Treands are great, but anybody who has incriminating pictures of themselves from the '80's knows that trends don't always stick around. Colored mascaras have come in and out of fashion for years now, but given the short shelf life of mascara, it's not like you can keep it until it comes back around like you could with a great pair of boots. I've never been one who's scared to try makeup trends, especially when they involve color, but I am hesitant to spend a lot of money on a trend that I'm not sure of.
Leave it to our friends at Maybelline to help us out with the whole colored mascara trend with their limited-edition Great Lash shades available this August. At a whopping $6.49 suggested retail, there's nothing to be scared of. At that price you can try shades that you would never have dreamt of before. (That being said, the colors are totally wearable and you're not going to look like a crazy person, no matter which shade you pick).
