I decided to take a break from my usual black mascara to give the hot 90’s blue mascara trend a shot. It’s fun, bold, and vibrant, and it has definitely made a comeback (even on international runways) – so I thought, why not? Blue flatters all eye colors, and I guarantee that everyone will notice your fabulous lashes. I tried various shades of the blue mascara, and these are my favorites. If you want to try something that’s beyond the usual, you will love these!

Benefit They’re Real! Mascara Review
This is a gorgeous dark shade of blue. I love the wand and packaging of this Benefit mascara – the wand is made of rubber and has got spiky bristles that separate and coat each lash with the product. Its formula is neither too wet nor too dry, and two coats gave my lashes a nice, intense color. What impressed me most is its incredible staying power – never did it smear or flake – and if you’re going to be caught up in the rain, you don’t need to worry about this running down your face!
This dark shade is great for those of you all with lighter eyes and can be worn even on a boring weekday to brighten up your look (it’s quite a subtle shade).

Yves Saint Laurent The Shock Volumizing Mascara Review
Just like its shade name suggests (Blue Underground), this is a deeper shade of blue that is too darn pretty! Its wand is bliss – the shorter bristles coat and separates my lashes with much ease. I wore it on the hottest days, and it did not budge, smear or flake. It also holds my curl all day long.
If you’re looking for a subtle blue – this is it. It would stand out more on fair skin tones as opposed to darker skin tones as it’s not a very poppy blue. However, I do feel that this shade will look pretty on both light and dark eyes.
- Very pigmented
- Applies evenly and smoothly
- Coats and separates lashes well
- Does not smudge
- Not extremely volumizing or lengthening
NYX Color Mascara In Blue Review
A must-try blue drugstore mascara? This is it! It’s a bright, electric blue that will add just the right amount of drama and color to your lashes. I like its formula – it’s so easy to use, and it coats my dark black lashes with enough color to last the day. It did not flake or clump, and neither did it weigh down my lashes – which is a problem I face with a lot of mascaras. I was highly impressed with its dark color pigment that just refused to come off – only an oil-based makeup remover did the trick!
This color will look fabulous on dark and light eyes. Also, it’s a quite universal shade that will flatter all skin tones (especially medium to dark skin)!
- Adds loaded volume and length to your lashes
- Super pigmented color
- Suitable for contact lens wearers
- Dries out quickly
Maybelline New York Volum’ Express The Colossal Big Shot Mascara X In Boomin’ In Blue Review
This one’s another of my most adored drugstore mascaras, and I’ll tell you why! It’s extremely pigmented, it stays on all day long, and the wand is perhaps my favorite. It separates my lashes and coats each individual lash beautifully. Shayla Mitchell collaborated with Maybelline, and this mascara was born. The color is a cool blue tint that really brings out my eye color and makes my whole eye makeup look so bold.
If you have blonde eyelashes, this will be an ideal choice for a more poppy, out-there effect. However, you can enhance its effect by applying a white primer before throwing in this mascara.
- Instantly volumizes and lengthens your lashes
- Buildable color
- Does not weigh down your lashes
- Hard to take off
Covergirl Katy Kat Eye Mascara In Perry Blue Review
This mascara created by Katy Perry and Covergirl is again such a blessing in the drugstore arena. Its blue helps make the whites of your eyes appear brighter – so on the days you wake up to tired-looking eyes, you can throw in some of this poppy blue shade mascara to get you through the day. I need to specially mention how this did not disappoint me on a hot summer day – it just did not budge.
This shade of blue tends to pop out more on fairer skin tones and grey or green eyes.
- A hypoallergenic formula which is great for sensitive eyes
- Volumizes and lengthens lashes
- Contains antioxidants and vitamins A & E
- Washes off easily
Beautify Beauties Easy On The Eyes Sensitive Eye Mascara In Navy Review
This is a navy blue shade of mascara that I am so fond of! Its formula is very pigmented, and the color is buildable – so you can do a subtle or a more dramatic look, as per your preference. This mascara’s a holy grail product for those with really sensitive eyes as it’s made of very gentle ingredients, is non-irritating, and is also fragrance-free. Its flexible wand helped me define my lashes with much ease and flexibility. Also, if you wear contact lenses, this is great as it won’t smudge or budge.
The navy blue color will look gorgeous on every eye color and will especially flatter fairer skin tones.
- Holds a curl well
- Bright and pigmented
- Ultra-thickening formula
- Applies evenly and smoothly
MAC False Lashes In Blue Charge Review
This shade of blue is definitely worth trying if you’re curious about colored mascara. It’s a bright blue that stands out and adds so much drama to your makeup. It provides a lot of volume and length, which left me quite impressed. It shows up even on dark lashes like mine, but if you want to make the color more noticeable, you can wear a white mascara primer.
This color will look great on all eye colors and skin tones. It makes for a great day look as well as a fancy evening look.
- Defines and separates lashes
- Lashes don’t look stiff or spidery
- Applies evenly and smoothly
- Rich color and pigment
Chanel Le Volume De Chanel Mascara In 70 Blue Night Review
Blue Night by Chanel comes in a classy, sleek packaging that stole my heart. It has a really convenient wand that applies the product well, coating each lash while separating them. This is an intense dark blue that looks really pretty. However, I wasn’t quite impressed by its ability to provide length and volume – it did a mediocre job on this front. I do like the way it feels on my lashes – light and supple.
This color will pop out more on lighter eyelashes, but if you want to intensify its effect, you can use a white primer underneath. This is a good option for any occasion!
- Volumizing and lengthening
- Separates and builds every lash
- Does not clump
- Easy to use the wand
- Dries out quickly
L’Oreal Voluminous Original Mascara In Cobalt Blue Review
This is a royal blue, and I’ve received compliments every time I wore this. I like its formula that resists clumping and keeps my lashes soft. Also, it does add a lot of volume and length to my lashes. Another factor that impressed me is its ingredient list – it contains Panthenol and Ceramide-R to condition and nourish lashes.
This shade will look great even on darker eyes and skin tones. It makes a great shade for summer for the right amount of oomph!
- Easy-glide brush
- Provides clump-free volume
- Wax-free formula
- Not buildable enough
Maybelline New York Snapscara Washable Mascara in 330 Washable Deja Blue Review
The Snapscara glides on effortlessly – in a snap – and is easy to take off. It gives you clump-free length and volume in a single swipe. I love that it is washable, so all I need is warm water or makeup cleanser, and it lifts right off. The wax-free formula is highly pigmented and delivers super-saturated lashes with pure color intensity.
- Quick-drying formula
- No clumping or flaking
- May irritate sensitive eyes
Golden Rose Perfect Lashes Mascara in Blue Review
The Golden Rose Perfect Lashes Mascara offers a vivid blue shade that is not for the faint of heart. But if you are willing to experiment with a bold eye makeup look, this mascara is perfect for you! It has a rich and smooth formula that doesn’t clump, flake, or smudge as long as you are wearing it. It dries quickly and lends your eyelashes stunning volume and separation.
- Adds volume and definition
- No flaking
- May clump a little
Covergirl Exhibitionist Mascara in True Blue Review
The Covergirl Exhibitionist Mascara is available in several shades, but the True Blue truly steals the show. It is a volumizing mascara that glides smoothly on your lashes and leaves them looking thick and bold. A single coat is all you need for dramatic length and definition. It does not flake or smudge, and your lashes stay soft and gorgeous throughout!
P.S. I have noticed that when applied over a base of mascara primer, it adds an extra boost of volume.

How To Wear Blue Mascara? – Quick Tips
Now that you have a dozen options to choose from, let me give you a few tips on wearing it the right way (to add charm and volume to your gorgeous lashes). If you aren’t sure the trend is for you, read on!
- If you’re going to go in with blue mascara, keep the rest of your makeup neutral, especially your lips, to balance the look. A “barely-there” makeup look is an ideal companion to be paired with colored mascara.
- You can add a dust of pale nude or peach eyeshadow to make the blue pop even more.
- For a more intense look, makeup artists suggest applying mascara primer before you go in with your colored mascara to prep and then add two coats of your blue mascara.
- If you want to keep it subtle, then wear the blue mascara and then layer it with your usual black. Swipe on your traditional black formula and add a coat or two of the color for just a hint.
Blue mascara is a fun tool to add to your makeup kit, and even if you don’t wear it on the regular, you’ll like having it there to give your eye makeup just the right amount of boost when you’re in the mood for it. It’s now time for you to try some of these products. Do you have a favorite blue mascara that you can’t stop obsessing over? Share with me in the comments section below.
