MISSION: SAFER MASCARAS

A couple weeks ago, I posted that I was on a mission to find a new mascara that had a low rating with the EWG.  Since I’m a lash girl and like my lashes long, defined, voluminous and curled, this was definitely a tall order. Not only did I have to find a mascara that performed well, but I also had to search for one that was void of as many toxins as possible. Yikes!  So I did some research and picked up 4 popular mascaras, that were rated 2 or lower.  (You can read more about EWG’s rating system here).

Below I’m listing how they rated, and what my top favorite is. Now, since you’re armed with a list of safer options, it might be time for you to throw out your old standby and try something new!

1.  Physician’s Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Lash Boosting Mascara – I wanted to find a drugstore option and this is definitely rated the lowest of them all. However, it’s not my favorite.  It’s a great choice if you’re in search of a natural look, but it just doesn’t give me enough “oomph”.

2. bareMinerals Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara – I was excited that this was rated well because bareMinerals is easy to find and they have a few different mascara options.  I definitely think this is a good everyday mascara and the fact that their waterproof option is also rated low, is a major plus.

3. Per-fékt Beauty Lash Perfection Gel – I really like this mascara and an even better version is due to come out this summer, that delivers long, separated lashes with volume and curl (I can’t wait!) i-019474-argan-black-oil-mascara-2-940

4. Josie Maran Argan Black Oil Mascara – This mascara is a winner.  Besides it’s adorable tube, the bubbled wand catches every lash and delivers longer, more voluminous lashes that aren’t clumpy or stiff. I love that it’s buildable and doesn’t flake, but comes off easily with face wash or makeup remover.  I don’t even miss my old mascara and I’ll be sticking with this one! (At least until the next best thing comes along!)
