Quick Question: Colored Mascara

I'm kind of obsessed with blue and green mascara (thanks to Caroline and Anne for feeding this habit with beauty closet bounty!). And yes, that's why Violet is always swiping on blue mascara in Violet on the Runway.I've tried to showcase my blue lashes here: IMG_0770.jpg I know that isn't really clear--photographing your own eye is tough! I (perhaps naively) imagine myself looking like this: pic_vibrant.jpg But I worry that I'm stuck in the 80s, when I wasn't old enough to wear makeup but worshipped rainbow-lashed rockstars from afar. So, I ask you this: Colored lashes--chic and subtle way to stand out, or tacky throwback trend? Your comments are appreciated.
