The Perfect Mascara To Wear With Your Favorite Shade of Crimson

Mascara Inky Six_0001Being that I don’t wear a lot of eye makeup, I’m a firm believer in colored mascara.  Recently I’ve been wearing Butter London’s New Inky Six, a gorgeous cornflower blue shimmer that works beautifully with my signature red lip.

Butter London has a New makeup collection with tantalizing shades that will add that pop of color to your summer beauty regimen.

With shades like Jaded Jack, Pistol Pink, Indigo Punk, Brown Sugar and Union Jack Black, you’re going to want them all.

The mascara is gel-based and if you find yourself between salon visits you can conceal your grey with Union Jack Black or Brown Sugar talking about double-duty beauty.

The mascara is long wearing, there is no flaking and your lashes are bigger, bolder and voluptuous.

Here’s to gorgeous lashes this summer!
