Turquoise organic eye pencil, midnight blue mascara, purple or blue lipstick… not sure what to think of these blue products? Or how to apply them?
We’re here to help: read our Guerlain makeup professional interview, find out if blue lipstick is your thing, discover our catwalk press review about blue makeup and have fun with the special blue trends in the fashion and beauty world you might follow (or not).
1 – Certified Organic Eye Pencil, Turquoise or Sapphire Blue, by INIKA
INIKA is a 100% natural beauty brand using certified organic labels, ‘focused on creating the best performing cosmetics made with only the finest, most natural ingredients’.
2 – Bora-Bora, Double Ego Dual Ended Eyeliner from Pür Minerals
‘A multi-tasking must-have, the eyeliner offers precision and control so you can create a look as natural or dramatic as desired’. Good news: Pür Minerals does NOT test products on animals.
3 – Blue Velvet Waterproof Eyeliner, by Daniel Sandler
Hard-wearing, long-lasting, this reliable weapon of mass destruction will have your back day and night: ‘Daniel Sandler Blue Velvet Waterproof Eyeliner feels great to apply, thanks to its high content of silicone. Blue Velvet is absolutely waterproof, super long-wearing and extraordinarily soft, combining rich colour with out-of-this-world coverage and no smudging.’
4 – Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer, Blue Jean, CHANEL
Blue Jean = Denim = the most democratic blue of all, great with black, brown, green and blue eyes. No discrimination. The Crayon Yeux Precision comes with a latex tip for blending and designing your own smocky eyes in less than a minute. ‘Soft eye contour crayon outlines rapidly and emphasises dramatically. Can be used to draw a fine, matt line, or blended for a smudged shadow.’
5 – New i – colour, Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow, CID Cosmetics
For an intense blue look, apply generously with a smooth synthetic brush (NOT one made of natural hair). ‘Cobalt is perfect for creating both sheer and striking eyes. The cream shadow has a lightweight, mousse-like texture that glides onto your lids to give blendable coverage that lasts all day.’
6 – Volumising Mascara, Midnight Blue from Bellapierre Cosmetics
Check list: Covers individual lashes (check). Long lasting finish (check). Elongates the lashes (check). ‘Wiggle the wand at the root of the lashes to separate and coat the lashes at the lash line. Use the point of the brush to add length and ensure that every last lash is coated.’
7 – Whoopee Spot – Lipstick Queen by All That Jazz
This incredible purple lipstick is rich in algomega, omega 3, jojoba oil and Lady’s Thistle. A warning from All That Jazz: ‘Not suitable for shrinking violets, these decadent lipsticks come housed in glittering, slate grey packaging (like fireworks exploding over one of Jay Gatsby’s parties), while the glimmering bullets are brimming with hydrating and protective actives to leave lips smooth, supple and kissably soft.’
8 – Sinful Blue, Envy Blue, Immortal Purple or Betrayal Purple Wicked lippies by NYX
Ain’t that wicked: Sinful, Envy, Immortal or Betrayal? Two blue and two purple shades await those who look for an intensely coloured lipstick. Not the glimmering kind, the covering kind: ‘Take a walk on the wicked side with our jewel-toned lippies available in 12 shimmering shades. Velvety smooth with a dazzling metallic finish these richly pigmented lipsticks will leave your lips with the ultimate spellbinding look.’
