Brown mascara - the pointless bastard of the make up world.

I bought it by mistake.

My eyelashes (moribund at the best of times) now look like spiders legs.

What with the coppery brown eyeshadow I put on (another bad choice) I look like I have mud pies flung in my face.

Brown. Brahn . Like a Just 17 makeup tutorial from 1993.

My eyes are green and so i think i look better with brown mascara and smudgy brown liner.

Getorf..I knew this would be you.

It wasn't No 7 " the Per Una " of the cosmetic world? That still makes me laugh [ grin]

Bobbi Brown won't even sell brown mascara. I use their black but with brown liner for day (am blonde and pale).

I think brown eyeliner may actually be my make up essential even before concealer shock

I've never tried brown, to many years of black eyelines and mascara means I didn't even realise there was an option. But, what is this purple mascara that you are on about? I might like to try that....so long as it isn't eighties styleee.

I wear brown for daytime. If I wear black I look like I'm advertising for 'business'. Black is fine in the evening.

By the way Bobbi Brown also says (or used to say - perhaps she's been enlightened since) that everyone has yellow toned skin. Well Bobbi, maybe that's why I never could get any of your foundations to work without looking jaundiced.

Nowt wrong with brown mascara and eyeliner for me.
Pale ash blonde going on white with scandinaviany sallow gold skin and blue-grey eyes. Also use light brown eyebrow pencil.
Black makes me look like a 1940s cheap starlet, especially during the day.
And lippy just makes it worse.
Of course as I live in darkest Wales most everyone else is a pasty celt with very dark hair so I'm a bit of an odd one out.
