I'm not adventurous with mascara colors but for a change, I think I'll try sporting colored mascara this 2013. Laura Mercier's Long Lash Mascara in Bleu would be a great start.
LAURA MERCIER LONG LASH MASCARA IN BLEU IN DETAIL
Here's the wand: It has even spacing, which makes it good for lengthening. The bristles are somewhat packed, and I've noticed that it makes my lashes a little fuller too. The consistency of the mascara is whipped and smooth, clings onto my lashes easily, and dries up quickly. Formula is waterproof. However, it has a tendency to clump for a wee bit so my technique is, I apply it starting at the base and I move the wand slowly towards the tips of my lashes--it gets rid of bigger and nastier clumps.
Bleu is described by Laura Mercier as a vintage kind of blue, but methinks it's a muted shade of Cobalt Blue. FYI, Blue looks good on warm skin tones, specifically Cobalt Blue. (Also Turquoise, Aqua, and Royal Blue) Being a painter herself, Laura Mercier is really talented when it comes to coming up with colors that don't only look good to the eyes, but also when applied on the skin. I've also noticed that her makeups are true-to-color, meaning what you see on the pan is what you'll get on your skin.

LAURA MERCIER LONG LASH MASCARA IN BLEU IN ACTION
I stop on the third coat because I just want the blue color to accentuate my eyes. If I go overboard, the overall look becomes weird. :p
Bleu gives my eyes a faint blue glow, and brightens up my complexion. Unlike cheap blue mascaras, this one doesn't wash me out, and doesn't look too fake and over-the-top.
Regarding staying power, it stays put all day yet it comes off easily with makeup remover.
Most of the time, I use it along with a blue or blue-violet eyeliner to complete the look.
Colored mascara is a great alternative to eyeshadows, and it's a quick way to add a touch of color to your eyes. However, I don't think this color is really necessary--it's just nice to have. But if you want a nice lengthening mascara, I would recommend this product because it does make lashes appear a wee bit longer.
