Right.. i've been through Boots with fine tooth comb and cannot find a waterproof mascara that comes in brown, apart from a Maybeline one which looks like I'm not even wearing mascara when i put it on. Plus it's black/brown so looks just ordinary black - rubbish.

It needs to be waterproof coz I'm outside a lot.

This search has been prompted by the recent thread about wearing the opposite colour to your eyes to get a fab effect.

i have a Boots No 7 mascara in Brown and it's waterproof to boot! i agree very difficult to find just Brown mascara i have very long eyelashes and i only wear black on a night out as it just looks like i'mm wearing false lashes. Brown much better for slightly more natural look. Anyway it's in a blue (slithgtly metallic?) tube, can't remember exct name but def No. 7! hth.

Ooh... good suggestions so far. Is the Max Factor proper brown?

I went and bought a kohl pencil in brown the other day too, thinking it would make my eyes look bluer, but it just makes me look red-eyed sad
