Girly post alert!
Sometime in high school, when I was finally allowed by my parents to start experimenting with makeup, I learned that plums, browns and purples were the best colors to use on my eyes if I wanted my green eyes to "pop." While that term annoys me, it's true—these colors really do compliment the green.
I found an auburn mascara by Rimmel sometime in college and was hooked. When they stopped making it, I was heartbroken—but one trip to Ulta and I found someone better to love—Benefit's BADgal plum mascara.
I don't wear it every day, but it's great for the days I want a little color without any eyeshadow or liner. Benefit doesn't test on animals, and the formula's great, too (if you're not looking for 24-hour wear), and it washes off with ease. It's not the cheapest at $19 a tube, but it lasts a decent while. And what can I say? I'm worth it.*
*That would be a reference to L'Oreal's "Because I'm worth it" slogan, not me being cheeky.
