Because my town of residence is the worst and internet shopping is still inexplicably insufficient, I didn't have access to these for a long while. I had to get someone to mail them to me, which is why I'm reviewing them a month and a half later than everyone else.
I could see from looking at the colors that some of them were going to be less dramatic than I might have wished. In particular, So Very Berry looks like a step above brown. Since Great Lash mascaras are really not impressive to me, I wanted to choose colors that would stand out. That way, it's clear why my mascara isn't giving me dense, long lashes. I don't want my lashes to look accidental. Consequentially, I chose what looked like the boldest of the colors: I See Blue, Vision in Violet, and Wink of Pink.
The blue color is a really bold, cool cerulean. The purple, sadly, despite the bold color on the tube, was pretty dusty and dark. The pink was a spectacular hot pink.
All three mascaras were very wet, meaning it was easy to end up with lashes that were all stuck together. I tried them over a white mascara primer in an attempt to coax out some extra length (Lancome Cils Primer XL) and, unfortunately, the clumping was even more extreme.
I was expecting, based on previous reviews, for I See Blue to be the most dramatic. It was definitely visible, but I felt like you couldn't really see it from a distance. If you're on a budget and you're lusting after a bright blue mascara, this might be a good option. That being said, I really prefer some of the slightly more expensive options. I recently tried out Butter London's Wink colored mascaras and I adore Inky Six, their cornflower blue. (I'll review it in the next week or two!)

Wink of Pink was my favorite by a longshot. The color was both vivid and saturated, creating a fabulous effect on my lashes. It was also the least clumpy out of the three that I tried.
