In my quest for the ultimate mascara, I've had my eye on Givenchy's Phenomen'Eyes Effet Extension. It has a unique brush that differentiates it from many of the other department store brands. Givenchy's hi-tech brush extends individual lashes for eye widening effects with a precision designed spherical brush—adding volume with a no-time-to-waste quick dry formula for full blown fluttering drama. It is a bit pricey at $29.
One thing that intrigued me is the shade of violet that the forumla is available in. It is a limited-edition color and is named "Purple Impression". I have been seeing more and more shades of purple eye color for spring. I haven't yet delved in to the non-black mascaras, yet but I will be trying purple this spring when the weather warms up. This shade is dark enough not to look garish or costume-y as would a shade of blue. I plan to layer this over my regular shade of black mascara as well, for a subtle purple/black effect. What do you think of the Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Effet Extension in Purple Impression's? Will you try purple mascara this spring?
