The L’Oreal Paris False Lash Flutter Midnight Blacks (try saying that after a few glasses of wine..) is a new collection that uses a black base for both liners and mascaras, making them the very deepest shades of purple and blue. They give a ‘nuance’ effect rather than a colour effect – unless someone is really staring into your eyes, only you will know.

Blue Black is almost more grey than blue, but it’s a deep shade so will look incredible on blue eyes; Purple Black is slightly more obviously tinted.

On my arm above, Purple Black, Blue Black and Black. In the US, the False Lash Effect Mascara is called Butterfly Effect, I think, but it’s the same thing, different name.

The two Midnight Black Superliners have heavy black undertones so again, it’s a question of nuance, but I do think these can enhance eye colour in a way that straight black can’t.

Again, the purple is stronger than the blue. If you’re going for a complete blue or purple eye look, these will definitely add to that but personally, I like them for something a little bit different just pretty much on their own. They’ll cost £6.49 and Mascaras £10.99. Both products will launch any day now – you might be lucky and find them in some areas already.
