Try the Sephora purple mascara, I just grabbed one last shopping trip. Very reasonable price wise and wonderful lasts all day and just enough color to look great.

If you want it to stand out - I would go with blue. If you want it to accentuate brown eyes - I would go with purple. The only way I have gotten the purple to really be noticeable is to use a white lash primer first - like smashbox or dior

Either/Both. I think it depends more on the color of your eyes. I have green so purple contrasts well. Brown eyes I think can go with either. Not sure about Blue eyes, that's a judgement call. But they color will show up. And also consider your lid color behind the lashes. If it's daytime, go easy. Even a solid black liquid liner behind my purple last turns a blueish tinge in the sunlight. Nightime, doesn't matter as much. Have fun!

Both colors would "show' on your lahes; however, the important question is which color looks better with your eyes? I personally have seen very few blue mascaras that look good... I would go with a dark purple which would look great with both blue and brown eyes.

How well do the colors show up?
On brown lashes do the blue and the purple show up? Or are they just there with no difference in color?

I did notice a little irritation but this was after a long day of wear (hot summer day!) I think this might be due to my own under eye swiping to clear off the nasty eye sweat, blech. It doesn't flake though, which can really bother me since I am a contact lens wearer. Hope this helps!

For dark brown/ brown eyes, emerald or sage green mascaras and plum or deep violet mascaras look best. Brown eyes tend to reflect deep shades of red or yellow and these mascara colours will complement them.
