    I commented this on another thread, but as it wasn’t completly related to the topic, I thought I would make a new one.

    So with the mascara recipe in the book, you use kaolin clay and color it with black iron oxide. I’ve been thinking about exchanging the black iron oxide for blue, for blue mascara. I’ve also thought about doing purple, using blue iron oxide and carmine for the colors.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    I think that would work just fine, as long as the colorants were eye safe. That sounds like a great experiment!! Blue and purple mascara sound so fun! Post pics!!

    I made the blue, and it worked great! More interesting than black 😉

    Mix 75% of the black as blue and add 25% blue.

    You’re welcome.

    I’m a little confused as to what you mean Penny. You mean use 75% black and 25% blue? I think that would create a very… black color. I made mine with just blue iron oxide and it isn’t super obvious that it’s blue on the eyelashes.

    What Penny has suggested sounds a lot like the super black pigment that TKB used to sell; it’s a super lovely cool, rich black thanks to the blue ultramarine!

    YES! Marie gets me!

    I took the inspiration from one of the green eye liners in the book where it was like 3 spoons of green and one black. I wanted a mascara to be like a raven’s feather. So black it’s got blue sheen to it. I cannot remember the recipe, but let’s say the mascara recipe is 4 spoons (I cannot remember the measurement so sticking with just spoons). Mix three spoons of black, and one spoon of blue. I found this recipe brings out the blue in my eyes, and I’ve also tried it with green. My eyes went crazy green that day!

    Hmmmm….that does sound pretty! I will need to try that too, once I get out of lazy mode. School let out, kid went to camp, husband went out of town for a couple of days, so, I did NOTHING and it was FABULOUS!! And I’m stuck there…..😝😂
