Lash-Lovies in Smitten is a bright reddish-pink metallic-finish mascara. If the above sentence hasn't already got you running screaming for the hills, but instead you're thinking "interesting.... what fun... wonder what looks I could get up to with that...." then this might be for you. The quality's decent, it thickens the lashes moderately well and has a lot more pigment than a lot of other coloured mascaras I've tried. On the other hand, application is a little bit fiddly and you don't seem to get a whole lot in the tube. I like to play with Smitten from time-to-time when going for an outrageous look, and from my own experiments it looks best worn "clashingly" with oranges, greens and turquoises (Mac electric eel! Wow!) worn in a "tropical flower"-hued fun look. From my experience, Smitten looks really odd with a nude eye, and when I tried it with pink eyeshadows it just looked like I had something wrong with my eye, but any other suggestions of looks to try with this product would be much appreciated as I do think it's a LOT of fun! One final tip: if you've got Smitten (or any other coloured mascara) on your lashes, I recommend also brushing a *tiny* little bit through your eyebrows too, as I think it just balances things up a bit and softens the harshness of the un-naturally coloured lash.
