blue Night, and Character. We are all down to embrace the wide-open-eyes look with Character, as it not only adds volume from the very first stroke but is quite striking with its intense colour. We love that it comes with the Chanel-exclusive ‘Snowflakes’ brush that combines long and short bristles for an extreme lash effect.
