Some Links In This Post Are Affiliate Links, See Disclosure For More Details
Are you a fellow mascara lover like me? I use makeup fairly minimally, but one thing I usually am sure to apply is mascara. For me I feel like it gives the most reward for my time spent as it helps to open up my small eyes and many times on those tired, early mornings that is just what I need. Now, with eyelashes, and thus mascara, being in constant contact with your eyes I find it very important to find a mascara that is chemical free with a low probability for sensitivities. Of course I also find it important for my mascara to STAY PUT!! These are the two main things that I was looking for when finding a mascara to fit into my new toxin free makeup routine. Read on to find out if Lily Lolo proved to be the one for me!
Ingredients: aqua (water), myrica pubescens fruit cera (myrica pubescens fruit wax), propanediol, copernicia cerifera cera (copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax), polyglyceryl-6 distearate, sucrose stearate, acacia senegal gum, glyceryl dibehenate, helianthus annuus seed cera (helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed wax), lactobacillus ferment bis-octyldodecyl dimer dilinoleate/propanediol copolymer, polyglyceryl-10 myristate, oryza sativa bran cera (oryza sativa (rice) bran wax), glyceryl caprylate, rosa canina fruit oil, argania spinosa kernel oil, xanthan gum, potassium sorbate, glyceryl undecylenate, [may contain ci 77499 (iron oxides)].
Texture: The texture is a good consistency, not too thick or thin and neither too oily or too dry. A very smooth consistency all the way around.
Ease of Use: I have been using this product routinely for over 6 months now and I have never had issues with applying, it always glides on easily with no clumping whatsoever. I also typically do not have any issues with the mascara being too "wet" and leaving marks underneath my eyes after applying.
Results: This mascara is just phenomenal! It claims to add volume and drama to lashes and after months of using daily, I agree that it does just that! I can wear it all day without any smudges and even though it is not waterproof I have minimal running if and when I do have watery eyes! Because this product is free of harsh chemicals, fragrance, silicon, and alcohol, it is suitable for sensitive eyes and I have never had any issues with sensitivity.
Cost: For a standard sized mascara tube of 7mL the cost is $20.00
Overall Grade: This product absolutely gets an A from me for being plant based, non toxic and vegan while still providing great volume and staying power. And don't just take my word for it, this mascara has also been the recipient of many beauty awards including the Green Beauty Bible Award as well as the winner for "Best Natural Mascara" in the 2015 Natural Health International Beauty Awards. I will tell you that I have had mainstream high priced mascaras that don't even perform as good as this one so for me this is a true win, especially considering the reasonable price!
