Kiko Cosmetics’ Smart Colour Mascara collection

I’ve long kept an eye out for colored mascara that provides a strong tint rather than a bold color; and a few of the shades in this collection meet that requirement. They lengthen a little, and define, but they do not add volume, and I had to use multiple coats to see the color much. They are also not waterproof - so I have to use a waterproofing top coat. Despite the downsides, I do love these mascaras, and I have almost every color. (I didn’t bother with black.)

Two coats of medium-deep red mascara on bare, uncurled lashes - photo taken looking directly at the eye and face. Two coats of deep purple mascara on bare, uncurled lashes - photo taken looking directly at the eye and face. Two coats of dark blue mascara on bare, uncurled lashes - photo taken looking directly at the eye and face. Two coats of dark grey mascara on bare, uncurled lashes - photo taken looking directly at the eye and face. Two coats of dark brown mascara on bare, uncurled lashes - photo taken looking directly at the eye and face.

I think that these replaced the Super Colour mascaras, which were more saturated and slightly brighter shades. While I completely missed out on those, I honestly think that these Super Colour mascaras will get more use from me, since it’s easier to “get away with” wearing them in office environments. Currently there are two “brighter” colors in the lineup, and one is going to be discontinued soon, so if you’re wanting brighter mascaras, grab Electric Blue and Emerald soon.

  • Metallic Purple
