Beauty Roadtest: A Black & Blue Physicians Formula Mascara That Looks Cool, Not Crazy
March 3, 2010
I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of colored mascara, but never wanted to commit to an entire tube of the stuff. After all, it’s not like I’ll wear blue mascara to work, right? But Physicans Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Mascara Duo ($10.95) is perfect for beauty commitment phobes like me. With black mascara on one end, and a colored mascara (green, purple, pink, and blue) on the other, you get to to mix up your beauty routine without spending a lot. The black mascara lengthened my lashes, and the blue color had an eye-popping effect without being jarring. Both ends have a jumbo brush that makes application easy, and the mascara didn’t wear off quickly. Free of parabens, fibers, oils, and fragrances, even contact lens wearers like me, can use it without those annoying flakes. I’m sold–and I might even wear some to work tomorrow.
