One of the most difficult products to find in the organic world is a mascara that does a good job: in my case that means volumes the eyelashes, not getting clumps and something that does not flake and gives me panda eyes. I decided to purchase this product as it says it is waterproof. I also compromised on the silicone (it does contain this ingredient). In summer in Milan I need a mascara with proper staying power!
The price is not crazy steep so I decided to go ahead and to purchase it.
PERFORMANCE: I have used this mascara in summer in Milan. This means temperatures of about 40 degrees and super humid climate. Makeup literally melts on your face. This mascara separates the lashes very well without the spider lash effect. The volume is really good and at the same time the lashes are not glued together. No clumps, it tends to flake a little bit.
Very easy to take it off at night with a little bit of sweet almond oil. Overall it is a good mascara. I love the volumising effect, really good!
INGREDIENTS: Carnauba (copernicia cerifera) wax, palm kernel (elaeis guineensis) wax, soybean (gyicine soja) seed oil, dimethicone, calcium stearate, mamey (pouteria sapota) oil, sweet almond (prunus amygdalus dulcis) oil, sopropyl palmitate, avocado (persea gratissima) oil, palmitic acid, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), orange (citrus aurantium dulcis) oil, lemon (citrus medica limonum) oil, bergamot (citrus bergamia) oil, iron oxides
SCENT: yes, not too strong. It is not annoying as the mascara is applied on the lashes and my nose cannot pick up the scent once the mascara is applied.
HOW TO USE IT: it does add volume so I suggest applying this mascara in layers. Start by curling your eye lashes and then apply a coat of mascara. The wand is conical and allows you to reach also the lashes in the corners.
Then let it dry and if you feel you need more vavavoom go for a second layer. No more than that as it would look blatantly fake – unless that’s the look you want to go for.
CONTENT AND PACKAGING:
10ml. It is contained in a white carton box and a white plastic tube. It lasts for 6 months after opening it.
