ALL ABOUT MASCARA REVIEW

I have always been obsessed with lashes. I started with mascara’s, then stepped it up a notch to extensions. On my green journey I discovered the store bought and department store mascaras are full of toxins and so was the glue used for my eyelash extensions. So I ditched both and switched to Nuvalash (code ALICIA30 will save you at checkout) to help grow my own lashes longer, stronger, and fuller plus I have been trying the top non-toxic mascaras that are green beauty cult favorites.

PER-FEKT MASCARA.jpg

PER-FEKT LASH PERFECTION GEL

I started out getting all of my makeup from Citrine Natural Beauty Bar, when I made the switch to non-toxic products. So it was no different with mascara. They offer a variety of mascara options. I just happened to see that per-fekt was recommended that month and if you follow their Instagram they post makeup of the day pictures and outline everything they use and this was something it seemed was used a lot.

From the very first time I used it I have loved it! Absolutely zero complaints. It glides on very smooth, no clumping, and you can layer it to achieve the desired results. My lashes felt very nourished and looked almost glossy or silky. No drying or irritation. This is the perfect universal mascara I think anyone would be very happy with.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

It’s more than a mascara! lash perfection gel is a silky smooth color gel that per-fekts and enhances the appearance of the lashes offering an easy alternative to traditional mascara, lash primer, conditioner, and enhancers.

This ultra modern formulation glides on effortlessly to strengthen, lengthen, darken, condition, prime and per-fekt lashes. Smudge-resistant and clump-free, lash perfection gel provides natural, buildable coverage and leaves the lashes looking luscious.

Multi-coiled brush lifts, forms, and enhances the volume and length of lashes including those you did not know you had! Marine Plant Glycogen works like a natural lash extender and Hyaluronic Microspheres and Panthenol hydrate and moisturize to help lashes appear shiny and strong.

HYNT MASCARA.jpg
HYNT BEAUTY NOCTURNE MASCARA
There has been a lot of hype recently surrounding this mascara. After seeing a few green beauty bloggers mention they have tried all the mascara’s under the sun and hynt nocturne was the best they have ever used. Naturally I was intrigued and it made me wonder if this was the holy grail on non-toxic mascara’s. So I had to try it. I purchased mine from the site directly during the holidays and it came in a cute gift set with a few other fun goodies!
I can see why it was such a hit. The mascara is very thick and the brush is very dense. You only need a few strokes to make your lashes look noticeably thicker. I am not the best with mascara application. I am about of practice from the umpteen years I have had my extensions so I don’t usually grab this one for my everyday look because as careful as I try to be I always end up with some on my upper lid and I don’t have the time to deal with all that everyday with the kids. With that being said this is perfect for a more dramatic look on the rare occasion I get dressed up and socialize. Especially for photographs, this mascara makes your eyes pop!
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Infused with a lash-revitalizing blend of vitamins, antioxidants and natural plant extracts, NOCTURNE conditions and softens eye lashes while helping to prevent eyelash breakage. Formulated with no FD&C dyes and no irritiants, NOCTURNE is a gentle, everyday mascara that won’t smudge, clump, flake or dry out.

LILY LOLO MASCARA
Erin (@fireflyfieldsliving) a fellow green beauty blogger had mention Lily Lolo is her favorite and we love a lot of the same things so I added this to my list. On the hunt to purchase Lily Lolo I discovered an AMAZING online green beauty store, Safe & Chic. They have generously offered my followers 10% off with code green10! It is the perfect one stop shop for so many of my favorite products including my new shaving cream I am obsessed with.
I can see why she loves it. The brush is almost identical to per-fekt, giving your lashes an even coating from the base to the ends. The mascara is thicker, darker, and almost matte giving a more defined look to your lashes. If you want to show off your lashes everyday this is the mascara for you!

W3LL PEOPLE MASCARA

While I was browsing Safe & Chic’s site I discovered the w3ll people mascara. This is another one I had seen on my Instagram feed and after seeing the description and awards I knew I needed to add it to the list for comparison!
One word sums up this mascara, definition! The brush is insanely unique. It is an elongated oval with hard short bristles. You can seriously get every lash both upper and lower lids with ease. The mascara is medium consistency so it doesn’t smudge when applying to the corners. If you are very precise about the look that you want to create or like the option of layering one mascara to go from subtle to dramatic this is the one for you!
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

This boundary breaking formula creates big, bold fluffy lashes instantly. AND it nourishes thanks to a synergistic botanical blend. Hyper pure mineral pigments create the blackest of black for highly defined luxurious lashes. Our new high tech brush design, with injection molded rubber and a unique cascade shape, precisely separates the thinnest, shortest, hard-to-reach lashes by expertly scooping up and lengthening each one—while delivering just the right amount of product. This wonder wand works for both tight lining AND building. We know because it’s been through rigorous professional testing. You can feel confident in making a beautiful choice because there are no harsh artificial chemicals or petroleum derivatives that can irritate the sensitive eye area. 100% cruelty-free, petroleum-free, paraben free, gluten-free, coal tar-free, aluminum-free, fiber-free, and clump-free!
