My Favorite Natural Mascara
I had been a repeat buyer of Loreal Voluminous mascara when I decided to stop buying pricey department store brands. I think the result is great from Loreal, but I decided to see if I could find a more natural alternative. Ironically, now I'm back to buying pricey mascaras!
Who knows how much a mascara really affects our health, I mean I don't like to be extreme. However I do believe an accumulation of toxic products can't be good for us, especially when we use a lot of products with chemicals every day that soak into our skin.
The next one I decided to try, Zuzu Luxe, was handy to buy because I could pick it up at Whole Foods. I'm using it right now and it's an ok mascara if you like a more natural look. I would compare it with Clinique Glossy Mascara. I have to layer it though to get the volume that I want and even though it does layer well, I can't be bothered with all that work.
Finally, drum roll please, my favorite mascara is by 100% pure pictured above, which I have tried it in black tea and blackberry, a plummy color. The first thing you will love about this one is that it smells fruity when you put it on because it's pigmented with fruit! The second is the beautiful silver container. It's the little pleasures in life that make me happy! I really didn't want to like this mascara the best because of the price, but I'm a believer and will be ordering more. I'm excited to try more of their products, but only when I finish up my latest project of course. (I've already finished 9 products!)
If you are looking to try a natural mascara and want to try this one, I have good news for you! This weekend they are having a promotion for free shipping so it's a perfect time to try out this or some of the other fab products. I have also tried their concealer and bubble bath and I am a fan. If you are curious about what makes this mascara so special, you can see how awesome this ingredient list is below.
